Wordful Wednesday-Bloggy Boot Camp Phoenix

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.

I made a big announcement yesterday. I revealed the fact that I went on a big girl field trip this past weekend.

In layman’s terms, this means that I went away for the weekend, without my husband or kids. I’ve never done that before (except for once, and that time doesn’t count).

I came home with a dearth of photos. Of the 5 that I took, only one turned out. The others look something like this:

Instead of being annoyed that my pictures are terrible, I’ll just display it proudly, or better yet, have a contest. It’ll be a who’s who kind of contest, with a twist.

The contest is: Guess who is in the picture with me?

I’ll even give you a couple of hints:

1. If you do not know this one, then you don’t know me.

2. She is pregnant with #3 and blogs at a site with 2 M’s in the title.

3. She’s really NOT losing it.

4. Her blog title sounds a bit like a cartoon.

5. She has a few blogs, but one rhymes with gyp funkie.

If you’d like to send me an email (sevenclowncircus@yahoo.com) with your guesses, I’ll reward the winner(will pool the emails with the correct answers and draw one winner) with a $20 gift card to somewhere.

We are in the last few days of the $100 Barnes & Noble Giftcard Giveaway.

    Angie,

    My old (OLD – almost eight years) camera started behaving crazy like that and I thought I needed a new camera, so my husband bought me one. I handed it off to my daughter and a few weeks later it started behaving properly and her pictures looked great. It turned out that I guess it needed a rest?

    My suggestion is it is time to ask for a new camera. Although it probably won’t be necessary, be sure to have the “pouty face.”
