Boots and Babies

Happy weekend! I still have one more day off ahead of me so neener neener! I love three day weekends (DUH, WHO DOESN'T?) What's new around here? Well... yesterday I scored some vintage silver cowboy boots. A seen in both pics here. Now I'm like a rhinestone cowboy or some shit like that.... some people call me a space cowboy..... whatever.

Also... I have bangs now. And so does Rudy. We both have new hair-dos. He looks great don't you think? I look like a twelve year old with wrinkles. Which is just weird. But I'm trying to roll with it.

Today I shot pics of my best friend Michelle who is baking a baby which is due to arrive in April. It's a hard thing for the two of us to pull off.... serious, artsy pregnant pictures, mostly because we die laughing every time we try to act serious about it. The baby is probably laughing too... or crying. Crying because it's doomed to hang out with a couple of dorks like us.

I can barely stand it waiting around to get a load of this kid. It's a little more than two months away now.... until the person who I will corrupt with candy, baked goods and dirty secrets about their Mom's past will be born. Baby and I have a lot of work to do.

Ah, I LOVE the boots! Those are beyond awesome. You know, my favorite pair of shoes are pewter Frye mary jane pumps. But those boots...well, kick ass would be the best way to describe them.

I love how Rudy is admiring them in the photo. And you look adorable in bangs!

Your photos of your friend are beautiful, but I am not surprised--you're an amazing photographer!
