Whoa, baby.

It has been forever and a day since I have blogged here. It's slightly embarrassing but I guess, more than anything, it means that I have a life outside of the internet world, lol. :) While I'm not planning on coming back to my personal blog just yet, I thought I'd give a quick update:

1) A few months ago I launched my photography business. In a small city where everyone who thinks they're creative decides to start a photography business, I wasn't sure how well I'd do. Suffice it to say, talent plays a part in your ability to book clients and guys? I has it. ;) I've had steady business in the three months I've gone "pro" and have the next few months pretty booked up, too! I have a few more sessions to upload from last week but something exciting happened and that kind of took my attention away from my camera. ;) See #3. But also see my photography blog: http://www.capturingjune.com/

2) We took our annual Chicago trip (a few pictures are on my photography blog, linked above) and in two weeks, I have a girls weekend getaway with my sister-in-law and the rest of her bridal party! I get to go to another one the first weekend of September, too. :)

3) I'M PREGNANT! It came waaay out of left field since we were not trying, but we are over the moon. We've been talking about starting a family and were considering starting to try by the end of this year. Guess other plans were in motion and our baby will be here March of 2012!

4) We bought a car! Well, we actually "buy" it tonight but we found it on Friday and have been working with the car dealership like crazy people to get everything situated, lol. It's preeeetty nice -- rearview camera and in-dash navigation!

Okay, friends. This baby is making me feel like I'm 800 degrees warmer than normal and need one of my hands to fan myself. :)

I have been a BAD blogger as of late! My life outside of the internet has been very busy and that means my blog has been neglected because of it. I've got some exciting things going on so don't hate me if I'm not around much for just a little longer yet. I'll be back to catch up my 365's. I'm taking them, just haven't had the chance to upload! :)

Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} how often do you do laundry?
Once or twice a week... Just depends on how often Andy & I work out, lol. I've been working out 6 days a week so towels and work out clothes get washed a lot!

{two} what is your favorite type of cookie?
White chocolate chip macadamia nut... MMMM.

{three} what would you do with an extra $2000 per month?
I have no idea! Probably buy a lot of clothes that I don't need, LOL. Put it in savings to go towards the second story we want to put on our house eventually.

{four} what was/is your favorite subject in school?
History, without a doubt.

{five} have you ever ridden in a hot air balloon?
Noooo. Maybe if they came with parachutes in them, haha.

{six} what was your high school mascot?
We were the Cougars.

{seven} if you had the chance to go into space, would you?
Probably not.

{eight} how often do you go dancing?
Never. I don't like to dance!

{nine} would you rather drive or fly?
Drive. I hate flying!

{ten} have you ever been caught re-gifting?
Absolutely not. I am OBSESSED with giving the perfect gift!!!

DAY 108: Lines. Lists. LOVE.

I kind of go all out when I cross things off reports at work.

DAY 107: I like tea. Who knew?

I've never really been a tea person. I'm not sure why, probably because I've only had the good ol' unsweetened or sweetened ice tea you'd get at any restaurant. Andy and I were walking around Kroger and the "Papaya Mango" flavors of this caught my eye. Had to try it and guess what? I love it!

DAY 106: I <3 nature.

Today was extremely fun. I got to take pictures of Kelli's baby, Leah. It was kind of gray, but Leah is just so adorable that she makes up for the gloomy weather. I can't wait to share more!

DAY 104: Cuddle. NOW.

My rather hefty Goldendoodle thinks that he is a lap dog. It annoys Andy to no end but I not-so-secretly love it and so when he rests his head on the couch and looks at me like "I want up here!" I let him up. He climbs in my lap and I try to do whatever I was doing before, like browse the always important Facebook, haha. Oh, Frank. <3

Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} have you ever fainted?
Once, I was probably 12 or 13? I stood up from the couch too fast and got extremely lightheaded. My mom caught me before I hit the ground, haha.
{two} what is your favorite casino game?
I'm lame at the casino -- I only ever play the slot machines. My favorite slot is the Munsters one at Soaring Eagle! I just love that when you win anything, Herman Munster's voice goes "Oh, goodie!" Hahaha. Told you I'm lame.

{three} do you have a good sense of direction?
Not at all. I've lived in Bay City my entire life and I still don't know quite a few of the street names. I just say "screw it" if I can't find some place and the person I ask is like 'go north two miles, then head east...' Whatever. Ain't happening.

{four} laptop or desktop?
I don't really have a preference! We have both and I use both about the same.

{five} what is your go-to hair style when having a bad hair day?
I do the same thing to my hair every day, lol. Wash it and blow dry it. The end.

{six} do you read the newspaper on a daily basis?
No. Our city doesn't even do a daily newspaper anymore. I'll check CNN a few times a week.

{seven} do you have a favorite celebrity chef?
I looove Ina Garten.

{eight} what tv show would you like to make a guest appearance on?
The Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother. LOVE those shows so much!

{nine} do you have satellite radio in your car?
Nah. Andy used to have it, though, and he loved it.

{ten} what was the last movie that made you cry?
I honestly have no idea. I haven't watched a movie in a looong time (think: Hangover when it first came to DVD... Serious.) and I usually watch comedies when I do.

DAY 103: Tiny little daffodils

With the crazy weather the past few weeks, the daffodils in our front yard (that we THOUGHT we had totally ripped out last fall -- guest not!) haven't had much time to grow. They've got like, four inch stems. They're so tiny!
