I decided to add a feature called, “What I’m wearing”. I only have a minute here because it is almost school pick up time but I am going to try and sum it up really quick. As a stay at home mom, I don’t get out much! I am new to all of this, I have only been home for a year and was supposed to return to work but was unable to find anything like my old job that could work with the babysitting we had available. It is a long story in itself that I will tell another time. But for right now, I had found myself in a real rut. I stopped doing my hair and wearing make up. I stopped dressing nice and feeling good about myself. I have lost almost fifty pounds in the past year getting back to and surpassing my pre-pregnancy weight.
My body feels great but I just completely stopped trying to look like anything but a tired, overworked mom. Because wow holy -cow. Being home means being on your feel 24×7! It is so much more work than anything I’ve ever done in my entire life. I never expected that. Seriously so many props to every single stay at mom out there. This is a lot. Being home by yourself surrounded by children it’s a lot. But, I love my kids more than anything on earth. I feel now like I just can’t leave them. They are my life and I want it that way. I want to be their life because they are mine.
But anyway I am so off track here it’s not even funny! I started taking selfies because I decided that I needed to get myself dressed every day and put make up on. That I needed to make my hair look nice and organize, paint and clean. That I needed to go above and beyond and then beyond that. Because it will never be good enough until it is. I know that I have not done the best job possible yet around here. I know that this house is far from being done but I am getting there. And I am looking much better doing it! Like seriously, my husband has been giving me compliments and there is nothing better than that. There is just nothing better then a happy home and feeling love in your life! So here are my first two days of “What I’m Wearing”! Which is mostly cat hair and old clothes from Walmart :).
Tuesday, March 21
Shirt: Walmart. Yes, that’s cat hair
Pants: Walmart circa, unknown
1st Day of selfies: No fun!
Wednesday, March 22
After watching some how to videos and purchasing a selfie stick…
Background: A much nicer corner
Shirt: Marshalls, many moons ago
Pants: Very Old Navy (see what I did there?! Insert smiley face Emoji here)
Shoes today! Cabelas Lifetime Warrantee boots that I have had on my feet for probably the accumulation of years at this point. And I love them more than any piece of clothing, ever. If the world was ending and I had to turn into a video game character that wore one outfit for eternity I would have to have on those boots.
And, my Carhartt jacket. See… New York: An Idiots Guide to the City that would be my uniform. For sure.
I’m just so happy that I am taking better pictures that I am going to post a bunch!
Complete with nose marks from my glasses 🙂
I just really like the way my hair looks here!! Why can’t it always look like this?!
Oh and this cutie had to get a cameo, of course!!!!
