Time to start caring about what I look like again

I know Mike will cringe upon reading the title of this post, as he thinks I look great {and tells me so} every day, but I'm hoping that I can get to a point where I agree with him.

A year and a half ago I lamented that I didn't feel pretty anymore. But at the time, I wasn't particularly motivated to improve much about my appearance because we were already trying to get pregnant again. Why bother trying to clear up my skin and dye my hair regularly if pregnancy would throw a wrench in it all?

This time around, we'll be holding off on another baby for a while due to financial, space, and sanity reasons (not necessarily in that order). excuses. It's time to feel good about the way I look again.

Let's go!
First up: Clothes. About a month ago, I didn't want to wear maternity jeans anymore so I tried on all of my other jeans but it didn't go so well. Side note: muffin top is not a good look for anyone. So I invested in a few new pairs of jeans and tops. I hadn't bought new {non-maternity} clothes since before I was pregnant with Carina so this felt awesome. Thank you tax return! ;) I think I'll be on the lookout for a couple more Spring/Summer things soon.

Next up: Hair. I confessed to you 2 years ago that I hadn't had my hair cut in a long time. Well, guess when my last haircut was? ::hides:: Okay so it's definitely time (if not way overdue) for a haircut. And I've decided to go blonder. The sort-of blonde from last June just didn't do it for me. Lastly, I need to find a straightener that can tame my frizzy, thick hair in a short amount of time. Recommend yours?

Later: Body. Another thing I haven't done since before I got pregnant with Carina is exercise. I still have more than 10 lbs. left to lose to get to my pre-pregnancy weight and quite a bit of the "bag of saggy jello" remains. But more importantly I'd just like to be healthy and active.

So there it is. Hold me to it? Don't let me go 2 years before getting another haircut again ;)
