What I Wore, Besides BBQ Sauce


Sometimes you don’t know what you look like until you see yourself through someone else’s eyes. Maybe that’s why we look at pictures of ourselves, sometimes say, “Who is she?”

This is me – regular.

Pronounce it like this: “Regler.”

My photographer knows me well, and he gives me sense of place, that my regular is good to him.

There I am always next to his books, our props, mental backdrop. His regular is good to me, too.

Seth thinks my barbeque chicken is sexy. We’re married, so I work it. Giggling is not rare.

This shirt is vintage home-made. My earliest memories are of my Mama wearing it (thin as lace) and her Wonder Woman hair. I’ve worn it myself for almost 20 years now and could probably rip it down the middle with a jerk.

Paired with Minnetonka’s, this is my most regular bbq-chicken finger-lickin Me. Don’t we all like regler best?

linking up to awesome ladies: her and her.

Amber, I love how you take "What I Wore Wednesday" and make it SO much more than your outfit - you show us bits of you. Thanks for your stories - always, thanks.

I completely agree with Rae. Your WIWW posts are so dynamic and filled out. Love.

And I ADORE that plaid shirt. I find myself wistfully thinking if only I had all of my mother's clothes from the 70s and 80s. I would be a happy, happy girl. I hope they found happy new lives somewhere ...

Is that kinda like "she thinks my tractor's sexy"?

You nom chicken on the fly like Jacob - I think it's so reckless with sauce, but I like reckless. ;-)
Your every day is my favorite yet. Minnetonkas ftw!

    Airs, I'm so glad we live on the same planet. I've been hate-singing She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy since I wrote this post!

    I'm so reckless with my sauce. Rarrr.

That is great, I love the history of the shirt.
