self-photo challenge!

I’ve never actually done this before, but Chelsey, The (lovely) Paper Mama, posed a photo challenge to her readers. A self-photo challenge! She challenged her readers to post a photo of themselves and blog about themselves and the photo.

Because I’m a the writer of a self-love blog (and, also maybe because Chelsey will choose a winner who will get a cute family portrait from her) I took the bait. If nothing else, it’ll be a chance for me to write things about me that aren’t, you know, “bloggy,” but are just me-y.

So. Here’s my submission for The Paper Mama’s photo challenge!

Oooh, look at me! Hard at work in my cubicle! Listening to Bon Iver! I’m so fun! I’m also:

Currently obsessing over:
The crazy mess that is my house, and my overwhelming apathy toward it. Nesting. Whether or not Durrenbaby is a boy or a girl. Navy blue or lavender? Whether or the five pounds I’ve gained during my pregnancy will turn into 25 or 85 pounds. Please GOD don’t let it be 85 pounds.

Working on:
Two jobs! Holy crap! And writing, when I can. And, in theory, editing my novel.

Thinking about:
“INTERVENTION” IS ON NETFLIX WHICH MEANS I CAN JUST GO AHEAD AND KISS MY SOCIAL LIFE GOODBYE. I hope my husband is okay — he got sick last night and is bed-ridden. It makes me sad. He never gets sick.

February 28th! That’s the next time we have an ultrasound, which is HANDS DOWN the most amazing experience ever. Oh! And we also get to find out the gender of our baby! And, well, anything that has to do with our baby. I love that little person so much already! I am anticipating the start of our life together.

Listening to:
Bon Iver. It calms me. Oh and uh, “Intervention,” which does NOT calm me. I suppose the two cancel each other out.

Ritz crackers. But I’ll be honest, I kind of wish it was a bag of Blazin’ Buffalo Doritos.

I could be a stay-at-home mom when the baby comes.

Hey! I think you should enter Chelsey’s challenge, too. Maybe you’ll win something! And, if not, maybe you’ll just write about yourself truthfully for the first time in a while.

  1. You’re so beautiful and I like your hair! Is it in a braid/knot/bun thing? How’d you do it? Also, I’ve been really enjoying your baby blog!
