405 photography

...that there was no traffic on the way to the kings game monday night.  otherwise, i wouldn't have been able to take this ridiculous passenger self portrait.  also thankful that the fiance was the only one there to laugh at me, although i can't account for the opinions of other drivers.

big shoes

...that i can hang my oversized stocking by the chimney front door with care, with hopes that st. nicholas soon will be here.  and cross my fingers that i'm on the nice list this year.  santa could easily get a puppy in there, right?

because it's rude to save seats

...for crossing off a wedding diy project.  table numbers may not be the most glamourous of matrimonial elements, but i was really happy with how these turned out.  bonus points to me for using extra wedding invites for this task.  darn you, vistaprint, for your 100 postcard minimum order.  good thing you make up for it with awesome sales.

secret santas

...that i could help pack some holiday gift baskets and make some (completely random) donations of my own yesterday.  nerd alert, but baby wipes really are an all purpose tool.

licking the cardboard

...for dessert themed birthday cards.  giant cupcakes may not be conducive to a fitted wedding dress, but a girl can dream.

pretty in pink

...for my students who showed me some birthday love today.  clearly, an important lesson i have taught them this year is my love of pink.  i told them that other great gifts would be good listening and everyone doing their homework.  maybe for xmas :).

toning without weights

...for instructional youtube videos.  while watching kandee johnson's diy wedding makeup tutorials (at home or pro?  to smoky eye or not to smoky eye?  decisions, decisions) the other day, she reminded me that i've had this impulse buy bottle of tonor in the back of my makeup cabinet for awhile now.  thanks to kandee, i know now that tonor goes on at night after you've washed your face in order to catch any makeup that didn't come off the first time around.  and surprisingly, there's a lot.
