My Rear View


I have more than 4,000 digital photos stored on my computer.  They are an unorganized mess.
A disaster of enormous proportion.
  
This makes me twitch.  A lot.

I set out the other day to attack this project.  As I was rearranging and deleting and organizing, 
I kept seeing these random, headless photos.  They were potshots.  

Interesting photos of uh, um, well, of -

My booty:

My bum:

My hiney:

My derriere:


Getting the picture?

Oh goodness thats funny!! This and other various reasons is why my hubby does not use the camera. Besides my booty would take up the whole darn picture. :)

Beautiful Craziness said...

Funnny! I delete pictures like that...mostly because my hubs doesn't usually get the camera and when he does he decided to take similar pictures when I'm in yoga pants or worse...sweat pants! What is he thinking!

Melanie said...

Oh that is hilarious!! Aren't hubbies so funny?

Faerie Mom said...

DH takes those of me, too. I usually delete them off of the digital before I upload to the computer. Then he gets mad at me! LOL

I love that you are keeping them... you guys are so sweet together!

jen said...

OH, that is just too funny! You should make him a photo book for your next anniversary!

Mzzterry said...

Too funny!!

Mrs. Brownstone @ XBOX Wife said...

Oh, I love this! That is one of the sweetest things I've ever read!

The Apron Queen said...

I think I'm going to change my blog roll for you to "Bootlylicious: instead of We are THAT family. :D

Jen @ One Moms World said...

LOL... How funny. I have a lot of random pictures as well but it is when my girls get a hold of the camera.

Nikki said...

Awwwww. That's so sweet! What a fun album. :)

Owlhaven said...

Too funny!!

Mary, mom to many

Debye said...

What a sweet (and funny) story!

Jenn said...

What a sweetie you have -

Janel said...

very sweet!!!

Mark @ NowParenting said...

My wife doesn't like it when I take pictures of her like this. I do it all in fun but she insists on me deleting them soon after. Maybe she secretly does like it and she just won't confess. :) Too funny either way.

Jack's Mommy said...

ROFL!!!!! my hubby does the same thing to me!!! i just found a set of booty piccies he took the other day from 2 years ago whilst I was playing with our dogs..lol..i was quite sad to realize i didn't have those particular pants anymore too. aren't hubbies hilarious!!??

(on a nicer note, i will admit to taking the same kinda pictures of my hubby's biceps and shoulders..lol)

Monica said...

How sweet is that!! What a great hubby you have!

Kristin said...

That is too cute. The bum and the hubby. lol

Karen said...

that is SO something my husband would do. :)

Gray Matters said...

Love it!

Michelle said...

lol. i agree with Karen.. that is something my hubby would do... have a great day..

Heidi said...

That is sooo sweet! He sounds like a great guy. :)

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Fan-tASS-tic!!!

mom_of2boys said...

Too funny! I like the "What Works for Him" folder name.

Carol Van Rooy said...

That's too funny!!! Gotta admit, I too have some of those photo's taken of me.

The Happy Housewife said...

Very, very funny! You are a sweet wife to give him his own folder, any pictures of my rear end go straight to the little trash can on my computer screen.

Cindy Swanson said...

You know what? I think that is FANTASTIC. My husband would be rewarded handsomely for saying something that sweet. :)

Lily Pad Mom said...

That's great! My husband always takes the most random pictures of me, and always when I look my worst. But he loves them and says they are just for him.

Thank you for the reminder that I need to get all the pictures on my computer organized and properly stored!

Denise said...

How funny!!!! I'm sure if we all looked close enough we'd find tons of these pictures on our computers as well. Have a Great Day

Tiff said...

My hubby does that too but i always delete them. UGH who wants to look at my big butt!

Jae said...

Aww!! Wow, yeah, he's a keeper. That's really sweet and cute! And your backside is small, so no worries!

Crystal said...

Very Sweet! Isn't it nice to know your loved?

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Awwwwwww that's sweet!

My hubby, on the other hand, fears certain death if he were to EVER take a picture of my backside. Seriously!

I feel ya on the photo organizing thing. I dread it. I sorta went a bit mad when I got my big girl camera (a super sweeeeeeeet DSLR) last year, and now I have 20+ thousand photos that are awaiting organization. No wonder my computer is so slow!

Marcy Massura said...

Oh you funny gal! Okay so ONCE I asked my husband to use my professional camera to take a nice photo of me for my photog site. He took 5-10 photos and said-"okay I think I got a couple good ones, can I go watch my golf now?"....well, I ran to upload- and what did I see? ONE photo of my face and the rest of my CHEST! Apparently- THAT is what works for him!!!! Hey have you tried PICASA? You will DIE how awesome it is. You load it for FREE and it finds all the pics on your computer FOR YOU. SO easy to organize....try try try...I have 27,000 images on my system!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Patty said...

Thats priceless!! Happy WW

The Sweet Family said...

I know what you mean. I managed to take all of our pics and put them on individual cd's and into our fire-proof safe.

Cute story about your husband. Thanks for sharing!

Bina said...

What is it with men? My husband does the SAME thing! However, on the last batch of pictures I down loaded, not only did I find my butt more times than I care to count, but he took pictures of his TRI bike. UPCLOSE pictures. Okay, so I knew he liked it, but I didn't know he liked it THAT much!

