MIA

I was MIA yesterday cause it was my birthday...or as I am going to start referring to it barfday. I am just so over birthdays and getting older...I hate it! But my good friend Heather told me, "You're 28, you're hot...who cares" God Bless her silly little almost 24 year old self.

I got my presents from my hubby a few months ago...tickets to see Ben Folds which was amazing times 10 and a new phone, so I just spent the whole day hanging from him which was awesome. That was a crazy run-on sentence. Am I the only one who feels birthdays should be a mandatory day off of work?

I told myself I was going to take a self portrait every birthday...I lasted all of 5 minutes. I really hate my picture being taken (so, so not photogenic..I am way cuter in person lol)...add into the mix having to get everything set up, run back and forth to the tripod...it's not good.

This was the best of the 10...see my exuberant "I love this!" smile ;) Or is it more of a "I am so done with this" smirk...which I guess is my usual smile lol

Next year I should have my hubby take my picture cause I actually love the ones of me he has taken in the past.

In fact I am going to post one he took a couple of months ago to redeem myself...and I can cause it's my birthday so I get to do whatever I want ;)

What are you talking about, girl? You are totally photogenic! Love your shots! And Happy Birthday! I agree...birthdays should be a mandatory day off of all work!

CindyTykie said...

Happy Birthday! I love your self-portraits and I think it's a great idea to have your picture taken every year on your birthday.

Kristina said...

Raechel said...

I love your hair! And you are adorable! I wouldn't be bashful about flaunting a smile if I were you:)

Melissa said...

Happy Birthday! You look great in our shots! Now me on the other hand, well we won't go there. I too hate birthdays, but you're not even close to being old enough to hate them yet ;)

Mom2Drew said...

What a great studio portrait!!! Oh, I can hear heather saying that BTW. You look dang cute.

bugg said...

You look great; Love the smirk. I'll be 35 this year and am dreding it. brother who is trunning 20 like to remind me of when he was half my age he was 15 and I was 30 the same year. Not a great way to start of the next decade.

Sharon said...

Happy Birthday and you look marvelous!!

Happy Birthday! I wish I was 28 again! The top picture is a great picture.

Becky said...

First of all--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
Second of all--you are way too hard on yourself. You are gorgeous!!
Third of all--try not to be bummed about getting older. Think of the alternative.
Fourth of all--(and I'm sure you'll hear this from a lot of us) 28 is so young. I'm going to be 42 next month. In my head I'm stuck at 20 (maybe 12 some days), although I look at my hands and realize they're old lady hands,and it's a reality check. A mofo reality check, I tell ya.

Keva said...

Anita said...

Happy birthday, Bobbi!! You are a young thing, lucky girl. I like your self-portrait; I think you did a great job. But--I think the one your DH took just rocks. I remember when you posted it in POTD.

As a first time reader of your blog I just had to leave a comment. Not only are YOU beautiful but your whole family is!! LOVE LOVE the shots you've gotten of your guys!!

God bless your silly little 28 year old self! And this is from a almost-twice-your-age-and-proud of it woman! You are stunningly beautiful, but don't know it, and don't dismiss me as old, and not knowing what I'm talking about! Happy birthday!PS. . . most women get over the age-thing and start thinking our age-hating culture is stupid, once you hit 40s. And research shows that woman are a LOT happy with their lives in their 40s and 50s, but you'd never know it from tv/facebook/movies/songs etc.
