Return of the Trophy Wife

iKeith and I went to a party Saturday night at his office in Downtown Denver. It was a party to celebrate all of the sports apps* that they have completed this year. A fabulous little soirée with great food, an open bar and live music.

As soon as I found out about the party, and that iKeith wanted me to dress up...I started going through all my dresses and trying to figure out what to wear. I sent out tweets, emails and facebook messages asking what color shoes to wear and I didn't eat carbs for three days so that I'd look really good in my dress.

This would be a good time to tell you that iKeith didn't pick out his outfit until 10 minutes before we were supposed to leave the apartment and this made us 20 minutes late.

On Saturday afternoon, as I was getting ready for the party, I realized that I've kind of let myself go. I can clean up pretty well for an outing with the kids or to go to Target but this level of attention had not been attempted in a while.  It took me a long time to shave my legs and I think I plugged the shower drain.  It's possible that this kind of thing should be done more than every six months. 

I also needed to paint my toe nails since I'd be wearing open toed shoes....but first I had to scrape off a 6 month old pink flower that had been painted on my toe nails the last time I got a pedicure.

My hair....I colored it myself and all the grey did not get covered up.  I hoped for soft lighting and drunk party guests that wouldn't notice.

I really needed a brow shaping but I ran out of time.

All in all, my transformation from Stay at Home Mom to Trophy Wife took 2.5 hours and 2  glasses of wine.

I really shouldn't have worried because no one noticed my grey hair, eyebrows or the fact that I'd shaved my legs because the only thing people looked at was my giant boobs!

There was one guy....I'm not sure how much he'd had to drink...but he thought I was from California and was obviously smitten with me. Or my (*)(*).

All of this made me realize that I should be spending a little more time on my general high maintenance, because I really do believe that iKeith deserves the Trophy Wife that he married. 

*This onethis one, and this one,  and this one.

Disclaimer: I was not compensated by Victoria Secret for mentioning their store. My husband just likes my chest.


  1. Woo... check you out! Must have felt great to get all done up for the night! Sounds like you had a great time!

  2. You look hawt! I should totally get my feet done more often, but I don't have the funds.

  3. LOL! You are the perfect trophy wife.

  4. Wow, you really look amazing. Love your hair and dress. My only complaint is that you created mass confusion in my peabrain because you used the same asterisk up top when mentioning apps as you did to signify your nippies. By the time I got down to the bottom of the post and clicked on the links, I was expecting shots of either your trophy-wife-ness or shots of your young and relentless boobage. Again, I remind you of the peabrain and say the fault was mine. And you do look hawt.

  5. Okay, the pattern on the dress and your ginormous boobs are like making a weird optical illusion and my head is spinning. :) Nice rack. lol

  6. You Looked Marvelous! Glad you had a good night with iKeith!!

  7. You look stunning, Connie. You really do. I owe you an email, girlie... xoxoxo

  8. How fun, I love the dress! You look fabulous. The last time I had to dress up for a work function with my husband was about 10 years ago, how sad is that?!

  9. Yeaaa for a hubby that loves your boobies!!! :o) You look wonderful ... total trophy wife but one with brains and class. :o)

  10. leg hair clogging up the drain... awesome! :) Its the things of being a woman that can make other women laugh! :)

    You look HOT lady! I'm sure your husband was proud to have you on his arm!!!

  11. You are rocking that dress!!

    I love your disclaimer!! :)

  12. I love that dress! Love it!!!! Please email me and tell me where you got it. Please? I'm in another state, so we probably won't run into each other at the same party.

    You look fabulous! Just gorgeous. :)

  13. I told you on twitter that I LOVED your dress and that you looked like a HOT SEXY MAMA!!!!!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
