No Pictures – Mommy Makeover Challenge Day #5

I’m breaking the rules on day five of the Mommy Makeover Challenge, hosted by my friend The Naptown Organizer, because I didn’t take pictures. I’m sure you’ll forgive me…I was busy. C and I got off to a late start this morning because she slept in until around 9:15. It.was.glorious. We got breakfast out of the way and then started getting ready for the day…It was a race against the clock in our house.

Needless to say, I didn’t get a picture in before we left the house and I won’t take one now because my incredible toddler is peacefully napping (I’ve been taking pictures using her mirror). I know better than to wake a sleeping child.

Day of the Challenge? Today was day number five for me (The Naptown Organizer already finished her challenge, I was a little behind).
How long did it take you to get ready? It took me about a half hour to get ready. Not too shabby, am I right?!
What did you do differently than normal? C was sitting next to me while I was getting ready and was very curious to see what mommy was up to. So I decided to take a few minutes to straighten out her hair. I was nervous doing it but she was great.
Did you go anywhere outside of the home? We did. We’re fortunate to have my grandmother living only a half hour from us but we don’t get together as often as either party would like so now that I’m at home full-time I’m trying to make more of an effort to see family (my aunt and her kids also live near us, about forty-five minutes away). We met for lunch at a restaurant called Fritz’s in Crown Center. It was fun. I’m posting a picture of C from the restaurant because she’s just too adorable.
Did you feel any differently? I’m stressed today, I’ll admit it. I think it’s hitting me that I’m running low on time before our trip (more on that later) and I haven’t done anything to prepare. On top of that, I’ve been abnormally busy lately so it doesn’t make it any easier to get my house in order, pack, and write everything out (more on that later, too) before we leave.
Now on to the cute stuff….my first picture of C on this blog:

I’ll be doing the Mommy Makeover Challenge for two more days (until the 11th) but if you haven’t started yet and want to join in, you can find the rules here. Until next time…

Question of the day: What stresses you out?
