I’m¬†supposed to be learning about the different structures of the skeletal system. ¬†While taking pictures of each piece of bone to study later at home I took the most epic photo of this Mandible. ¬†I’ve always loved photography and now I want to go around taking beautiful pictures of every piece of bone in class! ¬†Well I’ve got to go back to work, tally ho!

Photo shoot in the snow

img_3258For the past several years I’ve been thinking about how to build my children’s college fund while staying financial stable at the same time. ¬†About a year ago I saw opportunities in Atlanta, 3 hours from where I live, for acting and modeling. ¬†My oldest daughter started working as a background artist shortly after. ¬†Then was offered a job doing a photo shoot for the same show as one of the main characters younger version. ¬†It brought it a good chunk of cash to start her savings account and since then I’ve been looking for work for my other daughters.

Our snowy weekend inspired a photographer that was offering model experience to do a snow shoot. ¬†It was a chance to start investing in my middle daughters future so¬†I dressed her in warm clothes then carried a big thick blanket to the shoot. ¬†It only took about 5 minutes for the entire shoot and she did great! ¬†She now has an audition we are going to on Tuesday night! I’m excited to see what the future holds for her and hopefully her college fund will grow!

Top of the Morning

I’ve ¬†ended the holiday break with a bang! My sister and I were looking into things to do to bring in the New Year. ¬†She wanted to find a dance or something to meet other singles but I suggested we do something for us. ¬†Screw men, I want to focus on my happiness and do something new! As I brainstormed about it I came up with an idea that we should go to one of those painting classes. ¬†Neither of us had ever been and I loved the idea of starting the New Year not only doing something new but creating something new! I had so much fun. ¬†I sang and danced most of the night while painting and at the end they told me I had won the spirit award for having so much pep HA! ¬†I didn’t even know there was a contest! ¬†Even though the drive home almost killed me, seeing as my bedtime is strictly 8pm, I had a great night out which doesn’t happen often. ¬†Turns out my kids ended up painting at theirs dads house New Years Eve as well, what are the odds?!

My sister is back home, and life as we know it has continued. ¬†With the girls being back in school and me being at work I’m not so stressed anymore. ¬†I know it sounds silly to get worked up over not having anything to do but I’m a busy body so being idle throws me into panic mode. ¬†Don’t get me wrong I love to sit in “my chair” at home, we all have our special chairs we like to sit in, but I can’t watch TV without making a hat or have a morning cup of Joe¬†without writing a blog post. ¬†Welp, top of the mornin’ to you! ¬†Tally Ho!
