Dear Romper

Dear Romper,

You are so cute & make me feel young…wait, am I too old to be wearing rompers?  I suppose that’s a different topic.  Anyway, I’m not sure how to (AHEM)….use the bathroom in you.  Do I swing both arms behind my back, unbutton the teeny tiny button, and pull you completely down?  I promise I’ll do my best to not let you hit the ground or stomp on you if down there.  What if the only bathroom choice I have is a GASP…. A porta potty??!  I suppose that’s also a different topic.

 

Do I gracefully pull you to one side in a second desperate attempt to side straddle the toilet bowl. I promise I won’t dribble pee (AHEM) pee on you…I know you ladies got that visual loud and clear.

What if you’re lookin’ super ROMPER cute on a first date.  And because of nerves, you drink a bit too much champagne.  So you’re forced to the ladies room, in a cramped stall, in a tipsy state, and into a panic.  Your mind starts to race because if your new crush thinks you’re in the bathroom for too long….OH MY POOP.  Whatever you do, don’t rip your romper.  She’s cute and loves you and wants you to be happy on your first date.  Stay calm and ask for help!  Your fellow stallmate will understand.

 

I’d so appreciate any tips from my fellow romper wearin’ ladies out there.  Now if you’ll excuse me…you know where to find me.

Here’s a link to one of my favorites – happy shopping!!

Styling tip!

Do you own dresses that maybe make you feel like you forgot your pants?  Styling TIP:  knot your dress to one side and throw some shorts on under it.  Nothing worse than feeling like you can’t bend over to do something because you’ll flash something.  Especially helpful when handling small children/sticky fingers.  Linked below is my entire outfit – all currently ON SALE!  Happy shopping!

5 things NOT TO DO in a gym

How to behave in a gym
From, a high end gym working professional

RULE #1: I’M SWEATNIG AND PANTING, NO TIME TO TALK!
Don’t approach women and attempt to start up conversation while they’re on any piece of equipment…unless you look like Bradley Cooper. Dear Mr. coming my way. I see you in my periphery. Even though my head is hanging, I’m frowning and my shoulders are slumped, you keep coming toward me. My inner dialogue is, “don’t talk to me, don’t talk to me, don’t talk to me.” Yet, you insist! WHY?!!!! I’m sweaty, red faced, out of breath and trying to workout. Please, no. There will be no “us,” sir.
*Full disclosure. I met my husband at a gym. He said hi to me and I ignored him. Perfect start to our marriage.

RULE #2: YOUR SWEAT SHOULD BE ON YOU, NO ONE ELSE… JUST YOU!
The unthinkable happened last week. A hairy, sweaty arm brushed against mine eliciting my involuntary, aggressive, quite audible ROAR followed by an eye roll and dramatic wipe off with my clean towel. There isn’t enough soap or hot water to scrub away that feeling. WHY??!! How could this have happened to me?!! I am SO careful about where I’m working out in relation to others. This Mr. needed these rules read to him, stat.

RULE #3: STOP SLAMMING YOUR WEIGHTS!
Ahhh yes, the familiar sounds of grunting, snorting, heavy breathing, and panting followed by KA-BOOOOOOM! Cue the awkward silence, eye rolling, and general disbelief that any adult needs attention that badly. Dear Mr. I-took-too-much-protein-powder-mixed-with-creatine-this-morning, we understand you are trying to blow off some steam, but come on?! Does that process have to scare the living s&%t out of everyone else in the gym?

RULE #4. DON’T TALK TO ME WHILE I’M NAKED!
In the locker room, it is NEVER OK to strike up a conversation while completely undressed or partially undressed. I don’t know where to look. And staring straight into someone’s eyes for too long makes me the creepy one. Let’s be real, this isn’t Europe. We are not ready for boobs in our face while talking about carpool pickup or the hot new restaurant that just opened.

RULE #5: WIPE YOUR SWEATY MARKS OFF THE BENCH!
I understand that on a microbial level, a simple wipe of the leather won’t eliminate my risk of catching whatever bacterial contagion your excretions carry, but, I’d just rather not HAVE TO SIT IN IT! Please, please, please, be a decent person and wipe it off.

I have this things for shoes…

You too?  Good…I’m not alone.  I’m flippin’ for these sandals!  The metallic adds just the right amount of color to your pretty feet.  I’m rather self conscious of my size 10 feet and I grew an extra bone on the right side of my foot during pregnancy.  (It was worth it)  Here’s the link to my favorite knit T and sandals and happy shopping!
