30 Day Photo Challenge: Day #6

From a low angle

So this is at the parade yesterday looking up at the sky where the roof of the Derailed Saloon meets the Sidewalk Tree. I like taking pictures of trees, I like the branches, twigs, and leaves.

Speaking of trees, here's another one of my favorite tree pictures:
I like the curly branches :)

and I like this one:

I love the blossoms on this one, and actually I think I've put this one in a post before. But oh well. It's worth a second look.


Tomorrow: Fruit (crap, guess I need to buy some!)

30 Day Photo Challenge: Day #5

From a high angle

 It didn't say it had to be from a REALLY high angle, right? I'm in love with this picture I took this morning. I put this on the Facebook too, sue me. We went to the Fiesta Days Parade with our friends and watched the cowgirls ride horses, and the cowboys drive trucks.

And Sarah, I hope you don't mind that I post this picture of Gracie; it's too cute, too!


Tomorrow: From a low angle (whoa! didn't see that one coming, didya?)

30 Day Photo Challenge: Day #4

Something Green

So I perused my house in search of some green, interesting thing that wasn't a plant or a moldy lemon, and found this little peacock feather. I can't remember where it came from, or why I have it, but it sits next to my computer normally.

In Greyson's news, he has this weird rash (yes, you read my blog, you will hear of gross things), and it totally covers his torso. But he has no symptoms at all - no fever, no scratching, nothing. But he has been teething; I don't suppose there's such thing as a Teething Rash? Probably not. But he popped a molar to my surprise the other day. I was expecting another front tooth, but nope, it's a big honkin' molar which explains why he's been such a krabby-patty lately (Spongebob forever!).

Anyway, tomorrow's photo challenge is Day 5 - From a high angle...

30 Day Photo Challenge: Day 3


So yesterday I was sitting in traffic (yes that's right, I said traffic), and I looked over and saw this cloud in the sky that caught my attention, so I snapped a picture of it. Doesn't it look like a seahorse? Or maybe a trojan horse? Or some kind of trojan seahorse? It even has an eye!

30 Day Photo Challenge: Day #2

What I Wore Today

Nothing too special - but I like dressing up a little sometimes. Though I hate it when I put effort into my outfit and not end up seeing anyone. I feel like I wasted a whole day of creative ensembles :) But today I had a "Lunch 'n Learn" and then a lunch with my dad (oh yes, I ate lunch twice). So anyway, it's just some gray slacks, a cami, and a white button-up that I cinched with one of my favorite belts (it's stretchy! - perfect for a Two Lunches kind of day). And I wore gold dangle earrings and literally topped it off with my new bun.

Tomorrow: Day 3 - Clouds

30 Day Photo Challenge

Alright, since I've been such a crap blogger lately, I've decided to do the 30 day photo challenge just to help me get back into the swing of things. I know it's done a LOT, but hey, I'm doing it too.

So Day One: A Self-Portrait

So today I tried to do this bun (click here for video tutorial) and it came out OK. I'm excited to give it another try, but I'm just not so good at teasing my hair. I'll get better :)

Oh and by the way, the bet's still going! Zack's been doing dishes instead of getting presents. I can't decide which I'd prefer, but hey I like not having to do the dishes!

Tomorrow: Day 2 - What I Wore Today

I won the bet :)

First of all, let me tell you that I'm claiming amnesia AND pleading the 5th as to why I haven't been writing - I have no excuse (other than being way too flippin' busy) and am ashamed :'(

Anyway, back to the blog...

Yesterday, I texted Zack and told him that Snoopy's making salmon for dinner. (By the way, Snoopy is what we call my step mom, and she and my dad are here visiting.) To which Zack replied "Sweet!" So later that night Zack tells me that I told him that Snoopy was making swordfish (Zack's had a hankering for Snoopy's swordfish for the last two years) and I said "No, I said salmon." And I bet him a month's worth of dishes that I was right and he ACCEPTED, the nerd. So we check our texts and yes of course, I'm right. Fellas, if a girl bets you a month's worth of dishes, she's pretty damn sure she's right.

So Zack was all wounded that he lost so I thought of an alternative, and that being that he has to give me a present every day for a month. It doesn't have to be anything that costs money, just something sweet or thoughtful or nice or cute, etc. Which I think is perfect because that 's the kind of cute things people do when they're dating, you know? Still trying to woo, so to speak, which is exactly what I need - to be wooed.

So today has been Day 1 of Dishes or Gift Month, and this lucky girl has her dishes done AND some new, homegrown fancy tomatoes! Score....!

My beautiful tomatoes

My beautiful dish-less sink

And my cupboard full of my beautifully clean cups
