Hellooooooo Gussy! This is my first first link up and I am so excited - yippppeeee!
When you're a mom (I have four little lovelies 9 - 20 months) pamper is a big word. Life & budget usually do not afford the luxury of pampering. But most times "time" is the culprit stealing the indulgence. So maybe in my world pampering is more of a goal - - something I would write (probably at the bottom) of a very long to do list. Which in all reality turns into a once a year goal. Ohhhhhhh, but does it sound so nice?
My mommy needs to be pampered - is anyone listening?
Usually the word pamper means a brand name of diapers that I was able to get free with CVS points and double coupons. But today, pamper was the prompt and boy did I run with it! Well, do not know if I will be running with these bad boys but I might kick some butt with them!
Yes, aren't they beautiful? And guess what? They are mine! Yup, M - I - N - E!
You see, I have been searching all over for the perfect dress/sandal combo for the many festivities surrounding my SIL's wedding (hi Lisa!). Couldn't find a thing!
Then I started brainstorming for this super duper linky party. How about cupcakes? I could write about great cupcakes. Specificlly red velvet. But no, does not help the last ten lbs of baby weight I need to loose. Maybe, I could get a pedicure? Ummmm, nope. Does not fit in with the running shoes. Nailpolish chips on the first day -- a total waste of money. Maybe a scented candle. Again, nope one of the kids would set something on fire with it. Bubble bath? No, someone probably peed in the tub last night (gross I know). So how do I pamper myself? Then it came to me! For this month, I would pamper myself with boots! Solves the "what to wear to wedding events" problem and gives me a yee haw everything I wear them!
How pampering is a pair of boots? At 5'4" I can put these babies on and feel 6'0". If I need to kick some butt, I have pointy toes. I can play cowboys with the kids and be the "really cool" mom. I can put on my boots, sit on the porch, drink a tall glass of sweet tea and pretend that I am looking over the prairies of Texas.
So worth saving the money for and hey, I made my "goal" on the 6th of the month! Yippee for being pampered! Not saying that a VENTI chai isn't too far behind on the list ;)
