Soap Box

Anybody familiar with Dove's real beauty campaign? It's a beautiful, you should check it out. I don't think I quite got it until tonight. Case in point, me. I took a picture I liked and messed with it, only to turn around and look at same photo and think I looked gross. I know I will NEVER look at magazine pictures the same again. I'm all for a little subtle editing but I was just shocked at what I did to myself - and I don't even know what I'm doing! My girls are always going to know about this, it has to help some in the whole body image war, don't ya think? You can't help but be bombarded with it but knowing that those people probably don't look like that everyday of their life, that's just power. Oh and those diet "before and afters" ... whatever. Just a little public service announcement to all the beautiful women in my life!

Go ahead, the laugh's on me.

Soooo, I had to a self portrait for this workshop thingy I'm attending. I thought about this one, what do you think? Note the remote - I think it adds a nice touch.

For about two seconds I thought liked the pouty look but then I decided it just looked like I had some sour patch candy or maybe that I was about to blow a bubble.
So I settled on this one. I've gotten pretty good at touch up's eh? Since we all know I don't look like this. Although I really didn't do anything to my eyes, freaky huh? Man, I need to get some sunglasses - look at those wrinkles. Nathan doesn't believe me when I keep harping on prescription sunglasses, anybody want to start a letter writing campaign? I'm betting they'll be cheaper than an eye tuck...
So I don't want to hear anymore complaints about no pictures of me, okay? Cause I'll just point you back to here. That's four Rachel pictures and fake Rachel, it's a record.

Despite being sick, we had a really good day yesterday. We had a little party after Daddy got home, with pickle sandwiches and cupcakes. The balloon, as always, was a hit. Her favorite present was a pack of M&M's her Daddy got her. The bubble machine was sooo much fun but it was so windy they all blew away. We can't wait to play with it when it's not windy! We can't get her to do the whole 2 finger thing but she says "TWO!" quite well.

this is what she looked like after the make up massacre. Not too bad, I think most of it was on the bed! What you can't see is that it looked like she had rolled in it. It was in her hair, on her legs, etc...

Watch out folks, there is a new group of bandits in the area.

You should be safe if you keep your makeup drawer locked and the crayons out of sight.
