Derek and I met working in a nightclub. He was a V.I.P. host and I was an alcohol promo girl… It was love at first sight! Some would say we were living the “glamorous life” since we only worked weekends and were able to go out and have fun the rest of the week. In fact, our first date was a day trip to Disneyland where we ended up upgrading our tickets to annual passes. That’s when I knew he was a keeper! When we became parents, it was a HUGE lifestyle change. I am now a full time stay-at-home mom and Derek works extremely hard at a “regular” job with “normal hours.” I’m sure if you asked any of my friends or family they would say that I transitioned effortlessly into mommyhood… Being a mom really does seem to come naturally to me BUT the biggest challenge for me has been trying to take care of myself. I never wanted to be a “frumpy mom” but I’m ashamed to admit that I now go days at a time without doing (or even washing) my hair. And I’ve even been known to rock the sweatpants multiple days in a row too! (This is coming from someone who pre-baby wouldn’t wear the same outfit twice.) So now that I’ve survived the first year of being a mom… Join me as I try to find “myself” again and discover what’s haute (and not) for moms and babies.
