Do you know how difficult it is to take a picture eating a candy cane and not look ridiculous or obscene!? 😂 But 15 pts for a month that is so busy it probably wasn't a good idea to sign up for more. 😅 #wintergames #selfiescavengerhunt #teamelectricsex @LibrarianRyan

My last selfie was of the two of us—so here‘s Mr. B too. It was Election Day and we were skeptical and hopeful. Turns out we were both right.

I look like a cross eyed bloated fish when I try to take selfies (I'm on that cusp where I'm technically a millennial but actually too old to care about learning to take a proper selfie). So here's a picture of me in front of the Alamo this past Monday. It was a really interesting place to visit! But #theresnobasementinthealamo 😉

Eggs ❤️ San Antonio 1y
jmofo I can‘t go there because it‘ll break my heart that Jan Hooks isn‘t the guide. 🚲💔 1y

sprainedbrain No basement?!? 🚲 Love your almost-selfie. 😃 1y
Jilly6183 Also why is there no red bike emoji?! @jmofo @sprainedbrain 1y
sprainedbrain @Jilly6183 I feel like there should be a selection of PeeWee related emojis. 😂 1y
Jilly6183 @sprainedbrain If you like emojis so much, why don't you marry them? 😉🤣 1y
sprainedbrain @Jilly6183 omfg I just 😂😂😂 I‘m putting that movie on now, so my 7-year-old can ask me (again) why I think it‘s so funny. 1y
jmofo @Jilly6183 & @sprainedbrain thanks for the solidarity ✊and the laughs! 🤓 1y

This is me and my youngest niece at Friendsgiving last week. One of my favorite pastimes is playing mattress for little babies. It‘s rough on the arms but I know the snuggles are limited.


RaimeyGallant Oh my gosh, I want some of those snuggles. 1y
TrishB Aww 💕 lovely 1y
Eggbeater What a beautiful picture! 😍 1y
