you don't look a day over fabulous...

...quoted by the one and only Steven Tyler.
Today was my first solo on-location photos.  Meaning: I journeyed off the safety of my land and found new and different trees to stand in front of.  I didn't do it on purpose.  I was going to take my pictures like normal, at the end of my driveway- but then these men showed up to work on our house, and that's weird to have strange men watch you take pictures of yourself, right?
So I left, feeling somewhat disappointed, and WAY too early for work.
I drove past this park, and thought to myself: You can do this.
and Melissa was right all along, it is liberating.
There were only two people out in the park, and they were getting their cardio on.
I mean, I won't go too crazy on these locations by myself, I mean this is Memphis city and if you value your camera (or life)- the last place you should go is behind a building by yourself or anything.

Just kidding it's not that bad.

I don't know if you watch American Idol. 
 I had really strong feelings against it, because I feel they have an unfair preliminary judging system, etc. 
(One of my BFFs, Amber, made it really far in the competition, 
just to be told they have "enough country" singers.)
1. Lauren Alaina, you are lucky to even be in the competition 
{I know that everything happens for a reason, Amber's name will be in lights...Look for it.}
 But my boycott ended when they hired Mr. Steven Tyler.
I grew up on Aerosmith, the Magic School Bus, and corn bread, folks.
If you don't follow me on twitter, then you don't know that I love Paul + Hayley!
Seriously, watch this and try not to be impressed.
It is like a beautiful love child of Elton and sparkles.

Thank me later.
