team-up thursday: week 5

team-up thursday again!
week 5...the self-portrait challenge.

this was a tough one.
a photo of me. it's a rarity. i'm usually
the one taking the pictures. like you never know
i was there because i'm never in any of the photos
kind of deal. maybe you know the drill. so silly
really. i'm going to start being in more pictures
starting today!


i snapped a picture in a favorite spot in the house.
i tried not to think about it too much. henry was
saying something funny to me... and there you
have it! just a simple mom moment in my day
to day routine. i really love how carissa is looking straight
at the camera. strong and vulnerable all at the same
time. a very cool capture. and i told her i would be by later
to steal the adorable cabinet:)

in other news...
i'm having a little last minute update in the shop tonight!

TONIGHT
thursday 2/25
7:00 p.m. EST (new york time!)

this cough/cold/JUNK that has been going around my
house and all the snow outside (i can hear the snow
plow going by as i'm writing this) and the freezing weather
has worn out its welcome. i'm ready for spring. so sorry
winter. toodle looo. i imagined up a little group of gals
that meet every thursday morning for "thursday morning
swim club". they wear their tiny bathing suits with pride and
they wear fabulous swim caps and they laugh and jump
around in the ocean and have all sorts of fun in the sun.
4 of these gals will be at the update tonight along with
some other little treats. woohoo for more bowling pin girls:)

see you later! happy thursday!
take a picture of yourself today.
you will be glad years from now:)
xoxo...jenn

Jenny Stevning said...

I am in love with their "babin" suits!!!

So cute jenn and I can't wait for spring!! I want to did in the garden:) Love the Ladies:) I need two more to go with my pink one:) Oh I took pictures of my noodle and lou collections:) Elma

Cara said...

These are great, I love how casual they both are. I know what you mean about never being in front of the camera. My husband has had people ask if he had a wife to go with the kids since every picture he has is of the boys or him and never me.

Christina said...

so warm and inviting- both of you gals! I love it! And that thursday morning swim club - cuuuute!

Amy Jo said...

The photos and the bathers are lovely! Very creative!
