Sweet Chocolate

Today’s photo-a-day challenge was sweet. As close as it is to fair, you would think that I’d have lots of sweet things to photograph, but I only came up with one really good one – a close up of some of my bulk chocolate. Yum! I love this Callebaut chocolate.  It comes to me in…

Celebrate

Yesterday’s image theme from The Idea Room was “Celebrate”.  What better day to photograph celebration than a national holiday? I had a pretty good one myself.  I spent most of the day out at my mom’s house teaching my youngest sister how to make my Bread and Butter Pickles. In the evening, my husband and…

Seeing Red

Today is the 3rd day of the July Photo-a-Day Challenge from The Idea Room.  I’m super happy that today’s challenge was something that I could easily do, even if it’s gloomy out, which of course it is.  Whoever planned all of this gloomy weather in the middle of my summer is seriously making me sad.…

First Week of Summer

I’ve survived the first week of my Summer of No Pants without cheating.  However, I did discover that almost all of my skirts and dresses are dressier work styles.  I don’t have too much in my closet that’s casual, at least not without putting on pants.  I feel like I should totally use this as…

The Chiropractor Demands Flats

As many of you know, I love shoes.  I absolutely adore them.  Having a great pair of shoes always makes me feel fabulous.  However, my chiropractor seems to disagree with me about how amazing some of my shoes are.  For some reason he seems to think that my 3 and 4 inch heels are a…

I took a little time out to watch some trailers for upcoming movies the other day, and found one for a documentary that should be coming out soon. The title? A Girl and a Gun. My husband and I both own guns, we even have conceal and carry permits, tho I have not had much…
