Super Big Black Background!

You know when you get the knock on the door and you think, "ohmygawd, someone stopped by unexpectedly and I don't have my bra on. Where did I put my bra. Could I possibly answer the door in this t-shirt. No, how could I still be in my pajamas? Oh, wait - I hear footsteps walking away... UPS! YES!" And then you open the door, and there it is, the pot of gold, a big ole box with the word, AMAZON written all invitingly up the side. And the kids yell, "Is it for me? Is it from Grammy?" and you yell back with glee, "NO! Its for ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!". I love that.
Then I grab a pair of scissors, slice the box open and throw the scissors on the floor yelling, "Don't touch those, they're dangerous..." while dumping packing peanuts willy nilly all over the living room.
Its my backdrops! And my backdrop stand! Woohoo! Lets go take some pictures! Oh, Chloe has boogers all over her face, and Phoebe is refusing to wear clothing. Thank goodness for facebook!

Tina was kind enough to drop by the very next morning to help me take photos in front of my SUPER BIG black backdrop! (Say it fast 5 times) And I am loving it! It won't fit in my "mom cave" (Photo Studio) but it works great in the garage. I even got my hair lights up, and doesnt her hair look shiny and fantastic?!

I love Tina. I am inspired by Tina. I am in awe of Tina. Tina runs "Barefoot Momease" which is a GREEN spa here in SLO. She is just moving into a new space (Where Kids Kut Hut used to be) and will even be having a manicurist to make it a full spa experience! Okay, I was wondering how gross manicurist stations always smell (no offense Yvette) and then Tina reminded me, she's running a GREEN spa, so no nasty chemicals. Oh. I didn't even know you could paint nails without nasty chemicals! Duh.

She's awesome. and getting a massage from her is like taking a tropical vacation where everything smells like those tropical plants, shoot I can't remember what they're called, but you know, they're white and when you get off the plane in Hawaii you breathe in... well, its like being on vacation and then when you get really stressed out because your kids won't even TRY the pineapple juice and won't go to sleep in their own queen sized bed but have to crawl into bed with you, even though you're on vacation and were just really hoping to cuddle up with your hubby and you feel like screaming becuase they won't be quiet and you just want your mom to hold you and tell you its all going to be all right, that's what getting a massage from Tina is like.

Well, let me compact that: getting a massage from Tina is like smelling tropical flowers while your mom holds you and tells you everything is going to be all right. Okay, maybe its just like that for me. But I like it.

Here are the photos from the maiden voyage of the Super Big Black Background. You can click on the photos to see them better :)
