small/tiny/baby town USA.

Grangeville is everything you would expect from a small, in the middle of nowhere, western town. Yes, that includes wranglers, big ass trucks, antlers, and a surprising amount of color. 

What a lovely use of space. Mexican restaurant has some extra room on their marque, WHY NOT share it with the local taxidermy extraordinaire? Also, my mind goes on overload when imagining all that "special effects" could entail. Laser beam eyeballs? Anteater turned Roomba? I hope so. 

Why yes, I would LOVE a deer themed haircut!

mtn road trip.

Silver City is the perfect day drive. The two lane highway has gorgeously desolate scenery, and it takes just enough time to feel like a road trip, minus the leg cramps and gas station bathrooms. I took Alena and Connor for their first time and it was fantastic. We hiked a mountain of loose rocks, ate delicious mother-made sammies, peed outside, and evil knievel-ed it up some cliffs for an epic photoshoot.


I've never before noticed how quickly the state of Idaho can turn into something far more comical.

Ridiculous things I convince my family to do:

The transformation was quick. And stylish. And surprisingly believable. Encouraged by 6 cousins bored at their grandma's house. 

Presenting my 13 year old cousin in all his original glory:


 And his metamorphosis into a pink cowboy hat wearing, duck-face-making, sultry look giving, booty popping LADY.

and yes those are my clothes. and yes those are orange boobs.

boot camp for babes. (but really, just for alena. because she's a major hottie.)

My movie sharing/photo taking/lipstick applying/adventuring/partner in crime Alena is the hippest woman I know. Two weekends ago she packed her Subaru to the brim and trekked from Salt Lake City up to Boise and a weekend of outrageousness ensued. These are just a few pieces of evidence to prove the following:
1. Alena truly is a babe.
2. Red lipstick amps up any photoshoot.
3. The cheesiest, most hamball photos are the best.
