During WPPI last month, we went to a little party called Airhorns & Lasers, where they had the awesome Smilebooth.
Since we had a photo booth at our wedding, I’m a HUGE fan of photo booths in any shape or form. They can be manned by a photographer (like our wedding), they can be user-run (like the Smilebooth or Push Booth), and however you do it, it’s always a good time.
With my Dallas gals, Celina, Valerie, and Magaly.
So, I don’t do a serious face very well. I look, well, kinda constipated. Don’t worry, I wasn’t!
Again, me and serious, not so much friends. My girls look sultry, and I look silly. And I’m okay with that.
One of the fun things about WPPI was that I was reunited with my girls from California, Emma and Aimee!
I need a lesson Charlie’s Angels type posing. Just sayin’.
Aimee is catching some serious air!
If you’re looking for a photo booth that is user-operated in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, be sure to check out the Push Booth, created by the dynamic duo, Cesar and Tanya Perez. Here’s a shot from the Faux Wedding, where they debuted the Push Booth.
She’s silly. She’s funny. She’s so cool. Yeah. It’s my mom. And it’s her birthday!
I remember growing up that I had the “cool” mom. The mom who would volunteer as a chaperone on field trips and everyone one always wanted to carpool with us. Because she was that entertaining.
My mom is a great storyteller. More like a FANTASTIC storyteller. There’s just something about the way she recounts an event that always has her listeners craving for more. Anxious in anticipation for the next part of the story. Or a joke. She’s the designated family member to retell a joke or share a story. She’s just that good.
I’m also so proud of my mom. She graduated this spring with her Master’s Degree in Nursing Education. She took the fast track 18 month course while juggling her full time job. Her advisers said that it often isn’t done. “Most” students can’t complete the program and go to work full time. But my mom isn’t “most”. She’s one of a kind. She took on the challenge and showed her program advisers what success looks like. She’s a remarkable teacher and her students love learning from her. She synthesizes teaching obstetrics with practical application and some humor. Who wouldn’t want to learn from her?!
My mom’s not scared of looking silly in front of others. Or the entire internet.
Here’s us with my aunt/godmother/mom’s sister in our Wedding Photo Booth
People say we look alike. What do you think?
Happy Birthday Mom! I love you and proud to call you MY mom!
