thoughts & secrets..

Amazing image..

*Some thoughts*
-My birthday is on Saturday, July 4th. Not sure how I'm going to celebrate it yet. Yikes...I'm turning 28!
-I still want to make plans to visit a vineyard. Soon! Very soon..
-I don't want the summer to end..it's already going too fast for me.
-I received my Sublime Stitching order today in the mail and I'm anxious to get started.
This popped into my head yesterday for some reason.
Does anyone remember Sweet Secrets from the 80's? :-) I had a couple of them--a blonde-haired one for sure. I don't know what made me think of these but when I did I had to do a search for them. I've said it before and I'll say it again. We had the BEST toys in the 80's!
Have a nice evening!

~corn fields & dresses~

I had a fun and adventurous shoot with my friend, Jen last night. The corn field I had in mind actually worked out wonderfully for pictures. It was a still rather hot outside around 7:00 pm but we survived it. A little itchy from the grass after, too. :~)
Anyway, Jen is fabulous! I love her processing and she is just a blast to work with. We always have a great time together.
Here are some of the results:

I really like this dress and I don't know why. I never wear things like this, but maybe I should. Hmm...
Maybe I'll check it out this week.

What are your plans for today? =)

friday + cute things~

TGIF! I got this from Holly's blog. :)

Outside My Window
there is a little sunshine and some clouds. Maybe it will rain..

I Am Thinking
about photography and how I need to be shooting more. Lately I've been uninspired with my camera so I want to get that back.

I Am Thankful
that I'm alive today. There was too much sadness yesterday.

From The Kitchen
you can see the busy counter tops full of flowers, nuts, tomatoes, and avocados.

I Am Wearing
my VS polka dot pajamas and green tank top :~)

I Am Creating
~plans for next month.
~birthday gifts for people.

I Am Going
-to take a shower in about 5 minutes so I can start my day.
-to Panera this afternoon. I'm excited since I've never been there.
-to try and relax today. Hopefully no more headaches.
-to read more.
-to start my detox very soon. Maybe tomorrow..

Around The House:
coffee (of course), school stuff, today's newspaper, sunflowers in a vase

One of My Favorite Things:
eating watermelon anytime day or night. The smell and the deliciousness reminds me of swimming and summertime. I just love it!

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Weekend:
-watch "Firefly" on Blu-ray
-gym (if my legs aren't sore still..)
-finish my assignments for this week to turn in
-a possible photo shoot on Sunday
-start my Wonderland journal kit

I just bought this owl kit from RVA last night.
(I'm really becoming fond of owl things as of late--maybe I will start collecting them. hmm...)

Very sad news today. I was just listening to Michael the other day in my car. "Thriller" was my favorite album and "Billie Jean" was always my favorite song. Rest in peace, Michael. You will always be remembered.


Farrah will also be missed. What a beauty she was.

Good news! =)
Tim Burton is doing "Alice in Wonderland"! I cannot be excited enough! Not only has that been my favorite movie ever since I was a little girl, I have collected Alice memorabilia for many, many years. Oh, I'm so anxious!
Look at the cast!
Speaking of wonderland, we watched "Phoebe in Wonderland" through Netflix last night. I really enjoyed the creativity in that film- it was entertaining to watch. :)

Today's goals:
-study/start assignments for the week
-post office
-visit grandma
-make a birthday card
-get blood work done
Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

Best Movies I've seen this summer (so far)..

Since we have a Netflix account for the summer, we are watching a TON of movies! Some new, some old, some classics...it's a lot of fun.

Here are my favorites so far:
(we have much more to go!)
Benny & Joon
Little Shop of Horrors
Wendy and Lucy
The Reader
Any recommendations for movies? I like all kinds--action, comedy, drama, foreign, musicals..etc.

I had an appointment to see my foot doctor today to check on the progress of my stress fracture. Well, the good news is that it's healed. Finally! The bad news is that it's still giving me pain so I had to get a Cortisone injection. Ouch! That really hurt. I've never gotten a shot in the foot before. It's not fun. I just hope it heals fast so I can do my cardio in the gym. :)
