  4. Late to the party as usual! Why are musicians always late? (But never to the buffet table.) 😉 You can use my picture on your blog anytime you want girl, I’m honored to be anywhere on this piece of real estate. What a great photo! I missed you guys SO much at BlogHer. Wasn’t the same without you and your toilet paper hats and your smiling faces and…well…there were no fake boobs in the swag bags this year. Whattup with that? Next year! I love the pic of you and Viv with your mom. You’re a fun bunch.

  5. Your photos are more fun! Thanks for sharing =) #ww

  6. My husband has become the selfie king and it makes me laugh.
