The chubby girl on the left is me. The not chubby girl on the right is Older Sister. We were running to the finish at the USAF 5k in September. Older sister beat me by a few seconds. She’s beaten me at three different races over the past year. I thought she’d like photographic proof of her win so this is one of her Christmas presents from me.
It’s not the best picture of us but it’s now one of my favorites.
Prince Charming and I had pictures taken at Christmas because The Mothers had requested a new portrait without the doggies . . .
Being the good children we were, we decided to surprise The Mothers with new portraits . . .
I had a coupon . . . and a plan to only buy what was on the coupon . . . I made Prince Charming promise that he would not let me get “sucked in” to the sales hype and buy all the pictures and spend a small fortune on pictures. He smiled sweetly and promised to protect me from myself.
All the pictures were wonderful and it was hard to stick to my plan – but Prince Charming kept his promise and saved me from myself.
Fast forward to shortly after Prince Charming’s accident. And now I feel horrible that I didn’t buy all the pictures . . . they were the last pictures of us together . . . oh the guilt was horrible.
I debated for a while about whether or not to try and get the rest of the pictures . . . and I kept thinking “they’re the last pictures of us together” . . . so I called the studio . . . and explained the situation . . . and luckily they still had all the images!!
I just wanted the CD to have the images . . . but that wasn’t how the studio did things . . . I had to buy a package to get the CD . . . which I happily did!
I now have more printed photos that I’ll ever know what to do with . . . and I have the priceless CD with every photo taken during that session . . .
And I can hear Prince Charming laughing his butt off at me over it!!
I thought I’d post a current picture of me and Prince Charming. There have been so many lately that it’s hard to find my favorite. This one was taken about a week ago.
Ain’t we cute?
When Prince Charming and I re-started our romance three years ago, I mentioned how sad it was that there are no pictures of us from before. He said he promised that there would be plenty of pictures this time.
And like he always does . . . he kept his promise!
