Taking it one day at a time.

July 31st, 2008

I am truly my father's daughter. Put a great camera in my hands and I can't get enough!

I accompanied hubby to Bellingham and while he was working I wandered around and took photos, then I messed with most of them in editing. I have fun taking the photos, but I didn't say I'm that good at it yet!

laughing at myself...

I just stopped and thought about what I ate for dinner tonight...
1. peanut butter & jelly sandwich
2. a little cup of applesauce
3. a glass of rose

Sounds like the dinner of an alcoholic 8 year old.

60 years together...

Hubby's grandparents recently celebrated their 60th anniversary. 60 YEARS! I am inspired by their committment to each other and their family. They have been surrogate grandparents to me and I will forever be grateful for the way they welcomed me into their family.

I had fun editing this photo on Flickr. This is the cross processed feature. I love how it looks old fashioned...

happy 60th anniversary!

Here's their dog penny wenny "boosted" in editing...

graduation season

My brother and I both had a commencement this year. Sean graduated from high school and I walked to receive my masters. The commencement was in June and I'm not really done until tomorrow (july 24th) but I got to walk anyway. The best part is that this time, I was "hooded" by one of my professors. Not many people in my program walk, but I see as a once in a lifetime opportunity and a chance for my hubby, my parents, and my in-laws to see what their love and support of me has helped me accomplish. Sean was in Cabo at the time, but I know he would have been there if he could...

tourist in my own city...

The whole summer could go by without taking a trip to Pike Place Market. I love it down there...but you have to go in with patience and a lot of time to spend. There were two cruise ships docked, so that a lot of white hairs wandering through the market very sloooooowly. Mom and I decided to walk down to the market before seeing Mamma Mia downtown. (BTW...GREAT MOVIE, but it was a little awkward watching Colin Firth & Pierce Brosnan sing)

It was fun being a tourist at home...I plan to go back soon. The prices are cheaper than the grocery store now and much better quality!

It's been a long time!

I have been so uber-busy that I have totally neglected my blog and the 3 people who read it! (Hi Rachel!) I always think about it, but never get there. I was on Flickr the other day and made a few mosaics of my current fashion obsessions...
Think of this as an accessory montage of the last few months that I've been away...

First is belts, I have been scooping them up at thrift stores like crazy!
Belt Montage...

Next is bags...can you ever have enough? Lately I'm all about these vintage ones with the quilting and chain straps...
Bag Montage...

This one is my absolute favorite:
another thrifted quilted chain bag

I found a real vintage Chanel bag that looks just like it (except for the whole real leather thing)I found this photo at bagborrowsteal.com. Mine was $7 and this bag can be rented for only $213/week! I can't even imagine...

Last is jewelry...
Jewelry Montage...

I have to add this necklace I got in Maui also...

I'll try not to be a stranger! Only 5 weeks of school left!

I lost some weight...

...not the kind I was hoping for, but I feel lighter!

The joke lost on 2nd graders...

They all answered Today's Question, but not one of them got my joke. Not one even tried to correct me and say that "Good" shouldn't be capitalized. Maybe I need to review capitalization...

On a side note...as you can see in the picture the oi/oy sound was the sound of the week. One child tried to give an example of this sound by raising his hand and saying "oil cookie." After looking at him puzzled, another boy interpreted...he was saying "Oreo cookie". If you say "oil" enough times, it does sound like a 7 year old with a slight speech problem saying Oreo...just another day on the job! :)
