pardon me as i
and then fall in love all over again.

lately been feelin' in a funk.
even now.
i hate when in my most creative wee hours i find myself...
not so creative.
it's an artists nightmare.
hit your head against the wall...sigh...chin in the palm of your hand kind of nightmare...

i am aloud to blaaaaah on this blog.
it is mine.
right? right.

big girls don't cry. they date. sooooo.....

saturday i had a date with inspiration.
you know the rest of the story if we are fb friends.
if not, it goes like this:

dear inspiration,
we had a date today at 3pm. we are now going steady. we rock.

yes. it's now sunday.
a good day.
a sunday kind of love day.

so feel the love as i share with you this lil sneak peek, hot off the press, get ya outta that funk, what funk, game on, let's do this, omg, these images rock, can't wait to share the rest, i'm lovin' this,
who the heck is miss bliss anyhoo,
they haven't even hit the website yet...but me and inspiration are going steady.
{after one date}

ok, back to me-

who's in a funk?

sunday fb status reads:
i'll tell my own love story.

title: love story

you are my love.
you are my inspiration.
you make me wanna be better.
i deserve better.
you take me there. physically. emotionally. spiritually.
you encourage me.
you make me wanna pick up this lens and do great things.
for me. for us. for our family.
thank you.
i will tell our love story.
i love you.
the end.

in a funk- no more.
i have the key-
i {heart} my lens.

my funk-key-heart is full.

"bert-day pawty"...

the rockstar has arrived.
fashionably late.
no time to chat-
these tokens are burnin' a hole in his pocket.

game on.

jackpots later...
tickets galore.
he's stoked.


he goes for the glider, flyer, bullet, throw-it-at something toy.


they rock.

she gets that from her mama.
dylan on the other hand- is thinking,
and i quote from the rockstar himself,
"no time for a lady"
outta the mouths of babes.
{that's a whole 'nother blog post}

highlight #1 for mama:

tearing open the gifts i remind him to open the cards first to see who actually gifted the gift...
they listen.
he opens the card first.
leans over to his best bud and says,
"what does it say?"
andrew replies,
"i don't know i can't read!"
dylan shrugs his shoulders,
"i can't either!"

i just about fell over.
it was that funny.
hilarious really.

and then-
highlight #2 for mama:

the one, the only-
"nose poke"

first off-
let's make this clear.
dylan is officially smitten.

walks over
puts his arm around her
and with that nifty little "nose poker"
right in the nose.

as to say...
here take this-
you rock and i'm smitten!

mama will have to work with him on his approach...

highlight of the day...

he is officially 5.
the rock'd "bert-day pawty" sealed that deal.

i think he is pretty awesome.
nothing you don't already know.

nose poke!

rock'd it!

let it be known-
right here. right now.

it is his birthday so i am extra excited.
and this music has me a fired up!
...has me dancin' like a mama shouldn't-
{omg! i got mad jokes!!}
or just craving the treadmill...
but regardless of any dance moves or treadmill beats...


so after a date with the treadmill this morning,
me and my freshly blown out hair stroll into
"party city" -
dylan and his homies
are expecting a "big" surprise today in class.


it must be perfect.
not edible

it must rock.

he rocks.
it must be him.

i stood there and daydreamed for probably 20 mins...
what to do
what not to do

snap out of it already!

it will be perfect
it will all work out as it should.


ok- he is 5-
big deal but not this complicated.

just like that.
good news.

it seriously overwhelmed me.

i'll take these and hand full of balloons
that will perfectly match his retro tee.

"are you ready to check out m'am?"
"why, yes i am. thank you."

this is gonna rock.

and it did not just rock.
it rocked my whole soul.

rockstar sunglasses.
who'da thought?

...the excitement continues as the amazing light dims but the party continues.

and so i take try to take off my
"photog hat" off
and put my "mama hat" on-
let's be honest.
you always want the best for your kiddos
including AMAZING pictures.
but despite the "hat"
bad light is bad light.

i have no idea why i feel the need to explain this.
{i'm rambling}
but it bothers me.

so please forgive the lack of light-
but appreciate the most amazing moments of this
rockstar's 5th "bert-day!"


ps. i heard some rockstars slept with theirs on...
