Kooper is a ham!

As Kooper was getting into everything this morning (i.e. mommy one step forward two steps back) he proceeded to get into the desk drawer in the kitchen and try on my old glasses.  What a ham!  You make me laugh little man!  Love, Mommy

I was bad this week and didn't take many pictures of my outfits.  I guess it gets a little daunting having to take a picture everyday and also before I look run over and hung up wet!  We also had warm weather this week and it made me quite grumpy.  I think I need to take a break from looking at every ones blogs with their pictures of great outfits.  It makes me want to go shopping and buy a whole new wardrobe.  I love looking at Lisa Leonard's blog, she has great looks and usually shops at target.  I wore something similar to what she wore last week and didn't take a picture, I wore my pearls and Lisa Leonard necklace with a cardigan and sheer ruffled tank with skinny jean it was cute I just wish I had some cool boots because I felt a little June Cleaver with the pearls and cardi.  I ordered some boots from target online, they were having buy one get one 1/2 off and free shipping!  Here are two pics that's all I took!  Have a great holiday weekend!  Steph

I did a few pictures from some scrapbook pages I did recently.

I did some sewing along with embossing the chipboard embelishment

playing outside

I'm having a weekend of free photography information-i.e. free class on lighting at ritz from my camera purchase which I was the only student-good for me, I had a lot of questions.  Now I'm watching Tamara Lackey on creative live.  It's a free live broadcast online.  So I'm having fun, although I was playing with my camera with my selective focus and now I have the black squares in my view finder all the time and having trouble seeing the red dot light up to see where the focus is at.  errgg!  So I might be going up to the mall and having a talk with Maurice at ritz camera. Here are some pics of the boys playing outside this late morning.  Have a great day!

OK so here it goes, this is what I wore this week minus lazy no makeup Sunday, also forgot to take pictures on Monday, it was a cute outfit so maybe I will wear it next week since I really didn't see anyone but the grocery store clerks!  They say that the camera adds 10 lbs, is that so with camera snapshots?  One of the benefits with taking pictures of one self is that I can see the fit of my clothing.  The cream tee with the blush cardigan- I realized it needed to be more fitted so I didn't look fat with ginormous boobs, so I took it in a little on the sides so we will see how that fits.  Also the jeans that I wore with a blue sweater were not fitted that well for my body type.  I was just glad that I could fit into them again. So I am liked up to Lindsey @

Lizard Lips

That's what my dad would always say when we would ask "what's for dinner?"  My boys have finally become boys, they caught their first lizard.  I was surprised they wanted to catch them as Kyle won't even kill a bug!  I don't understand that, he had shoes on!  That's why god gave me 3 boys so I don't have to ever kill another bug-right?!  In due time they will kill anything that moves! Have a great day! steph

Halloween 2010-The superhero Family

We all dressed up for Halloween this year-even me- so we were the superhero family.  Here are some pics so you can see.  I wasn't happy about the short dress.  I felt naked, even with hose(which I had to go out and buy because who wears pantie hose) and bike shorts.  We had the neighborhood trunk or treat and I decorated my trunk/table.  Last year I won first prize but this year other people really stepped it up.  Next year I will step up or just be a guest and enjoy.  I guess I have all year to decide.
