Blog Archives for category Pictures Owen Takes
Especially after my hair nightmare earlier this week. She definitely saw lots of breakage but thankfully my hairstyle hides it well.
And this is what it looks like when my hair is being dried and styled—since I have so much hair, my stylist grabs anyone else available to help. (I had the kids with me—and they had their iPhones since we were in Occoquan—so I texted Owen to take the picture.)
And look at what we found on the walk to the salon…
And testing a new lipstick when I got home.
Lularoe leggings, two sweaters from Marshall’s, necklace from Chico’s (birthday present from Marcia!), and boots from Amazon.
Grannie Lin and Papa sent these anniversary/birthday PJs—just in time! Love them!
And a size medium was pushing it.
I DID IT!! I finally reached my goal of normal BMI (the top end of which is 169)! I know you all know by now but I have to say it again: I couldn’t have done it without Naturally Slim!!
Oops! That’s hard to see on that background…so off to the garage!
And then I didn’t want to wear that out and about so changed into a new shirt (with my new jeans from the other day).
And the collage I posted online…and Naturally Slim shared!
Now I have to see if my body thinks it should lose another 15 or so so I can claim that I lost half my body weight!
Okay, folks, who wore it better? Yes, here’s a DOOZY of a Then & Now. I first wore this dress to my high school Senior Awards Night and then to my graduation party (as seen in the photo, 1991). I loved the dress and kept it at my mom’s house all these years, wanting to get back into it someday. And that day was today to celebrate our 15th anniversary! And I traded the single-strand pearls for the pearls I wore with my wedding dress!
Sidenote 1: Owen took the picture from tonight.
Sidenote 2: When Owen saw me working on the collage, he said “WAIT. YOU HAD THAT DRESS 25 YEARS AGO?”
None of us had ever been up Brockway Mountain, so we did that after mini golf.
Owen took a selfie!
I don’t remember loving the pool (and water) this much at this age, but I know I did later on. She has to be my daughter. I’m actually amazed at everything she does in the pool. Even just two weeks ago she couldn’t get a ring that had sunk to the bottom of the pool and now she dives down no problem! And of course, she still jumps off the side like a crazy person!
Owen took the camera. He has no idea how to hold it and every single picture has his fingers or hand in it.
A shirt from the shopping trip I had with my friend a few months ago (that I haven’t worn yet) and one of my new XS (!!) Lularoe maxi skirts!
It’s still feels a little weird to be “dressing up” just to go to the movies, but this is what I wanted—it’s not really dressing up, it’s just looking put together.
Getting ready to see Finding Dory and splurge on delicious hot buttered movie popcorn!
I asked Owen to take my picture this morning but it was a bit rushed since he was on his way out the door to the bus stop…so I didn’t get to set it up right…and I didn’t realize until later that I had a sneaky photobomber.
This is a dress from Le Tote that I was pretty sure I was keeping so today was the real world test. It passed.
