Shoot! I did it again!

January 23, 2010

I totally ignored my “personal” blog! Dang it! Sorry about that. It’s not that I don’t WANT to update my blog, it’s just that I keep forgetting to. It’s actually a known fact with everyone that know’s me that I have the WORST memory ever! I actually started taking a vitamin for this little problem, but when I ran out I threw out the bottle and forgot what they were called! They obviously weren’t working. 🙂

On a different note. I’ve kept crazy busy here and loving it! I never thought I’d say this but I LOVE it here! I’ve made some great friends already, and acquaintances. My Photography business is BOOMING to say the least which is fantastic! I absolutely LOVE my job. Really though, who wouldn’t love photographing beautiful mommies to be and their sweet new babies for a living?!

My prop collection is starting to take over my “dining room”. So much so that I decided to regroup and organize. While doing so I started adding up the costs of everything I’ve bought… and wholly molly… there’s a lot. We wont put a number on here for fear of my husband actually deciding to master the web and read this, so lets just leave it at “a lot”. Anyhow, after some major brain storming I decided that I don’t have nearly enough props yet, and I don’t want to spend “all” my income on props, soooo. I self taught myself to crochet! Yeppers, I have spent the last 3 days sitting in bed like a little ol’ granny, working the yarn, and you know what? I’m actually pretty good if I do say so myself! I’ve made 2 beanies for my girls cabbage patch dolls (those were the practice ones). I also just finished the most adorable little premie sized pink top hat yesterday for those itty bitty beautiful baby girls, and now as we speak I’m making my very first “elf” hat. It’s turning out soooo cute! ideally I’d like to show it off on the top of a beautiful little baby head but unfortunately my next baby is not due until Feb 12th and I’m not sure the maternity models I have coming up would want to squeeze into a tiny elf hat. So as soon as it’s done I’ll be sure to get a photo of my projects to share on here. I’m not so sure I NEEDED another hobby to add to my life, but I must say it has been very therapeutic. Crocheting is very relaxing once you get the hang of it. 🙂

Onto other things. The girls are still doing awesome at school. They are growing up so fast! Madde was so excited the other day because for the first time ever she made her own lunch, including her pb and j sandwich! And Phoebe was equally excited that she poured her own cereal complete with milk! I officially feel less and less needed everyday. 😦 Although I must say I’ve very proud of both of them.

We’ve got a birthday party to go to today. One of the friends I’ve made has a little boy that just turned 1, that should be lots of fun. And tomorrow we’re going to hit up a Pet Expo here in the city. I was really shocked when Darren suggested going because I think he’s been trying to avoid pet talk since we had to put Abby down last March. I must say though, I think we all miss having a furry four legged friend in the house. I’m not saying we’re going to get one, I’m just saying it would be nice.

Anyhow, that’s about all that’s happening here. So off I go to finish my hat, I’ll try to get a picture of it on here by Monday. Chow for now!
