No wardrobe malfunctions here!

Thank you to everyone and their sweet comments on my pictures. I regretted posting them as soon as I hit “publish” but your comments were lovely. Who doesn’t like to hear that they look fabulous?? Of course, I only posted a few of the more modest ones. I saved the good ones for my husband. Who, I ended up showing the pictures because I’m terrible at keeping secrets. I couldn’t keep it to myself any longer. And, um…he kind of liked them. You know. Just a little. Ahem. I did a series in his firefighter helmet and bunker gear and we will just say that he was quite happy with them...

And so...I’ve bared my soul and my body on this blog. What’s left?

How about the silly things my kids say?

OK then.

Nick: “Mom? I can see your thing,” he says, pointing at my bra.
Me: “What thing?”
Nick: “That thing that you cover your pimples with.”

Delaney, watching me put acne cream on.
“Is that for your nipples?” she asked.

Nipples, pimples. It all the same.

Daddy: “You’re going to get cold! Button your coat!”
Delaney: “I can just hold it shut.”
Daddy: “How are you going to keep your hands warm?”
Delaney: “I have skin.”

Nick: "This place is a complete pig style!"

And on that completely unrelated note... yet another picture from the same photo shoot. I was going to post it yesterday with the other ones but I was so busy making sure there weren't any wardrobe malfunctions that I forgot. But I wanted to post it. It's one of my top 5 favorites of me, ever (possibly because there is something over my face). But just humor me, OK?

It seems like the photo should have a story. It's mysterious. What is she looking at? What is she thinking? (And well, I know the answers and it's not terribly mysterious or even slightly interesting. Perhaps I should make something up.)

You are very photogenic-there was not a bad photo in the bunch! I, on the other hand, have a bad side when it comes to pictures-my husband will even say, "Ooh, let's take that one again but from a different angle." Thank goodness for digital photography!

(btw: I'm glad your husband liked these, but I don't think any of us thought otherwise... Hope you're not getting the snow!)

Buckeroomama said...

LOL! Kids do say the funniest things, don't they?

Your photo is gorgeous. Really. :)

Matty said...

You were supposed to show them to him when you're alone! Ahem.

Amy said...

Oh my goodness, do all the pictures of you turn out so well? Seriously! I have yet to see poor one. That photo is amazing! And your kids are so cute. I love their confusion between nipples and pimples. Hilarious.

Carri said...

Your pictures are gorgeous and that looks like so much fun. BTW kids say the darndest things so cute pimples and nipples, good things both were covered in the pictures LOL.

Shannon said...

Ahh, another perfect picture of you. What it must feel like to be so dang gorgeous. You've got it rough girl. lol!! With cute and clever kids to boot!!!

Life Laugh Latte said...

Of course I had to go back and look at the pictures. A beautiful woman you are...so proud of you for doing that. Very brave. Amazing. I can only imagine how much your hubs loved them. I should do it too. Hmmm...gives me something to think about. Holly at LLL

mudmama said...

Gorgeous! And mysterious- like you said. Makes me think of Jackie O a little. I have to go see your other ones now- how fun!
Glad you hubby, um, liked 'em!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I love that photo of you. I can see why it is one of your favorites.

Your kids are hilarious! Pimples and nipples....similar? I think not! LOL

Widge said...

wow you are super HOT!

And my kids get pimples and nipples mixed up too

The Peach Tart said...

You are quite the beauty. I love this picture with the veil and the boudoir ones are fabulous. Very sexy but tasteful.

Homemaker Man said...

Are you looking at candy? Or wistfully at the truck for a house cleaning service as it rumbles past?

Brian Miller said...

very nice pic...it does beg a story...kids say the most amazing things. lol.

Daffy said...

You are super photogenic...they should be submitted to someone somewhere (I just know nada about that kind of thing). They are fabulous!!!!

As yes, out of the mouth of babes. I just love the things they say. Last week was parent/teacher conferences at my husband's school. He dressed in more formal attire than usual and one of his 4th grade students said to him "Wow Mr. M, you look like you could speak French or something."

I love the way kids think!

brainella said...

I don't have pimples, I have bumps. I had to explain why Mommy has bumps but Daddy does not. That was fun.

That picture -- gorgeous.

Chantel said...

I think the pictures were great! Kids say some pretty funny stuff. My son told me his take on childbirth once when we were waiting for a doctors appointment. Apparently, when you push, your stomach explodes and the baby is thrown at the doctor. Interesting.