Happy2bme said...

I think its true love!!! ha ha. Happy WW!!

Kate said...

So funny! But very sweet too. :)

Domestic Accident said...

It is a very cute butt. Who could blame him?

Jen @ JenuineJen said...

That is a really sweet story. I am glad that the love is strong in your marriage. BTW, I just signed up to follow you on twitter.

Elaine A. said...

That is AWESOME!!! I am a little suprised my husband hasn't done this. He's always slapping mine! I love this!

Amanda Eck said...

ahahahahaha that is too cute! isnt nice to be wanted? especially on those days when you feel so un-appealing. there are days I cant even stand myself and my hubby still wants me. crazy!

Heather J. said...

Very Nice......
Like I said before,
You have the best husband.

Three P's in a Pod said...

THopgood said...

That's hilarious! It's the little things our hubbies do that make us smile!

I have a few of those shots myself...like I said before, my boobies provide a constant source of comedy for us.

Heather said...

Oh.my.word! How funny! You'll be glad you saved those. Or he will, I'm not sure.

Marni Tiani Self said...

That is so awesome! I wish my hubby was as sweet! :)

Shelley said...

That's the sweetest thing! What a good guy. I'd do the same thing - keep the pics to remind you next time he's not being quite so sweet...

Mrs Nespy said...

Just when you think you want to strangle them, they end up being so sweet! =) Very cute and sweet!

Michelle Hix said...

It would have been more funny if you thought he was taking pictures of someone else's behind only to later realize it was yours! I don't think I'd recognize my own butt!

AJ said...

I love this post. What a fun family!

cre8tivkj said...

LOL! I laugh cuz my hubby has done that to me, only his pictures are the moving kind (video). I think I'd rather see the pictures still rather than moving (makes me want to jump on a treadmill right then and there, I cringe). Cute post!

lori said...

ONE day...ONE day I tell ya...I'll be FIRST!!

but it's not today....
I do have to tell you that I was reading a post of yours last night...LAUGHING OUT LOUD...and hubby wondered why such fun at 9 pm...without him...I showed him the PERM post and the overflowing tub...then he understood!!
He said that lady needs to write a BOOK...her random posts are HYSTERICAL..
I agree....

and apparently so do 53 commenters in FRONT of me!!

your pics look strangely like the ones my 13 year old has bogging down MY computer....

have a great one!!

Krista said...

That is AWESOME! Sometimes I just don't feel pretty at all and it totally amazes me that the hubby can't take his eyes off me. God works in mysterious ways I guess... :)

Baby Mama (Tamra) said...

Too funny!

TwinsMom said...

How sweet! (did you ever think anyone would say that about a random booty shot!) Thanks for making me remember that my husband loves me as is! Sometimes he will make comments about me and I will just roll my eyes and think "there is no way he could possible find that attractive!" I am going to try and really believe those comments from now on!

Soliloquy said...

Remember that scene from Miss Congeniality?

"You loooooove me. You think I'm sexxxxy. You want to daaaaaate me."

You gotta' use that one on hubby.

I got nothing better. The Mother Breach took all the sass out of me.

For today.

But good news: I'm baaaack!

I'm losing it. Typo on my URL. Sorry.

Is it 5:00 yet?

Happy Mommy said...

First I will say, oh my gosh you have 59 comments today!!! I really need to figure out how to do the wfmw on Rocks in my dryer, because you know how I love comments!!!
And that is absolutely hilarious!
We are on the book The Horse and his Boy. I never read the books as a child it is wonderful to have my husband read them to us all.
I am glad you have the same kind of husband I do, wonderful.

Amy said...

HA! Love it! He's definitely a keeper. :)

Stephanie said...

Nice tushie!

marky said...

LOL! I love it! you have a great hubby.

Storm said...

Kudos to hubby for thinking you are still cute after 14 years of marriage. Kudos to you for sharing photos of your derriere. I don't know if I would have the guts. :)

heather said...

K. This had me laughing. I can relate. my husbands photo taking moment of choice is while I am in the SHOWER! Needless to say, those will not make it to the blog!

TONYA said...

ha ha, I'm loving it. I have found quite an assortment of 'those' kinds of pictures on my hard drive before too. It seems like everytime I bend over my boobs or butt are being photographed.

Colleen said...

Don't they have the strangest ways of staying dear to our hearts? My hubby still picks up candy bars at the gas station for me. I'd rather have that than flowers any day. :O)

(And I have those same jeans you're wearing in the "My hiney" picture. and I'm pretty sure the same white button-up shirt from the last photo. NY & Co?)

Brea said...

How wonderful! This post completely made me smile. How blessed you are!!

jskell911 said...

My sweetie is just like that! LOL. He always let's me go up stairs first, so he can pat my behind. Nice on those days when you're just feeling gross, isn't it?

Amy Jo said...

awwww.. you wouldn't include this in your hard cover blog album? I happened to catch this off of Shannon's WFM a while back and thought it was VERY funny. It was great to see it again...

Bethany said...

Okay...I've got to stop reading, or I won't be able to breathe anymore!! I'm loving your blog!

Funny!

Kimberly said...

You gotta love a man like that!!
