We are bored...KINDA

Hi I am here.  I keep saying that but I really am not here!  Heres the low down on whats going on.  As you know we went to VA  a few weeks ago (I still have so many pics to post sorry).  A week after we got home Jason left for China...hes still there...and comes home Friday.  We have not stopped since he left.  We have gone to the pool at my parents almost every day. We have gone shopping or visited friends every evening.  For some reason I get really bored at home this time with him gone so we go places, lots of places.  We have spent probably too much money...but we are BORED and Bailey wanted to eat out a lot and buy lots of things! (haha thats for Jason if he reads this).  Anyways, Jason is home for three days and then leaves again for four days.  Are you still with me???  Then the day after he gets home again we leave for a whole week.  We are going to visit his Aunts and cousins for a family reunion for 2 days, then to the beach for 5 days, then to visit his Uncle and go to a Phillies game. 

So the point to the story is Jason is gone A LOT right now.  In about a month he will be in our house for about 9 or 10 whole days.  We are bored without him here.  When he went out of town before I was babysitting and always busy during the day.  Then in the evenings I was tired and we would do low key things. 

One more thing, Jason and my sister have talked me into trying to do photography professionally.  I really love taking pictures and have just taught myself what I know.  I have so much more to learn.  Well, I have my first paying customer next week.  To say I am nervous is an understatement.   Hopefully everything will go smoothly!! If you aren't friends with me on facebook here is a link to Kristi B Photography.  Check it out and "like" it!!

Sounds like you're trying to keep busy while he's away. Hope you're staying cool out there; it's a heat wave here.

Aww I'm sorry he's away so much. I'd get bored too!

Congrats on starting your own business! How exciting!!

That is one crazy schedule and some beautiful pictures!

I absolutely agree with them that you should get into professional photography, I always love your photos and your daughter is the perfect subject - she is so adorable and seems to take a perfect picture every time!

I know what you mean about getting bored! It's hard with a toddler! After a while playing at home just isn't fun any more - especially playing at home with the same toys all day!!! Chad has been taking Jordan to the water park and to Great America. They're actually at a movie right now! I'm feeling better now though so I'm thinking I can get out of the house with them this week...I just have to figure out the whole breastfeeding in public situation again which is not one of my favorite things to do...

I love your pictures!!!! You will do great!!! If your taking pics of kids, I used to work at The Picture People in the mall and they always had those long reach duster things so you can tickle the kids noses and then still move away and get a shot. Not sure if that would be helpful to you or not. AND, we just had pictures taken in the hospital with Daniel, it was awesome. That would be a great gig, taking pictures of newborns. They're pretty easy to shoot if you ask me. I'm not sure how much time you want to spend, but if you could go to your closest hospital and get some sort of agreement with them that would be would have to have time to be there every day or every other day at least to catch that might not work. Either way, you will do great!!!!!1
