Hello, world . . . it's me again!

*Edited

So, obviously - I've having an issue with keeping up lately!? I'm working on this pirate party and I really think it has gotten me behind on everything {or at least I'm going to blame it for the slackness that I've been battling with lately!} It's over on Saturday evening . . . . so then what am I going to blame it on?!

Well, Tuesday we had a blast with the photos . . .


This kid made the FUNNIEST faces through out her entire shoot! Every time Krista would put the camera to her face - Emsley would work it! Now, how she is working it is questionable - but she is Workin' IT!


This is definitely her personality! I love pictures like these . . . It's a good thing, because we rarely {if ever} get the perfect smiley pics! Thanks Krista! I'm lovin' what I'm seeing so far!

And since the "do" changed {yet again}, I had a few {thousand - haha} pictures taken.


This is all she sent me so far - so it's my fav-O-rite one {so far!} I must admit that I never wear green - normally gives me this horrible washed out look. But I love this jewel tone color so much, so we tried it. I'm shocked! I have a very distinctive eye color. And this shirt looks great with them! This will be a sad comment, but I limit myself to the colors I wear because of my eyes. Remember, I'm vain! I try to only wear colors that work with them! I really don't have the best facial features and my skin is HORRIBLE! So, I try to keep the focus on my eyes.

Well, I've got to go to the grocery store. For this Part-eee! My husband is gone again - did I tell you all that already? My mother-in-law is here to watch my sleeping kids so I can go . . . .

. . . . . I haven't even made a list yet!

* Krista posted a comment about my skin - SHE is CRAZY! Many years of dermatologist visits and this is what I ended up with! I've always thought I look just like one of my parents, but as I age I see more of the other one {in my face} - so I'm trying to deflect that! That is what I mean about the features!

I just love seeing pics that Krista Lee takes ;)! I love the second one of your little gal and the one of you is AMAZING ;)!

What great photos. Take advantage of Emsley at this age. Before you know it, she'll start posing. My daughter thought she was hot stuff and did this funny head tilt combined with a fake smile. She reminded me of those glamour shots.

Enjoy your "me" time.

Krista Lee said...

Ummmm... You? Bad skin and "bad facial features"??? Whatever!! I was thinking as I was looking at your photos how great your skin always looks, and how you have ZERO wrinkles, zero sun damage.... Don't be ridiculous! :)

Jenna said...

You are a beautiful girl , so pretty , and your daughters photos are so sweet , cherish those funny little faces she makes , she is such a cutie, when my youngest was that age photo shoots just made her appear fearful , that was because she was fearful , thankfully she grew out of that .

By the way...your skin looks gorgeous!

Great shots, love that shirt with your eyes, I have the same in a violet color. Never underestimate the power of a woman at any age.

Love Krista Lee's photos and Emsley is beautiful! I would JUST DIE to have skin like yours! Ella's eyes are still blue right now and I SO hope they stay that way. I guess time will tell . . .

Julie said...

You are just way to cute! almost as cute as your baby girl. I love those photos - they are fab.
I'm still loving your haircut too!

Kimberly said...

Wow! Beautiful pictures. (ALL of them!) And I love the one of Emsley with my favorite flower! :P

Kimberly said...

OMG, I just went to Krista Lee's website and found more! I really like how the one with her painting turned out. And that face plant to the floor CRACKS me up!!!

Melissa Santanastasio said...

what great faces!!!

Emsley is ADORABLE. We rarely get the perfect smiley ones either, but I think they end up being more my favorite because they are "real." Derek and I sweat and work so hard to get THE Christmas card picture. We decided we need to put the real picture on there...the crying, looking away, fussing kind of picture because that is what is real. Ha!

Love your eyes. I always thought blue eyes with brown/dark hair was the best combo. I don't know what you are talking about...your skin looks flawless!

joanne said...

Kim, you have the most beautiful features. I have always thought you should be an actress. You could so have your own sitcom like REBA! You are beautiful INSIDE-OUT, and your SKIN! Oh, what I would give... ;)

Beautiful pictures!!

Wendy said...

OMG you have the most beautiful children... Those pictures are great!

Stephanie said...

I think your eyes look PERFECT with that color shirt. You should wear it more often!
