Update - August 2nd. Okay, sweeties, I'm a little on the disappointed side! Not many of you are taking my Bathroom Beauty Snappers challenge. If you just can't bring yourself to snap yourselft in a public ladies room, PLEASE try taking a picture of yourself in your own bathroom mirror. I know you will look so beautiful in your bathroomness. If you'll do this I will put your link here on my blog and everyone of you can go and look at the others. Come on...

I know you're all so big and brave. Now remember take the logo I made and put it on your blog. I'll just keep this up until Wednesday, August 6, and then I'll be on with other things. But you can still participate later on. Now, don't disappoint me, this is my first ever challenge in Blogland, sweeties! After Wednesday, if you send me a bathroom mug shot I'll give you the logo as an award.

Dear Ones, I just giggled myself to sleep the night before last after I thought about all your comments on my bathroom self portraits! ;) You gave me inspiration and an idea!





Well, Darling Daring Bathroom Divas, I am going to toss out a bathroom challenge to you!

I thought it would be so much fun ( you know I'm all about the fun in life! ) to have a Bathroom Beauty Snappers Challenge. You just don't know the feeling of accomplishment, self awareness and the "I Did It" kind of feeling you will have after you've done this!

Now, Dear Darlings, I want you to go to your favorite eating establishment, camera in your purse, walk into the ladies' room, make sure no one else is watching you... and snap snap snap away taking a picture of yourself in all your bathroom beautifulness!

Now, if you're just a wee bit shy (notice that cute pun? did I ever tell you how clever I am? ;) of doing this in a public place, you can go into your own home bathroom and snap snap snap away. But I must tell you, you will not have the same sense of accomplishment or self satisfaction by just staying at home. I will not call you a bathroom chicken, no, not me. You decide!

I got up early this morning just so I could make the little Bathroom Beauty Snapper logo just for you Darling Daring Bathroom Beauty Snapping Divas! If you're up for this challenge, please take the little logo and put it on your blog along with your most alluring gorgeous bathroom mug, eh, portrait shot! Let me know when your gorgeous bathroom portrait picture is posted on your blog and I'll list you here on my blog. You will be forever an amazing Bathroom Beauty Snapping Daring Darling Diva!

Here's some Bathroom Beauty Snapper portraits of me in all of my bathroom gloriness to get you excited. I've been doing this for years and it really does get easier each time you snap snap snap. Just jump jump jump in with both feet!






Are you inspired now? I surely hope so! Now since I've only been blogging a short time I don't know all the techy things. Could someone please tell me how I can list all of you who participate with a link to your blog that tells your blog's name ( like all of you can do except me! ) without having to have the http/: in there? If not, I'll just put that in.
Okay my Darling Daring Bathroom Beauty Snappers...hit the bathrooms!
Remember to take my little logo so everyone who comes to see you will be so impressed!!
Let's keep this going until next Wednesday, August 6th. I'm excited, how about you? Don't be shy!
Be a bunch of Darling Daring Bathroom Beauty Snapping Sweeties,
Shelia ;)

  1. I have a confession: I hate using public bathrooms. It might even be considered a phobia. I'm sure there is a name for it. You wouldn't believe how often I must beg my husband to drive faster when returning home from an evening out! :)

  2. Sheila you are a hoot!! I love all your bathroom shots! I tell you I'm so glad we're friends! You made me laugh so much with this post!

  5. I'm with Alice, I avoid public restrooms at all costs! It will be fun to see who takes you up on this though.

  6. You are so funny! I'll have to remember to grab my camera the next time I go out to eat LOL!

    BTW the picture I posted has already reminded me of the movie with Burt Lancaster too! I'm just not telling my mother I am posting it LOL!

    take care,

  7. Good Morning, Shelia!!

    Well...I see, I'm not the first to post this morning. I was outside sitting on my patio, in the swing, listening to and seeing all of the birds and the water fountain/waterfall! Then...it was over to the SHOW ME YOUR FORM> event!!

    Now...I'm here and LOL!!! You are a HOOT!!! I may just take you up on this...I think I can be just as weird as you are!!!

    Yesterday in our hunt for "goodies", you wouldn't begin to imagine how many times your name came up...even out of Tom's mouth...cuz we saw ROOSTERS!!! LOL!!

    ~Blessings,

  8. Girl, you are too much! I love it.
    Public restrooms, not my fav. I try to avoid them unless I'm in a posh place. I'm not planning on any posh places soon. I am planning a Target run but the last time I was in their restroom I walked right back out.

    hugs,

  9. OH my GOSH ! I can just see the headlines now !" BLOG RING CAUGHT
    SNAPPING PICS IN PUBLIC RESTROOMS"

    I was going to say something about the wall dryer in the bathrooms, but I better not !!

    You are a HOOT miss Sheila !!!

  10. You are such a witty girl to come up with such a "unique" challenge! Made me think immediately of the bathroom in the Beau Rivage casino in Biloxi...I definitely could have taken some pictures in there. The sinks were beautiful!

