New Snow Removal Business | Port Washington Photographer

Declan got a surprise birthday present in the mail today! It was a lawn mower! Although, with the weather, I told him it was a snowblower like Daddy's. He loves watching Kyle snowblow, I do too in fact (because that means I'm not doing it! HA!) He has been sick all week with a nasty cold but he really seemed to enjoy our little playtime outside.
The newest art edition to the Wright house was our Little Friends of Printmaking Lost inspired print. Kyle and I were HUGE Lost fans and I saw this at an alternative craft fair, I wanted it. It is Charlie in the submarine and just before he met his watery grave he wrote "Not Penny's Boat" on his hand to warn Desmond. Ah, so intense!! The colors match our room perfectly but Kyle liked it better in our living room so there is it! Love it! And a big thanks to Picture Perfect for framing it.Honey child, I thought the shelving unit we got for his birthday from my sister and dad would help with the clutter and toy madness that is slowly taking over our entire house. This scene happens on a daily basis. Why?! Why must he take out everything and then ditch to play with the dog bowls or the tupperware in the cabinet? I love this baby. I do not love this mess.
Last weekend of relaxation before I have a shoot every weekend for the next month or so. Cannot wait!! Bring it.

The Good With the Bad

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. We went to a friend's house for a Packer party. And yes, we were the only Bears fans there (there was a Cowboys fan there too!). Yadda, yadda, you know how the game ended. BUUUUUUUUUUUUT, I brought taco dip!! I am going to spill the recipe, well ingredient list because really, you don't make anything. So easy and DEEEE-LISH!!
1 14.5 oz of vegetarian refried beans
1 small container of Sendik's guacamole (sorry people who don't live in the Milwaukee area, you will have to figure something else out because their guac is THE BEST!)
1 medium container of Daisy sour cream (I use 2/3 of the container)
1 pack of taco seasoning (I use 1/2 the packet-mix with sour cream)
Shredded cheese (we use Sargento's Mexican Blend)
1 bag of shredded iceberg (or you could do it yourself)
1 small can of sliced black olives (optional)
Taco Chips (we recommend many brands, contact for further info)
Layer appropriately and enjoy!
Crap, now everyone knows how easy it is...
Declan on Friday. Look at that hair. Crazy wild.

Friday Fun

Well, I have said it a million times to the Smith Brothers Coffee baristas that it is never too cold for iced tea. I fully retract my statement. While I did have some of my home brewed Citron, I just cannot go outside today. Even the pups aren't going out, they dash out, do their business and are right back at the door in no time. Declan was supposed to have a make up swim class today but it was canceled. So, we are having an indoor day!

I am sending out a contract today to shoot a wedding in Maryland, I couldn't be more excited! I am one wedding away from my minimum goal of five weddings for 2011, so that is encouraging. So if you know anyone who is gettin' hitched, send them my way. Something Blue Images

Random Thoughts
-Modern Family--Are. You. Kidding. Me?! I love it.
-Alterra on Oakland is now open in Shorewood. DANGEROUS having one so close to work!
-Kyle and I took Declan to Just 4 Fun on Wednesday (What? You, Maggie, germaphob?! Yes, me. And yes, we sanitized like crazy when we were done.) and we had the joint to ourselves! Declan played with all of the basketballs, he is really into things he can throw right now (not limited to balls as Colby found out). A couple kids came and started to play basketball and Declan sat down and watched! It was too cute. Here his is showing off his climbing skills. I didn't bring my camera with so iPhone photos will have to do.

Snow Day | Milwaukee Portrait Photographer

Almost 5 pm and it has been snowing since 7 am. Declan and I hung out around the house until I started going crazy so we bundled up and I shoveled the driveway. The snow that is falling isn't that light, fluffy snow...no sir! This is the break your back, have to kick the shovel along the driveway snow. Shovel, you ask? It is 2011 lady, don't you have a snowblower?! I really need to start listening when Kyle explains the snowblower to me. He has given a handful or so of lessons, each time I listen enthusiastically and nod like I am soaking in all the information. Nope, negative, nada. I mosey on over to the snowblower, look it over, kick the wheels and sigh. Shovel it is. I plopped Declan in the snow and cleared the way. I did notice that as I got closer to the street, there is a pretty severe taper, making the entrance wide enough for a bicycle. But that all changed when I plowed the minivan down the driveway and cleared the rest of the snow! Oooops!

Ch-ch-check it, yo! New blog layout!! You like it? I am still figuring out how to use it (the photos are supposed to display larger...and there is a slideshow that needs to go on top-coming soon) Don't really have any other hard business news to share right now, too much is still up in there air. Stayed tuned!!
Not the best photo of Declan but LOOK AT THOSE CHOMPERS!
