{giddy up giddy up giddy up - it's grand!}

...just holding your hand...

Anyone know that song?  I grew up marching around my Nani's house to that song the day after Thanksgiving every year.  We would all trim the tree and then all of the grandkids would march around the house, taking turns leading the way, my Nani smiling from ear to ear clapping the entire time as she marched along with us.  Those are some of my fondest memories.  

I LOVE that football season is coming.... I LOVE that that means fall is upon us and Christmas is just around the corner.  The thought of a Christmas tree in my living room and hiding in my bedroom wrapping packages.  The smells that always are coming from the kitchen...  The lights...  I CANNOT WAIT!

There are things that need to be checked off of the list between now and then...  I am a list maker - I make lists - LOTS of lists - it is genetic.  LOL

I can help you with your list!!!  That one item on there, you know the one, the one that has call Lindsay to schedule our session?  LOL  Well, I FINALLY have my act - eh hem - schedule together!!! ;0)

Birthdays and Back to School!

This year, my daughter's birthday happened to fall on the day BEFORE school started!  I had a hard time thinking of having a party RIGHT before school started, (i mean that is a crazy time!) but we decided to run with it and it was SO much fun!!!

I mean, seriously, what 9 year old wouldn't love to come down the stairs and see a hummer super stretch limo waiting for them and their best girl friends?!??!!  ;0)  
This was taken after she had calmed down!!!

She had no idea where we were going!  She had so much fun and I just love her expression.
Then the first day of school came!
There is quite a sense of accomplishment to have 1/2 of your kids out the door by 8 am!!!  ...but oh how I miss them being home!!!
And perhaps the craziest part of my weekend!  There is a new Moore!  Meet Lulu - the birthday kitty!
Prepare for a renegade of sorts on the blog!!!  Time to get some of these sessions up here!

And for those of you who have emailed, and anyone else waiting, the holiday schedule will be posted by tomorrow evening!  I have been waiting to see when *kind of a big thing* would be finished, and it is just a day away from being done, so big news is on the horizon!

Peace, Love and Fabulous!

{i think i can... i think i can}

I feel quite like the little engine these days.  The hill is quite steep at the moment... in fact it is much more like a mountain.  BUT goodness gracious I KNOW I can get to the top!  (you know though, it doesn't hurt, even when you know you can do something, to still keep chanting in your head that you really do think you can do it!  LOL)

The mountain in front of me is filled with editing, book designs, orders, card designs, shooting, editing, back to school shopping, shed building (don't ask), did I say editing?  Oh yeah - and a HUGE project smack dab in the middle of it all that I cannot reveal just yet.  It is SO BIG and I am SO EXCITED but it is going to have to be announced in due time.  It just happens to be one of the biggest, most fabulous things that has ever happened to Fabulous Occasions!!!  So, yeah, I think it is safe to say it's no hill I'm climbin!

BUT that is OK!  In fact it is better than ok, it is fabulous!  I am incredibly blessed with amazing clients, a bigger than life supportive husband, a support system that could hold up a sky scraper, and 4 babies who don't care if my to do list gets done or not - they love me "past the sky" - so all is good!

Needless to say, if you are waiting on me, just give me a bit more time - I'm getting there!

Here are 2 cuties to share!

This little guy is such the little ladies man!  He is always a joy to get to work with!
and new baby sister...  this image is just - well - i big puffy heart this image!!!  :0)
look at her posing already for me!  LOL  love it!
Ok so I promise to dig deep and charge ahead!  And keep checking back with me!  It looks like I will be able to share some big news by the middle of September.  :0)

peace, love and fabulous

{...on channel 2  ...with scooby doo}

Super mega bonus cool points if you figured that out!  LOL

So, I am off on a whirlwind weekend with casting calls in the morning (holy cow I am pumped about that!) then off to New Braunfels to shoot a fabulous birthday party - then to San Antonio to celebrate none other than my own birthday!  WOOHOO!!!  Any reason to eat cake is a fabulous one - and when you are the one who gets to make a wish that is even better!  I know just what I am wishing for this year...  and it would put me over the moon if it came true!  We shall see now won't we!?!?!  You know what they say about wishes, so I mustn't tell!

So I will be a bit out of pocket this weekend, and will return calls and emails when I return on Tuesday.

I dreamt that I would be caught up before tomorrow came, but alas, I am not.  Maybe being one year older will be what I need to kick it in gear!  Have I told you about my 14 week goal yet?  Hmmmm  I don't think I have... I must share it!  Next time...

