Why Mondays?

Why are Mondays so dreaded? I mean seriously - do they have to be so crappy?
Today was totally one of those days that I needed a do-over.

It's just one of those stressful week where everyone needs everything right now.

Ahhh.....however, I have found something just fabulous that will fix an evening of pure anxiety.
Pizza+cheesecake bites+theanine serene ( a natural anxiety supplement) has made for quite a better evening!

While today has been a bit much..the weekend was great! 4 photos shoots of some precious families always put a smile on my face!

I will have a few photos to share with you in a few days......but for now, I want to let you in on a few CDs that I'm LOVING right now!

Miranda Lambert's new CD Revolution is awesome! I love every single song. And it's pure country. LOVE it! You need it.

Next on the list is Tenth Avenue North - The Light Meets the Dark. AH! Fab, fab, fab!

And finally, Dierks Bentley - Up On the Ridge...Mmmm mmmm mmmm. Aside from the fact that he's a cutie pie, this cd is awesome. It's a very bluegrassy feel, but perfect drive music.

There's a few more songs that have caught my ear and I'm unsure if I want to commit to the whole CD.....if you have any input let me know. I'm loving "If I Die Young" by The Band Perry and "This Is Country" by Brad Paisley.

***Sidenote: I would just like to say that "This is Country" truly is what country music is all about and makes me extremely proud to be a country girl at my very core! Love, love, love it!***

So in case you need ideas for a Christmas list for someone, or for you, I would highly suggest those!

Moving right along, the strangest thing happened to me yesterday. I was shooting a little girl and her family and I had this super cute prop I was using. I'll be darned if another photographer didn't take a picture of me doing it. I'm not sure if I'm flattered that he liked my idea or pissed that he's going to steal it! Give the little man a break!!!
I guess imitation is the best form of flattery...or at least that's what they say.

Alright you beautiful bloggers, make it a great day!

***Side-sidenote: yes I realize I have completely failed at the 30 day blog challenge. So, I will be randomly blogging about the missed topics over the next few weeks.***


  1. Hey Lauren! Well THAT little piece of plagarism just stinks! You should have turned around and taken a picture of HIM stealing your idea, so he would know that you knew!

    Hope today is better than your Monday!

  2. I am having one of THOSE weeks too. Its really been one of those years. UGH. Im glad Im addicted to chapstick and not bad things.
