All day long I wanted to run off to Sherwood Forest

After putting on this outfit the other morning I felt like all I needed was a hat with a feather and a bow and arrow and I would be ready to join Robin Hood and his band of merry men :o)

The Nexus 7 tablet

I have been working lately transforming my blog into an actual working blog, not just a random post here and there. If I am going to do it I might as well do it right as they say! While doing so I have been researching ways to post easier and that's where technology comes into the mix. I work full-time plus an extra 10 hours in the evenings throughout the month, I'm married and have a needy puppy dog so time can be of the essence at times so the easier the better. I've come a long way in the last couple years, I now have my laptop, my wi-fi is set up (albeit slow), I have my smartphone with Mophie case for extra juice, and two cameras (one to carry around and one with different lenses). The next logical thing I needed was a tablet. Sounded so good to me I talked myself right into it! 
It takes time to learn each new thing so it can take me some time to get a handle on new things but in a little under two years I think I've come a long way. After getting something that…

Concert Series - Lynyrd Skynyrd

In February of 2011 it was announced that none other than Lynyrd Skynyrd was going to play a show at my favorite venue. Not until Labor Day weekend though. It was a long time off but, of course, we had to go. The Fraze only holds 4,300 so I knew I had to get tickets when they went on sale. I got tickets right off the bat and they were down front but for some reason I never noticed the "limited view" disclosure at the time I got the tickets. But, who cares, right? We were there! As it grew closer to the show it appeared that my hubby was not going to be able to attend with me and everyone I knew was already going or could not go, so that left my granddaughter. We had attended Miranda Cosgrove (see here) at the same place a few weeks earlier and she had attended the sold out Ringo Star and his Allstars show a couple years beforehand so I didn't have to worry about her being a newbie but I was a bit concerned about her being a child. A child at a Lynyrd Skynyrd show! lol I…

Music Monday - Lady Gaga

Being a little monster myself I have been quite excited about the upcoming new album from Lady Gaga which is set to be released on November 11, 2013. It seems like forever since her last release. I had planned to wait to do a post about the new album once it came out but with seeing the Kia Soul Hamsters commercial every time I watch tv I guess I have her new single Applause on the brain and I love it. The commercial is so cute and the song is so catchy, what's not to love. Besides I couldn't resist posting this adorable picture of her and her little fellow, Fozzi. Now he's what I call cute!

While walking around the yard the other day with my camera hoping to catch a pretty picture for Instagram I came upon this pretty little butterfly. Most times they are so elusive that I cannot get a photo but this little guy stayed put for a few shots.

I have been eyeballing this pretty butterfly purse for some time now on Modcloth. I think my little butterfly buddy has talked me right into purchasing it as soon as my budget allows. Love it!

The Harvest Moon

Last evening about 11:00 p.m. Fadra decided it was time to go outside and go potty so off we went. When I walked outside I was surprised by how bright the evening was. I have trees that are probably 100 or more feet tall so it's a rarity that I get to see the moon at all, very often. It so happened last night it was in just the right spot. I got spooked during the last full moon by a growling raccoon (at least I think it was a raccoon because all I could see were glowing yellow eyes) so after checking around for raccoons (or werewolves) to make sure one didn't snatch Fadra up, I ran in the house and grabbed my camera. Awhile back I finally got the zoom lens for my Nikon J1 camera and this was a perfect time to try it out. The moon always looks so small in pictures I wanted to see what my new lens would do. I was pleasantly pleased with the photos!
I wanted to post my photos along with some information about the full moon this morning and in doing some research it came to my a…
