Another note to self...

... about the coffee pot. That I just got out last night for our special meeting company. That I hadn't used since I recieved it as a graduation gift...

So, here goes. Do not (got it? NOT) open the lid while its brewing. Hmmm... letsee, is this working? NO. Don't do it.

Ouch. Steam burn.

Ahh... Can you smell that? That's the smell of my stupidity... It's wafting across right now..

Note to self....

... don't put more toilet paper on the roll while sitting on the toilet.


Because the toilet paper could miss the slot, the rod could spring across the room, and the toilet paper could roll just out of reach.

You know where I'm going with this... :)

I had a photo shoot with Laney the other day and got some pictures up on here and Facebook... check them out!

Have you got a case of the Monday's?

Sooo.. nothing to post about really.

Drizzly rain outside, no class today because our instructor was gone, spring break is officially over, and, of course, it's Monday.

Love it.

But I'm feeling better.

So that's good.

Serendipitous Sunset

The sunsets have been gorgeous lately.. not sure if it's because of the changing of the seasons, or whatnot... but this was on the way home from Wisconsin last weekend. It was amazing!

Isn't it ironic that sunsets are the most beautiful when there are clouds present? I think it's symbolic of life. The cloudy days can be the most rewarding.

A few minutes later:


Lovely day outside... as I've been out once to get the mail and that's it.

And it's spring break, so I'm supposed to be working on my wedding album, photos for assignments, cleaning the apartment, etc. or at least doing something.

But no, I'm listening to techno music and vegging online hoping my sick-induced brain fog will magically disappear and this bowling ball I've got for a head will lift.. or at least fall off.

But this has helped me amazingly... If not for this, I'd still have a sore throat and have a 14-pounder on my head, not just the little 10-pounder one (yeah, the one I'm forced to use whenever I go bowling because my arm is too weak).

If your local health food store doesn't carry this, tell them to. :) You can take 2 pills as often as every 20 minutes. When I was sick for like a week, Joel got over it in a day with this stuff.

Aw, aint I cute?

Sarah and I were messing around last weekend, trying out different things and letting me practice with her lights. This is one shot she happened to get of me. :)

Yes, I know...

... it's been forever..

... and I never update anymore..

Well, go cry. I'm too busy. :)

Let you in on a secret. I shot 4 assignments this week, had the workers over for 2 nights, and was in Wisconsin Thurs night - today.

Another secret. We're looking at buying a duplex!! Had a couple mortgage appts on Friday up in Wisconsin... some hopeful looking prospects. The actual rooms like bedrooms, bath, etc are all smaller than our apartment here in IA, but we'll have a *basement* and *laundry*!!! Ahhh.... dreaming of basements and washers/dryers...

Busy week..

WPPA was great! Missed that memo? Check the photo blog. I had a great time with Sarah Orlando, my cousin and a great photographer all in one. We got to chat about all sorts of things, which is probably why we only got 4-5 hours of sleep a night! :)

I've got a crazy week ahead. Today I'm working at the store in a bit, and then tomorrow (Tuesday),I have class, and a re-shoot with the Simons family (that just wasn't a good deal on my part last time) and the workers over. Wednesday morning I have class, and then I'm doing a photo shoot with Bruce, one of our workers. Right after that I'm getting a "mock-engagement" session out of the way for my weddings class with one of my high school alum. Thursday's pretty normal with classes and Friday we're heading up to Wisconsin again, but to be with the in-laws this time. Maybe I'll get another assignment in on Friday at the shop, too.. we'll see. :)

Now, to schedule in some sleep time..
