Scratch That...

I tried doing that photo challenge. It failed for a couple of reasons.

Reason 1: It's hard to set time aside for such a project when Anna is crawling around the house looking for things to destroy.

Reason 2: Some of the challenges were fairly stupid and in order to do something not equally stupid it would have taken a lot of my "What I Wore" assignment.

So...maybe some other time...or something.

In other news, today I'm going to Weston with my grandma, momma, Aimee, Anna and I think we're meeting Kris and Kenzie down there. I'm driving since we have the car seat in the back and it's not as simple as the infant car seat to install. "I'm driving..." is also know as "I'll be stopping for gas and a quick car clean up" on the way to pick up the ladies.

Anna is super tired right now. She's not really letting me put her down for anything. She fell asleep later than normal last night and woke up earlier than normal. Oops. I tried to lay her down while I took a shower, but she wasn't having it. She'll be out on the way down there. Hopefully she'll be in a good mood today.

Maybe I should finish getting ready. I have about half an hour left and I need to dry my hair, get Anna changed, call around to announce my departure soon, and move around clothes downstairs. Doing laundry is extra difficult these days when Anna's awake. Looks like today I'll be doing some laundry with one hand again! If only this girl wasn't so heavy...

Photo Challenge Day 2: What I Wore

Naturally I'm behind...go figure!
I actually did do the day two challenge on day two, but the pictures were stupid and I didn't have a time to do anything better. So, I redid it yesterday. I also did day three's assignment (clouds) but those pictures were stupid, too. Today I might try to go check out a couple places to take pictures, so maybe I can get some pictures of clouds while I'm out...and do day four's assignment!

I saw an idea like that before on Flickr. I was trying to find the girl that posted it, but I can't remember what her username it seems that I'm out of luck and disappointed. Anyway, I tried to use my shorts and flip flops in this picture, too. But, the shorts were too dark against the house so they just looked like the outline of shorts and the flip flops were too small to see any kind of definition whatsoever. Also, if I had known where I was going to set up this picture, I would have picked a different color of shirt.

Maybe I'll try something similar again in the future.

That's a during shot. Fancy!

Photo Challenge Day 1: Self-Portrait

Okay, so on Pinterest I've seen quite a few different photo challenges. Nothing comes of the challenges, except for pictures. So, I decided that today would be a good day to start with it being the first of the month and everything.

I was taking pictures with my wide angle/macro lens attachment. I've learned it should really be called the "I will make it look like you only have a nose" attachment, because seriously...look at this:


Anyway, I haven't updated in quite a while, so I thought maybe I should do that.

Let's see. We've moved, Anna's crawling (and as a bonus, she's throwing fits), I'm working on getting my photography back up and running, and that's all I can think of right now. I actually should be doing something with my photography-related messaging people back, adding information to my "website", figuring out prices for know, productive things.

But, yes. Anna is crawling. Naturally she crawls mainly to the things she's not supposed to mess with. Like the DVDs, the wood burning stove, the cords under the computer desk, the trash can, Miles' guitar, and the phone charger. It's a lot of chasing her down and a lot of tantrums. Today we've realized that if you say "no" to her when she's not doing anything wrong she'll cry, but just saying it when she's doing something she shouldn't doesn't matter. Weird.

I think that's all I have right now. Maybe I will do something productive. Ehh. Yes, yes, yes, that's what I need to do. Just to get it over with.
