365 Project 024-030

Here are my photos for the week!

A mild obsession with Chips & Salsa puts me at Chili's every so often

Scrapbooking is another mild obsession, so apparently but how can it be an obsession when you are only going once every 3 months?

Current Favorite Colors...remind me of SPRING and NOT boring winter!!!

Wanted to eat these......

But these got in the way!!! ;)

Finally had to break down and get some used skates...guess having a mom in figure skates is embarrasing...WHO Knew??

Found this in the office and needed to document...Funny how it says 18 Under...LOL ;)

Don't forget to link up to TRACY as part of the 365 Project!

My 365 Project.... 365/001-016 (Long Post)

I'm playing catch up here...I promise that my other posts will NOT be this long!!! ;)

*365 /001
Receiver + buddy @ Hockey Game....look at the red eye. This is a good example of why I edit everything!

*365 /002
Getting ready for a new profile pic....not sure what I did because I look orange..

*365/003 -
Wanting a new paint color so I took a snapshot for the store

*365/004 & 365/005
Current obsession...COFFEE...wanting bokeh on 005 but did NOT achieve....UGHHH

A house that we ran across this week that looked really pretty but maybe it was because everyone else has their lights down!

I'm just documenting a couple of things around my old photos of my boys ;)

*365/008 -
I loved this photo this week. Just shows you how much a little brother looks up to a big brother!

A funny outake from my little photo shoot!

Glasses that I make occasionally, I just shipped these out so I snapped a B/W of them.

Not sure if this is bokeh but the sides of the photo and background were blurry, so I thought it might qualify!

This is a vase that is at my sister in law's. I just love it and she has it always filled with fresh flowers!

 Outdoor Ice Skating. I think I got bokeh in the background??? Maybe?

Bowling..I just like the depth of field on this one.

A snapshot I took of my friend and her husband while I updated her resume.

This was the sunset over our house last night...RAW and unedited....PRETTY~

A new year and I just could not seem to decide if I really wanted to take the plunge on a 365 project but after mycousin thinks I should do this (yes, sometimes she IS the boss of me)
I have decided that I needed this to do this so that I can learn this year about my camera and stretch my self!!! So, I have joined TRACY and the 365 crew. And, I am playing catch up!  So.....

I am participating in the 2010 Mommytography 365 Project! For this year long project I will be posting 7 image a week on Sundays, to get me out shooting, using my camera and learning new things with it daily. Anyone interested in photography can join, no need to be a Mommytographer. We have teens to adults, male and female, as well as people from all over the world. Come join the fun!

I Need Your Help!

We are wanting to get Granite Countertops.
I have searched for a really long time and I have finally found the best company!
So, here are the final two choices, but hubs and I don't agree (are you surprised? I'm not)!
I won't tell you which one I like the best but I am giving you the opportunity to look at my kitchen
 (yes, I cleaned it for you..your welcome)
and make your best choice!
