Just another saturday

 Today's another ordinary day. Went for a run, made "yokey" eggs for the kiddos, did some laundry and got ready for the movies. We are heading out to see Hugo and I had to note, the sharing of closets has begun. First it was my necklace, which quickly changed to one of my circle scarfs and then she needed some colorful socks. Top it off with her little smirk and its safe to say shes mine.... other than the fact there has been a lot of Rhianna and Katy perry in the car these days. She loves it and its kinda rubbing off. Billy on the other hand, loves Avett brothers and Fun. He is taking a lot of interest in artistic based things. He wants to paint now and asks about my cameras a lot. I am thinking of enrolling him in a art class at the local supply store. Its so fun to see the interests they have and wonder who they will become...I know kitkat and I will be best friends and lil Billy holds my heart. They are the best thing Ive ever done, I dont know how I got so blessed. They are perfect.... and all I need.


Happy Turkey day

 Being the only member of my family in utah and it not being my year with the kidlets, holidays can be uneventful. On my off year, I always go get a turkey dinner and hit up the movies. This year, me and court went to little America and then to the broadway to see Like Crazy. I had been DYING to see this movie but it was only in select theaters. Finally, the broadway picked it up. I loved it, most movies portray only the happy side of relationships. Well this is a real relationship with love and all the crap in between.  "Its the halves that half us in half." I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving with family. I am so grateful for my amazing children, my family and my friends

I am also SO SO very grateful for falling madly in love with bands like this....


A little of L.A

I am a slacker on so many of my fun, little blog post. Here's a tid bit more from my trip back in September. Ciara and I attended the Beloved workshop. It was beautiful and inspiring but its a heavier workshop. So, we lighten things up by goofing off. I have a million (non flattering) shots of full on, nostril flaring, eyes watering, pee your pants laughter... proof of how darn funny we are. Enjoy a peek at the rough draft of a new editing style. The shins were a great inspiration. I think I will call it - lava lamp luster... mmm maybe


Road trip

You know in the movies, when a car loses control and the slow motion begin, the passengers grab the handles on the door and make eye contact with the car that's about to hit them head on. Well I had one of those moments... Courtney had a class she was taking down in Vegas and we had some friends we could meet up with. I was kid less and shoot less this weekend so, I said I would tag along. She picked me up, we got on I -15 and two minutes into our trip, the car in front of us swerves to avoid a metal ladder that was on the freeway. Courtney tried to do the same and we started to lose control, she was silent but I calmly repeated, you're over correcting, your over correcting... and before we knew it we were doing a 180 into on coming traffic. As we spun around, for the first time in my life, I believed I was about to die. It was the strangest feeling ever, I even said it out loud twice and looked to see what car I would watch slam into us head on. I braced myself for the impact and my heart sunk when I saw a suv and a semi coming at us. We were done, I knew it... thankfully they were able to slam on their brakes and we sat there for a minute before being able to move. When I replay it in my head I still remember that feeling,  wholeheartedly thinking you are about to die is a crazy thing to feel. Oddly enough I was really calm .... too calm. Sounds dramatic, but it was. We got there and back safely with lots of fun in the middle. I love dancing but missed my babies. Happy to be back to the everyday hum drum. I didn't take any of us out and about, who wants to carry a camera in Vegas? So all I got was photos from the car and us looking like bums :)
