Working Mom Wednesday

Linking to Work, Wife,Mom...Life! for Working Mommy Wednesday. For this week the discussion is: Your work/ home/ room/ drive to work/ morning routine in pictures.

Hello ladies, I've come to love WMW! Great women visit my blog and I get so many idea's and inspiration from reading your blogs!! Today I'm sharing a few photos because I'm too haggard from packing for my flight with husband, two kids and a dog to write anything of value but I will be checking in with each of you to see what you have to say!

My photo routine is to demonstrate what I look like when I leave the house and then at the end of the day.

I start off great, make up is done, hair is curly and framing my face nicely, outfit is pressed (sometimes) and I'm generally calm and happy.

End of the day hair is pulled back in a messy clip sort of way, arms bogged down with water, pump equipment in camouflage bag, laptop bag, Sally doll from Nightmare before Christmas for work project and purse.

Have a great Wednesday ladies!!!

I have recently given up fixing my hair in the morning because it will just end up in a pony tail as well :) So I just save myself the hassle and start with it pulled back! You look great though :) Happy Wednesday back at ya!

ps - could you send me your email address, I'd like to send you a personal response to your comment you left me yesterday. thanks!

lol I know the feeling! I resemble a pack mule by the time I make it home, dragging my bags and my stuff as well as my kids. :) Following from WMW.

I love that your water bottle is so big and has a handle! Awesome! I completely understand feeling like a pack-horse en route to the car. Sometimes it takes me several trips to load everything up.

Just stopping by from WMW!

You manage to press clothes??? I'm so impressed, even if it's sometimes!

Your hair looks like it might be similar in texture to mine. Here's how I handle that with "class": I get out of the shower, put Morrocanoil or some other product on the ends, and twist into a bun. Then alternately throughout the day I take it down and let it air dry to the next level of damp, then back into the bun. By the end of the day my hair looks Fab-u-lous, naturally wavy and I haven't spent the whole day with it in my face!

WMW visitor!
I understand totally!
Only, I always seem to have groceries to haul inside, too.

I start off short (and easy!), curl my hair with brush and hair dryer to frame my face (natural wave helps) and go! Last till lunch if I am lucky. LOL!

Just don't you DARE cut your hair short again. I am LOVING your locks. :)

Julia Ladewski said...

Gina said...

Can totally relate. Hair looks great in the morning and in a ponytail by mid afternoon. Loved this post. Thanks for sharing.

LOL, this is great. I'm so jealous of your job, too. I feel like I look like your end-of-work picture ALL THE TIME! Except when I take photos for my blog, I mean. ;D
