So here we are

on a very warm, but sunny Tuesday here we live. My husband is working from home this morning which is great, at lest today! ;-) We have our storm door scheduled to be installed today! I'm very excited about this! Although I do find it interesting, that now, I find gifts such as this storm door, to be just as exciting as when I was a little girl getting that new barbie doll I wanted. When did that all happen? When did I grow up and start enjoying things, such as appliances and doors, as beautiful wonderful gifts! I find it so funny! I do miss those days of getting fun new "toys", but now, I do suppose those "toys" have become altered to fit my "age". ha, all well, I suppose this is all part of growing up...

Anyway, not too much exciting has been going on, (as usual). I have done some photo shoots, which went great! I was so excited to do them! I'm still struggling to figure out what colors to paint my house, and yes, I am still uneasy about the BRIGHT GREEN room... all well. This week, one again, we will be heading back "home" to NJ. We will be staying for the week, but this time, Tim's on vacation. I hate thinking that returning back home to where we both grew up as vacation, because it used to be my life that was other's vacation... and now I'm in their shoes and I'm returning there for "vacation". Ugh, it's a jumbled mess. I just miss NJ. I miss my home.

Well, that's really all. Nothing new, nothing big. Hopefully I'll be getting together with my sister-in-law to take photos of my beautiful niece while we are in NJ. It will be good to be "home".

a go and no go day....

So, today was my second interview for the job I applied for. I think it went well! In fact, I think it went very well!! I'm excited for future possibilities! After my interview this morning, I ran home to go pack up my things and get the dog to head back up, once again, to NJ. It was a nice drive!! Not too terrible. I came up here right after the interview so I could be here to do a photo shoot; well, that was the no go part of today. I never heard back from the couple I was supposed to shoot yesterday or today. So that never happened. But all is good. The day ended with some GREAT sushi and mochi ice cream!!!!!!!!!

Not a shocker, well, there goes the ratings....

I'm done with show.

My 70th Post!

So this post marks my 70th post!!! I wish I had something extremely exiting to share with you all, and I know I've been totally slacking on posting. My apologizes.

Anyways, We have been busy traveling back and forth from home in MD to home in NJ. It's bee crazy! My days today and tomorrow are packing up quickly! I've already done a ton of errands today and I still have more to do, the we have volleyball tonight, (as long as it doesn't rain; it looks like the weather is a little bipolar today). Tomorrow morning I have my second job interview in MD!!! Crazy!! Then I am driving up to NJ to meet my hubby and I have a week full of photo shoots; which I am utterly psyched about!! Tomorrow, as long as all is still a go, I will be shooting a couples "engagment" photos so they have some to disply at their wedding reception on Friday! Then wed. hopefully all is still a go to shoot 4 little boys, all cousins! then on thurs. I will hopefully be shoot for my cousin and his wife, pictures of their (semi) new baby girl.

So as you can see, it's a pretty busy week, but I'm totally excited about it all!! hope you are doing well!! have a great day!

Can anyone out there give any guidance about shooting in raw format??

If you haven't already noticed...

I don't blog very often, most of the time it's because I don't have much to blog about. (well, I often do blog about not blogging about nothing. woah.) Well, today is no different, haha!

Saturday a few friends came down and we were in a volleyball tournament. My friend Jana and I had a great time playing doubles and came in second in our division! Tim and his friend James, did ok too. The point though, we all had a great day and it was fun! And I want to give a BIG thanks to our friend Steph who came down with Jana to watch us and support us as we played, it was so nice to have someone there to watch us for once! She was also kind enough to snap some photos for us, since while I was unable to be behind the camera this time because I was playing! so here are some photos some from Steph, and some of the boys that I was able to get.

Well, tomorrow morning is back to NJ for us. Tim has to go on travel there again, it's nice to get back home and see friends and family, but now it's beginning to become a hassel driving back and forth. But this week we will be playing in a fundraiser volleyball tournament at our old church in NJ, St. Paul's UMC. The funds will go towards the missions that the church helps with. It will be fun! I'm at least looking forward to it.

