Dear Mom

Thank you for...

Your wisdom, grace, and fabulous sense of humor

Never giving up on me, especially when I gave up on myself

Answering the phone at 2a (multiple times) in college

Never buying me a crimping iron or letting me get Glamour Shots (you really DID know best!)

Teaching me to say yes ma'am and yes sir

Finding the silver lining amidst the thunder clouds

Marrying dad. I still think you're the cutest couple ever.

Playing with my hair for 28 (oh fine. 29) years

Never once saying "I told you so"

Introducing me to New York City and New Orleans

Teaching me all about geometric proofs and fabulous shoes

Holding my hand and saying "they're just jealous," when we both knew they weren't

Asking me to sit in your lap, even though I'm bigger

An awesome sibling, who loves you just as much as I do

Teaching me that just because you're right, doesn't always mean you've won (still a work in progress)

Splitting a coke with me on all of our mall trips

Your sense of direction (and I'm NOT referring to maps--yikes)

Showing me that it is entirely possible to be a mother who works--and be damn good at both

Telling me that it's not polite to cuss... in public

Loving Michael as your own and constantly telling me how happy you are that we're together

I could not ask for a better mom. And in this case, I'm not only right but I've also won.

What Time Is It?!

Yep, it's busy season.

I know you're all thinking, "Wow, didn't she just finish busy season?"

No? No one was thinking that? Just me?

Twice a year I tend to crawl in my turtle shell and disappear for awhile but by the looks of my dear ol' blog this has been the case for the past 6 months.

The good news? I am much more calm about things this time around. I've done this once before, which most assuredly does not make me a pro but does help me sleep better at night. Well that and the heavy dose of Benadryl (I kid, I kid).

My work friends and I went on another shoot this weekend (my mom asked me not to kill anyone and I had to tell her this was the OTHER type of shooting--one that does not involve guns) so I'll post the pictures in the next few days.

However! Since I tend to be behind the camera as of late, here's a few of yours truly looking pale, two weeks shy of 29, and puffy haired. Damn you humidity! Daaaaamn you!

Also, below is a link of pictures from our time in Austin and New Braunfels. I believe that weekend deserves a post as well.... we'll see how it goes. Let's just say I could move to Austin tomorrow and be happy.

See ya later alligators!

Taken with a Lens, baby. (Kidding--it's called a "Lensbaby")
Texas hair.

I might have wrinkles and loose skin, but I have fun shoes (I can already hear my brother saying, "WHAT are THOSE?!" And my reply? Shut your face.)

Bonus points if you can figure out what I'm doing... (Hint: It's rude, crude, and socially unacceptable)
