Party Blowouts!

March 11, 2011
On Tuesday, I shared a few shots from the “surprise” birthday party I attended last weekend. I’ll share a couple more shots on Sunday, but I thought these were a fun way to celebrate the coming of FRIDAY!The kids found these “party blowouts” (I had to look them up to figure out what exactly they were called). They were having so much fun that I pulled out my camera to photograph them. This of course really brought out their inner animals as they jumped directly in front of my camera making it very difficult to focus. Of course, these are simply snapshots…so...

Vloggin’ Vednesdays: My Favorite Room...

March 09, 2011
So this week, I’m trying something new by using my 7D’s video function. I need to practice my focus while video taping…and I could really use a lot more light. I also wish I had done something better with my hair…and my sweater keeps riding up. Oh, and just in case you weren’t sure that I have a “southern accent,” I definitely have one! Alright…enough critizing myself – I hope you enjoyed my vlog today. If you want to join us for future Vloggin’ Vednesday Episodes, here’s what’s coming up:Vednesday, March 16th:...
