One Step closer...

So I have some very fun and exciting news. I have booked my first wedding. By Oct. 09 I will be crossing off one of my goals. I can't believe it, I am just so excited. Lots of work to do before then. I have to update my camera and lens and then get a new computer and programs. But I'm confident that I will get this accomplished by Jan. or Feb. 09 which will give me plenty of time to get ready. Things are starting to come together its just crazy. Gotta run and pick up the little man from Day Care. We close on our new house tomorrow, pray that everything goes right!

I love making Photo Cards...

So Tom and I took Reid out for a little photo shoot down by the Red Ceder River. He sure does make it challenging to take pics, he's just way to nosy its hard to get him to be still. I guess thats what a one year old is all about.

So here are two photo cards I made. I know your probably wondering why Im thinking about Christmas already but I thought I would just play for fun.

My Fav. Pics

So I thought I would post some of my fav. pics from the year that I haven't posted in the past.
As for an update....

My house is a complete mess since we are moving to the appt. tonight. At one min. I feel like where getting close to getting things moved and then I take another look around and where not even close. Only two nights left to get everything out, AHHHH......

I just have to get through the week. On an fun note my Sister Kimberly received great news that she will be graduating from College! Im so excited and proud of her. Congrats Kimberly.

My Dad's 51st B-day!

What a week...

Am I glad its Friday!

Work has been just crazy. Every day after work I feel like my brain is mush. Well anyway this post will be short I can't even think anymore. I did however get to play with some pics that I took over the weekend. I did a fun story board for my sister in-law Sheri of her kids which I love and I hope you do to! I just love the editing side of things.

I week from today and we close on our old house and our new one. We plan to move into the appt. mid week next week. The fun begins......

Enjoy the pics!

I've Got to Do something...

Ok so.... I live to shop some days. Have you ever just had the issue where you can't control your self and you have to spend money. I even get a rush from buying grocery's because its called SHOPPING. WHY????? I can't stop. I wish I could get paid to shop. So when I shop, guess what doesn't happen? You guessed it, I don't save money and I don't get closer to my goal of a new Laptop and Camera!

So hopefully this week I can get some time to sit down and make out a budget for myself and Tom and I. That way we can really manage our money better during our remodel. (10 days until we close!) Im hoping by doing a personal budget I can work to set aside money for my big purchases and then also have some play money for my shopping sprees (which wont be huge but enough to control the urge.)

On a fun note over the weekend my niece Jordana was my model and let me practice some photography with her. It was fun. Hopefully I will get them posted soon.

Country Girl

So... For those you who know me, know that Im a CITY GIRL! Well for those that know me now or still know me, know that I live out in what I call the Boon Docks, country living at its best. We have a lovely home on 3 acres and soon to be done with and on to a new home on 15 acres which will one day be a lovely home. Well any ways my Husband is a country boy all the way and he's always trying to convert me. I must say hes tried his hardest and has been a little successful (our home/location!) but I always end up finding my way back to City Living (shopping is and always will be my all time hobby!). However I think he got me last night. He just recently bought a new four-wheeler which he already had one but this one is 4X4 so its bigger and better. Well he thought it was time to teach me how to drive the older one and then go out for a drive with Reid in tow. So I agreed and sure enough it was a very fun time. Don't get me wrong I've been on 4-wheelers before but I was always the passenger so being the driver on your own machine is much better. Perhaps Tom and I just found a hobby we can do together? :)

Im always trying to find things that Tom and I can do together because its hard sometimes when you come from two very different back grounds growing up or you just have to many hobbies gender specific that neither one whats to even think about doing. Im sure most of you know what Im talking about. I guess we will just have to wait to see if it really turns out to be something we do together!

Love, Live, Life...

A Walker, Teether and Winer....

Sorry its been so long since I've posted its been a long few days. I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor day! I got to spend it packing up my house which was good because now all thats left is the stuff we need at the appt. or stuff thats going to the new house. I did get to see my parents, we celebrated my Dad's 51st b-day on Friday at Dean and Sues (my fav. bar in menomonie!) and then sat. we worked.

So during that time my little munchkin has been a walking machine, hes everywhere! The past two nights he found an empty cupboard and climbed in except he gets himself stuck, its cute! He also started teething again (the runny nose and creakiness is BACK!) Last night it didn't matter what we did he just wined all night long. I hope this passes quickly its no fun to listen to.

As for the house stuff, where working on all the paper work and trying to get that all done by 9/19 we also get the appt. a week before so plenty of time to get everything moved over. I just want to get it over and done with I don't like this in between stuff right now. Well I hope all of you have a good week and hopefully I can post more often then before.

Love, Live, Life....
