I think everyone desires a little bit of simplicity in their everyday world. I know I do. I love a clean house. Everything in its place, looking nice and clean. And yet my house is one constant mess. As I type this I look at my desk and I have a cereal bowl, glass, christmas ornament, hair brush, lotion, cell phone, three different calendars, and dog leash.....I could go on, but I am embarrassing myself.

So I start each day with these great plans to clean the house. Put everything in its spot, and clean, clean, clean. However my day doesn't usually goes as I plan. I usually work, then have a million other things to do. But my plans and ideas are great!

Thinking about being simple. I desire the samething for my appearance. I love looking clean and put together. The clean part I always have undercontrol. The put together part....not so much.

See I don't like to blow dry my hair. However my hair is this giant frizz ball since having kids, and needs attention. A lot of attention. And that requires time. Which I don't have, and even if I did, I don't want to devote!

Makeup is usually nicely done. But I only wear mascara, so I can't act like I'm doing a super job.

Clothes. I live in jeans and t-shirts. On the rare occasion that I go out, I dress up, but I can't seem to find that perfect balance of cute t-shirt and jeans. You know the one I'm talking about, the kind of simple jeans and shirts the models or actresses wear and look totally chic. Yeah, I can't pull that off.

Where am I going with this post? I have no idea. I usually have these feelings after I go to a school function and see all of the cute moms, or I go to someones house and see how totally perfect it looks.

I guess its something to desire....a goal if you shoot for.

The only way I am going to get that type of simplicity in my life is going to be with a maid and a full-time stylist.
