I Just Can't Do It All

I am not one of those mommies who always looks presentable, shaves on a regular basis, and has her fingers and toes nicely painted all the time. I have 2 babies 13 months apart and I work part time. This translates into 0 time for self-maintenance. I know there are some of you out there who manage to do all and maintain yourselves nicely...I am not that talented. We have established this before, I am Frump Girl. Now that I have explained all this, the above picture should be self-explanatory. However, my boss has not yet discovered this about me. Yesterday, since it was like 90 degrees, I decided to wear open-toed shoes to work despite the sad state of my toe nails. I figured no one would notice and even if they did, they'd sympathize with me being a mother of two and understand that I do not have time to get my toes done so they would not call attention to the disaster that is my feet. Well, I had almost made it to the end of the day when on my way out of my boss's office he said, "Hey, what's that on your feet?" Quick put some socks on and hide your feet...Oh crap! There's no time for that! "Ummm, just my chipped nail polish." He and the other lady who was walking down the hall way at the same time stopped to take a closer look at my hideous un-pedicured toes. Great! Why did I think it was safe to wear open-toed shoes?!" He told me that he thought I had some crazy designs on my toes nails but I assured him that it was just 3 month old chipped nail polish!...Note to self: Even if it is 120 degrees outside, if your toes are not presentable wear close toed shoes to work.

I almost thought I was looking at my own feet when I opened up your page. :) I used to use the excuse when I was pregnant that I couldn't reach my feet but now I have no excuse and they still look like this. Oh well. You should have made those people paint your toes when you went for the photoshoot.

Oh my gosh... we are laughing so hard here!!! Okay well if it is just your toes you have to worry about no worries. You always look great!

You're too funny girl! I go through the SAME THING!!! It usually takes 3 months before I make the time to do my toes. I so envy the gals that get their pedis every other week! But with two toddlers, NO WAY JOSE. No time. P.S., you're one HOT frump girly girl!

Taleah - Just thought I'd share - I love reading your blog from time to time. I know you are a super busy mom, plus you have to work part time for Chuck!

I am a flip flop girl and would wear them every day if I could...even in the freezing cold. So, on a serious note, if you want to know I go to Happy Nails in Chino and the polish seems to last a few months.....not sure what it's made of, but at least it stays on. :) I certainly don't make it very often, maybe every 3 months or so. I'm sure once the baby comes I won't be going as often.

yep looks like my feet but my feet are way uglier, due to years of figure skating. It's not like polish helps them look any better anyways haha...
