How many pairs of yoga pants do you own?


I have six pairs.

And yes, yes I call them yoga pants because it seems cooler. It is one step closer to *actually* doing yoga so....let me be ;)

Six pairs. Yet, every single time I see a nice pair I yearn for more. There are boot cuts, skinny's, capris, sweats, spandex, moisture wicking fabric and on. I must have one of every kind I say. I need a 'nicer' pair to wear out for preschool drop off I say...

My husband however looks at me with one of those side look, eyebrow raised faces. He believes one *maybe* two pairs for when the other is dirty is enough. This gets me wondering. Am I a yoga pants addict or is this NOT a normal thought process?

Four of seven days a week I play stay at home momma. I'm on the floor, running after a toddler or covered in some sort of food item. They are part of my uniform. The other three days I work in an office and have to wear presentable clothes. The moment I get home I can think of nothing more than putting on a pair of nice yoga pants. (And maybe taking off my bra-ha--you know you do too) Therefore, my life revolves around this singular item of clothing. 

Ten years ago I had about eight pairs of jeans. Prebaby of course. Today, well today comfort is king. My pants role in my life has flipped. Ten years ago I was put together on the outside but not so much on the inside. Today, I feel God has refined my inner beauty enough that clothes just don't matter to me as much. Don't get me wrong, I love clothes, a lot.

A lot. 

And shoes. Don't get me started...

What. I am saying ladies is, let's be comfortable in our skin today and in who God created us to be. Let's remember that you are a girl in yoga pants growing into who God designed you to be. He is forming your soul while you guide your little peoples souls toward Him. Be comfortable. Be happy. You may be unshowered and have baby puke on both shoulders, but you are still as beautiful in those yoga pants as in your skinny jeans. Beautiful because of the way you love.
Beautiful and less stressed. 
You rock em!  Put on some lip gloss and face that day with might and power momma! Maybe a little actual yoga would help too ;) (wink)

Seriously- how many do you own??

Today, I figure I need two more pairs of yoga pants to be at an even keel to where I was in my jeans stash ten years ago. Makes perfect sense, right? Oh and a matching black zip up would be great too....

Happy weekend. Enjoy those yoga pants! Xo-rach


Collosians 3 says," So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it."
