Friday 'Sunday Self Portraits'

My friend, Cass, has a fun weekly meme that I used to always join in on, but, it seems lately (like the last few months), I keep on missing it. Oftentimes, I have even gone so far as to get cleaned up, put on MAKE-UP, made sure I had good lighting, like quoizel lighting, and have actually taken the picture! And then what? Well, I got busy doing stuff with the family, intending to post it in the evenings, and just wound up too tired or got home too late.

So today, on this lovely Friday, I'm going to post some Sunday Self Portraits. So there.

Now, this first one was taken on 8-26-07. You can click the 'SSP' graphic and go see all of the other Sunday Self Portraits from that day!

I decided on that Sunday to just take the pic 'as is', because , the day before I had gussied up for company that was coming over and for some pics I wanted to take in my cool Switch t-shirt. I was going to post the pic and tell you all about the great new soda called Switch on Saturday - and then on Sunday morning you would have the 'just me as I am on Sunday morning' picture. But you can see that my 'blogging plans' are not exactly happening as they should lately! (I can definitely see that - I have two pages full of things I want to blog about on my desk staring me down with evil eyes! I feel like I'm in Senior English again with Mrs. Whitley - and way, way behind! Ugh!) The 'Switch Soda post' is on the list and forthcoming...

My most currently behind Sunday Self Portrait is from last Sunday, September 2nd. Again, you can click on the graphic and see the lovely portraits of everyone else who participated last weekend.

This last weekend I spent the majority of my time crying. I miss my family in Dallas so much, and sometimes it just overwhelms me, and this weekend was one of those times. This picture was taken after my Sunday morning cry. I thought I might as well portray the truth and the reality of my life, instead of trying to cover it all up with glitz and glitter. I'm sure it would've looked horribly fake, anyway, as I'm not very good at 'hiding' my feelings. So under the mascara and the jewelry, you'd have seen something wrong - so I just decided to show it to you. And the funny thing is, I know that is not a flattering picture, I know that - but, still, there is something cute about it. Of course, my mother swears that my 'beautiful' second-born child wasn't really beautiful. My sweet, little red alien boy. God bless his little heart. Did anyone else give birth to an alien? I bet you thought he was beautiful, too, didn't you? Mean ol' Grandma! (I'll have to show you Shawn's hospital pictures one of these days. You might even back Grandma up!)

You know, I'm happy that I've done this. Way behind, way late, and I just don't care. I am so happy to have done it. I have been meaning to get back into this thing for months and months. There was one Sunday that we were going to the museum, so before we went I took pictures. I just keep doing that, and then not posting. So I'm glad I posted - even if it is Friday!

Who knows - maybe this week, I'll post my Sunday Self Portrait on Sunday. It could happen.
