kelly moore bag pt. 2 | for erin

This is for Erin - here you go lady!  My fabulous pink Kelly Moore camera bag that Justin got for me.  I love it!! and so does Harps - she carries it around saying, "puush" (Harpey for purse).  I haven't put anything in it yet.  But I will.  As soon as my child gives it up. :)  Erin, you should give in and get your gray one.  After all, you did say your shootsac was flawed :D  Everyone, go check out Erin's glorious work.  I aspire to be like her... *sigh*  Maybe one of these days.

My most recent Stokes purchase - a light blue metallic shabby end table.  Loooooove it!

red river

At the beginning of January, my parents took all of us to go skiing in Red River, NM.  I haven't been skiing since 2003.  2 weeks before I met my honey to be exact.  :)  Anyways - it's like riding a bicycle.  We all had so much fun... can't wait to go back.  Can't wait to get those babies on skis!  Here are a few of my favorite pics from our week that went by entirely too fast.

The guys picked Blair and I and the babies up in Santa Fe and we drove the rest of the way to Red River.  My views from the backseat...

Last but not least, all the hairy men - Dave, J, Dad, Unca P.

2010 goals

1.  Blog more.  The good and the bad.  I stole this idea from Amber and I think it is such a good idea!  I want to blog about the bad and frustrating stuff too - not just the good.  Makes me more real I think.  I read a lot of blogs, and sometimes I feel like I am the only one who gets frustrated with life or has a bad day, because all I read about is the positive stuff.  So when I am frustrated with my darling husband (that almost NEVER happens...) or when he is frustrated with me (again, that almost NEVER happens...), when I am praying for patience with my 20-month old, when I need uplifting or prayers, you will (hopefully) read about it.

2.  Tell my husband DAILY how much I love and appreciate him.  I thank God for him and Harper everyday, but do I actually tell Justin that?  I want him to know that my life wouldn't be the same without him.  I want him to know that he was brought into my life for a reason.  He made me believe in love again.  Enough of the mushy.

3.  Take more pictures.  Impossible, right?  But seeing as this is one of my biggest goals for this year (ahem... become a photographer), I need to constantly strive to get better!  I ask God daily for the strength and perserverance to achieve this.  Does anyone want pictures taken??  I need the practice :)  Seriously.

4.  Be a better wife/mom/sister/daughter/friend.

5.  Workout  he he

6.  Cook more.  On the weekends anyway.

7.  Learn Photoshop.

I think that's a good start!

We got back from Red River last weekend, and I promise to have some pictures posted soon.  I do have one prayer request - I have my first session tomorrow.  I am nervous because I want to do a great job.  Now I do need to tell you that it is for my sister-in-law Britt and her family, but it is my first official one!  So, please pray for peace for me.  And confidence.

P.S.  Justin got me my pink Kelly Moore bag!!!  Yay and yay.

kelly moore bag

I am desperately wanting to turn my photography hobby into something a little more serious, and I am always looking at different photography blogs and sites for inspiration.  I found this great lens bag that I am begging my husband for!  (Please, Justin??)  Very cool and stylish!  It has different compartments for lenses (so far, I only have 2, but hey - I gotta start somewhere) or anything else someone could think of putting in there.  Go check out her website here if you are in the market for a really cool bag!  (Justin??)     


A couple of weeks ago, to Mom: "Mom, don't forget I have your panties in my purse."

10 minutes ago, to Mom: "Pull my pants down, Mommy!"  (Had to be there.  But seriously, I peed a little.)
