A post just for Lauri

I finally got around to taking a photo of myself. I should have had Willow snap a quick on when she was here this morning, but I hadn’t showered and I’ve embarrassed myself with less than attractive photos of myself. I think I’ve used up my quota on that one.

So you get a bonus in this one… I am wearing mascara and lipstick. I think the sky nearly fell in. An even bigger bonus is that Willow delivered our prints from the family photo shoot back in December. I was having a good hair day that day (the day after I got it cut) and thought I’d share that one too. Plus, you get to see how hott my husband it. Gawd, he is just gorgeous.

So this is me this morning…


And this is the trusty husband and (cropped out of the family photo Willow took)…

Elle & the trusty husband

Evidently I like to wear green.

So my hair is a little shorter in the back than it is in the front. It isn’t horribly short in the back. Certainly not like this. And like I said, not so much crack whory. It is my natural color with some highlights. It is easy to fix, but for the most part I have to still pull out the flattening iron. The photo from this morning is without styling products, a blow dry and a run through with the flattening iron. With the rain here, if I put product in my hair it is a greasy mess by the end of the day. I refuse to carry an umbrella.


To add, in that shot of the trusty husband and I… I was wearing 3″heels.

    Ha… I like your “comment” mandate! Nice pictures! Impressive self-portrait!

  2. I LOVE your new haircut! Very cute, sassy, and sexy! And green brings out the red in your hair; again, very sassy. You two look very happy together – congrats on 12.5 years of marriage and 14 (?!?) years together! (Has it really been that long?)

  3. Cutey patootey!

    Your hair looks beautiful, I love it!! I think this is my favorite style for you.

    I thought of you today because I went to DSW. We have my husband’s work holiday party tonight (better late than never) and I needed a pair of dressy shoes that would be comfortable with a low heel. I would normally like a higher heel but these days my feet hurt so it’s all about comfort. Apparently patent leather is very in right now because that’s what every other pair of black shoes was.

    Have a great weekend!
