10 on Wednesday (because my hand cramped up from typing our story yesterday)

1. I am finally back from Oregon after 3 and a half weeks. It was wonderful. The only thing that could have made it better was to have had Terry with me the whole time, not just for the last week.

2. I mention on facebook last week that the AMAZING photographer Jeanna Hayes is offering classes for all level of photographers and you should sign up. I think you have until tomorrow to sign up. All of the info can be found HERE. I will be going on the field trip, I hope to see you all there!!

3. I had a lot of fun playing around with and learning to use my off camera flash. Here is some of the stuff I did.


4. I really slacked off on blogging in Oregon, I had big plans to blog tons but I just was lazy. I didn't really even take that many pictures. I think because I go to the ranch for 2-3 weeks every summer it's kinda been there done that but I need to not take that attitude because my kids change every year and that is what I need to capture about the place.

5. You guys really seemed to like the "Story Of Us" yesterday. It has now been thoroughly revealed to the blogging world what a complete dork I am (as if I hadn't already.) I had 84 unique hits on the blog and 116 page views. But somehow only had 5 comments. How did that happen? Show me the love people, even if it's anonymous, I still like to hear what you think!!

6. I really need to buy a good piano for my boys. Ours is on it's last leg and I seem to be spending more money to keep it in tune than I should. So if there is anyone out there that would like to be a benefactor for my boys and donate a piano (it doesn't have to be new, just will hold a tune for more than 3 months) I would be eternally grateful.

7. I just realized I never did a June recap for my Project:365. I am missing the first 3 days because they are on my other computer and I am to lazy to go dig them out!!

8. I managed to make it through the winter without getting sick only to now have my 3rd cold since April. Whats up with that? I went to buy Zycam nasal swabs and they DON'T HAVE THEM ANYMORE...ARE YOU KIDDING ME. Those things were the best. My mom thinks the "they's" have something t so with it! If you are confused about who the "they's" are let me know and I'll see if I can get my father-in-law to guest post a blog about who the "they's" are!!

9. I know I am the last person on the planet to discover Pandora...well maybe not the las, little Ming Cho in the rice fields of China may not have heard about it yet...but whoa, how cool is that. You just pick what kind of music you like and it plays it for you for FREE. You can't beat free in this economy!!

10. I went shopping in Oregon with my mom and got the cutest $12 shoes EVER!! I had to do a self portrait with them because they are so stinking cute!! Please pay no attention to the big fat white arms in the picture. OOPS, I think I may have just drawn attention to the very thing I don't want you to look at, now you are looking more and more because I keep talking about my fat white arms. I'm shutting up now!

Have fun on the field trip, I'll be in San Diego. Wished I could go.
Looks like you had fun in Oregon, and did some cool things with your flash. Glad you're back, sorry your sick again. No fun.

Great pictures!!!

Melanie said...

Love the shoes! Isn't Pandora cool? I think my boys showed it to me a year or two ago. It is great for me especially because I don't have an ipod!

Janae said...

So, the shoes are very cute, and so are your arms. I know about Pandora but, have never learned how to use it correctly. For instance, when do you turn Pandora on? When on the computer, etc.? Also, how do you know how many hits you got from your last post? I don't know how to do that either...sorry to be so full of questions!
Also, love all the photos:)

Staci Leach said...

Darci Buhl said...

So your little love story is so cute. You should make a book just out of that!

Oh, and I totally stalk your blog. But i'm horrible at leaving comments. So just know that I love it regardless of my lack of comments:)
