Wedding pictures!!

Yes, the long awaited day has arrived. Jason and I went and picked up our wedding pictures last night. I am busy loading them onto my computer so keep checking back and I'll have some posted before the day is out.

Ice Cream.

I love ice cream. Lately, I've been eating it with (or for. . .) every meal. I know, a bad bad habit. But really, how can something so good be so bad for me? Currently, we have three cartons of ice cream in our freezer. Rasberry Sherbet, Vanilla Bean and Butterfinger. Now this isn't because we are glutenous people who spend all our money on ice cream so we can gain an exorbitant amount of weight, but because my former roommates brought over ice cream and then left it because there is no room in their freezer. I promise.

Uh oh. . .

It seems I have gotten myself into a very expensive hobby. I just found another camera accessory to add to my wish-list. They are the cutest camera/lense bags I absolutly love all the prints, especially Baroque, Jessica Claire, Warm and True. Apparently they're so popular that within a few weeks of the product launch, they were all sold out. So luckily for my bank account (and Jason), I can't be tempted. But no fear, the photographer who designed these has promised there will be more available soon. I'm on a notification list.

The Skinny

At work we take turns writing The Skinny column that runs in the Life and Style section every Wednesday. This week was my turn and here's a sneak peak at what I wrote!

The Skinny:

I am a newlywed. It’s fun, really. I love having someone that makes me laugh, someone I love being with and someone who always knows what to say to calm me down – I am what my mom calls “intense.” I love cooking for him and cleaning up after him. I enjoy decorating our apartment and talking about how energy efficient we are with our hybrid car and 13-dollar utility bill.

But don’t be deceived; newlywed bliss is not without its hardships. First of all, there’s the stack of duplicate/bulky/just plain unneeded wedding gifts to return. Our return pile is not nearly as cumbersome as others I’ve seen, but we still aren’t sure what to do with our 6 salad bowls, 4 cheese graters and 2 waffle irons.

Second: The whole legal name-change thing. There are Social Security, IRS 8822, United States Passport, United States Postal Service, and State Driver’s License forms that I need to drive around and pick up. Then I need to fill them out, provide a certified proof of marriage and return them to the right place. And then hope I didn’t mess up somewhere along the way. Such. A. Hassle. I could save myself and estimated thirteen hours and pay an online service – like – thirty dollars to do it all for me, but do I really want to submit such personal information to a Web site? I’ve got an identity to protect!

Third: Insurance. Luckily my hubby’s job provides full medical and dental coverage, but not without – you guessed it – yet another round of paperwork and signatures. The good news is, after this is all over I’ll be an expert on filling out paperwork. Not exactly a skill one can boast about on a resume, but I’ll take it.

And last, but certainly not least, the love of my life leaves the toilet seat up.

Purposeful procrastination

I am the worlds worst procrastinator. I have a story due for the newspaper, and frankly, I've hardly made a dent in it. But good news, I haven't been completely waisting time. Not at all in fact, I've planned a get-together, started planning a bridal shower, picked up my house a bit, run errands for my mom and most importantly (drum roll) started a photography blog!

It's not much to look at, really, but it's a step in the right direction for the photography career I hope to someday have. I own a beautiful camera with lenses I adore and the only thing that makes me happier than my husband is when I'm shooting pictures.

BUT! I need a title for my blog. Currently it's JAE Photography, but that's only temporary. This is where you come in, I need suggestions for a blog title and the winner gets a big fat kiss. Or maybe a dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies. Your choice.
