Sneak Peak
Kirsten Cannon's Bridals!!

Normally I don't like to post Wedding/Engagement/Bridal photos until after the couple has received their purchased prints, but today I couldn't wait! I know I say this A LOT but today was one of my most favorite shoots ever! We went to the park about 5:00 and the sunlight couldn't have been more perfect! With the wind and clouds we've had the past few days, I admit, I was nervous! Lucky for me, it turned out beautifully! (Even better than I thought)
PS. My new lens (EF 50mm f / 1.2 USM) arrived in the mail yesterday, and I must say, it is my new favorite thing!


The M's

Lucky me! I spent all day today holding this baby:

Cute little Madison Rylee is only 3 days old!

Then my little "Margarita" Mallory joined us! We were a chair full of M's!


Quick Post

I have been horrible about blogging lately, but I promise I've been busy. Between School, Working 30 hours a week (I know it's not a lot but usually I work 12 and make plenty of $...) and designing my Photography website, blogging is the last thing on my mind. Anyway, here's a few things that have happened so far this week that I'd like to share:

Tonight I went with my BF to On The Border with his parents, grandma and his neice. They are watching her while his SIL goes to the hospital to have baby #2 tomorrow! Grandma ordered a margarita and when it got the table Mallory would not stop pointing and screaming at it. Clearly she wanted some "Grandma-juice". Figuring she wouldnt' like it Grandma took the lime in the margarita and dipped in the icy drink, and gave it to the baby... We all figured "gross" she won't like it, but at least she'll stop whining.... WRONG! She loved it! She wouldn't stop crying for more! So we ordered her a virgin Strawberry Margarita, and I kid you not, this child chugged it!!! We had to order her a 2nd one.... did I mention she's 2 years old??? It was hillarious! She definately takes after grandma. haha

I heard on the radio that there was a poll for who has sexier lips, Scarlett Johanson or Angelina Jolie. Apparently the reason their lips are so attractive (besides being big) is that they have a perfect ratio of 2/3 height to width! So I measured mine.... My lips are only 1.3" in height and 2" wide....making them a .65 not the desired .75 Oh well. So I took a lip pencil and drew my lips to the "desired" width, and honestly, I looked like a freak. HAHAHAHAHA I'm not worried about it, an ex boyfriend said after our first kiss, "I love your big lips". I guess I should be insulted, but there are tons of women who would kill for a .65 ratio, so I'm happy!

I had a day off today (which in the last 2 months has been RARE), so what better way to spend it than with my little brother? Did I mention that quality time with my little brother consists of sitting on the couch with him while he forces me to watch Jerry Springer??? The "guests" on the show were 2 gay men, one of whom was cheating on his partner with a Trans-Sexual. When asked why he did it, the man replied "Because I want to start a family!!!" Are you kidding me?!?!?! Just because it looks like a woman...? I guess I really needs to read up on reproduction habbits of Trans-sexuals, apparently there's a lot I don't know

That's all I have energy for tonight. Sweet Dreams!



I got hooked on Showtime's series The Tudors about a year ago when my grandma bought me the Season 1 DVD's. I don't get Showtime, so I missed all of Season 2, and Season 3 is starting in 3 weeks!!! So last night before work, I went out and bought Season 2 on DVD (and I got it for only $5!) I was so excited to start, that I popped in the first episode at 3:30 am when I got home.... YES it was worth staying up until 4:30!!!

In case you've never seen this show, let me describe it in a few words: DRAMA, Scandal, Hot!!! Plus you get a slightly inaccurate, but mostly correct history lesson!

Bonus: Hot guys everywhere being bad. Enter: Charles Brandon played by Henery Cavil (this is who I pictured as Edward Cullen while reading the Twilight books).

Need I say more? I started watching because Henry  is plays King Henry VIII's best friend (he is so stinking beautiful), but within 30 minutes I was a fan of the series.

I'm excited to watch these DVD's now that Henry's "divorce" is through and he can finally be with Ann Boleyn. Well... At least until season 3 starts where he shacks up with wives 3 & 4!!! Seriously, check these out... (opening credits)


Finally the weekend.

