A little time to myself...

This past weekend I had the opportunity to have some much needed girl time. An old friend from high school came down to spend some time with me and my men went to visit their Nana (my hubby's mom). My friend and I spent most of our day antique shopping and stopped to grab a bite to eat. We then headed home and did a little bit of crafting and watch Pride and Prejudice. It was very nice to be able to visit with her and to not be surrounded by toys and boys. I rarely get time away from my family, not that I want to run away or be without them, but sometimes its nice to be with company that "gets"you and can talk about things other than toy cars and winning video games. It is also nice to not always be "on", no dishes, laundry or refereeing. We didn't even cook, just a frozen pizza for dinner and ice cream for dessert

We had a nice time during our girls friend had to leave early the next morning, as duty calls for us mommies, however my men were not due back until late afternoon. So, not only did I get much needed girl time, I got me time! I did a whole lot of nothing, I watched movies without interruption and took a nap. I even took some time to take a few pictures without little fingers moving in and knocking over my setups or jumping on my back right as I click the shutter.

My girl time and me time was nice and very much needed, but it was equally rewarding when tiny feet ran into the house and jumped into my arms. Their warm embraces and affectionate words just made me love them even more!

Hope you are having a good week,

Traffic Jams and Speed Races

The last few days I've been so busy working on the business side of my phoography that I have hardly picked up my actual camera. I have however utilized my iPhone to get some fun shots of my boys cars. I love seeing the lines they make and the senarios they set up! A few days ago there was a traffic jam on the way from my oldest's room into my youngest's room. Today we had sprint races and a huge crowd showed up to watch!

 It's nice to have my phone around to capture fun stuff like this! I played around with these in the free Instagram app on my iPhone, do you guys have photography apps on your iPhones? Which on is your favorite?

Help me please!!!

Hey everyone! I am currently in the process of trying to narrow down some of my favorite portraits to four, but it is just so hard!! I managed to narrow it down enough to compile them in a poll and ask you to help me....would you? Please, help me out? You can vote for four of your's hard criticizing your own work...sometimes I like one of my pieces and my husband doesn't, so this poll is a mixture of some of my favorites and some of his, thanks for helping me out!

A little photo challenge love!

So, it's almost Valentine's day so why not jump on the love band wagon and get all mushy! Ok so I'm not going to get mushy, but I did want to share some love and heart theme photos!

That one little word...LOVE

A few days ago I heard my little munchkins giggling and playing together, with out throwing, I snuck in and tried to get some evidence that they DO play nice. I got busted and the oldest took off once he realized I had my camera. My youngest was playing with his ABC puzzle and thought it would be fun to get a few shots, plus I just like the two different perspectives of him playing!

You drive me crazy! {6/52}

I'm calling this one, you drive me crazy! Because these little suckers do just that, they are everywhere and often find my feet when I least expect it. You'd think by now I'd consider not always going barefoot! My son is always lining them up making rows and patterns, so  I thought I would too. Even though they are a hazard to my feet, watching him play with time or seeing them left behind after a day of play always makes me smile!


Challenge/theme: Hearts

I hope you all have wonderful Valentine day weekends! Filled with lots of love from and for all the loved one's in your life! P.S. head on over to Project64: Out of the Box, we just announced a monthly winner and will open the link up on Sunday for your Apricot isnspired photos!

Happy Vday weekend!
