Photographic evidence that my daughter is a super model
This is my daughter. Isn't she lovely?
This might just be my favorite photo of her. I snapped it yesterday at May Day because I thought she looked stunning.
And my son . . . well . . . this is how he looks when he's bossing me around.
But this post isn't about my bossy son, it's about my lovely daughter.
Last Saturday I took her to Charlotte Russe to get something special for her Freshman Banquet. Fifteen minutes later we dropped $80 for two summer dresses, an undershirt, 2 necklaces, a pair of cute red shoes and a deliciousy yummy perfume called Refuge. Mmmmmm
And then I dropped another $10 to have her eyebrows threaded.
Last night was her banquet so she clicked her new red shoes together and repeated bibbity bobbity boo three times.
SUDDENLY her fairy godmother appeared and turned her into a super model.
You want photographic evidence?
But let's get up close and personal, shall we?
Why does my daughter look like she's holding a gigantic mug of hot cocoa you ask?
Because she is holding a gigantic mug of hot cocoa. (Come on, peeps, stay with me.) We're shooting a Tim Tam commercial!
One of my students gave me a bag of Tim Tam's and told me they are fine and dandy as is, but they are simply divine if you dip them in a gigantic mug of hot cocoa.
Actually what my student said was that you have to suck the hot cocoa through the Tim Tam as if the Tim Tam were a straw.
Uh, yea, that doesn' work. I spilled hot cocoa all over the outfit I was going to wear to my employee banquet while trying to make that work. (Sorry no photographic evidence available.)
But sucking on a Tim Tam does give you Tim Tam teeth. It doesn't matter how pretty your eyes are if you have Tim Tam teeth. (eww!)
Notice I'm trying to get in on the shot. I had this idea that it would be cute to have a mother/daughter photo shoot, but I had my zoom lens zooooooomed all the way.
That's how I got this imitation shot of that freaky horse on Man From Snowy River.
Wanna play dentist?
I'm right handed anyway so I switched sides in an attempt to fit both our big heads in the view finder.
I really wanted to capture my new wooden heart earrings. Can you see them? Instead of wearing my stone cold heart on my sleeve I've decided to wear two wooden hearts on my head.
After a thousand shots my daughter finally said "I am so done with this photo shoot!"
To which I said, "Wait! It ain't over till the dumb lady sings!"
(Bless my (wooden) heart(s).)
