The Glamour Shot Promise

*UPDATED TO ADD THE REALLY COOL BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM... AND TO CHEW OUT THOSE OTHER BLOGGERS WHO PROMISED TO LINK UP... WIMPS ;)



Ever say something that you wish you could just backspace and make disappear?

Girls – you gotta back me up here.

I let my mouth write a check that my tail don’t want to cash, LOL.

But several of you have agreed to link up your own Glamour Shots after my stupid big-haired, chunky-earringed promise.  And if you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know I always hold  ya to your word (cuz apparently, I’m good for mine, even when it leads to royally embarrassing moments).

So I’ll start you off easy.

Here’s my little sister.

Emphasis on little.

Just how old does she look?

Yes, Ju will majorly stew over this, but she moved away so she can’t kick my butt in person anymore.

Though I happen to think she looks pretty cute and they went easy on the hair.

Cuz when they don’t go easy on the hair, it is not a pretty thing.  Not pretty at all.

Which is why I’m actually thankful that they did a dark background that caused my hair to disappear here and made it look like a uber-oval floating head was resting on a classy circa-1992 teal glove.  (Sorry, scan quality).

(You’d think this would be enough humiliation of its own, but oh no Mr. Daddy, you just had to push your luck)

I couldn’t find the black leather jacket ones - I probably burned them ten years ago - but here I am in all my big-hair glory.

*chirp chirp*

awkward

(Dear, I think this is beyond even)

GlamourShotsRach2

Why, why, WHY would you do that to a chick?!?!

And the only answer I can think of is, because they could.

Hey, at least I should just be thankful that they didn’t expose me to the entire mall, right?

Your turn!  If you’ve got Glamour Shots or any kind of classic Texas-pageant-queen photos (sorry Texas chicks, it’s a hard rep to shake), link ‘em up and we’ll share the comment love!

(Please, please, please don’t make me stand here all by myself in my metallic shawl getup…)

And just for bragging rights - you can grab this awesome button Shana made for me!  Are we cool or what?!

I think you are pretty : )

GunDiva said...

Love the pictures :)

Sorry, but I don't have any to share. Not that I'm horribly disappointed; if *had* had them done, my kids would have found them and would never let me down.

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Honestly, you're beautiful, big hair and all!!!

City girl turned Country Girl said...

AWWWWW I LOVE IT!!!!! Okay a promise is a promise!!! *Going to dig mine up now*!!!

I think you look GORGEOUS!!!! Your sis looks about 12?!

HeatherOz said...

Oh, I have seen WAY worse! The teal glove is hilarious but the 2nd shot is quite beautiful! And your sister is adorable!

Shana said...

I was going to say, you coul dhave been on Dallas...lol. Actually they are not that bad. I am still looking for the one from when I was 15 (i looked like I was at least 21 and had a shady past) but I will go ahead and link up the one I do have on hand which I actually kind of like. But that is because i told them how I wanted things done...lol. I am controlling like that. I will seriously look for the other ones though.

Shana said...

hey I made a button for this. I will email it to you.

Shana said...

OK you can get the button off my blog. It is kind of funny lol. But the one I still have to find I have the blue shiny stuff...lol. Like sapphire blue. I have got to find that.

Foursons said...

OK Rachel, I'm gonna be nice. These aren't the worst GS's I've seen. I've seen much, much worse. But technically speaking, what were they thinking? You are completely right about the floating face! Hahahaha

And I've got no pageant or GS photos. Sorry this TX gal must not live up to our reputation.

Brandi said...

I'm with Heather... I've seen way worse too! I don't have any, or I'd surely link up (yeah, right). I never had a desire to do Glamour Shots 'cause I was a little weird about people touching my face and applying makeup.

WOW! That is some BIG hair, but the makeup is tasteful. Usually, they do hooker makeup. I think the pics are nice... I did giggle about the gloves, though. ;)

Kmama said...

Okay, so umm, is it an unwritten rule that you CANNOT smile for these pics? LOL!!!

The teal glove had me rolling.

Overall, they are nice pics though. I always wanted to do them, but am now so glad that I didn't! LOL

Dana-from chaos to Grace said...

Ummm...oh yes...insert MY face limp curls...that could be me.

Totally.

Complete with teal glove.

And leather jacket. :X

K- floortime lite mama said...

