embrace the camera: greasy morning face.

so i have a new blog,
that i'm pretty much infatuated with.
and she's beautiful,
talented, crafty, a mom, spiritual, stylish, everything.
everything i love.
she has a thing she does every thursday
called,
embrace the camera.
you can read about it here.
it's genius. it kinda makes me tear up.
but then again,
i'm hormonal this week.
so here's my first thursday entry.
please excuse my eye boogers
and gross greasy morning face.
this is what i look like 85% of the time.
(the other 13% is worse
and the last 2% is HOTNESS)
just ask all my neighbors.
so this is the face my kids will remember.
i want to document it.

i couldn't let that little penny squirt
get away without showing off his pretty blue eyes.
again,
don't look too closely at me.
gag.
it's for the kids and the memories.

now go read all about
and put her button on your page if you wanna do it!
come on,
it'll be fun!!
oh and while you're over there,
every bit of it is fabulous.
kinda like me.
*wink*

I need to go read this. I hate taking my picture, i don't even have the 2% hotness to buoy me up. More like .000002%, if I'm lucky. But someone told me once that I should make sure i get in pictures so my kids will see us together when they are older.

I love these pictures of you and your kids. You guys are always cute.

Andrea said...

Oh, emily...please don't take offense. I wasn't offended. I really was inspired. I just have my own issues, obviously. I am working towards my own lovelyness! I enjoyed your blog entry, think you are a delightful writer and would hate to give you the wrong impression of me. How about I set a goal to be camera embrace-able in 6 months! Your challenge will be my motivation. I am editting my post! Thanks!
