a few of my favorite things.

It’s almost halfway through the last month of 2010.  I figured this would be as good a time as any to blog again.  I don’t know what it’s going to take for me to be consistent with this thing again….

A few of my favorite things.  In a list.  In no particular order.

1.) the holiday season. As much as I dislike the freezing cold temps, I love the holidays.  I love that I get to see all my family and at least a few good friends twice in two months.  Going home rocks!  Therefore the holidays rock.  I was pretty much camera-ed out this Thanksgiving and didn’t get many pictures.  Gotta do better at Christmas!  But I love this one of me and my daddy.. I don’t have many pictures with him, so I cherish this one..


2.) my Ava princess.  Ava is and always will be one of my very favorite people.  She is a living doll.  I bought her a princess crown and gave it to her on Thanksgiving day.  I told her she was a princess.  Her response??  “no, I’m a QUEEN!!”.  So there we have it… she is Queen Ava from now on!  haha!


3.) my Hubby.  He has been my rock here lately.  I’m so grateful for him.  He makes me laugh when I don’t feel like laughing.  He is changing before my eyes.. and the changes are good ones.  I feel so blessed! 


4.) my job.  Although little man has been fussy lately, (He’s been cutting two teeth and dealing with a cold) I couldn’t ask for a better job.  Just look at that face…


5.) my furry babies.  On cold nights before Justin gets home from work, I love cuddling with my puppy and my kitty.  They keep me good company.


6.) caramel brulee fraps.  Starbucks knew what they were doing with this one.  No words.


7.) my Christmas tree.  It is small.  But it, along with the stockings hanging from the mantle, does it’s job.  It brings me Christmas cheer!  I love having the lights on all the time.  Christmas is the best!


8.) monster cookies.  These things  probably deserve their own post… but oh well!  A friend, also named Melissa, posted about making these on her blog.  I was intrigued!  All things good that can go into a cookie are combined together into one cookie!!!!  I made half a batch and it was plenty.  You must try them….


9.)  MY NEW CAMERA AND NEW LENS!!!  I almost can’t believe it.  I have been wanting to upgrade for a while.  I was pushing my xsi to it’s limits at just about every shoot I’ve had here lately.  I needed something better.  But thought surely it wasn’t possible.  With the money from my old gear, my hubby, my wonderful in-laws, some money I’ve had saved, and a photog friend needing to upgrade also…. I’m now the proud owner of a Canon 5d and a 50mm 1.4 lens!  No pictures yet, but I had to list it, cause it’s definitely one of my favorite things right now.

10.) The Chronicles of Narnia movies.  Justin and I had seen the first two movies before, but when we found out the third was coming out this weekend we decided to have a little marathon.  We watched the first one last sunday, the second on wednesday, and went to the new one today!  They are all great, but I really enjoyed the newest one.  We went with some of our besties, Dustin and Jenna.  It was a good time.
