Me

OK, this is me. My sister took this picture of me to use on my profile. I WAS going to use it, until I took a closer look. In front of me is a bottle of Peach Schnapps. Behind me to the right is a bottle of gin! Next to that is, uh, something. I'm not really sure. It looks like I'm at a wild party. I was actually at my mom's house for dinner with my sister and her family and my cousin. Not exactly a happening party, but I didn't want anyone getting the wrong impression of me! Oh, and also, there a paper coming out of my head!

I think she felt bad for me, because she made me this new layout and is going to try to edit out all that background stuff. So here's the pic for now. Hopefully the new one will come soon. (So, is this what you thought I looked like?)

LOL that is so funny! I wouldn't have noticed is you hadn't mentioned it. That sounds about like my luck!

Amy said...

maria - nice to see you in person! i think it's a good picture. you could always just crop it if you don't want those things in it but i wouldn't judge you either way!

Summer said...

I wouldn't have noticed the drinks, probably cause I don't drink I wouldn't ahve even known what those were.

I like your new header!

That is a good picture of you. I wouldn't have noticed the bottles! Glad to see you have a picture! Have a great weekend!

Flea said...

That is EXACTLY what I thought you looked like. :) It really will be a good picture once it's cropped.

Kitty said...

Woohoo! Loving this new layout - it's much more 'you' than that last one (in my humble opinion).

You look lovely! x

I have very few pictures of myself because I rarely give anyone else the camara. I think it is a good picture- run with it! Or you know what, if you are putting it in the little box that shows up when you comment, you might want a closer shot- the box is really small. Just a thought. Mines not the greatest.

That is a good picture of you. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I usually igonore scratches on my car (there are several others). But, I have to have this one professionally fixed because the scratch is so deep and I am afraid of rust!

Have a good weekend!

"Hello, my name is Maria and I'm a ...". Really, it's not what I was thinking at all;)

You are so funny! I do like the paper thing coming out of your head...that's gotta hurt!

And, you are exactly how I pictured you! Glad to finally "see" you! Maybe one day, I'll get brave too...

Mary said...

Nice to see you!
I think it's a good picture :)
(for some reason I thought you were a brunette!)
I love your new header :)

MAGIRK said...

LOL :D I was going to say that you could crop the picture just for your face, but then you mentioned the paper coming out of your head, and I lost it laughing! :D

You're beautiful. :)

Cecily R said...

It's a really nice picture! I'm with Amy-just crop it. Or leave it. Honestly, I am boring and don't know what any of those bottles look like. Even if I had, I don't think I would have noticed because I am partly braindead from not sleeping. And, really who is anyone to judge based on what's on your counter?

My profile picture is the only one of me on my entire blog. In 120 posts. Sad really.

Leah said...

I honestly didn't notice the booze! ROFL And I pictured you as a brunette. not sure why!

denise said...

You have become brave! Cropping the pic will still show much of the background. Just take another pic without so much going on behind you. Have one of the kids do it. If you want I can do it next time I see you or I'm sure your sis can take another one. Maybe a pic at the beach would be nice, in the summer. I love the liquor all around you, that is hysterical. I would have never noticed if you hadn't pointed it out.

Amy said...

LOVE the header. It is great. Your tag line is perfect too.

I think the picture of you surrounded by alcohol is perfect for a Mommy of Four. How else would you cope?
Ok, maybe not, but it is still funny.

Amy said...

I love the picture...and I don't think there's anything wrong with peach schnapps or gin...LOL...though out I prefer a glass of wine or a beer...for some reason I pictured you as a brunette...don't know where I got that idea...You are so cute! so nice to finally see you!

Kellan said...

Yeah - you need to edit that piece of paper coming out of your head - HA!!! I love the new layout and the picture is going to be great (less the booze and paper)- tee hee! Have a great weekend Maria- seen you soon. Kellan

Bia said...

I understand perfectly...my Mom is Italian and hosts these wonderful dinner parties and sometimes there are wine bottles everywhere.

Good picture, though...you should use it.

Karen said...

At least YOU"RE photogenic.

KIDZMAMA said...

I did see the bottles, but only after I looked at it close up. I've been going through old pictures lately and it seems that every occasion, even toddler birthday parties, there are bottles of alcohol on the table. I pictured you as a curly headed brunette! I was soooo off.

My Ice Cream Diary said...

I seriously had you in my mind as having thick, wavy, dark brown hair and being rather Italian in looks. Boy was I wrong! =)

I have to laugh at the party animal background.

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

Nope - I pictured you as dark-haired and Italian looking.

Shellie said...

OK, I thought brunette too, but you look great as a blond. Just crop it close enough to get the paper out of your head :)

If you hadn't pointed out all that stuff, I would have never noticed. But I know how you feel, my favorite picture of my little family was taken by a friend one night when we were all sitting out on our deck. The bottle of beer on the table in front of the Toddler (who was then a baby) kind of ruined the photo for all usage. Oops.
