Three Little monkeys jumping on the couch!

Can you guess who these kids are??
I'll give you a of them is Bradley.

Ok, this is where the random comes in.
You know how there are things we wish we could do but just can't?
Well, for one, I wish I could sing.
I'm completely tone deaf.
The funny thing about singing is when I'm rockin' out in the shower or car I think I sound like I should be on American Idol.
Thank goodness for my own sake I know better.

The second thing I wish I could be in photogenic. I always look so bad in pics.
I don't know what my problem is...
when Bill says "Maisy, I love that picture of you!" I think to myself "is that guy blind?"
I'm not even kidding. That's what goes through my head.

Well...onto my story...phew...finally!!!!
Last night I was heading out to my sweet friend 's house.
( I would tell you who it is but then you would know who the kids are..hehe)
For some odd reason I started taking pics of myself.
I always have hope that my luck will turn and I just may get 1 pic that I love.
Well I FINALLY got it.
Below is that photo.

Now, I know you are thinking to yourself...
"wow you think I really want to see a picture of your mug?"
I know just admit it.....
It's OK.
I am just so excited. I didn't even like my wedding photos that much.
All my kids can whip on that amazing smile even when they have the flu.
I was not blessed with that gene.

Oh well...ya win some...ya lose some. That's just life~

Okay, first of all, you take a beautiful picture!!! So pretty! Don't ever second guess yourself again!! And my father was completely tone death as well and he thought he could sing good also! My mother has a beautiful voice. She was once the soloist for the Revialtime Choir. And my father always wanted to sing duets with her until she finally put her foot down because he was forever throwing her off. You know what? My dad went to heaven last year and I like to think he's the soloist up in the choir!!

You make me laugh!! :)
I love the new photo of you :) It's amazing how critical we can be of ourselves, isn't it?!

I feel your pain! I hate how I look in photos! I think you are crazy though cause you have so many cute photos on facebook! Your adorable Amy! And it looks like you spent a little time with Kasey and her kiddos! Am I right? You know how I could tell? By recognizing her house in the background.

Just be happy! said...

I think you look absolutely FABULOUS in this picture, but I think you have other gorgeous pictures on facebook too! (I agree with the comment above)
Have a wonderful week Amy!!!

GREAT photo of you, friend!
And the joyful noise is what's most important, not the tone......God has ears for your voice, too! Keep singing!:)

Well aren't you a cutie! That's a fabulous pic of you! I feel absolutely the same way - I just don't take a good picture! Jacob is as photogenic as they come - me not so much. And singing - same thing - thank goodness the car doesn't have a PA system, that's all that I can say....Robyn

ok, thats it. i'm moving to the chi-town 'burbs and coming to hang out with you and Kasey. seriously. we would have so much fun sipping wine, shopping and laughing together...!!! And our kiddos would just have the best time.

I think you and Kasey need to come to So.Cal and visit Tara, Allegra and I. Tricia...COME TOO!! We'll visit you, next!

Bill Deitch said...

Cut the C**p. You are HHHHHHHHHot.

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

You are beautiful and that is a great pic of you!! I know what you mean about the kids. My girls can flash a perfect smile so fast, you don't even know where it came from. Now for me, I take 47 pictures of myself and then delete 46 of them. lol

The Kramer Angle said...

I just love your honesty! And I think you look beautiful in your photo!

Kasey said...

Jill -Forever and Ever House said...

You have such a sparkle in your eyes and a genuine smile in this photo. Lovely!

LuLu & Co. said...

You are too cute you are so funny! I love that photo of you!!!
and the monkeys sure look like they were having fun!!

Sheila R said...

Love your picture... your are beautiful! I too feel the same way, but now as I am getting older I am looking into these pictures and wondering when I aged so much as I still feel young. Keep sing and taking pictures of yourself!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

That's a beautiful photo of you - you look great!!!

Jeanneoli said...

That is so funny that you don't like your pics because there are so many beautiful ones of you on facebook. This is a beautiful picture of you though!

the wild raspberry said...

and if singing makes you happy, you should just belt it out :)

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

Great picture!!!

Katie said...

You are very beautiful!! I want to see those wedding pictures- [please post them!

Sandi said...

What a great photo !! I don't like my pix taken either and there are probably a lot of us like that out there. LOL
Lovely dishes! I think my sister had or has a set just exactly like these and she wanted to get rid of them. However she lives in PA so I doubt these were hers...but you just never know. :)
Blessings today!!

Christina said...

I think you are very photogenic. That is a great picture!! I'm not--either my eyes are closes--or crossed or my hair is in my face.

Hope you have a great Monday! I'm so behind on everything--including blogging and reading blogs!
