Middle man.

Today my middle man is being honored for being on the honor roll. It's funny he started middle school this year and has done well but you could tell he missed some of the things they did in elementary school for example when he brought home his report card he said well looks like they dont have awards for middle school. I told him how proud of him we are and he was given a reward for a job well done.... so what shows up in the mail last week ... an invitation to the awards assembly at the middle school. Middle man left the house today all dressed up and walking on air. Gotta love the diva that he is...
have a great day.

A new love

So if you have read my blog for log you will remember that a little over a year ago I had to have my beloved weenie dog put to sleep. She had seizures and iwas for the best... (I know this but it is still hard to wright that.) Any whooo Today I saw a friend of mine who has weenies and she told me that one of her dogs had gotten killed and that she was/had been bottle feeding two little girls. She showed me a picture and my heart just melted. She is a long haired black and tan weenie so she has all the qualities that I love about weenies but she doesn't look a thing like Okie! This is all good news for me since I brought her home tonight!!! she is the most adorable thing I have ever seen. I plan to love her to pieces!!!

wacky weeding weekend!

This weekend I am shooting the wedding of a dear friends son. Nothing to spectacular about that but then you don't know Owen.... This young man is a Zombie nut, so the wedding maybe all nice and normal but the reception is going to be a ball. the first dance is a zombie love song, how cool is that! the bride has a good sense of humor so I am hoping they let me do some out of the box stuff. Have a great weekend everyone.

Helllooo I know I know it has been forever since I have been here... Well I have been here just not posting. I have been busy and lazy and had not much to write. I do have news that i wanted to share with someone and thought that maybe just maybe someone out there would be happy for me cause those here at home think I'm nuts! I have a job interview on Tuesday! Its for a major wedding photographer here in Ohio and he likes my work. I will get to do a few test shoots with him and then if we both like what we see I will have the job!!!! yeah OK it's crazy but it's what I want to do. I feel like I am dying in the current job and this would force me to shoot for real again! Here's the reason that people here think I'm crazy.... It's located 3 hours from my house. It would mean travel but hello I traveled before and for a lot less money so to me it's a no brainer. we shall see. keep your fingers toes and other body parts crossed i really want this job!
