Forget the Apple bottoms jeans and the boots with the fur. Last night I rocked the padded bike shorts and the shoes strapped to the pedals!
It was spin class round 2! The first class I took I didnt wear padded shorts. HUGE, HUGE mistake. I was rendered useless for over a week because of the butt soreness. So, I made a pricey purchase of padded shorts. And not the cheap ones padded with foam. These bad boys have a gel seat. My butt does not look cute in them and they kind of make me waddle but I love them! Check the out the padding...its like sitting on a pillow!

Here we go..Round 2! Once again, if you are offended by these, I am sorry. But this are my tips that I feel the need to share!
1. White eyeliner....not ok! We are not in Junior High anymore!
2. Glitter. If you are not working a pole...do NOT, I repeat, do NOT wear glitter!
3. Animal prints. I love them! I really do. However, you have to be very careful when trying to wear animal prints. The rules are as followed.

We have a crap-ton of it! I'm a California Girl, born and raised. This stuff is cold, and I hate having wet muddy pants! We did have some fun playing in it this weekend. My parents have a huge backyard that backs up to a elementary school. The kids had a blast! (Minus Emerson, being cold is not her thing) It is the most snow I have ever seen in person!! Enjoy a few pictures of our snow filled weekend!

Jaidyn my first grader came home this week with paperwork and artwork she did at school. Like always, I take it out of her awesome Jonas Brothers backpack and check it out. I was a little surprised by what I saw. She learned all about Kwanzaa. I asked her what she learned about it, heres our conversation,

Oh Tuesday, I hate you! Now on to my ramblings.
Saturday we went to the P&G Christmas party. It was fun, nice to get dressed up and open bar! We got gift baskets with laundry soap, toilet paper, swifter, cleaner....Gotta love P&G products! Funny story from that night, we were in a ballroom next to a wedding. While I was in the restroom the bride came in with red wine all over her dress. The maid of honor spilled her glass down the bride. (I would have elbow dropped her right there.) I felt so bad for the bride so I ran and got my trusty bottle of tide and we got the red wine out. Jason said we should have grabbed the marketing team and told them about it. Maybe they can give him a little bonus for it. Haha! Here is a picture from that night.
I have been thinking a lot lately about appropriate gym attire. I sold my elliptical and I am spending that money on workout clothes. I had one pair of yoga pants and I hate washing them after every workout. I have noticed a lot of women at the gym in full makeup and their hair done. I think thats overkill. Yes, I have makeup on when I go, if its in the evening. Its just the makeup I had on during the day. I wont retouch and I sweat so much the makeup is pretty much gone at the end of my workout. I also take off some of my eye makeup if i wore a lot that day. What is too much for the gym? At what point do you look like a gym rat who is on the prowl for one of those very nice muscular men there? By the way...if you have lipstick on, for the love of all that is holy, wipe it off! Lipstick in a gym is way too much! I will make fun of you for that one. Just a warning....now its fair game! Opinions please......

I didn't want to use my blog as a way to promote my business. So this will not happen often but I did get some new bows up for the holidays! I also just ordered Kstate, KU and MU ribbon for BBall! And I have to warn you..if I see a bow on someone's site that has been copied.....you might get called out! (I'm tired of ignoring it)

A quick recap of the past few days. I did the kids pictures for our Christmas Card. It involved a lot of screaming and crying and Emerson running away from us! I could NOT get a decent picture for our card so I went with what I got. It is by far my favorite card we have ever done!!!!
