Not Me! Monday

Not Me! Monday was born out of one woman's desire to admit some of her imperfections and reveal a few moments she'd rather forget. I say why not. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!

Here is what I have not been up to lately. . .

When I got my hair cut & colored this week, I did not find out that it was my first visit since APRIL! I knew it had been a while as evidenced by my lovely roots, but I had no idea it had been that long.

I did not dress my daughter up on Saturday and bring her to a very hot, open field with some pretty, wispy grass just to celebrate the fact that my broken Canon is now back and operational. I also did not convince her to stay in one place by warning her that there could be snakes "out there." This did not terrify her much more than I intended.

I did not decide to take on yet another children's clothing line this season in addition to this one. If I did, it would be ridiculously cute and you could check it out here. (Both trunks are available for shows the rest of this month if anyone is interested!) I know what you're thinking...and no, I am not obsessed.

And last, I did not grocery-shop in one three-inch heel and one bare foot after the toe strap broke on one of my shoes. When I was hunched over trying to see if there was any way to salvage the situation, a well-meaning but clueless fellow shopper did not stop and say, "Honey, those aren't shopping shoes!" Um...really?!

I feel better now. What haven't you been up to?


  1. Yeah! I'm so glad your camera is back (and working!). I'm sure you felt lost without it. The shoe situation is too familiar when the same thing happened to me but at an all-ladies Church tea; I was a new particiapant! The top part of my sandal became unglued and was just flappin' in the wind without any way to rig it! Needless to say, I was pretty embarrassed! Miss you guys, too!!

  2. Oh Alli, you win! At least I didn't run into anybody I knew at the grocery store. If I did, they must have been hiding and pretending they didn't know me because I sure didn't see them :) Stupid, disobedient shoes!
