Wishlist Wednesday

Hello there. I hope the week has been treating you good so far. I still have to edit the pictures of my friends skydiving which I will do very soon, hopefully tonight. Watching that experience from the ground was so unreal!
Here are 5 things that I wish I owned, which makes it my "wishlist".
 I've been wanting white or off-white shoes with a teeny heel for a while and these are perfect.
 But if I had to choose, I'd get these instead. Aren't they cute!?
 And how cute is this dress from ModCloth? I love it.
 It's about that time again, the Fall season is here and although we probably won't feel it for another month here in Southern California I still want to get me a new coat. This one is just lovely.
I've been a fan of The Black Apple for a while now and I never get bored of her artwork. I would love to add this print to my collection.

Have a lovely Wednesday!

"I Adore..." Tuesday

Hello. So far, I'm liking my scheduled blog posts and even though it's only Tuesday I can't wait for my Feature Friday post. Anywho, here are 5 things that I adore this week.

 These beautiful key necklaces from mucho mucho bueno bueno.
 These really cute hair clips from Giant Dwarf

 And this incredible bunting from dottie angel
Hope you're enjoying your week so far.

Motel Polaroid Monday

I already started a little late with this new post. This is a project I'm working on because I love Polaroids and interesting motel signs. Enjoy.

The Weekend is So Close

This week has gone by so fast, at least for me. For most of the day, I thought yesterday was Tuesday. I'm really excited about Saturday though, two of my friends are jumping out of a plane! Now there's something I'd never want to do.

I found this Market Bag Makeover tutorial on yes...Design Sponge. It's such a cute idea and anyone with basic sewing skills can do it. Check it out.

I'm pretty much excited about Elsie's new Autumn class. It includes two of my favorite things: photos and journals. Anyone else taking this class?

The wedding I shot this weekend went pretty well and it was actually fun. It was a simple and beautiful ceremony, I'll have to post pictures as soon as I finish editing them. The couple to be wed were so laid back so I wasn't nervous in the least bit.
I decided to start a new blog regimen to keep me going as a steady blogger. It's going to start on Monday and this is what the schedule will look like:

Monday- Motel Polaroid Mondays
Tuesday- "I adore..." Tuesdays
Wednesday- Wishlist Wednesdays
Friday- Feature Fridays

The rest of the days will be free days for anything. This should get me back into the swing of things. I'm especially excited about Mondays and soon you'll see why.

Well, tomorrow is a big day for me. I'm shooting my first wedding...alone. My old classmate will be doing the video. I'm not nervous yet but I know I will be when I get there. I have confidence that I will do well and that makes me excited. Wish me luck!

Changing the subject, I love everything about Design Sponge but I've been especially loving their DIY tutorials. Here are a few of them that you should try:

Peaches' Coffee Filter Flowers

Faux-Embroidery Quote Hoops

Hope you enjoy these and have a great weekend.

Simple Goal #3

I've been riding my bike a lot more, well about three times since I posted it on my goal about a month ago. But that is still more times than I've ridden it when I was living in Ventura, which was zero. I spent a good part of Saturday having it a "me" day. I rode my bike down the bike path which runs from Burbank to North Hollywood.

That path is pretty new but there's a lot of artwork on the side of the buildings to make the ride a little more enjoyable.

I plan on doing more solo bike rides after work to get my stamina going. I felt really good afterwards and hopefully I'll get to fit into a smaller dress size soon.
After the bike ride I headed over to Samy's camera to get my flash fixed. I'm shooting my first wedding next weekend and I don't want anything to go wrong. I'm so nervous! Afterwards I went to Barnes & Noble to pick up a few magazines and books. It was such a nice day so I went to the park to read my books. Here I have:
-Water for Elephants
-ReadyMade Magazine
-Foam Magazine
-Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet
-Ceremony Magazine (for research)

I'm almost finished with Water for Elephants. It's been a really good read and I can't wait to see the movie. I get the feeling I'm not going to like it as much as the book though, that's how it always goes but we'll see.

Later that night, Joe and I went to eat pizza at an Italian restaurant. Their regular crust was better than the thin crust but it was that kind of pizza that if you ate too much of it, you can't have it again for a few months.

I took a picture of this wall because I thought it looked cool and I had never seen it before.

Simple Goal #1

I got my hair cut yesterday and I feel great. I ended up donating 10 inches of hair and it was shorter than I thought it would be but I don't mind. The only thing that bugs me is that the ends poke my neck, I'm not used to short hair.

I now get to use hair products that I've had since the last time I had short hair which was probably about a couple of years.

Have any of you accomplished and goals lately?
