You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile

So I don't know if I ever shared with you my obsession for all things Carol Burnett? I've always loved her and grew up watching her shows & movies. Especially Annie. While I was working as a CRM (community relations manager) at a little Barnes & Noble, often I would read at story time. I am a pretty shy and awkward person (in case you didn't know) and I was terrified to read allowed even to toddlers. Aside from a slight mix up where I said "rump" instead of "romp" it was a pretty positive experience. I also learned there will always be a mama with a latte who doesn't watch her child and lets said child mall the storyteller. Anywhoo back to the story at hand.. One day when I was reading to the kids, this older woman came by and randomly shouted " You Look just like Carol Burnett!". I stopped reading and everyone was silent. One of the mothers in the group then added, " Yes, you do- a younger one of course."

The last month I have been in a flare and the urge to stay in my yoga pants with heating pads strapped to every body part is very strong. But then I realized- I usually feel better when I look better. So today is the beginning of The Get Dressed Intuitive. I promise to get dressed every morning- regardless of how I am feeling. Hence the You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile. Somehow it all came together for me. With that, I give you a picture of me dressed and a picture of my heroine, Carol.

See a similarity?!

My goodness-you DO look like her! I too am in love with Carol Burnett and Annie. I was stage manager for our high school's first musical--Annie. Not too long ago I found the tape we were given with all the musical numbers. Now my girls are big Annie fans. This song is one of our favorites. Their other favorite is "It's a Hard Knock Life", which they love to sing while they clean their room. :)

I hope your initiative helps you out. :)
