the real me

There is a movement going around to show the "real you." You can find out more about it at

When I first heard about it I thought, there is no way in hell I am posting pics of me sans make up on my blog. And then I thought, why not? Most people that read this already love me and have seen me way worse than the pics posted. So here I go. The first pic is one day last fall, where make-up just never made it into the day. I wish I could say I photoshopped the pimples and eye wrinkles in, but sadly, they are real. The second is Christmas morning. Because, who has time to put on make-up (or brush hair/teeth) before present opening?

A few other random "real me" confessions:

I love stale popcorn. Will make it a day in advance just to eat it stale.

I love to pick things. Like pimples. They don't even have to be mine. Chris gets so mad at me when I devise a surprise attack on him. Or boogers. Ellie is almost too old to tell me to shove off. I think I have about 6 more months of booger picking before she won't let me anymore. Or toe jam. I love me some toe jam!

I like coconut. Why is this weird? Because my mother HATED coconut and Paige HATES coconut and I want to HATE it on principle. But I don't. I actually really, really like it. Paige, please still love me.

So there. The real me. Anyone else up for the challenge??

Want to say that I am horribly grossed out by the coconut, but it is actually the toe jam that has me saying, "ewwwwww, gross!!!" And apparently I love TeeTee more...just sayin'!

The first picture is beautiful! I wouldn't even have been able to tell you didn't have makeup on if you hadn't told me!

I can confess that I am exactly the same about picking things! I do the surprise attack to my hubby too...he hates it! It is actually hardest for me at work being a nurse and all I see lots of things that I want to pick at there! haha
