Face Off

Ok...here is my carbface after 10 days of "watching it." A little less puffy? Maybe? Holding a camera over my chubby side helps. This week I have had my face in boxes of Christmas ornaments, the screens at Amazon.com and a jumbo jar of Vicks VapoRub. My December cold returns.

Of course, this face eats 3x what mine does and look at it. Not a carb to be seen. This face will light up if you ask its owner to share his thoughts on college football and BCS selections. He has opinions, people.

Ahhh...this face. It has saved its owner from all kinds of spankings and time-outs. Dimples as defense. This face has been within an inch of the under-the-tree-Christmas-train all week. Choo choo.

This face tries so hard to be tough. Mostly to cover up the softie within. This one likes to face the music. Particularly the John Denver/Muppets Christmas CD which is playing non-stop around here

This young one has his holiday game face on. Christmas shopping all done? Check. With money he earned himself? Check. Outstanding report card? Check. Santa has noticed.
.

The face of a snow-angel. We had our first dusting of white stuff this weekend. Just enough to sled in for a few hours before all melting away. Beautiful.

Christmas? I think we can face it.

I can see a difference. You look great and slim.

I get carb face too. The puffy eyelids are the worst the morning after I've had my face in a bag of chips or candy...

Those kids of yours have sweet faces.

You are so clever. I love it.

I think you look very beautiful in the picture. I don't know if it has anything to do with the diet but I like the picture.

I know...why can our men eat what they want?

We have the John Denver/Muppets Christmas CD and love it so much.

Your face looks amazing and totally not-puffy. Is going off carbs really the answer? That might kill me. I think giving up diet-coke would help with carb-face as well but I might kill my kids if I did that and I guess it's better to just have a fat face.

By the way, I think you look so much like Marta in that picture!

You look GREAT. I see a difference, unless you are really good at strategic camera placement. ;-)

wow, my carb face is happy for your skinny face. i really can tell a difference. you look great.

all the other faces in your family are so cute.

a john denver/muppets cd? where have i been? i didn't know such a thing existed and i had a very large crush on john denver as a child. i used to lay on the floor staring at john on the record album cover. and i cried (for days) when he died.

Holy COW! I need a repeat on the Carb face diet! Does it include the graham crackers and frosting I ate for FHE treast? The cream I put in the frostin had protein.

I see a no-carb face peeking at me and yes my chubby cheeks are smiling all over their layered wreaths at how sleek and glamourous you look. I will live on as your eternal "before shot" to give you incentive to keep the carbs from settling into their old digs. You look gorgeous! As do the rest of the faces in your darling fam.

Lauren in GA said...

I am thinking of you because I think a blizzard is headed your way. Sending warm thoughts!

crystal said...

Your carbface has boney cheekbones! You're gorgeous!

I'm ready to discuss BCS selections.

TCU got hosed and I hope BSU loses big time.

Ah, I hate living in BSU-land.

Well, at least the Ducks are going to the Rose Bowl.
