I rarely pay attention to the ads on Facebook, but just recently one caught my eye. It was for a site called Gwynnie Bee and it is basically the Netflix of clothing. You fill up your virtual “closet” with items (sized 10-32) and they send them to you for you to wear and style to your heart’s content. When you are done with the item, you put it in the pre-paid bag they send you and return it. You can try one month for free, which is totally awesome because who doesn’t like free?! These pants were the first item that I received. I love them because they are a style that I’ve been wanting to try out, but would never buy. My husband was not a fan, but I’m glad I got to have fun with them for a limited time. What do you think of them? Casual glam or just too casual (aka gym pants)?

Because it’s summer time, we have had our windows and doors open for the majority of the time. Unfortunately this means that we have flies coming in and out at all times. And flies drive me CRAZY! Fortunately I have been blessed with mad-ninja-fly-swatting skills, so I am definitely winning this battle…in my mind anyway. I better watch what I say though because the other day I caught my oldest grabbing the flyswatter while saying “It’s time for some killing!” Yikes.

I Could Be A Gold Medalist…

I am not a very competitive person. In second grade I played soccer for the first (and only) time and spent most of the time making daisy chains and making friends with the girls on the other team. In high school, I realized I did much better at solo sports (Varsity Hurdles), but still would never excel enough to become an Olympian in track & field. I do think there are some “sports” that I could DEFINITELY become a gold medalist in, if they were ever to become an Olympic sport. Such as:

-Extreme dishwasher unloading

-Expert makeup application while riding as a passenger in a car

-Quick use of a gas station bathroom

-Creation of dorkiest dance moves/routine

-Reading an entire Dr. Seuss book on one breath (bahaha! I can’t do this, but I have tried and will keep trying)

Naked and Stressed Out

A week ago, I got fed up of wearing maternity clothes…well, I got fed up with looking at them in my closet, so I packed them all up and exchanged them for my boxes of regular clothes. Unfortunately I still have another fifteen or twenty pounds to lose to be back to “normal”. I’ve been working super hard doing the 21 Day Fix (more on that later), so that I can fit into my clothes when I go back to work in a week. I am not quite sure that this is going to happen though and I’m pretty sure naked doesn’t fall under the “professional dress code guidelines”. Blerg.

There is always that time period after giving birth when your hormones are out of whack and getting back to normal. The worst thing that happens during this time is that your hair starts falling out in droves. You should see how much hair is all over the floor of my home. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I’m pretty sure in the next couple of weeks I’m going to be bald. Anyone wanna go wig shopping with me? ;)

With all our trips to the pool and beach lately, it got me thinking…asking someone to put sunscreen on you is really a trust exercise. You can’t see what they are doing back there. For all you know, they could just be rubbing their hands on your back with no sunscreen. Or rubbing it in randomly, so you look all blotchy like a cow person. So I ask you…do you trust the person applying your sunscreen? ;)

Get Away From Me!

We have a sweet little Miniature Schnauzer named Ollie (It used to be Oliver, but we switched it to Olive when we found out “he” was actually a girl…but that’s a story for another day…). Now, she is a very good dog, but I am seriously thinking of getting a restraining order from her. She follows me around the house like she can’t get enough of me. She has a bottomless pit for attention, which we give her, but apparently it’s not enough. So if you’re near my house, please feel free to stop by and spend some time with my dog ’cause she’s driving me NUTS!
