Going to the Chapel

And I’m… going to photograph a we-eh-eh-ding.

Going to the Chapel of Love.

A morning wedding in a cozy chapel.

It’s going to have candlelight.

So I practiced.

Instead of reading blogs, I’ve been reading my manual and playing with my cameras and lenses. Laying them out. Charging batteries and hoping I don’t forget anything.

I feel like it’s a first day of school tomorrow.

I’m going to a wedding! Annnnnd…… I’m the photographer.

Wow.

Please send thoughts, prayers, and lots of love to the happy couple (and me too – heh).

Caption Contest Winner!

I am so glad Jason was the judge of the Caption Contest and not me. I was rolling on the floor from some of these. I loved them ALL! He had a real hard time choosing, but in the end, went with……

Team Edward V. Team Jacob:Who Will Bella Choose? - by Charisa

Congratulations Charisa who shares the same birthday as me, and I, too, used a vampire reference! Indeed, we are cosmic twins!

Jason picked two runner’s up (because we are nice like that):

“You put how much money on our Pet Smart card?!”

“But honey, I bought this nice collar for you”

    Submitted by Kimberly from All work and no Play makes Mommy go something, something blog.

And if you can’t tell from the blog name, she is a hoot.

And…..

Oh ****!

    Submitted by Mandy from Mandyallen.com Where life begins blog.

When I see Anna’s face, it perfectly depicts this phrase. *By the way no dogs were harmed in the making of this caption contest, just sayin’.*

I decided to post a few more favorites as well.

Sydney’s pick-

Geez…no need to bare all that calcium. All I was saying is that the collar would look a lot better down HERE a bit…

    Submitted by the very witty Jessica from Booshy blog.

We both get tickled when we read that since the little paw is pulling the collar down. Ha. Booshy was my very first blog friend commenter, for reals.

Angelia’s pick-

Dude, you need to back that mouth up. The breath alone is killer.

    From my dear funny blog friend Foxy who writes The Fox Den blog.

I’ve been a fan from day one of finding her. She is pregnant with her FIRST baby. I get to meet her in March to take maternity photographs and I….can’t…..wait! Squeeee!!

This was very fun. You are all crazy wonderful for participating and giving us so much joy and laughter – which we always LOVE. I hope you enjoyed as well. If ever I get another great caption photo, we will definitely do it again (odds are high since I am taking photos EVERY day for 365 project).

Thank-you, each and every one. Enjoy the weekend!

My Cup of Happy

Day 7 of my 365 project.

Drink and be happy! It's the weekend.

It’s actually not even my cup. I got it for Jason on his birthday last year, but it is so much sweeter drinking from his cup of happy. It’s almost a sneaky happy. But really we are sharing our happy. Isn’t that what newlyweds do? Ha.

Tomorrow, we are taking the girls to Oklahoma for the first time. Molly swears she has been there before. Hmmmm, well, I don’t think so and I sure don’t think her mom has ever taken her. But that’s okay. After tomorrow she can say she has been to Oklahoma and it will be for real. I hope she enjoys our tradition of singing the song, Oklahoma, when we cross the border.

OooooooooooooKLAHOMA, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain…..and the waving wheat, it sure smells sweet when the wind comes right behind the raaaain…..OooooooooKLAHOMA!

Hope it doesn’t scare her. It’s worth the risk. We (Sydney & I) just can’t break tradition.

As for featured entertainment (besides our singing), we have all iPhones charged and plenty of headphones. Yes!

The girls will get to see their Grandma B, her 20 or so dogs, and her little cottage. They will get to see country and small town living. I hope they get to meet their cousin-in-laws; my brother’s children from marriage. There will be many firsts. I don’t think I will have a problem capturing Day 8 of 365, but I will have a hard time picking the “one” to showcase that day.

Mom is very excited.

And?

It’s always nice to visit home. I am very lucky to be only three hours away.

Maybe I’ll wash my cup o’ happy and have some more tomorrow.

Welcome to the weekend!

Do you have any big plans? Does anyone else still have a Christmas tree up? (totally slacking here with one tree still up – oops!)
