How Many Weeks Am I At Now?


The other day, Camaron and I headed to downtown Gilbert, sans Fox, to take some "I'm a professional" / "Wow, that guy looks important" photos for Camaron's resume and work social media stuffs. I don't mean to brag, but I think I did a pretty good job. I mean, here's a direct quote regarding one of his photos that he posted online: "Who is this man, and how can I give him oodles of money?" See, nailed it.

After capturing as much of Camaron's professionalism as the camera could handle, I switched places with him and asked him to capture a few of me and my pregnant-ness. I sometimes feel guilty that I might not be giving this pregnancy as much attention as I did with Fox, so I've been trying to jump on as many photo ops as possible lately. So here I am in all of my 27 or 28 week glory! You see what I mean about not paying enough attention? I don't even know how many weeks along I am, sheesh.

sidenote: a couple weeks ago, my computer's hard drive had some problems (not too surprising as my laptop is pushed off the couch at least twice a week. Thanks Fox ...and me). So I ended up having to have it wiped when the techs fixed it. Unfortunately, I lost all of the photoshop actions I had accumulated over the years (along with a ton of other things I foolishly didn't backup). I was able to re-download a few, but as for the rest I was scrambling to find good-quality replacements. As luck would have it, mid-search, A Beautiful Mess tweeted that they just released their amazing new actions in mini sets that are only $10!!! I had been coveting their newly-released actions, but couldn't bring myself to pay $50 for photoshop actions right now. But $10? Done and done. Just thought I'd share that there are awesome and affordable actions available on their site right now:) Dang, I should get paid for this -I sound like an ad, but really I'm just excited.

Putting my creativity to work // Gold Foil Temple Prints


Inspiration came one day and I just couldn't shake it. So I made a big purchase on a whim with the reasoning, "Well, if this doesn't pan out, I can just return it." I am so glad I followed my gut and just jumped in (even though it was a bigger purchase for me.)

Designing a gold foil print of the Gilbert LDS temple paid off in more ways than I originally planned. Having creative projects to work on is one of the best medicines my mind could ask for (why does it always take me so long to realize this?). Life has been very crazy lately and having this outlet for my creativity has been such a blessing. So I just wanted to just send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has placed orders for temple prints so far. It's been fun seeing old and new friends pick up their prints. Having these orders to work on has definitely kept me busy, but it has truly been such an amazing experience.

As long as I'm getting orders, I'll continue creating these temple prints, so please let me know if I can create one for you:)

I'm gonna complain. Here it comes...

Just when I start thinking to myself, "You know, this pregnancy really isn't so bad..." that's when I end up not being able to fall asleep until sometime after 2am because I have restless arms (aka the jimmies). Seriously, it's a real thing, and it's the worst. That was last night. And then Fox decides he wants to be up and wide awake at 6am today. And today is one of the days that Camaron has the car all day. And I really need a shower. And I'm just sooooo tired and I wish there were more seasons of Phineas and Ferb on Netflix because this is the fourth time we've seen this episode, Fox. I'll keep you posted if I have more complaints later...


***UPDATE: My super-human mom came and saved the day (as usual). And Natalie offered to save the day, so she comes in at a close second. And Fox took a nap so I was able to shower (you're welcome, world). Now I love everything and just wish I could be as awesome as these people some day:)
