Self Portrait Sunday #7

Come on, admit it, you look through your photo albums or computer folders and see very few photos of yourself. Maybe it is because, like me, you are usually behind the camera. Or maybe, it's because you never feel you look good in photos so you tell everyone, "don't take any of me."

Join me, putting up your self portrait shots every Sunday. There is only one rule. Link back to me so I can come visit you. I would really love seeing some participants so come and play.

This week, I snapped some while the kids were busy. Here is am with my double chinny, chin, chin. But notice the staged happiness on my face. Oh, check out the pin, my daughter made that at school this past mother's day. My son made one in green. I switch off every couple of days.

The hair is down now, but still the same day. I don't know you about you people but my hair up hurts after a while. caught me! Reading a book during the day. While the kids play near by. Hahahah...nope totally staged. I pushed, the timer button and jumped on the couch with the book. I do however, look very relaxed. The kids were shoved out of the way on my way over so they wouldn't' be in the frame this week. After all, it is a self portrait meme.


  1. Great shots - NO double chin, you look terrific!! You should take time to read during the day, you deserve a break, if the kids would let you. I love gifts that the kids make me - one of my favs is a Christmas pin of Rudolph that my youngest made me from grade school, I wear it every year. Yea, my hair hurts after being up after a while - I keep switching it during the day.

    Have a great week!!

  2. My hair hurts after it's up a while, too. Great pics. I can't find any pics of me worthy of being on my blog, but I will join you if I find a starter.

  3. Lorie, Ahhhh...thanks...yes drawing attention to my chin was of course my intention. Not! Thanks so much for you oh too kind comments. Waiting for some people to come join me. Come on, you and Bill need to jump on in.

    Aren't those pins the cutest? I would hate for anything to happen to them. I hope to wear them to their high school graduation at least.

    So glad to hear that it isn't just me with the achy scalp. I put my hair in a pony tail or up and the pain kills me. I know I have a lot of hair but really!

    Blp3, You are worthy! You are worthy!!!!! Join me. I would love to see your face in a self portrait and you will feel so liberated. Come on do it.
