New buttons!

I've been doing a lot of blogging over at my photography + design blog lately. Mainly because I have no idea what to blog about. I was having a blog block.

My giveaway just ended last night. It was for a free photo session with a $100 print credit, or for an 8x10 of one of my art prints. I ended up having 2 winners, one for the session and one for the art print. It was exciting to do this. My 1st ever giveaway. I've continued the "After Giveaway Sale" for those who didn't win or might be interested in my services or art prints!! Check it out. As soon as I get twice as many followers on either this blog or my photography blog I will hold another giveaway. Right now I have 13 on here. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pass my blog around. Here are both of my buttons and I will put them up in my sidebar as well.

In other news........The last week we've been trying to get our yard cleaned up for the rain that hit yesterday. We had a tree (the only tree in our yard) that was tore down last summer because it was dead. Now I want to plant a new tree and bushes in the yard to make it more lively.
I was out getting all leaves, sticks, needles, and dead grass raked up AND cleaning dog poop. The joys of home ownership (well sort of). We live in a mobile home. And the yard it part of the lot and we have to pay "lot rent." I hope someday we can own a "REAL" home and not a poorly built mobile home. But for now this is where we live and thats ok. We have a huge yard, 2 sheds for our stuff and a very nice porch/mudroom addition to the house.
Because we live in Wyoming our planting season is really short. I really want to make a little garden in our yard, but its hard to right now when our weather changes drastically all the time!

And here is Wesley. 13mo old now. Messy face, and not happy that he couldn't get over that gate. Maybe soon he will learn how to climb those stairs, which are tile and they are a bit bigger than an average step.
For the rest of the day I'm going to going to work on
  • dishes,
  • laundry,
  • putting some boxes in the shed of Wesleys clothes that don't fit,
  • taking a nice long walk with my friend with the dog and Wesley,
  • and making Taco Salads for dinner. Yum!
  • OH and making a menu for the next 2 weeks.
  • And if I get time take all the recycling to the bins. (We are not fortunate enough in Laramie to get curb side pick up)
And I need to get my camera out and take some new photos. Maybe on our walk today I'll find something different to take a photo of. There isn't really alot of green yet (the grass is starting to sprout though).
