Random photos

As I have mentioned before, I have been trying to take more photos and working in a program to edit them. I am not very good. I am having a hard time learning the difference in ISO and all the specific settings. But hey- I am doing something that is different. I am hoping that for Christmas or my birthday I will get a book on photography and some tutorials. In the mean time, here are several photos I have that I like.

 what do ya'll think? Any advice or suggestions?

5 on Friday

I love 5 one Fridays. I am not sure why I don't do them more often. I Linked up with Natasha from Hello! Happiness for another rendition of 5 on Friday.

{one} Love the weather
The weather here in north Houston has been pretty marvelous this past week or so. I think it is safe to say that Fall is here and hopefully here to stay for a while. I just wish it would drop about another 10 degrees in the day and evening, and it would be perfection!

{two} Football Friday
Football season for the highschool is starting to come to an end. We are still in the contention of play offs. With a new coach this year, a playoff spot would mean a ton for his credibility. So lets see what happens with these last 4 games of the year :)

Yep, that is what I have planned for this weekend. Absolutely NOTHING. No alarm set for Saturday morning, no agenda, no must have's. Just a weekend of want to's. If I want to get out of my PJ's I will, if not, PJ's it is for the day :)

{four} Shake it off
That stupid, yes stupid, Taylor Shift song Shake It Off is stuck in my head. It has an insanely catchy beat and just keeps playing over and over in my head. I wish I was tech savvy enough to be able to put a clip of the song in here. But I have NO idea how to do that.

{five} Last but not least.... Randomness
I have my wedding photos on my work computer as my screen saver, so I randomly catch pictures that I didn't remember seeing when I first got my photos. The ONE thing that I notice more than anything, I was a freaking sap at my wedding that and I have one ugly face when I cry. LOL

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Several Days..

Instead of doing a daily update of my October photo challenge, I decided to do a weekly update. In hopes that I will actually complete this one.

Here is the challenge...

{one} a selfie
Granted this was NOT from October 1st.  But it is a selfie

{two} fall leaves 

We don't really get fall leaves here. So I found the next closet thing. 
{three}night sky 
Usually I get a night sky picture before kick off of Football, but I was working Volleyball that evening so I ran outside and got this picture. Turned out to be a much prettier sky than I thought

{four} handwriting.... I failed miserable with this one. I tried and couldn't find anything for handwriting. oopps 

{five} make up

Look at that make up!! This guy is famous for the Houston Texans. We saw him at a tailgate in Arlington for the Texans/Cowboys game
{six} addiction - My addiction is completely of taking pictures of the sky. I do it all the time. My instagram is filled of pictures of the sky. 

I will add more probably next week. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Fall Bucket List

Yes,  I stole this from Kayla at My King of Yellow It is such a great idea!! Plus, If you haven't read her blog, go do it!! I am just one of those crazy stalker blog ladies. I have never met her, but I know we would be friends if we met.

1. Which will obviously happen... Decorate our house. I bought new stuff at the end of last year's Halloween and I am excited to put it out.

2. Decorate our yard for our Halloween Party. I have never done this, so it should be interesting. Any good ideas? My parents threw great Halloween parties when we lived overseas. My mom said she would help me come up with some ideas and would go thru old pictures to see what she can find.

3. Carve pumpkins with my husband. Last year we didn't carve any, so I am hoping this year we can get around to doing it

4. Complete a October Photo Challenge... USING my husbands big camera.
This is the one I am going to do....


5. Try 3 pumpkin flavored dishes. I have NEVER tried anything Pumpkin. It scares me. Yet I LOVE the smell of pumpkins

6. Have a Fall inspired double date night. I think picking pumpkins, or going to a fall festival. Something like that would be exciting to do.

7. Cook a dish for Thanksgiving Dinner that is new and different.

I came up with 7. How many items do you have on your Fall Bucket List?

It is....


This is by far the best time of the year. I like to call them the BER months and they are officially here!!!  I woke up today with a smile on face and ready to start decorating, which will have to wait till after work today.

Anthony got down my Halloween boxes 2 weekends ago, and I think I have gone through  them 20 times already, but have left them in the garage. Today.. they will  make their way into the house and things will go up on the walls!! Today and tomorrow will be shorter days at work, which means I will have more time at home to decorate. We will be out of town this weekend so I need to get it done sooner rather than later.

This also means, I get to go buy Halloween candy for our neighbors. I wont be able to to trick or treat/hand out candy this year though :( We have a varsity football game that on actual Halloween night, so I plan on giving some candy to our neighbors kids before hand. Also, welcome in the new family that  moved in down the street last weekend.

Does everyone else really just love Halloween and these next couple months? or is it just me?

Have a great day!!
