Never underestimate the power of a little body glitter and some wings...

Parenting can take you to extremes...heavenly joy one minute, hellish frustration the next. Your days can become a blur of lunchboxes, birthday parties, soccer games, frantic mornings, and endless bedtimes. Being a parent almost defines you. Your life revolves around these precious little beings.

Which is why it's really nice, every once in a while, to swap the holiday-themed t-shirt and hair clip for some stilettos and eye glitter...

Admittedly, it took a strong cocktail to get me to walk out of the house like that...but boy, did it do wonders for my self-esteem (and it didn't hurt my marriage much). I'm not one to quote pop stars (I swear), but maybe Usher knows what he's talking about when he sings the "DJ's got us fallin' in love again." 'Cause for a few hours, we sure didn't feel like Mama and Daddy, and in spite of the splitting headache we fought off in the morning, trick or treating tonight was even more fun because we'd felt like we'd played hookie the night before.

  2. I TOTALLY understand the lack of carbs from your lunch these last couple of weeks. You sure don't look like Mom and Dad! Awesome costumes!

    And for the record, it would have taken a FEW STRONG cocktails to get me out of the house looking like that...Just sayin'...

  8. Holy Duo, girlfriend. You two look fantastic. Freaking amazing. The hawtness coming off of the both of you is inspiring. Like, maybe I should get to the gym. Or, maybe I should jump onto my husband the minute he walks in the door. Or, maybe I should play dress up.

    Okay. And now I'm rambling. Just know you look gorgeous!
