Snapshots // 2.17.14 // iPhone Edition

With all the snow we've gotten the last 2 months, I haven't been out doing a lot of shooting with my "real" camera. I still take pictures about everyday with my iPhone. Here's a selection from last week.
Every fresh snow, we end up with the same set of bunny tracks. I guess he's a creature of habit & our yard is in his path....or maybe he juste likes to visit my flamingos. I can't say I'd blame him. They look darn cute in the snow. I should probably knit them some scarves though...


Lately // and a Giveaway!

You guys, right now my internet is on the fritz . I have to get on while it decides it wants to work &, hopefully, Time Warner can fix it in the morning. I haven't been posting a lot lately because, frankly, I'm in a funk. I've spent most of the week on the verge of tears and I would really like to hibernate. I haven't been feeling well and I know that's part of it. Also, I'm just depressed. I'm trying to shake it off, but it's taking more effort than usual and it leaves little motivation for much else. Anyway, this is what I've been up to lately.

Watching: Family Ties on Netflix...and the Olympics

You guys, I was 2 when this show came out & I remember watching the later seasons with my parents growing up. I did not realize how ground-breaking it was! Yes, it's a family comedy. But, they covered some pretty heavy issues starting with the pilot. I'm really enjoying it. It's a nice glimpse into actual 80's fashion too. Unfortunately, everything Mallory wears is the stuff I hated being made to wear as a kid. I also can't figure out why they dressed Jennifer like a Cabbage Patch Kid.

Also, I'm nerding out over the Olympics. I always do. I particularly enjoy watching the snowboarders. First, I'm amazed at their talent. I tend to yell "How are they even doing that?!" a lot during those events. I especially like that it's a "new" sport and all of the tricks were named by the snowboarders themselves. I think it's hilarious to listen to the sportscaster use the made-up names. I'm easily amused. I know.


Conversation #2

Here is a conversation I had with my sister via text.

I have no reason to believe I'm pregnant; but I consider her dream a step in the right direction. I had 2 dreams that she was pregnant with her now 12 year old daughter for no reason. I knew she'd be a girl too. I like to think that we're connected. Fingers crossed...and I guess Chloe is off the list.


Things You Might Want to Know

Today's post is a little late. I've been fighting a cold, so things got backed up over here. 
I wanted to wrap up "Getting to Know Me" week by updating my FAQ page with some things you might want to know about me and this blog. You can click the FAQ at the top of the page or just click here. Thanks for reading!


11 Things

I figured it'd be fun to join in with Chelsey & do her 11 question meme. Make sure to stop by & see her 11 questions at The Paper Mama too!

Here are her 11 questions & my answers:

1. Are you a cat or dog person? Or, bird person?
Cat. They're clean & they like to nap.
2. What was your favorite food as a kid? Is it the same, or has it changed as an adult?
Pretty sure it's always been pizza.
3. What is your favorite hobby?
Photography 4-ever
4. If you HAD to move to a different state (or country) where would it be?
I think Colorado. I like the idea of low humidity & tons of snow in the winter. I should probably go there sometime.
5. Are you a winter or summer person?
Fall, actually. If I had to choose between winter & summer, I guess it'd be winter because of sweaters & snow.
6. What makes you happy?
Kittens, babies, jammies, sunshine, cake, long naps...


We'd Probably Be Friends // Getting to Know Me

This week I want to take the opportunity to tell you more about myself. I share my recipes, DIY's, and even really personal life events; but I really don't think I've shared who I am. I plan to post a series of fun stuff this week to let you in on the real me.

This is the kind of thing I text Josh from the next room.

This first post was inspired by Dani of Sometimes Sweet. I know I'm a little late to this party, but here goes!

We'd probably be friends if...