It's Saturday night (well Sunday morning), and you know what that means! Oh, you don't? Well it means my weekend is finally here! What a week it has been! There are a few things I will post about tonight.

1. In the last 48 hours, I have been at work for 27 hours. My whole self is tired, but my wallet is nice and fat. I'm still so thankful that we've been able to stay SOOO busy.

2. I have been running so low on just about every "beauty" product I have. Really, I'm surprised people don't think I'm homeless, it's that bad! So Wednesday I went to Ulta, and I cleaned house!!! They were having a buy-one-get-one-free sale on just about everything, so of course I did! I got everything I was out of, plus a bunch of extra stuff for when I run out. BIG SEXY products are all I use and here's what I found:

  • Normal root pump plus costs about $18, however a 2 pack was $22!!!! So I bought 2-2 packs. However all big sexy hair products were B1G1. So I got 4 jumbo Root Pump Plus' for $22! I am a bargin shopper! (I also got 2 hair sprays, and 2 of the new dry shampoos) By the way, the dry shampoo- are you kidding? This stuff is amazing! I used to have to shampoo my hair everyday cause it's oily, but because I bleach it gets SUPER dry. Now I'm only shampooing every 3 days!

  • OPI nail polishes were on sale from $8.00 each to $.099-$4.99 depending on the color. I now own every single "pink or pinkish shade and most red shades!" When I home, I realized I already own California Raspberry, and now bought an extra one, but oh well it's beautiful!!!!

  • Bare minerals (is all I wear I have everything, but lost 2 of my favorite eyeshadows, Queen Phyllis and Queen Tiffany. So I bought those, only to find that my rewards perks were enough to cover both of them!!!

I got a few other things, and again had major savings. It was a great experience haha.

3. Tonight at work I got a text message from my mom that said, "I'm really worried about you, we need to talk when you get home." CRAP, what did I do? not do? I was pretty much in a bad mood trying to figure it out. I set her a text back asking if I was in trouble. She replied:
"Are you kidding me? You're 25 years old. No you're not in trouble, but I'm worried about you just come see me after work."

Are you kidding me? Yes I'm 25, but she's still my mom and I thought I could still get in trouble... Am I wrong? Is there an age limit? I'm pretty sure my mom who is 50 still gets in trouble from my 75 year old grandma...

Anyway, I'm not in trouble, she's been noticing how much sugar I consume on a daily basis (between the Pepsi, Twix, Caramellos, and desserts-I've been dating about twice a week and ALWAYS get desert), and she is just worried about me turning diabetic.... Cute moms!

4. I got mail today!!! I love mail that's not bills! I got 2 Bridal Shower invites (Marie, and Kirsten!) Both in the same week! But of course I will take off work to attend both. Yea! I love "getting married"

5. I also remembered that I haven't put up any pictures from when I was in Washington DC for the inauguration... So I'll do that this weekend. For now, I'm eating dinner (yes at 1:18am- this is my normal schedule), watching a movie and going to bed.



Pretending to Text

So tonight at work I went into our wine cellar with our Sommelier Christina and pretended to text on my phone. I was really taking pictures with my camera phone. Of what you ask?
No, no, not of Christina's jugs (...of wine... pervs!) But of this guy...

This guy was wearing a VERY low cut t-shirt, and showing more man-cleavage than even most women dare show. He was semi-muscular, and had a hair-do that must have taken him an hour to perfect between the blow dryer, gel usage, hairspray and flat iron. All of our staff decided he would be a perfect contestant on the next season of VH1's Tool Academy!
Ha ha.
PS Sorry the photo quality is bad, but it was shot with an iPhone, through glass doors, from a ways away (like I said, we were trying to be discrete).


It's 4:00 in the morning

Somehow, while on the Internet tonight I ran across this girl's YouTube videos. I'm obsessed!!! And I'm pretty sure I've watched every tutorial she has!

I love playing with my hair and make-up, and nights when I'm not dating or working, you can find me in my room "painting my canvas"! You should check it out (by clicking the picture above)


This is Colby & Lori. Colby has been working out like crazy and lost about 20 lbs. because Lori told him he has "Britney Spears Chin". Does anyone else think that's just hilarious?!?!
