The Ball is right around the corner!!!

This year, the infamous toad will be going with his daddy and I to the ball. We've already begun planning our costumes. I think it has been decided that there will be steam punk gear. (The toad and steampunk, like we didn't all see that coming)

So excited!!! We bought the tickets on pre-sale, we have our suite booked, it will be awesome.

First shoot in ages

Okay, I got in front of the camera for the first time in forever. I clean up fairly nice still. :) I have officially fallen in love with Bob Zandiegh all over again. The man is magic. And I'm feeling better about being 30 now. A little.
