How many bloggers does it take to take one good picture?

Apparently more than three.

Thank God for my two blogging friends, Jodie & Rachel, who called me as soon as the conference was over, saying, "Are you hungry?"

Of course, I was. But, was not sure I could get away. You know ... the whole being in charge means making sure everything is clean & neat & put away before you can leave.

I had a great bunch of people that had it all under control, and after hugging & thanking my friend, Carlie, and crying out of pure exhaustion and happiness that the event was over and a success, I called them back and said, "I'm coming. Order me some shrimp quesadillas."

I was off to the little Mexican restaurant down the street.

We talked and laughed & then, of course, had to get a pic to commemorate the event, like any true blogger would do.

Now, before you judge these pics, you must note that we had been working all day. Jodie & Rachel at their booths. Me doing some MBWA (management by walking around) at the marketplace that was held in conjunction with the women's conference.

People, I was tired (4 1/2 hours of sleep) and greasy and didn't wash my hair because of the torrential downpour that was occurring all weekend. These pics are evidence of those facts.

And, a question ... if you saw three women struggled and contorting their bodies to just take one picture, wouldn't you offer to help? I would. We laughed so hard we were crying.




Sorry, girls. You knew they would hit the blog. Take heart that you two don't look the worst.

No need for defensiveness - and I'm not just sayin' this - the three of you do NOT look like you just worked all day and are tired. Really beautiful - all of you!

LOL -- you look pained in the last picture -- but all of you DO look beautiful! If I looked that good after only 4.5 hours of sleep, I think I'd sleep less! ;)

TCKK said...

Donnetta said...

How fun!! And y'all look fabulous!

BaronessBlack said...

She's right! You do all look beautiful!
A touch manic, maybe? But definitely beautiful!

Tracie said...

ummmmmmmm......jealous!

Rachel said...

Oh gosh, I am cracking up laughing just looking at these!

I still hold to my claim that no one helped us because they probably thought we were swigging down margaritas. I'm just glad I still have a halfway normal smile on my face in the last picture because I was laughing so hard I could barely breathe. :)

Such fun! Can't wait for you guys to come visit me!

you're totally rockin the greasy hair. i'm a big fan of that look myself--only because i'm the poster child for it.

{Jodie} said...

I'm still laughing. :)

Debra said...

So funny! Those are cute pictures of the three of you. What a great way to end a wonderful, yet long and tiring day! :)

Tammy said...

Cute photos...my little sister and I have so many photos of ourselves from this angle!

Jeanette said...

I would have never guessed the exhaustion I'm sure you felt.

You guys just looked like you had a GREAT time!

Love girl friends :}

Y'all are all beautiful! I bet there was plenty of laughter involved.
