When I was contacted by ParentsConnect notifying me that I was chosen as a “Sexy, Sassy Mama Blogger” I had to chuckle a bit. The timing was ironic. I’m not one of those that feels even the slightest bit sexy when I’m pregnant. However, it’s made me think, “Why not?” I mean, sure everything is getting bigger, but that includes my boobs!! Big boobies, yay!
So pregnant, or not, here are just a few things that help me feel sexy:
Exercise – Ugh, I know. Boring right? But seriously, there’s nothing like an awesome sweaty workout to make me feel sexy. Yesterday I did an hour on the elliptical (thank you Bravo tv!) and I totally forgot that I look like a baby Orca whale… soon to be full grown Orca. Plus, I don’t know about you, but I love wearing tight clothes that hug in all the right places. Yoga pants don’t create muffin tops!
A new outfit – Sometimes shopping sucks. Don’t even get me started on the lighting in the Nordstrom dressing rooms. Are they trying to depress me? But when you find an outfit that you love and that makes you look hot it’s like winning the lottery. Then you wear that outfit 200 times until you decide that you probably need another hot outfit. Time to shop again!
Makeup – It’s amazing what a little bronzer and mascara can do for your confidence. I, more often than not, slack on wearing makeup because I HATE taking it off. I know, how lazy is that? So I will go days without wearing any makeup — looking oh so hot. Then I’ll put on some makeup and I’m seriously the hottest woman in the world. Watch out Angelina Jolie… Brad Pitt wouldn’t turn this down.
Sex - I won’t go into detail here, but what is sexier than having some hot sex? Don’t be a prude. Go read Fifty Shades of Grey and get back to me about that tingling in your nether regions.
Booze – Unfortunately, I cannot booze while I’m pregnant, but there’s no denying that after 1-2 drinks you start feeling sexy. You let your hair down and dance a little. And of course you are the best.dancer.ever! Don’t forget to make that kissy face at the camera! The longer the night… the sexier you feel. Just don’t look in the mirror the next morning.
As I write this I’m sitting in my yoga pants with my hair tied in a ponytail… no makeup and my natural deodorant already wearing off. I scream SEXY! I look down and see my growing belly and then I look at my cleavage. I better enjoy this now! Before my boobs get all saggy and National Geographic after breastfeeding. Who knows, maybe one day I can add boob job to my list of things that make me feel sexy.
What makes you feel sexy?
