Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

Wow, I didn’t realize it has been quite so long since my last post.  We have been in the new house for almost a month and so far so good!  We are just waiting on the new sofa to come and then I have to persuade Matt to buy a dining room table.  My craft desk is on the way and then I can start working on that room (which I’m really excited about)! Yesterday Matt was sitting on the…

Snow and more snow!

Snow and more snow!

In the past 2 weeks we’ve had like 3-4 days of snow!?!?  This is absolutely crazy for NC.  Normally we’ll get a day of snow here or there but these past few weeks it’s been a lot!  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good snow day but this is starting to get ridiculous.  The city basically shuts down because we aren’t equipped to deal with snow.  Not to mention people already drive like idiots so adding snow is a…

Meet baby G!

Meet baby G!

It’s been about a month since my cousin K had her baby. Baby G was born on Father’s Day. Mom went to stay with K and her husband for about a week right after G was born. I decided to go see G while mom was there. I figured I could give her and K a break, and possibly a nap, while I was there. G was only 3 days old when I went to visit and he was adorable….

Super Moon

Super Moon

A couple of months ago there was a Harvest Moon.  I actually missed but not before I tried to take pics of it.  It had happened the night before.  Anyway, before I realized this I decided to try to take some pics of it.  I put my camera on the tripod and went out on the deck.  I got everything set up and then starting playing around with manual mode.  Since I really had no idea what I was doing,…

Fourth of July Weekend

Fourth of July Weekend

Due to a competition at work, I ended up with July 3rd off as well as the 4th.  Matt and I both decided to also take Monday off so we could have a long weekend at the beach.  As the week started, a tropical storm formed off the coast.  By Wednesday it was headed for the beach but looked like it should pass by late Thursday and be out of our way for the weekend. Thursday morning we woke up…

Flowers! I have flowers!

Flowers! I have flowers!

A few months ago I came across a bag of Gladiolus bulbs at Costco. When I lived in Austin, I used to always buy Gladiolus from the grocery store. The H.E.B would always have bundles for around $10.00. It was a great way to keep fresh flowers in my apartment, so when I saw them at Costco I couldn’t resist myself. When the weather warmed up I planted about 15 under our deck and a few more on the side…

Snow day part deux (365 challenge)

Snow day part deux (365 challenge)

Work has been crazy busy the last week or so and I haven’t had a chance to write about the snowstorm that hit Raleigh last week.  Predictions were 4-8″ and I would say we definitely got 4″ plus a little more. The snow was due to start around lunch on Wed so Matt decided to ride in to work with me and work from the Hunt Library on campus.  It is about 2 blocks from my office and he hadn’t been…

Snow Day – 365 Challenge Week 5

Snow Day – 365 Challenge Week 5

I’m totally cheating and using some of the snow pics from last week for my challenge. 🙂 Last week the news started calling for snow on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning.   I got to work and waited for the flurries to start.  By 4:00 pm there was still no snow in the Triangle.  I waited another half hour and decided to head home anyway.  Matt and I laid on the couch around 5 and I told him it would…

365 Challenge – Week 4

365 Challenge – Week 4

I know I’m a few days late but I haven’t had a chance to edit at work. 😉  Here are my pics from last week.  I’m currently working from home today since it’s a SNOW DAY but I’ll blog about that tomorrow! (and include some pics!) ~k

365 Challenge

365 Challenge

What is a 365 Challenge you ask?  Well it’s when you commit to doing a certain thing everyday for a year.  In my case it’s a photography challenge.  The goal is to help me get better with my camera and take better pics.  Now, with that said, I’m only 13 days into my challenge and I haven’t quite taken a pic a day. Guys, let me tell you, this is hard!  So instead of giving up on the idea I’ve…
