Miscellaneous Mon...Wednesday?

Well, Monday has clearly come and gone, but why not play catch up today?

1. I've been able to shoot a few more photography sessions lately and I couldn't be more excited.  Here's a little peek!

2. Sometime in January Mr. Fix-It and I realized that we have a surprisingly clear calendar for 2012. It's the strangest feeling. Since we met, there's always been SOMETHING significant on the docket. Weddings certain weekends, big trips, graduations, our wedding. Right now, we're wide open. You know, for the most part.

3. Mr. Fix-It LOVES St. Patrick's Day. It was a big thing at his college, and I think he remembers it (well, as much as one can remember a drinking celebration) as an especially fun time. I, on the other hand, HATE St. Patrick's Day. Well, I actually hate day-drinking. And St. Patrick's Day is the mecca of the day-drink. It makes me feel disgusting and gross, and somehow during day-drink events I always wind up covered in beer.

True story: a few years ago I was using a Porta-Potty (as if that isn't gross enough) at the Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade and someone poured a beer on me through the slats. It was a guy pranking his buddy. He figured it out pretty quickly when he heard a girly voice screaming expletives. He apologized, but OMG. IDIOTS. GAH. Oh, and it was cold. So I was cold and wet and reeking of beer all day.

I should also add: I HATE BEER. So, I'm basically the worst day-drinker you've ever met. Maybe a margarita day on Cinco-de-Mayo would be a better fit for me.
Don't be fooled, my smiles only hide my misery.

4. Super exciting news: Mr. Fix-It got a new job! We're both really optimistic about this move for him!

5. I FINALLY got approved to take my professional licensing exam. I have never been more excited to study and take a test. Let's get it done!

What's new with you?


  1. Congrats to both you and Mr. Fix-it! I've never been a big fan of St. Paddy's either (not a big drinker, don't like people pinching me when I inevitably forget stupid holiday, etc.). Hopefully this time you won't get beer poured on you!

  2. Sounds like you've got a ton of fun stuff going on! Yay for his new job and your sessions! And, um, I'm not a big day-drinker either..I always just feel kind of icky about it!

  3. Oh, I am right there with you. I hate day drinking, I hate beer, I hate cold, I hate crowds, I hate being stuck at events where my companions are far more enthralled with it than I am. St. Patrick's Day is so overrated!

  4. I hate St. Patrick's Day too! I'm not the slightest bit Irish and I'm TERRIBLE at day drinking. I went to school in Boston and Marathon Monday is HUGE especially since we don't have a football team and didn't get to tailgate for hockey. Basically the Boston Marathon conveniently coincides with a state holiday so everyone has the day off and gets drunk and cheers on the runners. I always just manage to get sleepy. And last year I had to stay relatively alert so I could go meet my boyfriend at the finish line!

  5. Congratulations on all fronts to you and Mr. Fix-it! Your photos are great, too! Can't wait to see more! Oh, and ditto on day drinking!

  6. congrats on everything! Love how your photography is growing!

  7. HATE BEER?! I am rethinking our friendship right now as we speak.

  8. Love the pics, feel your pain on day drinking and congrats to you both on the new professional endeavors!!

  9. congrats on the new job for mr. fix-it, and for your photography and career advance!
