Photo of the Day: A Suggestion for Mac

Okay. I love my macs. Love them. Probably a little too much. But there is one little eensy thing that drives me nuts about my laptop.

The power cord is TOO SHORT! And what I really wish is that they could put the AC adapter receiver thingy (whatever... you know...where you plug the cord into the computer) on BOTH sides. That would be awesome.

Anyway, that's all for now... my little rant is done.

Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous I can't wait!!!

Photo of the Day: Through-Trey's-Eyes Fridays...

Are you sick of my pictures yet? Well, to change things up a bit, I think I'm going to start posting some of Trey's pictures. He has the cutest Fisher Price camera for kids...he loves taking pictures with it... and always begs me to download them to the computer so he can look at them in all their glory.

So why stop there? We shall blogify his pictures as well... (For your information, I just totally made up that word... and I don't care if it doesn't make sense b/c it made me giggle a little).

This was taken back in October when my mom came to visit and we did the Williamsburg touristy thing. This is my mom in the governor's mansion. With swords in the background. Trey was probably very interested in the swords and very not interested in taking a great portrait (sheesh... i mean... come on it's not like he was FOUR or anything). :)


Have a fabulous weekend. See you soon!

Photo of the Day: Driving

I had my camera in the car the other day after our little trip to the park for baseball. So, as we were driving up to Lowe's I decided to, well, snap a picture of the highway. I know, thrilling.

Everyone. This is I-64. I-64. This is everyone.

** Edited to Add ** okay... I realized after I posted this I might need to clarify just one little thing... I WASN'T DRIVING... sheesh folks. DJ was driving. I was a very safely buckled in passenger. Afterall, safety first. I'm a safety girl! (omg. what movie was that from... 'I'm a safety girl...' anyone?)

Photo of the Day: My Feet

Okay... my shoes. I just bought these moccasin-looking things from Target the other day. Yippee.

I can't begin to tell you how badly I need new shoes. I mean really. Let me see if I can justify my shoe patheticness...

1) I just got back from living on sub-tropical island... I own about 250 pairs of flip-flops...
2) I haven't worked in an office in a YEAR (ohmigod i just freaked a little there - I've worked for as long as I can remember... I started babysitting in the 5th grade...) I have little need for heels anymore. I miss them. Terribly. I still look at them in shoe stores and drool.
3) Pregnancy = bigger feet. Who knew. So even the old shoes that I DO have (which are horribly out of fashion, but hey)...they...uh...don't freakin' fit.

So there. Yay. Three good reasons for me to go shoe-shopping!

Until next time,

Photo of the Day: Office Supplies

So this might be more like PHOTOS of the day...

Here's an admission for you: I'm obsessed with office supplies. I could spend all day in a Staples or Office Depot or Office Max... or all three.

Even Target. So the other day we were getting "a few things" to help me get organized (finally) and I went just a bit nuts. Not really, in the grand scheme of things, but for me...

My splurge:

A LABEL MAKER!!!!!!!!!! Do you guys understand just how exciting this is?! I'm like Monica on Friends...

My fun new shelving.

Pretty paperclips... I love paperclips.

And last, but not least, my desk is not complete without some kind of caffeinated beverage sitting square in front of my face. Today, Coke Zero. Mmmm.

Until next time,

Sneak Peek | Connor & Reid | Hampton, VA Family Photography

Getting ready for this shoot, Mom and I hemmed and hawed about possibly rescheduling due to the cold. Yes, it's been cold and windy here and both of us wanted to get some shots outside. In the end, we decided to give it a go... and I'm SO glad we did. In one of our emails, mom casually mentioned that, even if it's nasty outside there's a sunroom in their house that gets pretty good light.

I secretly did a little jig. Yes, mom, I kinda played it off in the email, but the words 'sunroom' and 'good light' made me freak out in delight a little. Or a lot. But whatever. I have some pride that I'd like to keep for the time being.

Anyway, yes it was a bit brisk, but the sun was shining and her sunroom (and entire house by the way) was AMAZING!

Here are some of my favorites so far... not done editing all the pics yet... I'm floored by this family. Truly.

Okay, I'll shutup now.

Sweet Connor. It took him a second to warm up to me. Just a second though. We played with trains and airplanes and he showed me his Nemo video. Then, I think, we were buds.

See. That's a smile for a bud. Score! By the way, do you see those gorgeous eyes? Whole family had 'em. It's just not fair... :)

Reid. Reid loves his mommy. Oh man. He would watch her like a hawk... and he has the most adorable grin and giggle. And, again, the eyes. Wow.

Look at this mom. She is gorgeous. No wonder these boys are so cute! I love this shot... that's Connor all hidden behind her. This was one of those "mom" looks like 'I give up... he's a nut...but I love him.' And I caught it. Go me! It's perfect. Really one of my favorites.

While we were outside we played a bit on their awesome playground in the backyard. This was the pirate ship (see dad being a pirate there)...

And we did some swinging.

But this is my favorite so far. In that to-die-for sunroom. Here again we have one of those family photos that tells a story about this family. Beautiful... in all aspects.

This was good.

Mom, more for you soon! Keep an eye on your inbox :)

Photo of the Day: My Baby's Feet

I love baby feet. I have an obsession with baby feet. I like to kiss them. Nibble the toes. Tickle them. I can't help it, really.

Noah's feet are absolutely edible. Every little inch of his body is edible, but his feet, cheeks and chunky thighs are the best.

He's getting bigger and bigger by the second and I'm not going to be able to cuddle and nuzzle with him much longer... he's almost one now. The days are numbered... it goes by so fast.

Next up... shoot pics!
