Thug Life

Photobucket
It's tough being a thug.

Photobucket
You have to remember not to smile and give people the stink eye.

Photobucket
You've always gotta watch your back and look over your shoulder.

Photobucket
Sometimes you just want to get away from it all.

Photobucket
Then your mom lets you play with a helium balloon and everything is right in the world again.

Photobucket
Photobucket
Balloons are fun until your mom ties one around your waist. Suddenly the balloon is chasing you and no matter how fast you run it's still there. Right behind you.

Photobucket
Photobucket
That's some spooky stuff.

Photobucket
But not as spooky as the guy at the door!

Photobucket
Life in the hood. You gotta be tough to make it.

xoxo,
Rachel

Ruby wore: I Heart NY onesie from The Margot. Bow tie pants from my MIL. Cardigan and shoes from Mom via Target.

Strange man at the door wore: His great-grandpa's warm hat, jacket and gloves from Target.

p.s. thanks for indulging me in my silly photo story. ;)

Half the fun of your blog, is because your kids are so darn cute. (That, and the fact that you're so into vintage.)

Your daughter is darling. Love all the cute photos!
