Conflict of Interest

I love Blaze. I hate my picture being taken. Blaze wants to take a picture of me for my blog. I really, really hate my picture being taken. Especially after a long day at work and my make-up is mostly gone. I really, really love Blaze. Especially that he loves taking pictures because I do.



Stupid love.

A few of my favorite things..

In spirit of the Christmas song I thought I would blog about a few of the things I love (and happen to have pictures handy for).

Pajamas. Pj's are hands down my favorite type of kids clothes, it doesn't get any cuter.






Ben Folds! Ben has been my favorite artist since I was about 15. Holy crap I just realized that is almost half my life...and that I am almost 30, yikes! Anyway, I think it is known very well by my husband that if Ben Folds is playing within at least 2 hours of us we will be there.



Fall. The colors of fall are stunning, nuff said.


Tattoos! I know they are not for everyone but I love, love, love tattoos. This is my husbands most recent right after it was finished. Its Trap=Jaw from He-Man. Awesome bday gift from me :)


My macro. Definitely not the snow. I will say though I never really knew snowflakes were this intricate. I guess I never thought about it. So in this instance only I see the beauty of snow.


Sushi! Horrible picture I know, but I was hungry and just snapped so I could eat.


Smoke...taking pictures of it that is. I find this to be oddly relaxing.


Our multi-colored lights Christmas tree. I took this picture years ago and I still love it so much!


My hubby! This is him and his likeness that was drawn in one of the latest issues of a Star Trek comic (with his name for the characters name). A nerds dream come true, said affectionately of course.



And of course my amazing kids!! I love these boys more than words can describe.


Wishing a blessed Christmas to all!

My Best Friend's Wedding

Name that movie! Oh wait that is the name of the movie..crap! Nevermind.

It's not every day that your best friend calls you and says, "So I'm going to have a surprise wedding at my Halloween party this year" I mean I probably should have suspected given she was proposed to inside one of those set up haunted houses...so they aren't exactly the most traditional couple.

They are however the most awesome couple and that is what they did. Her finace loves Halloween (see above mentioned proposal for verification) so this was just so perfect for them. Most people at the party didn't know and they were led down to a basement that was setup with an alter and had some of the following pictures I had taken set up on a table.










So Beautiful!












We took some more "Halloweenyish" (how's that for a made up word) pics too. These were so much fun!





I didn't take too many pics the night of the actual wedding but I really, really love this one. She is so serious that if he shoves cake in her face he is going to get some fist...and he just laughs. Love it.



Did I mention my best friend is amazing? She really, really is. I could probably go on forever giving examples if I had the time. She is one of the kindest people I have ever met and would do anything for the people she loves. I have never met anyone who gets me so well and I don't know what I would do without her.

And her now husband James? There is no way I could say anything bad about him. His name is James, he has black spikey-esque hair, he collects toys (mostly horror but still toys), his birthday is the first week in August, and thanks to a certain other James he now loves Star Trek. To say anything bad would be like insulting my own husband. So it goes without saying that he rocks too. They are a perfect couple.

I am so happy for you guys. I wish you long years of happiness and James and I are so lucky to have you as friends.


And how awesome is that full on Beetlejuice costume?!!?

Mamma Mia

Every year I think I am going to take super cute "professional" quality pictures of my kids in their costumes. And every year ten minutes before Tick or Treat I get some snapshots of them in the front yard.

Timing has never been a strong area for me...hence the over a week late Halloween post. But none the less my kids are super cute, got that part down!



All night Blaze was asking anyone if they "Had any pasta in there?" in his perfected Italian accent while Keaton just fussed with his moustache. It was pretty awesome.











I wish this boy would just stop being so serious all the time!




Throwing firebombs. Or peace signs, whatever it is that Marios do.




Apparently this is Blaze's new go-to pose.




If Blaze does it his shadow Keats will surely have to try it too.



To see the Pete and Repeat show in full effect (and get to hear their awesome accents) watch the video below. It's adorable if I do say so myself.

Pokerface....A Cautionary Tale

It was a normal day at work ..or so it seemed. Heather Heat(* Last names have been changed to protect identity) walked through the crisp fall air with a little skip in her step. As she swiped her badge she thought to herself, "This is going to be a jazztastic day!" And then she did a little jazz hands dance…which was weird but the security guy just smiled and shook his head.


As she walked to her desk she noticed poker tables set up all around. "Good golly me" she thought, "I totally forgot it was poker day! I have been reading up on poker on Wikipedia for days in preparation for this (Wikipedia is not affiliated and has not sponsored Heather Heat).

She knew the tournament wasn't for another 3 hours and 22 minutes so she would have plenty of time to grow out her stache. She donned her glasses and practiced her best pokerface.


During the first game she concentrated hard and whispered to herself I hope that they don't notice I touch my mustachio when I bluff.





For a moment she thought she was going to lose it all.


But she came out victorious and gave her fans a thumbsupski!


After that first game Heat was elated! She was unstoppable…and she was addicted.

On her way to lunch before the finals she found a poorly constructed visor hat in the parking lot. "That's weird", she thought to herself. None the less and with no regard for cleanliness she plunked it down on her head.



Little did she know that it's previous owners had called that hat, "The hat of doom" and had thrown it out the window after stubbing their toe. That was all it took for them.

Needless to say Heather did not win the poker tournament that day. And her moustache fell off, it refuses to grow back. You can find her now holding this sign and just waiting for her next chance to become the poker champion.





Don't let this happen to you or your loved ones!

P.S. Poker day at work ='s totally awesome. I have never played before so if you notice I don't blog for awhile it probably means I lost my computer, my car, my house, etc. in a poker game.

Fake it till you make it...

That's my philosophy with studio lights. Ok not really, but I haven't quite mastered them yet. I do a lot of reading and looking but not quite enough practicing. That's my goal for the upcoming slow period in the new year. So it "might" have been my goal for last year too...you don't know me!

With subjects as cute as my nephews though it's impossible to mess up ;)
