My New Lens

I have the most awesome man in the world. He just got me the 50mm lens I wanted for Christmas. I'm so retardedly lucky.

Anyway, here's a couple of quick shots I took with it, still getting used to the fixed lens, but it's spectacular and I'm in deep love.

Okay, so as a Christmas gift for my scrappin' friends, I have made a 5x7 card sized collage for all of those awesome Christmas pics you'll be taking, just think what cute Thank You notes you can make!!
Here is an example of my New Year's Card made with the template.
This is for Photoshop, dudettes. Click here to download!

My Boys

So, I was going to take Yorick to the park today to get some cute pics since I'm so annoyed with the very expensive, very ugly Santa pic that we had done yesterday... but it rained and rained all day. 
So while Yorick was napping, I took some shots of Phineas by the window and then Yorick got up and joined in. His face looks like that because he fell asleep on the carpet in his room. ;)

and yes, they're the same pics as on my facebook, I just like sharing, okay?

The world's biggest mess ensued.

Long time no blog!! I know, I know, I suck.
The holidays have me really down. And not for the reasons you might think (or maybe they are the reasons you think)... I really like doing stuff for my friends during the holidays, baking, entertaining, etc and being so far away from home, this makes it nearly impossible. I just want to be settled so much, Josh has always felt like home to me from the moment he kissed me, but being so far from Orange County has made me really homesick. I'd really like to find a cute little house to fix up and call our own and money sucks right now.

I love giving stuff for the holidays and money is so tight right now that it's making it nearly impossible and this just... makes me depressed and a little crazy. Being a Sahm is rewarding in it's very special and unique way, but it wreaks havoc on our bank account. 

Hopefully I'll just keep learning about my gorgeous hobby and maybe, maybe maybe we'll make a little extra income from it in the near future. 

I've been sifting through some professional photography sites and it makes me cringe just thinking about posting my stuff, but I have to show off my beautiful boys somehow!! This is some shots from this morning that I took:

TFL!! We'll be down in SoCal on the 23rd or 24th and we'll likely stay until probably the 29th? I'll see you guys then!!

Dear Adam and Josh,

Our birdie nest

Thought I'd share a pic of our nest... we put the crib in our room to make more room for the kids... but neither of them will sleep in there, still, they both want on our bed. But how cute is it?

Halloween Party

Thanks so much everyone who came and made our Halloween party so successful!!! We'll definitely be doing a theme every year from now on, we had a great time! It was a huge hit and we're tired, but happy girls.

Keep checking the blog for the next couple of days as I add pics and I'll have links to my file as soon as I'm done editing. (the light was a little too low, so most of the pics are a  little blurry, but we'll see what I can do!)

Later, boobs.
