pipe dream

Do you have a favorite pair of jeans?  
You know.  The ones that fit in all the right places, are super comfy and make you look mad fabulous??  Now do you remember?
  
I do.  I have these jeans and they are perfect.  Let me say it again, p-e-r-f-e-c-t.  Perfect.  They look good with everything.  I can dress them up.  I can dress them down.  Wear them with my lazy black flip-flops, my cute red ballet flats or my sexy brown boots.  Heck, I can sleep in these jeans if I wanted to.  And I want to.  Seriously.  And I'm pretty sure I already have.  And I'm pretty sure Mike gave me a strange look as I crawled into bed to enjoy a nice (and necessary) Sunday nap.  It was the same look he gave me the first time he realized I wear socks to bed in the winter.  He has this 'thing'...socks go in your shoes, not under your covers...

But I recently learned there is a method to the wonderful madness of the perfect jean.  And how to get those jeans to become perfect if they are not already.  Can't you just picture it?  You open your closet, and to your giddy delight, every pair you own glows with absolute perfection???  {insert rapid heartbeat}   

Of course, every good pipe dream comes with a down-side.  And here it is: the less you wash them, the more they 'form' to your body.

I know.  I know.  I know.

Way gross.

If you don't believe me, there's this crazy new craze out there about 'raw denim'.  Read all about it here.  

It's food for thought.  
But if it gets on my jeans, I'm washing them.

I guess having only one pair of favorite jeans is a way to help me appreciate and love them all the more.
But then again....
