- Thomas went indoor skydiving.
His buddy Mic turned four, and so Mic, Thomas, Zac and Alicen headed north to iFly at Southcenter. I was flying home from Atlanta at the time...so I LOVE LOVE LOVED touching down and opening this video that Amy shot for us. He loved being Peter Pan and did even better the second time.
- I think fall will always be intense.
Even with a relative few travel dates for me (just Anchorage and Atlanta this fall), the entire season flew by. Thrilled to have nearly a dozen major design projects all finished up and sent to the printer, and working like mad to get my latest shoots out before a full day of mini sessions tomorrow. Things are crazy until Thanksgiving, and then the day after Thanksgiving, our tree farm opens for business through Christmas. I LOVE IT.
- I've lost ten pounds in the last two weeks.
Apparently, there is something to the "eat less, move more" theory. Who knew? What also helped? Jonathan bought me new boxing gloves for our gym in the mancave. Autumn came over and we had an incredible hour with the speedbag and punching bags...and even headed out into the night for a starlight walk (which you need a lantern for on the farm). It's helped balance out the crazy office hours I have right now (yesterday, they were 3:15 - 9:30 am and then switching gears to 'mommy mode').
- Love fall cooking.
We've had lots of soups (chicken & rice or turkey & rice are my faves right now), fresh italian baguettes, and I made an awesome turkey, swiss and apple panini.
- Love my Silhouette cutter.
Working on wooden projects for the tree farm, awesome vinyl lettering for cars, made sweet mustaches for The Mauss Group's hilarious Christmas shoot for Dad's last official ML Christmas card before retirement, a sweet skull & crossbones eye patch for the Wee Ski 1.0's pirate costume, and cool custom pumpkins for the farm and Relay. This thing is ridiculously addictive.
The bane of my existence. Working on getting rid of things and touching things only once. So incredibly tough.
- Alexander hit 17 pounds!
An awesome milestone. Yesterday, he ate two eggs, a banana, and half cup of cheerios for breakfast. He's got cheeks and giggles and babbles and LOVES his older brothers. I will upload some photos soon. He is ridiculously awesome.
