So many adventures. So few times.

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 3 - God Bless Leggings

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?3
How long did it take you to get ready? 20 minutes
What did you do for your health? Ran 3 1/2 miles
What did you do differently than normal? I braided my hair, put on makeup... and (gasp) SHAVED MY LEGS! Also, tunic, boot socks, belt... ya know, the extras.
Where did you go/what did you do? Every other Wednesday, I do make a point to get dressed. Mainly because my play group meets up at Caribou Coffee for gossip and general socializing while the kids break things/eat each others' snacks/show off their new walking skills (!!!Yay Joshy!!!). Anywho, today was that magical Wednesday. I would have put forth a little effort regardless, but I figured I'd snazz it up a la the challenge.
Did you feel any differently? I felt really caffeine deprived since I didn't get my daily joe until almost 10 am. Also, I felt sort of... trendy? Weird. Trendy =/= Buffy. 
I kind of dig it though...

First, can we discuss the amazingness that are leggings? While they can be hugely unflattering, ultimately it's a combo of yoga pants and tights. Throw a long shirt on and you look like you actually tried. Seriously, I don't know why I don't own more pairs, and why I'm not wearing them every day that the yogas are put away. Foolish Buffy.
I'm getting a tattoo with my amazing, gorgeous, hilarious, smarty-pants friend Tiffany this weekend and I've been working diligently on the design. Is it taboo and/or bad luck to give sneak previews? I really want to show someone what I came up with (especially since I was laying in bed last night sobbing - that's right, sobbing - at my design and placement). I'll just show up and pretend that I might not get this exact tattoo on the side of my forearm where my daughter used to rest her head every night as she fell asleep. Yup. Cuz I might not get this. Ahem.

The scripture referenced is as follows (NIV), "Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him." I love the visual reminder that my kid is a blessing, not just a terror.

Don't tell me you hate it, because I'll probably break up with you.


  1. I dig it. Great tattoo idea! (Don't leave me EVER. Said in a creepy stalkerish way)

  2. I wore jeggings today! I love them. Now if my damn camera would work...

  3. You are inspiring me to try leggings because you look so freaking adorable lady. Now I just have to wait til it turns into fall here (December)

  4. OMG I love it! Love it! Love it! And for the leggings...I'll have to try a pair because you look so freakin adorable and totally trendy!!!
