Rockin' a family photo!!

I could not be more excited about next month!  My Bucky will be 80 years old and we will be celebrating big time!!  For the first time, in a long time, my family will be in the same zip code for almost 2 days.  The 2 days will be filled with family, fun, cake (I love cake), and I have arranged for my friend, Bethany to take a family photograph of me and my people.  Let's see.... all together it will be 2 grandparents, my parents, their 4 children, their son in law, their 2 grandchildren, my aunt, her son, his wife, and their 2 children, my 2 cousins who are living big in the LA (Louisiana), my uncle, my other aunt, her husband, their 4 children, and a partridge in a pear tree.  So, if you are good at math  then you know that is a lot and if you are not so hot at the numbers then that will total..... 25 people!  Yowza!  I know, that is gonna have to be one big set up!
This is one of the last photographs that I have of some of our bunch...
it's from our wedding rehearsal dinner and we are missing some folks!
Here's an oldie but a goodie....
Now, onto me and my friend to find the most wonderful spot (in super cold February) for a photo.  I have been looking a images that I have seen on the Internet, and I have found a few that we could maybe try out......
We could all dress up in matching pajamas???  Thoughts??
this photo was found on Awkward Family Photos website , submitted by a woman Cruella
We would need an incredibly large tree branch for our bunch!
this was found from Pro Photo Support

 Red is my favorite color!

I love a photograph with a picture perfect setting!
I always love lots of color.....
I kinda like the idea of matchy matchy?  Why not?

Then again, I do love the photos that are not really posed... more natural?
Aren't these pictures a hoot!  I found the last 5 from the website, Awkward Family Photos!

Now that I have some ideas on how we should pose and options of the backdrop, I must start looking for an outfit!  Nope, for this picture I refuse to wear my "mom uniform" of blue jeans and Razorback t-shirt!  I want to be stylin' and profilin'!
PTL for FB and all of the fun shops that I have found from them having a FB page....
Elysian Boutique , this is a new boutique that has opened right here in my lil' town of Bentonville.  Never been in, but I have fallen in love with some of Lisa's things...
I adore this look, and it just screams at me (like a take me home scream!)
Then, I love these colors...
I do not think that I can squeeze by big ole child birthin' hips into that skirt, but maybe it is a stretchy fabric?  If I tried it and it looked like 2 pigs fightin' underneath a blanket, I would for sure put it back, but I know the pre-child birthin' hips woulda totally rocked this!
Then, there is another store that is in Fayetteville (just a hop, skip, and jump away... 30 minutes down the road).... Riffraff or they have a FB page...FB Riffraff
They always have cute stuff y'all.  Something like this might be cute with a solid color scarf and denim jacket?  I don't know....
Or these finds are cute too!  I found this shop on FB too, The Blue Door Boutique
Love this chevron print dress with boots!
Love the green color dress on the right, maybe with leggings and boots?  It's obvi way to short for moi!
I really like the middle dress and the stripe dress.

I love the green color but love the style and print of the dress on the right... with boots... yes, please!!
Or maybe just a solid color top, with leggings, and boots.

Well, I have 3 weeks to get busy and find an outfit for me, the boy I go with, and our wee babes!  Let's just hope that our family picture will be as awesome as the one's we have seen today!  Bethany has her work cut out for her!!
