Real people. I am one of those that just cannot keep up with my perfect friends, or seemingly perfect blog friends. I know so many moms, and man they seem to have their you-know-what together. Me, not so much. I always have my hair pulled back in a pony, or a head rag, or even a cute hat. These days I am almost always in workout clothes, but I do workout LOTS! After spinning or something, I take a shower, and put on clean workout clothes, and that is how I stay all day! I do my hair now like 5 times a year. Although I do love a little make-up! I rarely put on heals, although when I do, I feel like awesome sauce! I don't have time to learn the things I'd like, I don't get my writing assignments in on time, I don't keep up on fb, and my house, although I clean alllll the time, is always a mess. I rarely ever scrap and paint, but I long to do so.
Since school is back, and I am not homeschooling anymore (big jump for joy) I have decided to dedicate any spare time I have to getting myself back into really great shape. I have always, before Paiger, made fitness and health a serious priority, and turning 35 this summer made me come to terms with how I want to enter the next stage of life. Sadly, to do this, I have put away most of my art supplies. They will come out, I just don't know when. I hope soon. And until then, I have a phat D7000 in my hands everywhere, although I don't know how to use it!
Today, the fam and I went to an outdoor charity concert that my friend big D was singing at. I was crazy happy with my new camera. Here is one from today.
and just for cuteness sakes... ya, that's my cute son-in-law to be!
First day with my new love, and no subjects.... self mirror portraits just because. This one was my fav, minus the nasty yellow lighting. Must edit this one soon.
So, thank you to all of you that don't sugar coat your lives. If you're a mom with 5 and you always look awesome and your house is clean, more power to you! ...but just don't come over unannounced.
And this week I took rad pics of my baby painting. Maybe a post for tomorrow?
