So far I have two entries, but am extending so that we can have a few more entries :)
I still haven't received all my jewelry supplies in the mail yet, so Jewllori can't commence just yet!

Specs Appeal and Contests

So someone here got new specs....
And she's diggin them.

They're D&G frames that I got off ebay for UBER cheap, and then got my new prescription put into them.
I'm surprised I took the plunge and actually bought something like eyeglass frames off ebay. Like, I'm waaaay more picky than ebay, but I did! I found some great ones I thought I liked the look of, purchased them, and when they arrived I was so happy they 'looked' good on!!!

I *HEART* this pic of Cali and daddy...oh my goodness.
Just love it.
She loves her daddy now.....alot. She never really 'wanted' daddy, but now she cries everytime he passes her and doesn't pick her up for a snuggle. It's adorable. But seriously. Mommy is a little put out. I loved being the one and only! haha!

Lady Killer right here.
He's seriously charming, encouraging, and good looking!
The other day I must have been mumbling about feeling fat to myself, because this little lovebug says to me ' Momma, you're not fat. You're straight(meaning thin!) LOVE him :)
Thanks for being my personal cheering squad Ross, you are Awesome!
BTW, this guy is going to be 5 next month!!!!! What on earth? Since when did I have a 5 year old?!!?

And this little presh, melt a momma's heart.
She's so sweet, and so good, and so snuggly :)
She's saying oodles of words now, loves her bath times with mom, loves her brothers unconditionally, generous with her open mouthed kisses(a little bit wet might I add), and just an all around girl. Sweetest pumpkin ever.
This one too will be 1 next month! My baby!!!!

And I can't get enough of this little man.
He's too cute for words. He loves his family. He kisses/hugs me all.the.time.
And I don't even have to ask! He's so beautiful inside and out, and makes our family so happy! He's funny, he's exuberant, he's the bear, as we call him. Snuggly, warm hearted, and precious.


And for FUN- cause we all like a little fun once in awhile right!?
For a $15 gift card to Jewllori(currently closed cause I'm making up FANTASTIC things as we speak...err get what I mean)
Take a look at this pic...
What do you see!?
A messy dresser!? YES! That would be my messy dresser.
But what I noticed when I took the pic was, brands. Brand names.
Can you spot 5?
SPOT 5 brand names, List them in a comment here with your email addy, and your name will be entered into a draw to win a gift certificate to Jewllori!

Wanna see some of my past work?
Here's just a snippet...

So go ahead! Brand me! See if I care!

Have fun :D

What's making me smile..

My crazed banana eating
He's blessed my
life ten fold. BFF's.

My awesome big
little man. He's such
an encourager and
he just warms my
heart so much.

My sweet and sensitive
Evan. He hugs me at
the most perfect moments,
and fills my love tank
on a regular basis.

My beautiful girlie, Cali Joy,
who melts my heart everytime
she says 'momma'. I never knew a love like this...

My life is happy. Content. Loved. Blessed.

Same photo- with editing!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo I took of Cali today....

But as you can see, it's very underexposed, and grainy :( It has some redeeming qualities about it though...great angle, fairly sharp, nice backlighting...but unfortunately it needed some work for it to be perfect.

So enter Laura Craig, friend and photographer, and Boss photo editor :)
Check it out now!

tell me that's not stinkin amazing, right!?!?!? I KNOW! I'm seriously indebted to her talent :) She's so great! She took my seriously bad pic, and turned it into this angelic little being, my precious Cali!
This one is definitely being blown up and framed big on my wall....too darn cute!


My new watermark....

Working on becoming a better photographer :)

My first entries!

Day 2 of The Joy of Love!
Here are my two entries...the topic was, How they Look.

Ross, can now LOOK and see, through his new specs :)

And this is how Evan looked for the past few days as he was sick. He's only getting a glimmer of life back in his eyes, but even a little is enough for me :)
