Yesterday Robert and I attempted a photoshoot which turned into me running around acting like a crazy person while he took pictures. I was only going to put the good ones up, but he took so many and they're so much better with subtitles.
|What should I do? Make me look cute!|
|They're so pretty, I must have them.|
|Eww, the bottom isn't as pretty as I thought.|
|But it's still pretty!|
|And now I must eat it.|
|That's just silly.|
|Reaching for a leaf.|
|I got it.|
|And now I must lick it?|
|Yes, I am the World's Greatest Disco Skater.|
|Talking to sister on the phone, why are you taking my picture?|
|Alright, I'm done! Let's go!|
We walked over to the liquor store to buy Lone Star and Lemonade after I heard that it was a good combo. It definitely wasn't as bad as I thought, but I need to play with the proportions before I perfect it.

Big change is on the way. I can feel it. The wind seems to know it as well (and I think the birds do too). I'm always ready for change and welcome it with open arms sometimes creating it myself. I think it's good for the body, to break from routines or create new ones as often as possible. The trick is to not let it scare you, you must face it straight on and adapt. Are there any changes in your life going on right now? How are you dealing with it?

On Sunday night Leanne, my mom (who was visiting for the weekend) and I came home to a very disturbing discovery. Our poor little Zapatos had been hit by a car. She was our landlord's cat, but we were responsible for taking care when he goes out of town for weeks at a time, so we had grown quite attached. Zapatos was a wild and crazy cat. I typically found her on top of a fence or gate not knowing how to get down. She was always getting herself into situations that she just barely got out of. She almost always showed up for my photo shoots in the backyard. Most of the photos where you can't see my feet, she is just out of frame meowing. I'll never forget her daring and darling spirit. She was always roaming around my neighbor's backyard which I can see from the window by desk. My favorite memory of her is when I was working on my computer and out of the corner of my eye I saw an explosion of feathers and Zapatos jumping high into the air! The bird just barely got away from her.
|This is the last picture I took of her.|

It seems like I haven't added anything new to the shop in ages. These two shirts have actually been hanging with my inventory for awhile, I just hadn't gotten around to photographing and posting them. I was really hoping the dinosaur tanks would be a bigger hit, I guess it's still pretty cold in most places (which is why I keep getting requests for sweatshirts). I'm hoping that once I get my very own workspace I'll get some inspirations. I'm also going to reform the store a little. Once the summer is over it'll be nothing but sweatshirts and tote bags!
When I saw these sandals over at ROMWE I knew I had to have them because they made me do a little dance. There's something about having something in a traffic stopping color that is just so much fun. Also, highlighter brights somehow make me look tanner (and I know my legs could use a lot of help!

What a morning it has been! I made it through my first tornado warning, two very large thunder storms passed over Austin and now my car is very clean! I absolutely love the overcast, cold, damp weather that has been left behind. Reminds me how much I want to move up north...maybe some day.
