Not Me! Monday


It's therapy and it's free. Participate already! All you have to do is admit to things that you did not do (which, of course, you really did), head over to MckMama's and read about other bone-headed things other people didn't do (which, of course, they really did), link up, and feel a ton better after you've done it!

Since I always work on my Not Me! Monday through out the week, ahem, I did not find myself actually dreaming in the early morning hours of Monday about my post, what I would write, and how I would write it. That would just be down right obsessive. So I totally wouldn't have done that. Since you can control dreams and all.

Here's what I did not come up with for this week...

I'm one of those people that have neither naturally curly or naturally straight hair. It's not even a nice wavy. I tend to think of it as slightly "bent" in some areas. Not attractive. So Saturday night after a warm (and not gonna lie...sweaty and sticky) day I decided I would like to take a shower before I slipped into my NON-FLANNEL (thankyouverymuch!) sheets. The only problem with me taking night showers (which I love!) is that come morning "my hair just doesn't part right" (that's for all you fellow "National Lampoon Christmas Vacation" and Eddie lovers). However, on this fine Sunday morning during this fine weekend I awoke to hair that I thought I might just be able to do something with. The "something" being a "wavy" 'do! So after much spraying of water, product application, and playing around scrunching the you-know-what out of my hair I was actually quite pleased with how my unnatural "wavy" look turned out!

ALL that to say, when I walked out of my bathroom, the first the thing my darling daughter did NOT say was, "What's wrong with your hair?! It's all messy!". I did not thank her and proceed to go on our merry way to church, messy hair and all...


You would have not found me 2 nights in a row, piddling around the house until the ridiculous hours of the wee morning doing all kinds of important things absolutely nothing. However, if that had happened and you had found me the next mornings paying dearly for it, you would also not have found me thankful that at least one of those nights...er...mornings I was awake and therefore able to pray for a bloggy friend who was also awake with her precious little boy who was having his first runs of SVT and Bradycardia since being home from the hospital.


I did not feel great about having the computer off for the majority of the weekend so I could enjoy that amazing, wonderful, fun-filled time with my family. Nope. Not me. I would definitely not say that, because it might in some way look like I was admitting to needing to spend less time on the computer. Hmm...


Over the weekend, I did not snap a picture, focusing in on my daughter's adorable tummy which was on display in last year's swimsuit because I wanted to document a time in life when this is actually cute, unlike the muffin top that "graces" my figure. I say "graces" loosely.


I'm pretty sure her daddy (along with her brothers and papa) is definitely not going to have to build up his gun collection and put up the electrical fence around the house to keep would be suitors away in the years to come. What do you think?? Oh and she did not get her propensity for posing from her mama. Nope. Definitely not. And don't let my high school and college friends tell you any differently.

In case you were having a hard time seeing, let's not get a closer look at that cuteness...
I don't think I could end on a better picture than that, so until next week...when, of course, I will NOT have done anything that I would feel the need to Not Me! about...

My hair def has a mind of it's own, especially after a night shower. It's kind of like the lottery the next morning, but I usually don't win with a style i like. Cute post.

Nice to see a bloggah in my time zone. :)

I most certainly do NOT have bent hair either. Because my hair is ALWAYS perfectly straight. Even when I sleep on it. And I most certainly would never have to cram my whole head up in my bathroom sink trying to wet my hair after the remnants of night showering.

And I think that you and I have already established our muffin top connection. You have a muffin top...I have a muffin top...let's just eat more muffins and make it a party! But Miss Thang sports hers remarkably well. Q.T.Pie.

Your daughter is simply adorable.

Happy NMM!

Ilove reading your blog.

I'm afraid a team of rabid dogs won't keep the boys away. We are considering locking our girl up, maybe we should lock them up together so they have a friend.
