"Quitcher Bitchin"

Well, I will be the very first to admit that my last blog post is possibly the WHINIEST whine that I have ever whined.

And it was public, dear god.

But you know, the mortification of realizing that was good for me. I just decided to stop it. I pincurled my hair the same night. It was such a perfect set, I've kept it through today (but tonight it HAS to be washed.) Today's style was prettier and smoother at 10am than it is at 10:30 at night. But it was never as smooth as a Kristin hairstyle. I don't even try. That way lies madness.

The next day, I went and had my eyebrows threaded. I'd never done it before. But Sarah of Stutterin' Mama swears by it, and her eyebrows are perfect. And now, mine are, too!

The day after that, we took two whole hours to go ride our bikes on the relatively new bike path near our home.

Yesterday, I worked really hard. And then, I stopped working hard at 5:30, and went to have my nails done.

Today, I put it all together. I put on a favorite dress, my bakelite anchor necklace, and those Chelsea Crew shoes from Mod Cloth that I love so much. Jesse and I volunteered for a couple hours visiting with some WWII and Korea vets. (I LOVE WWII vets and their wives. Love and adore them.)

We were dorks and forgot the camera. And now, it is Saturday Friday night and since Jesse is out, I had to take my own pics. So, there you go. Instagram. (Hey! I thought it was Saturday! I just gained a whole day!)

I think maybe I will be able to pick back up on my challenge, I just need some time, confidence, and some babysteps to get there.

After all, it's a lot more fun to take daily photos of yourself when your eyebrows aren't furry and your toes are painted. Although, I haven't taken care of my toes yet. This week. For sure. Because I'm feeling on top of it, now.
