  • you are so awesome, lotus! i heart you. :)
    that last picture is just beautiful. seriously.
    and i need to do this challenge soon myself. btw, mine should also be titled that because my morning breath is enough to kill a horse. ;)

  • Yay, Lotus! You look good no matter what.

    I haven’t technically done this, but I also kind of feel like I have because my self-portraits are pretty much never with any make up and pretty much exactly how I look, bad hair and all. In fact, my hair probably looks better right out of bed than it does all day ;)

    Still, maybe I’ll do this some morning. If not, I’m still glad you did.

    If I had a blog I would NEVER do this. wouldn’t want to scare away all my readers with my pillow creased cheeks and scarecrow hair, not to mention the slitted eyes trying to keep out the glare of daylight.

    March 19, 2008
  • is it wrong to say I think I love you? :)

    I think that my best and worst quality is that I look PRECISELY THE SAME.

    doesnt bode well for my daytimelook but its pretty ok for my firstthinginmorninggrabbingtoddler appearance.

  • It’s too late for me to do anything about this today, but I can definitely participate tomorrow. The only thing I fear (cause I am at my most adorable in the AM-then it’s all down hill) is the flash. Cause I wake up while it is still dark. Wait a second, maybe that is why I look so cute hmmmmm…..

    If I looked as good as you the first thing in the morning I would do it. I, however, look like I am coming off a 3 day drunk, so I won’t be sharing. I have scared my family, they mention if I feel as bad as I look, I really should go back to bed. Of course they won’t let me. Go figure.
