Remember these? It’s been too long and my list of lings is overflowing once again.
I know I have a lot of pregnant girls reading. I came across this birth plan by Rixa and it’s my favorite ever. It’s something about that first plan, that’s so simple and straightforward.
I think I didn’t link to this here yet, only on my Formspring. The LDS Church is anti-pornography, and I am as well, and this is one of those rare situations where a woman is able to write publicly about her story of finding out about a pornography addiction and her decision to stay with her husband. When Pornography Hits Home. A few weeks ago our bishop met with the men in a special meeting where he talked about pornography and told them to repent and get things taken care of. He is meeting with the women this week and I hope he is talking about the same thing. It bothers me that the Church so far only focuses on men, acting as though women have no addictions, and that men’s pornography problems don’t involve them. It involves us. It involves us very much!
I am not a fan of Babywise. Here is a very good reason to stay away.
Kelli Nicole sent me this video a long time ago. Watching it makes me really happy.
Avoiding Farmer’s Market Scams
It’s almost Farmer’s Market time here in Chicago once again! I hope some of you have never been to one before will think about finding one near you to visit. I know some people are nervous about having an experience like Mandy, showing up and buying a bunch of stuff that someone bought at the grocery store that morning and then marked up by 200% while lying and saying it’s organic, but I think if you use a few of the tips in this article you’ll be able to find some honest-to-goodness organic farmers out to sell the lettuce and tomatoes they harvested that very morning. The “check to see if it’s all uniform” tip is my favorite one. And paying attention to whether one stand has something no one else does (like tomatoes, when no one else has tomatoes) because that is a good indication that they didn’t come from the area.
Utah Portrait Locations
If you’re in Utah I’m jealous of you. Though it’s no longer updated, this blog is a great resource.
Yellow Pages Opt-Out
How is this still a viable business? I have no idea. But if you haven’t opted out already you should do so.
7 Things You Really Don’t Need To Take A Photo Of
Haha, I have broken every one of these “rules”. 🙂
Wedding Photography Done In The Worst Way Possible
Read them both and then when your friend says she’s going to “hire this one girl” remind her why that is a very bad, bad idea. Hire someone who knows what they are doing, has back up equipment, has networked with other photographers in the area that they can count on in case of emergency.
T1 and his “lovey”
I’m not sure if this qualifies as an actual lovey, since most kids seem to need theirs and would cry and cry if they didn’t have it, which doesn’t describe T1. But lately he’s been a little obsessed with this soft rag, often doing what you see pictured in the second photo below. He particularly likes it if I mimic him and shove the rag in my mouth as well.
My favorite is when he carries it around in his mouth hands-free, like a dog.
