This or That? Tuesday {Week 1}

The Winey Mommy



So. Here we are. The very first week of 'This or That? Tuesday'!

I have to admit that I have butterflies in my stomach--like a nervouswillanyoneevenplay type of butterflies. I've had fun coming up with questions--at first I was thinking to myself what have I started?!  What if I can't come up with ANY questions?!?!

Then I laughed and reminded myself that I'm always full of questions. And this? Will be fun!


To play along simply copy and paste the scenario below and write out a post with your choice of 'This' or 'That' answer. Copy the button code into your post and then come back and link up on the linky! After you link up go and visit as many of the other link ups that you want--who knows, maybe you'll find a fabulous new blog to follow!

Here is this week's scenario:

You show up at a party of an acquaintance.  It's an evening party and you don't know very many people there. For whatever reason you decide to show up alone--and pray that your friends will indeed make it. 

Would you rather show up under dressed or over dressed?

My answer: I would MUCH rather show up under dressed. Seriously. For one I hate getting dressed up...and I always notice the people who just seem over dressed. Under dressed to me would be a cute pair of jeans, a casual top and a cute pair of shoes--preferably ballet shoes or my beloved flip flops. At least if I stick out I may as well be comfortable!

How fun! I like this idea...maybe it will get me out of my slump. I love your badge by the way...so cute! You are a quick learner!

Shell said...

I'm totally with you, girl. I'd much rather be underdressed than overdressed!

Danielle said...

I'm with ya. Underdressed; all the way.

I always laugh at people who overdressed. They look out of place. Big time.

Krystyn said...

I guess I would rather be slightly underdressed....but not like sweatpants under-dressed, more like nice shirt, jeans and cute shoes, right?

Homesick Cajun said...

I'm with you! Even if you're under dressed at least you're comfortable!!

Kristi said...

I would prefer to be a little bit over dressed, but nothing CRAZY or anything. Like a cute more casual type of dress and some awesome heels. And jewelry. Lol.

Of course, I say this as I am sitting here 33 weeks pregant feeling underdressed to me right now I feel like a big slob and little spring dresses are the ONLY thing that I feel cute in...so I might be a little biased in my answer.

Heather said...

I am the same way. I would much rather be under dressed.

♥Jacqueline♥ said...

Definitely a good idea! ;o)

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

I linked up! And I'm with you, I like being comfortable. Cute, but comfortable. Oh, and I can hardly wait to be able to wear flip flops again!!!

MiMi said...

I'm with you! At least if I'm gonna stick out I may as well be comfy!
And ballet flats always dress up an outfit, so hey, what do you have to lose?

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

This is a great question! I would rather be overdressed. You can always dress down if you are dressed over, but you can't dress up if you are dressed down...does that make sense?? Maybe it's past my bedtime...

Lin said...

This is going to be so much fun Chelle! I'm totally going to join in on the fun tomorrow while I'm at work :)

Kaz and Amy said...

I agree with you completely...I think too if you show up overdressed you tend to have a little more attention that slighly underdressed...u know? Love this! Have a great Tuesday!

The Mommyologist said...

This is such a cute idea Chelle! Tough question too...I honestly think I'd rather be overdressed! At least I'd look good, right?

Lisa Anne said...

I totally agree. I hate dressing up. Give me my jeans hoodie and flip flops and I'm there. If I have to dress up I really second guess as to whether or not I want to go. lol

Great new meme! (I just linked up.) And I'm right there with ya on the whole new meme, oh my gosh will anyone play thing. I started my Top 10 Tuesday last week, and I'm not getting any action at all. Do you know about the meme list at Our Mommyhood? You can add your to their directory and find some other great ones. Good luck!

Oh this is fun and so cute... I will try to play next week... but I'll give you my answer b/c I know you are just waiting on pins and needles!
I would rather be OVER dressed, then I would lie and say, I just came from "such and such", please excuse the fine threads ;)

G-Zell said...

Gurl my ass would be OVER dressed , HELLO I am hispanic! It is in the genes.. baby.. with my hoop earrings and high heels!

i would look at me haterz lol

Rebecca D said...

I love this idea.. is it only for today? Can I play tomorrow? I've already posted twice today...

Much More Than Mommy said...

Ooh! This is a cute idea! And I'm with you, I'd rather be underdressed -- besides, you can slip some accessories in your purse and dress up jeans any old time! ;-)

Lesli said...

definitely underdressed.. I hate to get dressed up, I am a tshirt and jeans kind of gal!!

blueviolet said...

I'd personally feel more comfortable underdressed!

The Pipster said...

Chelle, what a great turnout! I would definitely want to show up under dressed as I am the most comfortable when I am comfy. Thanks for telling me the funny story about Isabella. -Pippi

Messy Mommy said...

Totally forgot about this! But I would say over dressed

Tracie said...

I'd probably be over-dressed. I like wearing skirts and dresses but have little opportunity to do so these days.

Heather said...

Sorry, I totally forgot about this until it was too late. I'll definitely play along next week!

And I think I would choose overdressed. Because it seems like you can always do a little something to make yourself look more casual (take off jewelry or something) as opposed to dressing up flip flops. :)
