I got a haircut on December 20th.  Here’s what it looked like!  As an aside, I’m wearing my glasses because when I got down to my last pair of contacts before needing to return to the eye doctor for a checkup, I tore a contact lens.  Augh!  Of course, I put off going to the eye doctor for several weeks, so I was stuck in my glasses in the interim.

It’s self-portrait time again.  I have lost 47 pounds since June 17.  Yippee!

My birthdaySeptember 11th is, of course, a meaningful day for everyone. It’s also my birthday. Because I couldn’t really go out to dinner, I chose to go scrapbooking with friends last night. I ended up spending more time talking than scrapbooking!

My friend Stephanie took this photo of me to commemorate the occasion and to serve as my “self-portrait” for the day.

Self-Portrait + New Fence!

August 11Eleven months after the arrival of Hurricane Ike, we finally got our fence repaired! I’m certain that the homeowners in the ritzy houses across the levee at the rear of our house must be thrilled to look out their back windows and not see our jack-o-lantern fence anymore.

Because it’s also the 11th of the month (and exactly 31 days until my birthday!), it is self-portrait day. For once, I didn’t mind being in the photo. I’ve lost about 25.5 lbs. in 7.5 weeks. I’m feeling great, though this photo shows that I need to work on firming up my triceps!

March 17Since I pre-empted my self-portrait on the 11th of the month, I figured I better do a make-up. I took this in the garage elevator at my office on my way to the car after work. You can’t tell from the picture, but I do have a green sweater on underneath my suit in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

“Self”-Portrait #3 and a Bonus Photo

February 11 #1Today is the 11th, so it’s self-portrait day. Peter has been wanting to get in on the Project 365 action, so he was my guest photographer today. Jacob, of course, wanted to be in the photo and is actually holding up bunny ears behind my head, but Peter cut that part out (not sure if that was intentional or not!).

February 11 #2Also, we paid an early morning visit to the police station today. We missed the trip when Peter’s Cub Scout den visited the police station, and we’re trying to get all of his Tiger Cub requirements completed, so we scheduled a make-up tour for just the 4 us this morning before school. We got to look all around the police department, including one of the patrol cars and the detention cells. The officer giving us the tour put the SWAT gear on the boys, which made for a great photo op! I don’t quite know how I’m going to fit an extra picture into my scrapbook for this week, but I couldn’t resist posting this picture of them at the police station.
