Monday Mugs

It is Monday, but it feels a whole lot more like Wednesday around here. Poor Daddy has been working, working, working and hasn't had a day off in a while. So this weekend felt nothing like a weekend, and today feels nothing like a Monday (which perhaps isn't a terrible thing). Only because I love Heather from Oswald Cuties am I linking up today for Monday Mugs. It is one of my least favorite themes, but I will run with it. If nothing else you will all get a good laugh, right? This weeks theme is....

Self Portrait


I tend to photograph terribly... because I make crazy faces...


Like this... my excited face....



I also have a habit of making it EXTREMELY obvious that my left ear is noticeably bigger than my right but wearing my hair up ...


If that isn't the case I somehow distort my body and make myself look 4 times wider than I really am....


Or I smile all crazy and show my horribly yellow teeth to the world...


Then, of course, I take pictures like this where you can see up my nose.... because we all know how attractive that is....

A lot of the time I get caught mid sentence and look like a goof.....

yeah, that happens a lot.... oh, and might I add that my hubby changed THIS to my profile picture on Facebook... if you feel the need to leave him some hate mail comments, I totally understand.


What happens when you get an awesome photographer for your bridal portraits????


You get a picture that looks beautiful, but nothing like you really.


And there you have it. My self portraits. I hope all you folks who wanted to see pictures of me feel fulfilled now (insert sarcasm and laughter here). I am totally ok with the fact that I am anything but photogenic. Happy Monday bloggy buddies! Have a great week!

How can I say this nicely?

You're wrong.

There. I said it. Sorry, but I happen to think you *are* photogenic and love all those expressions!

And that is an amazing bridal shot!

I'm visiting from Heather's blog. I love your self-portraits and sense of humor. Your wedding picture is really pretty. Your wedding dress is similiar to my daughter-in-law's dress. I enjoyed the little peek into your world.

All beautiful pics! :) And man, do you look young in your bridal pic. That must be what people think when they see mine too. (I was young, only 20).

Hey, I love the new blog look. It is great!

Enjoy your afternoon!
