Feeling 'Bossy' today

Yesterday I gushed about how someone at my husband’s birthday party last weekend thought I had not ¬†yet reached the 40 milestone. Along with the gush was a “photoshopped” picture of myself taken two months ago.

I used this image because:

  • I like it
  • I still had my long hair
  • My long hair hadn’t yet gotten so damaged it had to be cut off
  • I wanted to simulate how I may have looked in the dim mood lighting of the party where alcohol was served. I did so by creating a soft blur with Adobe Photoshop, thereby eliminating all that yucky stuff that shows up in bright light/flash photography.

Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Bossy, who isn’t afraid to display less-than-perfect pictures of herself, particularly when it comes to the state of her hair, I have decided to show the Internets a different view of the same subject. A view that will make it clear I am over the 40 fence. While it pains me to post this, I am doing so because:

  • Guess how many chins!
  • Hate.The.Haircut.
  • School called. Lunch lady position available.

  1. I’m laughing so hard right now. I hate this picture. My daughter took it when I was eating at a holiday party. I was trying to avoid having food spill out of my mouth. And by the way Ms. Foolery, I’ve seen pictures of you and you are being just as silly. So there!
