A Little Cranky Update!

Posted by: Maggie

Hi Friends!

I meant to write you some fun posts yesterday and today, but I’m not perfect alright! I’m busy entertaining house guests, being a lawyer with a court hearing this week, while also being a photographer booking new clients and planning shoots for next week! So get off my back internet! I hear you complaining, and I’m telling you to knock it off!

So, anyways, instead of actually writing what I was planning for yesterday and today I thought I’d just give you a little update on what we’re up to this summer!

  • I’ve just completed an AMAZING Online Boudoir Photography Workshop from my favorite photographer in the whole world Christa Meola!
  • Eleanor has been enjoying her preschool summer program, which features weekly visitors including the Bubble Man, a Reptile Handler, and the Library Fairy, and a water play day once a week! I wish I was in a preschool summer program!
  • My best friend Andrew turned 30, so I took him out for Mexican food, and his wife Amy bought him an awesome new tattoo, can’t wait to see it in person and for Amy to blog about it!
  • Josh’s best friend Brian came to stays with us for sort of a week. He arrived last Tuesday and left this Tuesday night, but left us for the weekend to be in a friend’s wedding in San Francisco. So, we didn’t have nearly enough Brian time. Although his stories about Texas and teaching college kids are pretty amazing so we forgive him.
  • While Brian was here we took him to see the new Dinosaur exhibit at the Natural History Museum, had drinks with Andrew, went to visit UCLA, had dinner in Westwood with an old friend from high school plus Diddy Riese Cookies, and had a day at the beach, followed by dinner party with my friend and frequent cranky commenter Megan! It was a pretty full, although far too short, visit. There will be posts to come about various portions of the visit.
  • Josh and I will be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary this weekend with a night at the Farmer’s Daughter in West Hollywood. Can’t wait! A night without a child! We are going to watch so much tv!
  • Eleanor will be at home with Uncle Elliott. She’s pretty excited about that.
  • I’ve got a Boudoir Party shoot with three lovely ladies next week! I am beyond excited!
  • AND I’ve got a wedding and a baby shower coming up this month.

So, you know, pretty busy over here. How bout you guys? Having a fun summer?

Things You Might Not Know About Maggie

Posted by: Maggie

Since I’m sharing, this week, I thought I’d share some more entertaining personal facts about myself.

  • I love music, but am completely tone deaf. I took a test online once and did as well as if I had just guessed instead of listening to the tones.
  • I have a crazy eclectic taste in music, I’ll listen to almost any genre but country. I love hip hop and indie, jazz and classic rock. Zydeco you guys, zydeco.
  • I am a HORRIBLE singer, per the tone deafness, but I love to sing, and do so at the top of my lungs when I’m alone at home or in the car. I get looks when I’m driving and singing. It’s okay, I’m just loving life!
  • In high school I was first kinda boho, then gothic, then punk rock, always a little rebel. My hair has been every color imaginable. I’ll share photos someday.
  • I cry in movies, and tv shows, and at weddings. I really don’t seem like I’d be the sappy sentimental type, but I completely am.
  • I’ve always had a thing for nerds and wished I was one. I was always too cool, but I secretly wanted the hang out with the smart nerdy kids in high school.
  • I have a serious thing for Jewish guys (good thing I married one!) . I really can’t explain it, maybe too many Woody Allen movies when I was a kid. My biggest celebrity crushes are David Krumholtz and Adrien Brody.
  • I love a challenge of any kind (probably the real reason I went to law school), sometimes I think I make my life difficult on purpose just for the challenge of it.
  • Josh and Eleanor are the only people I let see me without makeup on.
  • I prefer ice cream to almost any other food.
  • I can’t work unless the room I’m in is clean.
  • I love working at home alone. I love being alone.

I’m sure there are plenty more of these for me to share, I’ll work on a Part Two soon!

Feel free to share your fun facts about yourself in the comments!
