Where's Mom?! 22/52 Photos of ME!

Are YOU a mom? Are YOU missing from the pictures? Most moms I know are, but here is a fun meme that brings us moms out from behind the camera and puts us into the spotlight! Carin over at Forever In Blue Jeans is the hostess for this year long picture project! It is lots of fun, and just think after 52 weeks there will be at least 52 pictures of YOU in them! It can be scary, but com'on, give it a try! It's easy, all you have to do is hand over the camera and smile (or not, it's completely up to you!). And the best part is, you can jump in whenever; for me this will be my 22nd week!

So this lovely series of photos was taken of me one night, courtesy of Actress from the gang at He & Me + 3. I still haven't posted about all that we did on our vacation in Michigan, but am slowly getting to it! While looking for a picture of Me for today's where's Mom meme, I came across these and laughed aloud! I first have to tell you that I have 2 boys, as you know, so when Model and Actress asked if I wanted a make-over I was quick to say...uuummmm...YES! I was so excited because my boys' idea of a massage is to wrestle me to the floor and kick me in the back!!!
So I sat down in the chair and the make-over began! I had more make up applied than EVER, and that is a lot considering I used to dance and the make up I wore for performances!

Here I am getting sprinkled with glitter dust!!! I had it everywhere....in my hair...on my face, arms, feet, hands,...they even were sprinkling it over my clothes; let's just say that I was waking up with glitter on my pillow for days afterward!


Brendan and Stunt Man sure did give a GREAT foot message...aaahhhh.....


I got the full treatment that night, make-up, hair, glitter dust, foot & hand massages, arm tattoos....yes I felt like a million bucks; well OK maybe not a million bucks, but is sure was fun to get pampered, even by 4, 8, & 9 year olds!

Now it's your turn to join the fun! It's easy, hand the camera over, smile and say cheese!

Oh my gosh, that is sooo cute! I was laughing when you said about them kicking you in the back!! LOL! Boys are wired so differently, aren't they? How nice to have been pampered!

You are such a pretty lady anyway, but adding glitter, just makes everything/one even prettier. :)

Lucky you, to be so pampered. :) Plucky, too, to let them do it! I'm not sure I would have been so brave...

Jane Anne said...

This "my boys' idea of a massage is to wrestle me to the floor and kick me in the back" is true at my house, too. Thanks for that one- it made me feel not so alone!

Fantastic pictures! Now, I am going to have to convince my boys to give me a foot massage. I think I'll wait on letting them apply my make-up, though!

Sneaky Momma said...

Looks like you were quite the pampered princess! :) Can't wait until my girls are old enough to do that!

Stacy said...

Looks like they gave you the complete package:)

Darcie said...

No matter the age of those doing the pampering...it feels great to be pampered! Love the pictures!!!

Mocha Momma said...

Oooh, momma, you're lookin' GOOOOD!

I know the kids loved doing that and they are so serious about it. They don't want you to wash it off either. They are usually quite proud of their work too. I've been there.

Hey, we couldn't survive around here without ferries and huge bridges. Ferries are fun to ride.

There are so many islands around here and people love living on them to get away from the city. I don't think we could afford it though. It's outragiously expensive to ride them.

Your boys would love to ride them.

Take care,
Nannette
