Foto Friday: Official 50th B’day Photo Shoot! #BoomerBabe!

Here are a few images from my recent 50th Birthday Photo Shoot! I LOVE working with  Billy Brown, my favorite photographer, who just happens to be my husband! We first met 30 years ago when I walked in the back door of his photography studio and we have been making pictures, and everything else, together ever since. However, there were about fifteen to twenty years, the years of raising children that I didn’t feel like having my picture made. But, now that I am an Empty Nester, we are back and having so much fun creating fun photos again!

I will say it isn’t as easy as it used to be! I forgot how much strength and stamina it takes-I couldn’t move for the next two days afterwards!

Anyway, I feel like making a photograph is the same as performing in a show. Every photo is a mini show. I hope it entertains you! I’ll be adding photos every friday.

Thanks to everyone who follows!~Sunny:) xo

Here’s Looking at 50!

“High in Heels ~ I’m Tripping!” #FreeGift: Oxygen Mask

In anticipation of my big birthday coming up, I’m taking a walk down memory lane on a sole searching journey through my first 50 years. I am reminded of just how important a role my shoes have played in my self-development over the years. In fact….

I love shoes, I always have. And, I really love stilettos. Thankfully, my husband does, too-on ME! Very early in our marriage, in order to convince him to support my shoe habit, I knew that I would need for him  to have a shoe fetish. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. The pair I wore the other night, though, was almost too much for him for so little on me. But, I honestly think it was the sticker shock that left him gasping for air. I had to remind him that the higher the heel- the higher the price, and I couldn’t decide if the Oxygen Mask that came as the “FREE GIFT” was for me to use when I wore them, or for him when he found out how much they cost. Either way, we were both fighting over it, and I really do feel that when a pair of shoes cost that much they should throw in an extra mask.

I have a feeling I’m going to be needing that mask more than ever as the big day arrives!

#ThrowBackThursday

Herb Alpert “Whipped Cream” Album Cover

Cover-Whipped-Cream-and-Other-Delights

I grew up listening to all the classic swinging tunes my dad loaded up on his console stereo and played continuously through our house. I loved all that music, and still, it is my favorite and almost exclusively in my playlist rotations, even now. I remember finding this album cover of Herb Alpert’s “Whipped Cream” album wedged in with the hundred’s of other albums he had in his collection. I felt like I was looking at something meant just for grown-ups. I also clearly remembering feeling like I wanted to be that girl! Only as an adult did I come to realize that it was a famous cover and considered one of the top album covers of all time. I really love the music, too! ~Enjoy!~Sunny:) xo
