WIWW #3 ~ AKWARD poses ~

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by to see me today. I did a couple posts on WIWW and it was so much fun, and I had the sweetest nicest comments, so I want to try to make it a habit to dress up AT least once a week, and get out of my yoga clothes, lol. 

This weekend I went to a baby shower, remember the BABY CONVERSE CAKE? It was for that, and I got dressed up, just a little. I don't really like wearing dresses, but this dress is so comfortable, and I love that it hides EVERYTHING, like it's seriously magical, he he. I wore a nice chunky belt, high on the waist. I also don't wear heels anymore, because my feet hurt too bad, but these sandals I could actually stand in for more than an hour. 

Now get ready to laugh, because I HAVE no idea how to pose for pictures, I have NO IDEA.
My sweet 6 year old daughter was my photographer, thank goodness she has MAD skills, because she actually made me look OK. Love you princess!!









The dress is from Khols.
Sandals from Ross.
Headband from Agape Love Designs. 
Necklace from Charm Bracelet Diva.

Would you believe me if I told you I didn't even shave my legs, YIKES. I had NO time, so I was totally sporting stuble all day, lol. 

Oh and CAN ANYONE give me some pointers on how not to look constipated in all my pics. I so wish I could pose naturally, please help. 

Oh and thank you brick wall from my local CVS, I will be back to see you soon, love the brick background, but hate people looking at me while I'm trying to take pics, WEIRD....

So what do you think? Easy? Hard? Do you think you can do it now, he he. It took me quite a while, obviously it was my first time, and just getting the template right was a bit hard. I still need to work at it more, but overall I think for my first time, I am very pleased.

Pizza Quesadilla Recipe

Here's a super quick way to eat Pizza, without actually making pizza. It's fast, and easy, and tastes just like a thin crust pizza. Just add pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite toppings. 

The after pic just doesn't do this justice, but trust me it's GOOD.

Make sure to come back tonight to link up all your awesome projects.

My Photo
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
