painfully hip road trip photo shoot – a month later and all the greater!

in case you haven’t noticed, amber and i have been strangely absent.  (from here, as well as the other inter-web haunts we frequent.)  

this is not because we don’t like you any more.  it’s just because you’re kind of pushy and self-centered, and honestly, we’re tired of the incessant stories about all the boys who are “so in loooove” with you, and the way you always borrow our clothes and never return them.  (that was a joke.  a really horrible one.  in fact, i should erase it.  but i’m not going to!)   have i mentioned that i’m severely sleep deprived?  that’s probably worth mentioning…

why the sudden lack of posts and extreme exhaustion?  

well, ladies and gentleman, in 6 (7?  i can’t do complicated mathematical things like count the number of days between now and next thursday!!) we will be performing a holy union between painfully hip and the painfully hip design collective, and wellwornroad and the non-existent wellwornroad design collective, and combine our love forevermore beneath one roof in tucson.  i will be taking her name, because no one knows what the hell mine is.

(don’t act like you didn’t see this coming.  we’ve only been together for what, like two years now?!  at what point did you think biological clocks started ticking?)

so obviously we’ve been partying it up like the bachelorettes we will soon no longer be.  i didn’t wash my hair for four days this week, and amber started a fresh batch of kombucha.  we have sort of this “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, where if we don’t say, “hey, what did you do today?” we don’t tell.  but we keep forgetting not to ask…

yeah, ok, it’s not funny.  when are you going to get to the point, diana?  this is stupid.
well that was mean.  fine.

without further ado, i present a couple behind-the-scenes photos from the painfully hip road trip/design collective photo shoot in corpus christi:

krystal aebykrystal aeby – our gracious hostess and the “without you, this never
would have been possible” of the shoot.  plus she gorgeous too, huh?
do you want to hate her?  i did.  but you can’t.  she’s too freakin nice!


produce culturethe (equally beautiful) boys of produce culture, fame, who not only let
us use their phenomenal gallery/studio, but also did the shooting and editing.
are you guys single?  all of you?  i’ve got one week of freedom left…

ps. i totally made that dress…  that’s why amber is marrying me.


behind the scenes take 2“behind the scenes” take-2.
what’s better than pretty girls and a picturesque window?
(although i guess that doesn’t count, because she is a pretty girl.)

ok, i’m in desperate need of some sustenance and a rest break if i’m going to continue on with this day.

in the meantime, i guess i lied – i have to show you one more picture – and it really is the final one.  i made this dress too:

green dressit’d been pointed out to me that i have a “thing” for green dresses…  whatevs!

i’m going to go take that much-needed nap, but while i’m asleep, work her down!   get some pictures and stories out of her!  we know she’s got ’em!

and in the meantime, if amber wont share, i’ve posted a few more pictures over at wellwornroad.  don’t let her get off that easy though!  we will harass it out of her!
