I know, your probably sick of this “thank you” letter kick I’m on.
Suck it up, I’m gonna do two more and than back to normal Eden rambles.
Today, I’d like to thank something very vain. Yoga has done a lot for me spiritually and physically, but this is not a thank you letter to yoga. I thank yoga at every class I take when I bow my head to my heart.
No, this is a thank you letter to lululemon.
Where do I begin?! Well, the addiction started innocently enough with a pair of yoga pants. Now I’ve read the fabric description that you come up with to use in your yoga pants (“Luon”) and that’s all fine and good. But I’m pretty sure it’s some NASA scientist’s discovery on how to make every woman’s booty look good. I can weay them to yoga or to dinner. You can stuff them into Uggs. OK, I won’t win a fashion award for this look, but it’s the ultimate in comfort. They’re indeed an incredible improvement on sweats (as sweats make me feel fat, you?) and they make my legs look slim (especially black yoga pants). And hey just make me feel fit. Awesome, instead of the gym, I slip into yoga pants and I’m fitter already!
I love that you give discounts to yoga teachers in order to wear your gear and give feedback on items so you are constantly looking to improve on the original.
Being veritcaly challenges, most pants run super long on me. So I thank you tremendously for offering to hem them for free. Could you do some work on my jeans?
Yes, you can be pricy,but I wont hold that against you. I can buy a dress at $90 and wear it once or a ski jacket at $100+ that I wear maybe a few times a year. In my mind, based on my wear pattern of Lulu gear, I consider it money well spent.
And after being in Yoga teacher training school all day, I myself am spent.

And now lets look at the many ways I wear yoga pants:
Is there an article of clothing you’d like to thank? Do you have a “uniform”, an outfit you find yourself wearing all too frequently? Personally, I find myself resembling a Lululemon retail sales girl with flip flops. And no, I dont work at Lululemon, but they better start paying me dontcha think?
Ok, so like yesterday, I am testing some thanksgiving recipes for the big day. Oy….what a mess did I get myself into telling everyone I’m fine with hosting! Anyhow, these can be light dessert or appetizer. I tried these on the sweeter side today. You will need:
-peeled, seeded and steamed butternut squash (or pumpkin or any other type of winter squash)
-pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg
- 1 tbs brown sugar
(for a savory version, omit the sugar and try it with sage and a little butter)
Mash together the squash with the spices, sugar, and walnuts. Take a little spoonful of the mash and place it in the center of the wonton. Wet you finger and run it across the edges to ensure it seals. Fold the wonton wrapper in half and crimp the edges a little bit. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. It might take a little more or less but these wont take very long so dont go watch an episode of glee or something. Stick around the kitchen and check to see when they are golden. You can garnish with some cinnamon or powdered sugar or some kosher salt if you are making savory ones.
