I made a vow when I found out that I was pregnant that I would not allow myself to go ungroomed, frumpy or without my cute shoes. True to my vow, at 5 months pregnant, I wore my fantastic Carlos Santana black platforms to a funeral paired with a cute black suit. It was tasteful I assure you. 

My husband and I have always bantered and had a great time together, and I did not want to allow the sparks to fly away while I was gaining weight and getting uncomfortable. Hence, after having Lily 10 weeks early I realized that the only pregnancy pictures that I have, are the ones that I took in my jean cut off booty shorts and a plaid shirt. Yes, I'm that mom. :) Hey, pregnant doesn't mean dead, right?? 

Post pregnancy, I've realized that my self-confidence level has declined a bit. My boobs sit a bit lower and smaller than they did pre-baby, and I'm a bit fluffier in the midsection, even though I never got "big". Because of these insecurities, I have vowed to start running again to get in shape. The stairs at the new house are already doing wonders for my backside, but I need the maintenance everywhere else too. Of course, that does nothing for the boobs, but hey, you can't win them all.

I've noticed that I've gone back to my comfortable black and monochrome wardrobe, and try to wear things that accentuate the right places while hiding others. Is this the best and most attractive way to dress?? Probably not, but until I get in shape, I suppose it will have to do. I could always pull a page from Jane Austen and start wearing my corset all the time under my clothes, but that might be a bit uncomfortable. Hubby might like it though, so who knows?? 

I'm proud of myself for having stayed true to my vow, even though I didn't get to carry Lily to term. Now, moving forward I am vowing to myself anew to get in shape and try to be the best "hot mama" that I can possibly be. My husband deserves to see me at my best, and I love the way he notices when I go the extra mile to impress him. 

It also does me a world of good when I take the time to put on makeup or style my hair. I feel better and end up in a better mood. The extra attention doesn't hurt my spirits either. SO, to all of you moms out there, don't be afraid to be "hot", and to strut your stuff. Being a wife, mom, and total super hero doesn't mean that we can't also be hot... just think about Wonder Woman.. if she can save the world and look that great, so can we!! :)
