Easter Egg Hunting and "Do I really look like that from behind?"

There is a line from a Harry Potter movie where Hermione says something like, "Do I really look like that from behind?"  I always thought that line was both really funny and really true.  As in, I am always wondering how I look from behind.  Is that weird?

Anyway, there is always a gold prize egg at my parents' Easter Sunday egg hunt with a $5 bill inside.  Each year, we have a friendly competition to find it (did I tell you I'm a twin and that twins are highly competitive??).  I was hunting all around the yard trying to find that prize egg!  

This picture is obviously an awful angle (Rick was enjoying clicking away!!!), but I did like how my calves looked in this picture.  TONED!  Pretty neat.  I never knew they looked like that from behind!  It has taken me awhile to like how I look, muscles and all (see here for more of my story).

Toned legs

More hunting...

And more hunting!!! (I was given a clue that it was in that bush!!!)
It was also cool to see my son save a robin's egg and put it back in the nest from which it had fallen.  My kids both love the outdoors, and Alabama had the most perfect Easter Sunday weather--low 70s with a nice breeze.  They enjoyed hours of outdoor play!

Rescuing the robin egg (no, we can't keep it!!)


  1. You do have nice calves!! I've been working on sculpting mine :) Cool that your son saved a robin :) Looks like you had a great Easter!

  2. Oh how fun! And yes, I have always wondered that too. ha ha ha! Usually, though it is not a view I like when I do get to see it, so I just make up a better one in my head. :)
