This afternoon, while doing my blog reading, I was hit again by that proverbial 2x4 by God. Seriously. It hurt. But it certainly got my attention.
A few years ago I started to feel the conviction to wear skirts/dresses only. Many who have met me probably wouldn't think of me as a girly-girl. I don't even think of myself as a girly-girl! I'm a tomboy. Still am. I love to play sports. I still don't wear make-up on a daily basis. I rarely paint my nails. A bad hair day gets a bandanna thrown on top of it. I don't do dress-up. It's just not me.
My daily dress typically consists of jeans, a t-shirt, and a sweatshirt if I'm cold. I wear crocs every day. In fact, last winter I only wore my boots about 2-3 days the whole winter and we had a TON of snow. If it was plowed, I wore my crocs. If it wasn't, I wore boots. I much prefer my crocs. I have a winter pair so that works great.
There are the same color as mine.
So anyway...while reading this afternoon I came across a challenge over at Tons of Sons to wear skirts/dresses for seven days straight. I continually feel a pull in my heart to do this. I do not have the power alone to manage it though. I always come up an excuse to stop...it's too cold, I don't look nice in dressed, I'm too overweight, etc. & so on.
However, I'm joining the challenge put out there to dress more femininely. My hubby loves to see me in dresses, but never gives me a hard time about my jeans. ::big grin:: To hear him tell it, he likes those just as much. ;-) But I notice a difference. I'm surrounded by little men daily. My boys notice when I wear a skirt. Seriously. At least one of them will comment on how nice I look when I put a skirt on. What could be sweeter than to hear my little four year old tell me that I look "really pretty" when I have on a dress. I notice a difference in how I act.
So starting tomorrow I am embarking on a seven day challenge to wear a skirt every day. I'll be sure to let you know the results and maybe even post a photo or two.
