Throwback Thursday ~ A Housewife’s Wardrobe

As I was hanging up my clothes today I started to think to myself that my wardrobe is just not as cute as it used to be.  Yes I have managed to hang onto some of the cute stuff but rarely do I find myself wearing it.  My closet has become full of what I would call a housewife’s wardrobe.

The majority of my laundry consists of sweats (Old Navy sweats are my favorite), t-shirts that are dated back to the pregnancy with my first child…not to mention they look even older after being washed and warn what seems like a gazillion times, and sweatshirts…the ones that I throw upon myself to rush to the grocery store.  Oh and lets not forget my lovely go to yoga pants…comfy doesn’t get any comfier then a washed and warn pair of yoga pants.  Unfortunately they have never seen the light of day of a yoga class.

I have also found a love for cameos.  Nothing fancy, Kirkland brand from Costco.  But I wear them under EVERYTHING.  Sometimes I feel like it’s just one step closer to wearing “spanx”.  Although I just don’t see how something squeezing every ounce of cellulite could be anywhere near comfort. And where does all the fat go?  And what happens when you take it off?  Isn’t that kind of like false advertisement?  Like the wonder bra and wonder jeans, where one wonders what happened when they are removed.  Of course that only applies to people who are dating, I suppose.  As “married with children” women we have had everything on display already.

Now mind you I have come a long way in motherhood with my wardrobe.  Long gone are the days that I would get dolled up to leave the house and inevitably one of the babies would spit up and I didn’t have time to change.  Nothing like sitting somewhere smelling like soured breast milk.

 

I complain to my husband about my wardrobe and of course he tells me to go out and buy some new clothes.  But for what? I don’t go anywhere that requires anything more then my current “mommy wear”.  And for our occasional date nights I have a few pairs of jeans and “nice” tshirts for those outings.  I mean seriously am I going to clean the house and attend to the children in fancy clothes?  I am sure there are mothers that do so but as for me I have never been much of a fashionista so why start now?  I would rather spend my money on something more rational…like wine.  **smiles**

We live in a small town…you know the kind where some people can’t even get out of their pajama bottoms to go to the grocery store.  I am quite certain our local Wal-Mart is on a YouTube video somewhere.

I have some really cute pajama pants but I am not about to wear them out in public…unless of course I don’t need to get out of the car…then it’s acceptable.  I say this because once my kids start school I know that I am going to be one of those mom’s dropping my kids off with my pajamas and slippers on.  I am NOT a morning person what so ever and the fact that I will have 3 of them to get ready at the crack of dawn, that just doesn’t leave time for me to worry about what I look like.

Even at 10am this is what I still look like.

UPDATE:  I go to the gym after dropping off the kids these days so I am usually dressed the part…but on Fridays my littlest one doesn’t go to preschool so therefore the other two are dropped off with my pajamas on.  Don’t judge.  I don’t have to get out of the car.

I have also started hating to wear bras…mind you I will not go out in public without one on but as soon as I get home it’s the first thing to come off.  My “girls” don’t like to be all bunched up in a wad.  I mean could you imagine if men had penis bras?  Or had to go everywhere wearing a jock strap?  We would never hear the end of how uncomfortable that was.  Well I feel the same way about my boulder holder.  Therefore when I am home, it is off.  **feels sorry for the random people who come to the door**

Truth is I am a stay at home mom/housewife and I enjoy dressing the part.  Let’s face it…who wouldn’t like to be able to go into work everyday with messy hair and comfy clothes?  My kids don’t care what I look like.  All they care about is that mommy is here to take care of their every need.  The only thing they notice is when I have morning breath and they tell me to brush my teeth.  My son tells me I am beautiful even when I look like a train wreck.  And lucky for me my husband likes the “natural” me.  Meaning a little eyeliner and mascara and although I have long hair it is usually up…and I am ok with it.  I am more comfortable with me now than I was in my younger years.  So to all you moms out there who wonder if your wardrobe has gotten a bit on the frumpy side just remember that as long as your kids are happy who cares if your shirt has a hole in it?

