Yes, I love my PINK robe........

I have this pink robe that is probably 15 years old. I LOVE it. It's hot pink and long and actually goes around me, and is made of terry cloth. I can't stand that new polyester whatever material that robes are made of now. They are supposed to be soft and all comfy wonderful, but I want a robe that soaks us excess moisture when I get out of the shower, one that is warm, and one that doesn't have static cling!

So, needless to say, my robe is a BIT worn out. Like, I have a hole the size of a crock pot on the shoulder in the back! And various other places that are thin. My husband said "I will buy you a new robe!" But the kind I want is hard to find - at least something that I can afford! Most of the long terry robes are $80-100!

At Christmastime, my husband searched on the internet and found a possiblity -- but white......nice price - $40 - it was at a place called Sierra Trading Post. I liked it - they had my size - he said GET IT. But I put it off and put it off.....and then one day I decided okay - white it will be. I have black dogs, so wasn't too excited about white, plus my favorite color is PINK!

So I go back to the website and GUESS WHAT! They have PINK now!!!! (This was at Christmastime). I immediately check the return policy -- I read all the reviews -- it has to be real terry and plush and long and big (cuz I am definitely bigger than at Christmas (bleh!).......I order one, knowing I have a 100% money back guarantee!
And oh my goodness! It is perfect - better than the original - softer, longer, bigger, and I LOVE it!

So my friends tease my about my pink robe, because I am always talking about it and I wear it a lot! :)
So look what I get in the mail:

I got the above card from my friend Billie. I laughed so hard. I knew something was up when a couple of days later this one from Stacy came:

Now Stacy knows that I love my OLD one too -- when I first saw this card, I was all concerned that the Post Office had mangled it in one of their machines -- so there I am -- trying to fix the edge of the robe, and then DUH! The light bulb finally comes on and I see that Stacy has made it all ratty and torn! HAHA She thinks I need to dump my old robe now! NOT! What would I color my hair in??? She also knows that I surf the net in my new robe, with my hair not even yet combed! What a hoot!
Not to be outdone, Angel sends this one:

Isn't that a hilarious sentiment to use for my dearly loved NEW robe???
And for the last -- Deborah sent me this one, with a computer generated sentiment.

We both love the theater, so the inside says "It is the robe of Thespis!" Isn't that clever? I have some crazy friends.....and they really make my life way more fun! And PINK!
By the way -- need a new robe? Check out Sierra Trading Post!!!

Thanks for reading my story!
