Self Portrait Challenge: Introduce Yourself


My name is Brittany. When I was younger, no one had heard that name and everyone called me Bethany or Bridget. Now there are 2, 768, 341 Brittanys and they are mostly all waist high to me. It drives me a little nuts. Please, if you are expecting a daughter at this time, do not consider the name Brittany. Why not go with Octavia instead?

I took this picture last fall. After spotting Chewy along a fence on trash day, my sister-in-law Jess and I stashed him in the trunk of my minivan (that’s right, my pride is not an issue anymore. I drive a minivan, and I’m not ashamed.) and brought him home and I started setting him up all over the house to surprise my husband. Chewy kept showing up; in the bedroom; in the kitchen; in the bathroom; in the dark or in the light. There were no boundaries and it drove my husband crazy. So right before I decided to push my husband no further and retire my good friend Chewy, I took this intimate picture of Chewy and I together and emailed it to him at work. I think he was a little jealous. It’s probably a good thing he hasn’t seen Chewy since.

This is perhaps the most beautiful picture I have ever seen!! I am now jealous and must have a Chewy for my kitchen! I'll have to bribe the clerk at Best Buy or something...

Thanks for sharing!!

Left-handed Trees... said... son is so in love with Star Wars that he, too, will be jealous of this shot. (For different reasons than your husband, I'll admit...but, still)...Who isn't jealous of Chewy?

Nice one - chewy in the bedroom? Hmmm...could spice things up a bit. Might have to steal the idea.
