Well, I hate to make you all jealous. Well, actually I don’t, I rather enjoy bragging (NOT!), BUT I had a
frickin’ fantastic lunch with the fun, smart and talented jenB of jenandtonic.ca fame. Remember, I told you yesterday we were meeting for lunch?
Jen also writes a column over @ ALPHA + MOM, where she is in good company with Dooce (Dooce Plugs In) and Alice Bradley (Wonderland) and more … check it out.
It was great, Jen was just as nice as everyone says!
ME, however, I have to get a handle on the verbal diarrea … honestly. I feel like I didn’t SHUT UP! Sorry Jen. Some folks drink to much and feel remorseful, NOT ME, I talk too much and feel remorseful. Then again, I did manage to eat every drop of my huge platter of fajitas and chips and dip and drink at least a half dozen large drinks, so maybe I did let her get in a word or two … I did, didn’t I?
You may have guessed that I have a photo phobia. I don’t like to see myself in photo’s. In my mind I am tall and slim. Pictures just bring back reality … I am actually built like a brick shithouse. All that said, it seems rather ridicules. Lately, as my photography ‘hobby’ has developed (I hated taking pictures until just recently), I have realized that I have no pictures with me and my family. We don’t have even one family picture. The last formal picture I had take was when Hayley was two! It stops right now …
I just took a big huge breath! Breathe … mommyknows … breathe …
OK, that wasn’t so bad.
The photo was taken by our friendly waiter ‘Brad’.
Brad wasn’t this thin when we arrived, I kept him on his toes getting me diet coke refills.
Have a great weekend!

You look great! Thanks for finally showing yourself. I love to keep them running for those Diet Coke refills.
@ glittersmama ~ thanks!
I am so happy you had a great time! What a blast! You are beautiful! no reason to hide behind the camera!! I can see where your girls get their looks!
I don’t write a column at Alpha+mom, just a short blurb this month, but thanks! I couldn’t believe you had a photo phobia after we met, i MEAN LOOK AT YOU!
I think I did my fair share of talking, and honestly, I could have just listened the whole lunch. You are one amazing, loverly, smart and INTERESTING person. You are so now MY FRIEND KIM!
Man, now I want another diet pepsi.
Yeah for having fun lunch dates. I could use one of those in a bad way.
I absolutely hate having my photo taken also. But, like you, I realized there are almost NO photos of me, and have resolved to start having photos taken. It’s really hard, tho!
You look great! I can see where your kids get their looks from. And yay for girlfriend lunches and nachoes!
Now we see where Georgia gets her sparkling blue eyes from. Congratulations on having a photo taken and then taking the plunge and putting it on web. I have yet to put a photo of me on my blog. Not sure if I will or not.
I’m the same way with having pictures taken. I’ve just finally started having more done as the only ones we really have are when the girls were born… and well because we were breastfeeding most pictures have more booby in them than is appropriate to show everyone. LOL.
I sympathize. I own about 10 pictures of me from about 14 to now…it’s sad. I’ve been trying to get myself in more photos too!
Sounds like a great lunch. And I have NO IDEA why you would avoid the camera. Seriously!
It is lovely to see you! :)
You look great. I’m happy to put of face on mommyknows!
Vous Ãªtes magnifique! Vous ne devriez pas fuir les camÃ©ras. Maintenant avec le numÃ©rique, c’est facile de Â«perdreÂ» celles qui ne nous rendent pas justice. On garde les meilleures!
YOu look great!! Girls lunch out is probably just what you needed after Georgia being grumpy:)
So we finally see you!
You photograph really well. There’s no reason you should hide behind the camera, you should stay in front of it of some of those shots!
Oh, I’m the same way w/pics. You, however, look Mahvelous, darling! I LOVE those IRL meetings, glad you had fun!
At least you weren’t wanting your pic taken.. My problem is that I want pics of me and the girls and have noone to take them! My 10 second counter and I have become great companions.. The pics are much better that way then the “arms length” photos of my college days. :)
You look GREAT! Thanks for finally sharing a picture of yourself. Glad you had a good lunch!
Lovely photo. I hate being in pictures, too. You have no reason to avoid!
Well, Hello mommyknows! Nice to see you.
congratulations on stepping out of your box… it takes a lot of bravery to so that… you are very funny too!
Nice to put a face with the words!
Great to see you, you look nice.
JenB seriously is the nicest person you’ll ever meet. What a great photo!
I saw the photo over at Jen’s place. I told her that was the second photo EVER I’ve seen of you in how many years?
The new blog looks fabulous Kim!
Have a good one!
I look back through pictures and realize that we have a lot more of my husband than myself. Not necessarily because I don’t like having my picture taken, but because I am usually the one behind the camera. So, at the fair today I passed the camera off and I just hope that I look decent compared to my adorable little boy.
I’m not sure that I’ve seen a picture of you before. Your daughter, Georgia, looks just like you!!
I hate pics of myself, too. I cringe when I look at them. You both look great, though, and more importantly like you’re having fun.
I don’t really like to be IN the pictures. Which is funny, because back before I had kids, when I wasn’t so fat, I was kind of a camera hog. I would do all kinds of funny things and take pictures of me doing them. But now, it’s all about the kids.
I am not a fan of photos of myself either. I must say though, you are beautiful – don’t be afraid of the camera!
The first thing I SAID WAS you look just like Georgia!
I can see where Georgia got her stunning blue eyes!!
I don’t think I’ve ever liked myself in a photo. You both look great!
it is hard to be in the pictures when you are the one always taking them!!
Absolutely stunning picture, Kim!
You look great, I see so much of you in your kids :)
I hate pics of myself-I always try to get my husband to be in them with my son instead of me :)
I hate having my picture taken too! Except I think it’s because I just KNOW that no one in my household can take pictures as well as I can! :D
That’s where those eyes came from!
You need to stop avoiding the camera girl, you are beautiful!
Glad you had a good lunch with a fellow celebrity blogger :-)
I also hate pictures of myself! I really really hate it. I always look bigger than I feel. That’s a good thing right?
Wow, congrats at overcoming your photo phobia! You give me strength… but I don’t think I am ready yet to post one of me.
I need a lunch date with friends. I think I might just call up some friends. Thanks for the inspiration.
I heard a comedian this weekend, she was saying, if you hate a picture of yourself, bury it for 5 years, then you’ll pull it out and say, man I can’t believe I looked that good!
Then, my one year old messes witht eh computer and i don’t get to finish my comment, I don’t think you need to wait 5 years, however, you look great!
Yeah…family pictures!! I’m a picture MANIAC, so I’m sure we’ll never have a shortage of those! :)
You look great don’t be so hard on yourself.
Hmm..now you have me thinking of taking a family picture….
Brads pic is killing me :)
I agree Brad does look like a character… exactly the type of waiter who’s great to have. I hope you left him a big tip so he can put some weight back on after running for your diet cokes!
Big tips for the waiter who keeps the diet coke flowing!!
I prefer bubbly water… but I too make them earn that tip!!
Where did you go to have such a great lunch? Might this restaurant have a brother or sister in the States I could visit?
I love the new clothes on the site.
