.I Got Dressed!




This week I joined Sarah Mae and several other women in a "Get Dressed" challenge. We purposed to shower, get dressed, AND do our hair and makeup by 8:00 AM. The biggest challenge for me was doing my hair and makeup. I have gotten into a bad routine where I throw on sweats or a t-shirt and jeans, and put a big fat hair wrap in my hair most days. I only do my hair or put make-up on if I am going out or if someone is coming over. I wasn't always like that. I used to be married to my make-up and hair tools, but in the last few years I have slipped. I actually felt really good doing this challenge this week. And my husband even told me on Wednesday morning that I looked "beautiful". SO I count this a major success, and I hope to keep it up. After looking at Sarah Mae's photos, though, I think I need to invest in a few skirts for this summer - so pretty!

Here is how I did this week:
Photobucket
The ONLY day I flat ironed my hair! That is too much work for a week day! Ha!

I cheated a bit this day with the hair wrap! {wink} BUT this was the day Jim told me I was beautiful!

I just noticed that the clock is actually wrong in this photo!! I promise it was before 8:00!!

Thank you to my sweet husband for taking these photos for me every morning! {grin}

What a great idea!
Before a got pregnant and started working from home (last December) I was showered, dressed, hair done and makeup on before I woke my son up at 6:30. Now I sit in my pj's most of the morning, it really is a terrible habit I have gotten into. I might have to try this next week!

Oh I love all of the pics. You are so beautiful! I am almost never completely ready before 8. Many mornings I'm still in my jammies at 8! I need to do better.

Tiffany, you are SO CUTE! I am almost always up, showered and dressed well before 8 since I have to get the kids to school, and i actually have to go out in public to take Kyle to his school, so that is pretty good motivation for me. This week however has been an exception... I've gotten dressed everyday, but since it was spring break, I let myself sleep in a long with the kids so it wasn't before 8! It was a nice break! But next week, back to my real-life! ha ha!

I did this, too! Now, of course I couldn't understand the "how to" of linking up... but, I DID IT! Minus today as I sit here in my pj's still!

Hi! I found you through Sarah Mae's challenge. You look adorable and I LOVE the hair wrap! I agree. Some fresh Spring looking skirts do sound very appealing right now :)

Rhonda said...

Cute challenge for the stay at home mommy.

I remember before I went back to work how easy it was to stay in sweats all day.

CUTE pictures!

Theresa said...

Holy cow, woman! Great job! I am most impressed... tell me though... on days you workout, does that mean you have to shower and do hair and makeup TWICE?! ;)

Rachel said...

Great job!! You do look beautiful!! =)

thegypsymama said...

Girl, you ARE beautiful! And I second what Sarah Mae said - LOVE that headband - wish I had cute curly hair to pull something like that off! Oh, and the clock - that is really beautiful too ;)

Jessica said...

I love that you took your pictures with a clock! Great job!

kathy said...

Great job!!!!! I am almost always dressed before 7, but the makeup only on Sundays and AVON delivery days. Maybe I'll try a few other days. Definitely skirts this summer. They always make me feel more feminine. I need that because I am definitely a tom-boy. ~AK~

Joy @ SAH Missionary said...

I hope you had fun, I know I did! It's so fun to see everyone doing it together!
Blessings,
Joy

You are too cute, time and everything! I have so much to learn from you ladies!

Heather said...

This is so wonderful that you did this! I really need to do this. :-)
I'm am in a bad rut of wearing sweats.
Your outfits are so cute and I like your style! :-)

I could never do the challenge....I don't even drink my coffee until 830AM and God knows I cannot function until the second cup!

Melissa said...

PERSONALLY: I LOVE your hair naturally curly. I'm so use to straightening my hair, but lately I'm trying to bring out my natural waves. I love yours and thought I would tell you since you said you were only able to do it on Monday :D
