Thoughts for a busy girl: is it important to be pretty?

 I have to be honest, today is the first time in 2 weeks that i have put makeup on and did my hair, ever since we moved into our new house. Life has just been really busy. But yesterday was a pretty overwhelming day, and it got me thinking: I need to take the time to take care of myself. 

I dont think its important to be pretty, but to feel pretty. Its amazing how much better i feel about myself and my busy life if i take the time to put some makeup on, fix my hair and put some pretty clothes on. Audrey actually takes about 3 naps a day, a couple hours each. So i decided to use her first nap in the morning to fix myself up a bit and just have some tea and relax. Have some ME time. Then i feel ready to tackle my day. Do any of you out there feel the same? What do you do to make time for yourself?

You look beautiful:) and I agree, we should have ME time, and feel pretty:) sometimes (a lot of times) I wear ugly sweats and olegs t-shirts, and he doesnt like it so much, and it definitely doesnt make me feel pretty or confident.. Theres just something about looking nice that boosts your mood..
