Here's my touch of spring on this cold February morning. I found this cute little burlap sack over at Vintage Junky.. How great is this?
Today's agenda includes a trip to the gym... where I will pretend to be a contestant on the Biggest Loser, and work out until my knees give out, my vision goes blurry, or I have a Dick Cheney style heart attack. I've got a new motivation and it's called ~ BAD PHOTOS.
Have you ever seen a picture of yourself and thought.... "nooooo. I don't look like that. I couldn't possibly look like that!!". Well, I just saw one of myself that made me a bit~ shall we say~ crazy?! Ok, it was actually more like 10 photos.... all shot at the same bad angle, all highlighting the flaws that I am most uncomfortable with.....all captured and put into an album and exposed on facebook.
Now, I don't think that I am an especially vain person. Once I had my daughter, I really had a priority shift. There are many days when I find myself covered in applesauce, my hair has shifted over to a bad side ponytail, there's cat hair on the back of my sweater.... I can deal all that. But for some reason, seeing a double chin, tired eyes and bad roots captured on film and preserved forever makes me want to take action.
So, you'll know where to find me today.
But while I'm there, you still have a chance to enter my giveaway! It looks like the burlap clutch is the fan favorite (mine too). So, tell your friends... and enter, enter, enter! Drawing will take place on FRIDAY at 6pm!
