Five Guys & Guitar Hero

Last night we ventured over to my brother Mike's house. He then took us to get dinner at Five Guys. I haven't really indulged in a full fast food meal since having the baby and I have been craving fries for some time. After ordering our grub we proceeded to pig out. Let me tell you Five Guy burgers are good, but the fries are even better! I think I successfully satistied my fry craving for awhile, and when the next one comes along I now know were to go.
Oh, and we did play a little Guitar Hero. (Just because you can play a couple of musical instruments doesn't mean you can play Guitar Hero) I officially stink at being a pretend rock star...I don't think I would make a very good real rock star either.
Thanks for the fun night Mike and Kate.

Joyography Workshop

Why do I need to go to a photography workshop? Or more specifically why should I go to this workshop that will be taught by two AMAZING photographers.

Reason #1: My pictures don't ever do the event or people justice. I feel like I am so lucky to have such a great life and cute family and although my kids look great in photos they don't ever look as cute as they do in real life. I would love to learn how to capture the light in their eyes and the color around them that would make them look as amazing as they are.
Reason #2: I am a busy mom and although I have tried to do tutorials online and read the owner's manual to my camera I seem to get interupted everytime. I need a crash course.
Reason #3: I think it is important to log your journey and photography is a great way to tell your story. I know Marisa is a pro at telling a story with photo's and I just want to learn how she does it!

Reason #4: My sister just got a SLR for Christmas and she is already shooting better pictures than me--It would be nice to catch up, or one up her. :)
