I'm playing along with Mahem and Moxie today. I hosted their wonderful mascot, Mona, over the summer and you can hear all about that on Friday. For today I will be talking about my summer vacation! I feel like I am in elementary school again, standing in front of the class with my carefully written out account of my summer fun. Please get an A, please get an A. Oops, sorry, old habits die hard. I always was an over-achiever!
I would talk about the weight I gained over vacation, but if you read yesterday's post, you'd see that I don't like ANYONE to talk about that...given my condition and all. So, I am going to talk about the person on my trip that saved the day instead!!
We went on a very impromptu (read: decided early Thursday morning, left our house 5 hours later) road trip from little Rhody (RI to you and me) to Montreal, Canada. I am a planner. My hubby is not. The idea of this trip was stressful to me, but I rolled with it (much to my hubby's and my own surprise). I do, however, have a mind like a steel trap and recalled that a wonderful bloggy friend, who just happens to be an amazing photographer, lives in Canada. She mentioned once that if we were ever in Montreal she'd do a photo shoot for us. It's not like we live close or anything. Poor girl probably thought she was safe in sayin' that! What are the odds that we would just up and road trip 8 hours to that very destination?? Well, I emailed her before we left calling her out on her promise. With only a day and a half notice, she drove the 2 hours to Montreal and took the most amazing family/maternity pictures a girl could ever ask for. Not only was she amazing behind the camera, but she is the sweetest and coolest chick I have met in ages! I wish we lived closer so we could hang out!
She truly saved the day. I got to have a tiny plan built in to the craziness of an unplanned trip. We got amazing pictures. Natey loved her to bits! I made a new friend. Thanks Baby Mama for making the whole trip for me! I'm serious, you really did.
