Yesterday was my birthday! I turned 33.
Here is what 33 looks like:
The other evening, after a very busy day and after the kids were in bed, my husband called for me to come downstairs. He had set up a his photography equipment and wanted to practice with his new stuff. I am terribly awkward in front of a camera, so even though I was exhausted and embarrassed, I let him take pictures of me. Over 100 of them. Only 4 were any good! Ha! Because when I get in front of a camera my cheeks quiver and my eyes glass over. In the above photo I was trying to cross my eyes. Uh, that didn't work but I liked the picture well enough. So I think the key to photographing me is to seriously distract me.
My birthday was really nice. Lots of family time. I got some great gifts. The kids got me a new nail polish. My mom and dad gave me money, and I hope to use it to buy a japanese maple tree to plant by my front porch.
Also, I bought my first wrinkle reducing product! It's an Oil of Olay facewash, and it makes my face feel sort of numb. Is that bad?