Rach you loook so beautiful to me big hair and all

K- floortime lite mama said...

oh and on your last post - sooooo funny BTW - jewelz is just such a doll
Different strokes for different folkd though - I never get the attraction of older men
My dh is a little older than me - 7 years - and afcourse when we met that felt like a lot - becasue I was 20 - but I really thought it was a huge advantage -he was and is so much much cooler

PennsylvaniaBelle said...

dangit...I have some good ones...somewhere! I'll have to get back to you with them. That will motivate me to clean out my closet!

Tiffany said...

Confession time - growing up, I always wanted one of those shots. Always. And Mom never let me have them. Now, I am grateful. But, if we did "your worst school photo" day, I have plenty of material...did I just say something I will regret later? :)

{Kimber} said...

I think that you look beautiful!

Michelle Pixie said...

Your sister looks like a baby! And you {although beautiful as always!} girl the teal glove and the 'I have so many other better things to be doing right now' look in your eyes did it for me...Hehehehehehe!! You are such a good sport!

Crystal @ Semi-Crunchy Mama said...

I've seen some pretty scary Glamour Shots -- yours are actually not as overdone as I was expecting. I remember being in the restroom at the mall one time when two girls ran in and started desperately trying to wash off the layers of make-up that had been plastered on their faces for thier photos. It was horrifyingly amazing...

Susan said...

That second shot is one you should be proud of. I think it's beautiful!

Jewelz said...

Rach, what are you staring at me like that for?????????
{{{covers a little ##snorfle##}}}
Lawdy Lawdy Girrrrrrrrrrl...I thought My Mr Volcyum draped in a red bow was something that was gonna take my breath away...wait, let me...catch my ....breath! NO, no....I was NOT laughing, honest!

One word and one word only

Fire Wife Katie said...

Lol, those are awesome!

K- floortime lite mama said...

OMG the comments are so much fun to read on this post
oh and I meant that I never understand the attraction for "younger" men. I have always thought older men were far more cooler

Leiah said...

Girl - This Texas girl loves her some big ol' hair even if she does live in Louisiana now! You know what we say, "Jack it to Jesus!" and "the higher the hair, the closer to God" among many others. Confession: I still roll my hair on hot rollers every morning and it's about 4" past the middle of my back. I've also heard Al Gore's on a mission to personally blame me for the hole in the ozone layer but I refuse to give up my hair spray. And what brand do I use? Big Sexy Hair of course! I will have to see if I can find the goofiest GS you've ever seen - they put a captains hat on my and had me salute. Seriously?

Shana said...

You couldn't find the button because i took it off because nobody was using it and I didn't want to seem like the only dork...lol. I put it back in the post and it links back to your blog too.

City girl turned Country Girl said...

Hey now....We'd better see some link ups on this! I did my time *giggles*!!

Tina said...

So funny, I remember in high school everyone was going to the mall to get glamour shots. I guess I can actually thank my mom now for not taking me!!
However, you do look so cute, big hair and all!!

wife.mom.nurse said...

oh my gosh! LOVE it :)

You crack me up.

Timeless beauty :)

Ok, I will email you now about May :)

Shana said...

I linked up too. Where are the others. I know other people had these done too. Don't be scared we will be gentle...lol.

robin said...

Yes...I've been waiting to see these!!! And you know, I'm disappointed. I would have thought they'd be as horrendous as the ones I saw that were done of my friends back then. Yours is not bad at all!! OK, the glove (lol!) but your make-up is awesome and you have such a beautiful face (I am envious of your nice chin as I have practically none!) I never got any done or I'd have posted mine...sorry.

Kameron said...

I'm still looking for my pictur! I found one of my mom (we did it together) and if I can't find mine by this wekend I will just post that one. it is still hilarious, even though it's not me!

Emily said...

Woah, Rach, you NAILED that sexy, smoldering look!

Killlashandra said...

Wow girl I'm impressed! I've never had a glamor shot taken. The closet I could even get would be portrait shots with my brother and I so don't think those count especially when you 10 and 11. LOL

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

Oh lordy...how did I miss this?!
I have a Glamour shot - well actually my mother has it, proudly displayed, in the room the boys sleep in, I'm surprised it has yet to give them nightmares.

I might have to steal it from her :)

On a side note...you look lovely....

That last photo is very....ummmmm....Dynasty :)

Farmers Wife said...

I think the pics are lovely....glamour shots are great, I really love them! Must dig out some of my older ones...for a giggle of course!

Stacy said...

You look very pretty!! They did go big with the hair, didn't they??

You needed to give me some advance notice there, lady. Last week was probably my busiest week in a long while, so I don't think I could have dug them out. I will try to find them this week, though...promise. ;)
