Nissan Truck

This morning as I was driving in to work I figured hey, I've been good with my diet and exercise for the last 2 weeks, and I was really early, so I decided to stop at Von's for a bagel. (I got light cream cheese - and their bagels are made fresh daily, they are addictive!)

So, as I was standing in the checkout line, there was a man in line ahead of me he must have been in his 80s who was quite chatty with the girl working at the register (maybe he has a crush). Anyway, he started in quite adamantly about how "You young people appreciate those Japanese cars you drive you know what tomorrow is?"... he continued for another minute on a slightly racist tirade against the Japanese people because the checker and girl who was bagging didn't know what tomorrow was but was only slightly appeased when I whispered Pearl Harbor to the checker. Continued still another minute and finally finished writing his check (I finally have an appreciation for those stupid VISA commercials that are indoctrinating us to use our VISA check cards!)

The girl was VERY quick with me so she could go on a break and I was able to see the man loading his car with his groceries, well I should say his truck his NISSAN truck! priceless!

sorry about the rant

my husband thinks that i am just going to complain on this site, so forgive the previous post -

i added a blog for some of my photos, just so that i could have a sort of online portfolio for others to view. i just got fired for a wedding shoot that i was supposed to do in december, i think they just didn't want to pay but that is okay. the money would have been nice but it is a stressful thing shooting weddings!


so, as many of you know - i hate myself right now for gaining so much weight in the past 2 years. but if one more person comes up to me and either asks if i am pregnant or worse (as happened today at church) tells me i look pregnant! i am going to come all kind of unspooled on them!

i had an older sister who has recently moved back to the ward for the 3rd time since they got back tell me i look pregnant even though she knows i am not (which is more worse than before!) and then proceeds to say how i glow. if i was glowing before from happiness it has since switched to anger at how rude she is for not only saying it, but persisting in her efforts to find me out to tell me how incredibly fat i am! i think she should just come up and say "wow ann, you really are packing on the pounds! it amazes me how adept you are at gaining weight! i have never known anyone who could do it as well as you can!"

dru said that the next time she mentions it i should ask if she is taking etiquette lessons. i don't think i have the guts for that!

we're back!

the cruise was a good time!

we went horseback riding on the beach in Cabo and saw 'La Bufadora' in Ensenada. Jake has decided that he needs a horse and we found that no matter where he is - Kyle will manage to add to the harem of girls who are attracted to him.

i walked down the street to the resale shop on my lunch break to find a black skirt to wear on the cruise we are leaving for on saturday and they didn't have a single one!
i did manage to find some jeans that are 7's and they actually looked good (if anything can right now) on me. but they were severely distressed and i thought it would look like i was trying way too hard to be cool. plus as far as i know those are so last season! anyway, i just needed to vent about how there are no black skirts to be had anywhere - at least at Macy's, Target, or ACT II. and i hate myself for getting so fat again and i plan on really hitting the diet/exercise hard when we get back from the cruise, but i am so worried about being judged for how fat i am while we are there cruzin'.

another wedding

every time i get asked to photograph another wedding, i say this is the last time. so, here it is the last time again....

each time though i get a shot that is unexpected and that the bride and groom may not like, but i love -

then i go and take a shot that i have seen someone else do and i hate it and think the bride and groom will like it -

soooo embarrassing

Since Katie told her diarrhea story I am going to totally embarrass myself tonight. This is by no means my most embarrassing moment, but it ranks.

Let me start by saying are all of my friends crazy? Yesterday a lady who works down the hall came into our office and said "Ann, you have to do something about your roots!" Now, I knew that they were bad, and I was getting more and more embarrassed by them, but I figured that since none of my friends had said anything, maybe it wasn't as bad as I thought it was - WRONG! Here you go, and I know the lighting sucks, but......


As I told Justyn's sister Erin (who did a great job on my hair by the way) If my friends don't tell me that my hair looks like crap, who I ask you is going to tell me when I have a booger hanging out of my nose?
Well wouldn't you know that this morning as I was standing over the desk of my boss (who really doesn't act like a boss) I rubbed my nose and yes it happened a small hard booger fell down on his desk! I know he saw it and was surprisingly nice enough not to mention it! He did start wiping his own nose, and looked away the rest of the time I was in there as I tried to discreetly brush it off his desk with the papers I had in my hand. The whole rest of the day was spent with a kleenex in hand waiting for the rub. Yeah, life is good.

a teenage son

so, my oldest is 14. i remember being 14 and unfortunately he is a lot like his mom socially!

at the beginning of the week, we had 2 families at our house a lot because of the fires, and thursday morning after they left we woke to some creative sidewalk chalk art on the driveway. we thought it was just a bunch of thank yous because nothing screams "message from the davis family" like sidewalk chalk. then we read the messages. i <3>

Davis family sofa 2006, maybe someday I will put all of the Halloween photos together in order and make a fun scrapbook like my sister does!

Because there had to be something other than a big black screen, and my sister and I have been laughing so hard at the fact that I can't seem to stay logged in - and since it is so close to Halloween......Here you go from the Davis family sofa in 1997.
For anyone who doesn't know me - no, they are not all mine. Just the 2 on the top left.
