Picture Day

Tomorrow is picture day. Great. I haven't had a "picture day" since high school. It's been so long that I've forgotten what I'm supposed to do. Just sit there and look pretty? Well, as you can see from these two pictures I've posted, I AM quite the looker. But I find it strange that the only person who comments on just how beautiful I am is Grandma--hey, and she wasn't even wearing her glasses when she said that. I must really have knocked her spectacles off with my incredibly good looks.

I work at an elementary school, right? So, staff gets a free packet of pictures...of themselves. What the heck am I supposed to do with pictures of myself?? Despite what you may think, I'm not the type to frame a picture of myself and set it on the nightstand next to my bed so that it's the last thing I see before I go to sleep and the first thing I see when I wake up. One can only view so much beauty during the day, so I need a break from my flawless face, just to keep me grounded...that's why I will not frame a picture of myself and put it next to MY bed. But, there is a guest room in our home and I think I will frame this old picture of me (the one where I'm wearing a super stylish hat) and put it next to that bed. I'm sure this picture would give the guests pleasant dreams.

Now, as to what to do with the pictures I take tomorrow--of course, my coworkers are helpful--both of them told me to hand out my pictures to guys. Umm...yeah...fantastic idea! My response to that? "Okay. On the back of the picture it'll say Hi, I'm Single. Nice to meet you." And just by seeing my beautiful face the guys will be like, How in the world is this gorgeous woman still single? Oh, and in fine print her picture says "Best country line dancer"? I CANNOT pass her up!

I hope my picture tomorrow turns out as stunning out these two. But, I'm just not sure I can top these pictures--I had a brilliant smile, good hair, and my body is not in an awkward position...at all. I'm just not sure I will be able to pull that off again. Wish me luck that I can look as good tomorrow as I did in these. It would mean a lot. Hey, maybe I'll even send you one of my pictures for supporting me (I am going to have like, 50, so I could even send one to your grandma). Wouldn't you just love that? And I know the perfect place for it: on your nightstand. That way you could have a natural night light--from the glow that I radiate--my picture would just brighten your day or night.


  1. You should totally send one to my grandma. With no note or explanation or return address. That would be hilarious.

    In fact, send one to grandma's all over the globe. Just because.

  2. Actually, do include a note, just say

    "For your nightstand"

  3. Love it. Send me your grandma's address and I'll send her a picture of me that says "For your nightstand". That's the funniest thing I've heard (or read) all day.

    Maybe I'll just send the pictures to random addresses (doesn't have to be grandmas) with the nightstand caption. Heck, maybe I could even ruin some relationships that way! Your suggestions are always appreciated. :)

    (I'll let you know if I actually do send my pictures, or if I just stuff 'em in a drawer somewhere.)

  4. Oh, that's awesome! Love it! Tweeting out your post.


  5. Stopping by from Tuesdays Gone. Cute post!

    I understand what you mean about the free picture packet. As a classroom aide for the past two years, I've also gotten free pictures of myself. My husband has insisted on framing them and hanging them on the wall. I put my foot down when he tried to hang them with the girls' school pictures, though! Hey, if I have to see my ugly school pictures hanging up, I at least get a place of honor! LOL

    I graduated with my teaching degree on Friday and am just waiting to get the professional pictures in the mail so I can replace the ones on my wall. Replace? No, I meant add, hubby of mine, I swear!

  6. Just found your blog through the Hop a little Tuesday. Am now browsing through your blog, loving your posts! This is hilarious (sorry, I don't mean to laugh at your pics above--they're so dang beautiful).
    Anyways, just want to let you know, that with a face like that, how can I not be your follower? Luv ya, girl!


  7. You never fail to make me laugh! I love it. I always wondered what the teachers do with their pics. I wish I had some hilariously funny and educating ideas, but I draw a total blank! Aside from using them for target practice or your grandma idea or the drawer idea, you've got me stumped. I'm sure when you figure it out, it will be the ultimate "crowning moment." Thanks so much for joining my hop.


Thank you for reading and have yourself a great day. Or night. Whatever.
