Tagged - Me As I Really Am

I liked reading this tag on Katie's blog...until I got to the end and saw that she tagged me. (I wasn't so hot on it after that.) This tag was like a freeze tag. I had to take pictures of how things really were at that moment. A dangerous thing indeed.


THE SINK as it really is. You don't know how tempted I was to wash the soaking pan from dinner before I took this picture...but I didn't. I followed the rules.THE FRIDGE as it really is. I've got to clean out some of those leftovers!THE LAUNDRY ROOM as it really is...complete with a mountain of towels to wash.THE TOILET as it really is. The lid is up and I'd bet money the rest of the toilets in this house are in the up position as well. I was just grateful it was flushed.THE CLOSET as it really is. All the empty hangers = I have lots of laundry to do. MY FAVORITE ROOM as it really is. I love my bedroom. Love the windows, love the view, love napping on my bed.MY FAVORITE SHOES as they really are. I'm not into shoes. If I could get away with it, I'd rather just go barefoot. Here are my lovely flip-flops (or "slippers" as Willie calls them) and they're pretty close to being shoeless. I have several assorted colors because I'm into high fashion as much as I'm into shoes.MY HUSBAND as he really is. Will's lifting weights out in the garage while listening to "November Rain." What a stud!MY BOYS as they really are. They fell asleep in the afternoon and weren't tired tonight, so they are reading books in bed instead of sleeping. Jake likes a ton of blankets and pillows.Josh is a minimalist when it comes to bedding. (And was a bit surprised when I busted in taking pictures...)Nathan was starting to stir when this picture was quickly snapped. I can't believe I risked waking a sleeping baby!ME and it doesn't get more real than this. I taught a swim class for some girls from church today so here we've got no makeup, wet hair in a ponytail, still got the swimsuit on underneath, and I'm supposed to be working (hence the earphones)...but instead I'm blogging.
And that's the REAL me. I tag Cynthia B., Kelly M., JoAnna A., Danielle L., and anyone else who's up for a REAL challenge.

I'm gonna do it- I already took the pictures so that I don't "cheat," but I have to finish posting about my UT trip first. I'll get to it though. Fun tag!

I'm so glad you did it- it was so fun to see your beautiful (and very clean!) house. I loved the shot of Willie working out and the kids in their beds. Too bad we weren't closer; Ryan would love a weight lifting buddy. Does Reno need another pediatric dentist?

Okay, if I was as cute as you without make-up and my house was in such great shape I would love to do this tag. The state of my house this pregnancy has been scary. I'm glad you shared all this. It was fun.

Looks like you have things under control in your house! I love summer when you feel totally great wearing a swim suit all day & no makeup....gotta love that! Thanks for tag. Now I'm a little nervous to post my pics!
