Habitat, or "I'm not used to not looking awesome" (kidding!)

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, and it was awesome! I've always wanted to do it.

The team was working on a set of 4 houses in a neighborhood that they had been working within for the past year. The houses were all in different stages of completion, which meant plenty of varied and interesting tasks for us!





And me? So stylish!






The question of what to wear came to mind, since I really haven't, umm, gotten dirty at all in a few years. To my chagrin, my oldest jeans were a bit too tight, but I squeezed into them for the day. I figured I wasn't going to be doing much sitting anyways, and I could stand up in them with only slight discomfort.

Also, I've probably bought a pair of work gloves 20 times in my life - I buy them for the project I'm volunteering for, then put them in a drawer, then forget about them, then find them and decide to recycle/donate them because I haven't used them in years, only to need them for another project the next month. So, I'm hanging on to the ones I bought this time!

I felt really good (but really sore!) at the end of the day. But it was so worth it!
