I am thirty-one and I feel like it. Lately I have been noticing wrinkles and gray hairs. So, a couple of weeks ago I got a trendy haircut (of course, it was more trendy when she styled it) and last week, at a business kickoff meeting for Becca and Brock, I won a gift of my choice, which was an assortment of makeup.

So, this morning, I decided it was time to put it all to use. I did my hair and makeup! I took this picture, but you can't really tell that I am all decked out. Oh well. The whole process was pretty funny. Throughout the time of "beautification", I had to
  • hold one foot on the toilet seat so the baby couldn't open it and play in the water
  • pull toilet paper repeatedly off of my bare foot because, since the baby couldn't play in the poo water, he went for the next best thing, the toilet paper
  • unwrap the straight iron cord from around baby's neck ( I was right there...I still don't know how he did that!)
  • take the tube of toothpaste and hide it
  • repeatedly tell Sam not to lock his brother out of any rooms in the house
I guess my point is, "Was it worth it?" The only person I want to get "dolled up" for is George, and he was gone for that next eight hours. By the time he got home, I am sure I looked the same as I always do...a bit frazzled! I just hope the homeschool moms at the Y were impressed by the fact that I am not ALWAYS frumpy:)

Anna, you look lovely! I agree, it's hard to get "dolled up" I don't. It makes it more special when I do. :)

You guys are doing lots of fun stuff, with such adorable pictures for us to see. I especially love the pumpkins. Ha!

Good for you! I was reading through your entry and was like, "Wow! Go Anna! How does she do it with 4 kids?" When I read your last paragraph, you totally described why I never look decent anymore, and I only have 1 kid doing those things. lol But, anyways, you look so pretty in the pic, even if it only lasted a short time. I personally think you look pretty before too! But our husbands and children love us without make-up and our hair done, so does it really matter?

Too Funny. but I like it. You can see that you had done something to brighten up your face a bit. But unless you get professional pictures done I wouldn't be able to tell you what you did anyway. But it still looks good.
