I Survived!!!

So, it is the day after Black Friday and I made it! I successfully started my Christmas shopping! It was crazy, as usual, but I had nice girl's day out with my mother & daughter. Broke? Yes, but isn't that what Christmas is all about? Nah, to me it's still about Jesus' birthday & being with family...I do, however feel the need to spend...but, ehhh, I do that all year anyway! One thing I did find, though, was 80's Scene It! I am so excited to kick my husband's butt!

The Other Oprah

People always laugh when they find out our chihuahua is named Oprah, but we are so used to her being named that, that when someone is talking about "The Original Oprah", I think of my dog first...

The Lego Man

My oldest son wanted to be a Lego Minifig for Halloween, so I made him this costume (with my husband's help). He absolutely loved it! I have to say it was the best costume I've ever made...excluding, of course the sixth grade costume that I made for myself-a TV tuned to NBC with the rainbow peacock. Yes, a strange choice for a sixth grader, but I wanted to make sure no one had the same costume. Needless to say, no one did!

My First Post! YAY ME!!!

OK, I've had this blog for a while now, but I didn't know what to say. Me speechless? Yes, this is rare...but I am hoping to express myself on a keyboard. We'll see! I am about halfway through my photography course and things are going pretty well, I must say. This past week, however was not the best...I had "writer's block"...hmmm, what is that called for a photographer? I think I am just so used to a digital camera that it is hard for me to take 35mm photos. I get "stingy" with my exposures...and as a (somewhat) perfectionist, if I don't think the shot is great, I won't take the picture. I am a little more generous with my digital. The funny thing is, it is not the money to buy the film that I care's the wasted photo. Needless to say, as much as I love my class, I love my digital camera more. This is a photo I like to call Holy Caterpillar...I took it at the Kateri Shrine. Not to mention the fact that the poor thing was lucky, because I almost stepped on it on the way out.
