Photo Friday.

You guys are kind of amazing.  Thank you for what you wrote me in the comments section of yesterday’s post.

Ross is in the kitchen making breakfast right now, because — guess what — we have a bunch of friends in town!  I woke up this morning to find a cardboard cut-out of John Wayne in our living room, which apparently Texas Land and Cattle “gifted” (i.e. allowed to be stolen by) our rowdy friends last night while I was at aerial dance class.  Not gonna lie, it’s pretty awesome: It’s John Wayne in military garb, and he’s currently standing at attention about four feet away from me.

Anyway, instead of writing today, I dug up some of my favorite pictures from the last few months.  I hope you enjoy!

 I took this picture with the phone: Not Hipstamatic, but … something else. Oh I love you, fake lomo photo apps!

That’s me with my beautiful friend Beka, whom I miss very much.  She visited not too long ago, and I took her out to El Chile.  It may or may not have been part of a ploy to get her to move back to Austin.

At ACL: The handiwork of Magda Sayeg, i.e. Knitta Please.

A lamp at La Sombra that I crave.  I have a thing for furniture and decor made out of unfinished branches.

BABIES!!  My two adorable nephews. Does this picture not make you grin so hard?

I can’t remember where I took this leaf / tree picture (or the one above it).  But I like the way it turned out.
A metal “couch” in a yard in my neighborhood.  Played with this in editing software to get that spotlight effect.  Looks kinda cool, non?

My baby holding a gourd at Central Market.  Insert your own phallus joke here.

Me holding my friend Megan’s dog. (Well, kind of her dog — it’s her friends’ dog).  I was like Lennie with the rabbits with this tiny creature.  Can you see the look of fear in its eyes?

Work from an artist Ross and I saw on the East Austin Studio Tour, at Blue Genie.  I don’t know the artist’s name, but maybe you do.  Really dig the pop art style going on here.
happy friday!
