She posts all about her adventure in the big city here and here.
In that second post, Melisa mentions that her last solo photo shoot was at Glamour Shots. For those of you not familiar, Glamour Shots is a portrait studio that offers a professional makeover and photography session. Although no longer in the Chicago area, they popped up in area malls in the early 90's and were a fun place to go for a little pampering and red carpet treatment.
In keeping with the old school theme in yesterday's post, I'm sharing my Glamour Shots photo with all of you and I double dog dare ya, Melisa, to post yours too! I had just turned 30 and was a newly divorced mommy to a 5 and 7 year old. Look how smooth my neck is, there's no waddle. Go easy on my big hair please. Actually, I don't think it was that big, and I loved how it was all bouncy. I'd take it back, along with my high school body or even my 1992 body, IN. A. HEARTBEAT.
To my local bloggy pals: Tracey from Just Another Mommy Blog suggested that we all hang out on Saturday February 5th. I'll be there, not sure who else. If you're local and want to grab some coffee, a quick lunch and great conversation, leave me a comment for the deets, and be sure to leave your email so I can get back to you.
