More from Luke's party

I mentioned it in the last post about Luke's party, but our friend Katie brought her giant new lens and camera to the party and took a bunch of pictures. She finally got through editing them all and passed them along to Linsey and Zach. They in turn, forwarded a few to me and then I forwarded a few along to others. Katie did such a great job. We need to have her take some family photos for us. That would be really interesting with Aiden the Irritable. HA.

On a side note, I totally have body dysmorphic disorder. I don't obsess over it and I am by no means anorexic (I'm too hungry for that), but I am unhappy with my body. But then I see photos like this and I am ten times thinner than I imagine in my head. Why do I do that?

I think everyone has a form of this disorder. Vanessa and I were just talkin about it yesterday...She was telling me how skinny I was...and I was trying to convince her that I wasn't skinny and I need a tummy tuck...Then I was explaining to her that she is not "stumpy" (as she calls herself) and that I would kill to have her body - unfortunately, she doesn't see it.
I completely know what you mean though. There are a lot of photos that I look at and think - wow...my stomach doesn't look nearly as bad in the photo as it does in my head! I dont know how to get over it...it is what it is I guess. The older we get the harder it is to maintain certain things...aging pretty much sucks - then you throw having children into the mix and it just makes it harder! Yikes!
But honestly Nikki, I think you look amazing. When I start thinking about something on my body that I dont like - I try to think about things I do like....sometimes it works - sometimes it doesn't...like right now! (I'll explain in my blog)
