I mentioned recently that I have started following "Married to the Military". I promise I am not going to be copying her all the time (although this does make the second time this week!) but today the theme (and challenge) she had chosen TOTALLY fit in with the picture of the day.
It made me laugh, so I had to link to her. Just read her page, and laugh with me.
This was the pre-chosen picture of the day.
My feet, in rainbow colored toe socks, which were bought (for Andy, by me) back in our Shorter College days. I love these socks.
They are full of memories: good times at college, reminders of my pre-kid, more time to just be a hippie self. (not that I would change anything... just reminiscing!) Even the hole in the bottom of the toe gives me JOY.
They are over 9 years old. How could I NOT love these socks?
The challenge called for a self-portrait. I think I post pictures of myself fairly often, and besides, pretty much everyone who reads my blog already knows me. So, I decided to go for something a little older, and definitely silly.
Last time Andy was deployed (Iraq that time!) my sisters made me up all fancy. They dressed me in their "Marilyn Monroe" dress, and did my hair and makeup. My brother-in-law did a whole photo shoot one afternoon, with multiple "coaches" helping out.
We tried to do the "spin and make the dress flair out" thing, like the movies and posters from the 50's.
This is pretty much my favorite picture of that -
I don't think that modeling is my calling!
Good thing that Andy already loves me!!
