Remember when Gabby looked like this?

25 Oct

OK, you might not want to admit that you watched Desperate Housewives.  For me…I totally admit that I watched it in the beginning.  Hell, I even dvr’d (that might be my own word) it. Then they did that stupid fast forward five years and the show started to get corny. Well…maybe the show was never very realistic but it got to the point in the series where you didn’t admit to watching it anymore.  Or if you got drawn into an episode, you quickly changed the channel when your husband (or significant other) walked in the room so you didn’t have to suffer the embarrassment of being caught watching something so stupid.  Or maybe that was just me?

The show did have some realistic parts.  Call me a desperate housewife if you will…but my friend/neighbor, Tina, and I have had coffee together in the mornings.  We have even stood outside with our coffee and “chatted” about other neighbors.  And while I didn’t look quite like Terry Hatcher when her towel fell off outside, I have walked my garbage to the curb in my pajamas (they are pretty sexy…an old work tshirt and owl PJ pants).  Anyway, as moms…weather you work in or out of the home…we have all been caught looking like Gabby after she had kids.


I mean to me…add a bobby pin and a necklace and she is damn near dressed up!  At least that’s a phase I went thru at times with three kids all under 3.5 years.  But lately I have wanted to look more put together.  More like I made an effort…at least most days.  So I want to do a series of fun, comfortable, affordable, Made in the USA  (of course) outfits that we can throw on as quickly as Gabby’s outfit above but still look like we made an effort.  Or in my case like I have all my “stuff” (are you allowed to say bad words on a blog?) together.

Incidentally when searching for pics on line I found this picture of “frumpy mom Gabby”


Is it wrong to me if she added a necklace and a ring I think she would look fine? Hmmm I might need fashion police!
OK…enter our contest so we can get this show rolling 🙂
