Clearly Anna has no problems getting dressed to shoes!
Well at least a limited amount of sweat pants! I thought it would be fun to give the getting dressed challenge(found over on Sarah Mae's blog) a try. This morning I even got dressed "to shoes." I have heard wearing shoes around the house will increase your productivity, and I wanted to see how well it worked.
So why am I challenging myself to stop wearing sweats day in and day out and putting on a nice top and some jeans instead? There are many reasons, but the first one is because when I get dressed in regular clothes I get so much more accomplished around the house. I also feel better, and feel more awake. Another reason is that I want to be a good example, especially to my girls. I want them to see that Mommy takes her job seriously and that she takes care of herself. And lastly, although maybe this should have been my first reason, is that I want to look good for my husband. I always crack up that when we were dating I'd have never let Erik see me with greasy hair, no make up, and the same shirt I wore the day before. And even though having young children does make it easy to fall into this trap, I still don't want it to become an excuse for looking frumpy.
How about you? Do you try to get dressed every day?
