Shake Your Bon Bon

{this post is rated PG. I think}


While I was at Walmart, picking up some photos, I had an epiphany.
It was twofold.

1). Walmart in the Pacific Northwest is deeeeepressing. Whenever my southern belle cousin Sara visits (from Arkansas), she can't believe how sad they are.

2). I normally would order my prints from Walgreens.


But. I had "THE" pictures developed there.





"THE" pictures were part of a wedding gift to Daniel, from me.
Me ala boudoir photo shoot. ooo-la-la.
And in a time crunch, I sent them to Walgreens. 1-hour pick-up. good idea.
About 2 minutes after I clicked "order," I realized...no. bad idea.
Cute, little, ol' twinkly-eyed grandpas work at Walgreens.
As do pimply-faced hormone filled teenage boys.
Neither of which I would want to face after being "hot off the presses."

Basically. I wimped out.
I sent a friend inside to pick them up.
And I have yet to brave the use of their print services since then.



Thanks for that life reminder, Walmart.
I am forever enslaved to your dreary photo processing center.

xoxo

LOL at the thought of the old grandpas looking at your photos! I can see why that might have been a tad awkward! I think I would have sent a friend to get them for me too!

HAHAHA. I would have sent a friend in there too!

Shannon said...

bahahah that is so funny!!i think i would have bought a printer and printed them at home or got them sent to my house bc i would have been embarrassed as well!!

This post just made me giggle and shake my head, you Walgreens exile you. Walmart is scary...I vote for owning your boudoir shots with pride and marching right into Walgreens next time and just dare the grandpas to recognize you.

TB said...

Hahaha! Oh, my gosh--you must make all kinds of excuses not to go to Wallgreens. I doubt they'll ever forget you! ;)

And THAT'S why I use online printing. Adorama or snapfish, or even the iPhoto printing through mac. Anything but having to face people who have now perused my personal life!

Sheri said...

haha...that is so funny! I would send a friend in to pick them up too. It's kinda weird imagining people looking at your pics right? It freaks me out if I think about it too hard.
; )

kira said...

That is so funny, I would probably never go back to Walgreens either.

Hahahaha this is hilarious. Reminds me of this Seinfeld episode (but then, everything reminds me a of a Seinfeld episode): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Package_(Seinfeld)

Xo, Katie

kaitlin said...

i would have wimped out too! i'm sure they've seen worse things than your oo-la-la pictures ha ha

wildchild said...

haha i've always wondered where people get those things developed! but at least you have a hot bod. just walk in there and own it. strut your stuff in front of those twinkly eyed grandpas :)

Rachel said...

You are so gorgeous! And I'm impressed that you even got your pictures printed. I took mine over a year ago, and I still have yet to work up the courage to get them printed somewhere. So my husband keeps them on his phone, like a creeper. Someday I'll get one printed and we'll put it up somewhere private :)

xoxo,
Joelle

Gorgeous photos! You look LOVELY!! Sorry your Walmart's are crappy and you have to go there. I find walmarts are hit and miss. It all depends on how recently they've been remodeled, whether they are the super walmart, etc... No fun!

Kate said...

Ooops! haha I don't blame you, I would've been way too chicken to go pick them up!

Sarah said...

Haha sounds awkward. Well, I hope you don't have to suffer through too many more Walmart adventures because yes, that place is the epitome of depressing.

Um... and now there's SUPER Walmart? What gives?!

Erin said...

Ha ha I always wondered if they really look at them...I have heard different things! I guess we will never know!

Kristin @ The Chronicles of Kristin said...

Oh, dear. Next time, use mpix.com. Two words: drop shipping. hahaha :)

kelci r said...

hahaha love it!

Alexis Kaye said...

ahahahhahahahahhahahahah

Shalyn said...

Now THAT is something I would most certainly do- ha. You look gorgeous in those photos

Danielle and Trev said...

LOOVE love love your blog. Following you now!

Sara B said...

So pretty! And how fun, I want to do that for my husband as a wedding gift someday. But yes, getting them printed might not happen at a walmart for me. Or anywhere in person for that matter...

brittany said...

ooooh, i feel like it's maybe the opposite here in nashville! i'm not sure i'd want walmart workers seeing my sexay photos! walmart can get a litttttle craycray.

Amylou said...

Oh my gosh! I don't blame you for sending a friend in! I would have been so embarrased!

Joyeful said...

hahhahaha! oh I would definitely have wimped out on that one seeing as I'm already on first name basis with everyone in my walgreens!!

bonnie said...

hahahaha! love it. i have not taken pictures like that specifically because of creepy/sensitive people who print them ;)

Amanda said...

Hahahah! Love stories like this. I also don't think I'm bold enough to do "THE" pictures like you...but maybe one day :)

Courtney B said...

Hahahaha!! LOVE this! I'd totally send a friend in as well :)
Question, are you happy you did this photo shoot? I've really been thinking about doing this for my hubs lately. But I don't know anyone else who has done this to talk about it. I mean, not that I want details haha. Just your opinion?!

chanel said...

Oh my gosh! This is hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.

This is so great! Loving your blog and your adorable pregnancy pics. Extreme cuteness.

Rachael said...

HAHAhahah! You're SO funny! Those pictures are GORGEOUS.
P.S. My favorite place to get pictures done is MPIX.com. Best quality I've ever seen. Quick turnaround. And cheap.
