gluten free, soy free, and dairy free...

i finally did it. i made a decent bread that ash could eat. and it actually turned out pretty nicely. i tasted it and it didn't taste that different from regular bread. i think it really helped that it was banana bread, because i felt like the sweet in the bread helped make it taste better. best of all is that asher liked it. so did maxwell and caden, and i had to keep telling them they couldn't have anymore because it was asher's special bread.

see? it looks like real bread! 
happy lead day to you all!

Midweek Confessions

I'm linking up with e, myself, and i, again this week. Go check out her blog, yo!

- I'm eating cereal. in bed. at almost 11 pm. as I write this.

- I was so happy at work today when I found out the housekeeper was there... because that meant I didn't have to do nearly as much cleaning, and I could sit around more. I know... so sad. But in my defense I did fold 4-5 loads of laundry and put them away, I bathed the boys, cleaned out the fridge, and made gluten free, soy free, and dairy free banana bread for Asher.

- I just spent an hour and 15 minutes on a homework assignment that should have only taken 30 minutes because I decided to watch tv while I did it.

- I secretly really want the family I nanny for to have another baby... even though both parents are super busy.

- In one of my hardest classes we are usually given time in class to work on homework, but I usually tend to slack and just waste my time. I'm beginning to regret that.

- The night before my Photography class I will create a mental list of things that I can do in class with no internet. I then pack everything I need to do those things, and I work on them while in class. That class is 3 hours long and I just get so bored. Last Friday I finished editing all of the pictures that I took while in Ecuador (at least the pictures that I took for other people... mostly my family)

Caden Dancing

So, I took this video ages ago, and I tried to upload it on youtube... but I thought it didn't work. It did work though... and it's hilarious! Caden kept rewinding to watch this preview over and over again... AND he learned the dance. My only question is... WHY LADY GAGA!? :(

Midweek Confessions

i'm linking up with E, Myself, and I

You ready to hear some confessions? I know, most of you think my life is perfect and I have everything under control. I only wish...

- i've been wanting to do this for the past 5 - 6 weeks, but i only thought about it. never did it.

-i'm starting this a week early because i know if i don't, it won't actually get done. 

- i'm getting grades back now from certain tests and assignments, and so far i've gotten all a's, but i feel like i've hardly worked on school at all. 

-i'm at a point in my life where i'll tell someone i'll do something with/ for them, but then i don't actually do it... and i feel bad about that. i just get so busy. (and i don't do that all the time, just once in awhile).

- i don't think i've gone to bed before 1 am since last week

- i feel incredibly tired

- i got frustrated with my boyfriend because he was sick and was acting needy, even though i know that when i'm sick i act like a complete baby - i'm trying to be more sympathetic.

Photography 101

I haven't said much to you all about my art 138 class (aka photography 101), because there's really not much to say. 
I'll admit it. 
I dread going that class. 
Partly because it's 9 in the morning.
But mostly because it is BOOORING. 
I would never say I know everything about photography, because I don't. 
I know very little about photography. 
BUT, everything that my teacher (who is very monotone) is teaching are things I have already learned. 
AKA: how to get correct exposure. 

Anyway, here are a couple pictures I had to take for my assignment this week. 

I had to do some panning to capture some motion. Thankfully David was around to help me out.

Do you know what makes a good Saturday? Actually... a good day in general? A good day is a day where I have no plans. I don't have to be up at a certain time, and I don't have to be anywhere. I love the days where I decide what I would like to do. Sometimes those days are super productive. Other times those days are laaazzzzyyyy days. Either way I love them!

Today was a lazy day for me :)

I hope you all had a happy Saturday :)

Embrace the Camera

I'm embracing the camera with the anderson crew. Head on over and check them out!

Isn't she precious?

I'll admit... I had to bribe these boys to be in a picture...

Sleep.... obviously super precious to this guy.

It wasn't even very close to his nap time (not that I'm saying that kids should have specific nap times all the time, I'm just saying I didn't take him out of the house when he was acting tired, or when he should have been sleeping) He just started drifting off to sleep soon after we entered the store. My guess is that he was so relaxed after the baby massage I gave him... with sleepy time lotion and everything. ;)

Hope you all are loving my phone pic! Super great quality, I know.

Happy Monday to you :)

Senior Photos: Take 2

The second part of the senior pictures I took of my sister were taken at the beach... and here are a few :)

This was a fun place to do a photo shoot, but because it was the first time I didn't have too many ideas to go with it. Now I am always thinking of different things I SHOULD have done.

Thankfully my sister is gorgeous... which made the pictures wonderful :)
