Pic Spam!

Text before I blow your Dial-Ups to hell. So I was SUPPOSED to be flying up to Ann Arbor, Michigan today to visit my BF (who I miss TERRIBLY), but since I left the travel plans to my husband (I'm using his miles) he didn't pick the weekend I asked for. Guess when I'm flying out? EASTER WEEKEND. And it's a done deal. So, have fun kids! Dye those eggs with daddy! Not that I'm a Christian, my husband is - well, kind of - but the kids like Easter. But: I get to be in cold, blowy, ugly weather! For four days! Ha. It's going to be near 80 here. *cries* But I get to see my BF in the whole world, so life is good.


In gearing up for my trip, I've been going through photo albums and laughing about pictures. My BF's mom is my dream mom, and we like to hash out how terrible my mother is. (An aside: Joyce kills me, because she is my dream mom, too) No seriously, my mother is a HORRIBLE person. Without going into ugliness - that's not what this journal is about - I give you pictures of OMG and funny and awww.


Here's my older sis and me with our dog, Muffin. Do you see his eyebrow??? We left the back gate open one day and he ran away. Sad day in my house, let me tell you.


Ooh! Here's me being hammysilly at my wedding reception. My ex and I eloped in Vegas (classy) then had an Open House when we got back to Texas one month later. (Shh! I'm four months pregnant in this picture. Err, that's ecru, not white. Hee!)


Oh My God. My mom is wearing HER wedding dress to MY wedding reception. WOW!! Look at me!! Now, to be fair, it is from her third wedding. Or was it her fourth? HA HA HA!! In case you wondered where my self-centeredness comes from? That'd be my mom.


Here's me and my awesome sisters, both are on LJ. My older sister had just whispered to me: "Did you see Mom is wearing her wedding dress? Why is she such a bitch?" I think my younger sister is wondering why my mom is telling dirty jokes at my WEDDING reception in a very loud voice so people will look at her and comment on how lovely she looks. In her white wedding dress. At my reception. Confidential to Breath: I miss your long, blonde hair. Just sayin'...


I found this pic of me and my ex with my boy on a hike trip. I was about four or five months pregnant in this pic, too. Don't take pictures of me. It makes me pregnant. Huh? I am standing on a boulder, BTW. My ex was 6' 8". Niiice. Too bad he wasn't.


On my own... This is nine months after our divorce, just me and the two kiddos. GAH!! Aren't they the cutest?? I miss short hair. So easy to do...


Hee!! One of my favorite pics of me and Mr. Stoney. This was a fun office party in the CFO's backyard. They had a huge fort and swing set for people with kids, and fun stuff for grownups. Whee! I think this was the first official "outing" of us as a familial unit. I didn't expose my kids to men I dated (not many, it isn't fun dating as a single mom) but he and I knew we weren't going anywhere. Isn't he the CUTEST??? He came home today!! Weekend with my baby...

Pics!! I want to see pics of everyone. Indulge me. Make it a meme or something. Post a picture of yourself from ten years ago or whatever. Do it! I'm giddy and hyper today. Been walking a minimum of 6 miles everyday, feeling strong and healthy again. Sun is shining, the tank is clean... Life is good. *muwah!* to my Flist!

OMG, aren't my kids so CUTE??? My little boy breaks my heart in that one with the cuteness and the big brown eyes.

I was so happy to find that picture of my sister and me with our dog Muffin. He had laugh lines around his mouth, too. I'll show you in the accompaning icon.

*hugs you, too!*

Fist of all , I love you.
Second , I adore your pictures. You were a delicious ( pregnant )little bride . I like your expression on the pic with your oldest boy strapped on.
But the one with your two cute kids is adorable.
And i wholeheartedly agree : the last one is so lovely. You look so happy with Mr. Stoney , you are really good together and it shows.

*Need to kiss you now Laura.*


I found a pic of me when I was five but I didn't put it on the computer yet. Will do. And pictures when i met my love ( sixteen ! )

OOOOH!!! I wanna see pics of you at 16!! I LOVE that picture of me and my husband - we are practically LEVITATING with happiness at finding each other.

(He had a bad first marriage, too. We really appreciate each other, having experienced the worst type of relationships)

Pictures make me so happy! When crazydiamondsue first came out to visit/meet me, the first thing we did was pull out photo albums. She brought hers. Hee!! I'm going to have to dig out my yearbooks now. Shaved head Laura! *cries at the ugliness*

Squeeeee! What a great picspam post! You're so beautiful, and your mom is such a wanker. Heh. That dress, O.M.G. Poor, attention-whoring mom.

