Waiting For The Weekend, So I Can Move My Body

I found these pictures on the camera card when I grabbed the pics from this weekend for the blog. I can’t really remember why I didn’t post them, but I can tell you that right before my break I had gotten to where I hated pretty much every picture we took. I was just not in a good place. I was so stressed out about the potential job offer for Nathan and what that might mean for our lives (all good things but a lot of stressful things as well) that I was just downright unpleaseable*.

Looking back at them now I feel kind of sad that I was so unhappy with them that I didn’t even post them because they are not that bad. I look tired yes, and my smile is pretty low watt, but the outfit itself is really cute.

October 27

Just a little bit about what’s going on with the blog…I have ordered a new camera. One that has a self timer, but one of those FANCY self timers what you can set to take up to like, 30 pictures in one go.

October 27

That way I’ll be able to go back to shooting my own pictures when Nathan is not available (so, basically, most days). My point and shoot passed away sometime during Nathan’s unemployment and I’m a point and shoot girl. I just am. Once that arrives I plan to get back to posting 4-5 times a week again. And as an added bonus for me, I get to start fresh, with a few new clothes you’ve never seen and a fresh perspective. I’m excited about it!

*I get that it’s not a real word, Spell Check, I am using it anyway, mkay? Mkay.

New camera?!?! I'm so jealous! And new clothes? I'm so glad things must be going well in your life! You definitely deserve it!

I find myself disliking some pictures of myself, too, and wishing I did something like http://hellomonkeyface.blogspot.com/ so I didn't have to worry about my clothes, my hair AND my face!!

I'm so glad you are back! Nathan's new job means a lot changes all at once for you guys. Yes, good changes, but changes non the less. Totally understandable that you needed a break. I'm looking forward to seeing your new outfits and the photos you'll take with the new camera. Have fun with it all!

Unpleaseable is now a word. :)

That IS a super cute outfit and although you may not be grinning from ear to ear, you still look so pretty in these pictures.

Yay!! I'm so happy that you will be returning to posting! I always love seeing what outfits you come up with (this one you've posted, case in point!)

And I'm glad to know that I'm not the only point and shoot camera girl out there...

I think you look beautiful, sugar! I'm so happy for you that you got a new camera. (I just dropped mine on the floor, so I need to look into getting a new one too!) Even at low wattage your smile makes me smile!

Mimi said...

Great tights...yeah i dont get why you didnt post before. Looks fantastic. I hope you are less stressed about job offer, and good luck with your new camera:)

Kristen said...

The stripes and paisley together work so well, and the purple tights make it fun but not over the top. So glad you posted this oldie-but-goodie!

Enjoy the new camera and have fun figuring out how to do self-portraits. Totally worth it if it means Nathan is working again, right? You guys made it through!

Louise said...

You look so gorgeous, down to the purple tights! I love your pictures. You also have the prettiest hair!
