Frump to Fabaganza: Week 3

Welcome to Week 3!

This week mostly consisted of various combinations of t-shirts and jeans.  I didn’t really venture out much except for a dental appointment and a jeans shopping excursion…  Which ended in tears.

Jeans shopping, man.  It’s a bummer!  They’re either too tight, too loose, fit but have a massive waist the size of a small planet, make your butt look flat (which is not flattering for those of us that have some bubble), or the pockets are too low.  They are almost harder to find than a good fitting bra.  I complained to Hubs that it’s “just so easy for guys!”  He sighed and gave me a big hug.  Maybe next week…

Anywho, fabness:

Frump to Fabaganza: Week 2

Soooo… this week was a little on the weak side for getting dressed and what not.  I was sick on Monday and Tuesday and basically stayed in my jammies… because that what you do when you feel like crud.  But I did pretty good for the rest of the week.  Even made the 9 am cut-off time, which I took as more of a suggestion than a rule last week.

Frump to Fabaganza: Week 1

Week 1 of Frump to Fabaganza was a little more effort than I originally thought.  Breaking out of bad habits (pj’s all day) is hard, and this was no exception.  My usual morning ritual is to make coffee before Hubs goes to work, then sit in front of the computer writing emails, making calls, occasionally getting up to make the bed and fold laundry… all while still in the jam-jams.  Days 1 and 2 were easy — I actually had places to be and things to do before noon.  The rest of the week, well, lets just say that this project was the only thing that kept me motivated.  I mean, really.  Who wants to think about hair and make up if you’re just hanging out by yourself all day?

I did find (and this is a lesson learned for the billionth time) that I was more productive, even if I was just hanging out at the house by myself.  I was more inclined to venture out into the world beyond and get things done.  Like grocery shopping.  Dog grooming.  Class registration.  Ya know, grown-up, “responsible” things.

I struggle sometimes with being a grown up…  My usual motto is “Responsi–SHINY!!!!!”

The struggle is real, folks!
