Personal Pics

I'm going out on a very short, weak limb here and say that most women do not like pictures of there self. Recently I needed a photo of Moi to turn into to someone and I called up my cousin and before she barely answered the phone I said, "I need a favor and you are sworn to secrecy." She proceeded to ask if the favor or secret was immoral or illegal, which now as I type that I realized I should have been offended she needed to ask.  Okay, okay, okay... it was not immoral or illegal, but personal (at least temporarily, I hopefully will get to share with you all and fingers crossed it will be good news...we will see).
Anyway, back to this personal picture, I could not remember what I was suppose to do to "look better" for a picture, is it chin in, butt out??? That can't be right, maybe it's chin out and back arched, that definitely sounds WRONG. I might need to do a Pinterest search.
I am going to share a picture or two of the silly pictures she took...I said SILLY (which actually interprets to, I look HORRIBLE).
My thinking is seeing me looking like the village idiot and you all will love me more (well at least a little, anyway).
Apparently in this pic I thought standing on my tip toes, holding my car keys and tell Sally I had to peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee was a great look for me - WrOnG! 
I may or may not have mentioned in the past that birds (anything with feathers and can fly) kind of bother me. It's a funny story, picture me, a bag of Cheetos's and a bird STUCK in my hair (this is a true story), I'm screaming, The Judge is laughing so hard I'm surprised he didn't pee his pants.
Enough said?
Oh and there has been an incident with a buzzard and my car windshield.  Another time I opened my car door forgot something in the house, ran back in (left the car door open) and went to get back in my car and "Oh dear Lord", there was a bird at my gas petal.
 I think I needed a DIET COKE.

 This one is not horrible, but my hair is flying in the wind.
All in all, the odds are if you take 75 pictures you might like 3.

Don't judge, I told you I was showing the silly.
Have a great weekend.


  1. Aw you're beautiful Tikaa! But I'd have to agree that most women definitely do not enjoy taking pictures of themselves, I know I find it extremely awkward! xo

  2. These are great pics, Tikaa. Very cute; you are adorable! The first and the last would be "print worthy." ;) Of course, the fourth one probably really captured your true feelings behind this project. Hee hee
    I believe that we are our own worst enemy when it comes to things like this. It's very hard for me to be in front of the camera....Especially alone. Insert cold shiver here. :)

    Best of luck with this upcoming project. I can't wait to hear all about it!

  3. First of, you're gorgeous.
    Secondly, I am dying for your hair cut. I wish I could pull it off!

  4. I'm cracking up! But remember you did have a good experience with that owl at Horseshoe Bay!

  5. Thank everyone. Personal pictures are hard, but we had fun and taking them...the good and the bad.

    Anne, you are right about that Owl, but it was a baby.

    Lets all have a great week,

  6. Birds freak me out too! I haven't had a bad experience...or maybe I did and blocked it out? Anyway, along with what everyone else said--you look fantastic!!

  7. Funny girl. We had a good time shooting the pics. Love ya. BTW I ask everyone who swears me to secrecy if they are planning something illegal or immoral. (ha ha!)
