Tic Toc, tic toc...

I haven't blogged in over a week - yikes! Time slips by too fast these days. In fact that is what I've been thinking about lately. I was complaining to my wonderful husband that I hadn't taken any new shots lately and his response was: "You've been busy baby", and my response was: "That's no excuse!". Both statements are true, do all you ladies out there do it? I mean, I don't even have a little one at home and I struggle with getting everything in that I want to. And besides not taking photos every day like I want to, I think about:

~getting together with friends I haven't caught up with in a while
~learning more about photography every single day
~staying thin and working out (uggghhhh!)
~spending time with my family (both sides of our family)
~giving the pup enough attention
~giving my husband enough attention :)
~cooking for my husband more
~excelling at my new job
~shopping (ok, that's just something I like to do, but never seem to get to)
~telling those close to me how much I love them every time I think of them
~projects that need to get done at the house
~the future
~and on and on the list goes

So, time keeps slipping by at NASCAR pace, but we all need to take time to enjoy the little moments in life. Well, that is my goal each and every day from here on out!
Hopefully, I will be able to remember that when I am racing around Dallas like a mad woman!
Have a fabulous day!

Monday? Already?

How did that happen?!
The past week or so has been a blur and unfortunately I haven't had a chance to take any pictures lately and I'm itching to get my eyeball back to the viewfinder :) Well, that's not totally true...I took some pictures for my new company (stock photos) on Friday and it turns out they are going to put them into our brochures and on our website. Kinda cool, right? My first published photos - yay me!!! I won't bother to put them up here, cuz they are a little less than exciting.
On a different note...
My most wonderful-fabulous-husband and I had the BEST weekend together...we laughed and giggled and cuddled and enjoyed just each other. Don't you just love it when you have a great weekend like that? We are big Top Chef fans, and so on Saturday night we decided to take a Top Chef recipe from the website and try to recreate it together....HA! Let me just say, the food was just ok (we're no Top Chef's), but we had so much fun cooking it together - and wow! Did we make a mess :) But it was a super fun night and I think we are going to do another Top Chef date night again soon. I highly recommend it :)

Have a fabulous day (what's left of it!)

A new schedule to get used to...

A new job = a new routine to get used to! For the last couple of months I have been able to stay home (because I have the most fabulous husband in the world!!! I know what you're thinking - but no mine is!!!) and now I must get used to a new schedule and less time to work on photography. Oh, the real world comes with so many issues....
Anyway, I wanted to post a few more pictures of my photo shoot with Maritza and her precious son Elijah today - they were so wonderful to shoot - you can definitely see where he gets his striking good looks from :) I hope I will get to take pictures of this precious family for years to come; can you imagine what a heartbreaker he is going to be someday?!

Enjoy and have a fabulous day!

Week 37 - Vroom, Vroom

Happy Monday!!!
Alot has happened in the past week - I returned from my wonderful trip back home, I got a new job (starting tomorrow) and had a FUN photo shoot with the most adorable mother and her son this past weekend. I could have taken pictures of them all weekend long!
The challenge over at I heart Faces this week is Vroom, Vroom - and we just happened to get some adorable shots of little E on a tractor, so I thought this would be perfect!
Head on over to I heart faces for more great entries for this challenge!
Have a fabulous day!

Home again, home again!

Ahhhh....the weekend was so fantastic! Family, home cookin', games and fun! I love Labor Day weekend. For over 15 years my family has been getting together for "the family campout" and each year I crave it more and more. I've been in Dallas for 10 years now, so I only get to see alot of my family this one time of year since they are all back in Iowa.
This year we were short several people because everyone seems to have some form of the flu - yuck! We missed them dearly, but we partied it up for all of them - playing crazy Minute-to-win-it inspired games, eating like we've never eaten before, enjoying the Fabulous weather (we got lucky there) and laughing and visiting.
I love my family - they are crazy and fun!
Cheers to next Labor Day - I'm already looking forward to it.
Have a fabulous day!
