What not to wear and how to wear it all!

Or how to throw on layers and layers of clothes in record time to compete in the latest veto competition for MomDot's America's Next Top Blogger. I think my husband had more fun watching me take off the clothing though he did crack a smile watching me put everything on while my two youngest offered their "help" and ran around me in circles!

The challenge? To video ourselves putting on the following list of items and have the fastest time doing so:

  • 6 shirts
  • 6 pairs of socks
  • 1 pair of shoes/heels
  • 1 skirt
  • 2 jackets/coats
  • At least 3 accessories (hat, scarf, gloves, etc)
I only did one trial run--after two run-throughs I had worked up enough sweat for another shower! Madison was my videographer, George and Livi were wardrobe and Robert Schneider ("Boom Boom" from Robbert Bobbert & The Bubble Machine) provided the fun background music. Here's my video, and though I didn't win (just couldn't beat that Dore--she had me by about 20 seconds) I had a really great time!

To watch all five videos (the winning one is Dore, fourth one down), click here. By the way, don't you think this is a perfect that's hot! thursday post? Nothing like watching five women getting dressed from start to finish!) --Emily

Not sure our home is fun but it is crazy! I was pretty out of breath by that time. The socks were definitely the hardest part. Should have used my ankle gym socks. Much easier! :)
