HAPPY FRIDAY! Holy Moly am I ever glad to see this day come! Regardless, it’s Friday and it’s the long weekend!! I hope that I find enough energy to get lots done with 3 whole days!

A while ago when I was at Mom and Dad’s looking through old pictures for the Wedding Wednesday series I couldn’t help but stop and laugh at one thing…I really didn’t like getting my picture taken.

In most of the pictures I had this very unhappy look or my face has a small smirk out of force.

The hand would be on the hip and I’d be glaring into the camera giving my mom tons of “attitude”. The impact of the “hand on hip” pose was sure to intimidate her to stop with the pictures!

Exhibit B:

Jared 6

Can you see the intense look?

Well, 9 years later and I’m still not overly fond of getting my picture taken. Those self full face portraits with my friends or hunny? No problem.

However, the pictures where people want you to stand there, by yourself, like some big loner, SUCK! It feels so awkward and unnatural!

When someone is insisting that I take a picture by myself. I usually try and pull someone closer to me! It just feels so much better with someone there with me. At that point, it’s not even that bad.

However, if they are insistent that they want a lovely portrait of me standing there alone (like a total loner!) I will resort to my old ways, hand on the hip and tons of attitude!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!



  1. Are those homemade dresses? LOL - I remember them - hope you kept them for your kids LOL - hahahahaha! I promise, I won't laugh when you put them in those dresses!

  2. Well the first one is a homemade dress that my mom made for me and a matching one for the doll. I think it's really sweet that she did that for me so of course I kept it!! I can't wait to put it on my daughter one day and tell her, her Grandma made that for me when I was a little girl. I'll be very proud! Have a great weekend.

  3. hahahaha tooooo funny! I think I was opposite, I loved having my photo taken but no one would take it. I would pose and everything.

  4. Better get used to pictures before your wedding day!

  6. You'd walk around all day while she shopped, and she made you try on countless slacks, sweaters, and hats. Can you probably achieve the same thing by adding some hard liquor to juice. Most sellers offer an impressive selection of sugar-free candies, in addition to the popular originals.
