Why the Apron Goddesses?

So, there I was standing in front of the stove being splattered by bacon grease at Thanksgiving. My clean clothes were being infected with tiny spots of animal fat, the kind of stains that were not going to come out in the wash. Being the ever pragmatist, I grabbed a white sheet from the closet and tied it around my middle. Now I looked like a really drunken Grecian with a bad toga, but my clothes were going to stay clean.

What I really needed was an APRON!


Shucking aside my womens liberation attitude for just a second, I could see the sensibility of donning the antique and often disparaging wardrobe of a 1950's house wife. They weren't stupid you know. So I ordered an apron on line that day. I don't feel like I have given up in my plight for equality. I am just embracing what is sensible and now so pretty and fun. If you have not noticed lately, aprons are not what they used to be...

DO YOU HAVE AN APRON? DO YOU WANT TO SHARE YOUR STORY AND PICTURE?

Just send me a one paragraph note describing your Apron Goddess attitude and a photo of you IN YOUR APRON and I will post one apron wearing woman a day. If you send in your picture you get to be the Apron Goddess for the day and have a link back to your blog (if you have one, but not required). As a modern woman I want to reclaim my right to be pretty, sensible, fun, clean and maybe even hot. (NO naked pictures please. This is a family site!!! Sorry Boys...) Regardless of your shape, size or age you are welcome and encouraged to show your goods here. All ladies are welcome to join in the fun.

APRON GODDESS CONTEST: Weekly random drawings for a new designer apron are to occur starting Mondays and closing Fridays. To be included in the drawing all you have to do is comment after the posts.

AND TO ALL YOU MEN OUT THERE: Your job is to buy lovely aprons for your ladies so they can feel good while cooking, and NOT like indentured servants!

I need them. I am forever finding myself (usualy at some social event with perfect mommies everywhere) looking down at my shirt and seeing stains I had no idea where there. I just made more sense to do the apron thing as opposed to the new wardrobe thing. Then I figured out it could be like shoe and woo hoo I was off to the races. My hubby likes it too.. he can't figure out why.. I think you did though.. in some small way he thinks this is the start of remaking me into the 50's wife and one day he'll come home and find me with a high ball and his slippers in hand ready to pamper him... HA!

Oh my heavens to cupcake, I feel like someone just slapped me upside the head and said it was Christmas 365 days a year. I was JUST thinking about my apron addiction a couple days ago and how I wondered if anyone else was dealing with the same restless need to buy and wear pretty aprons. Finding this blog made my day! Picture of me in apron to follow...

YESSSSSSS!!!