Well, I suppose that's all for today; at least there is an update for you! HA! :) hope you have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Wordless Wednesday

Well, well, right now blogger is giving me problems uploading pictures to my blog for today's wordless wednesday. So, for now, I'll just do a post.

Not much has been going on. I'm back here in NJ with Tim while he is on travel for work up here. I always enjoy coming back to see my friends and family, but it really stinks when I get stuck in a hotel room for the entire day. I don't have a car to get anywhere. Which really stinks, but it's ok I suppose. Tonight we will be getting together with a bunch of friends to play some volleyball which will be nice and we should have some fun. Last night we went out to a nice dinner with Tim's parents, sister, and grandmother. It's was nice, but I felt like a fool because it was a nice restaurant and everyone looked so nice and there I was looking like a bum! All well, it was still a nice evening. I always hate that I never have anything to write about. I wish I did but I guess I don't have much of the creative mind... I apologize... Well, later today I'll try posting my pictures for wordless wednesday, hopefully it will work later. Well, I hope that you are having a nice day!

So Much in One Day!!

So Yesterday was our 3 year anniversary! It was such a wonderful day even though it was rainy! Yesterday, I also had a job interview which was very nerve wrecking since it's been months since my last job interview, but I think all went well. Yesterday we also finished painting and putting back together our morning room. It's the first room in our house since moving in that we painted and thankfully it's all done now!! So as you can see our yesterday was a very full day! I also got a storm door for our anniversary and I cannot wait until it comes! :) (I do find it odd now that I'm older the type of gifts that excite me, I mean common... really, a storm door is that exciting as an anniversary gift... all well, I guess it's part of growing up..) So I still have to get the picture I took of us on our anniversary onto the computer, but once I do that, I'll post it; but for now, the picture of our completed morning room will have to fill up your aesthetic amusement.

this is a basket that we got when we were in Africa that was the original inspiration for this room. Although it has faded and most if the basket is not as green as it used to be. but you can still see some of the original color there on the bottom.

So here is the room all finished and put together, there are just still a few more items to get into the room, but you get the idea. We also got those placemats while we were in Africa.

I think we have decided that this room will be our Africa inspired room!
So here is the picture of my husband and me on our 3 year anniversary (yesterday) before we went out to dinner last night!

So, You want to know who I am..

Well, in this post, I'll let you in a little bit! Mrs. M over at her blog did a post a few days ago on how you can tell a lot about who a person is by the type of music you listen to. I agree with that and so I figured I would let you in on a little of who I am by putting my iTunes on shuffle and giving you a list of the first 20 songs that come up on my very wide variety of music.

My top SHUFFELED 20:
1. Jai Ho! (from the movie Slumdog Millionaire)
2. That's All - Michael Buble
3. Come Back to Bed - John Mayer
4. One Love - Bob Marley
5. Brown Skin Girl - Sounds of the Caribbean (instrumental)
6. Pocket Full of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield
7. Call My Name - Third Day
8. Hurricane - Jimmy Needham
9. Bubbly - Colbie Caillat
10. Because of You - Kelly Clarkson
11. Underneath Your Clothes - Shakira
12. Never Alone - BarlowGirl
13. You in Me - Big Daddy Weave
14. South Side - Moby and Gwen Stefani
15. Home - Michael Buble
16. One by One- Enya
17. Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas
18. Cry Freedom - Dave Matthews Band
19. How to Save a Life - The Fray
20. Turn Me On - Norah Jones

So there you have it! That's the first twenty songs that came up on shuffle, (although I did skip through similar ones, like multiples of the same artist, because then it wouldn't be as mixed up, especailly since like 7 Michael Buble songs came up through shuffling!!). So now I suppose you an get a sense of who I am, well at least a little better! :)

Oh... and tomorrow is our three year anniversary! I can't believe that 3 years have gone by already!! Wow!! :) I'm so happy and so excited for what more of our future holds together!
