We saw. 
We got messy.
We'll go again.

More light leaks

I hate my life.  The light leak part.

I'm going to reshoot all these bw's with a different film.  Because I like them that much.

All smiles

E baby

I do believe I've got myself a light leak.  Not cool. 
Twenty of my most favorite E shots totally ruined.  Curses!!!

It's no secret I love Oliver + S. This is one of my favorite patterns of all time.

Easter preview

I made a couple.  I bought a couple. 

I love this time of year.

I can see your halo


I'm thinking about a halo series with the girls.  This is a test.

Neon baby quilt

Had to get this one out of my head.

All that white could be a mistake. Yet, I love it.

The good report

1.  Jeff and Dallas painted the basement bedroom and bath (back to white).  I'm so thrilled.  We should have done that years ago.
2.  M has been surprising me by trying new foods (edemame, refried beans).  She's not as adventurous as L in that area so I'm thrilled.
3.  E had her first tooth break through. 
4.  Spring like weather makes me feel so fine. 
5.  Some great Sunday meetings.
6.  Jeff left his church bag at chruch. With the ipad in it. Rushed back to church when we realized, and there it sat.  Relief.
7. We got our recommends renewed and I had a great convo with one of the Stake counselors.
8.  Weekly FHE is waaaaay better than I anticipated.
9.  And I can see little changes for the better in our life.
10.  There's going to be a May wedding.  Woot woo!
11.  And we're making plans for L to make the trip with me. 
12.  A belated bday present from my sister-in-law arrived in the mail.  Unexpected.  Awesome. 
13.  E is pulling herself to standing position. 
14.  A phone call from Carolee may have changed my life this week.  (concerning our photo lab).  EEEEEEEE!
15.  L taking E for a stroller ride on the block.  Both were entertained. 
16.  Tiny baby skinnies for $8 (Target) pink and mint.  Adorbs!
17.  Finished another baby quilt. 
18.  The way E lights up when I walk in the room each morning. 
19.   More sprucing up the house.

This girl is all smiles

I'm feeling visually bored again.  Even though I've been trying to apply weekly challenges from my photo group, It's just not enough. 
Just bored. 
Here's hoping a little family roadtrip next week gives me a little somethin'.

...and new haircuts too

oh stop it, M!
This one is getting framed up in a 16 x 20


Something still isn't right with the profiles.  I don't know what it is.  But partly it's that I did not even photograph them at the same distance.  Arg.

The whole idea was to hang these as a pair on the wall, but it's still now wow-ing me.  I dunno. I'll keep experimenting until I love it. 
Besides, they are super uncooperative.  Which is awesome.

But I'm obsessed with our art easel (chalkboard) as a black background.  I like the darkness of it all and will stay on that one for a while.

I'm actually liking something like this more.....
I think it's probably just a project I need to put on hold for until they are all a little older.  Like when E will sit for a profile. 

Those are my ramblings.  For now.

The good report

1.  Dinner and late night chatting with Holly.  She (and Jeff) is the only person on this planet that thinks I'm funny.  Love to laugh with her.
2.  E's face is healing up beautifully after a visit to the dermatologist.  Girl got it bad (eczema).
3.  Beautiful weather. 
4.  Jeff rocked the girls bedtime a few nights this week.  Which means I didn't have to worry about it.
5.  I started getting back in to Lie to Me on Netflix.  I love that show. 
6.  F8 meeting at a really deelish Thai restaurant.
7.  Moroccan oil is really helping my hair.  (But after my St. George trip, I'm thinking soft water would help the most.  My hair felt amazing.)

Hair line

I love the shape of her new cut.

I've been wanting to take a pic like this.  Just to see if I can. 

I need a grown up.
