Dressed up like eskimos!'s about 27 degrees out right now and this is about the time that I start questioning why I live in!
Yesterday it was about 65, then winter hit! And I guess it's supposed to really snow tonight which will be beautiful:)
I have had a very productive week this week with my best thing being that I got my cast off!!! Yeah! I'm really excited to be able to see my leg again!! lol!
I still have to be on crutches for 4 more weeks but I'm ok with that!
Now that I finally have caught up on most of my work, I got to do a little shopping today with my friend Debbie! Although, we didn't really shop, most of the time we just tried on these crazy eskimo hats and took pictures! Now I get to sit back and read my new book, The Long Tail, and wear my new slipper/socks that I got...on BOTH FEET!!! yeah! :)
I love you all!! Enjoy the...INDOORS!!

A time for craziness and a time for rest.

Well, we just finished our family reunion last night by going out and celebrating my grandma's 70th birthday! It was great!
We had a fun time the past couple days hanging out with our cousins that we never see and my aunts and uncles! It was awesome! I just got back from the gym because we ate SO MUCH!!! LOL! My mom is from a family of four sisters so all they do is talk and we just sit back and laugh hysterically because usually no one even makes sense but at least they are speaking their mind!! hehe!
Here is a little **slideshow** of Thanksgiving day, we had dinner then went to the lake! It was gorgeous! My cousin Callie, Natalie, and I all were kinda bored while the guys were playing football so we did little photoshoots all around the park. Enjoy!
PS..I'll post pics from the BIG photoshoot hopefully tomorrow:)

Calm before the storm.

So today has been a great day of pretty much just chilling...we have been running around everywhere the past couple days getting ready for Thanksgiving! We are having Thanksgiving dinner at our house with my mom's whole family which will be a total of 25 people which is not that much thinking that our family alone counts for almost half of that with 9! LOL!
Since everyone is coming from out of state it is a little family reunion too which should be a blast! I'll post some pics if I'm able to take any! I'm recruited to take the family picture on Friday so we'll see how that goes with my crutches and a timer on the camera...HAHA!!
I love you all and am soooo incredibly thankful for you too!!!
Ps. A monumental moment happened..I actually posted on the Dear Natalie blog if any of you girls...(or guys) want to check that out!

The Oli

Ok so I guess I'm on a roll here! I did a little photoshoot for my sister Olivia yesterday and she is just so adorable! I'm a little biased but I think she is the cutest 3 year old girl ever! hehe!
I really need to shoot her more often cause she is so stinking photogenic!
She actually JUST got potty trained last week...I think she still liked the attention or something that she might have been lacking since JuliAnna came along...LOL!
She is into everything Hello Kitty and American girl dolls! So precious!
Here is her slideshow **click here**
I love you all!!

The Jules

Hey everyone!!
Now that I'm done with the wedding season I decided it was probably time to catch up with shooting my brothers and sisters!! hehe! I've gotten so busy that I haven't even taken the time to shoot them much:(
Last night I got out my camera and took some shots of my baby sister JuliAnna, who is getting soooo big BTW!! I can't believe it!
Being in a really big family has it's pluses like having a zillion different nicknames! Some of JuliAnna's are(I have NO clue how she got some of these...)- Jules, Shuzette, Shuzette Unuf, The Shooze, Shooze de booze!!
She get's so much lovin and her favorite thing to do is listen to the ringtones on the kids cellphones while she's sucking on it. LOL!

Pharaoh Pharaoh!!

When I was at my aunt and uncle's house the other night they got out the old home videos and it was sooooo hilarious to watch! One of the videos I just had to record with my little camera cause it was so funny!! I used to LOVE to put together dances and plays when I was little. This dance was the most popular one...I think we did a world tour of it! HEHE!! At the end is my dad doing his spinning guitar trick..LOL Enjoy!

I love my life!!!!

