{las vegas + WPPI}

so i can’t even explain to you how excited daryl and i are right now! we are headed to the great state of Nevada in just two days!! we are going to visit our fabulous friends nikki and elary for 10 days! whoa! i know its crazy! we are also going to go to WPPI 2009! For those of you who don’t know how amazing WPPI is or what it is, its the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International Convention and Tradeshow held in LAS VEGAS!! (and the best part is that its all tax deductible!) this will be our first trip to WPPI, so its going to be a brand new experience for both d and i. we can’t wait to see if we can meet some of the folks we blogstalk!

nikki and elary also surprised us with tickets to see the Cirque de Soleil show “Ka“! we have been wanting to go to a Cirque show for forever! and a day. Seriously – so when they told us what all we were doing for the trip – we about went crazy! we can’t wait to leave for the big adventure on WEDNESDAY!! i can’t believe its here already.

aren’t these costumes crazy? i can’t wait to see what its like in person!

we will be shooting a family session while we are there in vegas and visiting San Diego too! we’ve never been to the coast so we are excited! this will be one of the biggest – not to mention longest trips we have ever taken so we can’t wait to start the fun! we’ve missed nikki and elary so much so it will be so great to take a lil georgia to the other side of the states! pictures of the craziness to insue will follow. :) have a great week…

Melissa with Soul Mates Photography - my my goodness you are so sweet! that just totally made my day :) I wish there were more people like you in the world! Your stuff rocks too!

{one of those days}

so…i’m having one of those days…seriously…i can’t seem to get it together. WHAT IS MY PROBLEM? do you ever have those days? when everything you touch breaks or falls or just doesn’t work the way it should. woke up late – tripped on my computer cord – forgot my wedding rings at home – dropped my breakfast in the floorboard of my car – am irratitated with everything everyone does – went to the mall (which can be the worst experience you have ever had if you go at the wrong time) – witnessed 2 wrecks and got caught by every train that comes through augusta georgia! ITS ONLY LUNCH TIME PEOPLE!!! seriously – what is my problem!? sometimes it just seems like you should just get back in bed and hope for the end of the day to come. i have tried to right the whole day by having starbucks and a snickers. and somehow i feel worse? how is that happening?!! oh…here’s hoping the rest of the day gets better…i will stop in to let you all know.

Mandie - I am sorry things aren’t going so well today. But you made mine fantastic! You are the best friend a girl could have. Maybe all you need is a hot bubble bath and some Ingrid Michelson :)
