22/366: Special Guest

We went to a local church to hear their guest speaker - Marty Roe of Diamond Rio. He was there with his wife and daughter. They shared their testimony and led some music. He also performed "Beautiful Mess" and a beautiful song that his wife wrote. She sang the duet with him, she has a lovely voice as well - and so does their daughter. Great day :)

Good food, total silliness, laughing until your sides hurt...that's game night with our friends :)

18/366: Evolution

My husband bought me a new camera last Sunday and it arrived today via UPS. It is the Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a Canon 24-105L series lens, and the Canon 430ExII speedlight (not pictured). I'm tickled pink y'all - he's definitely Hubby of the Year for this one :-D

the one on the left is my first dslr - Canon EOS Rebel xti, followed by my Canon EOS 50D and then the new one.  Have had a lot of fun with this line-up and looking forward to more.

15/366: Road Trip

It was an otherwise ordinary Sunday. Church, then lunch, then my husband gassed up my truck for me, and then leaving Sam's club - instead of getting on I40E to head home, he got on I40W towards Nashville. I had no idea where we were going, but he's prone to be spontaneous and I have learned to enjoy the ride and not ask questions. Our destination proved, once again, that he will do anything in the world for me. :) More to come.

12/366: And Rain Turns to Snow

Sitting inside my warm house, watching the snow fall through my window - it doesn't get much better than that, friends :)

9/366: Better than the weather channel

If you want to know what the weather is, my animals are more accurate and dependable than the local weather. I can always tell if it's unpleasant weather by the fact that my dog not only won't come out from under his blanket, but he won't make eye contact with me because he doesn't want to go out :)  My cat spent most of this chilly, wet day on her blanket on the couch.

8/366: By the Light of the Full Moon

This was tricky. It's darker than the picture shows (it was taken around midnight), because this is a 30 second exposure. I had to use the Brinkmann spot to shine on the trees so I could get them in focus. Turned out almost like I was hoping :)

6/366: Protection

My new "RooCase" was delivered today. I had a Belkin case to start off with but it was pretty shoddy. This one is much better, fits perfect, very sturdy, and PINK :)  I'm so relieved to finally have a good case to protect my Tab.

5/366: Coffee Girls

Every Thursday while school is in session, it's all about the donuts. Well, for me anyway, because that's what I always bring to "Coffee Girls". A good friend graciously opens her home to us to meet, eat, and have some "adult" conversation. 
Today we played a game called "Boxers or Briefs" - lots of fun and a lot of laughing. We all look forward to Thursdays :)

4/366: Improvise

I was craving some peanut butter kiss cookies, but had no kisses. (they don't last long at ALL in this house)

I did have this though...necessity is a mother too ;-)

3/366: New Gadgets

A post-Christmas surprise from my dear hubby. We had looked at the ipad, but I am so glad he surprised me with the Galaxy Tab instead. After reading the reviews and doing a side-by-side of the two, the tab blows the ipad out of the water. Love it, and love him <3
