A baseball bat and an oversized helmet.
I remember it as if it was yesterday...
I stepped up to the plate.
I swung, and I missed.
I missed HORRIBLY.
As in, the oversized helmet came down over my eyes and my entire body spun in a circle.
But here's the thing... I was always good at sports! I was always one of the first girls to be picked when we'd choose teams in PE. I loved it so much that I majored in it in college!
But for some reason that day, I was not on my game. I failed miserable. I missed.
The next time I was up to bat, I had even more determination and my overly competitive nature was sitting on my shoulder like the little devil telling me I had better hit it this time.
And I did. I whacked that ball so hard that it hurt my hands. It sailed over the heads of the girls who were hiding in the outfield, and I quickly ran around the bases. I hit it!
Today I am officially introducing "Hits and Misses". It's a popular concept amongst bloggers... and I'm jumping on the bandwagon :) This is my chance to share with you all of the things that are making my adrenaline rush at the moment... and a couple of things that have failed miserably.
1. Cadbury Eggs.
Typically I'm not a big sweets eater (with the exception of cookies!)... but I could eat 10 Cadbury Eggs a day! They are soooo yummie! And even more so because they only come around once a year!2. Hard Candy Lip gloss in "girl next door"
I have a hard time finding lip gloss I love, but this I LOVE! The color is perfect, and it goes with everything! I have literally used up 2 tubes in the last 2 months! I dont know if I've ever used up a whole tube of lip gloss before.
3. Smugmug Pro
I am sooo excited to be using this! I've played around with different options for a while now for my online proofing and ordering, but I adore smugmug. It's easy to use and the customer service is awesome!4. Green Wedding Shoes
I loooove me some blogs! I could probably spend the better portion of an entire day looking through blogs... and especially wedding planning and photography blogs. I came accross the Green Wedding Shoes blog not long ago and I'm hooked!
5. The [b] school
I've heard so much about Becker's photographer school, but I hadn't jumped on board entirely. I'd followed him (and the [b] school) on twitter, and became a fan on facebook, but I hadn't subscribed. Until today. I can't wait for all the knowledge I know I'm going to get.6. Live in the Name of Love
This is a blog written by my good friend Bianca and I ADORE it. I look forward to reading it everyday! It always encourages me, uplifts me and challenges me. She rocks! Check it out and leave her a comment!
1. Oversized helmets in high school PE.
Ug... I'm goraning over them already!
3. Slow computers
Maybe it's just that I'm trying to do too much at one time. What can I say, I'm a multitasker :)
And since pictures are so fun... here's one from my recent shoot with my friend Angela:
