Hot mess to hotness in 30 min
You know when you have a big event, and the night before you think, “I got this”, and then in the morning you don’t?! Well that’s my life most of the time. I can plan my outfit, jewelry, makeup, shoes, hair, and all that but something usually happens where I’m more of a hot mess than hotness.
A few examples. My wedding night. I’m not going to get drunk and stay up late with all my amazing friends. Bahahaha ya right. Good morning father I’m sorry most of our wedding party smells like red bull vodka. But I still managed to look fabulous. I think being 25 and 125 lbs had something to do with it.
Also, knowing I was going to be on TV this week, I’m all like “I’m going to workout, do a cleanse, drink lots of water, do a face mask, body wraps, sauna, etc.” Then the night before, eat my weight in Mexican food and wash it down with some queso. Oh yeah. That was my choice last night. Work hard, then get bloated before getting camera ready.
PS I do NOT think cleanses are safe for moms. At least not this mom. I need coffee and chips ‘n salsa er’ryday. And if there is any type of baked good in this house, consider it gone down my gullet. I had cookies during my cleanse. Like, I eat Cheez-Its when I wrap.
Also I’m pretty positive kids know when you have something going on. They know when you have been out on date the night before and they get up at 6am on a Sunday and then they sleep in till 8am on Monday. Sunday nights go like this:
“I need water!” “I need to go peepee!” “I need a snack!” “I had a bad dream!” “Can I have the iPad or watch minions??”
“No! I will take all your hot wheels away.” Hello!!! We have a TV interview in the morning and mama needs her beauty sleep.
It’s just like the book “Go the F to sleep!”
After a night of musical beds we accidentally sleep in and Of course it’s raining and I think I have a pinched nerve in my back. I feel like the princess and the pea.
Ok for real. I get to my parents’ house dressed like this.
We get to the TV station, and let me tell you what! Being back on the other side is waaaaay better. I used to have to set up the interviews and coordinate with people. It was pretty hilarious to see it played out as the interviewee.
Thankfully the producer is a doll, and our photog is the bomb.com. Funny thing is, we are being interviewed about parenting. Bahahaha says the mommy blogger who says that I love Jesus but I cuss a little. And the mom who has accidentally locked her kid in the car, not once, but twice. Thank you Pop-a-Lock and Tulsa Fire Department.
Here’s a tip. Don’t let your kids play with your keys as a distraction to get them in their car seats. Anyway, sorry for the side bar.
It’s pretty funny. We tried to answer the questions, and I felt more like just Douche Mommy than my bad ass self. Can’t wait to see the finished product. KJRH NBC Channel 2 Friday night at 10pm or at KJRH website
It’s the real life ugly stuff we don’t post, but I’m certain we all have these moments all the time. Now instead of stressing out too bad, I think, “OK for real. Blog post!” I need a Mouseketool to get me thru the rest of the week, and it’s called sleep. It’s only Tuesday, and I’m already ready for a massage and our date night Friday night.
Why do I feel like I can do a zillion things? The calendar and to do lists never end, but this week is CRAY!!! The last days of school, TV interview, lunch, teacher appreciation gifts, MIL in town, out to dinner, SAM’s club, baths and thunder game, go to the doctor, deliver lunch to friends, no nap for baby, swim lessons, dinner, blog post, clean house, dentist, park, B-roll footage at our house. Going to work, haircuts, swim lessons. Friday. Finally date night!!! Saturday workout, birthday party, block party.
So as you can see, I’m a hot mess. But I try to do it all looking a hotness. Cheers to the super mamas out there. Love you all!
Just Happy Mommy
