You Might Have Run in the Sun Today If...
Your back looks like this when you put on a summer dress! Um, can you say TACKY?! I like to think of it as a sign of an athlete. Or of an Oregonian who doesn't ever see sunshine and burns easily! Next time, note to self: Sunblock!
- Yes, that is toothpaste on my mirror. Don't judge! I'm a busy mom. I have time to take pictures of myself in my mirror but for some reason I didn't even notice the dirty mirror until now. Just keeping it real. I'll wash it tomorrow when I clean bathrooms.
- I have very broad and bony shoulders if you have not already noticed. If I was a shape, I'd be a triangle with the pointy part down. Hey, I kind of look like the Ironman dude...no, not like the people that do Ironmans but the actual Ironman symbol. Yep that's me. Only, my arms are not quite as bulky. Check out my other self portrait:
- No, that isn't a feather in my wet hair. There is a lovely story behind that. It is actually taped up there on the mirror to remind to always "listen" to my kids and what they have to say to me. It is the remains of a leaf after the leaf part wore away and the vein part was all that remained (not sure the correct wording). Anyway, my 3 year old daughter was talking to me and trying to get my attention. I finally stopped to hear what she was saying and she looked up at me wide eyed and full of excitement and awe like she was seeing the world for the first time and said "Mommy! MOmmy! Look, it's a LEAF BONE!" We had just been learning about the skeletal system and she was connecting this to the insides of the leaf. I thought she was brilliant and reminded myself to never be too busy to truly listen!
20 miles tomorrow! Sloooow! Hoping that my groin can take it. I will remember to use sunblock this time.
What is the tackiest sunburn you've ever had?
P.S I'll remind you again I'm sure but I feel bad because all of you who entered in the the Kara Goucher book giveaway BEFORE the Big Blogger Crash of 2011, have to enter again because I lost all of your fabulous comments. All 70 comments...gone! There were some good comments on there too! This doesn't work well for a giveaway....I have a hard time remembering all of those comments!
