Southern warmth for your snowy weather....

November 26, 2010
Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving! After my two week no coke/no good coffee creamer diet, I super indulged in all the amazing food at BOTH of the Thanksgivings that we go to! It's back to business today though. Even the half-glass of coke I had last night isn't going to make me fall back off the wagon!

If you're partaking in the Black Friday be with you.

We got our first "major" cold front last night. It went from 80s and humid to 40s and dry as hell. I'...

Gobble Gobble and Dear Santa

November 23, 2010
Two days from Thanksgiving?! Or is it one day? I never know if you count the day you are on. 

Where the hell did this year go?!

So, yeah, I'm still insanely busy. Probably not really happily buzzing along like a little bee but, still busy. Is it time to write letters to Santa yet?

Dear Santa,

I would like an assistant. And a vacay.

And something sparkly. Just sayin.


I'm ready for Thanksgiving and all the chowin' down on awesome food. Remember my deal to stop drinking coke and the horri...

Busy Little Bee

November 19, 2010
Yep, that's me lately. Busy lady over here.

It's great, really. Our photography business has started to really take off and we've been booked a lot lately. It means a ton more work for me but, I'm loving it.

It's totally blowing my mind how fast the weeks are shooting past me though. I cannot believe it's almost Christmas.

Don't even say "It's still a month away."

It's freakin' here, dude. It's right around the corner and it will be here as fast as tomorrow. I'm so not ready. Looking forward t...

Eff off, 30!

November 17, 2010
You know, I was surprisingly not upset about turning 30 this year. It really didn't affect me at all mentally.

I can't say the same for affecting me physically.

My body is turning against me. It's so cliche. And I hate it.

I'm tired.

I feel worn out.

I'm cranky.

All I talk about is the weather.

I'm screaming at people to get off my lawn.

Ok, maybe it's not quite to that point yet but, things are definitely changing over here.

All my late teens and early to mid 20s I really never had to worry abou...

The Return of PINT

November 16, 2010

Though, I haven't been watching much tv lately so, I'm actually running low on sarcastic celebrity banter.

Really, fists clenched, cursing their name when the weather is shitty.

Because I'm sure this is their go-to blog.

Check out That One Mom over at Only Parent Chronicles for more of the PINT you know and love.

Snappy and TRex

November 15, 2010
I've taken the kids with me on a couple of photo shoots lately and was able to get a few good pics. A few fun shots of Snappy one day and a nearly failed attempt at Christmas card shots another day.

I say a few good ones because some of them look like this...

And this...

That whole reel cracked me up. It's worth it though when I get to pull a few pics like this...

Could she look any older in that last pic? Or any sassier? Oy vey.

At least I got some cute ones of her a few days before this shoot. M...

Honoring My Grandpa

November 12, 2010
When it comes to patriotic things, love of our country, the military and what they do for us and honoring all of it, I can get a little weepy.

Ok, I get a little weepy at a lot of stuff.

But, really weepy with patriotic remembrance. I'm definitely a proud American and when I think about the amazing sacrifice that our military men and women make when they stand up and say "I will die to save your freedoms", when they make the commitment to leave their families behind just to ensure that the ide...

Beware of Cake Boss

November 8, 2010
So, I got this new cake pan a few weeks before Halloween. It was a 3D skull head and totally cool. I was excited because I really wanted to take something to the Halloween party we were going to.

If you'll remember, I am not a baker.

I did a trial run with the cake pan before the big day because my baking skills are more than questionable. This is how that trial run turned out.

Glorious, isn't it?

Who knew that reading the directions for a cake pan would be vital.

So, staring at the horrid mes...

Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful?

November 3, 2010
Hell yeah, she is!

Even after my editing rant last week (yes, Scott, that can be considered a "rant"), it seems that I've been awarded one of those sweet little blog awards that float around the blogosphere. And, since this one is called "One Lovely Blog", I'll be on my best behavior here as I accept. Thanks to Mom-Stuff Community for thinkin' of me!

Rules schmules. Oh, okay, I'll follow the rules. Best behavior, right?

Share 7 things about yourself.

Talk about myself? Why sure! I can do that!
