Five on Friday

Ok, this requires viewer participation, even if anonymously! I have questions. Not too difficult and I want answers. This is a girlie post. Be forewarned.

1- Do you like your appearance now or ten years ago? Me, since I worked on a few things mid last year I think I like myself better now. This is a hard question for me. I've got a few wrinkles, some dry January skin going on, but I'm ok right now. 10yrs ago I had a puffy face, was trying to get pregnant (took 2 1/2 yrs!)and was stuck in my 8-5 job rut with little exercise. I guess along life's road, you will always have self image ups and downs.

2- Do you wear makeup everyday? Me? I wear it more often than not. I feel a little naked without it; mainly eye makeup. Ah hmm. Self image again? I think I get the makeup thing from my mom. Afterall, when I called her after midnight years ago to say I was engaged, I believe the first thing out of her mouth was "Aren't you so glad you did your nails?" even though I had no clue it was going to happen and can't believe she remembered I had done my nails before I left their house.

3- Do you bikini wax or do it yourself some other method? I NEVER thought I would do this. Ever. Then I went and did it while living in Atlanta a few years ago and I couldn't believe it took me so long to do it. Yes, it's painful, but so is childbirth and we survived that didn't we?

4- If you had an extra $150 to spend on yourself, would you: go get a mani/pedi, spa day, buy a bag, buy some shoes, or save it for a rainy day? Me? I can shop and get a deal so I'm cheating. I'd probably get the mani/pedi and buy more shoes.

5- What is one thing you'll never do? I've got a lot of these. 1)I will never drive a mini van. 2) I will never have really short hair. 3) I will never sky dive.
4) I will never wear white after Labor Day. 5) I will never wear sweats or sweatshirt or any variation of workout attire shopping. It really kills me to see women that looked like they rolled out of bed to go shopping. I keep expecting Clinton and Stacy to rush up to them for an upcoming episode of "What Not to Wear".

Ok, I want to see your answers. Either post on your blog and let me know when you do or answer in my comments. Have a great weekend!

1. I think I looked better 10 yrs ago. (I was ten yrs younger).
2. I wear make-up if I know I am going out (even just to the grocery store) and there is a chance there will be someone I know.
3. Due to a health issue I do the shaving myself.(I have DVT and have been told by the docs that shaving is the only way I can go).
4. I
need my hair cut so I'd spend it on that and then save the rest.
5.Again due to the DVT I don't think I'll bungee jump.

1. Um, 10 years ago. 10 years ago I wasn't fat and pregnant. :-)

2. No. I curl my eyelashes everyday and I use a tad of mascara and lipstick. I never wear eye liner - it makes me look like a hooker - and I only wear foundation if I'm going out. My toenails are ALWAYS painted and my finger nails are rarely painted.

3. I have a bikini wax in the summer and do it myself the rest of the year. I also have my eyebrows threaded regularly because I have bushy eyebrows I inherited from my father.

4. I would spend the money on mani/pedi, movie and lunch or dinner out with friends.

5. Do yoga pants count in your "I will never..." statement? If so, you'd hate me. I wear yoga pants almost every day now. I will never: eat a Big Mac (never have and now it's just a streak thing I have going), have plastic surgery, use a tanning bed, smoke or get a tattoo.

1. I'd have to say I look better now, at age 41 than I did at age 31. Mostly because I have a better hairstyle and got me some "fashion sense" about 5 years ago.

2. I almost always wear make-up, but sometimes by the end of the day you wouldn't know it if I don't have time to "refresh" after lunch.

3. Never had a bikini wax and don't plan to. Totally a do-it-yourselfer.

4. Without a doubt I'd take the $150 and run to the nearest spa.

5. I will never drive a minivan, never enter a bikini contest, never get a bikini wax (!), never fail to respond to an RSVP on an invite, never wear mom jeans, and never sing in public.

Oh, you remind me of where I was not so long ago with two sweet little boys. I long for those days again although I love seeing by boys them grow into their own. sigh. One thing I've learned is I never say 'never' anymore. It has bitten me more times than I care to admit. :) Love your musings.
