Haley & Bobby

I had the "opportunity" to take some cheerleading and football pics the other day... I'm not used to sports photography so it is a little new to me. I think I ended up taking better "couple" pics than anything else...you decide and give me your opinion!

His last first day...

Since it is customary for me to post the first day pics here it is... it isn't great, I had to wipe the sleep from my eyes to take it... He was up bright and early and really ready for school. Senior year, only goes 1/2 day, he is in heaven... me, not so much. It is hard to believe that he will be heading to college next year and I won't get to take pics of it. One part of me is really excited about the young man that he is becoming, and part of me is sooo sad to see the kid in him gone... I hope that he has a great Senior year, stays out of trouble, and enjoys every minute of it. These are really the days he will remember!

Yes, finally a new post, a new gripe...
So I went to buy a bathing suit the other day. Dillards was having this sale, awesome sale, which made bathing suits basically 70% off. So, stimulating the economy and fulfilling a need to wear a bathing suit that was not 5 years old on my next vacation off I go.... I walk right past the bikinis...no matter how much weight I lose, I don't think I will ever see a bikini again...I got too much baggage to hide!! So, on to the big girl, cover me up bathing suits! I find a couple of suits that I think might look ok and head to the ever dreaded dressing room. I try the suits on and MUCH to my surprise I actually like quite a few of them. So I figure hey, I never like bathing suit shopping so lets buy all of them!!! So $160 later, I leave with 5 suits. Not too bad I might add. Yesterday I am heading to the Mall to return some stuff to Macys and thought I might need to take them out of the bag and try them on one more time to make sure... then all of a sudden WTH? Why in my own mirror do these suits look awful? One that I thought was really cute with some flowers on it makes me gag. It was like the flowers had gone from boutinere size to a freaking table arrangement, a big one... that one had to go back for sure! I can see people on the beach now watch out here comes that lady with a huge flower on her huge stomach!!! So I am leaving you with a question to do some research, do they alter the mirrors they use in the dressing rooms? Is it the mirror? The lighting? or was I just freaking blind when I picked some of them out? I'm now down to 3 bathing suits... so no trips longer than 3 days or I will have to go back to the big bertha standby suit that is 5 years old!
