So we're taking advantage of the nice cool day and drawing with chalk on the front porch.
I've been dying to try using prisms and crystals in photography, so I finally got around to ordering a couple. And because my neoprene camera wrap has been missing for about 3 weeks now, I found this one with a matching camera strap that suits me. I also purchased some extra batteries, and a new memory card, moving on up from only having one of each for the past year.
My first Quinceañera client!
Spring is on the way, I await the arrival of wildflowers. We've already had a few rainy days, and supposedly the bluebonnets will arrive early this year. It's International Women's Day, and I slept in, then my old friend Meg that I haven't seen in ages came over with her boyfriend to visit for a while. After that we took my mom out to dinner at her favorite restaurant. Rory has become quite unruly when eating out recently, but for the most party she's pretty well behaved.
I photographed a small wedding yesterday, and the bride ran about 50 minutes late. That meant no pre-wedding photos, we were literally racing the sunset, but managed to squeeze in the short ceremony and the big family photo before calling it. And now my drive is full again so I have to transfer some things before I can import those...
Before March is over I want to have finished my community service, Aurora's Easter photos & paint the carousel horse for spring sessions. I also plan to pick up as many shifts as possible to replace the money I spent on A Perfect Circle tickets! I'm incredibly excited, I haven't spent this much money on myself in a long time, and usually that means getting a tattoo (because at least that last forever) but seeing them is really on my bucket list. Especially since the rest of my favorite bands have either broken up or past on. I'll be seeing them in April, right between Taylor's birthday and mine so it's kind of perfect.
Obviously I fell off the wagon with the 30 blogging challenge, between work, community service & my foot constantly in pain because of the first two I haven't felt much like blogging or had much to write about. I went to the doctor today and she ordered and x-ray to try and determine the source of the pain, then I ended up having a 'mole' that started out as a freckle removed from my chest. It had grown to 6 mm, was raised, asymmetrical and had irregular borders. I'm sure the results will show it was nothing, but I'm glad to have removed and future risk.
On the other hand, as usual at the doctor I was weighed on a scale and it showed me 197 lbs. Which is heaver than I was 9 months pregnant. Needless to say, this month I will be concentrating on my health and fitness. I am going to drastically change my diet and daily activity, to change my quality of life and set an example for my daughter. I will document my journey here, recording my meals, exercises, and results. Can't wait to have some results and changes to show!
A year later my sister made another YouTube video, I again did the editing for her. It's a makeup haul & review, so if you're into that stuff, go check it out! It's an improvement in a lot of ways from the last video, but ignore the backdrop, we didn't have time to perfect that before filming.
