This Fashion Friday is brought to you right from my closet...literally. Why haven't I thought of this before? Get dressed, snap some pics, and leave. Oh, maybe it was the fact that I couldn't fit my pinkie in my closet before. Just ignore the mess in the background. Soon it will be all pretty and organized, and I just might keep taking pics here! I just have to unpack the rest of the boxes...
This is what I wore for the Mom's Club Christmas Party this week. I had to get all fancied up because I'm on the party planning committee. Sounds important, huh? Not really. It just means that I cooked and made crafty little snow globes until my fingers fell off.
Anyway, I was getting ready and I slipped my shoes on forgetting to take off my snuggly knee high Christmas socks. I looked in the mirror and loved what I saw. I asked the hubs if they could fly. (He usually doesn't like my outfits, so I was prepared for the worst) He said I kindof looked like the legs from the Muppets, but it was festive and he liked it. SERIOUS?! Awwww yeah!
I headed out to the party and quickly realized I was overdressed, and that everyone was glancing down at my feet. One mom said "you look so fashionable!" I think that is code for "you are dressed really funky". There were several moms there that I hadn't met before. One asked me if I was just there to help with crafts. When I told her "no, I'm a mom", she asked if I was a teenager. Mmm, thanks? It's so obvious I don't fit in with the "normal moms" in my mom's club.
Whatevs, I didn't even care. I loved my sparkly, festive, muppetish outfit and I love being a mom.
Moral of the story? Dress to make yourself happy, be comfortable in your skin, and just be you.

On another note, Cooper did get to sit on Santa's lap and get a present at the party. He immediately started screaming when I sat him down, and continued while I took a picture. I think that will be the last of the Santa visits for this year. Poor thing.
