So many kids, I don't know what to do.

Attaboy!

So you all correctly deduced that it my bra I was trying to get out of the picture of Shaye Baby playing with the tub faucet.
It isn't just any bra. It is one of those Victoria Secret Incredible Bras. They are awesome.
I was skeptical when the saleslady had me try it on, but it is far more comfortable than any other bra I have ever worn.

At 45.00 I definitely balked at the price. That IS Victoria's Secret - she gets people addicted to expensive purple bras.
(Maybe one day I will buy another one so I don't have to rotate in the bra that is so uncomfortable I whip it off through my sleeve in the parking lot after work. A trick I learned from my mother.)

Do do you wonder WHY it was there?

Yes..we will be moving on from my underwear now.

I am going to divulge this to you because I want to know if I am the only who does this.

Every Sunday night I go into my closet and lay out my clothes out for the week. Yup.
I lay out five outfits complete with shoes, undies, jewelry, belts, ect. I put them in order Monday, Tuesday, Wedne..........well, you know the days of the week.
If it needs to ironed I iron it. If something that goes with it needs washing I throw it in the washer.
I have to make certain decisions like whether or not I want to wear a dress two days in a row. Also I only wear my highest heels on Thursdays because we have meetings that day and less classes.
I just don't want to go through this every night and I would rather just do it on Sunday.


Many people might ask, "What if you don't FEEL like wearing that outfit when you get up that morning." I guess I would ditch it, but that really doesn't happen. I don't spend a boatload of money on my clothes, but I like all the clothes I own. I feel like I am finally at a point in my life where I know what I like and what I think looks good and most importantly where I am not too terribly concerned if someone else thinks otherwise.

So...........that's why it was there.
Do you do the same thing?
Or...what organization quirks do you have?
Do you make your kids lay out their breakfast items the night before. (Pop-tarts put on the counter or cereal poured into a bowl with a spoon next to it.) I do.
I want to feel more normal and also I want to steal your ideas, so get going!

And here is a picture of my husband's side of the closet. He doesn't have to lay out his clothes. It is pretty easy to figure out which red shirt goes with which khaki pants.

Here is what you need for some hopping fun.

  1. Holy organization Batman! Sorry I do nothing of the sort. I am a seat of the pants kind of girl I guess.
    And somebody likes a little red!

  2. Now I am totally impressed. I just grab whatever I can find that looks decent to wear and run out the door. Some more organization and planning would not be such a bad idea. Maybe I'll try it next week.
    Did I mention I was impressed?

  3. I've done the clothes layout thing the night before, but never for the whole week. Now I just kinda put on whatever is clean and feels good! lol. As for VS's Incredible bra, I'd have to agree. It IS incredible!

  4. Wow..... that's crazy that you do that. If i did that I might actually match. Or not have dirty clothes that somehow got re-hung up. Or clothes that don't fit and somehow made it to the front of the closet.

    You might be on to something. And I'm going to check out the bra.

  5. This way you remember that you already wore "those" pants on Monday when you're looking for something to wear on Friday. Good ideas! Clean closet! I'm jealous!!

  7. Okay, you're the third person who's told me how awesome those bras are. Guess it's time for me to cough up the cash and buy one...

  8. Yowza, you plan much? I just make sure all the clothes are clean and then when I get up in the morning, I know something will strike me as suitable for pubic display.

    I used to save the suits for guests of the office, and that's about it.

  9. This was definitely funny and I laughed and loved it, but I have two words for you: Anal Retentive...I'm just sayin'....oh, and I do have a question for you: what if you wake up and there's 3 feet of snow on the ground...yes, in September!
