Halfway through the day today I was like “Oh, it’s Tuesday. I need to write my 5TT post.” And then I forgot. So here I am, nine hours later, writing finally. Here goes it:
1 JESSEPENICOGOTMARRIEDS! - First off, my awesomely talented, equally cool bearded friend, Jesse Penico GOTMARRIED this weekend. And I’m so happy for him! He and Sarah Mae are so adorable. Add in Ollie and they are the cutest family.
Laughter, love, and many years of joy ahead of you all!
2 EPICLINEDANCING - This last weekend I had the privilege to go country line dancing with some of amazing people in my community group. Best time ever.
The car ride was pure country music. The dancing was so much fun. I learned how to two-step. My friend Alyssa got flowers and a phone number. And well, we all just had a blast.
That is until my friend’s car window got smashed in. Praise God nothing was stolen. But still.
Then we had Sonic. So - everything was great except the car window part. But yeah.
3 MYSISTERIS A CARNIE - Yeah. Apparently skydiving and bungee jumping isn’t quite cutting it anymore. The sister is taking trapeze lessons. What?! Weirdo.
I used to have a swing in my bedroom as a child. Might’ve been equally as cool to have a trapeze set in my living room. Notes to self.
4 SITEPREVIEW + TUMBLRFACELIFT- I’ve been working overtime to revamp the photography website and in the process I gave my Tumblr a facelift. What do y’all think?
Everything is starting to come together. And I’m sort of happy with what I have so far, but then again it’s a work in progress. Here’s a sneak peek!
5 THEBOOKOFMORMONANYBODY? I want to go see this. But it’s about $80+ a pop and my schedule is really sporadic. But if you’re in the LA area and want to watch The Book of Mormon with me, let me know. It looks hilarious. Winner of 9 Tony’s!
I remember the first time I heard about Freelance Whales. It was somewhere on the RELEVANT Podcast where Jesse Carey made some sort of cheesy joke about how that’s the best type of whales to hire: freelance.
That’s what stuck with me until I actually heard their music somewhere on the Franky episode of Skins UK. Actually that whole episode had great songs.
Anyways. Back to the today’s song … “Locked Out” is the first single off the band’s sophomore album that dropped earlier this month. I love how the video features footage from behind the scenes.
Another interesting fact is that one of the band members, Chuck Criss, is Darren Criss’ brother (Blaine from Glee). Music runs in the family apparently.
Hello friends. Sorry that I completely slacked on my Monday Music Share yesterday. I just kind of dropped the ball on that. My bad.
Anyways - I’m going to try to at least get my 5TT post up. Hmmmm. What has been going on in my life? Brainstorm a bit, Jo. Ok here goes:
1 MOREWORKYO- This past week or so I’ve gotten a handful of unexpected calls and referrals. It’s so crazy but I’m so grateful. All that hard work is starting to pay off. Hustling and networking and getting my crap together.
New Wittlebee project. A model test shoot at Abbot Kinney. Realty shots. And corporate head shots. I’m mostly excited about the model test shoot. It’ll be a learning curve (just like everything else has been) but I’m ready to give it a go!
2 LINEDANCINGONFRIDAY - Another thing I’m really excited about it going line dancing with some of the people in my community group. Having lived in Texas/Oklahoma for a total of 9 years, I love me anything country. And I’m ready to line dance! Yeah!
Ima have to start practicing. Nome sane?
3 I’VEGOTTASTARTPLANNINGFORHALLOWEEN - Honestly, I haven’t gone to a Halloween party ever. In the last decade we’ve always had The Honor Academy’s Homecoming that weekend, so I always happened to just been with my TX friends then instead of any Armor costume parties.
But this year, we’re having our own little West LA costume party but I have no idea what to dress up as (suggestions welcome). But there are definitely plans for some eyeball cake pops. Ew that sounds so gross.
(photo below of some Armor/Imago friends - this picture STILL cracks me up after all these years)
4 PITCHPERFECTISAWESOME - I watched Pitch Perfect this last weekend and it was HIGH-larious! I recommend it to all. Although, there is singing all over it so if that’s not your thing then don’t watch it. But I laughed a lot. And it was great acapella.
Oh man. Who knew that the girl from Twilight could sing like that? Seriously. Check it.
5 COLORRUNISIN A COUPLEWEEKS - And I’m sort of ready. Not really. I keep on having these spurts of like “Yes! I can run forever!” and some days like today … not so much. But it’s only a 5K. Should be able to crush it, right?
Hope my cousin is still doing it. It’d suck to go all the way to San Diego to run by myself. But heck, color paint powder! It’ll be fun regardless!
