I am coming right out and admitting that this post FREAKS me out. Big time. Big enough that I've been debating whether or not to do it all week.
For those of you who are unfamiliar to What I Wore Wednesday, let me fill you in...
In an effort to encourage ladies to get out of those all too comfy yoga pants, Uggs, and hoodies, brave women are linking up what they wore during the week on The Pleated Poppy. It is fun. It is harmless. It has forced me to get out of my comfort zone and more specifically, out of wearing my Rainbows (flip-flops), jeans, and plain shirt combo everyday.
I've been contemplating how I can do this to make it practical and fun. I am focusing on making mama hot on a budget. Pre-kids, I shopped high end stores without a thought. Now that I am staying home with the kiddos I have to scale back. I am sure many of you can relate. I'm also keeping it real. I have two kids in preschool, as well as a 2nd grader. Life is messy around here and we don't have a huge need to dress up. I'm keeping it kid-friendly cuz that's my life.
Oh, one more thing. Ignore my weird, dorky expressions. I'm not sure if I should smile at myself in the mirror (cheesy) or just stare (kinda scary). Your thoughts on this one?
And for those of you who knew me back in high school days, yes I've gained 5 pounds (ugh!) but, I guess being on prednisone for my lupus and having 3 kids will do that! Don't we all want our high school bodies back? Well, I do at least!
Oh, yeah, one more thing. Ignore my inability to photograph myself. I am crooked in a few shots and left my laundry basket in full view. Nice one, Katie!
So here we go. Just an average mom moving beyond yoga pants on a budget....

Stay in them, sink into your comfy couch, put your feet up, and drink a second cup of coffee for me.
