My Peeps

“If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you'll be going, 'you know, we're alright. We are dang near royalty.” ~ Jeff Foxworthy


That's me with the "parentals."

After spending an evening discussing life, politics, religion and family with an egyptian, a russian and a jamaican (I am not kidding!) I began thinking about my the type of family I came from.

Many times I have tried to explain different aspects. I have talked about my super-creative, messy, and sometimes "mouthy" mother. I have discussed my hardworking, super quiet, father. I have shared with you the trials and tribulations of my sister and her daughter (my Autumn.) I have even shared a few bits of information about my egyptian.

I have shared pics and random stories about my friends, my co-workers and my activities. I have pointed out my favorite "bloggy friends" and my favorite websites.

But when it really comes down to it - who are my peeps? If a picture tells a thousand words.. then what in the world are my pictures trying to say??

















These pictures, hands down, win the worst pictures of all time. Where else can you go from "caught in the moment" to bad hair/clothing choice to "what kind of face are you making" to.. "seriously, you had your sweet, conservative muslim husband pose with two hussies from Hooters?"

I added everything from pics of me as a child to pics of me in Halloween costumes...

So - I ask myself (and you) again - what do these pictures say??

So, I heard this joke once .. and egyptian, a russian and a jamaican walk into a bar ... (KIDDING! But your first line cracked me up alone... what a wonderful world we live in, huh?) LOVE the photos you have shared - these pictures, to me, show a really fun life, Nicole. Full of lots of adventures, a LOT of laughs, and some really great people. Keep living, my friend! That's what we are here to do!

Loved this post and the throw-back memories you included via photos! I would have to say that you are lovely both inside and out. You are not afraid to let your hair down and simply enjoy life. Good for you!!!

Mitzi - or would that be "Hold my hair "up" with Rave #3 or Aquanet - circa 1989. LOL
