Middle school was the absolute worst. I would not relive ages 11-14 for one hundred bajillion dollars. (Okay, I would, but not for a penny less.) Between fighting with my mother about going to the mall with my friends and trying to tame my hair-helmet on a daily basis, there’s not a lot of good to recall from those years. One shining spot of happiness, however, is my Lisa Frank folder. And my Lisa Frank notebook. And Lisa Frank trapper-keeper. And Lisa Frank pencils. And Lisa Frank stickers…

But what did I NOT have back in 1990 that would have made sleepovers a whole lot better? LISA FRANK PAJAMAS. However, thanks to Target, I CAN live out that dream. At 37 years old. 

That’s right, ladies. For around $15-20,Target is now offering a line of Lisa Frank pajamas FOR GROWNUPS. Check out this super cute tiger nightgown. If this doesn’t take me back to my days of doodling “K (heart) J” I don’t know what will. 

Or this unicorn one, which is the EXACT design that I picked for my 5th grade reading folder. Because UNICORNS.

Or, if you’re like me and haven’t worn a nightgown in 20 years, Target is also offering super comfy 2-piece sets like these. 

Your husband is either going to be totally creeped out by you channeling your middle-school self, or happy to return to his younger days too and find your new pjs a little enticing. I mean, the giant kisses on this set will get something going, right? At the very least, they’ll remind you of dreaming that you might kiss Jimmy by the swings after school. 

Either way you’ll feel young and comfortable. And maintain your loyalty to all things Target while a little nostalgia visits in your dreams. Maybe it’s time to plan a slumber party with your girlfriends! Throw on your LF pjs, start Children of the Corn or Poltergeist, and pop some popcorn. Only this time we get to trade in our juice boxes for wine!

***The word is out. Target is temporarily out of stock for most styles. Looks like everyone else wants to relive their middle school days too. But we ladies know our Target will come through for us in the end, so keep checking back!
