"Not Me" Monday! - cell phone edition!

(Please excuse the quality of my photos, as they are all from my cellphone!)

Since the last installment, we went on a trip to our family's retreat!

The day before we left, there's no way it could have been me, who realized that, hmmmm.... I don't have a camera bag! I am way more together than that! I plan ahead, and make sure all my "T's" are crossed and my "I's" dotted.

It was also not me who went to our local Dollar General, bought a "Fashion Cooler"

and some foam sheets, came home, and made my own camera bag! It couldn't have been me! I go top shelf for everything! No expense is too great! There is no way I would be caught dead with a homemade camera bag! Not Me!

Once on the road, it wasn't me who started taking goofy photos of herself out of boredom 2 hours into the 3.5 hour trip. No way! That is so above me! I am WAY too mature to make faces and goof around with my husband like that! I just sat their quietly the whole trip, doing crossword puzzles.....

Just as it wasn't me who had a long discussion about if, indeed, the cloud actually looked like a crab. Not me! I am way too old to bother with using my imagination while looking towards the sky!

(Do you see it?)

It was also not me who accidentally took a picture of myself when my husband got me laughing too hard! I am ALWAYS calm, cool, and collected.... I have no room for fits of laughter in my life! Not Me!

SO, how about you? Want to join in the fun? Hop on over to MckMama's blog, and see what everyone else didn't do this week!

Yes, I see the crab... and I love the camera bag...Very cool, but then I say that I am thrifty, and my 8 and 6 year old say I am cheap...not that I am calling you cheap by any means.... Your post had me rolling on the floor with laughter

LOL...I have a friend that has a brand new camera and keeps it in one of her kids' lunchboxes!

Love the laughing photo! Kim

Looks like you were having a great time!

Kalle said...

I totally see the crab and I love your homemade camera bag. Looks like a great family trip.

Becky said...

That camera bag is genius! I never would have thought to use a lunch box! That's so much cheaper (and prettier) than my camera bag!

That cloud definitely looks like a crab! And the homemade camera bag? Way to improvise in a pinch. Great Not Me! Monday post. I usually play along each week, but couldn't this week. :(
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

It is funny how when you use a pro camera and then you go to a cell camera you have to inform everyone, I do the same thing. We get so used to looking at good pics that when we see cell phone pics they are just not the same....lol I love the photo of you and your husband laughing....I hope my husband and I are laughing when we drive to Florida.
