H54F

Yesterday was actually my Friday, I had to take today off for an appointment. The weeks seem to be flying by lately. Hopefully after I'm done at the doctor's in the morning I can get out and snap the photos I need to submit for my class this weekend. Here is a quick recap of our week. 

1. Sunday I submitted my photography assignment for last week and I was so excited to see that my professor featured my pairing on the main page out of everything that my classmates and I submitted. I really like how it turned out. The assignment was to shoot a series of pairs (two photos that are tied together somehow). We also have to shoot our photos in full manual mode so I ended up pretty happy with all of the photos I submitted. 

 2. This week Amelia and I spent a lot of time cleaning her room and reorganizing it. I love the size of her room... it's huge, but the girl has a crazy amount of stuff and it wasn't very functional for her. When she wanted to play ponies she would have to dig in all of her bins to find them all. We solved this problem completely. I have some decor I want to hang on the walls and then I will give you all a tour of the coolest room ever! Oh and apparently a tutu is part of our cleaning uniform.

 3. I've been so busy lately that it's a huge worry for me that I'm somehow depriving Amelia of her Mommy time. I'm trying my best to balance the daycare, blog, Etsy shops, photography class and a new project I've been working on. Finding fun things for her to do while I have to work on stuff and then making our one on one time really special has been a priority for me!

4. I seriously have the best husband ever! He truly is amazing. He makes dinner way more than I do which allows me to have time to focus on other things. He made ricotta, spinach, tomato and basil stuffed chicken breasts this week. Delicious!

5. Amelia and I made this Valentine art to hang in our living room. Click HERE for the full post. 

Things I'm looking forward to this weekend...
*Shooting my photos for class. I'm taking Amelia with me so I'm going to arm her with a point and shoot so she can join in on the photo snappin' fun. This week's assignment is Cityscapes and Landscapes. Hopefully the weather cooperates. This rain sucks for photos. 
*Amelia is taking an ice hockey lesson on Saturday. I can't wait to see how she does. My sister bought her the lesson to see if she likes it. Just picture it... a tiny little almost 5yo on ice skates. Holy Cuteness!
*A birthday celebration outing. We are going out to celebrate my cousin Deana's husband Derek. I can't wait to hang out with them. 
*Working on the DIY decor for Amelia's birthday party. I have exciting news regarding her party and I can't wait to share more on that with you all. 

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

  3. Kudos to you for learning how to shoot in manual mode! It's on my bucket list this year. Oh, and cleaning in tutus...adorable! I wonder if I can get away with that. Xo

    1. Manual mode is a scary thing at first, but once you start practicing it becomes a lot easier quickly. I can definitely see a difference in my photos. What type of camera do you have?

  4. I don't think I'd want to wear my tutu while cleaning - that thing is huge! But a tiara is always an option!

    One of my friends on Facebook posted a pic of his young daughter in her hockey goalie uniform - cutest thing ever!!

  5. Very cool that your photography got featured! I am most looking forward to getting this house cleaned back up after a very hectic week. A clean house equals a calm heart for me. I have to start the new week with our shiz together.
