Randomness if Fun


It’s me checking in with another random post, hodgepodge post if you will.



It was a sad day indeed. My all time favorite coffee cup has died. I bought her at Goodwill and I love her dearly. I’m determined to finder her replacement. For now I think I’m going to use her as a makeup brush holder. I just can’t bear to throw her away. We’ve had some good times together!


IMG_8445-edit I don’t know why this picture cracks me up, but it does! We’ve been hanging out in the backyard a lot lately and always take Ninja out with us so he can get some exercise.

Kent was working on his raised beds and Ninja was all up in his business checking everything out. Kent was making all kind of ruckus and throwing things around but it didn’t faze Ninja one bit. He just wanted to be right there in the middle of it all.

I bought these goodies at Ross. I know right, who knew that Ross carries craft supplies. The Martha Stewart die cuts were $2.99 each and the scrap book paper pack was $4.00! The paper pack was all torn up so I asked if they would take anything off and they did! I LOVE all the fun bright colors and y’all know I’m a sucker for polka dots.

IKEA has orchids for $12.99. That’s a great price for a multi stem orchid.

I stopped in IKEA the other day to pick up a prop for a shoot and passed by a table full of these beauties. Surrounding the orchid table was a sea Asians which lead me to think “Hum my Asian LOVES orchids too. I should pick one up for him!”  Kent is obsessed with orchids and rightfully so, they’re beautiful. I told everyone to watch out, big white girl is coming in! Just kidding I didn’t say that but I did think it! ;o)

I picked the one that had the most buds and said peace out! You should have seen Kent when I surprised him with it. It made his day. We have several orchids but he said this one is his favorite.

Want to know something else? Kent names his orchids after famous people. We have a white orchid named Betty White. A pink one named Pink (original right). A funky one named Ga Ga. A red one named Lucille Ball. Not sure what he’s going to name this one. I don’t think he’ll care that I told you that. He visits the blog but doesn’t really read it. You know my rule…….If you don’t read the blog you’re fare game!  




I had my 1st pedicure since the whole pumpkin toe debacle. It’s been a long 7 months! It still looks a little funky but at least I’ll have a toenail for the summer! If you have no idea what I’m talking about you can catch up HERE but be warned it’s gross!


In Other News……..

If you follow me on facebook your already know most of this so you have my permission to skip this part. ;o):

-We’ve been looking of a new car; good times, good times. A car salesman asked us if we were” jerking his chain” the other day to which Kent and I stopped in our tracks looked at each other and busted out laughing. Yeah that one made it into my Line A Day journal for sure. It was classic!   

-I’m having a girls only game night/P.J. party at my house this weekend!

-This is my last weekend of shoots before we tie the knot! I’m shooting a maternity and an engagement session (not at the same time, different people ;o) )!

-Oh and I’ve added a few new lenses to my arsenal: 100mm 2.8 Macro and 17-40mm L series. This is my 1st L series lens (or as I call it red line lens). I feel so fancy!

  6. Oh my goodness, I can never remember what all I want to say when there is a post with multiple things listed!! But...I must say this. I first started reading your blog about the time of the toe incident. I was horrified for you!!! I remember taking the computer out to show my husband. We both winced in pain for you!!! So it is countdown time!!! Woo-Hoo!!!
