Me, Myself and I

I_Heart_Faces_noborder_125x100
This is how I looked when I woke up this morning and realized it was self portrait week at I Heart Faces.
You can see how delighted I am.becky face for i heart faces
There is nothing I enjoy more than having a picture of myself taken.
Nothing at all.
Except possibly having toothpicks inserted in my eyeballs,
running over a bed of nails with hot coals attached to my toes,
or having every bone in my body broken by a secret service agent.
Other than those few instances, I could take pictures of myself all day and all night.
Here is a joke that made me laugh my head off:
A woman, standing nude, looks into the bathroom mirror and says to her husband, "I look horrible, I feel fat and ugly. Pay me a compliment."
The husband replies, "Your eyesight's darn near perfect."
He never heard the gunshot.
(Joke found here)
Happy Monday Beautiful.

I have a hard time smiling like I mean it in pictures, I always feel cheesy. I like your self-portrait :)

And I totally LOLed at "he never heard the gunshot." hahaha

Sylvia K said...

You're beautiful and I love your humor! A friend sent that same joke to me and I love it! Hope you have a great week. Give Kaishon a hug for me and keep one for yourself as well!

I love that joke....I need a gun. :)

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

That is such a fun photo! Sounds like you enjoy having your picture taken about as much I do! :)

Ashley Sisk said...

You have personality written all over this photo! I love it.

Tracy P. said...

You need a Susan Keller mini-sermon, Miss Becky. You ARE BEAUTIFUL!!! And your family needs to see more pictures of the woman behind the camera who makes them grin from ear to ear. We do too. Hugs to you!

Sarah Halstead said...

Great selfie!

angie {the arthur clan} said...

Best joke EVER!!!

I think we had twin posts this week (ie. "I hate to have my photo taken.) That must mean we're best buds or something. :)

Your gorgeous! Your hair looks beauteous in the morning mine is crazy! You need to take more pictures of yourself.....!

Modesty is Pretty said...

hahaha I love your sense of humor, you know what, my clothes cover all the stretch marks and fat folds and did I say stretch marks? Okay those times two! A few years ago I was big (as in obese)but I looked for things to make me feel beautiful, a bit of make-up, dressing-up, wearing a favorite clothing or even doing my hair always helped me. Try it, wear something that you consider special. I hope that you try to see the beauty in you, God made us beautiful in unique ways. You feel fat and I feel lonely but why hammer us down when we are loved by the All mighty? Have a blssed week. Hugs! =)

Mari said...

I love the picture - you're beautiful! However, I am the same way. I love to take pictures of others, but don't turn that camera on me~!

Brooke said...

i love that you finally got to come out and play!! :)

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Love that creativity! I went for it, too. It's really not fair to show our true, amazing beauty. :)

Yay!! A photo of Becky!! I agree you need to post more pix of yourself (or have more taken). Love this post and hilarious joke!

Darlene said...

Funny post. I would much rather be behind the camera than in front of it! The joke was hilarious!

Karen Deborah said...

You just come and see us and my daughter will make you gorgeous. You wouldn't believe what she's been doing with me. Aside from taking little videos of me at my worst. But they are funny. You are a lovely person.
the joke is hilarious.

You are such a hoot, Beckster! I just know that if ever I'll get to spend a day with you, I'll come back home and tell my husband what a fun day I'd had! =)

Lol!! Love the joke, and your photo, my new, and beautiful, friend!! I'm still mulling over what I should use as my 'self image' ... not sure if I'll figure it out, but I'm sure having fun checking out all the fun photos anyway!! :)

Hehe wonderful!!:) So you're not one of those people who takes a new picture of their own face every day of the year then?:)

Anita Johnson said...

When I saw it was self portrait week I looked in the mirror, made a face and put the camera down. How exactly did you get your inner and outer beauty to show so effortlessly? Waiting for the tutorial.

Hahaha!! You always crack me up! I think all of us "photographers" hate to be in front of the camera, that's why it's such a convenient hobby ;o) Have a great week!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Thanks for leaving me a comment bright and early this morning. It ;ools like you've been busy! I am so glad I found your blog - I'll be back:)!

The Drama Mama said...

I love your self portrait. I, too, hate having pictures of myself taken. I mean I know i have a double chin, but my family's curse is a double chin in pictures, so, yeah. I go from a soft second chin, to like octochins. Ha.

What a great post. I love that joke too. She had good aim. ;)

Tamar SB said...

Wow - too funny, way to be honest! I'd not have the guts to put a picture of what I look like when I first wake up! I'd give the Bride of Frankenstein a run for her money!!

Way to go!

Tamar

Great joke too.

Artemis Clover: The real L.A. love story. said...

i struggle with vanity sometimes so i really applaud you for taking a pic of yourself in the morn!! beauty is who you are and what you do, not the body you use as a vehicle to get you where you need to go in life. <3

nacherluver said...

Buah ha ha ha ha! Found your page for the first time today. You made me smile from ear to ear. Thank you for that.

You're adorable!

lifebythecreek said...

How in the world did this slip past me? You snuck it in on purpose, didn't you? I love it... LOVE it! And I love you! And the joke... the last line was PERFECT. Just like you...

Amy Henderson said...

haha you crack me up! I love it, your gorgeous daling!

the Lola Letters said...

I think you need to start a weekly self portrait project like your most recent interviewee suggested.

Not only would you get a better idea of how lovely you are, we would also be able to enjoy some seriously AMAZING shots! Woot woot!

Do it.

Liz said...

Love the picture of you! Funny joke!
