Today I spent literally ALL DAY LONG. Working on getting the Portland Bloggers Website updated and refreshed. The Portland Bloggers’ Master List also got a complete overhaul. Which means… if you are a Portland Blogger and were on the Master List before you need to RE-LIST your blog. I know… total pain in the tail. But, it will totally be worth it! The new features are seriously going to be so good for bloggers and for visitors to the Portland Bloggers’ website.
If you are a new reader to my blog then you might note that I have a lot of posts on Portland, Oregon. I moved to Oregon from Oklahoma about 7 years ago and have never felt more at home in my life. A few years ago the opportunity came about that I could start planning meet-ups for local bloggers. I took that opportunity and ran with it. The Portland Bloggers’ website and meet-up group is now bigger and better than I could have ever imagined it could be. We’ve got an amazing leadership team of local bloggers volunteering their time to help make each event a success and to keep the website filled with great blogging resources.
Anyways… I didn’t do much of anything “Snapshot” worthy this weekend as I just sat in front of the computer in my pajamas. But, I do think what I got done is pretty noteworthy! If you are a follower from the Portland, Oregon area pop on over to the Portland Bloggers website and check us out!

Last week the lovely Macey from Motormouth Studios and Bee from The Spicy Bee joined me and some family to create 8 different cocktails and photograph them for future blog posts . Sometimes it is easy to forget how much work goes behind the scenes in beautiful blog photos.
For this shoot we had a ton of different ingredients and moving light. At one point we had to move the entire table and all of our props to the cul de sac in front of my house so that we had enough light to finish. Of course, it was all a ton of fun as well. It’s work, but it is my favorite kind of work!
Happy Sunday! I hope you all have had a great weekend.
