This week's theme was "I dreamed a dream". As themes go, this was a little hard for me. And, I only took photos of one thing this week...me. I have been really bad about getting out my camera. I think this happens to me every year about this time when I start to hibernate through the winter. It's hard to get up and take pictures when you are wrapped in a blanket! Back to my dream. Okay...this is going to sound incredibly lame, but I have always wanted to get my nose pierced. Not exactly a dream, but just a sort of, "I think that looks so pretty, I think I'd like to do it" type of thing. Last week I mentioned something about it on Facebook and I had 3 other friends admit they'd always wanted one too. So, we planned it and it happened! Well, one of us couldn't make it, but the rest of us were off to the tattoo parlor to do it. Yep, all 3 of us 'moms' have always wanted to do it. I forgot to take my camera with me (what is with me and forgetting my camera all the time?) but my friend got some shots with her phone...and she sent them to my phone...only thing is now I can't figure out how to get them off my phone and onto the computer (I don't have a smart phone). Oh well... Let's just say that it is not exactly glamorous, okay? It didn't hurt that bad and I really do love it. And it doesn't bother you when you blow your nose...that is the most often asked question I've gotten. I'm sure half of you (maybe more) think I'm insane, but I don't really care what you think. That's the beauty of waiting until you are in your 30's to do something like this. You know what you want and you don't care about being judged for it. And I know I won't keep it in forever, but at least now, when I'm 50 I won't say...why didn't I ever do that? Why was I so worried about what other people were going to think? And that makes it worth it.
I'm probably going to switch it out to something smaller...but I have to wait 8 weeks before I can. Ugh. Oh, and I just realized that next week's theme is self-portrait. I am really going to have to get more creative on that one...because I'm sick of photos of myself already!
