Bucket list disappointment.......ha!

Ya know that bucket list some of you have?  I personally have never made one, but over the summer I did think it would be fun to ............get my picture taken with our mayor.  I know, I know, its not like others who say they want to run a marathon in every state or want to go skydiving, tight rope walking, or even take a trip to the moon (ha! I bet somebody has that written down on some could happen right??) Nope, nothing fancy here; just a picture with the mayor.

He kind of had a lot of fun with it over the summer!  It seemed that every where he went people wanted to take a selfie with him and then they would post the pic on Twitter or Instagram. Well, I guess I wanted to be part of that train ride too....or train wreck?

Needless to say it didn't work out.

Not really a "sad face" moment ~ more like a "thumbs down" ~ because I just never went to the same city events that he attended or I simply got there after he had already come and gone.

But I survived. 

Then a couple of days ago my friend told me he was coming to our Cross Country "home" meet.

What???!!! Can you believe the first thing that crossed my mind was, "Finally, I can get my picture!".  And he announced he will be running for a Senate seat next year so not only can I say I got my pic with our mayor but our soon to be Senator too.

Owen, Mayor Matt Little, and me.

(why then was it a disappointment?)

We all know we can take good pictures and we can take bad pictures.....This has got to be one of my WORSE pictures of all time!!!  I mean SERIOUSLY? I am sporting my "Course marshal" neon lovely hair is falling out (but only on one side) and I guess I am storing nuts for the winter in my cheeks.  Treats, sweets and BEER OH MY! It sometimes takes seeing a photo of yourself to realize one may have just indulged in one OR two too many over the course of the summer.   


But because it is reality and I like to keep things real around here I had to post it and share my photo anyway.   

Have you shared any "bad" photos just because "Reality sucks?!" ha!

This is the perfect example of how we are more critical of ourselves than other people are of us.

I looked at this picture and thought- she looks pretty, as always! I think you look great! It's a fun picture.

Your mayor looks really young!

She did it and then I did it again.....

For as long as Makenzie has been in Cross Country she and the girls have had a tradition of drawing a fish and cross tattoo on the ankl...
