Don't you love those days when you just feel pretty? Your hair is cooperating and your clothes are well put together (and clean!)? That was me today.
I had a full day planned for the kids. We were heading to a local place that is basically a warehouse filled with inflatable jumping toys and then to another favorite spot of theirs to pick up a couple of gifts for family members that we'll be visiting soon.
I gave myself a glance after I was all ready and thought, "Man, I look pretty good today!" I was wearing a brand new sweater that I got (on sale!) at Ann Taylor and my hair was awesome.
To top it off, as he was leaving for work, Big Daddy kissed me goodbye and said, "You look pretty today!"
My large ego made it safely out the door and thanks to my swelling confidence, I didn't even get upset when we sat in traffic for an hour and a half.
All day, I was getting looks from people and I just knew what they were thinking.
"Wow! She looks great!"
"Has she lost weight?"
"I love that color sweater on her...it really brings out her eyes!"
After our full day, we returned home for dinner. I ran up to change into pajamas a few minutes ago and realized that what people were actually thinking as they stared at me today was:
"Um, that lady forgot to take the tag off her sweater. What a dork!"
Modern day Minnie Pearl right here, folks.
On the bright side, I bet at least half the Moms I chatted with at the jumping place thought, "OMG! Look at the bargain she got on that sweater!"
