Things I Love Thursday!

WOOOHOOO! back on a regular blog schedule, i do hope! i'm making mike promise to help keep me motivated so i update at least once a day like i promised i would. he's also supposed to be helping me reign in my spending but we definitely went to the mall today (however, i only bought 1 adorable pair of bright red suede-esque heels! only $10! win!). now we're sitting at panera where we enjoyed an awesome bowl of soup and we're thinking about heading to my parents' house. anyway, here are the things that i'm loving this week!

1. my sweet fat baby G! she's getting oh so big! she's probably almost 60 pounds! she'll celebrate her 7 month-birthday (does that exist?!) on christmas eve! so excited to have her first christmas this year! man oh man i can't wait to wrap her presents! also, peep my new curtains behind us! bought them at World Market with Mike earlier this week and they're awesome! they're a bit too long so I may need to go trade them in but i do love them so!

2. Having my picture from Seventeen on someone's mirror/room as "inspiration"! so so incredibly flattering! a lovely girl sent this to me on MySpace this week. sorry if its a bit narcissistic but its flattering nonetheless! thanks lady!
3. this is what i aspire to. i won't be the cat lady... no... i'll be the SHARK LADY!

  4. i loveeeee her, anna! especially in stranger than fiction! shes seriously like the epitome of awesome (even if shes a cynic) in that movie! :D

  5. I love your dog, she's precious<3 And I'd be pretty stoked to be on someone's wall myself, narcissism be damned. Sharks in space. :D

  6. ATTN Brides, Mr. Austin’s website only displays pictures that he is proud of. He has yet to post the pictures from our wedding, 6 months ago, on his blog. Possibly because the bulk of them were terrible and he is anything BUT proud of his work on that day…we have the bad pictures to prove it.

    While he may get a good session off on occasion and for the “right” kind of customers; ie clients with money. Clayton MELTON of Clayton Austin Photography misrepresented his services to us from the beginning, made verbal promises he didn’t want to keep, failed to honor his contract and turned out to be, in our opinion, a self-aggrandizing, arrogant amateur with poor interpersonal skills when dealing with clients. Of particular interest to potential clients is the fact that Clayton Austin does not remove blemishes from finished, hand-edited photos even though he may promise up front that he does.(as he did for us). If he makes this promise, be a good consumer and get it in writing!
