Emily Corey Photography bio picture
  • hey there! my name is emily and this is my little blog. i am a professional photographer and i love capturing families. although i find myself updating this blog less and less (thanks to instagram!) i do occasionally use this space for personal updates. my photography portfolio and website can be viewed here. feel free to email me with any questions you might have! emilycorey@gmail.com

{the list} | 33 things to do before 34.

{31 days of lulu | day 19. the scrap exchange. she made two pairs of binoculars in the craft room. one of them was quite large:)}

so here is my list. it is only partially done. i came up with these this morning. once again it is going to be a RANDOM list. some serious to do’s/some silly to do’s. but i need some help people! any suggestions on numbers 16-33???

1. disney world with lulu
{my mom and i are already trying to make this happen!}

2. another baby

3. send more hand written letters.

4. run a 5k
{i used to run. but my RE told me i couldnt exercise during my IVF cycle. so i stopped. its been 4 years. time i get back to it already.}

5. get highlights
{my mom still cuts my hair. it is a problem. i mean really, i am 33. i need higher hair maintenance. thinking highlights would be fun.}

6. make an infusion ‘alcohol

7. create set office hours

8. turn nook into office {half marked out because we are working on it}

9. make meditation part of daily routine
{that makes it sound like i meditate now. i dont. i tried once but got bored, but i think it would be so good for me}

10. make a vegan feast for friends
{i have a feeling they might all be busy that weekend:) but i just read ‘the kind life diet’ and am inspired to move more towards vegan
living. but i freaking love pizza and ice cream. so for now i will just commit to a vegan feast.}

11. wear my hair curly more often {i have naturally curly hair. i am not sure why i ever stopped wearing it that way}

12. Put together 31 days of lulu | 2010 album

13. go to vegas.

14. paint walls in my house{ready for a mini face lift for house}

15. find a church i love.

16. create an epic/killer craft with lulu

17. take lulu to the farm. {we try to buy a lot of our meat for lu and lee from one family at the farmers market. they have asked us to visit their farm. i am a huge advocate for buying cruelty free meat. think it would be neat to visit and see how the animals are truly treated}

18. update to ca mau

19. push myself. i so often see images that inspire me but are ones i would never think to create. i want to push myself more this year. play more with props, etc.

20. re-frame maps in living room. {a few years ago lee and i bought these pretty awesome maps. but i have always hated how we framed them. time to reframe to make a bit more modern}

21. learn more capitals. printing THIS out. {ok, so i love this. my brave little sis in law has been in the hospital for a long time waiting on her little girl to be born. her doc has kept her occupied by asking her capitals of different countries every day. pretty cute, huh? i can just see sarah having her shining moment sometime down the road during trivial pursuit when they ask the capital of Tonga. she will proudly say Nuku’alofa:)

22. take lu to the nc art museum

23. can something..thinking pickled okra maybe

24. live more green. make at least 5 big changes to go more green.

25. draw a portrait of lulu.

26. find my wedding album

27. stop talking about wanting another baby so much

28. buy an sx-70

29. shoot with my sx-70

30. join a  CSA

31. watch casablanca (i actually owned this movie in college. but my friends dog ate it before we ever watched it:)}

32. take pictures for all four of my siblings.

33. make another lu video

jess - July 21, 2010 - 9:20 pm

first of all…love the binoculars.

second. love this list! especially 1,2,6,11 and 13. I was getting worried you were going to flake on vegas. you’d better not…you are sort of a part of my photography journey so it would help if you showed up :). we’ve also been discussing a disney trip. AND i am looking into meditation classes. so close…yet so far away we are, hee!

A PERFECT list! Love it. I have many of the same things on mine as well. Cheers to a great year!

Rebecca - July 22, 2010 - 1:51 pm

Great list. I really need to do this! Oh–and my mom often cuts my hair still, too.

amy free - July 23, 2010 - 3:02 pm

I looooove this list! I’m sitting here racking my brain about things to add, but it’s so well rounded I can’t come up with anything! xoxo

Erica - July 26, 2010 - 3:38 am

I like the list! I’d love to go to WPPI next year…not sure if I will be able to make it happen, but I can dream!

angie - July 28, 2010 - 12:51 pm

i so need a list…i love this! i do much better with goals, but i never set them because i am afraid to fail :)

i would have some of the same items on my list. we really need to paint the walls…but i keep putting it off until we are done will little ones running around and getting them all dirty. she probably just bite the bullets since we won’t be done with kiddos for awhile!

love the pics and list. always have. i thought about creating a summer list, but I think I like this idea of creating a list of things to do before i turn, gasp, 35. i have found a little inspiration here: http://www.remedialeating.com/2010/06/no-37.html she puts fun things on her summer list, some things you might find you’d like to add. thank you for the inspiration. give lu a hug for us. xo
