This is not a request for porn. I MEAN IT.

Should I be worried that my 4 year old daughter can tell that I am wearing lipstick, simply from its scent, when I lean over her head from behind to brush her hair?

"Ooh! Mommy! You're wearing lipstick! Can I have some, too?!?"

And then Patrick inquires, with a puzzled look on his face,

"You're wearing lipstick? What's with all the make up lately?"

And by "All the makeup lately" he means that I have washed my face every day and applied a bare minimum to cover any pimples or paleness before the little boy I babysit arrives around 1:30.

Which is more concerning? The amazing make-up sensing abilities of Corinne, or the fact that a little glossy lipstick and blush causes Patrick to be alarmed? I'm sure he was picturing me primping and preening for some random guy (I DO get a lot of UPS deliveries for reviews...) and the words "lipstick" and "showered" *falling in 2 consecutive days caused a few red flags to go up. I should be flattered, right? Because this is how I look on my "made-up days" at home:


I KNOW. The hotness is frying the circuits on MY computer, TOO! Sorry bout that.

Also? When trying to take a picture of yourself? It is advisable that you stop after 1 or 2. Otherwise, THIS is what tends to occur as a result...

What? It's just me? I'm the oooonly one who does this? As if. Come on. FESS UP. Show me your weirdest pics. (But this? This is not a request for nakey nakey shots. Those? Those you can send to my email). ***

*By showered 2 consecutive days, I mean that I managed to wipe the necessary parts of my body with a wet washcloth on one of those days.**

**Don't judge me.

*** please don't send them to my email.

If you saw the photos taken on our laptop photo both (before they fried along with our hard drive), many would be similar to those you just posted!

This post cracked me up. I am impressed by your daughter's keen sense of smell with regard to cosmetics. I love that your husband considered lip stick and general cleanliness as all made up.

How's the babysitting going?

So I ended up watching a trailer for the new movie 2012 (disaster movie JUNKIE over here) starring John Cusack and Amanda Peet and it hit me:

YOU LOOK EXACTLY LIKE AMANDA PEET.

That is the second time in one week I have heard the Amanda Peet thing. Which I appreciate because she is rich and now I can steal her identity and make movies too and become fiiiiilthy rich! Muwaaahaaahaaa!

Man, I miss you! I'd jump on a plane right now and come visit if I could. Would that warrant a shower/sponge bath? ;-)

Charisse and Holly said...

I'm so glad that no one can see me most days that I am blogging. I try to at least make an attempt to not look completely disheveled when hubs gets home...but often I fail:) Come over for a visit. Holly at lifelaughlatte

I like your silly pictures.

I do things like that sometimes.

CaraBee said...

I never take pictures like that. Sha. I'm far too cool and sophisticated for such things. Yeah, right.

Pregnantly Plump said...

I try to avoid the camera, especially since my make up routine is putting on chapstick before bed.

Jess said...

See!!! I posted a few months ago that you look like EXACTLY like Amanda Peet - I think you had to look up who she was.
Love the post. Am not brave enough to show pics of myself without makeup. Now, the pics I had taken with a friend today after some margaritas? Those I would share:)

Mama Smurf said...

Kami's Khlopchyk said...

Ha! I don't mess up my pictures on purpose, more by accident. I should do it on purpose, you look cool. I just look like a doofus.
