A few weeks ago I noticed a pattern that I've started. Something I'm not proud of. I noticed that I have been doing my hair and make up less and less to the point where its more common for me to not get ready than it is for me to get ready! I've become that wife!
A few days ago Dave asked me if I wanted to meet up for lunch the next day. I told him yes but only if I got ready that day. His response? "Right, like that's going to happen!"
Ouch. Talk about a knife to the heart!
It was like a slap to my makeup free face! It's pretty sad when I do get all dolled up, Dave asks me what the occasion is. Apparently he's noticed how rare it is for me to get ready. Oops. Wife fail! So I've decided to change that! Dave and I have been married for almost six years and I think it's safe to say that we've become too comfortable around each other, which I guess when you're married that's a good thing? The first couple years of our marriage I got ready almost every day, whether I had places to go or not. I just wanted to impress my husband. Boy have things changed. Don't get me wrong, I still want to impress Dave but I've just put getting ready lower and lower on my priority list! Another wife fail! I want Dave to be proud of his wife. I want him to get butterflies when he see's me. I don't want to be that lazy housewife that I've become! Two kids is hard!!
So I'm determined and committed to changing my habits and do my hair and makeup every day. Just to simply look my best for my adorable husband. After all he does so much for me, is it really that hard for me to just look my best for him? And when you have a face like mine (pale skin, blonde eyebrows/eyelashes, absolutely no color to my face whatsoever) wearing no makeup is very noticeable! I kind of look like a sick person when I don't wear makeup..
My normal attire has been leggings, an over-sized, spit up stained T-shirt, and Uggs. So I've also decided to actually get dressed every day too. I'm in the process of updating my wardrobe because I feel like I dress like a teenager. I am two weeks away from turning 27. T W E N T Y S E V E N!! So I'm making my wardrobe more mature-ish without looking like I'm 40. It's been hard finding the right clothes. But I've noticed that Boutiques sell way better clothes than stores at the mall.
So here's to 2014 being a more prettier year for me!
