Say what! Isn't this a blog about adoption???? You bet your baby booties it is!
This past year, as we prepared all of our documentation for the adoption of our daughter, things were crazy busy. With that said, I was doing good to make sure I had on clean clothes with all of the early mornings, late nights, and running around to get paperwork completed. Given the craziness of everything, this mama and wife put 'primping' on the backburner. Okay...can I be fully honest? Even before the adoption, 'bringing sexy to our marriage' has not always been my number one priority. Yet, I really believe that it is important to continue romance, excitement, and even 'sexiness' in marriage.
So, for those of us who are on this adoption journey together, let's not forget about our hubbies. Although we take care of the needs of our families (meals, laundry, errands, etc.), try not to give a backseat to taking care of YOU and your hubby's desires. But how in the world is a mama...an adoptin' mama....supposed to fit this all in with all of the other craziness???? Little by little.
So....here and there in a series of blog posts called 'Time Out for Mommy", I'll be sharing with you how I'm bringing my 'sexy' back in my marriage....***giggle*** I really believe the key to being 'sexy' for your mate is really about exuding self-confidence. Sure a cute piece of lingerie and lips poppin' with gloss don't hurt either but self-confidence is at the top of the list.
Along with exuding self-confidence, I like the idea of being just a bit more 'girly' but I'm really a no-fuss type of chick. In the past few years, I've grown to prefer flats over pumps and wash & wear over dryclean only. Whether it's throwing on a little lip gloss, learning to do make-up, or stepping up my wardrobe game, I'd love for you to come along this journey with me in my "Time-Out for Mommy" blog posts. There's even a 'class' that I've been intrigued about taking but if I do....I'll have to decide whether I blog about it. (smile) Watch out Justin Timberlake-------cuz----------I'm bringing sexy back! LOL
What about you? Is there anything you'd like to do differently or more of to spice up your marriage or make yourself feel a little more confident?
So who's in our household right now...well, there's my husband (Tony), CJ, and MJ...and we can't forget our little bundle in waiting! We are currently pursuing adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. In this blog, we'll chronicle our process and our 'waiting room' experience. So hang out in the waiting room with us. We'd love the company!
