Shit I really suck at

Oh Wednesday. Hump Day.

I've been waiting for my studio to open for damn near a year now. It's finally getting close but still, it's been FOREVER! I've always known I'm not exactly a patient person but this has pretty well confirmed that I am the most impatient person on the face of the planet.

This confirmation kinda struck an idea to write about really simple things that I majorly suck at.

- Being patient
See opening paragraph

- Sugar coating things
I'm so blunt. I try my hardest not to be. It's just so hard because seriously sugar coated shit still taste like shit. Might as well throw it out there how it is. Like ripping a band-aid off, it stings like a biotch right then - but it's way better than trying to drag out the news.

- Being quite
I'm loud & obnoxious 95% of the time. I laugh at inappropriate times. I really don't have an inside voice.

- Sitting still
This is probably due largely in part to my caffeine intake & my sheer lack of patience

- Masking disgust
If you do something stupid around me you'll be able to tell I think it's dumb because of the look on my face. I usually can pull it together pretty quickly, but initially you're gonna get the wtf face. And I might actually say "What the f*ck"

- Sleeping
I just usually can't. It's not because I don't want to.

- Texting
So I texted you right back? You're lucky! I eventually text everyone back {most of the time} But sometimes I read it & mentally respond and then never actually respond whoops.

- Facebook Birthdays
So bad at writing on people's walls for their birthday, but dammit I expect you to write on mine for my birthday!!!!

- Dieting
I like tacos & alcohol see this post

So now that I've confessed all of these things I suck at I'm going to link up with Kathy over at Vodka & Soda.

What are your confessions? Are you bad at any of these things too? 

Have a great rest of the week y'all!

My favorite movies in all of everdom

Hey guys, I hope you had a great Monday & a happy Easter!

Today I want to share with y'all some of my favorite movies!

My favoritest movie of all time is Top Gun - I LOVE it. When it's on tv I will drop everything to watch it. EVERYTHING. And in case you were wondering, DVDs can in fact be worn out. I had to buy a new copy of Top Gun bc I watched my initial copy so much I literally killed it. Plus - Tom Cruise, Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, & Hollywood {because his real name is Whip & that's weird}

Sweet Home Alabama - I could watch this movie erry day - it's so amazing. Sometimes what you're looking for is right where you left it. UGH YES!

An Affair to Remember. Judge me for loving one of the saddest, most unfortunate movies of all time. Don't care. I have a special connection with this movie. I really only watch it when I've had a really hard day or when I have just ended a relationship. And it is typically best to stay far far away from me during & after I watch it. It's an ugly cry movie. Plus, in my humble opinion, Cary Grant is what all men should aspire to be. 

I'm not all sappy

Mean Girls - LOVE THIS MOVIE I would be a shitty girl if I didn't. 
sidebar - as discussed this weekend I am a shitty girl, but that's a whole other post.

Bridesmaids - Seriously one of the funniest movies EVER.

Easy A - I LOVE Emma Stone, she really rocks this movie. I notice something new every time. It's fantastic. 

What are some of your favorites? Do we share any? I hope you all have a great week!

I have an addictive personality - now you know

Happy Friday Eve pretty people! Tonight is BUNCO night! I have been waiting for this since last month's evening ended! It was so much fun, y'all. I got to know some friends better & I made some new friends!

 It has been brought to my attention - by myself - that I have an addictive personality. God forbid I ever get my hands on something TRULY addictive.

I have kind of known this for a while. I get on something & I just can't stop. Like BBQ chips, don't even give me a full sized bag, I'll finish it in one sitting. Okay, so this might be more along the lines of I have absolutely ZERO self-control. But really, it's the same thing, is it not? 

You might remember way back when in January - on second thought, maybe February - questionable.  I talked about watching 2.5 seasons of Once Upon a Time in 2 weeks. Yeah, that was a little extreme even for the likes of me. I'm still obsessed, btw. Sundays take so long to come back around!

Grey's, I binge watch the shit outa that show too. And One Tree Hill. And Gilmore Girls. And Bridesmaids. And Top Gun & The Guardian (same movie, btw) Top Gun is better. Seriously when I see that one of those is on TV I will drop my entire life & watch that. Even though I own all of those things.

So when my mom & I found this new thrilling show; CRISIS, I knew it would be bad news. We were introduced by a good friend. There were 5 episodes on demand and the first night we stayed up until 12:30 when we both had work the next day watching. And ever since we cannot get enough. She's not as bad as me. It's not as time consuming for her because she doesn't feel the need to watch everything twice. Yeah, I know. It's ridiculous. But I want to make sure I'm well versed in all the quotes & what's happening!! And it's also because when I like something, I want more of it. Because more is better than less. 

