Beard yuk !!!!

So my daughters 21st is a themed party
The character I've chosen has a beard.
Not that I'm OTT, okay I am, but already can't wait to shave this furry beast off my chin.
No girl time until the 8th June for me :(

Hope you girls have it better than me until then.

Happy with new Hot Pink Bra

Just browsing the bra and undie shop when I noticed a 2 for 1 deal on push up bras.
While I have size 14 bras in black, white and beige, I don't have any hot pink.
The shop didn't have any size 14, and when I mentioned it was for me, the girl suggested I try on a 12 (I was in work shirt, cargo pants and steel toe capped boots). Okay, so a 12 left me with bra bumps where I didn't want bumps. I got home later and asked Miss 16 what size she was and which colour she prefers so she could get the 2nd bra.
I found another  outlet which had size 14, so I grabbed the hot pink for me and a hot pink for Miss 16. I also got inserts while there.
Getting home, I gave Miss 16 her bra and tried on mine with various tops, only to realize the inserts kept moving all over every time I moved my arms.
Miss 15 was feeling left out on my purchases, so I gave the inserts to her and she glowed at the thought of having bigger breasts.

While chatting to the girls, I learned the fashion with tights (leggings for you US girls) here currently is to have either a long top (never skirts) or alternatively show of your "vage". Shame really I like my micro mini skirts.

My outing for Thursday night to a restaurant and grocery shop on the way home, included me doing a super-tuck in the smallest, tightest girls undies I own so I can show off my "vage".
After dressing and a 15 minute makeup (my longest to date), I checked with wife and girls, the girls suggested darkening my eyebrows with eye shadow, not pencil, which I thought gave me a mono-brow (you decide). A big thank you to Miss 16, it's her top I'm wearing. I'm also wearing Avon makeup purchased from her, however probably for the last time as it leaves me looking "grey". Maybe they have a browner foundation & powder.
I took wifes car, had dinner, got some groceries, then while fully dressed and my clip on ear rings hurting, sat and watch "Inception" with wife and daughters.

All in all a good night.

Now some photos just for you
And hopefully next time I'll have a lace top to really show off :)

Hell weekend, ended with major PMS

So, Saturday, umm, Miss 16 school prom night.
Quick, run here buy that, then over there to buy this, race to hair stylist, race to makeup, attend pre-ball gathering, pick up at midnight, take to after prom party. So Saturday finished at about 3am Sunday.
I awaken 4 hours later, check photos of prom and found my new camera wasn't focusing and only 1 shot in 20 was acceptable, so back to the shop at 9am.
10 am dismantle new sports camera and try to located a new battery for it  - my only hours dressed pretty in pink top black bra and black sports leggings, made brunch for the late sleepers while still in girl mode.
Miss 20 is having her 21st in a few weeks, so it's back in to men's clothing, and out to buy brazier and patio heaters and check out marquees. Also completed the clothes washing for the week.

Anyway, while out doing my 3rd to last chore while wife was making a late dinner, got home to find she was out driving daughters friends home instead of making dinner for 4 hungry people. So where I was expecting a dinner when I got home, instead I got to wait. Had wife gone to do the heavy lifting chore, I would have told daughters friend to get her parents for once in the last 24 months to actually pick up their daughter, and dinner would have been on schedule.
Anyway, I took my frustrations out on my wonderful, but lazy arsed kids.

I really need some serious girl time !!!

Busy weeks, now overcompensating

Work has been hectic, yet luckily the extra hours I've put in to get the End of Month orders finished have been mostly from home where I can wear what I want. Yet I've been missing the public outings.
I've also been helping my wife with renovations as well as the normal duties with the kids.

It's just a few minutes past dawn, and in a few hours Miss 16 is on a school bus to the Tongariro National Park to do "The Crossing" a 20km hike in snowy conditions over a volcano. I have not, in the recent teen years, known her to walk more than 600 meters to school, so 20km will be something different for her. I always thought I would do the crossing years before her and even now wish I could go with her to look after her, plus I was trained to survive in such areas, but she reckons her "hot" maths teacher will look after her, I'm under the impression lots of girls will be fighting for a position directly behind him so they can watch his bum during the hike.

As East Auckland is a pain on busy days, I stopped at one of my local McDonalds, but found at 6.30am instead of the usual elderly, a whole lot of young males with high performance cars, and a couple of others who look like they had just come of the farm. Farm girl was bigger and scarier than farm boy - know who wares the pants in that family, anyway decided to do the extra miles to my regular McDonalds. The coffee girl was already making my order up as I made the trip from the ladies room to the counter. Anyway I digress, being in man land a bit long, this morning finds me in a shear see through top, shiny micro mini, leggings and over the knee slut boots for coffee and a trip to supermarket. While coffee was fine, walking around the supermarket in these boots is not advisable, very surprised I didn't faceplant and these boots will be in the bin before weeks end to ensure I'm not this silly again.

Miss 16 took my camera on the hike, so here I am trying to figure out how to drive the spare camera.
