Happy Hump Day Friends!

It's my beautiful Mama's birthday today. She's the BIG 56. She would probably kill me for putting this out on the world wide web, but hey, that's what daughters are for?
(My Mom is on the left. Workin' it like Madonna. She won best 80's outfit.)

And because I've been all sorts of B to the ORING lately on here...I am linking up with Leigh with Wee Bit Wednesday!

what color best describes you + why?
Lately, I'd say YELLOW. I'm happy, sweet, and sour when I need to be. Kind of like a sour patch kid. Muhahahaw. ;)

how have you changed in the past year?
The only thing that has changed significantly is the fact that I started my photography business. It has been a blessing and has taken off faster than I ever thought it would. It's a blast and it allows me to be creative which I absolutely love. I feel that I've also changed in other ways as well. I've learned to be frugal. I enjoy the small things in life. I've stopped caring about what other's think. I used to be TERRIBLE about this, but I know I'm a really good person with a good heart and quite frankly, that's all that really matters. I feel that I've also changed in the aspect of truly finding out who my friends are. It's been a hard road to go down, but I know that those who matter most, are here for me whenever I need them and vice versa. To sum it up...I've learned to not sweat ALL the small stuff. ;)

have you ever had any surgeries?
Yes I sure have. Wisdom teeth...and... ;) Any guesses? Hint: I don't have breast implants.

why did you start your blog?
I started reading blogs in my free time when I moved to Austin and couldn't find a job. I got inspired and thought, Heck, Why not!? I love to take pictures, and I like to be random, so here I am. ALMOST a year later.

what are you looking forward to this summer?
MY VACATION THAT STARTS NEXT THURSDAY! Can I get a booty shake and a Whaaa whaaa? Holla. fo. a. dolla. baby.

do you have any family traditions for the 4th of July?
Sort of. We usually end up at my brother's house. We swim, we BBQ, we chat. You know. Fun and Sun!

what’s something new that you’ve tried in the past few months?
Antiquing! OMG! I'm already IN LOVE!!!! I don't know why I got hooked, but the antiquing bug bit me, and it bit me GOOD.

what is the perfect a/c temperature?
II like to be if I had it my way, it would be 68 degrees in my house. :) (*cough*hubs*cough)

what was the last movie you saw in the theater?
Hangover 2.

what song do you think everyone should hear at least once?
Sir-Mix-A-Lot- Big Butts



I want to do a vlog. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do it on yet. Do any of you have any ideas? Questions? Send them my way.

Toodles and noodles.

? Don't ask.
