I bought some blue felt yesterday to try out as a backdrop for future photoshoots, specifically the one I have on Saturday of a 6-month-old girl. Ava was kind enough to indulge me a bit today, so that I could play, I mean, practice. ;) I think I need to iron it to get out the wrinkles (you can really see them in the first pic) and find a way to get it to hang tighter on my backdrop stand, but I think it will work out pretty nicely and is a relatively inexpensive backdrop. I was pleased to discover the light in my livingroomRead More →

Haven’t had time to blog lately, but I figured a little recap was in order, so here goes… Ava officially learned to jump (with BOTH feet off the ground at the same time last night)! It was pretty exciting for all of us. :) I’ve been busy proofing my two photo sessions from this weekend. Neither went as well as I would’ve liked (mostly weather-related problems), but I rolled with the punches and am pleased with several of the pictures. Maybe one of these days I’ll get around to posting a little gallery from some of my recent shoots. The weather was gorgeous today, so,Read More →

Since both my husband and my friend’s husband were going to be out of town yesterday (both on separate trips), we decided to get together to hang out, have dinner, chat and watch a movie. Obviously since our guys were gone, we had the kids in tow. You would’ve thought it was “date night” for Ava and Creed, more than a relaxing night for the mommies the way those two kept kissing and hugging each other. I swear they gave each other at least 10 to 12 kisses last night, plus several hugs. LOL We joked around that we were just there to chaperone. OneRead More →

Since making the switch to vegetarianism back in January (I think it was), we’ve been consuming a lot of soy in this house. Not just tofu and tempeh, but I’ve been buying a lot of the fake meat products in the freezer and refrigerator sections. This is in addition to drinking soy milk. Well, guess what. I think I’m WAY overdoing it. All of this soy consumption is causing me major gastro-intestinal issues. I won’t go into detail (you don’t want to hear it – doh! no pun intended), but things have gotten a little too gassy around our house lately. A mama on oneRead More →

I had a dream about some old friends (and a former friend) last night. This time they were all going on a cruise without me, but I heard about it or was invited or something at the last minute so I decided to hang out with them for a bit. I didn’t buy a ticket for the cruise so I could only stay on the boat until it was about to leave the port. (Weird.) Anyway, I don’t remember much about it, but it seems like me and my former friend were able to work out some of our issues, though it was definitely awkwardRead More →

Since we have a little extra money at the moment, I decided to treat myself to a few new things this weekend. First off, I finally got a pair of Crocs. I’ve been wanting some for well over a year now (maybe two or three, I don’t remember) but just never took the plunge. Jody was buying a new pair of shoes today so I took advantage of the moment and asked if I could get some too (he hates Crocs by the way), and he indulged me. Yay! I got the fuschia pair. I wanted to get a pair for Ava too, but theRead More →
