There are so many things I should be doing.
1. filling out a rebate
2. order more water filters
3. return a friend's phone call
4. answer some questions my accountant has
5. clean
6. dishes
7. work on my demo reel
8. do I need to go on?

Instead I am practicing my photoshop skills and did this. I'm learning, I'm learning. And the internet is a plethora of information!

Isn't he cute? He's my little old man--and a snuggler to boot!

Hope you enjoyed the many posts this week. I'm officially going to be off after this. I really need to tackle my to-do list.

Stay in bed?

Today my stars were not aligned.
If I wasn't so frustrated I would have laughed when I dropped the water cup on my foot.
When I missed my hair appointment.
When I did my taxes wrong.
Or when I burnt the rice.

(And now that it is late at night I shall go watch terrible, yet wonderful reality television in bed.)

It's Monday....what do I see?

And here it is Monday again. My little one was sick and stayed home with husband. Poor guy--but he is such a snuggle bug when he is under the weather.

In the meantime....this weekend, when the little one was not sick, I decided to update his photosheet. He's 10 months now and it was time.

This was my favorite shot that I got. It's so playful and yummy.

Of course when I was shooting the little one, the big one was like...shoot my picture. This serious shot was the first one I took. I looked at him and said....want to smile? Make a face? And that's what he did. Which made me smile.

I Heart Faces Photo Challenge


It's that time of week again. Photo Challenge! I'm really enjoying doing this so here I go again. (

I did this photoshoot for a friend for her Christmas card and I just adore it. This shot didn't make the card but I love it anyways. Hope you do too.

It's Monday....what do I see?

We found the bubbles this past weekend. Bubbles are magical. Even if they are from last year and look quite...nasty. Next Target stop--stock up on new bubbles!

I heart faces

I recently found this website ( ) and have been really enjoying it. They have weekly challenges and I decided to play this week. It's collage week--so here is my worm collage. A repeat, pic I know. I will post my usual Monday new pic as well but wanted to get this in.

When did he grow up? I still remember him holding my hands to balance before he could walk....
Well, before I get too nostalgic about it, I'll just appreciate every phase. And every moment. Because it truly has been a fun ride so far.

It's Monday.....what do I see?

I realized that I say it's Monday....what do I see? But really the pics are from the past week. Well, that's how I roll.
This weekend was interesting. Saturday everything seemed to be out of sorts. My boys would not listen and worse yet...whined a lot. I was grumpy. My husband could do nothing right--in my eyes anyways. I went to bed thinking...what a wasted Saturday. Days that I usually treasure.
Sunday...was a whole new day. It was a day where everything went right. My boys were loving, listening and napping. I adored my husband. I felt happy inside. We went on a very early outing to the beach. We stayed so long because we were having such a blast. Then we ate at one of my favorite old school restaurants and my boys were on best behavior. When we got home--cold and worn out--we relaxed. All of us. It was lovely.
And then it rained all night long while we were cozy and warm in our beds and I realized I. AM. ONE. LUCKY. GIRL.

It's Monday.....what do I see?

Alas, it is Monday. What a hard Monday to come to when the weekend was so lovely despite the terrible pollen that is doing naughty things to my nose, eyes and throat.
On Friday I left work early and my husband was feeling under the weather. So I took the boys on a long walk and explored. It was spontaneous (which I am not) and fun! Our neighborhood is not really adventurous but we found flowers and sticks and fire hydrants oh my! At times we sat on the sidewalk and sang a song. Or just talked. By the time we got home we were late starting the bedtime routine. But I was okay with it. My boys were too.
And tomorrow, Tuesday, my husband has a very short little stint on NCIS LA. CBS at 9 PM. It's short and sweet...and in the beginning of the episode, but I'm excited for him. He plays a paparazzi photographer.
