Dear Puma,

Thank you for letting me know that I should expect 2 shoes in my shoebox.

I sure wasn't expecting that. ;)

I got featured!!!

You all know about i♥faces right? Well, I have been entering their contests for awhile now and just a few days ago I decided to join their community network. I mostly joined because I was curious and because I wanted to add pictures to the flowers theme. So I took a few minutes out of my homework time (no worries, I got it done. Although it doesn't ever really end...) and I joined and then added a few photos. I didn't really have enough time to tinker with it and learn the ropes of it, so I settled with adding my two cents and then I logged out.

I checked a few times after I added my pictures, seeing if I had any comments or anything like that. I didn't, so I went on my merry way, thinking that eventually I could figure it all out and then I could get traffic going through it.

But then today, I got an email. It said I'd been featured on i♥faces photography community. Huh, I thought to myself. Lets check this out before I get to excited maybe its not what I think.

But much to my surprise, it was what I thought and my wish finally came true! Okay, that's a little dramatic but I have wanted to get one of my photos featured. My ultimate goal is to place in one of the contests but for now, this is great!

Here is the lucky photo:

I find it funny they featured this one- it was one of the first ones I ever took with my new camera and I have never edited it at all! This is straight out of the camera! But I am just beyond excited that they thought it worthy to feature.

If you would like to see for yourself you can click on the picture and it will take you straight to the i♥faces post where it was featured.

Wow. I am just so excited. I know its not like a challenge winner or anything, but for me this is a win in my book!

Spring Break 2010!

I know I am a little behind with this post but I still want to post about my spring break! It was amazing. Let me show you how amazing it was: Brittanys spring break happened to be at the same time! So she was back for that week and getting to see her after this long was wonderful! She had a get together so that everyone could come to see her as well as to celebrate her birthday.
Another day, Whittney and I went shopping. We have a tendency to try on weird sunglasses then take pictures. It makes for a good time.
The next day we went to the st. park. I got to take pictures which of course was wonderful. I took this shot of Whittney and I just really like it! When we were there we thought we saw a dead guy across the lake. He was really close to the water and not moving. We yelled but he still didn't move. We were not sure what do but then luckily he did move.
While we were at the park, we sat down to talk and decided we wanted to go on a road trip. We debated many places but finally decided that going to stay with my aunt and uncle would be the best (and most affordable) option. I was very excited, not only because I would get to see them but because Whittney was going and she hasn't ever gone up there with us. Plus, I'd never gone with just a friend either.
So the next day we got up and drove three hours straight. We made good time and had to wait for my cousins to come home from school. While we waited we played an intense game of Mario Kart on the Wii which was crazy! Then they finally got home and we got to spend time with them-
Brooke had to leave to take the dog to the vet and while she was gone we took pictures with Jessica. Peace out dudes!
Haha. Elephant faces with Jessica in the middle!
The next day my cousins had school again, so we settled for some shopping. We went into abercrombie for the first time. The mall there was so big we spend a good few hours in there!

After we went to the mall, we found our way to the lake. It was too cold to swim. There were still ice chunks in the water but we told people we did swim and they believed us! crazy! But we did take our shoes off and enjoy the sand beneath our toes. And we did dip our feet in but it was so cold!
It was Whittneys first time at the lake! So she wrote her name in the sand and got the traditional vacation memorabilia picture.
Of course I got to practice my photography skills, my camera did not leave my side! Here is my beautiful cousin Brooke.
And the beautiful cousin Jessica!
Whittney took over the camera for a little while- so I got a picture with Brooke!
The next day we woke up and had to head home so that we could make it back for Whittneys dads surprise party. We took a group picture before we left which included my cousins new puppy Bandit! He is one crazy dog!

I really did have the most awesome spring break. It was certainly better than I thought it was going to be. I just had such a great time, I am hoping that Whittney did too and that we will get to take a trip like this again- when its warmer and we can swim!!
