Just a brief glimpse...

...of me on my first night out post baby!  I'm going to do a "body reveal" post later in the week this week.  I'll be 4 weeks post-preg Wednesday.  The last time I weighed myself was at my parents' home a week ago and I was 10 lbs away from my pre-preg weight.  I can live with that.  I'll be doing full length body pics for that post.  Anyway, back to the topic at hand.  This was me on my way to one of my bestie's birthday celebrations.  And yes, me and my braidout go hard! :)

Me and the birthday girl

Buddha Babe

I have a love affair with Buddhist statues & paraphanelia.  I have them all over my house, to my very devout Christian mother's chagrin.  (I'm rebellious to the core.)  Here is a vintage one that my grandmother gave me a long time ago, it's one of my favorites.  Just as I'm writing this, it just struck me--my grandmom has a few Buddha statues in her home as well.  It must be her influence. I guess if an apple does fall far from the tree, it probably ends up closer to another tree. :)


Oh, and the hair is still straight--washing it this weekend though. I have to admit, this is one of the first times I've actually REALLY enjoyed the straight hair. Could I be getting over the whole "big hair" thing?  Things that make you go hmmmmm....


P.S. I think I'm going to take a more "photo blog"-ish approach with this blog, with some fashion stuff thrown in. I've always had a love affair with photography, and fairly recently upped the ante and bought myself a DSLR & a couple of lenses and am taking photography classes. So be prepared to see lots of gratuitous pictures of mine here. Hope you guys enjoy.
