Project 365+ 1 :: Day 41 :: “Random Surprises”

My husband sure knows how to woo me 🙂  I got a small bouquet of flowers which I broke up into 3 vases 🙂  I LOVE arranging flowers!  And they smell yummy…a little herb-y.  I have no idea what kinds of flowers they are, and I’ve never seen the purple ones before.

Project 12 :: February :: “Love”

This month’s theme is Love or Leap.  I think love is the BEST emotion to capture 🙂  It makes my heart sing to see people in love, showing love, being loved.  Today, I went to a 1st Birthday Party for my friend’s daughter.  Lil N played and loved and was loved by everyone!  🙂  Here are 2…both with her daddy…in the bottom one, Dad is only hands, but look at N’s face!!!!  🙂



MCP P12: Resolution pt.2

To add to my first 3 resolutions for 2012, I’m adding 2 more.

#4 Reduce, Reuse, Recycle more diligently.  I’ve been reading this book called, “Go Green, Live Rich” by David Bach.  It’s really well written (which I like), and it has a bunch of facts about how much we, Americans, waste.  Did you know that the entire USA uses 8.2 million barrels of oil/day = amount that Saudia Arabia produces in 1 day (Bach).  That’s absurd!

#5 Save my dollars and cents!  We’re leaving Okinawa…SOON (I promise), and we’re in for a rather rude awakening when we return to the States.  No matter where we go, we’ll need 2 vehicles, a new house (security deposit, 1st/last months rent, pet deposit), traveling money, possible kenneling fees, etc.  It’s going to a very horrible and expensive transition if we don’t start saving now!


MCP Project 12: Resolution

This year I am going to do something different…I’m going to follow through with a photo challenge.  And I found the perfect one!  MCP Project 12 ( fits in so well with my personality and time schedule.  However, today as I was taking my picture for this month’s theme, I realized that it really does not take that much time to snap a few pics and then edit.  Therefore, my resolution is twofold.  I’m also going to try to submit multiple pictures per theme to get my creativity flowing.  So I suppose this first Project 12 entry is three-fold…3-in-1.

#1 – Reduce the amount of clothes I have.  I seriously have TOO MANY.  And I will take the unneeded clothes to the flea market first…then I will donate the rest.  I need to recoup my losses, and I’m saving up for a new lens! 🙂

#2 – Participate in this photo challenge.  It gets the creative juices flowing!

#3 –  Stop procrastinating!

My picture definitely represents all of these resolutions.  Don’t worry, I have more.  It seems I’m meant to make resolutions this year since it keeps coming up!

I edited my picture using MCP Actions’ Mini Quick Pick Looks – “Remember When” (hopefully this mountain will be a thing of the past!)
