Getting Ready For Spring...

I am getting ramped up for some projects
now that spring is in the air, I can't wait!

I have always loved finding things that were less than grand and making them
uniquely my own but have put much of that aside for sometime between working a
full week (lets just say 40 doesn't hit the mark), taking care of my
little man and trying to keep the house just clean has been all I could muster
these last 2 years. Now that I am home I want to finally get my nest in order.

We have lived in our home for nearly 6 years and I must confess there are
walls I have never painted, yes I said it. If you were someone that had stepped
in my last house you would have never guessed that of me. Just to give you an
idea, we lived in out last house for 6 years and I painted the living room 4
times in those 6 years. But our household has been a busy one since we have
been in this home, however, as a family we are learning that its not always
best to be so busy with stuff and things that we can't enjoy time as a family
and I am starting to find a little sense of a moment of freedom here and there
and it feels so nice.

So stop by for a visit every now and then and see what this fun house it up to.

Got my early Valentine, Birthday, Mothers Day gift from my WONDERFUL hubby last night!

I am turning 30 this year and had put a bug in my husbands ear several weeks ago that 30 deserved something special (with a smile) and I really would love a nice camera. Well first of all he actually heard what I said, secondly he took it way more seriously than I thought he would have....

Last night after I put my little boy to bed as soon as I walked out his door my husband asked me if I would go get his phone off our bed, I nicely said yes as he had a 21 hour shift the day previous and I knew he was very tired (although a thought of "lazy" did get in my head) anyway, I open the door and to my wonderful suprise there it was all laid out accessories included.....

A Sony a33 Digital SLT camera and 2 Lenses (18-55 & 55-200) and everything esle I would need to get started, I cried, yes cried. This is the first DSLR (SLT) with a translucent mirror technology, means it takes frames much fast than most others out there which = not having blurry photos of my baby doing what he does, and many more sweet features, I have to learn about them all. My husband of course can tell me all about it as he has been researching every comparable camera which makes it even more special. I am not trying to say he is not thoughtful he very much is, but anyone that knows me knows I am picky and hard to suprise especially by my husband because he wants me to be happy.

I could not believe he got such a nice piece, I mean I didn't even know what I wanted myself yet and already knew I would have to go looking for something used and was perfectly content with that but I got this pretty little thing, I couldn't have been more suprised or pleased.

My hubby is the bestest!!! LOVE YOU BABE!

P.S. He did give me one restriction, he said no furniture photos, well I can't promise that, but my primary subject is always my baby so I think I'll be okay, of course this is once I figure out how to operate it :).
