August Recap

In two days we'll be on our way to Cali for Labor Day weekend and I could not be more excited. I don't normally announce when we're away from home before we actually go so any intruders or loiters can count this as their official announcement. I'm feeling reckless.

Follow my tweets to see what we're up to on our trip or just be patient and you'll see it on the blog eventually.

Q&A follow up - Did you read it? I worked pretty hard on this. About as hard as I work downing a Drumstick ice cream cone in 10.6 seconds.
What's in my bag? and do you even care?

Dark are the days - I dyed my hair Back to Black

Impromptu Photobooth

On Saturday I spent some time with my mom and my nephew. While we were at Red Mango (this frozen yogurt hater has been converted) I got a few camera phone shots of Hagen while he hammed it up. The back of the booth was a great backdrop.

Summer Journal Entry

{august filler}

A little follow up post to the mini balcony makeover I did a bit back.
this is actually much bigger now
The birds have eaten all of the bird seed I left out for them. Fred actually was very interested in me feeding the birds that he has vowed to destroy. I think it has left him utterly confused as to why I would betray him like that. 
The snails have been out in full force too. I'd get up early on a Saturday morning and there would be slimy, shiny streaks all over the balcony. At one point we had about ten snails living out there. This summer has seemed extra moist this year. Yes, I just typed the word moist and I've decided to leave it there. I would love to take all of the credit for not killing any of what I planted earlier this summer but the weather has helped greatly.

Catching up finally

I'm a big fat cheater although not totally since I do take a photo every day (I am a blogger for crying out loud) I just lack at posting it to my tumblr on the daily. So here we go, all caught, I just hope that I can keep it going. (I used this software to make the collage)

my thoughts exactly

Jenni's Rockin' Maternity Shoot

{image heavy post, no pun intended}

I knew I wanted to do a maternity photo shoot with my friend Jenni but wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do. One night she texted me and said we should do a Stevie Nicks theme and it turned into a Women of Rock shoot. We tried Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin, and Joan Jett. We had fun but it was sure hot this day. I felt bad for her because it was way too hot for her to be putting on different clothes and hats and wigs. She's original, different (in a good way) and not like every other mom out there so we wanted to do something unique just for her. Her baby bump isn't quite big enough - she's due in October.

And just for fun (more fun)
