A Skinny Girls Best Friend

DSC_3903
In 2 days time, I’m heading to Vegas for the annual Photographers convention. 14,000 photographers will converge on spot. The thought of that many camera people and camera jargon is enough to terrify anyone…

However, contrary to what one might suppose, I am not fearful of the oncoming torrent of camera info and technique. There are many articles available on what to bring, what to wear, who to talk to, how to act like you’re not a nervous, awkward amateur etc etc.

Rather, I’m in a state of complete befuddlement over What do I bring to eat?? The thought of 4 days without my beloved popcorn pot?? I’m already suffering from separation anxiety.Would I look ridiculous asking the flight attendant if she could kindly stuff my pot in the over-head bin?

You see, I’m a self-proclaimed popcorn addict. Ever since seesawing up and down 30lbs, weight watchers, fighting bulimia, and finding my identity apart from my appearance (still in progress folks!) I’ve come to love this white, fluffy, mana from heaven.

There’s only one way to properly manufacture these goods. A classic pot with hot oil on the stove top. I am firmly set in my ways, probably because that’s the way Dad always made it growing up (yes Dad, you still make the worlds best popcorn). No butter, just light salt or parmesan cheese. 🙂 MMMmmmm. This is making me hungry.

I know while I’m sitting in the umpteenth workshop I’m going to be dying for popcorn on the inside. ::sigh:: Why don’t they equip modern hotel rooms with a stove top these days? Don’t they know us foodie Portlanders can’t survive in Las Vegas without our precious edibles?

Perhaps it’s time to suck it up and cling to my pillow pet for comfort. That…or use my pot as a suitcase. It just might work…

    It always amazes me how much comfort my pillow pet provides. They should be marketing these treasures to stressed out adults, not young children 🙂

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
