Pajama Party

Cold + Rain = Hot Breakfast

In my PJ’s

Got these comfy flannel babies online

EXACTLY the same print I had as a kid!!!

The Vermont Country Store is my newest obsession. They have actual stores, but their catalogue

…much like Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer, are my go-to bathtub reading material

Everything!!!  From candy

…to prepared foods

…to home goods (obviously clothing + sleepwear too)

I was sent a plethora of things to sample – Pickles, Avocado Oil, Crackers

…can’t wait to make pumpkin pancakes when there’s more time…

…but for now there’s oatmeal in a flash –

I’m really sad my Umpqua stash is running out because they are worlds better than other instant brands. Abe’s been eating them at work and is a big fan, too.

Just found out that “X’s and O’s” – a movie I made years ago – is now available on Netflix Instant – I may stay in my PJ’s for a few more hours and watch it!

  • Anna @ On Anna’s Plate

    Ahhhhhh, LOVE ’em!!! My sister and I had matching nightgowns with that pattern!!

    Hey! My Grandma used to work at the Vermont Country Store. It was so fun to go there as a kid and get penny candy. :)

  • Woods Hole Inn

    I loved my Lanz nighties. Wore them all through high school until they were rags. :)

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen)

    Oats definitely warm the soul! Looks like a perfect rainy day to me!

  • em

    today would have been perfect for an all day pajama party in comfy pjs.
    and pumpkin pancakes are definitely a fave!

    I’ve been so curious about Umpqua oats! I’ve seen them but wasn’t sure if I would like them (I usually don’t care for instant oats) but these actually look delicious!

    • Lynn at The Actors Diet

      yeah – they’re A LOT better than the envelope kind.

    I also love perusing foodie-catalogs! It’s so fun to see what new products there are out there, especially ones that aren’t found around where you live!

  • Kristine

    I wish my bedroom was at tidy as yours! How do you do it??

  • Emily Dryden

    Your PJ’s are adorable! I love them. And catalogues like that make my day. So much fun to sift through and gawk over.

    Fun post Lynn! Love your colorful stories and fantastic pix! And don’t you look great in your Lanz jambes? Now if only the dog had a matching set….

  • Kimberly

    Hmpf. I meant Lanz JAMMIES but auto correct had other ideas….. :)

  • Erin | The Other Side of the Road

    So funny. I remember being obsessed with Vermont Country Store’s soy oatmeal, an obsession passed along by my friends. We regularly cleared out the grocery stores of the oatmeal whenever we could find it way back when in Brooklyn. Now your post, which was great because I had no idea Vermont Country Store had a whole catalogue, and just the other day Valerie posted on FB about their amazing customer service.
