I had two books to return thus the reason we had to go today. I was about half way through with the second book so I was eager to finish it last night so I wouldn't have to recheck it out. I sat on the couch with my nose in that book for a good portion of the evening. Sweet Husband just doesn't understand my obsession with books and kept making comments about how it would be nice to sit and visit with me. I tried to explain that it was the same as me sitting there watching TV with him, but after answering him with nods and mmhmms to questions that didn't require a yes or no answer he didn't believe me. But I finished the book and was able to take it back, proud that I wasn't rechecking anything back out.
So things I like have starting to change... like maybe my sense of style for one. I use to never leave the house without makeup. Wouldn't be caught dead in a t-shirt and tennis shoes. Hair was never pulled back in a ponytail unless it was accessorized with a cute braid or something. Perhaps kids have changed me or perhaps I'm just getting older, but I am definitely over all of my "nevers".
Today I wore my "mom sweater" as Sweet Husband likes to call it. I think it's totally cool, but I guess I have a weird sense of style. Also I hardly ever wear makeup anymore. Shoot I'm lucky if I get to shower before I go out during the day. Now I do dress differently when we're going out as a family because I do want my Sweet Husband to have a little arm candy with him, but it seems I have traded my high heels in for ballet flats. The neckline of my shirts have gotten a little higher, the fit of my pants a little looser. So I will proudly wear my "Mom sweater" now because I think it's fine to be a little frumpy every now and then. I guess I'm not trying to impress anyone anymore. Sure I like to feel pretty from time to time, but that's more so I can hear Sweet Husband tell me I'm beautiful. Which he does everyday because he's pretty fantastic. :)
Here's a picture of my "Mom sweater"
So tonight I coach my first basketball game. I'm super nervous. So wish me luck! Enjoy some pictures of my kidlets before I go.
