Weekend Rewind

Happy Monday Y'all! 

I hope you all had a great weekend! I feel like I got a lot accomplished. We are working on our Thanksgiving plans and menu, I am making a plan of attack for Black Friday and well, the Pats won so it was a great weekend! 

So I am very very excited about this! As a blogger, you wear many hats-writer, editor, photographer, etc. I have always had an interest in photography but I had never really taken it seriously until this past year. I have had a few families that I babysit for ask me to do some family portraits here and there and I'd send them over after I had them imported and did some editing. A few months ago, one of the families wrote me a pretty decent check for something that I just considered a hobby. I told the mother that I couldn't accept that and she stopped me and said that she thought I was so great with her kids and that other well seasoned photographers couldn't get them to sit and pose how I did. She told me I should start a photography business. I went home and kind of laughed it off. However, recently, a few other families that I don't know have contacted me and asked me to shoot for them. I asked how they heard about me and they referenced the other mother. It felt good to know that she really did mean what she said. So two months ago, I started getting more serious about it. I have since purchased more equipment and upgrading some lenses. I have also started up some social media for my new endeavor. 

Although there is nothing really there yet, I would appreciate comments, likes and follows as I continue setting things up. I spent most of Friday branding. I am really excited for this new adventure!

Saturday's pretty much always start the same for me, I woke up super early and met my dad for our usual breakfast routine. I then ran over to Old Navy to check out any sales and then returned home to do some blog things. When J got home, he asked if we could go to the mall so we went out again, grabbed some milkshakes then did some shopping.
When we got back, I decided to trial shoot some Christmas pictures for our cards this year. The dogs were not having it but I got a few cute ones of just he and I.

I woke up not feeling too hot but I still got up and went into the shop with J. Sometimes when I am there I  feel like such a child because I just can't stop touching things. J got a new truck to drive so obviously I had to test it out while we were there. Let me just tell you, you all are lucky I don't do his job for a living..the roads would be a much more dangerous place with me behind the wheel of this! 
When we got home, we watched some Criminal Minds, J did homework and I did some cleaning until 4pm when the Pats came on. We watched the game then headed to Carrabbas for my mommas birthday. 

What were you up to behind the screen this weekend?

in light of the tragedy that occurred over the weekend in Paris, remember to always take that extra moment to tell the people close to your heart that you love them. don't waste precious time fighting and holding a grudge against someone, it isn't worth it. remember to always keep an eye out for anything suspicious and be aware of your surroundings. it is sickening that this is the world we are living in. that innocent people are getting killed for doing nothing but living their lives. regardless of your political or religious beliefs, i do strongly feel that this is becoming a time where we all need to stand together.

  5. Honey that is so awesome that you get to use your hobby as a business. It's never "work" when you really enjoy it. I wish you well with that! You and your fiancé are adorable :) I wanted to ask you if you are bi-racial? My mom is Italian and my dad is African American and Native American and I see some similarities between us :) (most people think I'm Latina lol)
