He's coming...

Here is a photo of my cute little nephew, Jackson, who I am so excited to meet I can barely stand it. Mariana's due date is in nine days!!! I'm nervous for her, but I know it's all gonna be okay. I get to go be with her when she delivers, along with Mom and Chris. I wonder if he's going to be able to handle it. I wonder if I will! I hate seeing people in pain, and it would be awful to see her suffering. Still, I know that this is just what women do everyday. Everything will be fine.

Jackson looks like he's going to look like my sister. He definitely has her nose...a very cute one! I cannot wait to scoop that little bundle into my arms and look into his eyes. He feels like he's mine I already love him so much.

I'm just very grateful for this day....

me posterize

me posterize, originally uploaded by mychinarose.

It's a chilly windy day here in Austin. Andrew is taking photos of a group of teen rappers in the studio next to me. I can hear waves of their music bounce through the walls. I'm sipping tea with vanilla soy milk and playing with photoshop. This photo I'm posting is one smiling photo of me that I don't hate (I think I'm really photogenically-challenged in the smiling department), but I thought I'd play with the colors a bit. I love vintage paint-by-numbers and am toying with making new art that looks like really old paint-by-numbers. I bought a few recently off of ebay to help me get inspired! I want to draw out the lines and then sell kits that people can use to re-paint the photo themselves.

Where does the day go? Got up pretty early this morning but now it's already gonna be 5 o'clock! I'm dreading the workweek ahead. I'm waaay not into my day job right now. It's going to be a challenge to get motivated.

In the meantime, Andrew and I are starting work on our screenplay. I thought it would be a good idea for us to set up a separate blog where we can upload ideas, photos, sample dialogue, backstories, etc. It can be a living, breathing rendition of the film as the story unfolds. And it'll be a way for us to communicate with each other during the day while I'm occupied with other things....

115 to 107

I've decided to lose the extra weight I've gained in the past two years since I moved back from L.A. I went to Shape Magazine online and they have this cool tracker that figures out a plan for you based on the info you input about yourself. Here are my goals:

Pretty cool. And I like that it works out an eating and exercize plan for you for free. It includes recipes and a shopping list. I'm ready to go!
