October 2009


That’s how old Noah is today. He’s gone from this…

…to this…

…in the blink of an eye.

It was a great day. Noah’s off for Teacher’s Convention, so we took advantage of a weekday afternoon to have his birthday party at a local bowling alley. All I need […]

You Capture: Autumn

I enjoyed the assignment this week. I’ve always loved the colors on the trees at this time of year. And when Beth suggested we take a drive and capture something new, I took advantage. It was a beautifully sunny day here last Saturday, just begging for me to head out for a […]

You Capture: Technology

I really wasn’t sure if I felt like participating this week. I’ve been sick, so I’m just not up to full speed. Then I thought about the assignment, Technology, a little more, and realized I had a good idea.

I watch a lot of TV. A. LOT. I like it, okay? And […]

You Capture: Still Life

I have about a million pictures to edit from our awesome weekend in Las Vegas, and I’m just not that excited to do it. I’ve been recovering from the weekend, sleeping whenever possible. I haven’t even taken my camera out of the bag since Sunday. I think I just needed […]

7 Days: 7 Sassy Saj

While at the Neon Museum today, we found this old sign that says “Sassy Sally” and I figured it was the perfect backdrop for my last day of 7 Days!

We’re off to see Blue Man Group tonight! Can’t wait!


7 Days: 5 and 6

Seeing as I was in full-stress mode yesterday preparing for our awesome weekend in Las Vegas, I forgot to post this cool picture I took yesterday for 7 Days. The theme was “night” so I took my chances.

That’s my finger in the bottom left corner, trying to point to the North Star. It’s […]

You Capture: The color red

It’s You Capture day, and I actually planned ahead as I’m heading out to Las Vegas for a long weekend with the hubby, my parents, my brother and sister-in-law, my aunt, and other friends and family members of my cousin’s to celebrate his 40th birthday. It should be a great […]

7 Days:4 Painting my toes

As the countdown continues (the plane leaves in approx. 33 hours!), I keep preparing for our departure to Fabulous Las Vegas. One more thing to cross off the list-painting my toenails.

The stress is building, but as Andy put it tonight, we can’t wait to sleep in while we’re on vacation!


7 Days:3 Running

I really try my best to get my booty out of bed in the morning to go running. It’s much harder at this time of year as it’s still dark for about half of my run. So here’s how I dress for a run around my neighborhood at o’dark thirty.

This was […]

7 Days: Day 2 Writing

I had taken a different shot early today, so proud of myself for getting a head start on this daily task. I guess I’ll save it for tomorrow, though that might be cheating a bit. Oh well.

So we did some writing today, in preparation for Noah’s upcoming 6th birthday. (Where does the time go???) […]
