High Five for Friday!!

Dudes. A year ago tomorrow was my last day at my full time job before pursuing just one full time career, photography. What a year it has been!! I remember that I was so worried I would be so bored sitting at home and not have enough photography work to do and was scared I would never shower again or wear anything but my Gap sweatpants. The good news is that I have not once been bored and I still shower daily. Although, I do wear Gap sweatpants nearly everyday. Meh, you win some, you lose some. I love being able to say that I am super proud of myself for having the guts to take the leap and build a, so far, super successful photography business. I, of course, had an amazing and supportive network of family and friends encouraging me along the way even when I wasn’t sure it would ever work. Except my brother Brett, who actually stated I was nuts to quit my full time, awesome benefits and decent paying job during a recession, although I am sure he was just kidding and had total faith in me. Right, Brett? (Just testing to see if any of my family still reads my blog…) Anyway, enough with the sentimental, sappy stuff. I am just super happy!!!


But I’m not happy that I have nothing to sled on!





I need to do this. My eyes are nuts when I cut an onion.


So good to know.


I do wonder what people are thinking at the gym. A lot.


10 uses for vodka….rather than drinking it!


Is it true?? Is Kate having a girl??? Confirmation, damnit!!


The Dude who Inspired the Big Lebowski!!! I’ve always wondered this!


And lastly – how sad is this??? I can’t imagine a highway filled with lego pieces!!

    Kathy - Hate to burst the reverse pin bubble – I thought that was such a good idea only to find out the banks don’t want the technology. SO lame.

    Shanna - Congrats on your one-year Quitiversary! (I wanted to frame that more positively, like a start-something-new-and-great-iversary, but it just didn’t work as well.) You are so awesome!

    Ali - Congrats on your anniversary! I am so so so proud of you! Also you should probably get onion goggles…I have them and they are life-changing 🙂

    Sarah - Congrats on making it a year! My year anniversary is coming up here shortly! I’d better look into that! 🙂 I left and never looked back.

    My pin number is a palindrome, so the backwards number is the same as forwards. pretty sure it wouldn’t work! 😛

    Lauren - We can invest in some motorcycle helmets for onion cutting together, you know a 2 for 1 BOGO deal or something, I seriously bawl my eyes out. Ridiculous. Congrats on 1 year of AMAZING photography, you’re the bomb 🙂 See you soon!

    Mom - I feel like you should know that I, apparently, have a very strong mind:)

    Frank - Exceptionally great wrap-up today. That dog is hilarious. And apparently, Brett isn’t fulfilling his part of the deal and reading your blog.

  • March 8, 2013 - 8:38 pm

    Victoria - I love your anniversary date even though we no longer have an excuse to go to ADEC together (although, maybe one day!) Anyway, congrats on one year of self-employment! I knew you could do it, sis! xoxo
