A Day With No Camera

As soon as I pulled out of the driveway this morning, I remembered that my camera was sitting on my desk, and not in my purse, where it must stay so that I may be prepared for any blog-op that comes my way. You ask, how much can you miss by not having a camera for a few hours? Well, here’s what you missed due to my lack of camera:

1. Ali and I went to vote, then headed to bible study. We’re on the interstate (ok, I guess this picture would have been unsafe to take anyway. Maybe that’s why God made sure that I left my camera at home), and Ali says from the backseat, “Mommy Help You!!!” (again with the pronoun issues).

I ask, “Help you with what, baby?”.
“Help You Sticker!!”

I look back, and she has stuck her “I Voted” sticker right in the middle of her bangs. And a VERY confused and distraught look on her face. Total photo op.

I pull it out as gently as I possibly can while driving 75 mph 70 mph down I-459. I hand it to her. A few minutes later, I hear her exclaim, “Oreo’s hair on sticker!!”. I explained to her that although loose hair IS usually Oreo’s, that was ALI’S hair.

2. This is the hard one to describe without a picture. We ate with the fam at Bluff Park Diner after Bible Study. While we were waiting for them to get there, a “cowboy” walked in – a 70-something year old man with a plaid shirt, cowboy boots, and a cowboy hat. But what I loved the most was his solution to the Fanny Pack. He had a cut-out back pocket from a pair of Levi’s jeans, including the belt loops from above it, laced into his belt like a holster. He had his checkbook and wallet in that pocket rather than in the pocket on his actual jeans. It was priceless. I tried to take a picture of it with my cell phone camera, but since I have a new phone and I haven’t used it enough, I wasn’t quick enough. So sorry.

3. And here’s one picture I did manage to snap with my cell phone:
She really likes the winter collection. I think better than she liked the Summer Catalog. She kept saying, “Red mouf!! Pink mouf!!” and “Green Eyes! Red Eyes!”. I was a bit worried about whichever makeup model had red eyes.
