its FRIDAY!!!!!!!


Had to tell you a funny story that happened to my friend Michelle ( fellow Camera nut, and someone who I admire a PILE).

Here is what she wrote"
I was at the grocery store this evening (by myself!!! ahhhhhh! smile.gif ) and was walking down the isle. There was a mom there teaching her small (maybe 3 or 4 y/o) son how to 'drive' the shopping cart and watch out for other people. Just as she says "ok honey, watch out for people going by..." he spins the cart around and smacks right into mine. No problem. I smile at her, she says "OMG I'm soooo sorry!!!!" I say "no biggie- btdt with my kids happy.gif " and the she says to her son "What do you say to the nice lady?" He looks his mom straight in the eyes and says very loudly "HOLY SHIT, I *HIT* SOMEONE!!!!!"

The mom looked horrified at first, the store grew noticeably quieter, then we both broke out laughing- it was soooo hard not to! I laughed so hard I about peed my pants. Finally the mom asks him something like "where did you hear that before?" and the kid goes "Well, that's what you said to daddy when you hit that guy with our car that one time"

can you imagine...I would have died laughing!!!!

Here are a fe pics from the horse show on the weekend.. The reiner is my trainer Ron Brouwer, and no he is not riding my horse..she's on mat leave remember! LOL
and the lady riding western pleasure is my good friend Sierra...and her super duper horsey Takatti(ta-ka-tee)sheesh I think thats how you spell it

Hump DAY!!!!!

Well time to update some again...
new? Whets new....hmmn..not a heck of a lot...took a few pics of J with the lights again..He really seems to absorb that darn blue seamless paper...must be aware of that.
In this one he wee foot is still a bit blue...I will have to go back and select it and warm that baby up!. He was so funny while I was taking these...Climbing on and off, and on and off...Grunting and moaning the whole time.
I *think* im getting the hang of the lights some, I don't get nearly as many over exposed ones when I first start...I know what Im gonna ask for for Christmas already... A Sektonic light meter...

Gotta do some more work on my Logo...I love love love the watermark, but I have had a few people mention to me that the font in the title, doesn't really jive with the really cursive and decorative logo, so I guess I need to re think that!

Getting all set up with Technicare today, got the software last night, and as soon as Im done here, I have to call to get the color management and my test prints all done! YEAH!!!!!!! im nervous but excited at the same time.

Family shoots... I am hoping to do the first one ( family of 4 ) some time this week..or early next. I need to check in the forecast and peek at the weather...hoping for a nice overcast day...probably wont happen..but hey I can hope right!

oh yeah! I got BAMBOOZLED...yup...
totally BAMBOOZLED.. A friend of ours is getting married July 1st. He takes his own photos of his kids and all b/c he is a bit on the stingy side to pay anyone to do it...Guess where this is leading too... LOL...Anyways we stopped over there for supper on Monday night...And they were telling us about wedding plans and such, and DH brought up a photographer..Well his friend pipes up. " Im gonna take them myself" LOL...Ok..Buddy..How on earth are you going to take your own wedding Photos?... Getting warmer now?... So the bride grabs me and begs me to bring my camera to the wedding to play second as the photographer..b/c he wont be able to get the walking down the aisle photos and stuff like that...~BAMBOOZLED~
They are getting married outside, so that's all great b/c I don't have anything but my in camera flash. And the way I see it..They are gonna be happy with any of them, b/c they at least will be photos with the DH in them! are you thinking sometimes?

yeah, so I gotta go peek around and get some wedding pose shots in my head now too, plus an extra battery, got 3GB of CF' cards...Which should be enough if I only use RAW in the tricky light situations...Heck maybe I will grab one more 2GB card from Costco next time Im in.

Got eliminated in round #3 of THE UDS contest...thats ok by me! LOL I made the top 100, which is pretty cool, beat out another 269 other scrappers to get that title! YOu should head over to and check out the final 40..this round they narrow it down to only 7! ack..goodluck to my scrappin pals that are still in it, Susan Toon, Angela my dorky pal!, Mandy and Michelle! If you got some time..pop in there and give them some luvin! GO LADIES GO!!!!!!!! hey wouldnt it be cool if all 4 of you made it to the last round...COOLIO!!!!!!

Got my new kits from ES to do yesterday, and made my 9 kits in total to play with and get soem LO's Im hoping that I can try to do one LO a day here for the next while...get all caught up again!
