Sofia 365: Day 149

Day 149: 8.7.12

Tuesday was definitely another day where I just took advantage of my day off and did almost absolutely nothing at all, other than watching Desperate Housewives re-runs on Netflix and rolling around the floor with Sofie. Despite my looking like a complete slob I still wanted Sofie to look cute, so I just stuck her in a dress that she hadn’t worn in a long time.

The weather had definitely cooled off a bit and the sun never really came out until later in the day, I couldn’t really complain though, the weather had been way too intensely hot the past few days and I certainly welcomed some shade.

Sofie got a chance to check out some of her new clothes that we had purchased the day before; she was definitely digging them!

I’m gonna throw in a two extra photos since we had a little mini-photoshoot together that afternoon, and because I think they’re super darn cute.
Sometimes I look at this blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl and I can’t believe she came out of me!

Enjoy!

New clothes baby!
Wild Sofie!

Sofia 365: Day 148

Day 148: 8.5.12

Sunday was certainly less hectic than the day before, but definitely no less hot! I was great that I got a chance to do a wedding over on my parent’s side at least once for this season. The weather was beautiful, albeit hot, and I got to help another bride get all beautiful and ready to go for her special day.

There’s definitely something to be said about my line of work, you get to be a part of some of the most intimate moments of a person’s life. It’s kind of a strange perspective, especially seeing so many different brides and how they handle their own day differently. It’s pretty interesting, and I’m thankful and lucky to be a part of these moments.

After I finished my job, I ran a few errands then came home for an early dinner. Veggie dogs and baked beans, not bad at all.

Poor Sofie was so tired because she hadn’t napped all day, she fell asleep at the table! After dinner, I got everything packed and ready to go and whisked Sofia away back home to our apartment and daddy.
We took this picture earlier in the day before we left, Sofie was playing in the pool while I was working and got changed once I got home. She insisted on holding the dog’s collars and clothes for the photo.

Sofia 365: Day 147

Day 147: 8.4.12

Saturday was a HOT, HOT day.

I had to get up early to drive to a wedding which was about an hour and a half away; even at 6 am it was still about 70 degrees. No joke.

I hardly realized the temperature change because I had been working inside with my bride and her bridesmaids all morning, but the instant I stepped outside of that air conditioned building the humidity and heat hit me like a brick wall. It was sweltering, all I could think about was hope that the bride wouldn’t melt in her dress! She did look absolutely fabulous though, if I say so myself!

Once I got back from my wedding I had to head straight to my studio to meet another bride for a trial session. I think I did pretty great with her as well.

Sofie kept cool in her pool at my parent’s house all day. Lucky her, wish I could have hopped in a pool!
Anyways, after that long, long day I still had to prepare to take a ferry over to my parent’s house for my wedding on Sunday because it was in Poulsbo.

You’d think that after I finished my trial session I would have been home free, but no, I somehow had managed to “lose” my car keys so I was stuck. After about an hour of freaking out, being hungry, thinking I had locked my keys in my trunk and calling Jason and having him bring out his spare keys to me, I still didn’t find my keys. They weren’t in my trunk, not in my car, not anywhere between where I had parked and my studio, which wasn’t very far at all… After some exasperation I checked inside my purse again.

(This is the part where I hit myself in the head, hard)

The keys had slipped into a pocket I didn’t even know had existed until that point, hence the whole not being able to find it part. I felt like an idiot, but all I really wanted to do was get to my parents home and sleep.

I caught the next ferry back over and finally got home around 10pm, from waking up at 5:30 am to going to bed around 11, I pulled a pretty long and eventful day.

I’m just at least glad that I could snuggle up next to Sofie at the end of it all.

Serious Face.

Sofia 365: Day 106

Day 106: 6.24.12

Alrighty, we’re all caught up for now!

Sunday was a slower day, but I still had another wedding to do, so didn’t get too much of a chance to sleep in. It was such a great day for a wedding too. Also, it was Pride weekend, I kind of wish I went to check it out for a bit, but there’s always next year!

After getting home I spent some time organizing the house (my work never stops!). I just don’t know how it ends up getting so messy sometimes, but I enjoy cleaning and organizing (totally ocd) so it isn’t necessarily something I do begrudgingly.

Here’s Sofie from Sunday, look at her in her cute summer clothes; purposely or not, my mom had her in perfect socks for Pride too! 🙂

Pride Socks!

Sofia 365: Day 105

Day 105: 6.23.12

Saturday was such a long day… I had a traditional Indian wedding to do that day, and since the ceremony started in the early morning, I was up by 2:30, yes AM, to get to the bride’s house by 3:30 to do her hair and makeup. I also had a hair trial that afternoon, then I came back in the evening to change the bride’s look for her evening ceremony. Besides a 1 hour nap in-between clients in the morning, I probably ended up being awake for close to 22 hours that day.

Needless to say, I won’t be doing that again anytime soon. Though I will say, it was worth it to get the unique experience to work on such a special wedding and do something a little out of my comfort zone. (Tune in to my Beauty Blog for updates and photos from that wedding, coming soon!).

Here’s Sofie’s photo from my parent’s house on Saturday. What a little goof ball.

On My Own!

Hey Guys!

A viewer recently requested that I start doing more personal blogs, so this is my little schpeel on that…
I’ve also had a very rare opportunity to get some time to myself, REAL time to myself, apart from the baby. So I wanted to share my feelings on that as well.
I’m sorry, I ramble.

Thanks for watching!
