I realize that I didn't get a post up yesterday.. Sorry about that!!. I had a very busy but fun day!!
I spent the day yesterday at the splash pad with a good friend and her little guy. They're visiting from out of town.
She came over last night with her hubby and both boys, and we had a great time.
It's so hard when good friends move away.. We're trying to convince them to move back, but I don't think we're getting anywhere.. For now,, we have to settle with short visits...
When they first arrived, I realized that I had nothing to offer them to drink.(It wasn't a planned get together) We don't keep booze in the house very long.. lol
Anyway,, I offered to go get wine. My friend said that it wasn't necessary but I totally felt it was..
I left her with all the kids while the men did some work, and off I went..
I grabbed my keys and my bank card and high tailed it to the liquor store..
Upon leaving the liquor store, I caught a glimpse of myself. It was only my reflection in the door. but....
I realized that I didn't even so much as glance in a mirror before I left the house...
Let me just tell you,,, I wasn't a pretty site!
You know how you feel after spending the day in the sun, heat and water? Well, that is how I looked,, but probably worse..
This is when I realized just how much my life has changed since having children..
Before kids,,, not even maybe,, like over my dead body would I EVER have left my house without checking the mirrors (full body and closeup) to make sure that I looked presentable.
I checked to make sure my hair was perfect,, that there was no smudged makeup, no underwear lines.. I double checked to make sure that what I was wearing matched...
I was probably a little vain, but it was me...
Tonight,, I am completely embarrassed to say that I left the house with unstraightened, humidity frizzed hair. Not only was my eye makeup smudged,, it was mostly gone.. My shirt and my skirt were both stained, and neither matched my flip flops..
I believe the modern term for what I left the house looking like tonight is "HOT MESS"!!!
Yep, that's me!
Thank GOD I didn't run into anyone that I knew..
What has happened to me? What is my world coming to?
I'm usually still very "on my game" when it comes to going out..
Tonight though,, I failed..
My HOT days may officially be over..
Why don't I care?? I should care!?
What possessed me to walk out of my house without glancing in a mirror??
Do you know how many people I've looked at and said (out loud) "do you think she looked in a mirror before she left the house?"
Tonight, without a doubt in my mind,,, people were asking the same thing about me..
Maybe I've just grown up? Maybe I'm not that girl that needs people's accepting looks any more...
Or.... Maybe I'm just a mommy who really NEEDED wine, and I'll never, ever let that happen again!!
Have a great day ladies!! Make sure you check back tomorrow for my first ever Guest Post.. I'm really excited about it, and I know you're going to love it!!!
Enjoy your evening,,, drink responsibly and PLEASE, PLEASE Check the mirror before leaving your house!
