Photo Story Friday: Hanging Out

This week Master Q has been very clingy. Every night I went to work he was there to tell me not to go and how much he would miss me :( So last night we hung out together in his bed for awhile playing on my iPod touch. Until he crashed face down on me! lol

Sorry for the camera phone pics, its the easiest way to get pics here lately lol

Photo Story Friday: Yucky Week

This week has been an icky one. It's my long week at work so I never get as many pictures, plus I'm simply trying to get more taken. But then this week to add to the work stress Master Q became sick late Wed. night. Daddy was with him while he threw up most the night. I was off Thur. night so I was with him through the fever and achyness, poor boy just could not get comfy, then his throat started hurting :( 
Fortunately he was starting to feel better today! 

Watching some cartoons

Mommy's Treat

Playing with the camera phone editor!

Closest kiss he'd give! lol 

Kicking those germs butts!

One Minute Writer: Right

Today's Writing Prompt: Right

How do you know when someone is right for you?
I know when I've found the right person for me when they can make me laugh, laugh at my dumb jokes, when we can spend hours together doing nothing and having the best time doing it. The right person makes you feel like you can't live without them, stops your heart when your away and loves you no matter your faults.

Weekend Construction

Just and FYI my blog may be under construction at times this weekend, I am having it all redone by a great friend! Check her out...Dashing Designs

Fix It Friday #102

Haven't done this in awhile so it's nice getting back at it! Edit 1 Started with some tweaking layers in PSE RAW in the exposure & contrast. Moved on and used a layer of Pioneer Womans Slight Sharpen & Slight Light. Then cloned out the white on the eye lid. Last added Pioneer Womans Boost and tweaked the layers a bit. On Edit 2 I added a Gradient layer to create the B/W.

Thanks to Angie Arthur Photography for the adorable little girl to edit, I only have boys! lol

Five Question Friday

Questions for Friday, June 10th:

1. How close to your childhood dreams is your life now?
Childhood dreams? Wow, nope not very close. I wanted to be a teacher, I've got an Associates Degree in Chemical Dependency and work in a Residential Facility for Chemically Dependent teens. So maybe kinda close. lol

2. What is one must have item for the summer?
Capris, a comfy tshirt and sandals. Nicely painted toes are a must too ;)

3. Do you have your kids stay up on school stuff during summer vacation? (Or, if you don't have kiddos, did your parents make you keep up on school stuff during summer?)
I read during the summers a bit, not much. My parents never made me keep up on it. My son is not in school yet but we are always teaching him new things as he is 4. The older 2 stepboys I try to encourage to read as much as they will during the summer months. 
4. Do you can or freeze fresh produce?
Nope, my mom always did but I've got a rather blackish thumb lol

5. Do you get ready for the day first thing in the morning?
Depends on the 'morning' if it's my morning (evening) getting up for work then yes. On my days off it depends on what we have going on.

Wordless Wednesday!

Last Wednesday we took the kids to the local Ramada that has a huge waterpark! It's called Buccaneer Bay and has a Tiki Bar next to it! Daddy & I enjoyed some quiet poolside time after the pool closed later in the evening!
They had a blast and look at that pirate ship!!! They also had a full size twisty water slide! It was awesome!
