Monday Musings.

Monday, July 25, 2011
Good Monday morning everyone.  I have been MIA most of the summer but I am hoping that I when school starts back, I will get back to blogging.

1.  Caden and I went to Georgia last week.  He got sick while there and didn't get better until the day before we left.  He was still happy that he got to be with his best friend.

2.  Erin Cobb sent me all of our picture from our photo session.  Just let me say that it is going to be a very hard decision on which pictures to buy:)

3.  I got false eyelashes a couple of weeks ago and boy do I wish they made permanent ones.  They started coming off last week but I really loved them.

4.  Went shopping while I was in Georgia (something I don't do much) and let's just say that Charming Charlie's really loved my wallet!

5.  Dreaming of going back to the Turks & Caicos.  It was so beautiful and such a relaxing trip.  I hope that we can take Caden there for his graduation present.

6.  I'm ready for college football to start.  Can I get an amen?

7.  Started doing a low carb diet about 3 weeks ago.  I haven't had a lick of sugar and I have only lost 2.8 pounds:(  Not off to a great start but I am going to stick with it.  I have to lose some weight so that I can fit back into my clothes.

8.  Caden is starting his senior year soon.  Bitter sweet, I must say.

9.  Being gone a week leaves a lot of laundry.  I am going to busy today.

10.  And lastly, here is a link to a sneak peek of our photo session with Erin.

Hope you all are having a good summer.  House pictures to come soon.

Erin Cobb.

I forgot to tell y'all that we are having our pictures taken today by the fabulous Erin Cobb.  I am beyond excited.  In all of our 20 years together, we have had our pictures taken at Olan Mills one time.  Last year when we lived in Cincinnati, Erin was in Columbus taking clients and I really wanted to go and have our family pictures taken.  BUT, we had not lived there long and I didn't want to ask Gary to take off work and then drive the two hours to Columbus.

Well, we just happened to move to SC and what do you know?  She posted on her blog that she was going to the Isle of Palms in SC to stay at the beach.  I knew right then that we were going to have a photo session with her no matter what we had to do.

I asked Gary about it and he said that if I wanted to do it we would.  I know that it is pricey but I am justifying it since we have never had professional pictures taken and because this will be the only chance since Caden will be graduating next May.  (sniff sniff)

She is going to take photos outside (she is a natural light photographer) at the beach house and then some at the beach.  I got our outfits together on Saturday and we are going to be casual since that is how we really our:)  I am beyond excited and can't wait to see the outcome.  She will give a sneak peek on her blog in a couple of weeks and I will let you know when she does.

So I leave you with a sneak peak of our vacation in The Turks & Caicos since I can't blog without a picture;-)

Happy Monday.
