“No Mom Talk Monday” Pilot

momtalkbutton

First of all, I want welcome you to the BRAND NEW, very first ‘edition’ of No Mom Talk Monday. If you didn’t read my introductory post about this new meme on Friday, then allow me to go over the very simple and very basic rules. You can talk about anything. Anything in this great, big, wide world EXCEPT motherhood or your children.

I know that to some it may sound harsh, and that’s ok. If you don’t want to post about anything other than your children, then maybe this meme isn’t for you. My goal through this weekly project is to encourage us moms [and women in general] to take time out every week to get back to who we were {and still are} before we were mothers. There are women with passions and desires and dreams inside of all of us that tend to get pushed to the back and thrown to the sidelines as we go about our lives taking care of our husbands and children. Aside from the no kid/mom talk rule, you can say or write whatever you wish. Don’t think there is any kind of theme to this, because their isn’t. Feel free to be yourself and ENJOY the few minutes you’ll get from this where you can just be YOU again! Without further ado, I give you my first {Miscellaneous} No Mom Talk Monday Post:

_________________________________________________________

{ONE} We are anticipating getting our orders for our new Station within the next 2-3 weeks at the latest [we hope…] I am really excited to find out where God is going to send us next. I’m planning on going back to school in January, so I’m eager to get the ball rolling with where we are going to live, picking out a house, getting ready to go back to school, etc. It’s an exciting time, but I’m waiting on the ‘storm’ to hit and everything to start rolling at once.

{TWO} I think that I have decided to get my major in Graphic Design and Business Advertising. I have the fullest intentions of taking photography classes while I’m in school, but I want to make sure that I have something to fall back on. A Bachelors Degree in Photography won’t do me much good if the market for photographers is low. I plan to pursue photography professionally-set up a business and whatnot once we move-but I want to be able to do a lot of the other things that go along with photography myself; without having to pay someone else for it. Meaning, I want to get my degree in Graphic Design so I can do up my OWN logo and marketing material, without paying someone else. I want to know how to market and advertising my OWN business without having to hire someone to do that for me too.

{THREE} I am guest posting on Thursday & Friday over at From Here to Eternity. Jhen is having this super fun series on Love Stories and mine & hubby’s story is up those two days. YES, I’m taking up two days. Could be because I have so much to say and don’t to leave anything out, resulting in an uber-long post that no one would want to read in one sitting. OR it could be because I’ve had on  my heart to share the trials that my husband and I went through our first year or so of marriage with others, so that they can see that God can turn everything into something beautiful. If you want to know more about what I’m referring to then I guess you’ll just have to go visit Jhen to find out.   :-)

{FOUR} I successfully managed to put together my media kit this past week. It took ALL day to get it done, but I am VERY excited with how it turned out. Now just to get some businesses who want to advertise here.

{FIVE} I am working on a SPECIAL post to go up later this week targeted at all of you lurkers out there who love to read my blog but don’t like to comments. I know you are out there and I would LOVE to get to know you!! Keep your eyes peeled for a post. :-)

{SIX} I am waaaaay excited about Fall being among us. Our forecast this week is glorious. We’re looking at overcast skies with temperatures in the low 80’s through the day and the upper 50’s/low 60’s at night. The leaves around here are starting to fall off the trees and turn those beautiful shades of red and yellow and orange. See?

Day24-28 079
Let’s not forget that football season is also in full swing {Roll Tide…by the way.} And we are gearing up for Halloween and Harvest Festivals. It also means that we are almost less than 80 Days away from Hubby’s Graduation. I. am. excited.

{SEVEN} The Photography gig is going pretty well for me right now. I am heading down to Tampa in a few weeks to shoot a Military Retirement Ceremony & some family portraits. I have a shoot with my friend Mandi planned for one weekend in October; and an Engagement Session Scheduled for Halloween Day. There is also a photography contest at the local fair this year and I plan on entering several of my prints. Not sure which ones yet, but I’m excited to be able to participate this year. Here is one of the black and white prints I’m thinking of entering. It’s one of my absolute favorites.

365-Day 2 026

That’s all for my post today. The linky for No Mom Talk will be up until Wednesday night. Don’t feel that you have to get it up today. I understand that there are other memes and things going on. I will just be excited that you play.  :-) The button is in the right sidebar! Hope to ‘see’ you guys this week!
