So I have been slaving away. But don’t ask me what I’ve been slaving away ON.. I seem to have a slight problem with painting everything over and over again. But that’s another post.. I am happy to say that I have been working on my writing often, and I have actually been getting some things done around my house.. It’s decked out tackily in Halloween and one of the bigger accomplishments- my garage is almost clean enough to park in (As long as you don’t count the five pieces of furniture I bought last Saturday). I have had tons of fun photo shoots over the past couple weeks, and wanted to show this one..
I had the pleasure of working with a sassy little crew of ladies..
Do we love the tutus?
Super intense tea party. Many more cuties to come.. I’m a horrible blogger, but I’m trying my best to keep up with my projects.. Here’s a list of things I want to show that I’ve been working on:
Bauer’s room remodel complete with refinished vintage dressers
Bentley’s finished product of a room
Our homemade Halloween costumes
Our homemade Halloween decorations
My new refinished coffee table.. in indigo
My ruffle pillows
My under construction chandelier
They may not be that interesting, but I want to post ’em!
Plus many more photos!
See ya soon! I hope…
p.s. can I just say I am obsessed with this Bruno Mars song?? I am dorky enough to admit it’s getting me excited for the new Twilight movie!!
I have been trying to keep up with so many things! Here’s some of the photography I’ve been doing… I have much more to post, but here’s a taste..
So I gotsta love me these Hodson girls! How cute is this family? And such troopers in the cold weather. I have to admit, I’ve never seen a family work the graffiti like they do. Notice the “sissy pants” on the door frame? We couldn’t help ourselves… All three cute kiddos.. Someone’s got a baptism coming up! We got extra of this cutie for her invites.. Love this one! Somehow graffiti just works better for teenage boys pics. Call me crazy, I know.. I’m sure a field of flowers would be great, too. Thanks for looking!
How fun is it for me to hold a teensy tiny baby? Especially since mine are born full grown?
I love this one.
What parent can’t appreciate that look your little one gets right before they fall asleep?
Here are two of my kiddos that didn’t make the cut for our Valentine’s Day cards.. but I thought they were too cute not to share.. I hate to post the ones that are on the card.. then it’s like you’re already seen it.. and what fun is a card you’ve already seen? None.
These are some of my cute cousins.. I always want to say nephews.. We went on a chilly Wheeler Farm shoot and they were such good sports even though it was freezin!
I feel short when my younger cousins are taller than me.. Chancey made me feel short! Or maybe just my shortness makes me feel short. Who knows.
I got to hang out with their dogs for a second, meet Bella…
and SUEY (you have to read that name in a really low voice). This is going to blow your mind, but no.. the measurements are not off on this picture. The dog is really that wide. When Jess got me my pug, Dolce.. this is what I hopefully thought she would turn into… so far no luck. I need to know the secret skills in getting your dog this awesome..
So this will give you an idea of how far behind I am.. these are some pictures from our stay in Las Vegas for Thanksgiving. My cute Christiansen clan fam, this is the Jon and Summer department. I have to say, I love Las Vegas, I could happily live there. Thanksgiving was great, Summer and Debbie’s squash soup was aMaZing. I think about it fondly daily. One thing I learned about Jesse’s brother, Jon, is that he HAtEs taking pictures. Hates it. So we had to move fast because he didn’t want to spend much time. So we ran to a nearby spot and then Summer and I had fun running everywhere else with the kids.
One of the cutest boys, ever.. Max. He’s full energy all the time.
Hunter is the most grown up kindergartner you have ever met. He speaks more eloquently than most adults. He’s such a stud. Sometimes I think Bauer is starting to look a lot like him.
And also.. I’ve been having some computer issues.. some kind of bug that always pulls up a “playsushi” game. It’s been causing me headaches and then I made the genius move to organize my photobucket.. which broke many of my links. I don’t know if I can commit to fixing it, but I might. So, that’s why you see no pictures below and only photobucket stuff.
