My sweet dh...

Brought home a surprise the other night.... the Plain White T's CD! Wasn't that nice? He noticed that I had been listening to their song from their website, and brought the album home for me!
He made a statement that these guys were not the best looking... but I also pointed out to him that it looked like their portraits were taken with a very wide angle lens, distorting their features. I don't know if this was the photographer's intent or not, but I am very sure that these guys look much different in person!
It's a fun album.... definitely subjects pertainant to the late teen to twenty-ish crowd!

Whew! I can share...

Well, I can finally share the second bit of news.... I am so happy that Christina and Mackey at Scraplovers have asked me to serve another year at their site! I really love it over there!

A DT call will be announced soon to fill the vacant slots! They have restructured the whole DT design, and it is great!!!

My baby is 2 today!

It seems like it was just last summer that she was born! I can't believe she's 2 already!!! We are going to take her somewhere fun for dinner....

We sang happy birthday this morning and she started blowing (the candles, of course, even though there was no cake for breakfast!) And then she says, "Eat cake!!!" LOL!!!!!
The first picture was taken out by the new house. She found this ring of bark on the ground and was pretending that it was real jewelry! And the second was at a friend's birthday party!

Today was a good day!

I found something that I thought I had lost.... my Lemonheads "It's a Shame About Ray" CD!!! I bought it before I began college, and I really missed it! Well, somehow, it found its way into a Smiths CD case, which I discovered this morning.

I have been on a nostalgic music craving for some old school alternative 80's rock! So I dredeged through my extensive Smiths collection and decided to take a greatest hits CD with me for my morning commute. I still love the music, but man, oh, man.... I was a most self-tortured teenager! I have forgotten how sad Morrissey's lyrics really are!

I'll be giving that old Lemonhead's CD a little more love, too!!! Oh, happy day!

Have you heard of these guys?

It's my favorite new band.... Plain White Tees! They have this amazingly sweet song called "Hey There Delilah" that plays only on our local Richmond station Y101. I normally don't listen to this station all the time, but it's one of my preset stations, and I happened to hear this song. I was hooked instantly!

Here's a link to the band's website, and you can hear it for yourself!!!

They are actually doing a Tiffany-like mall tour and will be at a mall that's not even 5 minutes from my house in August! Just don't know if I want to fight the teeny boppers to see them, though!!!

Scrabook Answers = Sassy

Remember Sassy magazine? How different and fun and hip and cool it was? I was a child of the 80's..... emerging into adulthood in the 90's.... and I remember it well. I was a Seventeen subscriber, and my best friend in middle school was a Sassy subscriber. I always read about the cool new bands in this magazine, and found clothes that were things I would really wear!!! (I was one of those semi-goth, alternative, drama chicks in school... even though I cheered, too!)

So, anyway.... when Scrapbook Answers debuted, I was very excited! And right away I saw it as the Sassy of the scrabooking industry. It was as rebellious of a scrapbook magazine as Sassy was as a teen girl fashion magazine. The writers at Scrapbook Answers let us in on their personas, lent their voices to their articles, and dared to discuss products with honesty. I loved that magazine!

But, alas, their run was much too short.... just like Sassy. But die hard fans will still remember them!

Wow! A photographer's job is TOUGH!!!!

So, yesterday, I embarked on a new adventure. My dear friend Tisha asked be to help her shoot a wedding. Granted, I knew the bride and actually referred the bride to Tisha, but I was so honored that Tisha trusted me enough to help her with this!

Anyway, I realized many things. I know that I'm not even close to being good enough to shoot an event so important on my own (not that I really had plans to, anyway!), that I need to be more assertive during shoots (I'm not the bossiest of people... but I need to definitely take on a new persona if I do this again!), and that my camera (Canon XTi) has multiple limitations. Oh.... and that Tisha is one fantastic photographer!!! (well, we already knew that!!!). It was so much fun just to watch her work!

So, I learned a TON about myself and my camera.... and had lots of fun, too! I just hope Tisha will let me try again!!!
