Simple Sunday Ramblings...

Hello my most favorite people ever! Hope you guys have been more productive than I have are having a wonderful weekend. In true totally random tradition, I have several completely pointless mind dumping thoughts {and even a few photos} for you.
  • We have completed 98% of the painting in our living room and foyer. I was a little surprised because I actually like the off-white wall color in here. I hated it when we moved in {which is why we are having to paint again now...because I didn't want to leave it white.}I think it's partly because the paint was faded and really dingy looking. Now that there is a fresh thick coat and the baseboards have been cleaned and touched up, it looks really good. It doesn't look as big with white walls, but none the less.
  • We still have to paint Little Man's room. Just the one wall, so it shouldn't take very long. We're waiting to do that in a few weeks. Hubby's mom and Little Brother are coming to visit the second or third week in March to take a few of the things we aren't putitng in storage [like our literally brand new 42" Vizio....no way that is going in a storage unit for 5 months] and visit during their Spring Break. She's going to take Little Man back with her so that I we can get all of the last minute stuff done here. It will be a nice little break for the hubby and I to get some alone time before we go home for everyone to drive us completely crazy.
  • I have officially decided to make the big switch to Wordpress. I have thought about it and thought about it and thought about it. I've looked at different blogs and read all of the pros and cons and I've decided that this is going to be the best decision for me. I'm really wanting to grow this blog into something BIG and with my photography starting up, I think Wordpress will be better equipped for me.
  • Similarly, I'm going to fork over the cash for a professional design. I'm deciding between two designers right now, but I think I have made my mind up. I'm not going to say who just yet, because it's going to be another few weeks before I actually "hire" them [gotta get up the funding and such, you know]. But I am REALLY excited. I've looked at their work and it's a.m.a.z.i.n.g! I want something professional, simple and stylish and since I have no idea how to edit with wordpress, I'm going to have to hire someone. And I'm pretty sure that if I spend the money to have someone do it for me, I'll be less likely to want to change it. As I tend to do here.
  • I'm also going to incorporate my photography blog with this blog. That way everything is together and I won't have to pay for keep up two blogs. And, much to my own dismay, I'm afraid I'm going to end up changing my blog name again. I'm just really not feeling this name. It doesn't reflect everything that I want it to and I'm just not happy with it. ::Sigh:: When I "make the move" I want everything exactly right. I want the name to work, the design to work and I want to really set myself up to establish a name for myself online. I'm so excited.
  • I'm getting my very first camera lens on Monday [well, that would be tomorrow]!!!
  • This summer is going to be crazy busy...the more I keep thinking about it, the more I realize that, even though hubby will be gone, it's going to fly by. I'm doing my very first maternity "shoot" in July for one of my very best friends. I've got lots of ideas but a lot of work to do before then. I've got several purchases to make and a whole bunch of studying to do. I'm really excited, but somewhat nervous too.
  • I am in dire need of a mental break. My mental health is on low right now and I am very much anticipating the quiet two weeks alone during the time when Little Man is in Alabama. I love being a mommy and I love my little man more than anything else in the entire world, but his newfound sense of clingyness, whineyness and lack of desire to SLEEP during the day is leaving me ill, frustrated and absolutely exhausted. Add to that the stress of moving and the frustration with a few other things we've had going on lately and it makes for one stressed out and worn out mommy.
  • I'm about to buy a new computer and I'm unsure which one to get. I know I'm going to get a laptop, but I don't know what to buy. I've looked at Dells, Toshiba's and HP's but I'm stuck. Can't make up my mind. Does it really make a difference or is it just a matter of brand preference?
  • I didn't watch any of the Olympics this year. Boo Hoo. Couldn't get into it and couldn't really find the time to. LOL I don't even know what the medal count is or anything. Is that bad? Unpatriotic in some sense? I hope not, because if it is, then I failed. Oops.
  • Our computer charger bit the dust again the other day. This is the FOURTH charger we have bought for this thing in the year that we have had it. Right now the husband has it rigged well enough to use it, but it's a piece. Going to have to order a new one [again] tomorrow.
Guess that's all for now. My son is awake and screaming and the husband is studying for his big test at work on Tuesday. Guess that means mommy has to 'answer the call' and tend to the child. Can't believe tomorrow marks the first day of MARCH already! Where is this year going? Hope you guys have a great Sunday evening!
