I'm not going to sit here and waste time explaining why i've been such a bad blogger. I just have been, but, I have missed it. If my mind would have some sort of connection to the internet, not only would I have a post for every day, I'd have various daily post. It would be awesome! That hasn't been invented yet but you watch, it will be. That would be kinda freaky though. Anyways, so much has been going on lately. Briefly, school started this past week and although we didn't have the whole first day of school set up, we have been very excited around here. I continued on homeschooling with Ms. Alyssa and just started with Caleb. It's been quite an adventure. Alyssa is no jokes when it comes to school work. Gimme my work, what do I have to do, and she's working. Caleb on the other hand, gets "tired" quickly. Tries to get away with picking and choosing what he wants to do on his work sheets. Yeah, he's special that boy of mine. He's doing very good though. I'm really impressed with his writing. Hasn't done much of the tracing (alphabets) and he's already writing almost all his letters on his own. Alyssa is also doing great. Writing and spelling words out like blanket, block, black, flow, flag, and flashlight (I was impressed with that one). I'm really enjoying my time with them. Some people have asked me "how do you have the patience to homeschool", and well, I don't really know what to say. Not that I really think of myself to be an extremely patient person but, since we (the hubby and I) decided to do this, I have to give it my all and be on my best behavior. lol. I truly am enjoying being there as they grow intellectually. I'm like "wow, my kids ARE smart"! lol. I love those two. Okay, I'm sure not everyone is interested in my homeschooling my children so...I will move on. Um, oh yeah, my darling hubby and I celebrated our 9th year of Marriage on August 12...woohoo! Nothing fancy nor smancy this year. We had a lot to do around the house so we just hung out (he was on vacation that week), and I enjoyed every minute of it. That weekend we were able to have some alone time and just, hung out some more. We did make it to the movies, saw G.I. Joe... loved it. I have absolutely no pictures to document those days but...they were great! I really need to get me a point and shoot camera. I'm missing out on a lot of everyday shot because I don't want to carry around my big ole Canon. I'm using that one mainly for my photography biz which by the way is going GREAT! I'm soo excited with all that has been going on and feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and call it a "job". It's just an awesome feeling. Well, I gotta go put my monsters to sleep but a post is not a post without pictures so, here i leave you with special "spa treatment" from my children. (They insisted, and I gave in).
And yes...this proud momma wore these sandals out to Target with her toes "AS IS" and even went to celebrate her best friends hubby's birthday that night with her crazy toes. My kids were proud, can't say that for my hubby and friends though! lol.

Alyssa: Mom, where's Caleb's Tuxedo?
Mom: Um...in his closet, why?
10 Minutes later...
Forget about it. I had to stop what I was doing and shoot away. They actually requested it, and that's not usual. It is for my daughter, but not my son. They made my day!
I've had many people mention that I've been lost in the blog world but when the HUSBAND actually brings it up, you know it's been a while. So, this one's for all who missed me! Promise to be back soon. No, for real!

Seems like just yesterday I blogged about her first day of school (click here for that). Well, tomorrow is her last day of school! My big girl. She's so excited. She has her pre-k graduation on friday. I already rented the limo and the photographer will be here by 6:00 pm. HA! Just kidding. She will ride her little buns in our 2007 honda civic and her hot momma is her photographer. BAM! Will post pics and details this weekend on all our crazies. Thanks for stopping by!
Harvard...here she comes!

Really? It's been a while since I've blogged. At first I was just really busy but then...got a little discouraged due to some stuffasis but...here I are! And with lots to say but I will make it quick cause...I'm tired. Okay, where to start? Well, I decided about 5 weeks ago to grab my weight gaining issue by the horn and do something about it. I started eating healthier, following the South Beach Diet, and well...drum roll please...I've lost 10 pounds! I have a lot more to go but it feels good to see my stomach and waist area smaller. I feel soo good! I'm not even suffering, I'm eating well and enjoying it. I do however miss one thing and one thing only...PIZZA! That's my weakness but I'm doing good. It does not control me, it just makes my mouth water everytime I think about it! Next, I'm working on lots of indoor projects lately. I finally got my indoor lighting kit a few weeks back and have been having so much fun with it! It's very different from natural light photography but I'm really liking it. I was also blessed by a special group of woman a few weekends ago who got together with me for a belated scrapbook bday party. Really, it was just an excuse to get together with my gal pals and have adult conversation without interruptions...eh hem...no kids! Not only did we have fun but they pitched in and helped me buy some backdrops and other photography misc as their gift to me. Thank you so much girls...that was unexpected and very much appreciated! I've been very busy with booking and editing sessions but I cannot and will not complain. I'm seriously happy! There's more but, we'll leave it for another post. Thanks for stopping by and checking me out...now go check out my photography blog HERE!
Seriously, stay tuned and get ready to tell your friends and family to check out my blog for details on a FREE photo shoot!
And just because a post with no photo is boring...here's yet another picture of Alyssa. And no, I don't have a favorite...Caleb just doesn't like taking pictures when I want to. He's a special case that one ;)

with the blogging situation. I think writing for the whole month of February sucked my creative writing part of my brain totally dry. Not only have I been a little lazy with it but...our internet has been giving us issues lately. Whenever I'm in the mood to blog...it doesn't feel like working. I'm actually not home right now which is why I'm posting away. I'll post again this week with something more interesting. Promise. Here I leave you with pics of my beautiful little mermaid. Isn't she cute? (Thanks Titi Mary). Shadows were drivng me crazy but she was telling me what to do. She demanded a photo shoot and I was all over it! (She posed her self, promise)!
