5 Thoughts

1. Did you realize it is now less than two weeks until Christmas?!?  I cannot believe how quickly it is coming.  I do not want it to come because then that means it will be over.  It really is such a fun time of year that is going by way too quickly.

2. It snowed in Southern California this week!  Well at my kids school at least. A few years ago when it was 12-12-12, the PTA made a snow day (brought in a snow maker), for sort of a once in a lifetime kind of thing.  Well it was so popular that they do it every year now.  The kids love it.  We are supposed to get rain again for real now. Oh and speaking of fun days, Saturday is 12-13-14!

3. This weekend I have a photo shoot and then two more this month.  After that I think I am done until next year!   I have a lot of changes planed for my photography website.  Trying to do better about the business side of it. 

4. Today is the last day to link up for the Review Extravaganza if you want to get the bonus points for linking all four weeks.  If you really don't have time today, you can still join in and start up next week, you just won't get the bonus points but can still earn a ton of points. 

5. On Wednesday Eric and I went to his work party.  It was at a Brazilian restaurant where they bring around all the yummy meat.  Eric was in heaven needless to say.  It was a fun night though I did get one funny text from Lucas during it.
Thankfully they made up pretty quickly.   (And no he doesn't have a cell phone- he texts me from the iPad.

Got to see Lourie when she came for Alex's baptism

All dressed up for Eric's work party. My dress is actually dark blue- the lighting was bad
Dessert!  Yum!

What is your Friday 5 this week?

  1. That snow day idea is awesome! Especially for a city that rarely ever gets any snow.

    I cracked up at those texts from Lucas. :) I'm about to give Lexie my old iPhone 4S, but we won't be putting a SIM card in yet - just letting her use it when she's around WiFi or at home. When she turns 13 next year, though, I think we might be ready to spring for a phone plan for her, though. I'm kind of excited to be able to text her. :)

  2. I am freaking out about Christmas too! What happened? It arrived entirely too quickly. You and your husband look so nice. I love your hair. It's beautiful.

  3. I didn't realize that about tomorrow's date; neat! We had snow day at the kids' daycare a couple times and it is always fun. For places like Florida and Cali, this is a treat. :)

  4. That texting exchange made me laugh. Especially his last comment. And I love cool dates - 12-12-12 was great.

  5. Okay can we take some of Eric's height and add it to Mark... then I can wear heels and you'll still get to wear heels :) haha! You guys look very nice! And that's awesome that they bring snow in for the kids. I'll bet some of them haven't ever seen snow??