UPDATE:  I wrote this piece when I first started my blog.  I have since purchased some new clothes and actually because this year I made a decision that I was going to promise to myself to get in shape I will be purchasing some more clothes.  Something about losing weight and feeling healthy on the inside makes you want to look better on the outside.  But I still love my pajama days…which is usually only Sundays these days.

Throwback Thursday ~ 25 Things That Piss Me Off

I wrote this post about a year ago and realize that all these things still annoy me and I could probably add to the list but I will just make a Part 3 instead.  But I have chosen this post for my Throwback Thursday pick!

 

Things That Piss Me Off Mad Anger Annoying

Another 25 things that really put me in a tizzy…you can see the first 25 here.

People at bars these days…did I act that stupid when I was young?

People In Bars Things That Piss Me Off

When my little monsters decide that they want to nap at 5 in the evening and then stay up half the night.

Anything relating to cleaning.  I usually just turn on an episode of “Hoarders” and then realize that my house looks just fine.

Heartburn.

The Raiders football team along with The Chiefs and The Chargers.

My husband’s smoking.  Although he is in the process of quitting.

(UPDATE:  He quit for a minute and has finally realized that he can’t casually smoke while drinking, he started Chantix again yesterday…let’s keep our fingers crossed that it sticks this time)

The 1st of the month at Wal-Mart.  Have you ever been to Wal-Mart on the 1st of the month?  I would highly suggest NOT doing it.

When I order food and they get it wrong.  I never complain about it either cause I am afraid they will take it back and spit in it….I do however leave a reflection of it in my tip.  I have also been known to leave notes on the backs of my receipts to let them know why their tip wasn’t more.  And if you are ever mad about an order from a fast food establishment…call the corporate office and complain!  They will send you coupons for FREE stuff!

When a TV show that I love either ends or gets canceled for no reason!  This is especially true when I watch a first season of something and LOVE it and then it never gets a second season.  And I am just left dangling about what happened.  So annoying!

Pissed Off My Show Was Cancelled

When the temperature gets over 100 degrees.  Anything over 100 is just plain hot, hot, hot!

When I am out of wine vodka whiskey beer booze.  This is a shitty bad situation for all of those around me as well.

Recently my neighbors have made me mad asking that my husband and I keep it down in our own backyard.  And it was just the two of us!

Getting old.  My mind says I am 20 something but my body has a tendency to tell me otherwise.

When I spend precious time watching a horrible movie.  I feel like it is just such a waste of my time.

Bored Pissed Off

When I forget to take said movie back to Redox and end up paying way too much for it.  That really irritates me!

Toys!  Everywhere there are toys!  Because some days I am just too fucking preoccupied busy to constantly tell the kids to pick up their toys.

Stepping On A Lego Toys

Trying to think about “What’s for dinner” every single day!

Sticky floors.  Especially summertime when Watermelon is in season and popsicles.

When someone asks me the same question that I already answered a few times before.  My husband is notorious for this.

Liars.  I can’t stand people who lie.  Especially when the truth was so much easier to tell rather then a snowball of lies.

Solicitors.  I even have a “No Soliciting” sign on my front door and those beepity beep beep beepers still ring my doorbell.  Which then rally’s up the kids and my nerves!

PMS.  Probably the cause of this entire rant!

Whirlpool Corporation.  You can read all about that story here.  I am actually surprised it took me this long to mention them.

(UPDATE:  After all the fuss I made and being blocked from their Twitter, they did finally replace the part at their own cost…it now sits in my garage as a back-up washer.)

Every time that something in my house breaks.  I mean what happened to shit lasting?  Nothing is made right anymore.  Yes I realize I have a large family but seriously so were most of the families I knew growing up and they had shit that lasted for d-e-c-a-d-e-s!

When my kids keep getting up after I have put them to bed.  I have a great story about that here.  Make sure you watch the video narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.  It’s hilarious but make sure your kids aren’t in “ear” distance.  The F-bomb is said….A LOT!

Yours Truly,

Throwback Thursday ~ How You Know You Have Reached Forty Something

This was originally posted in May of 2015 but it’s my pick for this weeks Throwback Thursday!

