The Fridge of FAME...are YOU representin?



So I do this thing....I cover my fridge with pictures of my friends and family. 


It makes me happy to see their faces throughout the year.  AND, it's a great conversation piece. 


So, each year, after all the Christmas cards have been taken down, I remove all the old pics and put them in an album, along with their letters and then put up the new ones.  It's really a rather scientific and Tetris like process.  But, I'm really GREAT at Tetris, just ask Jere.  This year, I had so many, and the style of cards were pics the size of TEXAS (anyone else notice that) that I had to actually...gasp...not put some up.  And then there were others that didn't send them, or got them to me late (sorry Holly, you were in the late category and I was full up). 


So, look around.....do you see yourself on there?  Are you representin?  For the record, many of my readers are real life friends.

Can you find Hugh Jackman?  Oh yeah, he's REALLY there, in a real live picture with my gay boyfriend Stephen.  Stephen works on Broadway, so he sent me this pic.  I LOVE when boys notice that picture for the first time.  They can't believe I have Wolverine for realsies on my fridge.

Erika, note the picture on the left there.....I need a NEW one.  The end.

The top row is all my bros. and sisters and their families (minus the cute wedding pic, which is our friends Chad and Erin..hi Erin).

Sigh...I love my fridge of fame!

You wanna be on next years?  I knew it.  Start prepping now, and get your Christmas pic out to me early.  I'm sort of a big deal. hahahahahahahahaha

What do you do with your fridges?

Kodak and kisses,

I didn't even need to read this post to know my answer--middle row, right side.
Ha.
That's me scoffing with superiority, people!

You got this amazing idea from me, right? And now after I painted my door--two years ago--I stopped doing it. Or maybe it was becuase people stopped sending me their pictures. Hmmmm I guess I'm just not as cool as you.

A belated but no less sincere and heartfelt 'Thank you!' for stopping by my Home renovation and design blog on my SITS Featured blog day!

I put all photos on the SIDE of my fridge because I want a clean look, and to see pictures of those I love. I always try to have it both ways!

shut the front door....wolverine??? for reals, yo? that is the most awesome fridge foto ever! i have to admit that i'm jealous of your menagerie o'pics. my fridge used to be the "place to be" but our realtor made me take everything down last year, then we sold our house, and are now in temporary digs, so the fridge is a lil barefaced. *sads*. i'll just have to live vicariously through yours until i get my very own kitchen with my very own fridge and can bring back the glory days!

I can see us! :) I love your fridge wall, and I loved you for keeping my flattering Christmas picture from a pre-pregnancy Christmas up for 2 years. hahaha

Even though I've seen all those pictures, every time I come to your house, I find myself staring at your fridge.

I, too, love looking at picures of friends and Greer! Hence, I post Greer on the front, and friends on the side most seen by me and visitors! Aren't we lucky to have such great friends and family!

Do you allow long distance strangers to be on the fridge? Don't crush my dreams...:)

Alright new goal for 2010 make it to your fridge! Maybe I'll hire actors to stand in for us to up our chances, there's some serious high class DNA going on there.
