Birthday Week is Never Easy

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

We bought a waterproof/fireproof safe recently for important bills. I joked with Scott that he can hide my candy in there as well. But then then I will probably be outside with the safe throwing it against the concrete ground trying to open it for the candy lol His birthday was this week and as a gift I went on a hunt for his grandma's cookie recipe. He has been wanting that recipe for yrs. His aunt gave me that one and a PB kisses cookie recipe. I ended up having a lot of kisses left over that didn't need to be in the cookies. I binged on hershey hugs yesterday UGHHH like 1000 calories worth. He didn't hide them from me very well...Hence needing the waterpoof/fireproof safe! I also made bbq ribs, homemade mashed potatoes and corn for his birthday. Aside from the millions of cookies I sent to work. Oh and also this creepy cookie cake.

My birthday is Friday then hopefully I can get back on track. My week has been kinda throwing off whack. I usually hit a water class on Monday and didn't since it was husbands birthday. Tuesday couldn't either, today I can hit a dance class. So things should feel better at 4:50 today lol Then for the rest of the week I have classes I can hit.

Last Saturday I photographed my dance teacher and her husband for maternity photos. I will share a few.

It's amazing how you either see chemistry in couples or not. I have had shoots where I am like "ughhh why am I so bad at this?!?!" then you get couples like these two that just look at each other and smile and make my job so easy!

I found a new stylist that is awesome and came to my house to cut my hair!

Other than that I have just been on the road a lot. Lots of early morning and afternoon naps.

Speaking of which I gotta head out. Have a wonderful week you guys!

    We gave our son a safe and have 2 big ones of our own. They are really important to have.

    Scott's birthday meal sounded delicious. For some reason I don't like chocolate kisses and candy bars as much as I used to. I don't know if they have changed the recipe of them or what.

    Loved the cookies cake!!

    I hope you had a happy birthday. I have not been online much lately as I have been having medical tests. Sorry I missed it.

    Loved your new hairdo and the pictures.

    Love your new haircut!!!

    And yes, the maternity shots are wonderful - what a great couple!

    I actually like the creepy cake, mostly because it looks like brownies smiling at me!!!!

    Gorgeous pictures, as always. :)

    I'm sorry to hear about the Hershey Kisses, that really sucks! I have the same problem. And I know myself enough that I will send Dan to work with Halloween candy in the trunk of his car, so then it won't even be in my house. It's one of the hardest things for me to walk away from.
