The Dress

OK, this is for you...and you.

It's just a little black dress...but it's classy, tasteful, fits like a glove...and I think it's kinda hot too.

I know the pic sucks, but you know I have an ongoing battle with my camera and inside shots:/

That said...I'm really doing some soul searching here. Little Man and I went downtown to buy the dress. He waited patiently on "the man couch" while I tried it on. The saleswoman brought me some HOT strappy heels to go with it. I liked the way I felt all dressed up. There, I said it.

Does that make sense? I haven't shopped in like...forever (I'm a freak of nature that way...I never shop) I'm still not making sense...I love my Lululemon track pants. They've basically become my uniform. I chase toddlers all over the city ALL day. God bless you if you can do that in strappy heels...I can not.

I've spent the last five years raising kiddos...full time. I wanted to do it...it's all I wanted. I'm happy I made the choices I made...but now...I'd kinda like to get a little piece of me back. I miss that person who used to get dressed up and go downtown to a job every day. I'm really not sure what to do with these feelings...I just know they're there.

  10. You look gorgeous and totally hot - that is a killer dress and your legs! Awesome! And I think the feelings you're having are totally normal, too.

  11. Have your feelings. Talk about them. And get dressed up and go out more without the kiddies and play grown-ups ... and then have fun with the children some more.
    Sad fact of life .. whether you wish it or not, whatever you do to delay it, the kids will be grown and off on their own and you will have no choice but to be a grown up again, in grown up clothes if you so wish.
    You look fantastic in the LBD .. even with a camera in front of your pretty face... Go out more at night.. wear that dress ! besos..

  15. I understand how you feel... COMPLETELY, but here's the thing... Hawt damn, can you rock still a dress and heels! But the last five years of your life? That happens once and you rocked that too.

    You, my friend, are simply awesome and if I didn't love you so much, I would hate you right now :-P
