PhotoStory Friday and What are You Wearing??

There is a story to to this photo. So I thought to join in PhotoStory Friday and
This picture was taken in a restroom at a church building. Now before you say EEWww, I had a very good reason to be in there. It was my Grandfathers funeral and I was feeling a little under the weather. See, I have IBS (for those of you who know it sucks, and those who don't, I would not wish it on my enemies) and when it decides to rear its ugly head, I join the porcelain goddess for awhile. There is a major amount of pain associated with this problem. I decided that since I couldn't join my family until the pain subsided, to take pictures. Not glamorous I know. I felt glam in my new
Ann Taylor suit... On sale even...$60.00 (Thank you Mom for the Birthday gift)
Harolds thick cotton tee... $25.00
Target Black Shoes... $15.00
So, stop by these hosted Friday Blogs and join in on their lives, just click on the buttons or the highlighted names up top!!

You look beautiful! Love the suit. I hope you are feeling better. I am sorry to hear about your loss as well.

Shannon said...

You look fabulous, so it's not evident you weren't feeling well!! I'm sorry about your grandfather, and about your IBS. I have battled it on and off for about 15 years, it's NOT fun at all. I can totally relate.

The art of the self portrait must be genetic in your family. Who would have thought a bathroom shot could be so amazing!

Sorry you have to live with IBS.

Cathy said...

Sorry you felt yucky...but you looked great!

Aly @ Lip Zip said...

You look great! Isn't it funny how the urge to take your own picture strikes at such an odd time? I'm the same way. My husband will run across pictures I've taken of myself and say, "What is this?"

Karolynn said...

Shizzle my nizzle, you are beautiful! You are always dressed from head to toe, I admire your class! Thanks for the clothes, Janika is so happy and Morgan will look like a doll! WEEEEHEEEE Love you!

Hunter Bug said...

Loves you!

Chris said...

I've taken my camera a lot of places, but never into the bathroom at church -- maybe this weekend...

sharon said...

You looked so nice in that suit I couldn't pass it up! I can only wish it cost $60.00-LOL! I am so sorry that you have to deal with that painful IBS. Maybe you could try a straight chocolate diet, with a coke chaser! Love you!!!

Kacey R. said...

Sorry you weren't feeling well - that is awful...but you looked FABULOUS! Awesome suit and the price? What a lucky gal!

Susan said...

Awesome outfit! I could use a nice suit like that, though I don't think I would get to use it much.
Sorry about your grandfather.
I have a good friend with IBS, so though I don't feel your pain I know how terrible it can be.

Indrani said...

That is a lovely combination and you look good .
