Finance Friday

03 May 2013

Today's the day ladies and gents! I get to start putting money away for the 52 week challenge (If you don't remember what that is look here). And I've officially decided that money will be used for a trip to Disney!!! And what makes this all so great aside from the obvious?! My best friend has decided to join me in this financial excursion. WOO! Occasionally, I'll be posting and updating (not every week, I assure you...because that would be stupid...and obscene) so you can see my progress and maybe decide to do it for yourself. I even made a little mason jar for it and everything. Yep. I'll be sure to post pictures later on so keep looking! Comment and let me know if you're gunna try it too!

There she is 52 week challenge jar. I'm considering getting all crafty and what not but for now I've only chalkboard painted the top. Which I will show you later...once I've bought chalk (smart...i know). I know...I'm obsessing over this mason jar...but you know what? It means a trip tooooo DISNEY. And if it's cute too? Well what the hell :)

Manic Monday

22 April 2013

Time seriously has been flying lately. ESPECIALLY the weekends... I swear I'd be a more apt, happy, and far less unruly individual if weekends were 3 days. Let's just make Monday a weekend day so it can stop having a bad rap.....OR I guess I'd be satisfied if we were allowed mid day naps.

I...I HAVE time for that. Plenty.

SO Mondays truly just suck now. I'm tired, I miss my bug after a whole weekend of cuddling, I'm cranky...and then I get to work and this is what happens.

So now not only am I a total bitchfest, I'm unproductive.

But you know the one thing that would make all this BS go away...permanent 3 day weekends aside? A VACATION.

To say I'm a traveler would be putting it lightly...seriously. I've been to Spain, Aruba, the Bahamas, Punta Cana, Quebec, Florida, California, Myrtle Beach...And many of these places I've been numerous times. I can't get enough. I love warm weather. I love beaches. I love DISNEY. And that, my friends, is where I plan to vacation next. My last vacation was to California to visit one of my best friends but we did spend a day there, but one day in Disney? Never enough. Even Disneyland requires AT LEAST 2 days. So this momma is saving her money starting now. Bug NEEDS a trip to Florida, and it's been far too long since I've been.

Photo courtesy of the Walt Disney World facebook page that never ceases to remind me how badly I need a freaking trip back.

I CAN NOT WAIT for my bug to meet the first person who has and will always have a piece of my heart...


Just Keep Shooting

03 April 2013

Today's post I'm totally going to make worth your while. Why you ask? Well, because not only is today's post hilarious (as per usual) but it also comes coupled with some good news. No...not good news...GREAT, AWESOME, STUPENDOUS, KNOCK-YOUR-FUCKING-SOCKS-OFF news.

To begin, one thing I've learned in my photography journey is to just keep shooting. I had read hours and hours worth of factoids, advise, and tips on how to better you photography and get the best possible results. And one of the best tips I've received thus far, hands down, is to just keep shooting. Sometimes without setting up or perfecting the shot you can get this ridiculously awesome picture. Some of the best pictures I've gotten (this really only applies to moving subjects) are from continuous shots. Now I do still take my time throughout the shoot but, man those unplanned shots can really be something else. Now I know you want to see my all time favorite unplanned shot. Well here, take a look at this gem:

This is my puppy Sadee (as seen in "Ode to a Nikon") in all her sad, sad glory. Yep. If she had a facebook she DEFINITELY would have untagged that bad larry. I was so proud of taking this shot (and a few of the good ones of my bug, which i will follow up with in another post) and I would have never gotten it (or the mindless hours of laughing that followed) had it not been for my "just keep shooting" mantra. Just keep shooting, just keep shooting, shooting, shooting.

And that brings me to my ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING SO EXCITING news. IT HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN ANNOUNCED. After 10 years. TEN LONG AWAITED YEARS, they finally announced the sequel to Finding Nemo!!!

Not only am I fucking obsessed with Disney, Pixar, and all things related, but Ellen Degeneres is one of my favorite people of all time. Combine that shit together and you got one happy mama. I'm not so excited about having to wait another 2 years for it to be finished....but I think one of the biggest reasons I'm so elated is because this time around, I'll get to share it with my daughter and I can't freaking WAIT :D
