Happy Valentine's Day from Joe

Joe's Jeans, coupon, discount, Valentin's Day, jeans
In November I was contacted by Joe's Jeans to conduct a review for them on my blog. I was so excited! I got to pick out my style from their website and then I had to tell them my size. Should be easy, right? You would think I would know my own size but NO. Let me explain of course how I came up with the wrong size. I am used to purchasing pants that come in sizes such as 0,1,3,5,7,9,11,etc. I am very petite so I do still shop in the juniors section unless I am shopping at Petite Sophisticated. Joe's Jeans come in sizes such as 24,25,26,27,28,29,30. I must have been having a blonde moment when I decided to take out a measuring tape and measure the outside of my pants. I thought it seemed like a good plan, how could I go wrong? Well apparently I didn't know what the heck I was doing and the number I came up with was way off from the number I wear. To tell you the truth I don't even know how I came up with this number. I have been married in the past and my former spouse used to wear about a 32/34 therefore I should have known if the number I got was close to that, then it was wrong, of course keyword there is SHOULD. So needless to say when I received my Joe's Jeans, while jumping for joy, ripped them open to be highly disappointed I couldn't wear them. They were five sizes too big. Yes, FIVE. I know, what kind of idiot measures five sizes larger? The company has been so gracious to let me send the jeans back and exchange for the right size. They found a way to dumby proof my sizing guess by sending me to Nordstrom's to try some on. Now my jeans are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday and again I am super excited! I can't wait to conduct my full review, although I know I'll love them, the denim was so soft. I also plan to sport my new jeans at BlissDom!

Joe's Jeans is loving him some mommas. Their blog campaigns have done so well they wanted to offer a special Valentine's Day coupon code for all our wonderful readers. You can buy a pair of jeans for yourself and get 50% off a pair for your LOVE. Or you could just get yourself another pair half price. Use code: Joeslovesmomma which is good until February 23rd.

DJane I salute you on the acquisiion of the free jeans for a review AND on being so petite! You didn't include a link to a shot of the jeans you chose in your post, and I admit to being curious. Any chance?

That's so cool though. Yes, show us which you picked.

And very happy to have found another single mom blogger. Hope you stop by mine as well -

I can not believe you have three, work at home and go to school. You must be absolutely amazing!

I so totally love my Joe's Jeans that I got from the same promotion. But unfortunately I washed mine before I realized they were too big. So now I save them for PMS days, lol. But they ARE so comfy. If I buy another pair, I know to go down a size b/c they STRETCH.

You look so cute in your photo above at Blissdom in your Joes.
