And that's when it all went to hell.
I CANNOT paint my nails! I'm sloppy. I make a mess. I apply too many coats, and ALWAYS before letting the previous coats dry completely. I saw a giggle-worthy picture on Pinterest that depicts my "nail polish prowess" to a tee (or is it just "T"?):
|I can relate!|
SO...in an effort to beautify myself, I decided to shave my legs. It should be noted that I am part primate. I have lots of hair. Hair here and hair there. Hairy, hairy everywhere! (Dr. Seuss just might be our pediatrician.) I turned on the hot water, filled the tub with bubble bath, and slid down into "Calgon bliss."
It didn't last.
I had one leg done when I heard a Bang! Bang! Bang! on the door. Lilly burst into the bathroom and yelled, "Mom! Mom! Camren took all of his diapers out of the bag! He's throwing them down our stairs. He's making a mess! He dumped his goldfish crackers on my floor. And I can't find Sally. I think she's under your bed, trying to eat my sock." (I probably don't have to tell you that I got out of the bathtub. One hairy leg. One smooth one.)
Later, in an effort to beautify myself, I decided to try my hand at "the smoky eye." How to create the perfect smoky eye has eluded me for years...and then my little sis introduced me to Cara. (Or rather, Cara's blog...maskcara.com)
Yep, the girl is smokin'! And a makeup artist to boot. I watched her tutorials, pulled out my enormous makeup bag, found my favorite eyeshadow brush, and went to work. Here's a picture of my end results (and I may have done something wrong):
|See? I told you I was muy hairy.|
By the end of my "day of beautification," I had thrown in the towel. Instead, I chose to eat an exorbitant amount of Whoppers before bedtime. (You know, the chocolate malt ball kind?!)
Hey. It's what I know.
Have a beautiful weekend!
