craziness | mid-week montage

whew. it’s only wednesday and boy am i already feeling the weight of this week. the kids were cray-cray at school yesterday (must be a full moon). i still love them to the moon and back, but would it kill them to not chase each other with pointy mulch? haha. let’s hope today goes better. 😉

without further ado, here’s the second installment to the mid-week montage. i can’t believe it’s already been a week since the last one. time really does fly the older you get.

what happened:

  • i have been SLACKIN’ BIG TIME on my exercise. i am going to be as a hot air balloon if i don’t get my butt in gear. i should go on a walk after this and enjoy this weather. yeah, that’s what i’ll do. 😉 HOLD ME TO IT!
  • hung out with justin this weekend. we caught the tail end of the HSC football game, hung out with some of his friends and sister, and ate mexican food. twice.
  • sooooo… do you remember ashley and scott? well, i had the pleasure of shooting ashley’s beautiful twin sister adrienne and her adorable family! 🙂 and justin helped too! he’s becoming quite the photographer. YAY!
  • i have been a complete tv junkie lately. i have so many shows that DVR is working overtime to keep me up-to-date haha.
  • justin and i watched dolphin tale (totally ruined his macho-man cred haha), but it’s SO CUTE! definitely check it out!

what’s up next:

  • okay. i have been super excited about this ALL SUMMER!!! my first DOUBLE HEADER WEDDING WEEKEND IS HAPPENING!!!! yay yay yay!!!!! i am so excited because both of the brides are AWESOME! ok, gonna use some more exclamation points now. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
  • alexi MIGHT come home this weekend. yay! now i need to convince amanda to do the same! 😉
  • after this awesome DOUBLE HEADER WEDDING WEEKEND EXTRAVAGANZA, i will be going to the fair!!! i absolutely love the fair. it’s so fun, colorful, and just down right interesting! my favorite thing, though, is probably the food hehe (again, such a fatty 😉 i’m most looking forward to the corn dogs (favorite!), fried pickles, kettle corn, homemade lemonade, and fried oreos! i can feel my arteries clogging already.
  • my friend lindsey and justin will be helping me out this weekend as second shooters! so excited to work with them again! 🙂
  • i would love love love to get a better workflow and more organized. after reading lauryn galloway’s awesome post on the subject, i really want to get my act together haha. hopefully i can get started on that ASAP. i feel like being organized would make my life 15684903358291753913 x’s easier. not exaggerating. 

here’s to an awesome week. want something to get done? go out there and make it happen!
