1:52 Hello.

Cynthia at Picture Motherhood is taking part in a 52 week challenge in which each week has a different theme consisting of one word and centered around self-portraits.  She is much farther along (by like...15 weeks or so), but I have decided to give it a try myself!

Of course, this blog is a lot about myself, but rarely do I get in-depth on me.  I'm always babbling on about how this kid annoyed me and how I wanted to kick a cat or eat a three-ton cheesecake.  While delightfully exciting, it doesn't say much about me.

So, to get started, we have Week One: Hello.

Me standing by a wall

This is me.  Karly Claire Gomez.  I am a short stack of 5'4", and 20 weeks along with Mystery Creature #3.  I love to draw and of course play around with my camera.  I used to be a member of the Air Force, and am a constant college dropout.  I spend my days trying to find inspiration in anything and everything and try very, very hard to not be a crazy, overbearing protective Mom.  I let my kids touch everything (within reason) and then put their hands in their mouth.  Germs are a good thing, I believe.

I never, never, never leave the house without makeup, and very rarely without having my hair in some form of "done"ness.  I've been this way since my early teens, when I used to steal Mom's makeup and put it on my face.  And arms, and neck and chest.  Yeah, I like to learn things the hard, messy way.  I strongly believe that if someone were to see me without my face and hair put together, they would assume me to be white trash, or poor; which although I may be both, I do my best to project the exact opposite image.

I care about eating healthy, but I have zero follow-through.  I love sugar and junk way too much, which is probably why I've had diabetes with Afton and Delaney and again now with Baby #3.  I love carbs and carbs hate me, but I don't care!

So what else is there to say about me?  What makes  A lot of things, that is certain.  And over the next 51 weeks you can discover more about just me.  Just Karly.  So word up my homies, and enjoy!

Karly, I love, love this post. The first photo is just stunning (what an awesome wall and composition!) and the second one is so fun. I think it's great that you make a point to take time to put on make-up and do your hair before leaving the house. I've started doing that only recently and I'm actually starting to feel a whole lot better about myself. Can't wait to see what you come up with for next week.
