Monday, I had a photo shoot gig in the morning, and it was also Jason and I’s 3 year anniversary. It’s kind of crazy how fast it’s all gone by…
Anyhow, I somehow managed to oversleep and had to speedily get ready to go and rush out the door. Oh, and the coffee shop downstairs closed down (I know right?!), so I had to speed-walk 3 blocks to the closest coffee stand so I could at least be somewhat coherent by the time I got to the photo shoot.
Luckily, I was only a few minutes late, and the rest of the shoot went really well. I was super happy with the makeup I did and got to work with some great people too.
After getting home, Jason was waiting for me and we tried to decide what to do for the evening (romantic right?). Being broke as we were, we couldn’t really do anything too exciting but decided to go out to get some Thai food at a place we went to on one of our first few dates.
Although it was a bit of a rainy, cold night, it was still a nice evening. It was also nice to get a little time with Jason as well, I don’t think we get opportunities like that nearly as often as we’d like.
Looks like Sofie had a good day with my parents too, she’s looking great for her photo!
Last Sunday, after spending the morning and afternoon with my parents I made my way back home to Seattle.
Sofie stayed behind with my parents and I believe my dad spent the rest of the afternoon watching football with her and teaching her how to say “touch-down”.
As much as I’m not really a sports fan, I still think it’s pretty cute.
I hope she doesn’t grow up to be a football fan because I really won’t know what to do with her…
Took this photo of her before leaving for home, she was actually pretty good about it that time.
Last Saturday, Sofie and I headed out to Poulsbo to visit my parents for a bit, and drop Sofie off for a few days as I had some work lined up for the next week. I also had a bunch of laundry to do, and seeing that I had to pay for laundry at our apartment, I saw it as an opportunity to do save a little money too…
We left the house in the early afternoon and caught the ferry over. Sofie loves riding the boat, a little too much, sometimes.
After getting to my parents I spent the rest of the day doing laundry and hanging out.
It was nice getting to visit with my parents too, as I hadn’t done that in a while.
Here’s a pick I snapped of Sofie before we headed out for the day, not looking too happy, but at least she got to take her doggie backpack along with her for the trip.
Phew! What a crazy week it has been… and yes, you will hear about it, and yes, it’s finally a good excuse for why I’m behind. Haha.
But let’s recap from where we left off…
Last Friday… it was the third day of doing makeup for the photo shoot series I was working on before we got a bit of a break, so Sofie went over to her grandma’s again.
This time, we drove out to Eastern Washington to a crazy cool solar and wind farm. We had two models to style that day, so it was even more hectic, but fun.
It was so cold and windy, I’m glad I got to stay in the trailer most of the time!
I carpooled with one of the models, so after getting back, I picked up Sofie and headed home to relax. After Sofie crashed, I enjoyed some late night pizza and a nigh cap with Jason before fading out myself.
It was a super long, but productive week, and I was looking forward to spending the weekend with Sofie!
Here she is after we got home from picking her up! Silly girl.
I had expected to have a good day off today, but last night a last minute job called in and needing the money, I agreed to help out. So I went off late this morning to do a quick makeup and hair gig and came back later this afternoon to hang out and get some work done at home for the rest of the day. Sofie spent the morning with her dad while I was gone and once I got back, she conveniently napped and I was able to get some work done thankfully!
After her nap, Sofie, Jason and I went out for a quick early evening walk around the neighborhood to make a stop at the bank and pick up a few extras for dinner (spaghetti).
Sofie was being a bit of a cranky pants this evening, so I tried getting her to bed early. Not really too successful with that, but she eventually succumbed to sleep…
Here she is from early today, always with the goofy faces!
Wednesday was day 2 of the photo shoot series for me. So after dropping off Sofie at her grandma’s again in the morning, this time, we went out to an old abandoned (would have been) nuclear power plant down in Satsop, another “middle-of-nowhere” location, but so very very cool. Don’t worry, there wasn’t any nuclear activity or radiation as the plant never actually got up and running.
Once these photos are up and edited from the photographer, I’ll be sure to share on my other makeup and beauty blog!
This was another really fun shoot for me, and I feel like I’m getting a lot of great practice doing hair and makeup for more creative things. As much as I like to do bridal, what I REALLY love is fashion!
We didn’t end up going as late as the last shoot, but we still ran a little behind. I came back in the early evening to pick up Sofie again and go home. I was so tired, as I was giving Sofie a bottle to go to sleep, I totally crashed with her!
Took this photo of Sofie before leaving her grandma’s. Her little squinty eyes are always so funny.
