Photo Shoot for Douglas' 16th Birthday





 







Okay, I guess I'm old now. Douglas turned 16 yesterday and a lot of women my age are having photo shoots and showing off outfits (Hell, I do it.) but these girls do it pretty darn well. So, Douglas is now 16 and I'll be 35 in a couple of months. Time flies peeps. Soon we will be handing over the keys, watching her get a job and checking out colleges. She wants to be an FBI Agent at this point. We will see if it keeps.

Sage and friend Chloe model outfits picked out by Douglas. Chloe says she looks like she is looking for a boyfriend in this choice. She is a funny girl. 

We at dinner at Fat Tuna a new restaurant in Williamsburg. I will review it soon! I made Douglas a photo album I made from Walgreens (for $20) that made her cry. She can be emotional, she is a Cancer though. Have a happy weekend guys!
