(Two) Weeks In Photos


Let's face it. I'm not good at blogging regularly. Just like I'm not good at taking photos everyday. But I'm okay with that. I want blogging and photography to be happy parts of my life. So I try not to pressure myself into having to do either. That said, I do feel bummed out when my favorite bloggers don't update their blogs regularly. Hahahah! I know, I know... the double standard!

Wandering our way to the Santa Monica Pier.
Walking around Third Street Promenade.
Ever since we've moved to Los Angeles (a total of 4 months), we've had visitors almost every other week. I love when friends and family come see us. But I am not a touristy person. Even when I am the tourist. And of course, all of our visitors want to do touristy things. My problem is that I'm a major germaphobe, so I worry that I'll catch some horrid disease from the large crowds. And guess what? We took my brother and his girlfriend to the Santa Monica Pier, and I came home with the worst stomach bug. Ever. I didn't even eat anything there. Sigh. I got sick a few days before I had to fly off to Tulsa to teach CKC.


Yes, we were having fun!
But in the end, it all worked out. I had a great time at CKC. People in Tulsa are so kind. Plus I got to meet the fab Deena Wuest. She's not only an amazing scrapbooker, but also a really nice and generous person. Kelly and Lorie were there too, so I got to hang out with them in the Studio Calico booth, and at dinner. The venue was right next to the nicest Target ever. I went there twice in four days.
Deena towering over me.
KP, Lorie, and I on our last night in Tulsa.
But the most important event in the past two weeks was my youngest turning six. I can't believe how time has flown. I knit him this cake with candle hat for his first birthday, and it turned out a bit on the large side. I'm so glad it still fits him, and that he will still wear it. Even if it's just to humor me.

Happy Birthday, not-so-little guy!

I'll be back tomorrow to share some layouts.

Glad you are feeling better, and I LOVE that your boy will still wear that birthday hat.

Sorry you were sick! Looks like good times at CKC and happy birthday to your little guy. :) Love the hat!

Happy Birthday Luke!! I count our 'friendship birthday' by his...and can't believe he's six already. :)

So sorry you got sick, but glad you felt better and had a good time at CKC.

I sound inane. I never know what to say in blog comments. Glad you updated, though. Heee!

We had a great time seeing all of you at CKC and hope you are feeling better and having fun with the kids now!

Great photos, even if there aren't many! I'm glad you updated your blog. I've been like you this summer... not blogging much but hoping that my favourite bloggers update regularly. (and even when they do, I don't always have time to comment. bad Barb.)
