I’m Jennifer. I’m a preschool teacher turned stay-at-home-mom. I spend my days drinking coffee, cussing out the laundry, and taking care of my three kids. I know it sounds like a pretty easy gig, but anyone with the same stay-at-home title knows it’s not all rainbows and kittens.
I’m married to one hell of a guy named Dan. No – I mean it. One HELL of a guy. He works hard, loves his family, and for reasons unknown to me – he loves my permanent Resting Bitch Face and relentless sarcasm.
Over the years, I have tirelessly tried to find that magical side hustle that all the moms talk about. You know – “My sister in law has a bestie who works for a super rich lawyer as a personal assistant. She gets to stay at home all day and answer e-mails in her PJ’s!” or “I make enough ‘play’ money by just selling scented candles and leggings direct!” or “A good friend of mine started a niche blog about ways to save money traveling to Disney!” *Insert eye roll here* Guess what? THERE IS NO MAGICAL SIDE HUSTLE. Not for the average SAHM. Nope. Those sister in law besties and good friends of yours are the magical side hustle exception. I don’t have an extra $1,250 to start my LuLaRoe journey and I certainly don’t know any rich lawyers who need the help of me and my PJ’s. Though my web traffic expectations are pretty low, I GUESS this is a niche blog. And my niche is to bitch.
So, What’s With the Site Name?
If you’ve stumbled across my humble blog and expect to read advice from a self-proclaimed fashionista who breathes new life into “Yesterday’s Looks” – you’re going to be pretty disappointed.
I Wore This Yesterday is a blog for anyone who has ever gotten out of bed from a sleepless night with the kids and put on yesterday’s clothes.
Shout out to the mamas who sport PJ pants and a robe at school drop off! Some of us have three kids, some of us have one. Some of us are married, some not. But we all have laundry, cooking, cleaning, chauffeuring kids, PTA meetings, school projects, potty training, play dates, sports events, stained carpets, grocery lists, and so, so much more!
SO – If you spent today in yesterday’s smudged makeup, surrounded by dirty diapers, art supplies, and unfolded laundry – this blog is for you.
