Michelle looks like she’s suffering from gas pains in that picture.
Dress is very slimming, looks fair on her.. better without the dang belt ..lipstick is too light.
What is it with her and those belts? That bluish one ruined the look of the purple gown and the one on the blue suit draws one’s eyes right to her back side because of the contrast. I’m not getting her ‘fashion statement’.
That picture was taken just before she shot the ‘coon!
The dress IS very slimming and WOULD look better without the belt but then what would Michelle do without her belt? I don’t get it...it’s almost like some kind of fetish..those belts....lol!
The dress is beautiful but it looks like she grabbed some garland from the Christmas box (located next to the Mao ornaments) and threw it around her waist. She’s probably wearing mustard heels underneath, as well. When it comes to fashion sense, her inspiration must be road kill.
The dress isn’t bad. Much better than the bedspreads she usually wears. And she’s not wearing 15 bracelets and necklaces like a wife of an African tribesman. Nice wig too. It’s not her fault that her arms are twice as long as those of the man standing next to her but her fingernails are too long. (She digs in a garden with fingernails like that?)
LOL...she loves those mustard heels too, doesn’t she. rotflol!
Shelly feeling rather regal.
Bet Obama didn’t eat the ham - it’s pork .. against his religion.
Tighten your belts people .. Obama’s lifestyle needs to be kept up!

2 lg. butternut squash, peel & cut up
2 onions, cubed
2 apples, peeled & cut up
1 lg. can soup stock (College Inn)
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 c. heavy cream (optional)
Place squash, onions and apple pieces in large soup pot. Pour in soup stock to cover. Bring to a boil; simmer until tender not mushy.
Drain vegetables; save stock. Puree squash, onions and apple in food processor until smooth.
Return puree to soup pot. Slowly add in some stock to give bisque consistency. Do not make it too thin. Heat through and stir.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add dash of nutmeg or to taste. (Can be frozen at this stage.) If desired, add heavy cream (about 1/2 cup).
Two Squash dishes on one menu? How tacky! I guess Moochelle-Antoinette’s le petit hameau garden had an overload.
Let ‘em eat cake!
Thanks for the great pics.
The First Lady of South Korea is lovely.
Moochelle-Antoinette and her huge caboose, not so much. Even the obvious plastic surgery she has had cannot stop her from being a big bag ‘o ugly, or wipe that smirk off her face.
You are very welcome.
Thursday night? Hmm, I picked up a pizza on the way home from work that night after putting in about 10 hrs.
About 450 days until the Katrina entitlement looters are thrown out of the White House.
