Frumps to Pumps Challenge Day 2

Day 2 of the Frumps to Pumps Challenge was about "Knowing your Why".  Why do I want to get dressed everyday instead of just staying in my pj's or comfy sweats??  I have a few reasons for wanting to do this challenge:

1.  To feel better about myself - when I get dressed, I feel more self-confident.  When I take those extra 10 minutes in the morning to put on some makeup, it makes me feel special.

2. To more productive - The mornings I haven't showered and wear my sweats all day, are the days I am the least productive.  All I want to do is sit around and take care of the kids.  Taking care of the kids is a job in its self, but I should want to do more with my time and my life.  I also don't want to leave the house when I don't get dressed.  Who wants other people to see them in sweats?  Some people might not care but I do.

3.  To show my family I care about myself and them - Right now I don't put a lot of effort into looking nice.  I dress up for church and that's about it.  Most other times I am in jeans and t-shirts and no make-up.  I was never a girl that really got dressed up or wore a lot of make-up but I did put a little more effort into it before I had kids.  Usually my husband doesn't care about what I am wearing but doesn't he still deserve a wife that looks nice and cares about herself?  How about my daughter?  What kind of example am I setting for her?  Do I really want her to dress the same way when she gets older??  I really need to set a good example for my daughter so that she knows it's ok to look nice all the time and not only when we are going out.  Shouldn't I wear my best clothes for the people I love, not random strangers?

4.  To not have to run upstairs to throw on real clothes when the doorbell rings unexpectedly - This reason is silly but it is a valid reason none the less.

  1. This sounds like a good challenge. Since I've been back to work part time (meaning I have to get dressed and put a little makeup on), I feel so much better about myself.
