just a bunch of randomness.

My dear wreckless girl Kristy (whom I LOVE to death!!)  tagged me on her blog, so you get to hear some randomness about me.

4 things I did today

1. Woke up from a not so good night of sleep at 7:00, went downstairs and made breakfast for my family, kissed the hubby off to work, began returning emails.  (my usual morning)

2. Did school with the kiddos.

3. Went to Ikea to scope out some new cabinet handles for my newly painted kitchen cabinets.  Now I’m more confused than ever….but I picked up a super rad tropical plant for the living room.

4. Make some tea, put kids down for “quiet time” and I am getting ready to read some bible.  Now that I wrote it, I have to or I am a liar.

4 things on my to do list

1. Figure out how to balance the ever growing problem of life and all that it entails….home schooling, family, home business, organization, house cleaning, laundry, bills, etc.  (I think this will remain on my “to do” until I am an empty-nester.)

2. Wrap my nephew’s birthday present for his party tonight.

3.Find out some good junior biographies to read to the kids for history.  I am horrible at taking the time to read to the kiddos.  I am way too ADD.  I need to get a few books soon to get me on the right path.

4. Figure out how to get the basement painted for our studio, the outside windows stripped/painted/caulked before winter, and clean out the garage that we were supposed to do last spring.  (Maybe I need to change this to: “Hire someone to help with odd jobs around the house so Mama don’t go insane.”)

4 of my guiltiest pleasures

1. Chocolate in any form.  But the darker, the better.  I also love ghetto desserts…like those fake brownies you get a a gas station.  Little Debbie’s are so nasty, but OHHHH so stinkin good.  (Brett is gagging right now.)

2. Music.  I could get lost for hours and have trouble coming back.  I love exploring new people/new tunes all over the web.  I am super fortunate enough to have a sister, brother, and two brother-in-laws who are psycho obsessed with finding new music.  Since I don’t have as much time (imagine that), they do a lot of the work for me…and I am never without new tunes. Never.

3.  HGTV.  I don’t have cable but if I am around it, I am nearly glued to this station.  I want to have my own show.  Kind of like a, “What Not to Wear,” but about home decor. :)

4. Poetry. Reading and writing it, although I seldom have/make time to do so anymore.

4 random facts about me

1. About my looks: I have a dent on the side of my nose…I call it “character”.  My dad is a dentist.  I could have free veneers, or a plastered Hollywood smile, but I’m cool with the mouth God gave me. (Don’t think I haven’t been tempted!)  I am missing a knuckle on my left hand.  No joke.

2. I was always a bit obsessed with Winona Ryder.  When I was 13 I wanted to be just like her in “Beetle Juice.”  I loved how she always wore black funky outfits. I still laugh every time I put my ninja suit on to shoot a wedding. I never thought I would live out that dream.  I like it. :)

3. If I wasn’t a photographer I would have loved to gotten into home interior design.  My brain hurts (in a good way) when I pour over my design magazines.

4. Brett and I were in a wreck 10 years ago this month. We were dating then.  We were crazy lucky to walk away from it.  I think God may have had some plans for these little lives of ours.  I’m quite happy to be here.:)
