It's my turn :)

I have been tagged by the one and only Beth (who makes me gain weight by reading her blog!!!) By the way her Blog is Our Sweet Life

Players list 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, players then tags 8 people by posting their names and makes sure they know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at the tagee’s blog.
Here goes.......................

1. I currently have an obsession with my new Nikon D40, see post below :) And this blog thing of course

2. When I was 21 months old I was paralyzed, my parents were told I would most likely never walk again. Yay me :) At 21 months old you don't know your own limitations I guess

3. I have awful OCD habits, some of them make me late for appointments which is not good! All related to cleaning, Monica from Friends best describes me.

4. My best friend is my sister, my family keeps me motivated, and my boys are my life.

5. My dream vacation would be going to Santorini with my wonderful hubby.....but I love vacationing all together!

6. I have a massive fear of heights, rollercoasters are like "what the $hit! No way!!!"

7. If you know me at all you know I LOVE the Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field is the best place in Wisconsin

8. When I was in the 8th grade I took first place in a national Forensics competion

Jessica Claire ROCKS!!!

As many of you know Mike and I were very fortunate to have the talented and lovely Jessica Claire photograph our wedding in Mexico. I am beyond in love with her work, her taste, her style, etc. and was able to participate in a live chat she was holding today on Blu Domain's Happy make a long story short she was there to answer any questions that were being asked. I received a few tips and while chatting I found out she will be speaking at a PPA (Professional Photographers Association) in WI this October. I asked her to email me information so I could look into attending. Not only did she tell me she would email me but mentioned Mike and I being models for her shooting class then staying to attend her class later! ARE YOU KIDDING ME :) I told her absolutely, my diet starts tomorrow!!!! She made my night, to have Jess shoot Mike and I again would be a dream come true!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This lady is beyond fabulous and I hope it works out for us. I am extremely excited that I keep hitting the refresh button on the computer hoping her email will pop up soon. I am trying to remember she is on California time. Her work and her business sense is admirable and then some, having said this I am now just hoping it is not the only weekend I am booked for a wedding in October (not that I don't love my bride)........a behind the chair wedding doing hair, not behind the lens wedding like I hope to be doing someday :)
You can check out Jessica Claire's work by clicking on her name at the bottom of my blog, if that does not work (forgive me I am new at this) her website is
After that make sure you add her to your favorites because I assure you you will become addicted!! I have!

I did it, I made a Blog

After some thought and a new Nikon D40 camera from the hubby I decided to start a BLOG! Mike and I were just chatting when he came up with a name for my blog. I am certain this will lead me to a new addiction, second to photography of course! It is late and I am sure Cainen will be up at some point, poor little guy is teething so bad. This is only killing us because he was sleeping through the night at 2 months old!! Having said that I am going to sign off, however I will be be back tomorrow with some photos of how big the boys are getting! In the meantime enjoy this picture. Like I said Cainen is teething :)
