Something I Have Never Tried - Being Pretty!

2:19 PM

 I know it sounds odd to say that I have never tried being pretty in my life. Growing up, I was the awkward girl with frizzy hair and thick plastic rimmed glasses. I never felt beautiful and became a tomboy at an early age. I avoid pink, never really learned how to apply makeup and have become very good friends with my ponytail.

Entering motherhood at an early age, it became clear that I would be lucky to even get a shower on a daily basis, let alone be able to make myself over each morning. Now, it is a blessing to take five minutes for myself in the morning before the fighting breaks out among the boys.

For just one day, I would love to try being pretty. I have never had a professional picture taken of myself, not even at my wedding. To really get dolled up for the camera and have a picture where I can remember that for just one day, I was that pretty girl. You know the type. That woman who sweeps past you in the grocery store when you are covered in snot and spit-up and she is perfectly chic and breathtaking from head to toe. To have actual photo proof that at least for that brief fleeting moment, I was capable of being truly pretty and put together would mean the world to me!

I am confident that with the help of some awesome products like the new Pantene Medium-Thick formula from the Medium-Thick frizzy to smooth collection, I could be a knockout, if only for a moment! I can't imagine how much of a confidence booster this would be.

  2. It isn't that I think I am the ugliest thing ever. I have just never had the opportunity to feel really pretty and chic. It is hard to explain lol.

    You know I love you though and I thank-you for your kind words. :)

  3. I agree with Rhea, you're totally beautiful. I was much like you growing up as well. A HUGE tomboy. I think whoever gave me 2 girls, with one of them being a girly girl. She LOVES to wear dressed. THAT didn't happen from me. (maybe Adam was a cross dresser growing up?) now, I usually do my hair and makeup if I'm going somewhere fancy. LOL!

  4. I know what you mean about just wanting to be pretty for a day. To just get your hair out of that pony tail, get a nice shower, and do some makeup. To be put together, and not look like a mom. I feel the same way a lot of days.

  5. It seems like with kiddos we forget who we are as women. Good luck in the contest.

  6. I agree with the others! I think you are beautiful!

  7. I think you are a beautiful woman inside and out. Good luck with the contest!
