Rise and Shine!
Here is a road trip tip for all the ladies attending Fall Breakaway.
Ever meet one of those girls that wake up pretty?
You know, their hair is in place, and no black under the eyes, even their PJ’s are wrinkle free. How do they do that? I personally think they get up before everyone else, fix their hair and face, then lay back down and waits for everyone to get up. I don’t know what they do, I am not one of them.
We (as in we don't wake up pretty) call her Snow White
These are the ladies that bounce out of bed throw open the curtains, flooding the room with overwhelming bright light, little birds rest on her shoulder and she welcomes the new day singing.
I relate to Cinderella, she was the princess that woke up late and had to hurry scurry to get things done.
Don’t get me started with Sleeping Beauty! Love her, hate her. First of all, who sleeps like that? and Second ooh-cha-cha handsome prince, true love’s kiss bada bing bada bang. You get my drift. (different post too)
So what’s the tip?
Unless you have one of the few king size rooms to yourself keep the "princess thang" on the down low. Princess say what?! That’s right, keep the bright and shiny morning rituals for home. Some of us aren’t 100% till the first sip of coffee, and then you might get a little sign of life by the walk to the bathroom.
Which also means no doing your make-up and your princess showers until everyone in the room has hit the toilet first.
I have back up on this
Proverbs 27:14 (msg) If you wake your friend in the early morning by shouting “Rise and shine!” It will sound to him more like a curse than a blessing.
So no throwing open the curtains! No camp style “Rise and Shine and give God the glory” song either. If you got all this energy here is what I suggest.
The Rosen Shingle Creek has a Coffee Shop. Go down and get your mates a Latte or a Cappacino and let the aroma of fresh coffee fill the room. They will love you!
It's not that we don't love you, Lord knows we do! How do you think we learned what to put on our eyes to reduce puffiness? You teach us pretty and we are so grateful.
Get the word out
If your like me, not the happiest camper in the morning you might want to review these things before the dreaded moment of “Rise and Shine.” Don't get me wrong I don't mind getting up, it just takes me awhile.
Okay now I’ve said it. You don’t have to. If your going to Fall Breakaway hit the "share" and let your girlfriends know up front. If you are Snow White, don't be ashamed of the God given ability to wake up pretty, post it too. It will help us Cinderella's sleep a little easier knowing you got the hint. Thanks from the bottom of my sleep crusted eyes. :)