How old were you when you got married the first time? Not very, I'm guessing. And how tall are you? 6'8"?!!? Cripies. I would literally have a view of his crotch. Make up your own punchline to that.

Your kids are adorable! And look quite frightened in that picture. Who's taking the shot - Freddy Krueger? Your mom? Hee.

Your husband is just as adorable!!!!! You look very happy in that pic - no wonder it's one of your favourites.

PS You look like Elle McPherson in that wedding pic that was possibly taken in the bathroom. :0)

Oh, my mom is HILARIOUS in her awfulness. Strap a Southern-Belle attitude with a dash of Texas-twang, and that's her. Nice. It's a wonder the three of us turned out.

I was 22 when I married the first time. I LOVED how tall he was. "View of his crotch." Let's just say he wore a size 15 shoe. Too bad he was an idiot. And unable to learn. *insert dick joke here*

I'll say this about my kids: they used to be afraid of getting their pictures taken (not sure why - maybe they know they lose a bit of their SOUL) but they do not have that fear any longer. Total hams.

I am LAUGHING at the EMcP comment. I have seen her in real life and she's GROSS. A skeleton with shiny skin. I am far from a stick, I'll tell you that. But I take the compliment with thanks and a giggle.

Isn't she awful? But in a hilarious, lemme tell you a story way, to be sure. (Um, I really liked how tall my ex was - I felt TEENY) But kissing Mr. Stoney is far easier. Plus? The blue eyes of GORGEOUSNESS. Like, JM blue. You know, the color of the sea after a storm? *snerk*

I can't wait to see your pics!!!

What zyrya said. You and Mr. Stoney are so gorgeous it's unearthly. Your kids are adorable, of course. Your mom, however, is one of those women Mr. Spikefan and I call a Piece of Work. Some P.O.W.'s are otherwise normal women who are a little (or a lot) overdone. Then there's someone who will wear her wedding dress to her own daughter's wedding. Thank you for a good laugh.

Now that you've opened the photo invitation to photos of any age, I will oblige you with the few I have digitized. See my LJ soon.

You are so pretty, Laura. You have a beautiful smile, and pretty hair. ::hugs tight::

And there isn't much more in this life that can top your own mother coming to your wedding in HER wedding dress. Um, her third wedding's dress. Now, would it be tacky if she wore her SECOND wedding dress to her fifth wedding? Or should you stick with evens to evens and odds to odds? HA!!

Thanks, Anne. Mr. Stoney is a BABE and I heart him, underline. And you are so right about the picture after the divorce being a "free at last, free at last!" feeling. I used to joke that I went on a diet and lost 270 pounds. (meaning him)

Saw your pics! And I am LAUGHING at the thought of Mr. S dealing with hyper kids. What do you want to bet that his folks get a call and a surprise visit while I'm gone? :-D

Hey, cute pics. I got married in Vegas too! Had we talked about that yet? Seems like I'd remember that.
Me? Little Graceland, minister from the Church of Positive Living. I'll try to put up a pic but it's blurry. And I apparently make a certain particularly weird face when walking down the aisle with big ole fringey Elvis.

Mar. 11th, 2005 02:32 pm (UTC)
SCT, I DID TOO!!! Oh my god. I came thiiiiis close to getting married by the Elvis impersonator, but felt that eloping, being knocked up, and not having all my family there was shame enough to heap upon them. But I wanted to SO badly.

HA HA HA!! I had on FUGLY tan pantyhose (at my mother's behest)with a simple, short linen dress for the elopment, and my thighs look HUGE. I call it my MaryLou Retton look. EW! But my hair was nice...

I can't wait to laugh about that on Sunday!

No wonder your kids are so cute. You were adorable as a kid too.

Your mom in that dress? Enough said. So you grew up and did good in spite of her, I think.

OK, I love your hair, long or short. I've got this mess of brown/red/whatever hair that is so weird. Eek. Yours is great.

Mr. Stoney? He is totally handsome. And so obviously a great catch. So many great pics.
stoney321
Mar. 11th, 2005 02:27 pm (UTC)
I have hair issues, though. I LOVE it super short, but when it's growing out, I look very odd and disproportionate. Really long or really short. I'm debating whether or not to hack it all off again. (It looks like my wedding pic - oh my god, that was 10 years ago!)

And thanks for saying such nice things. Ever time I see that pic of her with her "up-do" and wedding dress, I just crack up. Center of attention... No matter what! Hee!!

I can NEVER have enough Kaka Ako pictures. Gimmie!!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