Ed Adams said...

Kids say the best stuff.

Also, the pics are beautiful.

Joshua said...

Seriously, I thought I was looking at a picture of Juliette Binoche until you said it was you.

She's in my top five list.

Ahem.

Raelene said...

Kids are too funny!! "Pig style" LOL. You look gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

That One Mom said...

Amazing picture. You are so beautiful.

suzicate said...

That's a lovely photograph. Your kids are hilarious!

Jessica said...

Aaaah to be photogenic and live in a pig style. ;)

Your much braver than I would ever be! But then, I know I don't take good pics, and that's the honest truth!
Smoke em if you've got em hon!

Alice in Wonderland said...

Every woman should get a set of photos like this done!
You can always look back and smile or cringe, but you are really so photogenic.
I love sepia or black and white photos, but that is just me!

Jessi said...

Nipples/pimples all the same :) Too funny!

Your kids are hilarious and WOW you are one hot momma! Love the pictures!

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

Kids are always good for a laugh, aren't they?

And I love the photo, it's my favorite. It reminds me of Jackie O.

Dawn said...

That's the Jackie O. pose... and you're thinking of a hunk of firefighter manliness... right?

Out of the mouths of babes...

Tina said...

Mamma I love the pictures.. .would like to look good enough to pose for a few... they are lovely and I am SURE your husband loves them. (ps is blogger comments going nuts today or is it JUST me?)

Em Static said...

Haha! A pig style! I'm stealing that one next time I'm complaining about Man leaving his shoes/socks/underpants etc on the floor after I've cleaned.

Love the pic, too.

Just Breathe said...

I do like that picture allot.
Doesn't look like she is looking at pimples or nipples :)

Momma Such said...

I LOVE That photo! It's absolutely beautiful, and so are you! I am so jealous! If only I could have a body like that after having children! You go girl! :)

Jessica said...

I've come back to comment again, but not in a stalker kind of way;
I’m passing the Beautiful Blogger Award on to you!

That’s right YOU, Mz. Photogenic!
You can even visit my site and see it in big, fancified “Matter-O-Facto” and get the 411 / the skinny/ the shiznit.
Most importantly, the Pic. ;)
You So Rock! I want to weep at your awesomeness.

Andrea (ace1028) said...

Another beautiful shot. I'm jealous! Love the "what your kids say," tee hee. Nipples, pimples. Well, what can ya do? It's all the same!

Marla said...

Your kids comments are hysterical!!! ....and you, my friend, are gorgeous!!!

Farila said...

I love that pic of you ... it looks like some classic painting of a woman and has an aura of mystery... Now you have to come up with a blog which will make it more mysterious..
Your kids are hilarious.. LOL

My name is PJ. said...

The photo is lovely and very Jacqueline Kennedy-esque. I'd blow it up and wallpaper the biggest wall in my living room if that was of me!

Your kids are a riot!!

Erin said...

I am behind in BlogLand this week, so I'm about to go back to your previous post, too.

This photo of you is---I'm speechless. You are gorgeous. I love it. Thank you for sharing---I know how hard it is to share pics of oneself publicly, but you have no reason to be shy!

Deidra said...

The photos in the previous post, and the one today are awesome! Makes me wish I lived in Denver. (Well, it's not just the photos that make me wish that. There's the mountains, the streams, the biking and hiking. But I digress...) I'll have to see if someone here in Lincoln can do something similar! What a great birthday gift that would be for my husband!

Angie Muresan said...

blueviolet said...

It's a Jackie O. shot and very lovely!

I love the things your kids say. I always wrote stuff like that down. So cute!

Christine said...

You are a rock star. If it was me, I would seriously put all these photos up everywhere in the house. And the neighbor's house. LMAO!

Nah, I'm sorta shy, but you should do it! :D

WhisperingWriter said...

Haha about the pimples.

I love that photo.

Tiffany said...

Helena said...

Of course your husband loved them. Heck, me, I pointed my phone at myself without a shirt, clicked and sent it to him and he just about bowed down and worshipped me. Guys are not too complicated when it comes to that. Gotta love them!

Mrsblogalot said...

That last one is my favorite!

Fabulous!!!!!

lisleman said...

You're looking out the window for the love of your life to show up. That was easy.
