mr. reid deserves an award

Alright. So I don't mean to gush, but I have the absolute BEST husband in the entire world. Especially when he wakes up early to take care of you when you get sick with flu-like symptoms at the crack of dawn. He truly is wonderful. He also spent his entire morning off, helping me get comfortable and medicined up, before he went off to work (a looooong shift).

{older picture...sheesh I need to document more of my life rather than clients!}

Being sick is NOT fun...especially when you have a lot left to do before Christmas....I have literally spent all day in one of three places: 1. bed 2. the couch 3. the bathroom

Work has entirely consumed me. That alone has honestly made me sick for awhile now...I am more than longing for break. Only two days left with my 6th graders and then it's vacation time. With that being said, I have to utilize every moment preparing for Massachusetts...we are heading there later this year, so there will be absolutely no shopping time before the big day. I must say, I am slightly disappointed that I wasn't able to craft more this year (like last...)...once again, work has gotten the best of me.

Now that I am finally able to sit up (without feeling like passing out), I think I will go work on some stuff....

Until next time...

i must say...

i never have been much of a tv watcher. i mean....yes..the tv seems to always be on..especially when i am working on projects or editing my photography.... in my defense, rarely do i get a.d.d.i.c.t.e.d. to any specific show. part of my problem is my schedule...i get too busy to keep up. many times i just wait until it comes out on dvd. for instance...one of my all time favs i pretty much watched every episode on dvd....which sometimes got to be bad (i'm pretty sure everything else was put on hold....hahah)

i honestly think the only show that i have seen every episode "live" is the office...i dedicated every thursday night of my life for the past couple years...

and recently i've been painfully addicted to none other than the vampire diaries....love...love...love.....i started it when it first came out...but then got busy...thank god for seasons on dvd, like i said!

anyway...the whole point of this post wasn't to talk about my favorite shows.....i really just wanted to mention how this new show on nbs looks really good. for those of you who really know me....this is totally up my alley.

and although this specific show struck my fancy.....i must say that ABCs idea (which seems very similar to me) also looks good...

...needless to say, i think my friday's and sunday's are looking "up" (tv wise!)

what are some of your current favorite shows or what shows do you look forward to?! i am always curious.

alright....lesson planning time....with a side of cookie dough ice cream & vampire diaries....


02 October 2011

we all scream for ice cream

for those of you who know me....you know how much i LOVE ice cream...tonight i decided to whip up my favorite combination.....i like to call it my "oh joy" ice cream...because all of the ingredients bring me oh so much joy.

coffee ice cream + chocolate chips + coconut = YUM

in other news....it's october....and that means i'll be turning another year older. i cannot even utter the numbers. let's just say, i'm getting up there. haha. anyway....when this time of year roles around, it's always fun to create a wish list. 

so here are a few of my "yes pleases"!!!

need i say more? even though we've been watching corey's parent's dog for the last month or so....it's just not the same. i want this itty bitty cute one. just look at those eyes. m e l t .

i have always had a thing for leopard print....and now that there are these leopard print toms....yep...i need them. it's more than necessity.

and this jacket?.....duh.

ahh....it's already 12:16....i have to be to work bright&early. can you believe it? blahblahblah. i can't....psh! adulthood. i'll leave you with a picture from a senior shoot that i did today....

&then, i bid you all adieu

the cheesiest

can i tell you how joyous i became when i finally had a chance to catch up on one of my favorite blogs ::abeautifulmess::? um....i'll sum it up in four simple words...ALL ABOUT GRILLED CHEESE! yes. one of my favorite go to sandwiches (i'm not a fan of sandwiches..but when it comes to grilled cheese...mmm mmm good!) most of you who know me know how much i love a modest grilled cheese dressed up in a little raspberry jam.  it's something the "frasier" side loves to do...although most of my siblings have nipped that tradition...i, however, say live long oh happy grilled cheese sandwich! check out some of these:

now...time to stop drooling and start planning (plus watching a few vampire diaries episodes...shhh....)


23 September 2011

so... i am pretty much currently in love with you

vampire diaries.
lemonade&cranberry juice.
katy perry.
my sixth graders.
black&white portraits.
this hat.

& well duh....i am more than just currently in hearts with the hubs. ps! he just got a job at my school which means we totally get to ride to school together now!...it's fun...

19 September 2011


i enjoy really well done black & white photography. clear cut lines. pretty soon...once things slow down...i would like to a photoshoot with corey so that we can get some awesome black &whites for our walls....like the ones from here.

oh what a wonderful husband i have

as you can imagine, i have been more than busy right now. with school beginning, changing to an entirely different grade (which means more planning) and it being the final days of my wedding season (for defotography) i am literally overwhelmed and short on time. i was very impressed when i came home after work today (um...yes....over an hour after school got out)....to this:

why yes. my wonderful husband was slaving over the stove. both of us like to try new things, so he decided...let's do something different for dinner. he hopped onto foodnetwork.com and found this lovely dish. let me just say, after a long (but enjoyable) day of work..i was ecstatic to sit down with my favorite person and eat an absolutely gorgeous meal.

now...with that being said, it is time to go back to work. i have LOTS of editing to do...then school work (ohhh 6th grade! i love you....but i have so much to do!)

until next time...
