Bird Poop and a Challenge

Seriously, how is it already Monday?!  This past weekend flew right on by at light speed.  What the hell....no fair. 

So, this past Saturday was pretty busy.  We had our first wedding of the year down at Lake Bloomington, and it felt great to get back into wedding photography.  It was a smaller wedding, so it was a good way to jump right back into it!  We have a little break with the weddings for now, but not for too long.  We have two more (one of them is out of state!!) coming up in June!  Although we have a small break from the weddings, we are still pretty busy with other sessions, which is awesome.  I'm excited for everything to finally bloom so I can spend more time with outdoor sessions.  I love being able to offer indoor as well, but, there's just something about being outside and using all of that glorious natural light.  Can't wait! :-)

Anywho, I have a story for you......

The wedding this past Saturday was an outdoor ceremony at Lake Bloomington.  The ceremony overlooked the lake itself, and we were able to take almost all of the photos outside.  I was in the middle of taking pictures of the wedding party, and had just got done fixing the spacing/posing/etc, when all of a sudden I felt something fall on me.  I lifted my hand up immediately, brought it back down, only to discovery a bird had pooped above me, and I had somehow caught it when I lifted my hand.  Yes, you heard that right: a bird shit on my f'ing hand.  What the hell?!  I wasn't embarassed, because what could I have done?  Not to mention, I wanted to stay as professional as possible, but jeeze....really?!  They all told me I should go play the lotto because apparently when a bird decides to take a shit on you, it's good luck.  Needless to say, it was a first for me, and I'm hoping it was the first and last time it happens, but, you never know I guess.

In other news, in my quest for a healthier/more active lifestyle, I have decided to join Jess at Operation Skinny Jeans and a bunch of other awesome peeps for the 10 Week Challenge.

The challenge itself is pretty simple.  It runs for 10 weeks, and you set goals for yourself for what you'd like to accomplish throughout the challenge.  They can be weight/size/fitness/healthy eating goals, and there is a private Facebook group we're all members of to help us all stay accountable.  There is a mini-challenge each week that we can participate in as well, just to kind of help us stay on track.

The challenge for this first week was to take a "before" picture of our fridge.  Want to see it?  It's not pretty....


We aren't pop drinkers, are we? Haha.  I try to only have one per day, which is easier to stick to during the week than when we are running around on the weekends.

I'm really excited to see where these next 10 weeks take me.  The challenge ends on July 4th, which takes me right up to The Color Vibe 5K run that I signed up for on July 6th.  Darren has been super supportive and amazing with all of this, and being able to be more active with my little guy makes it so much easier to stick with the healthier stuff. :-)

Love my boys. :-)

Happy Monday, friends.  Make it a good one!

Great idea for a challenge. We do a health challenge at my office and that helps me. Good luck!

I JUST DIED FROM LAUGHTER. Seriously, in your hand?! OMG. What are the odds?! I love this story way too much.

On a bird note, one hit my windshield yesterday and it was scary as fuck. I stopped and it jumped upand flew away. So weird. I was going like 50 mph, it must be like the Iron Man of birds. Iron Bird.
