Catching Up!

Yay! I finally have some pictures to post! And also, major thanks to Nicole and Dan, for helping me to learn useful technical stuff and awesome Photoshop tricks I would never be able to figure out on my own. They are awesome.

Now, about this picture. Do you know how much my abs hurt after taking pictures of my feet in the air? I was just in the most unnatural positions, trying to get this crazy shot! And I also ordered these toe socks special from eBay to use them on my website. I'm pretty sure they came from China, so ... woo! Exotic! I'm going to lighten the picture up a bit before putting it on ye olde site, but in general, I was pretty pleased with the results.

This is my super handsome baby puppy Flash! (He's full grown, but he's still a puppy to me.) I love this puppy so much! And yes, that's my bed, and no, it's not made. Life is like that sometimes. Or, if you're me, most of the time. Can you even get over how cute that face is?

Same shot in black and white. I like the tones but actually prefer the color version.

My first avocado I ever cut open! I got a whim to make guacamole, and you know me--I do like to indulge the whims. I really didn't know what to put in it, so I just bought some stuff that sounded good, busted out my handy chopper, and went to work. It turned out pretty good, but as you can see, I didn't quite let the avocado get ripe enough because I couldn't wait. Still, yellow guacamole is tastier than you might think. Possibly because all you can really taste is the garlic. :)

Okay, now this is a picture from my brunch last weekend at the Buehlers'. Blue milk! Pretty crazy! Except really it's just the glass making it look blue. And it's not mine. I kind of hate milk, passionately. Don't get me wrong, I like dairy products--cheese, ICE CREAM, but something about the texture of milk grosses me out immensely. Plus, I worked at a Ritter's Frozen Custard in high school and would regularly come home smelling like sour milk. Oh, and I worked for like two weeks at a coffee shop in college, and I also hated the smell of steamed milk.
Anyway, enough about my weird milk thoughts and just let me say that I loved the bubbles in it. So pretty!

This is Meghan, the Buehler's kiddo, and she is THE SMARTEST child I have ever met in my entire life. I hadn't seen her since she was a baby, but she is amazing and I love her madly. I have another picture that is totally out of focus of her making a hilarious face, and I may have to post that one later as well. Also, she may have taken over as best behaved child I've ever met. I feel totally fortunate that me and Billy have friends with such good kids.

Here is Meghan in some awesome light, looking very eyelashy.

And you know, usually I am more of a "color" girl, but I really LOVE the black and white here. This is definitely my favorite picture I've done in awhile.

Alright! So that was more than three pictures, which is awesome, and maybe next week I'll spread them out a little bit more. Or not! Anything can happen!
