Catching Up

Phew! I feel like I can finally take a moment to blog!

Brett came home Friday night. He said he learned TONS and really likes his team AND his new job! Very different from his last job!!

Saturday I took Brianna up to Niagara Falls for some senior pictures. We probably shot for 4 hours and I took hundreds of pictures! Actually, I haven't counted... but a lot none the less!! We had a blast and took some fun shots as well the standard senior pix. Here's a couple of fun ones....

The one below is my absolute FAVORITE!!! I actually ordered her a 12x18 print. SHHHH! Don't tell her - it's a surprise!!!! I sure hope she likes it as much as I do. :)

We didn't get home until around 1 or 1:30. I was totally exhausted and yet so excited about all the wonderful pictures that I took (is that bragging?) that I couldn't sleep. I just HAD to play with them. I finally dropped into bed around 5 am. And yes, I skipped church. I know, Bad girl! But I did go in the afternoon!! Does that count for anything????

Yesterday I had a photo shoot with Pastor Perdita. She and her husband are co-pastors of a very large church in the city. I was very excited to meet her. I've actually been wanting to visit their church for sometime but it hasn't worked out yet.... Anywayz, I had met her daughter in the mall (she works at Perdita's Hair salon I believe as the manager) and she is such an amazing person and woman of God and she adores her mother - so I knew her mother would also be an incredible woman of God!! Both mother and daughter are full of the joy of the Lord!!! I made a little collage of the photos I took of her and have ordered her a print as a gift. When I thought of Perdita I thought of strength in the LORD - that is why I chose that verse for her.

Today was spent processing pictures! Perdita needs her photos ASAP!! One of them might end up on a billboard. How cool is that?!! I'll let you know... shoot, I'll run down and take a picture of it.

Other than that I did a little cleaning - a very little I'm ashamed to admit. And ran my van up to the shop. It's sounding very sick indeed!! And in desperate need of a little TLC.

Now, it's time to catch up with what is going on in the blogging world....
