Valentines Day

I know Valentines is on Monday but Willie and I celebrated Friday night. He took me to Ruth's Chris. It's a steak house on Richmond. A real upped place that is total not our style but the food was to die for. I would have taken a few more pics but I felt like everyone was looking at us. Now that could have been because we were the only ones there under fifty. Not only was the food good my drink was also great. They called it a Black Cherry Tini. I would have just called it heaven! Anyway I loved my dinner out with the hubby. Happy Valentines

OMG!!! Check out this Blog post from a girl that my cousin Jeremy tattooed at a convention. His work is great but I could not go through the pain. This chick must really like tattoos! I'm a chicken! Great Job Jeremy!! Oh if you don't take the time to read her post and only look at the pics. Everything that happened to her is NORMAL!

Last weekend I went to the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention! Friday I spent the evening with my friends Cultural Enigma (founder of Cult of Angels) and Photographer PK Brazil.

Saturday was THE BIG DAY. The often mimicked but never duplicated Jeremy Miller from Austin, Texas, joined me on my newest tattoo adventure. The dreaded kneecap!! Here we are out on the floor. Miller at the machine. Jung under the needle.

Before I share the photos of the tattoo, I want to thank everyone who was in charge of the convention, everyone who stopped to say hello, and the lady who put that extra ladle of cheese on my philly steak. Thank you. Oh, and to Hot-rod Chrissy from Facebook for being bewildered after I told her who I was, saying,"You look like a fifteen year old." So, thanks to whoever was in charge of the lighting. 

The final wipe-down came about six hours after we started. Most of which were grueling, but Jeremy and another artist from his shop, TJ, were a calming agent. Professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant-smelling young men. Thanks to their efforts to travel over 1,500 miles to Philly, I am now the proud owner of this high-heel stabbing an eyeball.

Below is a photo taken at brunch the following morning, Sunday, by the fine people at Inked Magazine. Quite swollen!

Now, today, three days after I got my kneecap tattooed, I am STILL LIMPING. And not just a slight limp that I can hide with some swagger. It's an "I can't straighten my right leg more than 130degrees" birth-defect waddle. Don't laugh, its not funny. There are pictures below showing the bruises I have today. They were taken after the skin was freshly washed and dried. You see the yellow discoloring all around the tattoo?... that is a giant BRUISE that's covering my entire knee (an unfortunate effect of getting tattooed over a long period of time on certain areas)

It's also stiff, scabbing in a few areas, and swollen. I cannot wait for this one to be finished healing! Needless to say, I'm not in any rush to do the other knee. Don't let all this whining confuse you, I am thrilled with the way this new piece came out. Thanks again to Jeremy Miller from Pigment Dermagraphics.  And speaking of having awesome tattoos...

I ended up taking home the THIRD PLACE OVERALL FEMALE award from the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Tattoo Convention. Very honored!! Can't wait to see all of you again!

Especially Rhea at Hardnox Clothing Company!

Sleep on Baby

Dear Lord
Thank you for all your favor and blessings you have raining down on my family. You are hard at work on our behave bring us to a new level of greatness. Jordan has been the biggest and best blessing of my life. And now that he is sleeping through the night!! Words can't express how thankful I am. I ask that you continue to bless my family as we navigate through this first year of parenting. I also ask that you give Jordan peace in knowing his parents will get the hang of parenting and will be great at it one day. The Kingdom, Power and Glory are Yours Now and Forever.

Super Bowl

Super Bowl Sunday was great. Jordan and I had lunch with the Lauqua's at Papa's. Then headed to Jason and Cassys for the Super Bowl party. Even though none of our football squares hit Green Bay did WIN. For the first time in like 6 years the 1/2 time show was great. Black Eyed Peas with special guest Usher and Slash really made it worth watching. I would comment on the commercials but for the first year ever I really did not watch them. Not because I did not want to but because there was so much going on it was just to loud to really hear them. All in all it was a great party and a Super Game!

This is Texas not NYC!!!! I can't believe this crazy cold blast. I think they should just shut the city down after we hit 30 degrees. I hope to leave downtown by 2:00 today. After that I think it's going to be a mess on the roads.

Today is baby boys first day on Carrots! He loves them!!!


Holy Cow!! It's COLD!!! with the wind downtown and the cold air it's unbearable. I only had to wait 3 minutes for the bus and my hands went numb.

Play Time

Just had to share these pics. Jordan got to spend time at aunt Jamie's house last week. She always takes pic of the kids playing. I just love the last pic. I feel like Jordan is trying to tell Katelynn she is squeezing him to death.
