this week we made it "facebook official" and so the rest of the world knows. it was so fun to see everyone's reactions, and all those notifications come in. i'm glad to let the cat out of the bag, but then again i'm not sure if i'm ready to talk pregnancy stuff 24/7 with people. i have stopped reading my daily pregnancy app announcements and those pregnancy books have been shoved into a corner of my night stand. for one reason, i don't want to freak myself out more then i really need to, and two do i really need to know all of that information, because it's going to happen whether i like it or not. i'd rather just not know and let it all happen.
i have also been working my other part-time job as well. they need the extra help and i could use the extra cash to start stock-piling on diapers and such. and besides target has a lot of fun/cheap toys to coupon this week too. :) like this guy i scored for $4 and this one i'm hoping to get for $17. too early to stock up on the baby's Christmas presents?
this weekend i had to photograph my last wedding of the year, and thankfully for a small moment during the bridal party photographs, the sun came out. it was the perfect moment i needed to get the bride and groom photos i was looking for. and you'll never know who will be at the reception. there was a gentleman who's girlfriend was a co-worker of the bride. he came up to me as i was photographing guest dancing with an L-series (high end professional) tilt-shift lens for me to play around with. i was thrilled and then he came up to me again and let me borrow one of his L-series wide-angle lens to photograph with too. these are $2,000 (lens a piece) and i was in heaven playing with them. i could have photographed guest dancing all night long. and my little $400 lens has nothing on them. someday i'll get there. hopefully. besides i've only been doing it for less than a year, and this guy has done it for over 35 years commercially. mind blown.
