I seem to be eating soup with a fork a lot these days...
I've always had a random career ambition to be a hand model...really, I have.
I know it's weird and vain to have favorite features of yourself or what not, but my hands (specifically my fingernails) are the only feature I feel comfortable bragging about.
I'm weird huh?
(yep, that's my hand)
My oldest niece turns 16 today!
When did she grow up?!
Better yet, when did I grow up?!
Is it just me or is 3/4 the population of the whole world getting engaged/married this summer? I swear I get a Facebook notification every single day!
Speaking of marriage,
My brother is getting married on Saturday!!!
I'm recently convinced that in order to avoid getting bored out of your mind with salads you have to practice a level of creativity beyond what you're used to in the preparation process. Some combos taste better than you think they will. Creativity is fun!
You know when you're drawing with chalk on the sidewalk
And your chalk starts to wear down and get really short
And you scratch your nail on the pavement as you're drawing? BAAAHHH!
Why do the worst sensations in the world involve chalk and fingernails?
If I could pick another decade to live in (aside from Jane Austen's time) I would pick the 50's.
Ever since reading "Fifteen" by Beverly Cleary (read it!), I've wanted to go to the corner Soda Shop after a Sock Hop with my swell beau in his dad's newly waxed Thunderbird and sip a soda through two straws at the bar while the juke box serenades us with a groovy beat. I'd, of course, be sporting a poodle skirt, bobby socks, saddle shoes and a hairstyle akin to Sandra Dee and my beau would look like Ricky Nelson and say things like,
"Cool it, Pops. Don't snap your cap." . . . Ok, sorry. Got a little carried away.
Is it just me or does too much cologne/perfume completely ruin your first impression of someone? My nose can never see past that for some reason.
I know my sense of smell is uncharacteristically sensitive, but seriously!
So, has anyone heard the music of the sequel to Phantom of the Opera?
"Love Never Dies" by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Utter fabulosity! Yes, the man's done it again!
So...anyone want to go to London with me to see it? ;)
Is it taboo to wear bobby pins that don't match your hair color? Cause I ran out of black ones and all I have left are my sister's blonde ones. I always have a hard time justifying buying new ones, too, because I bet I could find a whole package of them if I took the time to look under couch cushions, in pockets, and through dryer lint and vacuum bags
...along with spare change and buttons.
Yesterday, I officially ended my career as a professional portrait photographer and "turned off" my photography blog. Yes. And while there may be a collective, "WHAT!?!" from the masses by that news, I feel really good about it.
Rest assured that I'll still take photos for fun and do shoots for my family, but that business just isn't for me. More power to those of my friends who like it: Exhibit A & Exhibit B
Graphic design on the other hand...WHOOP WHOOP!
TOY STORY 3 COMES OUT THIS WEEKEND!
I love Pixar mucho!
Last, but not least,
I am lovin' the summer sun!
I love when the days get longer and the nights get lighter!
