Self-Portrait: Lisa

As much as I hate pictures of me, here I am! Like many others, I am always SO critical of how I look in pictures - something is always wrong! And I took about 30 tonite trying to get one that I could live with - so yeah, here I am!

My name is Lisa. As I said before, I have 3 kids (ages 6, 4, and my "baby" will be 3 in just 3 days!) and 1 on the way (coming end of May/first of June, whenever she/he decides to - and yes, it is a surprise!). I've been married to my hubby Rick for just over 7 years. He is a civil engineer and LOVES what he does a little too much sometimes! We've lived in "Happy Valley", Utah for 3 1/2 years now.

Beginning next week I will go from FT SAHM to FT Working Mom (is there a code for that?!) as a secretary for an accountant during tax season. I've pretty overwhelmed by it, but it will be good for more than one reason. I have recently started scrapbooking and my goal is to have all of my children's first year of life finished by the end of this year! I also like to make hair bows for my 2 girls, love playing tennis, tap dancing (while prego!), and reading.

I know how you feel about being overly critical of your own pictures, but let me just tell you what I see! I see really pretty hair, it's obvious that it's naturally blond and so beautiful and shiny. I also see a really cute nose and perfect shaped lips-- I'm always worried about what my lips look like in pictures, and you PASS!!! Lastly, your eyelashes are to die for, I have serious eyelash envy!!!!

Good luck with your new job!

Lisa is one of my dear friends from the teenage years and she truly is so beautiful! She has such a cute little figure and gorgeous hair! Hope things go okay at your job Lis--it's a lot on your plate, but I think you're going to do great!

You tap dance while pregnant?? And you're going to work full time with 3 little ones??? You are the WOMAN! :) Cute picture!

LeAnn and Cris said...

Wow! tap dancing while prego. That is awesome!!! Great picture.

Lisa said...

Ok, you girls are SO nice!! Like I am about to cry reading these wonderful comments!! (Pregnancy hormones are driving me CRAZY!!!!)
Katy - I just had to laugh at the "perfectly shaped lips"! Just before I was married, I cleaned house for an old lady and she told me very matter-of-factly that my lips were uneven and I needed to use a lip liner to make them even! Ever since then I am SO critical of my uneven lips! :) As for the eyelashes - guess that would be my wonderful Avon mascara (oh yeah, I sell Avon on the side, too!) Thank you for all the sweet comments!
Rachel - I love ya! But um . . . a "sweet little figure"? Thanks for the laugh!
And Mindy & LeAnn - I started tap for the first time ever when I was prego with #3, took too much time off and just got back into it a few weeks ago. My balance is definitely off, but it is so much fun and I love it - a great work out for anyone!

hahaha!!! Oh that's too funny, Lisa! the reason I'M so self-conscious about my lips is because in high school- aka "land of mean"- someone told me that my school pictures looks funny because my top lip was thicker than my bottom lip--- hence it looks like i was punched in the top lip!!!! geeze, talk about being scarred for life! Avon-- LOVE Avon... my mom used to sell for them (until she realized i was "long term borrowing" her inventory... oops!)
