Put Your Best FACE Forward

In the last week, Garry and I have discovered a little thing called "Facebook". Okay, we are only a few years behind everyone else. But that has given our friends an opportunity to join first, and we've had a lot of fun finding our schoolmates and friends in the mass catalogue of Facebook.

As a female, joining Facebook has been a stressful process. You want to find just the right picture. Something that makes you look fabulous so that boy that was mean to you in High School feels the sharp pang of regret.

So I picked a picture that we had taken at Portrait Innovations with me, Emma & Macey. The picture is okay. In my convuluted, delusional mind, I actually think that I am cuter than displayed, but it's what I had on hand.

The problem is my effort to look cute and successful was horribly sabotaged by my husband.

Alright Facebook fans, check out his profile picture, and you will see what I mean.

Horrible, right?

Everyone is going to look at his picture and think that I married some fanatic, gun toting, terrorist hating, West Virginian. And, okay, I did. But they won't realize that Garry is really smart and dresses quite well (especially if he will ever wear that nice black sweater I got him for his birthday -- hint, hint) and has a good job and is the perfect father.

Is there anything in the wedding vows that prevents Facebook Sabotage?

I know this doesn't answer your question . . . but when I put my highschool in facebook . . . only 3 people came up! 3! I came from a small school, but these people must be technologically (sp?)in the dark ages!

I resisted blogging for years. maybe next year I'll join face book. Scott's on it and one of my missionary companions found him. I couldn't find a picture of myself for my blog either.

So I joined facebook-just to see Gary's pic. I tried to add you as a friend. There were pages of Alicia and Gary Cunninghams but none looked like you. I'm under Taralynn Williams Gruwell. Please add me as your "friend"

I actually had Lance's friends from high school that I've met find me on FB. It seemed a little random but now I have to pass on information to him about what's going on in his friends' lives. But I love keeping up with my friends. I'm going to two wedding in May for friends that I grew up with that I've kept in communication with through FB.
