Roll Out the Red Carpet...

This week's guest judge at
is Ree Drummond a.k.a. The Pioneer Woman!! Not only can this woman cook, she is a fantastic photographer, writer, and gorgeous to boot!

I hate you. Okay, not really. But sort of...

Welcome, Ms. Drummond, to Oikology 101!! See how polite I am? I'll let you give me permission to call you Ree and then we'll be BFF's forever, okay??

So even though I have no chance of even placing, here's a rundown of why I will not win and why I might win (if by some miracle crappy photos win).

Reasons why I won't win:
1. I have no idea how to use my camera and it's a P&S. That's sad...
2. I got super lucky and inherited Photoshop 7.0 from my hubby's work, but I have no idea how to use it. I'm plodding through and trying to figure it out, but it's a MASSIVE undertaking!
3. All of my artistic talent lies in my voice. I can barely draw a circle and make it recognizeable, let alone put together beautifully composed photos.
4. When Midget laughs, her entire body spasms (wonder where she gets that from *whistle whistle*) and it is EXTREMELY difficult to get a picture of her!

Reasons why I might win:
1. My rapier wit and wicked sarcasm.
2. Midget is extremely charming and has the most fabulous personality!
3. Did I mention my rapier wit and wicked sarcasm?
4. All professional photographers, amateur photographers, hobbyist photographers, and enthusiast photographers experience internet outages and are unable to post their photos.

Yes, weak reasons to win, especially because I doubt Ms. Drummond will have time to read all eleventy billion links on iHeartFaces and will therefore have no opportunity to experience my wit or sarcasm. Although, she does seem to have superhuman skills, so I guess it's possible!

So, without further ado, Pioneer Woman--meet Midget!

She is a doll : ). Sometimes the very best pictures aren't perfectly composed or taken with an expensive camera- they are perfect because they are taken with love : ). Hope Ree becomes your BFF. Good luck!

Quit being silly. You rock singing AND photography! Midget gets more and more gawgeous every day.

Amanda said...

You should win for the simple fact that you have strategically thought out valid reasons as to why you should do so...

And made me chuckle in the process!

God bless-

What a great photo!!! Pure joy is being exuded her - just pure joy!!!

Thanks for your opinions. You are right on all counts. Just last night a friend told me she couldn't stand to watch Adam. I felt that way all along until the last 3 weeks or so and then I just saw something I liked (but he still sort of bugs me too). We'll have to see what plays out next week.

Thanks, again, Carrie for your visit!
