Happy Halloween!

♥ Sweater:   St. John's Bay (JC Penny) ♥ Belt:  Calvin Klein ♥ Dress:  Tulle Clothing ♥ Tights:  JC Penny ♥ Boots:  Modcloth  Just in case you have forgotten the rules for a safe and Happy Halloween.

1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER, EVER go check to see if it's really dead.
2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even just mumbling to yourself, if you can't read silently you have no business with such a thing anyway!
3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.
4. If your pets speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to people who speak with somebody else's (usually deep) voice.
5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off or even split up and go it alone.
6. As a general rule, don't try to solve pu…

Be safe in the path of the storm

I'm just sitting here watching the big tree out my window sway in the breeze and I can't help but think of all the people bracing for the hurricane on the east coast. We are having cooler weather with rain but nothing I have to worry about too much. You can see the last big storm in my area here. Wishing everyone in the path of the storm all the best. Please be safe wherever you are my friends ♥

Concert Series: Miranda Cosgrove

On August 10, 2011 we took our granddaughter to see Miranda Cosgrove, you know Nickelodeon's iCarly (she also played the band manager in School of Rock). Ashley knows every episode by heart and Miranda's solo album had just came out. We were all very excited! Especially my hubby who stated if he never watched iCarly again or listened to the cd it would probably be too soon for him. Of course, he had a blast regardless of his taste in tv and music!

We went shopping for Ashley before the show and I let her pick out her outfit. A little fashionista I do believe. The hat was totally her idea! All items are from Kohls. I picked up the white skirt for myself and my top was from the Modcloth end of summer sale last year. I think you all know my old kicks :o) I, thankfully, finally got a couple of new pairs which you can see here and here.

We had 4th row seats and they allowed the kids to go down front which meant Ashley had a front row view. She was up there hand slapping and danci…

Just when you think it's time for a coat it warms up

♥ Coat:  Modcloth Coats - (Steve Madden) ♥ Boot Cut Jeans: Levi's ♥ Boots:  Ugg Classics
A couple of weeks ago, although sunny, it was cold enough in the evening hours to get out my new coat from last year. I wasn't sure about the color when I bought it but with oxblood being the color of fall this year it's perfect. Although more of a brick red it's still in the same color range. I purchased a couple of other coats so I didn't wear this one much but I plan to get it out more often this year. Although looking forward to wearing it more I am hoping for a mild winter. If the wooly worms are on my side, and they seem to be since the only ones I have seen were white, I won't be fighting too much snow. With it being in the 70's today who's thinking of snow anyway :o)

I'm still snapping those landscape pictures and this is my view going down the big hill into work everyday.  So pretty! You can see why I …

Some shots taken for my photography class

Look at the blurry background!!! YAY! Now if I can just figure out how I did it :o)

If you've read any of my posts lately you must know that I am taking an online beginner photography class. I have been digging out camera manuals and taking it very slow, trying to let it all sink in before getting too far ahead of myself. I always used film cameras and when digital came along I never really learned how to use the settings modes. I decided awhile back I wanted dslr camera but could not see any use in getting one if I didn't know how to use it property but I got one anyway figuring it would give me motivation to learn to use it. I'm pleased to say it has. While I was at it I wanted to learn to use my Nikon Coolpix point and shoot too. After some initial reading it appeared that I didn't know a thing about taking pictures! After I mastered the point and shoot I planned to take on my new Nikon J1.  But before I got very far on my Coolpix I came across my old camera, which…