Oh the dreadful “over the hill”.  Somedays I feel like I am already buried in the hill but here is a list of just a few things that remind me I have reached the age of 40 something.

  • When riding in the car and you turn the station to “Hair Nation” ((don’t judge me)) and your kids look at you like you have just turned on a foreign language.  Along with your husband who is five years younger can’t stop making fun of you for listening to such a station.
  • When you wake up but it takes you 30 minutes for the “overnight kinks” to get the hell out of your body.
  • When the first cup of coffee is only for the flavor….it takes 3 or 4 more to actually wake you up.

 

over the hill 40 something aging getting older

  • Your nipples are just about headed south for the winter…well actually for the rest of your life unless you get a boob job.
  • Your menstrual cycle is no longer referred to as a period,  it’s now more like a huge freudian ink blot.
  • You can no longer be friends with hard liquor.  The hangovers that used to take a day to recover from now take no less then a week.
  • You walk into rooms forgetting what the fuck you came in there for…oh wait that’s been something I’ve done most of my life…I blamed pot before…now I just blame it on being over 40.
  • A “wild” night consists of being out until midnight.
  • The “little black dress” now goes past the knees and half way to the ankles.

 

over the hill 40 something aging getting older

  • Your hair brush looks like a small furry animal.
  • It’s time for the dreadful squashing of the boobs in which is referred to as a mammogram…is someone sending my boobs a note?
  • You’ve replaced movies like “91/2 Weeks” with watching “The Food Network”.
  • It’s time to start worrying about retirement money that doesn’t exist.
  • You value your sleep.  Sleep has suddenly become the most prized possession.
  • In high school you could eat a salad and work out to lose 10 pounds…now you would literally have to go on an episode of “Naked And Afraid” to lose any substantial amount of weight.
  • You purchase alcohol, and you break into your rendition of “the happy dance”, if the cashier asks you for your ID.
  • Every time you look in the mirror you notice another patch of gray hair not just a single hair here and there.  There’s also a new laugh line even though you don’t laugh much these days.

Turning 40 #overthehill #aging #gettingolder

  • Your mood swings have become more like large capsules of time.
  • You squint at everything forgetting that your glasses are sitting on top of your head.

I am sure there are many more but at 40 something I can’t remember.

That’s A Wrap ~ 2015

goodbye 2015 goals stats 2016

I still can’t bring myself to accept that another year has come and gone.  It seems like just yesterday I was making the decision whether to do something with this blog or shut it down and that was back in March.  My most viewed piece that month was “I Met Him On The Internet” with 296 views.  It’s the story behind how I met my husband.

My best month this year was July with 3,456 views for the month.  The top viewed post was “What Do Bloggers Actually Do?“.  A funny piece that only we as bloggers would understand that brought in 272 views.

But my winning post for the year goes to the letter I wrote to Whirlpool Corporation after my $1500 washer took a crap at only 14 months old.  It was entitled “One Pissed Off Customer” and received 467 views, 324 of them were in one day on June 3rd.  It also got me blocked from their Twitter.  Yes people, a major billion dollar corporation BLOCKED little ol’ me from their Twitter.  But in the end they paid for my washer to get fixed and it wasn’t under warranty.

I uploaded 984 pictures.  I like being visual obviously.

My top 5 commenters were Rockin Random Mom, Cuddle Fairy, Growing Up Kater Tot, Random Musings, and Flop Til You Drop.  So I would like to thank Michelle, Becky, Katie, Debbie, and Sandi for taking time out of their days to leave me such awesome comments!

I also want to give a HUGE thank you to not only all the bloggers who share my crazy thoughts and mayhem across all their social networks but also to my friends (especially Lynn, Shaina, Tammy, and Stacy) YOU ALL ROCK!  Sharing my stuff puts a huge smile on my face 😆!

My top reference guide for leading people to my blog came from Facebook with 2,222.  Followed by Twitter with 1,726.  Search engines such as google, bing, and yahoo at 1,437.  And the top country in which my views came from was right here in the good ol USA with 14,795 followed by the UK with 5,675.

And at the time I am writing this post there has been 26,952 peeks at my blog and I now have a following of 8,459 peeps.

So what lies ahead for me for 2016?
