Scared Straight

We finally did it.

 We took real, professional family pictures
with our friend, Jason Ward, earlier this week.

 I love these of Jack.

 He pulled through for us.
Smiled, laughed and performed.

And I am scared straight.
There's nothing like a good photo shoot
to give you a good dose of reality
and a swift kick in the booty.

No more excuses.
No more...
 reasons why I can't.
 I'll start tomorrow.
I'm too busy.
I'm too tired.
I don't feel like it.
and the list goes on...

Back to saying no.
Back to counting calories.
Back to actually using the
gym membership I pay for.
Back to drinking water.


  1. You and your family are beautiful! Wow! LOVE this photo shoot, Erin!

  2. awesome family pictures! your boy is DARLING! oh my word, those pics with the guitar!!! super cute.