Have a wonderful, fabulous weekend!!!

and now... i leave you with sprinkly icing goodness!
peace, love and fabulous
{Enough Distractions!}
Because I cannot stand the thought that the top two posts right now contain not one Fabulous image...  that must be remedied!

I must get to bed, so I am short on words tonight... Here are 2 absolutely BEAUTIFUL sisters...  

oh my!  black and white!  i have been on such a color kick lately but i do love love love this in black and white...
oh my goodness she is just so yummy...  what a doll she is in her bow and little pearl bracelet.. :0)
i really really adore this shot - LOOK at all of her gorgeous hair!!!  
and stunning big sister!  wowzers...
hee hee hee!  peek a boo!

On that note...
Peace, Love and Fabulous!

what is a wordle you ask?  i went to wordle.net and entered in my blog and it randomly pulled words from it to create this:

a fun little distraction :0)
{Peace, Love and Fabulous}

So... you noticed the new header, eh?  I thought I would make one more post tonight, um, this morning, just in case that Edouard gets all crazy and takes out our power.  (and for those of you who don't pay attention to the things happening around us - aka moms like me who never get to turn on the news because nick or noggin or one of those other little people stations are on - Edouard is a tropical storm, not some crazy guy coming to turn off our power LOL)  
Ok that was random...

No seriously, while we were in Whistler I saw this shirt and it said "Peace, Love and Models" and I thought to myself, that is a fun shirt... but then like mid thought I had this super fabulous, light bulb going off, crazy smile drenching moment!  I turned to Jeremy and immediately told him...  Peace, Love and Fabulous!

I cannot even begin to tell you how 'me' that statement is, and how my business, in my mind, totally - to a T - is represented by that statement.  

SO.....  I hope you like it.  I love it.  It is Fabulous!


{2 good + 2 be = 4 gotten}

Do you remember your first best friends?  The ones that you could tell all of your secrets to and giggle with and play all day and have glorious fights with and then make up and forget you were ever really upset that they wanted to take out your Rainbow Brite's ever so lovely high pony tail?  eh hem, well maybe not that last part, but you get my drift, right?  Best friends are GOLDEN ~  they are true treasures in life that we must not ever take for granted.  

When I moved to Kingwood, almost 7 years ago, my daughter took a gymnastics class.  The first day I sat next to this super sweet girl who had a little girl my daughter's age and a baby in a carrier, just like me!  Fast forward 7 years later and I realize that that one day was golden.  It was a day in my history that will always and forever be important.  Our families have grown together, played together, they love each other.  What started out as a friendship has grown into an extended family - and that is glorious.

I want to share with you some of my favorite people...  some of our best friends  

these 2 were the babies... now look at them
cute cute cute!!!
this little girl is the sweetest ever!
i love this 
i really love this
oh my gosh this makes me smile!  who knows...  maybe we will TRULY be family one day.  These 2 are pretty cute together!  ;0)
i love how he has his hands here - a bit awkward like he doesn't really know what to do with them, but absolutely perfect at the same time
his expression here cracks me up
super cute!
stunning! *sigh*
oh this makes me a bit sad... they look so grown up here
but then this will make me laugh, so all is good!
love the texture!
this is SO sweet...
look at those eyes...  absolutely beautiful
So go call one of your best friends and let them know one thing you appreciate about them.  It will make their day!

{the whole enchilada}

I thought it would be fun to share a full session!  I am knee deep in editing and catching up - ok so maybe it is up to my waist already, but I wanted to post something for all of you to enjoy, so what better than one of my favorite family sessions!  

This family was so much fun.  The boys were absolutely the sweetest little guys and just truly truly loved each other.  They made my job super easy and we got to do a lot of fun stuff!

You will notice a little bit of a different feel to some of my stuff lately.  I am loving all sorts of different textures and vintage fabulousity!  

I am about to bust with all of the things that are happening, but I just cannot share yet.  That is terribly mean to do, I know, but don't think of it as being mean, (i am really not mean!)  just know that I am promising really really exciting fabulous things that are about to start happening - both on the web and in person!  AND with all of those things are going to come announcements that will be posted on here first, including birthday deals, anniversary specials, etc.  This November is my 3rd Fabulous Birthday!  And, trust me, I am doing it UP!!!!!  :0)

On to the stars of this show....  enjoy!

Stay tuned!
