Five Things Friday {#3}

Friday is finally here! And since it’s been awhile, like since last June, I decided it would be a good day to jump back on the Five Things Friday bandwagon. My Five Things Friday are usually a mix of my random thoughts, products I love and things I found amusing. So kick back and enjoy!

This adorable camera lens mug.

You know your a #photographer when…. You drink your coffee out of a camera lens travel mug.

I’ve been eyeballing this camera lens travel mug for a long time, and my fiance bought it for me a couple weeks ago. The deal was if he bought it, I couldn’t stop to get coffee anymore. That hasn’t exactly happened yet, mainly because I love iced coffee, but when I bring it work, it’s my go-to mug for coffee or tea. It will most definitely be making many appearances during photo shoots this year. Let’s just hope I don’t mistake it for one of my lenses! The snow. Let’s just talk about the snow for another quick second. Even though I don’t even want to think about it anymore. Boston is BURIED. Literally. Every storm is now discussed in feet. Not inches. In fact, we have a storm coming tomorrow night that could drop another foot or more on us. We already have over 6 feet on the ground. And this is just in a 2-3 week time span. We’ve gotten more snow in the last few weeks, then we usually do in an entire winter.  I’m hoping that our winter will essentially only be this like 4 week period of blizzards. And then miraculously spring will arrive in March and we will have 50 degree weather. Because we’re going to need it soon for all of the snow to go away!


The struggles of losing weight.
You guys. I hate trying to lose weight. I’m just putting it out there. But I hate more? How much weight can fluctuate. I usually weigh in once a week for Weight Watchers. But I decided to weigh myself yesterday just to see how things were going. I was psyched. Down just over a pound. I weighed in this morning, and I had gained 2 from the day before. SERIOUSLY? Not cool body. Not cool. Anyways. Weigh in days are now on Thursdays, since that’s when my lowest weigh in seems to be. But still. Ugh. Being a woman… am I right?


This girl just being an unbelievable inspiration.
Jamie Brewer, best known for American Horror Story, just rocked the runway at New York Fashion Week. Like utterly owned it. And while doing so, became the first model with down syndrome to do so. But I don’t look at her and see Down Syndrome. I look at her and see a woman is chasing her dreams and succeeding in an dog eat dog industry, and not caring what anyone thinks of her. She is truly an inspiration to ALL women. I mean look at her up there. She’s GLOWING. And her model walk. Owned it!

Check out this great video that fellow model Alanna Raben took during the pre-show. This girl just oozes confidence. You go Jamie!


The Buzzfeed Obama video.
I mean… we’ve all done some of these things. At least once. Right? I mean… we’ve all done some of these things. At least once. Right?


And a bonus…

The long weekend.
It’s President’s Day weekend! Which means we have the day off on Monday. Anyone else? Anyone doing anything fun? It looks like we will be snowed in. Again. Not cool. Guess I’ll be kicking back with a book and my heated blanket. It’s President’s Day weekend! Which means we have the day off on Monday. Anyone else? Anyone doing anything fun?

I’m jumping on the bandwagon of Five Things Friday!

So what am I loving this Friday?

 

    • ‘Rude’ by Magic – Seriously, this song is so catchy and fun, and it just makes me want to start dancing. I’ve never been a huge fan of reggae-type music, but there is just something about this song that I just love. I can listen to it on repeat and not get sick of it. Seriously – check it out.

 

  • Active’s RockMyRun app – I tried this for the first time yesterday during my W3D1 run. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know if it was going to be similar to Pandora and just have a bunch of songs in a row with a couple of commercials, or just a giant techno mix. Needless to say, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten through a run so fast (well, I guess in terms of the time flew by!) in my life. I chose the Active 5K Training Mix and it was 31 minutes of pure gloriousness. We had 80s music, today’s hits and even some songs I’ve never heard before, but all in remixed forms. The playlist never once stopped, and each song seamlessly flowed into the next. Honestly, if you need music to run, check it out. They have all sorts of playlists to choose from. And you can choose based on music taste or BPM. Definitely worth the download. Just make sure to download your playlist before you head out on your run. You need to have WiFi to do so.

 

  •  Spring WeatherFINALLY! After having the occasional 75 degree day, and the dropping back into the low 50’s, we are FINALLY getting some beautiful spring weather. High 60s today, 70s by weekend and 70s next week. THANK YOU MOTHER NATURE. It was like spring kept arriving, and promptly saying ‘Just Kidding!’ and reverting back to winter.
  • My Current ReadInto the Darkest Corner is seriously so good. I haven’t been able to put it down. Essentially, it bounces between 2004-2005 and 2007-2008, and a woman named Cathy who is in a bad relationship (abusive) and her recovery from OCD and Panic Attacks from said abuse in 2007-2008. I won’t give much away, except it’s just such a great book. Heartbreaking, and sad, but yet so happy and heartwarming at the same time. Sighhhh… just read it so I have someone to talk to about it :)
  • Editing lots and lots of horse photos – I’ve seriously been editing horses for two weeks non-stop and it’s amazing. I had the first round of the High Tail Acres Mini Sessions on May 18th along with the candids from my day at the barn, then horse show last weekend, and followed by more mini sessions tomorrow. If you didn’t know, I love horses. I’ve been riding literally almost my entire life, so photographing horses to me is heaven. (I love photographing people too!). Here is just one of the many from my photo Facebook page.10359522_529067730537045_8071509094974767088_n

I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!!
