10 on Tuesday

Because Karli inspired me...here are my 10 random thoughts on this Tuesday.

1) Saturday Leo, Nic and I went to the beach! It was so nice to be a short (relatively, 1 hour) drive away. Nic had a blast and we were in our element!  To many more beach trips.

2) My mom and dad came up for the weekend (mind you they are divorced) together. LOL.  My dad the photographer failed to get a picture of the family (Leo, Nic and I) on Easter..oh well.

3) May is going to be CRAZY!! This weekend we are driving to Miami for a birthday party, next week a business trip for me for a couple of days, Mother's Day weekend the following, friends coming up to visit the next, Leo leaves for a business trip the following week, I have a training all that same week, then I will meet him in London for a vacation, and then the month is over!! I'm tired just thinking about it. But yeah for going back to Europe!! Here is one taken in London the last time we went.

4) some sky shots I took last week but haven't shared.

5) Nic is so much fun I'm really enjoying him right now.  He talks and sings all day and has such a vivid imagination.  I LOVE HIM!!

6)I feel pretty adjusted to our new life in FL.  The commute still blows but I get home most days a little after 5pm so not so bad.

7) Remember last week I blogged about getting Nic's photo books up to date, well I finished and they arrived yesterday! I love them.  They turned out really good and I'm glad to have it off my mind.

8)I volunteered to take the office pictures for our intranet tomorrow.  Wish me luck, some are really hard to please.

9)My trip to Napa Valley/San Francisco is booked!! This is a girls only trip w/ my BFF, Tiana and my sister Caro late June.  My BFF and I are turning 30 and wanted to make it special.  My sis is coming along b/c we are the 3 Amigas and I couldn't imagine a trip like this without her!

10) and that is all I got! have a great Tuesday and rest of the week...

By Mother's Day...

I'm putting this out there because I want to be held accountable.  By Mother's Day I want to have ordered Nic's 1st and 2nd year photo books.  I've been putting this off for two years and the longer I wait the longer it will take.  So instead of wasting my time checking facebook, SPN (photo forum), NC Bump (baby forum) or blogging I will be working on his picture books at night.  Now that it is out there, I hope I can get it done!!  And what is post without a picture?  Here is Nic pouting.  He looks cute even when he is sad.

3rd week and counting

I only picked up my camera a few times but when I did I tried to complete the scavenger hunt. Here are my interpretations.

Bedroom (archive but not shared yet)

I took this picture the week before we moved from Raleigh.  I love his nursery and so does he.

Off in the Distance

We have wildlife in our backyard and one day this week, there was this really big bird (thanks Google-a gray heron). He kept walking away but it stood still enough for me to take it's picture. I used my 55-250mm lens, I really like this lens for these things. 


These are Nic's rubber duckies. The "tiny" is called baby ducky and the big one is mama duck (aren't we creative).


I wanted to find stripes in "nature" and then I remembered my cool cactus plant.  I'm not sure what it is called but it is the easiest plant ever.  I repotted it when we moved and it has grown and it is really healthy.

High Key

My computer that has PSE is out of commission and I didn't have time to really shoot a high key style photo so instead I took a picture of high "keys".  I hung them from my garage door and took a picture from below. LOL

I hope you have enjoyed my interpretations.
