38/52 PICTURES OF ME

**The winner of my Dear John book giveaway is A Nut In A Nutshell!!!**

I'm participating in a year long challenge, created by Carin at Forever In Blue Jeans. The goal is to be in one picture a week, for 52 weeks. Since us moms are always behind the camera, this gives us a chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. So, click here if you want to join in on the fun!

This picture was tagged to me on Facebook at the perfect time because I didn't have any other ones to share for this week!

This was at a friends Christmas party, and yes, that is me arm wrestling my friend Lorna. We did once before in the cafe at church, and it was a total tie. You should have heard everyone encouraging us to go at it again. It was so fun!!!! I tell ya, both of our arms were hurting the next day, because even though we were smiling the entire time, we were both giving it our 100%!!

So, here behind me are some of the kids watching in amusement, but what you don't see are at least 20 of the men and boys to my left with cameras and cell phones taking pictures!!

Photobucket

And in all honesty, I was thinking of this movie the entire time.

Great shot... Over the Top, Right? I'm more comfortable BEHIND the camera, but then I'm no where near as pretty as you and your family! I DO get my family out there sometimes, though!
