What a week!

This past week was possibly the busiest of the year...but it was great. My folks were in town and somehow I had planned like every meeting of the year into the past 6 days so I was running around like a chicken with his head cut off...


I'll start with something fun ... I learned to cook my own steak! Can you believe that I have never done that. My dad always took great pride in manning the grill and now I have some friends who always do it but last night I had to man-up! ;) We were at a restaurant where you cook your own steak and it was pretty funny because I wasn't even that hungry and so I was just gonna share a steak with Christianne's sister but Christianne said "be a man and get your own" and I was a little embarrassed b/c I didn't know how to cook it so she helped me a little bit and I was very proud to have cooked my own steak...well...kinda cooked it. She likes her steak rare so that's the way I cooked mine too. It was the first time I've ever had a rare steak and it was so good!

So going back...our Wednesday morning get together really got me stoked and filled up for the rest of the week! Wow! God is doing rad things in our lives and to get together and celebrate that gets me so stoked!

Then I cruised down to OC for a meeting that my friend Greg Bumatay put together in his awesome studio. He's an incredible photographer and he also gives back by teaching at Cypress College so he invited 10 of his students over and we shared Showit with them and got feedback about what they liked and didn't like. The response was unreal and we are looking to do more of these around the country so if you are an educator or a student then please contact our Director of Love - JD@showitfast.com and we'll set it up.


Then the Orange County SMUG happened! Wow! SmugMug is doing such an incredible job building community and it doesn't hurt to have Jasmine Star leading the group! There were 250 people including other inspirations like Becker, Bobby Earle, Gabriel and Carlie Ryan, Dane Sanders etc etc etc.....


ok... this post is too long. Have a great weekend!

Dude, so psyched to be a part of your busy week!

Thanks for feeding me freaking DELICIOUS burgers at that place. Can't wait to go back there!

I'm thinking maybe you need to cut back on the steak...you need to get down to about 135 if you want to be a jockey...

Bobby Earle said...

That or the tallest bantamweight in MMA :D

Kristin Renee said...

Hey, that is the same place I cooked my first steak too!! Congrats! Isn't it a good feeling? Almost too easy huh? :)

Is it just me or does cooking your own food at a restaurant seem weird? When I eat out it's because I want somebody to cook it FOR ME.

Katherine Bowman said...

:) I agree with you Kevin!

The only steak I've cooked was on a George Foreman, haha! I usually let the men in my life handle the grill (not that I wouldn't want to do it...but it's just "their thing.")

gotta hand it to you DJ, you know how to fill up a schedule! you're crazy ;) can't wait to hang out next week sometime! haha right now I'm in the middle of Chicago and I have no idea where I am or what I'm doing. Er, rather... I have a wedding here Sunday, and supposedly and engagement shoot today, but its pouring rain and I came zero prepared! The State Street Bread Company is a life saver though. You should see the food I just put down... they even made me a huge omelette and Belgian waffle!
