Friday Randoms

1- A small moment of one warm day. . . Nolan insisted on being outside, so we went out on the front steps for a little bit. Yes, he insists on carrying 3 cars with him when he leaves the house. 2 are always The King and Boost. The third one rotates. And he's getting better about wearing his sunglasses. As you can see, they don't stay in place very well on his little face.

2- The excitement of PhotoCamp Utah is palpable among the photographer set right now. Following a bunch of them on Twitter reminds me of a bunch of kids getting ready to go to Disneyland. It's awesome.

It starts at 8 am tomorrow, which does not please me one bit. . . but I can suck it up. Hopefully when we can talk to them and help them understand how we can help their business, we will gain a whole batch of exciting new clients.

This idea scares me, don't get me wrong. There will be a lot of organization involved . . . But it's mostly an exciting prospect.

3- I feel that my giddiness of warmer temperatures and blooming trees and flowers is dampened significantly by the crazy allergies that are plaguing our household this week. I am sure I have experienced the crazy levels of TIRED I'm feeling before. . . but I don't remember, and I don't like it. I could barely move yesterday for the tired. . .

Must visit a Dr. and get some good drugs STAT. Zyrtec is not cutting it.

On the plus side, I found a really cool iphone app, called Allergy Alert, that tells me what the pollen counts are like and what days will be good and bad. That's pretty fun, right?

4- One of the things that has tortured me during this diet has been cookies. I never really considered cookies to be a particular vice of mine, but I have discovered that they are one of the only things I just seriously CRAVE. It doesn't help that Girl Scout Cookies are roaming around (Maybe even in my own pantry) to torment me. Can you say Tagalongs?

If you are NOT on an insane diet, I have a solution for you to the shortage of girl scout cookies you find yourself in. . . Rather, Ms. Baking Bites does. Recipes for home made versions of your favorites!

You're welcome.

5- Nolan has a new buddy. Tamera's nephew Erick is just a little bit older than him, and has come over to play a few times. Last week, they went to the park. Erick calls Nolan "best friend".

How cute is that?

Is Noah gonna have to come kick Eric's tush? Haha!

Thanks for the Nolan clip... I love that he carries cars around!! Noah has been preferring stuffed kitty cats. Not so bada** as Nolan. Oh well.
