My life is pretty ordinary. I mean I’ve got one kid, my husbands got a full time 9-5 (sorta) job, and I sorta work from home & act like a housewife.
We don’t have anything spectacular to share when it comes to day to day activities so I decided I’d spice up my boring day with my olloclip.
True story: this post was going to have REAL DSLR images on it. hi res. gorgeous edits. then I thought: thats not real life. What’s real life is raw, and noisy and not glorified. (and because I deleted the images I started on my camera from the morning.)
So here I present you some killer Olloimages.
My images start as I make my way to the school to pick up my baby girl. Welcome to my August 21st.
It looked like a it’d be a pretty gloomy day – it being monsoon season.
It makes for a perfect day to free-lens on an olloclip right?
You’re completely right, I need more coffee. So I stopped into Safeway for some Starbucks.
I was waiting for my coffee when a woman looked at my phone and was like- “Oh isn’t that cool, is that a lens?”
Yes, yes it is. Now let me tell you all about it in 1.4 minutes while we wait for my iced coffee.
Sat in the car, sipped coffee. and then it happened …
the rain was only going to hold off for so long.
the sprinkles they came down and they came down hard, but I’ll tell you we braved that sprinkling like it was no body’s business.
Brought my baby doll home and popped in some Fish sticks for lunch, MMM.
I was then held at my will to play a game with my child, where she later threw a fit that I was winning and threw a pillow at the game.
During her time out, I did some editing.
When she cooled off, we played Legos.
I once again ran away, sanity in hand, to edit quickly between being a mom and slave to my daughter.
I decided letting her rollerblade outside could get out some energy she has pent up,
so we all but roped a pillow to her hind quarters and headed outside.
When she’s red in the face like that, it means the energy is escaping her.
Then it was off to teach her what belly muscles are and why we need them to balance.
The reality hit me.
I was actually a grown up.
Not a playmate, or a Photoshop junkie.
Time for the household chores – PM edition.
One of my best friends has 4 legs and purrs, so what?
Those dishes got done, and I had to show you so you didn’t
pass judgment on me too quickly.
Made some Sodium-filled Velveta Mac n Cheese to go with
whatever I made – It was a very “whatever” dinner night.
I sat with my daughter at her kids table and talked crap about the stuffed the uncool stuffed animals
and raved about all the hottest trends in a 4 year olds life.
I am omitting the picture I have of my amazing husband passed out in bed, which he’s not aware I have
but I am so so so lucky and thankful to have him as someone to share my bed with and settle in for the night with, every night.
My life ain’t glam, it’s not perfect. But it’s sure a heck of a lot cooler through an #olloclip.
