Water Bottles, Road Trips & Saying "No"

Well, as you

read this post…I am in somewhere in Charleston, SC.  Well, hopefully I’m in Charleston. My friend Steph and I are driving down tonight (Thursday night) and I will be shooting two sessions there this weekend. I’m really not the BEST with directions. Michael usually drives so I’m hoping we get there ok:).  I’m excited! Steph and I casually said that we were going to take a road trip back in college but it never really happened….but it’s happening now! … in like an hour! I’m soooo not ready. I haven’t even packed! I’m so thankful she’s joining me since Michael can’t make this trip.

Gifts, Spas and SYTYCD

There are just some

things in life worth writing down and remembering.  Somethings are good, some things are bad…. but most of the time, when I look back on the bad things that I write down… months from now, they seem funny to me. So I’m sharing some GOODTHINGS and a few things that make me cringe at the moment. If you have no clue what a “GOODTHINGS” post is about, I got the title from Martha (Stewart). I like to use her first name as if we are best friends. She has a “GOODTHINGS” article in all of her magazines that share fun, good little things in life. So I’ve been doing GOODTHINGS posts for 3 years

A Day Off and Cleaning the Closet
a day off

Today I slept

in.  I got up at ten and realized my voice was completely gone. I’m guessing that was from the allergies I’ve been fighting all week, shooting a wedding on Saturday and then the combination of yelling over 60 teenagers at youth group last night. Our weekends are long… really long. On Saturday and Sunday when the rest of the world is relaxing and gearing up for a new week…. Michael and I are working. So today, as Michael got ready to head off to the office and I laid in bed, 1/2 dead… he told me to take the day off.  Even though I was only about 15% coherent at that time, I heard what he said and I decided it was a great idea.

Easter, Picasso & Cookout

I’m just warning

you, this post may be long. I have a lot to say about these three things: 1. Easter, 2. Picasso and 3. COOKOUT! It’s quite a random grouping of topics, I know.  However, they are all worthy of a GoodThings post! This past weekend was EASTER…. and I wanted so badly to do an Easter post but I have been doing really well with my rule of not blogging on the weekends.  Most weekends I’m working on Saturday and Michael and I are both involved with a lot at church on Sunday so if I added BLOGGING on top of all that, I would never see my husband! So this weekend I refrained from blogging, even though I had something very BLOG WORTHY to talk about.

Sisters, Roadtrips & Headbands

I’ve been trying

to make this happen since before I graduated college. The words “go visit emy!” have been on my to-do list for months but things have just been crazy! We would make plans, then I would have to change them… we set a few dates and then something would come up and we would have to reschedule them. It wasn’t happening and I felt awful. I wanted to go and hangout with her awesome roommates and friends but I felt like every single week, I had commitments. So this past Monday Emy called me and told me to come… THIS WEEK.  I started to explain”Um, no! I can’t! I have meetings and an engagement session at 9am
