Wednesday This And That

Today we have a nice little day planned including a library storytime date with some friends. This afternoon we are going to a little church playground we like as well, assuming we can get our act together after naptime. :)

Oh, how the days have changed from when I was hopping from meeting to conference call to meeting. I saw a photo around 5am this morning during a nursing/blog reading session of a pretty mom picking up her daughter from preschool wearing some killer high heels. Shiny nude patent heels. She looked amazing! It took me back to getting dressed up for work and feeling like a million bucks.

So ... extra motivation to lose this last bit of baby weight so I can escape the yoga pants. Even though my "new job" as a stay at home mom does not require stilettos, I can seriously stand to up my wardrobe game. Even if I'm just wearing patterned shorts and a blouse, I can ditch the Rainbows and put on some gold sandals and hoop earrings. Easy, polished, and better than my current wardrobe situation.

Okay - next!

Here is a great deal on Amazon today for Prime members that my friend Sarah alerted me to.

So, a fantastic way to get a fun little beauty box in the mail and essentially for free if you want to purchase one of the items. The L'Oreal mascara is likely what I'll end up buying from the box. It's not my standard mascara, but I do know it has a cult following, so I want to give it a shot.

Lastly, a great reminder for this Wednesday. Make it a fabulous one!
