ten on tuesday.

1. The only thing better than the Tuesday before Spring Break is the Tuesday of Spring Break. And that’s happening in T(uesday)-7 days. So everything is right in my world. Bring on the beach!

2. Brent has taken a new job at work that’s demanding a ton of his time while he learns the ropes. He’s now the chief engineer over a small project at NASA (way to go babe!) but my Dad has conveniently chosen to leave off that last prepositional phrase, instead insisting that Brent is the chief engineer of NASA. I guess there’s nothing like a proud father-in-law.

3. I finally finished Wonderwomen: Sex, Power and the Quest for Perfection and I highly recommend it. Now I feel compelled to read Cheryl Sandberg’s Lean In. Have you read it? Would you recommend it? It’s number one on Marie Claire’s 10 Books Every 20-Something Should Read so I feel I simply must read it. Nevermind that I’m a 30-something who should not be taking reading recommendations from a fashion magazine.

4. I found out on Friday that I passed the standards set forth by Professional Photographers of America to become a Certified Professional Photographer. After almost seven years in business that may sound like a no brainer but it’s a surprisingly rigorous process to achieve this certification. I’m thrilled to now be the only photographer in my zip code to be a CPP!

5. If you’re a photographer I would highly encourage you to pursue certification. The process itself was humbling, educational, inspiring and, ultimately, incredibly rewarding. I’m happy to be a resource and answer any questions you might have about it. Feel free to email me. (erin at erincobb dot com)

6. I’m all for finding the missing Malaysian airlines flight but I’m going on record saying that events like this bring out the worst in 24 hours cable news. I’m currently (not) watching CNN show a flight simulator experience, all the while explaining how not real the simulator is and how unknown the fate of the plane is. Also, lots of time spent reading random tweets out loud. I don’t know guys, but this doesn’t feel like “news”.

7. Last night Ephraim let Tigger in after a brief run in the chilly backyard and as they snuggled back onto the couch E said, “Tigger, I bet you’re doggone cold.” AH! Kindergarten humor is my FAVE kind.

8. Maybe I should propose a 24 hour kindergarten comedy channel to replace 24 hour news. Surely this would be a step in the right direction for the world.

9. I tend to agree with Glennon from Momastery in pretty much all the major life categories. But today her Facebook page made me question everything I ever thought I knew about our (very imaginary) soul kinship. Because, this:

“Ugh. Is it Tuesday? Tuesday’s have no identity. We need to think of something special about Tuesday to give it some life. Poor Tuesday.” ~ Glennon

My poor, sweet Tuesday. Clearly Glennon needs some Ten on Tuesday in her life.

10. And finally, a shameless plug. Last week I found out that I was nominated on Rocket City Mom (a local parenting website) as one of Huntsville’s best children’s photographers. There are several other worthy photographers in my category but I sure would love your vote. Do you have two seconds? No need to register or anything…all you have to do is click and scroll down. Thank you my friends!

Looking at the Marie Claire list, the Bittman book is my go-to gift for college grads! I don’t think I’d read that first book on the list unless you are looking to work in a corporate setting with a lot of men. Being a business owner, I think you are all set in terms of holding the top office!!
