Week 49 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans

I've accepted Carin's challenge, as a Mom, to get back into the picture. The idea is that once a week you take a picture of yourself. Give the camera to your hubby, the kids, the grocer. Who cares? Just pass it off and say, "Cheese." It's that simple. If you'd like you can post your picture on your blog. You can let me know you posted so I can check out your pics. You can check out my previous weeks or Click the button below to add your name to the Linky and take a look at all the others. If you want start fresh for 2010, Carin has a new challenge, "Shoot Me!" Check it out on her blog at Forever in Blue Jeans.

Looking at the old camera card there are no good pictures of me this week.  Kat, there is the answer to your question from a few weeks ago.  I can take plenty of lousy pictures!  Here look for yourself.  Allen took this one at the zoo.  I think I must have blinked.

And then there is this one he took while Elisabeth was "helping" me with Aedan's quilt.  Of course I was in my nightgown.  Why do men always take your picture when you have no makeup on or you are in your nightgown?  Don't answer that.  I know it is the same reason that the first time I dyed my hair, it took my sister to mention it weeks later before Allen noticed I had gone from being a burnette to a red head.  Men do not notice details.
One night when I was dressing to go out, the girls were digging through my closet and found my wedding dress.  They begged me to try it on to see if it would fit.  Amazingly enough, if I didn't breathe it did zip up. 

I am nearing the end of 52 weeks and can not tell you enough... what a blessing it has been.  Get out there and grab a kid, a friend, that hubby of yours and get in the picture!



  1. you look gorgeous in your wedding dress! congrats! you are almost there - three more pics to go! ^___^

  2. Nice that you are showing off the real you ;). I am very impressed that you can fit in your wedding dress. I got down to 10 lbs less than what I weighed at my wedding and it still didn't zip. You look beautful in it!

  3. Aw, look at you. Beautiful as always and fitting in your wedding dress, good for you! And I just adore the way Elisabeth is looking up to you, so sweet! Great job, you are almost at a year!

  4. You look beautiful in your dress. Great that you can fit into it too.

  5. I love seeing your pictures! Hope things are going well for you. I miss seeing you around, but know you have your hands full with homeschooling all those precious ones! I remember those days well...I miss them. I miss my kids all being under foot! My heart leaps on days like yesterday when my grandbaby dropped by and came running through the house past "everyone else" into my arms saying, "NANA, NANA, NANA."

    Blessings, hugs, and prayers,

  6. Your dress was very pretty. I am happy to say that if I tried on my wedding dress from 2 years ago it would be too big! lol
