Edited to say that the rules have been updated at the actual party post. I started thinking about it and liked the second set better. Bloggers prerogative? haha

Hey ladies!

Last Friday I shared with you about “Reality”; how it often gets lost in our quest to look like we have it all together. So, I decided to do a little experiment to see how many of you would be willing to share your reality for a day. To show us what’s really there before the camera snaps the gorgeous After. So here’s what you can do…if you’re up to the challenge (be brave girls!).

Next Friday, we’ll have our first “After & Before Party”. Yep, you read that correctly. After and Before. Here are the rules:

1. Compose a blog post about what your rooms look like before you start decrapifying or what they look like on any given day before you kick the crap out of the way and make your kids or husband move. 😉

2. Show us your After picture BEFORE your actual post.

3. Commiserate with at least two people around you. Get a good laugh at the fact that you aren’t alone in your mess (We know it’s not like that all the time. Life just has a habit of getting in the way sometimes – and that’s O.K.).

This is an opportunity to show what life is really like at your house; to let friends in even though there’s a mess sometimes; to let go of being self-conscious about it.

I’d really like a button for our After and Before party. Anyone know how to make one or can point me in the direction of a tutorial?

I’m really excited about this guys. I’ve been working on this idea all week and have already taken pictures of my pre-cleaning messy house. 😉  Get your blogs ready!
