A Few Words for a Friday

Hello friends in the blog-o-sphere, how has life been treating you?

I have been sick. Often. Too often. Stomach flu a few weeks ago followed by a nasty cold this week. I find myself praying to be healthy and sleep through the night! Last night was my closest, only up twice and pretty much able to go back to sleep right away. I chalked it up as a win =o) Who knows, maybe tonight will be even BETTER! My friend R is going to be staying at my place for the weekend, so maybe sleeping through the night will happen just because we'll end up staying up too late ;o)

My youngest nephew is 2. today. officially. 2. I can't believe it! As "they" say, kids grow so quickly =o\ They really do! My brother K sent me a few pictures via text last week and I can't believe how much little E is looking more like a little boy and less like a toddler... *sigh* Christmas can't come soon enough. I can't wait to spend a big part of my time home with the 4 kiddos... I just want to hug them!

Tomorrow I don't have to work and R and I are going to have a roommate day with A and hopefully C? C isn't sure yet, but hopefully we can steal her from her hubby for a couple of hours... Who knows what we'll do, but I'm sure it will be fun regardless! I love getting to spend time talking and laughing with these gals! Of course I recommended a picnic, but no one has said anything, so I'm not entirely confidant. You can't blame a girl for trying to make the most of a 62 degree and sunny fall day, can you? If we do picnic, or really no matter what, I'll try to remember to take my camera with me to capture a few moments.

Sunday is our Fall Festival at church! You should come! There's more info about it here.

I accidentally put my most used USB drive in the dryer. I'm not going to lie, it kind of freaked me out when I opened the dryer and saw it laying there. I mean, I know I have back-ups of everything on my external hard drive, but still... it's my favorite. ha. Happily, it is still working! Such a resilient piece of hardware! Proof you ask? Here you go... a photo from the dried USB. Have a great weekend Blogger Friends!

Catching Up


It's been a while since I've really really posted, hasn't it blog friends? Lets see... I moved, but I still haven't unpacked, so I can't show you photos... my room is a 'zaster! I'm getting used to having a roommate again, but it's been a while, so give me time ;o)

God has been working on me. I don't know how much more I'm up for sharing, but it's true... He has been changing my heart a lot and opening my eyes. I love when He does this almost as much as it can hurt when He does this...

My parents are coming to town this weekend!! I can't wait to see them!

I have been talking with a friend lately about real friendship and communication, how far someone is really willing to go to open up to others. You should read G's blog post here. I'll have to write more on it sometime soon...

I did a photoshoot for a coworkers son. Senior photos... that's where this past weeks Wordless Wednesday came from. I took that shot with my brand new lens (#16)!!! I'm so excited to have a wide angle (that slightly fish eye's) and I think it's going to be an awesome addition to the camera family ;o)


I don't know what else to say at the moment (my brain is on "excited to see my parents mode") so I'll leave you with another photo taken with the previously stated new lens =o)

Have a great weekend, blogging friends! I know I will ;o)

Attitude changes Everything

I had a terrible start to my today. I woke up late on the first morning I was planning on going to the gym before work (and get back to the gym at all) and then some guy kept honking at me for maintaining the speed limit and not hitting pedestrians on my way to work...

Needless to say, I was irritated by the end of my 8 minute drive.

But I brought my new earrings to work today to show my coworkers. They're not really "meant for work" earrings... they're more "I'm feeling hot and going out with friends" earrings.

But one of my coworkers convinced me to put them on.


Attitude change.

Suddenly, I'm a rockstar. I'm awesome and sassy and I know it. I can rock earrings like this simply because I'm awesome. I don't need another reason!

What can change your mood in a moment? Apparently I just needed these:

I wish I had had more time last night. Somehow there were more hours in my evening, or maybe just for a newer faster laptop?

I had a photo shoot of a coworkers son. Aaron is a really cool Senior in High school and we did some senior shots for him around "the farm" a couple hundred acres that I would love another chance to explore! But instead I will try to keep my weary eyes opened tonight to get at least a few of my favorites edited and uploaded so you can see them!

I kind of want to enter one or two into a photo contest....... you'll have to let me know what you think!
