I have seriously neglected this blog for a while. Not on purpose, I have so many things to write about, it’s just finding the time to sit down and get it all out.
We had a crazy busy holiday month with Harper’s 3rd birthday:
Oh that smile, kills me.
Christmas celebrations at the Botanica Gardens light show:
Poor girl was sick on Christmas Eve. Go figure.
Aaaaand, I have NOTHING from Christmas day. Yup, Mommy fail. I was too busy enjoying it and being with family. I DID manage to squeeze in a photo sesh with Miss Collins:
And now it’s January and with that brings a whole new set of “stuff”
*I put my 2 weeks in at the Y. Say wha-at!! I did. It wasn’t an easy decision. I have worked there since we moved here to El Dorado 4 years ago. It’s been a great place to work and I have met SOOOO many people working there. Why did I decide to leave?
Well chill out and I will tell you!!
*I start school in 2 weeks- My online courses to finish my degree start on the 22nd. Super excited, but super scared to do online classes. I consider myself pretty computer smart; I designed my own website, I do all the stuff on this blog, I FACEBOOK!! But seriously this online bizz has me thrown for a loop. I am blaming K-State’s website and student portal, I think IT is the one that is dumb, not me. I literally had to call up the financial aid office and ask them to walk me through what I was supposed to do, because their e-mail and website was gibberish to me. They were probably like “geez old lady, get with the program, it’s not THAT hard. Stupid non-traditional students.”
*I started watching an 8 week old baby- Landry is a doll and I have enjoyed having him so much. He is such a good baby, and I am able to get my baby fix and still sleep all night!! Pax woke up this morning (Saturday, mind you) at 7:30 and looked at me and said “we need to get up, Landry is coming.” Ok Buddy, knock yourself out waiting for that to happen, I’m going to keep sleeping.
*I started my photography business- It’s getting really busy already. I am booked every weekend in January, newborn session scheduled for February, a WEDDING scheduled in May, and it just keeps growing. This is my true passion and I want to devote as much time and attention to this. Do I know what the future holds? Nope. Do I know if this will work out? Nope. Do I have plans to make it even bigger and better? Yup. I don’t want to divulge too much right now, as a lot of things are still getting ironed out, but there are big things… BIG THINGS in store with this photography thing and with some great people who I will potentially be working with.
I can’t even tell you how excited I am for all of this, I feel that I have found “my thing.” I was always jealous of Josh because our restaurant business was “his dream” and he loved doing it. I wondered if I would ever find anything like that for myself. Don’t get me wrong, I love being with my children, and I have loved being home with them most of the time while working at the Y. Now they are getting older and I am able to focus on me. I am not trying to be selfish and OBVIOUSLY my kids will always come first. I mean who else is going to feed, bathe, and teach them that “son of a bitch” is not a polite thing to say? Please, if you find someone, send them my way. MMMMKAY?
On that note, I leave you with this: A comedic GENIUS that I just found today. I mean, this girl is HILAR! (That’s my shortened version of hilarious). I spent about 2 hours of my life today watching her channel on YouTube. Oh Grace, you got me girl, you got me goooood. Fist bump to you my friend.
