you're it.....


"It's really simple. I love how every photo tells a story. Some short stories, some long tales. I want to know what is your favourite photo of yourself. Everyone has one. The photo they look at and smile. It reminds them of something, some time, some place. A moment in time. So share the photo, share the story and then tag three other people. I want to see photos and stories all around the blogosphere".

This is a great fun excercise that was dreamt up by the lovely Chantelle from fat mum slim. Now it is my turn, I have been tagged by Wynona from Ivy designs......I rib her that she secretly just wants to see what I look like, well you even get my husband in this one too! 

This would have to be one of my favorite pictures of my husband and me, and definitely one that makes me smile when I see it. I was all fake tanned up, hair worked a treat, make up lasted, pants fitted perfect and in a new silky strapless top.
It was taken at our best friends wedding about 6 years ago, when he was the best man.  As you can probably see from the glass in his hand he had a very, very merry night!
This sums up our marriage, our house, our time spent together and our anger (at times) pretty much in one photo. People that know us, will know what I mean when they see this pic (please don't have pity on me that he is not kissing me back, it's all an illusion!) I even used it in the back of our wedding books as the thank you.

This night would have to be one of the best weddings, if not the best wedding we have ever been to. I can normally tell after a few drinks if he is going to have a big one or just a halfer. Going by the Bundy in his hand in the first hour - I knew it was going to be a big one! Everyone danced all night and 'my little dancing queen' led the pack. He spun around, waltzed, carried, fell over and danced with nearly every mother, wife and grandma in the place - this of course after a few solo performances here and there.
My face and hands were so sore the next day from smiling and clapping all night. I don't drink anymore.... I just leave this to him!

I would like to tag these 4...... I couldn't just pick 3

Thanks guys. It was a fun night.
Remember the photo was taken 6 years ago - that was 2 kids ago, heaps of haircuts ago, a few less kilos ago, a few less wrinkles ago, time to spend on myself ago, not a care in the world ago!

Aaaaahhhh back to reality.

Jac - I had to look up Scott Speedman, and I can see a resemblance actually, especially now that he has started to loose his baby features and is looking kind of weathered!
