New Camera!!

A few week's ago, I decide it was time for a new camera. Now it's not those fancy schmancy Camera's like my sisters have, the Digital SLR. I wish I had the money for one of those. I decided to fool around with the macro setting on my camera. That's probably my favorite setting on my camera. I just love how up close shots look. I hope to have plenty more photo's to come. for now wnjoy theses few.

Spend a day with me Swap

Hello Fellow Swappers!!! I decided to put this swap in my Blog. It wasn't the most eventful day, but it was a busy day none the less.


I made a trip to one of my local Starbucks coffee shops. I have been craving their Pumpkin spice latte for a few days now. I went 2 days in a row for it and both days they were out of their pumpkin Spice mix. So I settled For Peppermint white Chocolate Mocha and a slice of their Holiday Gingerbread. Boy is it Yummy!! it has slivers of crystallized ginger through out it as well as on top.


Got home with my yummy Starbucks. I settled in turned up the heat in the house because I was freezing and drank my coffee. for the next hour I just lazed around and enjoyed my day off from work by catching up on my tivo recordings.


Time to re-touch up my roots. I have been meaning to do this for over a month. I probably had an inch and a half of my natural color showing. ick!!! and being a hair stylist I really needed to recolor and get the roots gone. Yes I'm using a box dye. I know I shouldn't as a stylist, but old habits die hard. I've been using this color for a year and a half.

apparently my glove had a hole in it. I spent probably a good 20 min soaking my finger in color remover and trying to scrub it off but it is still stained.


I just finished putting the color in. now I sit and wait to wash it out. didn't think you would want to see the inside of my shower so I didn't take a picture of that. I ended up playing bejeweled to pass the time. with out my glasses on I can't really do much cause I can't see very well. So the computer was the easiest and only thing I could see. lol

1 pm: I cleaned out my car but I didn't take a picture cause I highly doubt you wanted to see what it looked like. I live in my car practically. I'm always driving places and am always on the go so I carry a lot with me.


Lunch was a little late. I ordered it at 2 while I was trying to get all the pieces out to set up the Christmas Village. But it was so Yummy(seems to be my favorite word today). They call this Pizza "Grandma's Pizza" I'm not so sure why. It has chunks of garlic and chunky sauce and a little bit of cheese. the crust was nice and fluffy as well.


Finally I got the village up. I had a few minor mishaps. Started opening the box upside down and a few pieces fell out. 2 of the people fell out broke at the feet. so now I need to glue them back together. Overall I think the Village came out looking very nice.

4 pm

I decided to sit down and read my book. I love this series. It is classified as young adult, but I find them intriguing. more action in them then the twilight series. Once I finish I can start on the next book which I had to go pick up at the Library.

6 pm

Went to the Library to pick up the items that came in for me. The 4th book in the series I'm reading came in so now I really need to hurry up and read Shadow Kiss. I can't wait to watch The Soloist. it looks like such a good movie.

The rest of my night was spent reading and doing a lil more catch up on tivo. before I decided to head up to bed around 10:30. I was supposed to go out christmas shopping with a friend of mine but those plans were canceled on her part. oh well Maybe today the shopping will get done.

I hope you enjoyd spending a day with me.

It kinda ticks me off that I only ever have 1 person really who comments on my blogs (Thank you Nate). Especially when I can see that certain people I know visited my blog just by the city that appears in my counter on the side. I put effort into my blogs and enjoy seeing comments but I never have any. It would be nice to know sometimes that my family does read my blog and actually enjoyed my post.

Circle of Friends

I love my friends. My friend Nate who I've known since we were babies, gave me this award on his blog. I've never gotten an award for a blog, and its understandable that I haven't cause I hardly blog. But this award is special cause it's about friends. I want to thank you Nate for giving me this award.

Now on to the rules that come along with receiving this award.

1.) grab the award

2.) post it on your blog along with five things you love to do

3.) five others you want to recognize....

So here it goes. 5 things I love to do.

1) Makeup: I love putting makeup on and doing it all fun and fancy. I also love doing other people's makeup. I'd rather do makeup than hair.

2) Music: I love everything about music. I love to sing, play music, dance, go to concerts. Every time I attend a concert an indescribable feeling comes over me. It's kinda like a feeling of warmth, joy, excitement. I can't quite find the right words to describe it.

3) Photography: I love taking pictures. it's a hobby of mine. I wish I had a SLr camera. that would fuel my love of photography even more.

4) Spending time with Rob: I love him. every minute we spend together is precious to me. I never thought I would find someone who loves me and accept all my flaws and medical issues. he truly cares for me and loves me. even if we do nothing and just stay in and watch a movie, I'm perfectly fine with it cause I just love spending quality and precious time with him.

5) Sleeping in: any chance I get I love to sleep in. I just love sleeping late into the day. if only the sun didn't shine directly in my room in the morning and lightn it completely up.

Now if only I could come up with people to give this award to. I don't know many people who actually blog.

I'll give this award to my sisters:

1) Beth @ Observations and such Even though we fought a ton well into our teenage years I love her to death and miss her a lot.

2) Leslie @ Fluff & nonsense My Big sister twin. lol even though their is a big age difference. whenever were out together we sometimes get asked if we are twins.

3) Colleen @ As Is Proper I don't get to see her and her kids much, but her blog keeps me informed. I miss them

and a few friends:

4) Laura @ mendoukusai Don't get to see her that often anymore but she is a great person. We met through Nate years ago at his 13th birthday party. I can't believe I remember that.

and Finally:

5) Nate @ This is how it feels yes I'm putting you in here Nate even though you were the one who nominated me. I love him we've grown up together. it's really been a pleasure knowing him

Their you go. I have finished it. lol

Halloween a month late

I never got around to posting when I said I would. I can't believe how busy I have been. So busy that I only uploaded my Halloween pics a few days ago. Go figure.Rob and I went to Craig's House for his Halloween party. It was a chilly night. NO I did not go around all night in just my costume. I wore a coat most of the night cause it was around 35 degrees out that night.
This is Craig. He was co captain of the kickball team rob plays on.

Of Course I had to post my favorite pic of me and Rob. or should I say Waldo. His costume was a hit not only at the party but also at both of his jobs. People kept on shouting. I found Waldo!!

Me and Jaime. I love her to death.

Shows at Renn Faire

So we only saw a few shows at the Renaissance Fair. First we went to the Mudd Brothers. That pretty much is a glorified mud wrestling show. lol. then we went to The Royal Chess Match. All the Royals Come out for that. It was pretty cool. After The chess match we went to the Dextre Tripp Show. He does fire juggling, knife juggling, He even juggled a chain saw that was on along with an apple and a bowling ball at one time. He used a lot of audience members in he stunts. He had one girl hold a pretzel in her mouth while he was juggling knives and then proceeded to cut the pretzel in half with a flying knife. it was pretty intense.

Here are the Mudd Brothers:

This was a balance trick that the 2 Stupid Guys(yes that's the name of the act) did before the chess match to hype the crowd. Once again, audience participation.

This was the start of the chess match. It wasn't your typical chess match. Pretty much it would be dictated who would fight who and then you would see a sword fight, ax fight etc.

I couldn't help myself. I had to take a picture of this adorable baby. and look at the drool. He's too cute:

Dextre Tripp:
