A little frumptastic, eh? You're not alone.

"Mommy, pleeeeeeeeeeeease get me some cereal?!"

"Yep, okay, I'm up {pull covers closer}...just give me a minute {ahem, 10 more minutes)..."

You get up (finally!), and look for something comfortable...warm...soft...easy. You make your way to the kitchen and start making breakfast (ahem, coffee) and the babes something to eat. Time goes by and the day has begun.

And you're still not dressed.

Not really anyway. You wouldn't venture out to the coffee shop like this (maybe the drive through, but that's it), and you sure as heck wouldn't show up for lunch at your husband's work looking like you do...all disheveled and slightly stinky (have you brushed your teeth yet?).

And here you are just a wee bit (I'm being nice) frumptastic for your family. How do you feel? Do you feel productive or lazy? Energized or tired? Pretty, or... {shudder}.

When I don't at least put on some jeans and a cute shirt, a bit of makeup (hey, if the barn needs painted, paint it), and do something with this Mufasa hair of mine, I feel lazy, icky, and tired. I would hide if my husband brought someone home unexpectedly. Sure, I'm comfortable, and who really has time to look nice with little ones who need fed and a home taken care of? I mean surely if I had a maid and mother's helper I'd get dressed, right? Right?!

Maybe.

But that's not the point. The point is, I think we'll be better (happier) mamas, wives, and homemakers if we take care of ourselves in the little things.

I know I feel better when I take the extra 10 or 15 minutes to find something cute to wear, put on some makeup, and attempt to tame the beast (ahem, Mufasa). I bet most of you do to.

So here's what I'm proposing: Let's get dressed, together.

The Get Dressed Challenge!
Yes, I realize it says..."to pumps", but you don't have to wear heels, the goal is to feel good, to get dressed, and enjoy your days more. Personally, I'm forgoing the heels and checking out some super cute slippers to wear with my cute outfits....

Etsy is a storehouse for comfy cozy cute slippers!

If you want to join, just head over to Like a Warm Cup of Coffee and check it out (and link-up if you have a blog). The format is a month-long motivotional (motivation + devotional) beginning Monday where we work towards making getting dressed a habit.

What are you waiting for? Let's get dressed!
