My life is pretty dull. I play with a toddler, watch a lot of Yo Gabba Gabba and experiment with the crock pot. I have no bed time and I find humor in Laffy Taffy jokes. Conan O'Brien is my anti-drug.

Mommy Makeover Day 2 - Fancy Pants

Check out the Naptown Organizer's blog to see other participants and to view the gorgeous Jayne in all of her done-up glory!
Day of the Challenge? 2
How long did it take you to get ready? 25 minutes
What did you do for your health? Jogged 2 1/2 miles on treadmill, will walk another 1 1/2 - 2 this afternoon.
What did you do differently than normal? Heavy-ish eyeshadow, curled hair... I PUT ON A FLIPPING DRESS!!!
Where did you go/what did you do? Walking to the library and getting supplies for dinner at the store are planned for later. I also have a HUGE bag of clothes to give to the Goodwill this afternoon thanks to the giant closet clean out, inspired by both this challenge and a few episodes of Hoarders I watched last night.
 I also have grand plans to clean the floors today. In a dress. And tights.
Did you feel any differently?  I feel pretty stinking fancy. Mainly because I'm not wearing any pants.
 ~*~
To know me, you know a few things. 1) I run every morning and 2) If I'm going to do something, I'm going to go over-the-top or completely fail. There is no in-between. And since I decided after yesterday's sad [Getzen] trombone performance on my part, I was going to step up my game. But first, you have to see what I'm starting with. After my morning miles on the treadmill, I'm tired. I'm red-faced. I'm wanting coffee. And a nap. 
I decided today I'd curl my hair post-shower. And wear heavier eye shadow. You'd never believe that I used to fully do my hair every.single.day. It wasn't even that long ago! The mom-gene got the best of me though and here we are today, having to challenge ourselves to not wear PJs all day long.  Having my kid say, "Oooh" when I walked into her room after my shower/mascara application/hair curling... that says a ton. Apparently she even noticed my constant ponytails and stretchy pants. 
Yikes.

  1. I love that she likes you all fancy! You look really pretty, but I think you'll get a pass from everyone on the planet if you change your clothes to scrub floors.

    I eagerly await the rest of the week's updates, because I think you just have the best style!

  2. Gorgeous Mama! Also, I wish I had your stomach :( Hopefully hard work will eventually get me close to yours, haha. Have fun cleaning the floors; let me know how that goes in a dress. At least you'll look fancy doing it, hah.
