Spring Cleaning and A Little Bit of Snow | KNIGHT vs. Dr. Mrs. KNIGHT | Vote Now!

Sunday, March 1, 2009

You would think after this post that we have nothing better to do with our time except for playing in the snow. Like we have no weddings or editing to do? The truth is, frolicking outside in the 'once a year' Atlanta snow is exactly what we do to keep ourselves sane! With two weddings and an engagement session this month, we are busy editing the remainder of our shoots to get ready for a marathon season of nuptials that stretches from Atlanta to California to Chicago to New York to North/South Carolina to Miami to Jamaica to Canada and hopefully back to Africa then London.

This weekend we decided it was best to stay home and start our Spring cleaning. Since our 1 year wedding anniversary is coming up next Monday (3/9/2009) it just seemed right to get down in the basement and rid ourselves of the old and then tidy up around the house. We even summoned the courage to buy a new couch after tossing out our dated coffee tables and mirror.

I had to make a run to Kinkos sometime today so when I woke up I immediately started planning how we could make it to church, the gym, a radio event, and then an associate dinner. When I opened my blinds I was surprised to see that the constant local news weather forecast this past week was correct. I had on short sleeves yesterday moving trash and today it was snowing. Not little flurries but actually snowing large flakes. I couldn't believe my eyes. I figured it would last for a few minutes but minutes turned to hours??

We drove to Kinkos and managed to survive/dodge the erratic driving behavior of Atlantans who seemed to think that the interstate had turned into the Indy racetrack. After making it safely downtown, I was able to get all of my printing done. We exited the building and decided we couldn't resist crossing the street and running out to the park. The rest is history.

I had my camera so we took turns taking pictures of our best MTV's Made - I Want to Be A Cheerleader impersonations. We have 4 Rounds for you to vote and declare a winner!

Age: 29
Weight: ? (Never tell a woman's weight)
Attire: Green Bucket Hat w/ Matching Peacoat
Special Threat: Cute Face and Pink Breast Cancer Rain Boots

Age: 29 (30 by 4/30/2009)
Weight: 175 lbs
Attire: Traditional Patented Black Photographer Jacket w/ Peanut Butter Timberlands
Special Threat: A Crazy Imagination and Magical Hat Purchased at Coldplay Concert

Round 1: KNIGHT vs. Dr. Mrs. KNIGHT (Sizing Up The Competition)

Round 2: KNIGHT vs. Dr. Mrs. KNIGHT (True Creative Form)

Round 3: KNIGHT vs. Dr. Mrs. KNIGHT (Show Some Personality)

Round 4: KNIGHT vs. Dr. Mrs. KNIGHT (Freestyle)

Judging should be based on style, creativity, form, personality, level of difficulty, and anything else you can think up. Pick only one winner per round. Feel free to give us scores of 1 - 10 per round. 10 is the highest score. We'll wait a few days to tally the scores and announce the winner!!

Dude, things must have been really slow in the 'A' for you and Bran to be competing at cheerleading in the snow....wow! I will give it to you both though...wifey is a 'down chick' to be frolickin' in the snow. I don't know too many 'sistas' that would have been willing to jump out there like that.

Okay...on to the judging. I have the Dr. Mrs. taking round 2 and I have you taking rounds 1 and 4. Then, I have you dead even in round 3....therefore, I crown you Atlanta Cheer champ! What a great exercise! It fits the two of you to a tee!! Didn't know you were sooooo talented...all you needed were a set of pom poms and a mini skirt...LOL!

Saadia Me'Chel said...

Round 3: Knight (7)
Round 4: Knight (10)

I'll give your wife a 10 for that first picture... lol Looks like you guys had a lot of fun in the snow yesterday. I've been in GA all my life and its not everyday we get snow. Had to captialize on the opportunity to be a kid again. My boyfriend and I had a huge snowball fight and made snowmen!

U will have a BLAST with the Sunsets and the Water. JAMAICA JAMAICA! Welcome to JAMROCK! Let me know when you are going, how long you are going for, if you'll have any time for doing tourist stuff (which for me includes lots of local stuff), and if Brandi is going with you. I'll give you some suggestions of places to go and things to do in my Island home. Im going a couple of times this year starting this month.

How Fun! Snow is so pretty but I can't take the cold; I'd much rather look at it than play in it.

As for the results,


I love Brandi's pea coat and matching hat! So cute and stylish! The pink boots are an interesting touch.

Your photos are awesome. Gotta say round 2 to the little lady and I love the round 4 cartwheel Ross.

As always the colors are crisp and beautiful. You have an eye for the amazing!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Alright...this was hard. Round one is hands down Mrs. Dr. Knight. The pose was very cute. Plus the coat and matching hat are pretty banging, so you have to give points. It was tough but I give rough two to Mrs. Dr. Knight too, gotta give points for the flexibility. 3 and 4 go to you Ross. The round 4 pose invoked thoughts of the movies Wild Style or Breaking...definitely fire.

Unknown said...

Way to go you two...I love this post. Brandi, you were ROK'n the green jacket and hat. Green is my favorite color.

Round 1: Ross-7 | Brandi-8
Round 2: Ross-8 | Brandi-10
Round 3: Ross-9 | Brandi-9
Round 4: Ross-10| Brandi-8

the attire (style & personality) goes to Dr. Mrs.

You guys be blessed, safe, and sane. CONGRATS on the 1 year anniversary I will have mine two weeks later. Keep warm.

KNIGHT said...

Now that was a barehanded cartwheel. My hands were freezing. And I took off my big coat to make those moves. For some reason the Dr. Mrs. made everything seem effortless. Nevertheless, I was really concentrating on form! I only decided to post 4 rounds because if you see the rest of the pics you'll probably laugh until you cry. That was definitely a crazy afternoon. We had cars stopping in the street to watch what we were doing. Even a stray dog stopped for a while and took a seat!


Dawn said...

Round 1: Dr. Mrs. 9
Ross 8

Round 2: Dr. Mrs. 9
Ross 7

Round 3 Dr. Mrs. 10
Ross 9

Round 4 Dr. Mrs. 9
Ross 10

Dr. Mrs. had the edge with the green hat and coat to match my eyes! But no matter how you add it up you two are a perfect 10!:-)


Anonymous said...

What cute pictures. lol I think the Dr. Mrs takes all the rounds except the final one... who can compete with a one hand cart wheel... or whatever move that is. lol

I must admit I wish I hadn't chosen this particular day to visit your blog because now I am convicted about doing my own spring cleaning... I guess it's gotta be done. ::sigh:: Thanks a lot... lol

The Nappturous Diva said...

Ok - you guys are crazy! But it looks like you had too much fun!

Round 1 - Dr. Knight - loving the pink and green!!

Round 2 - Knight - you get points for creativity - don't think I've ever seen that pose before, lol!

Round 3 - Dr. Knight - perfect cheerleader pose!

Round 4 - Knight - that cartwheel is off the hook!

Thanks for making me laugh and for the great images!


Anonymous said...

How can I choose... without choosing?

I give props to the Dr. Mrs. for being a "Ride or Die" wife. I give props to Ross for having found a "Ride or Die" wife.

I give it a tie (was that PC enough without choosing a side?)

PS.. Ross did trump you with the one hand cart wheel. I knew he had some B-boy in him. Great shoot though Dr. Mrs.!
