I got dressed!

I really love this post for Sarah Mae about the "Frumps to Pumps" Challenge. She really does a wonderful job capturing why she and most of us have joined in.

I have to admit I did it yesterday. I got up I didn't get dressed right way because I was crazy and was making a skirt to wear (yes I know I am nuts). But once the skirt was done I donned it with an adorable top and lovely earrings. My biggest challenge is my new loooooonger hair that I normally fashion into a ponytail but yesterday I took the time to blow it dry and I actually wore it most down. I felt fabulous and not just at that moment but all day. Thursdays are insane at my house but I felt on top of things by being dressed. And it was nice that when I needed to leave I didn't have to rush looking for something nice to wear the my class I teach or the movie I saw with the Girls last night. I did it this morning. I got up and got dressed first thing. And today has been amazingly productive. I think the bonus was my hubby who said he thought I looked great and that he really appreciated my trying to be a little more pulled together when he came home.

I started this morning taking pictures to document each day and normally will only join in on Monday's for the updates but I had to share.

  1. Good job! You know, it's so true that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Just don't beat yourself up if you don't stick to every detail of your plan everyday. Just commit to trying harder the next day.

    I imagine if I weren't committed to going to the gym four days a week, that I might be inclined to stay in my pj's too long, but having that motivation makes it easier to get up and get dressed - although I don't put on a lick of make-up because it would be a waste of good product.

    Additionally, I know I have to drive Amelia to school everyday so getting dressed is necessary for that as well. I see a good many moms who pull up to the door at school looking as though they've just rolled out of bed; but, I assure you, Amelia would walk the almost 10 miles to school before she'd let me take her while wearing my night clothes.

    I always make it a point to get up about an hour before the girls so I can have eaten, drank my coffee and gotten dressed before they open their eyes. On those rare days when I hit snooze too many times, I feel like our whole routine has gone to hell in a handbasket so I do my best to make this happen every morning.

    Now, the weekends are a different story entirely. It's not out of the ordinary to find one, or all of us, still in our pj's at noon on the weekends. We're VERY laid back on Saturdays and Sundays.
