Weekly Winners: August 10-16

For a change, the Roo-girl consented to a photo shoot -- mostly because she was showing off some coolio things she got on her first solo all-day shopping trip to the mall with a girlfriend (yes, I made her call me regularly).

I am, of course, sneaky that way, because although I DO have photos of her modeling a green bandeau and showing off her exciting score at Abercromie (distressed jeans for $20! Whooooo!), I am opting to show you the WINNERS from that shoot.

Which have nothing to do with jeans, eye shadow and t-shirts.

The strange thing is that on Saturday, we both had appointment at the eye doctor for a contact lens check, and the doc made a comment that I have actually thought for awhile but had not yet put into words.

Her facial structure and appearance has changed dramatically in the last year, taking her from middle school young to a true teenager.

The difference that you can see in her bat mitzvah photos from a mere year ago (omigod, how did THAT happen!!!!!) compared to today is stunning.

For comparison purposes (not Weekly Winner purposes), here is a shot from exactly a year ago:



Here's my girl today:

Huh. That's an attractive look. Let's try again.

Now, wait here just a minute! Let's get down to business now, Roo-girl!!

Ahh. Just right.

Oh, god, Janet. You're Sceeee-Rooooood.

You are taking pictures of her in those $20 jeans and mailing them to Abercrombie, right? Because that modeling job would easily put her through college. And into a house. :)
