We haven't been on too much of a budget lately due to wanting to squeeze all the fun dates that we can while we still have a little extra money. It will be a hard adjustment, not going out to eat anymore (we do that quite a bit), or buying things whenever we want. I wonder if it will be harder on my needy flesh since Michael became suspiciously good at hoarding his grocery money to pay for tattoos last year.. Our schedules at work are changing from 12 hour shifts to 10 hour shifts. Mine will start at 3am, which will also be a big adjustment, but I'm sure after a month or two we'll find our groove. Getting off in the middle of the day will allow me to pick Emma up from daycare, rather than Michael having to drop her off and pick her up. There will be a lot of changes going on in the next few months, but obviously it is all worth it to see that sweet new baby face. I'm sure each time we see her smile or hear her laugh, the stress of bills will melt away and we will give another sigh of thanks for her health, since that is the number one most important thing.
Anyway, the Fun Life title is to share some of my favorite pictures during our time at Full Sail (July 2009- March 2011). This blog is loaded with fun life posts from the past five and a half years, and now it's getting even better! I like going back and having quick references of all the times I have been so happy. Smiles are contagious, even when they are my own. I also think a lot of the fun was due to meeting new people, sharing new experiences with Michael (including falling in love!) and seeing how his make up FX skills have progressed over the years. I loved being his guinea pig for new pieces, and being so creative with my hair and make up. I attempted to put these in order. =)
With Michael's grandparents (above), then back in Orlando I decided I wanted pet hamsters, and kept them for about five months. The tiny one is Pippin, the bigger one is Kovu:
Filming short projects for another class, below. I starred in two that week since I always volunteered to be in front of the camera! This one was called "Monsters are People Too".