Well I just got back late last night from Nashville! I had such an amazing time! I SERIOUSLY have the best family and friends!! Saturday morning I headed over to Belmont University to hang out with my friend Sarah Chellappa who used to work for me! She is amazing! The whole day Saturday we went to the filming of a talk show called The Logan Show. It was alot of fun and we got to see a ton of great bands!! By far my favorite was an upcoming artist named Josh Wilson. He was amazing and was like a one man band with his guitar and pedals.
Saturday night we met up with my friend Brianna who is absulutely amazing!! We sat talking at Chili's for 3 hours but could have talked all night long!
I never went to college so Sarah was determined to give me the full college experience so we stayed up til 4:30 just hanging out!! It was great!!
Sunday I got to spend some time with my grandparents at the Opryland hotel which is INCREDIBLE!!! It so massive it has like 3 atriums and probably 15 restaurants!! Amazing!
I'm so glad to be back and get caught up with all my work!!
Love you all!!! Sarah
PS. Sorry I wasn't able to take any pictures because I accidently left my little camera on the shuttle to Nashville:( Thankfully they found it!!

Tennessee is gorgeous!!

I had so much fun at OSPS!! Here is a little recap..
DJ and I got in Monday night and headed right over to dinner at a really sweet Sushi place where the whole group actually booked out the whole restaurant!! It was craziness but so much fun!
Afterwards we went to the Nudd's studio that they just moved into! And it was so incredible! It is seriously my dream to have a place like theirs!! So awesome!

(Here is a picture of me and one of the many invalids there, Ginger! It was so crazy cause their were about 5 of us who were limping or had casts!! Crazy!)
The next day was filled with classes and good food!! And that night we went out to a great restaurant where I got to meet Amber and Nathan Holritz's kids who are the cutest ever!!! Here is Austin who is getting trained verrry young how to be a photographer:)

So much fun!!! I can't wait to see everyone again soon!!! The week was way to short but so awesome!
Now I'm in Nashville and I just got back from going to The Melting Pot with my aunt Wendy. It was so amazing and we were just sitting there after eating feeling like our stomachs got a massage it was so incredible!! hehe!! Tomorrow I'm heading out to see my friend Sarah Chellappa who used to work for me. She goes to school down here and I haven't seen her in almost forever so that will be awesome!!
Well I'm tired I'll post more tomorrow! Love you all!!

We had such an amazing time networking and...eating! lol! The time went by waaay to fast...but it's so amazing the relationships that you can develop in such a short amount of time! :)
I'm heading to back to Nashville tomorrow afternoon and then home on Sunday night.

I just got into Nashville yesterday afternoon! It is so gorgeous down here! I love it! My friend DJ and I flew down here and are heading over to Chatanooga this afternoon for a HUGE photographer get-together!! Should be a blast! I can't wait! It was soooo great having DJ come and help me in the airport! Cause since I'm on crutches it's a pretty hard getting around with a ton of luggage! So it was a huge blessing that he came! Last night we went out with a guy that DJ is working with right now, Max Hsu. We sat and talked for like 3 hours and I learned so much it was amazing!
Ok..well just updating you all on where I am:) The picture of the sunset I stole off DJ's blog he took it from his room but my room has the same view! So incredible!
Love you all!

I'm getting pretty strong on these crutches and even though my leg doesn't hurt arms do!! lol!
So yesterday my sister and I finally got out and went shopping with my cousins which was so much fun!!! I made it on crutches for about the first hour or so then finally had to humble myself and get a wheel chair!!! AHHH!! LOL It was actually really fun! We almost had a couple accidents with it but my cousin finally got the hang of after awhile...
We had so much fun especially since everyone was trick or treating in the mall..
my cousin told one of the guys in the Apple store that my whole cast and wheelchair thing was my halloween costume and we're so hardcore that we actually broke my leg for the outfit! HAHA!!! yeah...
Ok...back to work! Just wanted to let you know I'm still alive...just in the cave right now..:)
