Fall Fun Ideas in Flannel Pajamas

Fall is More Fun in Flannel! Some Things Are Just Better in PJs

Summer has officially come to a close. It won’t be long before pajama season is in full swing. Crisp fall air, brisk mornings, chilly nights, crunchy leaves, and cozy blankets slowly steer us indoors before winter. Fall is a season that is based largely on the sense of smell and soft, warm textures. Just the thought of freshly baked goodies, ‘pumpkin spice’ scented everything, wool sweaters, cashmere scarves, and pillowy down comforters are enough to make you want to crawl back in bed for a long nap.

With our internal clock set to hibernate, it’s no wonder we don’t want to get out of our pajamas until April. Here is a list of our favorite fall activities that are far better when enjoyed in the comfort of our favorite flannel jammies.

10 Signs You’re a Homebody!

1. Your couch bears the permanent indentation of your body.

2. You just binge watched a whole season of House of Cards and you’re just coming back to life.

3. You curiously note that you replace your pajamas much more often than your jeans.

4. You’re on a first name basis with the Thai food delivery guy and you’re pretty sure he’s expecting a Christmas gift.

5. Your idea of the perfect night out is catching the early-bird special so you can come home after and immediately get in your PJs!

6. Books, books, books!  Need we say more?

7. Your friends call you the Imelda Marcos of slippers.

8. Snow day? No problem. Your pantry and fridge are already stocked to feed you for weeks on end!

9. When a friend calls to cancel plans, you’re not mad at all. In fact you feel like you just won the lottery!

Life in Pajamas

By Ellie Badanes

Life in pajamas pretty much says it all.  I admit it, I live and work in pajamas and I have the best excuse of all for this good habit.  My business is pajamas.  Hopefully you have visited my pajama world www.ThePajamaCompany.com filled with fabulous pajamas and other related goodies.  Actually it is wonderful to work in pajamas whatever your work might be.  Of course Entrepreneurs and bloggers are famous for working in pajamas.

I don’t know about you but I have always done my best work in pajamas, even before my pajama business days.  Everything is just a little less stressful in pajamas.  The world in a little happier in pajamas.  Books are more enjoyable, coffee tastes bolder, tea is more piping, diet coke is colder and snappier, magazines are more glossy, sit coms are funnier, couches are more comfy.  Pajamas can just bring out that bit of fun in kids as well as adults.  In pajamas wearing a “Watermelon” or “Pizza” or “Donut”  or “Snowman” print is, well, perfectly acceptable.  Can serious work be accomplished dressed in “Sock Monkey” pajamas one might ask…the answer is “Yes” of course!  So today, I’m celebrating Life in Pajamas.
