smile and say 'cheesy!', or thank the lord i washed my face yesterday

The lovely, illustrious, mistress of verbosity ChurchPunkMom tagged me this morning for a supersweet, come-as-you-are meme. And seeing as how I play well with others (being snowed in with the shorties, and aggressively ignoring the vacuuming has nothing to do with it, really)... I am playing along immediately. Because that's in the rules, that's why. And also, I loves me some embellished truth, and also fiction, whether it be polite or impolite.

I give you Da Rulez. (That's pronounced rool-ehz. It's French or Iowan for rules.)
  1. Take a picture of yourself.. riiiiiight.. NOW!
  2. DO NOT change your clothes. DO NOT fix your hair.. Just take a picture. (It's like come as you are day, back in high school.. remember?)
  3. Post that picture with NO editing.
  4. Post these instructions with your picture.
  5. Tag 10 people to do this!
Here I am, sitting at my computer, drinking coffee. Notice the smile. Smiling in the AM = coffee consumption. Other possible causes of AM smiling: Donuts or pastries of any kind; coffee; peace and quiet; coffee; coffee; sunny days; coffee; being generally up to no good; caffeine.

And now for the tagging:
Danae at Beauty In Distress
Julia at Java, Literally
Stephanie at Led By The Shepherd
MainStreetMom at Team Dudgeon
Heidi at Battlemaiden Chronicles
Shelly at Desperately Seeking Shelly
Mary Anne at The Stiletto Mom
Jill at The Daniels Five
Joce at Tillaboro Orchard
Jess from New Momma's World

Go ye, and meme the world!


  1. if I looked that good when told "come as you are" I wouldn't bother with the creams and moisturizers and glosses and plucking

  2. You're so cute!!! Pretty eyes.

  3. you had an unfair advantage, you know that don't you? you're pregnant.. 'pregnant glow' and stuff.

    i ain't nobody's mistress.. verbosity is muh bitch! lol.. does that even make sense? probably not. not enough coffee today. heh.

    speaking of which, you know what makes me smile in the morning? a good night before.. if you know what i mean, *wink, wink*.. *nudge, nudge*.. oh, and coffee too..

    off to get some.... coffee, that is.

  4. You're pretty when you smile. I gave you an award for an early Christmas present. Here


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
