Week in Review: Week 94

Busy week. Busy busy busy. I’m making myself busy with blogging and vlogging and vlogmassing (spellcheck wanted to change that to massaging and that sounds really good). I tend, when I get into something, to go all in. And I’m really really trying to learn video editing. And while my vlogs are still crappy, they’re getting a little less crappy each time (smile).

Did a photo shoot last Saturday with a new photographer. I look tired but the pictures are nice.


Then I made a video about increasing your wardrobe by incorporating the use of base layers.


Caleb and I made it to the little local beach.




Designing a graphic tee.


A walk in the park.


Caleb makes friends wherever he goes.


Katie went through TWO chocolate-filled advent calendars in about four days.

She’ll be home this Wednesday – yay!!!


Santa Claus is coming to town.


I did something a little extra this time cuz I heard about a new Adobe video app called Spark so I gave it a try. It’s basically the same as Animoto, but it’s free. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments!


Week in Review: Week 75

It was a quietish week. Was it? Maybe not. I forget.


This is my solution to too-sheer curtains on the bathroom window that looks directly out onto my landlord’s garden (where he frequently is).


An unwelcome friend found while packing. I think he came in in a box.


And he was tossed out in a box. Ugh.


Going through old school yearbooks while packing. This is college.


And elementary school. Oofah. It was a bad hair year. But I loved this blouse, because Laurie Partridge on The Partridge Family had the exact same one.


I got out to a beach one evening with a friend. There was no sunset and it was actually a little drizzly…but still nice to be out in the air staring at the water.

At work we had a nice event one evening, dedicating the new gazebo to the memory of a dear friend and co-worker who passed away at the end of 2016. There were family members, employees past and present…lots of tear-filled speeches, but also some laughs…and mostly it was a celebration of her life shared by those who loved her. An emotional evening.

I spent a LOT of time searching for head coverings….


…so I don’t look like this.


I hope I feel well enough to go to this.

I had a photo shoot and went to dinner with friends after. Dinner was a vanilla milkshake.


A friend made me dinner and brought me flowers. That was very nice ❤

And now I really must get on with the packing. Moving date is less than 4 weeks away. It’s grey and dreary here today, I should get a lot done. Unless I take a nap instead.
