embrace the camera: dec. 16th

this week, my embracing is all about shopping with my favorite lil' lady.
want to know what all this embracing is about?  click here.

and now....it's your turn.
here are the official rules:
1.  take a picture with you and your kids/spouse/family member/pet/whatever.
2.  blog about that picture and include a link to our blog, or grab our button.
3.  link your blog post up on mr. linky below.
4.  visit the other embracers...give each other lots of compliments about how good we look with our greasy hair and sweatpants velour jogging suits on.  cause yah, we need a little boost when it's been days since our last shower.
5.  have fun!

and please, let me reinforce rule #3...please link your actual post up.  some readers come back and read old embrace the camera posts...and when you just link your blog up, they can't see the ETC post you linked up.
get it?
remember, this is not about promoting our blogs, but our greasy faces, mkay?
now, go get your embrace on.

  7. precious! Two very pretty girls! I can't wait to go shopping with my girlie when she's bigger...she better like it! :)

  8. p.s. can I just add to the above, that I feel so much better after what you said about showers coming, um, not so often. I was just trying to explain to my husband yesterday what that FEELS like! Glad other ladies understand! My pics today were totally no makeup...oh well! :)
