Hollie from My Pouty Princess asked us to model some adorable sets for her. We had a lot of fun and the sets are just so cute and well made! I also got to try out my cousin's Canon 28-135mm IS AF lens and I think I am in love! That is an awesome lens and the image stabilization is great for my shaky hands! Here are some fav of mine from the shoot:
Thanks to the overwhelming response, I had the privilege of writing many Thank You notes! The first batch of note are on their way to many places! The furtherest note is going to Ms Beth in Holland! (I hope I put enough stamps!) The most exotic, is to Ms Rachel, in Hawaii. Most note are going to South, but California has the most note right now coming to their states! It is so fun addressing them by hand and seeing these fun town names that people are from!
I am really close now, and can't wait to go back home to fill out my form! I am visiting family right now in CA and won't be back until the end of August. So much yummy food to eat but way too much carb! eek! We still have to go to the beach and go see the Golden Gate Bridge!
More updates to come!

I am currently reading Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix and getting to the part where Harry is about to return to Hogwarts after the Christmas break. I really dislike Umbridge, that woman is FOUL! If you have not picked up the series, you should! it's so good!!

We are going back to the BAY AREA tomorrow!!! I am super stoked! We have been in Utah since December and I've not seen my mom or any other family member for 7 months! Yes, I know that is not that long to some people, but it is to me!! I can't wait to eat yummy sushi, assortment of Asian food, and In n Out!! We have a lay over at reno that's gonna suck, wish they would have baby sitting at the airport so I can play slots to pass the time. (shhhhh yes I know that makes me a bad mommy, but I hate waiting!) I guess it's back to the old stand by for passing the time, readying Harry Potter. I'm on The Order Of The Phoenix, and that Umbridge woman is FAUL!
Anyways, can't blog without posting a picture... Sami broke my 50mm 1.8 lens, that I'm still depressed about, so this was not taken by me but by my father in law. We were visiting Aunt Linda's family in Salt Lake and they live in this community call Day Break. Seriously nice place: lake, bridge, playground, paths for walks. But what is up with this toy??? It's like this big slider.... but to me, that is just a lawsuit waiting to happen!
