Mom's back!

I'm back from Texas! What a wonderful trip I had! Besides learning an immense amount of information about photography I got to meet tons of fabulously talented women who share lots in common! Babies and photography! I now have a crush on Pete Lacker and wish I could visit with him everyday! He was a FABULOUS instructor!

In the beginning I felt very guilty for getting to eat at nice restaurants by myself and splurge on things I enjoy, but I got used to it pretty quickly!

In addition to learning about photography from these women it also made me want to better myself in other areas of life. I copied an idea from one participant who had a To Do list on her blog of goals she would like to accomplish. 8 hrs in the car will allow you plenty of time to brainstorm!

Here is my list in progress to begin as soon as possible!

Publish a coffee table book with my cousin Allison
(I told you 8 hrs gives you plenty of time to come up with ideas!)

Convert meals to Whole Grain

Re-instate Date night with Husband

Read a new book a month

Run at least 3 times a week

Take a picture of non-people objects once a week

Learn a new photoshop tool once a month

Convert all bills to E-pay

Plan a road trip to a nearby town once a month

Take an antique shopping trip

Make one new recipe a month (preferably healthy)

Re-design website/blog

Start using Cupons and CVS/Rite-aid/Target promos cut grocery in half

Read devotional and apply it daily

So these are the ones I have at the moment...I'm sure I will add to it before New Years.

I will be uploading pictures from the weekend as soon as I finish editing my paying clients this week. I'm sure they would be angry to see me playing instead of getting them their Christmas card pics! You can see other's work by visiting our flickr group
