My Life



Watching: Scandal tonight and you know it! Guuuuuurl! As Luvvie would say: Who did President Ghost in???? Can you believe this show? How is it that Shonda Rhimes and them keep us on the edge of our seats EVERY SINGLE week????? I love this show. That is all.

Listening To: Christmas music. All day 24 hours a day. Mariah Carey ( All I want for Christmas is You) Donnie Hathaway (This Christmas); Back Door Santa by Clarence Carter. Never heard of it? Listen here…..

And another favorite I am not ashamed to say I wait for every year…

( side note, I didn’t even know that there was a video for this song! Love that 80s hair!)

Planning: Our move to this new house. We close in 12 days. And I ain’t packed shiiiiit.

Thinking About: Photography. I finally finally had a portfolio review. And let me just tell you…she confirmed what I was thinking and pointed out a few things that  I can improve on.  It was great to hear someone else’s perspective on my photos besides friends and family.  And to hear what I’m technically doing right and wrong helps soooo much.  The review and acquiring a new lens( or two) has helped give me some inspiration to carry me through the next few months. Plus, I’m starting to portfolio build because maybe, just maybe, I might start letting folks pay me to take their photos….

Looking Forward To: Taking Pookah out of his current daycare. His last day will be the 20th of December. 14 days from now.  I.Can’t.Wait. Why am I paying almost $800 a month for you to let him watch a movie on your cell phone? Oh, and not one but two? And if my child gets another head wound up in there, I will have to hurt someone. *Cue DMX singing*

Reading: The twilight series again( I’m on Breaking Dawn* right now) and
Elevate the Everyday: A Photographic Guide to Picturing Motherhood* By Tracey Clark.

Making Me Happy: My Daddy, though stubborn and non compliant is doing reasonably well.  Even though I really would have liked to win the lottery, I feel blessed that I at least I have a job that I sometimes enjoy and that at least makes me laugh.  CDub may be the most stubborn man alive, but he’s mine. And Pookah may be in the mist of three-year old stubbornness but he’s my precious. And I wouldn’t trade him for the world. I seem to be running a special on stubborn men in my life huh?

    Haven’t gotten into Scandal (I’m all about Walking Dead!), but I definitely have the Christmas music on 24/7 too! It’s so fun to hear Nia picking up the songs and singing them on her own.

      I’d love to take photos of you and your family!! Yay!!!
      Karen Russell did my portfolio review. I took her photography class this year and I learned so much that I thought I already knew. It helped so much to have someone look at my photos and tell me what I was doing wrong and what I was doing right!
      Check out www. for her classes or her blog at
      She’s just so sweet!
