everyone else is doing it...

Tuesday, September 15, 2009
so i'll have my the ego has landed moment.


here it is... the new moda bake shop ad.
that's me. top left.

i'm a brave girl to use my own picture... and not a project... i know.


the pioneer woman just published her first cookbook and blogged about it and getting the right cover pic....

it's not easy.


over the year's i've asked my brother to take a good pic of me.
and he's taken a lot.
but when we "plan" them... well lets just say often a mess is what we get.
{usually a laughing one}
i'm kinda a goofball... and ham it up a bit.


like this try...


or snaps like this...

or graduation pics... {my profile pic}



until this one.
we were at our cousin's wedding... and sitting waiting for food...
and brad said... "look this way"
i turned... he snapped...

and i don't hate it.
which is big...

because it was the first pic in years that i liked... and wasn't laughing...


so there you go.
my 15 minutes of fame.
in print.
;-)


side note {the pic isn't touched up.. cause that's the kinda gal i am. i don't wear makeup often... chapstick in the above pic.. and i'm ok with my flaws.. cause nobody's perfect.}

Great pictures...and congrats! How fun that the one you love best is just a casual shot your brother took!

Congratulations! You will definitely have more than 15 minutes of fame. It is a beautiful picture of you.

Congratulations :) I tend to like the candid shots of me too... I think once I think about the camera too much, it all goes pear-shaped.

I love it! I also love the fact that you are au naturale. I am the same way, chap stick only.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

great photo--I also have a hard time with getting my picture taken--the camera just doesn't like me!!!! I also go "natural" now--used to be a Mary Kay gal---but then along came an illness and not you get to see the al-natural look--but I have grown to like it and wouldn;t go back to the other "stuff" even if I could--so you are way ahead of me--keep stitching--hugs, just, Di

wishes, true and kind said...
