My Bluenotes

Of some of the commercials I like this season, the Bluenotes one kinda caught my attention today. It's the one with everyone talking about what they've done and where they've been in their jeans.

And since I really do love my Bluenotes, here's the story of my jeans:

My jeans have :
been covered in snow up to the knees,
been "held up" with various coloured belts to compliment a particular outfit,
been used to wipe my hands when I couldn't find a towel,
traveled to the city to shop,
hurriedly ended up in a pile on the floor (wink wink!),
been coated in flour and sugar after baking cookies,
helped hold up a 30lb toddler attached to my hip,
stretched and bent to sit on the floor to play with said toddler,
mysteriously "shrunk" an entire size after coming out of the dryer,
held pocket change, notes to self, and gas receipts,
made the hubster take a second look at my butt (hehe!),
stood on stage to sing "8 bottles of moose meat" for the Newfie 12 days of Christmas,
paced back and forth,
been spilled and splashed upon,
sat and sat and sat while I finished that awesome book,
frayed at the bottom,
taken a plane ride,
anxiously sat through a tense conversation with an old friend,
worked and played,
held a napping baby on their lap,
been worn with heels or hiking boots, as relating to the occasion,
knelt to pray,
never rode a motorcycle,
endured endless hours of wear and tear for my comfort.

I love my jeans! Isn't it great when you find a good pair?!

So where has your denim taken you? (perhaps yours have been farther this fall/winter than mine...?)

You're such a good writer. Really!
Lately my jeans are covered in drywall dust and paint...trying to complete our basement before Christmas.
