picture day

today was staff picture day.

it brought back all of the emotions of school picture day.

did you stress and worry about that day, too? i always managed to have a bad hair day, get a stain on myself and wear mismatched shoes all in the same stinking day.

how did today go, you ask? (you’re so sweet.)

it was good. photos were taken. laughs were had. we even did an awkward family photo-inspired pic. (i’d share it with you, but i’m pretty sure i’d lose 8 friendships and 1 job.)

an excellent rating of the day would have included my necklace not breaking on the way to the shoot and zero fire ants on the corner of the bench upon which i sat for the group photo. alas, excellent was just not in the cards. maybe next year.

ps 3rd grade caitlin wanted to say hey.

wasn’t she ahead of the times with her layered bracelets, floral print, and braid? stylin.

    I stress so much about getting my kids pictures taken (we do it every fall for the Christmas cards). I stress about what they should wear (it has to coordinate but not be matchy-matchy) and about how they’ll behave (they are good kids but sitting still is hard for little kids). People have asked me why my husband and I aren’t in the photos. Why? Because I’m too stressed out to be bothered to look good too!

    I love AFP!

      Aww I bet they’re adorable! I can imagine it would be stressful to get kids ready for photos. Such fun memories though :)

    AHHHHHHHH hahahahaha!!! :) This. Is. Awesome.

    I was the kid who’s mom made her get up at the crack of dawn on picture day, to GO GET HER HAIR DONE BY OUR HAIR STYLIST! No joke. I dreaded it. My hair was always poofy and hair-sprayed beyond belief. I remember the first year my mom forgot about picture day… I was so shocked. And I wore a Goofy & Mickey t-shirt and had normal hair. hahahaha ahhh memories.
