You all know about the photo shoot we did awhile ago... it have hit the shelves. The magazine “Baba en Kleuter” wanted to do an article about Surrogacy and our story,  and called us.

If you know me and saw me and suro-sus in the mag, you will laugh your ass off. The ones that did see it , are now phoning and  laugh. They supply the clothes and they did our hair and make-up!

On that day me and suro-sus could not stop laughing, if we look at each other it was chaos, we look so funny!! When we saw the clothes on the rail, we both thought..PLEASE NOT THE ORANGE one for me.....at the end I was the orange-winner and I just hate ORANGE SHIRTS with a PASSION. Everyone knows that. And with olive green.....geeeeee . Not me or Suro-sus wear alot of make-up ever and my hair was a joke.

Most of the time if you see me, I will have hair bands on ( I love them and have allot of different ones, I am addicted to them) as you all can see from my photos. That’s one of the reasons, with my stork-party why everyone that attend, have had something on the head, it was a surprise for me

On the shoot day they gel all my  hair to the back with a teased bubble ( defiantly   not the style for me, or most people I know) Suro-sus, Luv and her kids could not stop laughing that day and in the car for the next few hours we laugh and laugh. Like suro-sus said, we look better when we do funny-dressing! And Luv said, I look 55.

When my mother saw us she laughs and when my brother enter the room he laugh and think I look just like Stefanie Forrester from the soapy “ the Bold and the Beautiful” If my family call me on the phone , they wants to speak to Stefanie.... big joke.

It is just so not us!!! Suro-sus said she looks like she arrived at the back of and “bakkie” After the shoot suro-sus said , if any one see this they will think shame this poor “Old Lady” with twins! Yes I look like somebody over 50!.

Like someone text me...”What were you thinking being dress like that?” Thats not one for the photo book, no one is going the surrogate route if they end up looking like that....you took some strain, girl.

And most of the calls.... what happen to your hair?

Luckily we can laugh at ourselves.....that I can tell you we have had FUN ! and we have had a peek at what happen backstage.


  1. Congrats on your beautiful twins. Love your "voice". You sound like a riot. I think when you look back on that shoot, you will always howl at your Snooki-do. And isn't that so much more fun than some run-of-the-mill photo shoot? I'm Tracey, here from ICLW 92.
    I blog for my IVF docs at Long Island IVF so I can share my stories. I'm hoping ICLW and NIAW can help me find new blogs and spread the word about LIIVF's free Micro-IVF cycle contest kicking off this week. Details for those interested are on the blog or Long Island IVF's FB page

  2. Sounds like it was a fun day with a lot of hilarious memories... Congrats on your twins!! They are absolutely adorable. I love your banner photo ...

  3. Oh, too funny. What is it with hair stylists? It always looks soo terrible, but their hair always looks fabulous. How does that work? Also, hello from ICLW!
