The Pressure of “Lasts”

^^ Brad’s not going to have any hair after all these shoulder rides! ^^
^^ This camera bag is my new best friend. ^^
^^ Lucy obsessing over anything “baby” ^^

There was a lot of pressure for Saturday to be awesome, because it was technically our last Saturday together this summer… But to be honest, it turned out to be anything but awesome. I feel awful admitting this to the world wide web.. But after 8 years of working the videography business, I lost my first camera card. I’m convinced that Lucy either ate it, or there is a mean ghost in my house playing tricks on me! I’m trying to laugh about it now, but I’m still feeling pretty upset. The card had footage from a collaboration I filmed with Aspyn Ovard on it. It was a collaboration I was so excited about, especially because I’m just getting my feet wet on Youtube.

On Thursday when we were filming, we kept switching our cards in and out of the camera so that neither of us had to email the other person footage. I was in a fluster because our time was slim (Brad had to leave for the airport right after the shoot) so I slipped our card in my back pocket. We got back after filming and I had broken that little lock button into the lock position — AHHG! Why was I not using a case!? Suchhhhh a rookie mistake. So Brad was quickly trying to fix the card in our kitchen before he left.. And then we have NO IDEA what happened to it after that. I thought Brad had it with him on his trip, and he thought he had left it on the kitchen counter with me.. So when he returned on Saturday… That’s when we realized neither of us had it. We literally searched EVERY nook and cranny, and flipped our whole house upside down. It was nowhere to be found. So Brad is so cute and took the blame.. He reached out to Aspyn (most embarrassing thing EVER) and she was so sweet to reshoot on Saturday with us. So I quickly put away my cry-face, and it ended up not being as big of a big deal as I thought it would be. AND we also realized that the bulk of my footage was accidentally filmed on her card (Small tender mercies!). We finished reshooting and decided to go up to Craft Lake City to make up for our “Awesome Saturday” hahah — Besides “that-time-of-the-month” hitting me while we were out and about (of all days, right!?) We really enjoyed the rest of our day walking around and appreciating some local artisans. It felt good to forget about the stress from earlier, and pig out on some french macarons. πŸ˜‰ Now that I have learned my lesson with that stupid card, I am glued to my new camera bag – Hahah! I’m sure we will find that lost phantom card in some stupid place… Like Lucy’s diaper πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    i can totally understand. so sorry to hear about that, but glad that you guys found a way to fix it.
    every time i have a hard time at work, i always remember what my senior production manager always tells me " it's not that serious. just fix it."

    Days like that are rough, and I totally understand. I am glad that it all worked out though πŸ™‚ It always seems like one way or another those things always work out πŸ™‚

    My husband and I had almost the exact same scenario on Saturday!! I totally feel your pain. Except it wasn't a camera card… it was my wedding ring πŸ™

    Hailey, I'm kind of surprised (no, really surprised) to hear that Saturday was a day like this! I'm sure I was one of many people who stopped to fangirl at you three that evening, (I met you in the elevator on the way up from parking) but you and Brad were as sweet, kind, and patient as ever! I would've never guessed that you had had such a frustrating day. I was SO happy to meet you, honestly a tender mercy! Thank you for that. I adore your family and look up to you so much. I can't wait to have an eternal family like yours one day!
    Also, I love Disneyland with all my heart just like I know you do. (Happy tears all over that place). I feel like in some alternate universe we could be bffs πŸ™‚ thanks for the inspiration, I love this blog! You keep doing you, Devine family!

    Did you look under the stove? Or under the refrigerator? It is possible that it got knocked off the counter and slid under the appliances. It has happened to me, but with car keys!

    That sounds like a rough day, but I'm so happy that you go to reshoot! I've lost memory cards before and it can be so stressful and frustrating when they have such valuable or important things on them! Looking forward to seeing that collab though! πŸ™‚

    Absolute worst feeling ever isn't it! I lost my hard drive of all my travel photos from the past 7 years and cried repeatedly over it. Because it felt better to cry and I hoped crying would magically make it reappear because I most definitely do not have a cute crying face. Can't wait to see the project I'm sure it turned out amazing!

    The same thing happened to my memory card :l At least craft lake city looks amazing. I missed it πŸ™
