We went to Hilton Head, SC.  Lots of nice weather, bike riding, beach going, swimming and even . . . a little bit of reading!  Pleasure reading is seriously unheard of for me.  But I was actually able to sneak in a few chapters at the beach and the pool.  Not the whole book mind you, just a few chapters. 

Our son found a starfish and a little crab while at the beach . . . finding these treasures must have been excitement enough because he didn’t dare pick them up.  🙂

These next few remind me so much of HH.  There are trees EVERYWHERE!  It’s very nice.  Hard to find Wal-Mart, but very nice. 

And this is what I get for trying to get a shot of all three of them together.  This is my little one trying to get her big brother to cooperate for me (note my son’s outfit . . . he just HAD to wear those trunks). 

Our little swimmer.  She is like a fish!  I love that she loves the water, but we have to watch her close because she isn’t afraid of anything.

This is what happened nearly everytime we went on a bike ride . . .

And just to prove I was actually there . . . a little self portrait.  My son says I look like a dinosaur with curly hair.   Nice.

last one . . .


I took this couple all around Plain City.  One of our favorite spots was the old one room schoolhouse.  They were great sports . . . up for anything . . . not to mention extremely photogenic. 

Thanks guys!  Enjoy!



and it shows in the pictures!  Enjoy your sneak peek, girls.  Your full gallery is coming soon.

I don’t even know what she was laughing about.  She was completely entertaining herself!  I love both of these shots because they speak volumes about her. 

The kittens are still available!  Scroll down for info.


You know you want to take me home and give me the love I deserve.  I’ll be good.  I’m already trained.  I’m playful and irresistable.  Take me home.  Make it happen. 

email me if you want one . . .  🙂  They need homes next week.  🙂 


Here are the rules;
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Sabreena tagged me.  Thanks for giving me so much grace in getting this done (she tagged me quite a while ago)!

Oooooo, 7 facts about myself . . . this is a challenge:

1.   I used to wear black ALL the time.  Seriously, everyday I wore something black.  Now I can’t stand to wear black.  I have a black sweater I really like, but I can seldom put it on.  I reserve the black things in my closet for funerals.  Although, if anyone reading this comes to my funeral someday and I can see you from heaven . . . please do me a favor and wear happy, bright colors.  The more polka dots and stripes the BETTER!

2.  My hair is VERY curly!!!!!  Naturally curly that is.  Sometimes I want to shout out to the world, “I don’t get perms every week . . . it really is this curly!!!”  Some days I love it, most days not so much. 

3.  I can do this weird one handed clap.  Yes, it is weird.  My brother and I used to have competitions to see who could one-handed clap the loudest.  My cousin was the judge and my brother always won . . . she liked him better. 

4.  I am a night owl.  It is after midnight right now and I am still going strong.  I will force myself to go to bed as soon as I am done with this post because I have to get up for church tomorrow.  But the night is my free time and I struggle to give that up just to sleep!

5.  I am very subjective about time.  In other words, I am almost always LATE.  Except for my photography sessions.  I always try to be early for those.  Being late drives my mom crazy (I say with a smirk).  You know I love ya, Mom.  😉

6.  Okay, this one is more about my parents/family than me, but it fascinates me (especially since I have had my own children).  I have three older brothers . . . the oldest two were born in the same calendar year and they are not twins!!!  Yes, people . . . you read that right.  They are 9 months and 1 day apart.  That should be in the Guiness Book of World Records!!  My second oldest brother was born early . . . a month and a half early.  My mom will probably want to kill me for posting this for all the world to see, but she and my dad deserve a lot of credit for raising two boys 9 months apart.  Seriously . . . that was no cake walk.  And my brothers turned out to be amazing men of integrity.  Way to go Mom and Dad! 

7.  The number 7 is my favorite number.  Always has been, always will be.  It was the number I chose for volleyball in high school, it is the day God rested, and it feels complete to me . . . just like this tag post.  🙂 

I’m tagging my husband Bob, and my good friend Melissa Speelman (links to their blogs are in my sidebar).  I know that’s not 7.  7 is my favorite number and obviously I have only listed 2 people.  This will just have to be one of those things in my life that remains incomplete.  🙂

I wanted to put a picture with this post, but as I already said it is after midnight and I need to go to bed.  Pictures will have to wait.
