I took this picture this morning in my kitchen while QB2 was sniffing a couple of flowers that my in laws brought to me as a, they were so cute and so was QB2 so I could not resist.

Spring Break Catch Up....+ BLOGOVERSARY BONUS!!!

Ah yes, the dreaded or beloved Spring break is finally over....if you have been wondering where I have been in the blogging sense than you will understand when I say that SPRING fever hit the whole Eyeglasses & Endzones team as we headed up North to the beautiful cabin (well, on its way to beautiful...check out Here if you are curious)!

This weeks has consisted of a lot of FIRST for our little brood:

1. The 1st time skiing for both QB1 & QB2...they did GREAT!!!

They just had a blast.....and we also had another First...that would be the Head Coach...sort of getting stuck in the Magic Carpet lift with his pole and flipping over the side...of course, this picture was taken BEFORE that occurred...Sorry babe, I had to share!!! Inquiring bloggers want to know...right?

Another First this week was QB1 playing in between periods for the Gopher / UMD Bulldogs WCHA Game! Of course, it was his whole Blaine Hockey team but I am just highlighting my Quarterback!! It was the fastest 4 minutes of his life, but it was in front of 19,000 fans!!!

Yet another is a FIRST for QB2 was his 1st soccer practice that will have an end result of GAMES! He has been to small to actually have games! So, here is a practice photo!

Then we went to the cabin for a couple of days of renovating....=) And I came back to me thinking that I need to do my BLOGOVERSARY Giveaway!!!! Yeah, for you for sticking through this really really long post!!! So....(DRUM ROLL), Here is what I am giving away for the 1yr tribute to my lovely followers:

Messy Car...

So, today I have been running around like a banchee trying to get ready for Spring Break next week up at the cabin (we are renovating and it is chaos)!

I was getting out of the car this afternoon, and I just so happened on this lovely view of my front seat....

I just want to say, I am typically a neat person!!! My house is always picked up and everything in its place. But sometimes my car looks like a homeless person is living inside and I must admit, some days there might be someone in the back of the car and I would never even know.

If anyone has the number for a good car detailing place...please let me know!!!!

Honestly...what does your car look like?

Happy Blogoversary To Me.....

Get your own free Blogoversary button!

Yeah oh Yeah...its my BLOGOVERSARY TODAY!!!

I'm pretty sure that you are hoping for a lovely prize give away like most of the other bloggers...however, this is not MOST blogs...
let me propose a question that all of you can comment to..

Why is that when it is your BLOGOVERSARY that YOU are required to give something away? Shouldn't it be the other way around???? Like all my bloggy friends should be sending me presents???? Now, I know this may sound selfish but honestly..doesn't that just make more sense?

Stop kidding know you already bought me something lovely =)
You can send it to....HA! I fooled you!

While I am still thinking of something really great that I can raffle off, I am paying a homage to all things BLOGGY....Yes, that is right we are starting our own BLOGTIONARY..right here!!! You are witnessing BLOGSTERY in the making!!! I will start out slow and get more creative as I go...

It seems to me that we all have a little blogdiction going here....I hope I don't cause blogdemonium when creating this post! I've really had a blogdiction the past year, one that might be cause for a blogcation. If you are a follower of mine, you might being showing blogertism (and for that I am grateful)!

Have you applied blogssure to any friends or family to get them started? Then you are a blogdeeva!!

I hope your not getting blogdom because I might have a touch of Blogblock. Its time for me to go Bloggercize and have my own Blogabration for my Blogoversary.

Now, my only request for presents...send this little ol' blog who is one year your blogosphere friends and create a little might just send me into BLOGFAMOUS levels!!!

Stay tuned for prizes....and please leave a comment with your own bloggy terms...maybe I missed something?

I Heart Faces...Creative Cropping..

Before Photograph

So here we are again for another installment of I Heart Faces.
This weeks post is Creative Cropping...and I am entering in the adult category this time.
Last week I was fortunate enough to make the top 10 in the beginner category, so I thought since all of us usually use our children as subjects, I would spice mine up a bit this week.

Some of you might have seen my finished photograph on a couple of posts past but I am using it again because I love that it was a simple crop but still makes a great statement when placed in a collage format.

After Photograph

So, Good luck to everyone this week.
And congrats to all who made the beginning top 10 last week!
