Okay...so I stayed up and painted my toenails... cause my toes looked like they had been run over by Big Foot and backed up and re-run over! (I hadn't painted them since before my beach trip in May AND I'm a runner....nuff said!)
Then, this morning....I did my makeup totally neutral. Enough so that I look pretty but not so much that I would look like "Mimi" from the Drew Carrey Show! I don't want to look like I was gang banged by a Crayola truck... (not that I do normally....but I just didn't want to do too much!) Naturale is always best for 1st dates and interviews!
I curled the ends of my hair...and then picked up my 11 month old who then, in turn, grabs my hair on both sides and while standing on the bed, she starts swinging on my hair... and I start freaking... "No no NOOOO... STOP!"
Oh lord... so the hair might not look like I want...but maybe the "Looks-like-I-fell out-of-bed, I-am-Tarzan, you-are-Jane, my-11-month-old-thinks-I'm-a-race-horse-look" will give me character??
I think I have an outfit picked out for the date and just have to pick up my sitter after work and head home to freshen up and change! At least now I FEEL pretty!!
WHEW.... I'm exhausted!

This is the important thing.
Do it for you, Shelly, not for anyone else.
Ama, too true. I wear nice matching undies/bra all the time these days. Not raunchy, but it makes me feel pretty.
Its not for anyone else's benefit but my own (usually.....). It has been really nice getting back into self-care. I am shocked at how little time I spent pampering myself for so many years. I didn't stop liking myself because I stopped the self-care, I stopped the self-care because I stopped liking myself.
The important thing is to go and be yourself and enjoy the date.
And remember....it's just a date. Nothing more. Relax and enjoy.
And of course we will all need to hear about it tomorrow.....
I will give you a 1 mile head start in a half marathon. If I catch you by the end, you have to doll up for me!
Wait a minute - I am way too old for you!
One of these days, I will be coming to Manassas on a sales project. We will have to meet for dinner along with Tred.
No Chic-fil-a though!
FTR, If I were King of the World -
I'd make it a crime for makeup to even think about your strikingly beautiful face.
That's it. I'm putting out a Restraining Order from your face - to any kind of covering!
Have a blast!