  11. Although I've never done this, and I've never taken my camera with me, I'm game! This is a good excuse to dine out this weekend. I'll let you know when mine's posted.

    In fact, after the end of this bathroom run (I can write a tad creatively too!), I think you should challenge everyone to snap pictures in a not-so-fancy bathroom--one like Target--with and without the mess!

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is too fun... will do next week! I'm excited... oohh I've got a good one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. You are such a hoot! Thats why I think I love you so much... Im going to try.. I take awful pictures of myself but it's all good fun! Im In....Susie h~

  14. You are so funny. Now here comes the scrapbooker in me...what a neat idea for a book...Seeing the world, one restroom at a time in pictures!!! If you become rich selling books, please remember who gave you the idea!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. That is so funny. But you did make some very pretty pictures of yourself. I've been wondering how to make a picture of myself. I really hate to have my picture taken. I can break a camera. Thanks for the idea, we'll see.

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOL! You are too funny. Do you have to do it without anyone seeing you? Heck I don't get embarrassed so I don't care if anyone sees me. Or is that a rule? lol.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I hate having my picture taken anywhere - can't imagine taking it in a restroom. I'll have to think about that!! Thanks for stopping by my new blog. Sally

    ReplyDelete
  18. You are so funny! Okay, I am going on vacation and of course taking the camera. I will try and do this. As long as no one else is in the bathroom with me, lol!!!

    Hugs,
    Amy

  19. Sheila!..what a challenge that is going to be. Yikes! I was happy to see pics you took of yourself. You looked wonderful in them all. I am away on vacation soooo I'll have to remember to take my camera with me in case we do plan on eating out...oh my. This does sound like fun.
    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on Madeline's dress.

And let me tell ya- I do not like my picture taken, nor do I feel anything close to a darling diva right now.....but you are so much fun (and beautiful, by the way) I think I may just have to join in! Let's live a little and be silly! Shall we??

  28. Hi Sheila...Just wanted to let you know that I looked at your "Pillow Talk" post and we did have the same post name didn't we. Isn't that amazing!

    I can see why you like to take your picture. You always look so cute! I just hate seeing myself in a picture 'cause I never take a good one. I think it's a cute idea though and who knows, maybe I'll just do it one day.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am inspired... your pics are beautiful!!!
    I'll be try...

    Sheila,
    My balcony tomatoes are crazy.

    Have a beautiful weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Shelia; I am still laughing. You are such a funny lovable Lady. I am going to take you up on your challenge, I can't resist a challenge. So I will take my camera and shop for a nice bathroom. It might take awhile, but I am sure some shop has one. OH and I will have to shop for a new outfit too, hahahahahha hey a bathroom outfit, do they make those....
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs;

  31. Sheila, I have a confession to make. I see your name on so many posts and I never clicked on to find you at the time. I love your comments and have wanted to find you. Theresa, at Take a Sentimental Journey, just sent me an email about your toilet photo shoot. She said to go to Note Song and get a good laugh. I did not know where to find Note Song and she wrote back and told me to go to her blog list. I still didn't know it was you until now. You are going on my blog list now. Now I am going to be a sweetie and play your game. I have one last thing to say. You are a sweetie and now I am going to bed happy. I found Sheila!!!

    Love ya, Jeanne

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sheila, You must be up late, too! I fudged a little and went ahead and posted my pink post for tomorrow...so I could sleep in late! "Shhhhhh..." Don't tell anyone, it will be our little secret! LOL!

    You are such a hoot! I am so UNphotogenic, so I don't know if I will work up the courage to post my bathroom pic, but this is too funny, and can't wait to see everyone elses! LOL! But, I must certainly say, you are very photogenic and pretty! :)

    Love your graphic you made for the event! You are very clever, aren't you! I'll be back to see your pink post...

    Hugs, Rhonda :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. And where is the song for this post??? I so look forward to seeing what you have come up with for each post! LOLOL! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Roflmao! Oh you are one brave lady! This is too fun! I can't wait to see what other people post. Not sure I'll be at a restaurant in the next few days, but if I take a pic in my own bathroom, it means I have to clean it! lol

  43. Good morning Sheila
    Marc and I did go to the Village Inn on Friday night again for a fish fry (except we ended up not having a fish fry again), anyway we had just been talking about it, Marc (Mr. Bunny) and I. I absolutely was sooo annoyed with me when we got back when it occurred to me that I'd totally forgotten to take my camera and what my mission was. I ws so disappointed to lose that opportunity.
    So...now I have to wait and see again. We are going to an Elk's Picnic this afternoon at their lodge. Its all outdoors and I'm not so sure about the opportunity of taking a pic there.
    I hope you are having a splendid day today....

    I guess you are happy today with all this funnyness going in with the pics. I noticed that a couple of the links are not coming up that you put up and I just realized the problem. There is one http in two of them so its not linking.

    have a lovely day filled with fun!
