The night was cool and crisp. Perfect weather for romping around in the grass and digging burrows. Its been months since he’s had the chance to jump so high with excitement. What a terrible mommy I am!


This is my cutie pie little bunny, Smudge, who I lovingly call Smudgie-poo. I took these pictures last fall, but letting him out last night reminded me of them and how cute they were!



That’s my little boy! 🙂 Hope these pictures brighten your day on such an overcast afternoon!

I know the other day I was so excited about warmer weather and spring being here. I had a great time exploring and snapping some pictures of springtime. The crazy thing is, there was snow on the ground when I got up yesterday morning! I hope the cold weather doesn’t kill the flowers that are out now!

I was thinking today is the perfect day for posting these pictures. We were fooled with a few weeks of warmer weather, so here’s to bring some spring back into your step.

Even though its Monday and its cold out–happy spring!

Springtime is here!

25 03 2011

I’ve been researching and reading reviews for the past week and I’ve been dying! The early spring flowers have been out for a few weeks and I can’t wait to take those beautiful macro shots that I dream about. Well, I am currently using my stock lens on my camera and I would love the Nikon Telephoto AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 ED-IF AF-S VR AF lens! But, seeing as how I’m not extremely rich at this moment, I decided to venture out this afternoon to take advantage of the overcast day. Boy am I excited how some of these shots turned out! As I fiddle around with my camera and learn how to use it, I’m learning to be more ok with my stock lens because part of the problem was me!

I’ll post more pictures on here later. I couldn’t help but post this one now as I started uploading them!

….do you think if I did a puppy face my wonderful husband would buy me a micro lens? 😉 I’m pretty sure I have the worst puppy face of all time…

Best Friends

23 03 2011

There is something amazing about having a four-legged best friend. Now, I’m not really a cat person, but I have the most adorable puppy (who isn’t really a puppy anymore). She’s been my faithful friend all these years, through good and bad. She still loves me when I come back from a weeks vacation or when I can’t play with her enough.

She’s quite the scardy cat, but when I pulled out her leash to take her on a “roadtrip” two days ago, she was excited! The disappointment for me was that I was taking her to the vet to leave her overnight 2 nights for an ACL surgery. I am heading to pick her up this afternoon and I can’t wait to see her! She’s going to be upset at me for leaving her, but her affection never fails.

If you think of us, she’ll be in recovery for 8 weeks. She’s such a puppy at heart that its going to be hard on her.

Happy Hump Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

17 03 2011

First I’d like to say I’ve been absolutely awful about blogging. I am making a St. Patrick’s Day resolution to do better. From here on out I hope this is less of a subconscious though and more of an action. Keep me accountable!

I showed up at work at 6 a.m. this morning decked out in green. Not only do I have on a green blazer, but also earrings, necklaces, “kiss me I’m Irish” socks etc. When the rest of the baristas arrived not a single one of them was wearing green! Needless to say, I shared some of my St. Patrick’s Day love. You see, my family has always celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. We are actually part Irish and my mom makes corned beef and cabbage every year or we are at the nearest Irish pub to enjoy it. I am carrying the tradition on in my new little family. Also, my favorite color is green, so St. Patrick’s Day is definitely one of my favorite holidays.

I hope you haven’t been pinched! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
