My Intro Day: A Little Expanded

I like to share extra little stories about my life. This is how we get to know each other, right? So this is for those of you that like a little behind the scenes “who really is this person?” kind of stuff. It’s a random story about my first task as a contestant for Season 14 Project Run and Play.

To start out this adventure I had to send the lovely ladies that are the hard workers behind this competition a head shot of myself as well as a little bio. This is that little snippet. What you can’t see in those intros is how hard it is to write some witty and endearing paragraph and find a picture of myself that I actually like!

So, this is me searching for a head shot. It’s like trying to find a good picture of my youngest. People, to get to know the real me is to find out that I have very few pictures of myself that I am proud of! And let’s wait a few years and see how proud this chica is going to be of this winner of a photo!!


So I went looking….


Too “in your face”? My girls LOVE taking pictures of what I look like when I come to take my camera back from them. I’ve started giving them a little extra pizzaz.


Too windswept? Or 80’s hairspray?? This is from a test I did months ago that I’m still waiting for release date for. Hanging on to this beauty!!


Too staged?


Too “froo-froo”? My arms will NEVER be that scrawny!

Yes, these are actual pictures in my files when I go looking. You can thank my husband for those last two. I am, shall we say, not a fan of birds… Really don’t like them. But I very bravely let a parrot sit on my head when on a hot holiday. I thought we lost the pics and was all irritated so he sends me an email one day saying he found them and sent me a whole bunch of these. So helpful. I really thought he had found them!

I did eventually settle on a somewhat reasonable one. But I had a lot of fun looking first. This was just a very small selection of ridiculous photos.

Anyway, you have other things to do. I’m going to hope we get to meet more often. In fact, I’m tempted to beg. I really, really want to show you all the makes I’ve gathered for this season! So go mark next Tuesday on your calendar (October 17, 2017) and be sure to vote!

  1. Oh, I understand!!! My usual picture is from 8 years ago so I actually stopped at my sister’s workplace so she could snap a few for PRP on her lunchbreak since I was on my way home and already had makeup and decent clothes on. It felt so awkward!