Anyways, Crisis. It's based in DC. All of these really important diplomats kid's are on a bus to a field trip & the bus is hijacked {not the right word, don't care} The kids are taken & the captors make their parents do all of these crazy things to get their kids back! IT IS SO GOOD!!!!! Go start watching it now & either love me or hate me because you too will be addicted.

If you already watch it, thoughts?? 

Until tomorrow, friends. hugs & cookies.

My favorite iPhone-ography apps!

Hi Friends! Let's talk about iPhone-ography today!

Making images with the trusty ol' iPhone has been growing in popularity since… well, since the iPhone came into existence. And now, it is easier than ever to get some really great quality photos using just your phone. Today, I am dedicating this post to a few of my favorite iPhone photography apps!

1. Instagram, obviously! This is my social media of choice. I prefer it to Facebook, yet I do post most of my images to fb from Insta. It's so much fun to see what everyone is up to based off of the images they share! And it's free, duh!

Here is what my photography group looks like on my phone, Instgram isn't in there because I use it multiple times during the day, so I just have that icon out on it's own!

2. InstaSize is my newest favorite! What I started out using this app for is I wanted to share the images of my sessions that I had fully edited but I didn't want to make square format hence comes in Instasize. It shrinks your regular sized images to fit into squares with boarders to share on Instagram. BUT in the past couple days I discovered you can add fun, glittery borders, really freaking awesome filters & edgy overlays, awesome stickers, and text. You can also collage with it! It's a free app that you can purchase upgrades for. I haven't purchased any upgrades, the ads don't bother me. And most of the overlays & borders are free!

I was definitely not using this app to it's full potential, but I certainly will be now!!

3. PicFrame - this is my favorite app for making collages. They can be square format or you can make them rectangular. It's a pretty cool one. I think this one was a paid app.

4. Studio Design - I use this for making word art on the go. It has some really cool graphics & overlays. And not to mention so really great fonts! But you can also add photos to it and make memes or things like that. It's free and a really cool one!

5. Last & most definitely not least is Flipagram. This one is free too & you can add your pictures to make a quick little instavideo using your own music from your phone or some provided tunes. I use this to make my end of the year videos & you know when you get over excited and take a shit-ton of pictures and don't want to post them all separately use this! And put it to music the best part!
I hope you learned something new about some apps you didn't know existed! Do you use any of these am I missing out on some cool features? Tell my your favorites, especially if there is one I didn't mention! I'd love to hear all about it!

Carlos - the cat with thumbs & a PSA

Carlos - the cat with thumbs: This cat is so cool, and I hate cats - but I love Carlos. Carlos adopted my friend's family several years ago & he has thumbs. How awesome is that?! I snap chat his thumbs every time I go over there. In addition to having thumbs, Carlos probably weighs like 15 pounds. He's HUGE!

Public Service Announcement: There is a soda it's called Ski. It's orgasmic. And full of caffeine & it is my godsend. It's made in a small town in Southern Illinois. And you NEED to try it. Go HERE & see if you can get it somewhere near you. Like seriously, it's the closest I have ever felt to heaven.  The Kentucky Headhunters even put it in a song.

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen this image. Our tiny little school celebrated 100 years in 1997, clearly you can see that hahah. But I was at the school/church last night for a youth group Lambert's style dinner. That was a great time! Except I felt really really old because I had to pull one of the few girls working I did know over & ask who the heck everyone was! Some of those kids in the group were 10 years younger than me! I remember always having a great time working that dinner. Anywho, I digress. I saw this picture and did a little joy-dance. We were in kindergarten & we were so darn cute!! So there is Kindergarten Em - the one with clenched folded hands, dressed in all purple, a typical outfit I am told. The girl next to me is still my BFF to this day. And that boy in the blue 100 shirt  - we're still extremely close as well! I clearly suck at iPhone-ography because I can't center things.
But seriously how cute are we all in our little socks & tennis shoes?!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Have you ever seen a cat with thumbs or had a ski? Have a great week my loves!

2. I'm going to combine all the other studio stuff into one:
    We (Daddy) got all the nasty tile scraped up, I picked up after him. Isn't that machine fancy?
    They let me use a hammer - I only got to rip nails out, but hey it's a start
     I got my glass door & interior doors
     I finalized my paint colors - Just FYI Sherwin Williams is having a 40% off paint sale today until         monday. Go get you some paint.


3. I played with a new off camera flash technique during my senior shoot this past weekend. LOVE! 

4. On Wednesday morning I posted that I needed 3 more likes to 500 on my business FB page & within 16 minutes I have 501 likes. By the end of the day I had 549! Shameless plug, go like it, please!! :) 

5. This song makes me smile so much - love George Strait :)
