I am jumping back on the wagon of exercising and eating right. After the forever long sickness that we had at my house and going to lunch with everyone last week I completely lost motivation to step back on the treadmill and after gaining 2.4 pounds the week before didn't help either. Well for some reason today I turned over a new leaf and am ready to start again. I only have 1 month left to complete my goal of loosing 20.

I stepped on the scale a little bit ago fulling expecting to have gained like 5 pounds, but was pleasantly surprised to find that I lost 2.4!

I have also exercised for the day!!!

Here is to keeping it up and making my goal!

It has been sick house over here. We have been fighting off a virus. This virus which has been around a good 6 or 7 weeks at my house has cause (combined) 5 ear infections, 2 cases of bronchitis, 2 throat infections and lots and lots of stuffy noses.
I was in the bathroom the other day blowing my nose when I look over to find Wilson staring at me. He gave me this look and said

"Are you getting your burgers (boogers)?"

I love this cute little guy!

Please pass on my name if anyone is looking for a photographer.

Train Tracks

Yesterday Wilson and I got to travel to Lehi to hang out with my Aunt Kellie and her grandson Max. I have been wanting to check out the Railroad museum there for an additional photo site. I had two perfect subjects to help me scout out the site. While lighting was really harsh I was still able to get some awesome pictures.

These are of Max. Isn't he so cute?!?

Here is Wilson looking to go on an adventure of his own.
Probably my favorite shot of the day. Wilson waiting for the train to come...

Photo of the day

I have so many pictures to post, but little time to do it. Probably because everyone in my house is sick. Hopefully tomorrow, but here is a preview...

I don't feel good

Wilson has learned the phrase "I don't feel good" and while he often says it when he is fine, but this weekend it really was true. Friday night he stared to have this terrible cough and it only got worse from there.

This is a picture of him yesterday after a night of not sleeping he fell asleep on the couch while trying to eat a corn dog for lunch.

This is today after our doctor visit. Two ear infections, his tonsils are infected and he has bronchitis again. He really doesn't feel good.

Play time

Yesterday I decided that Wilson and I needed to get out of the house so we went to the park. We had tons of fun!

In other news I lost 2.4 lbs since Wednesday!!! Great start to my weekend!

Maggie and Mark

Here they are!

I can't even describe how much fun I had taking/editing these photos.
They are a fun couple that wanted equally fun pictures.

I have to toot my own horn, pat my self on the back, give myself a high five. I did a darn good job! I love when I impress even myself!

If you know of anyone that is looking for a photographer please send them my way!

Back on track

Even with a terrible run in with a chocolate cake
I still lost 2 lbs!!!

Okay so it wasn't terrible it was delicious and that was the problem.

Also, Wilson slept all night in his new bed!

Stay tuned I am hoping to post engagement pictures later today.
(not mine, ones I took!)

Moving up in the world

Raise your hand if you are a terrible blogger lately (visualize me with my hand raised). Life has gotten a little crazy lately (that is putting it mildly). I have gotten a new calling (Young Women President) It is busy season for Ryan at work which = him working at least 50 hours a week and all sicknesses to go around. Blogging has been last on my list that and I gain another 1.5 pounds and really didn't want to post it.

But today is a new day with fun stuff to post so here I am!

After a good week of Wilson regularly getting out of his crib we decided last night that today was the day for a new bed!

After eating breakfast this morning I asked Wilson if he wanted a new bed today and he seemed pretty excited about it.

We went downstairs and got all the stuff for his new bed and started to put it together. At this point Wilson was super excited (now knowing what I was talking about). Note to anyone putting together a toddler bed anytime soon. Don't do it alone with a two year old walking around.

After putting it together a few different times I finally got it!

Time to put it in his room. If you notice the crib is still there. This is to use as punishment if he doesn't stay in his bed.

As you can see he was so so excited for his new bed. He got all of his stuff and laid down. Too bad it was only 10 am or nap time might have gone a little easier.

When nap time rolled around I put him in bed and explained that if he talked or got out of bed he would have to sleep in his crib. He seemed okay with that and I closed the door. I got my computer and few projects that I needed to work on and sat by his door.

It only took three warnings and this is what I found!!!

I hope it just gets easier and easier!

In other news. I have been lucky enough to have several people ask me to take their pictures! I did a trade with a girl in my ward. I took her family pictures and she made me this super cute camera strap. Isn't it to die for? She even made a pocket for my lens cap. LOVE IT!!!

I did another job for a friend and she paid me! I really needed a new camera bag to fit all my stuff and here it is! Love this as well!

I just finished with some engagements for a friend and will be doing bridals and wedding day pictures. Can't tell you how excited I am and can't wait to post what I have been working on!
