Good morning, my beloved sunshine! Please come out to play. I have a fun photo shoot this morning and we want you to join us. :)

love, me

I am so sleepy today. However, waking up early was totally worth it and I am excited to go try out a few ideas this morning with a lovely lady. :)

So, I am off to get some coffee! I will see you later, I am sure. Have a beautiful day and make someone else have a reason to smile today. :)

love, scout

P.S. If you haven’t done so, please read my last post. I posted it last night. Thanks! :)))

*All photos from weheartit.


I awoke this morning to a blanket of snow covering everything outside my window. It was the good kind of snow, too! I wanted to play but knew I had work to do. So, I pouted while getting ready. After walking to my car, I realized that I needed to let my car defrost a bit… and a smile was slapped across my face! I ran inside after turning on my car, grabbed my camera and headed back out to go on a mini walk for a few minutes. I didn’t even leave my front lawn. In fact, I think the best photo I took was the one I shot standing on our “welcome mat.” (I put that term in quotations because it is hardly a mat at all, but a piece of carpet that was on the porch when we moved in. Ahh, we are a resourceful bunch!)  ;-)

There is really only one thing I would change about this photo if I could. However, I was quite surprised to see how this turned out and think it just might be one of my new favorite photos (of this kind) that I have taken to date. As I edit more from this morning, I will post them on my Flickr photostream. There are only a few, but I am really glad I took them. By noon, this snow had already melted.

In other news, Will made a fantastic new banner for our etsy shop! You should check it out! I am working on a few more headbands to go in the shop, as well as a couple more prints. I am hoping to be able to update it sometime this weekend. Don’t worry, we’ll let you know for sure. But it wouldn’t hurt to keep checking. ;-)

Finally, I want to officially announce that I am working on having an Alice in Wonderland inspired costume party in celebration of my 25th birthday! It will be March 6, 2010 and I want all friends of mine to be there! I am working out the details with a few people right now, but details are coming very soon and there is a big possibility that this may end up being a whole weekend full of really fun stuff! So, I think it would be well worth a trip here, depending on how far away you are of course. Anyway, I wanted to make the announcement because this is something I am VERY excited about and want as many people to be able to come to as possible. So, if you are seriously interested in coming or can’t come but have awesome ideas/suggestions, feel free to email me at erinsunday3.5[at]gmail[dot]com. I hope to make this the best birthday party ever! :-D

So, I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you that I HATE TRAFFIC!!

Today, all I dealt with were a-holes and “idiots” as I called some of them. I know I shouldn’t say that about people, but I was furious at the time and well… call me weak. ;-) So, yeah traffic. The only other thing I can say is…

Ewwww. Get me away from it!

love, scout

**Sorry for the delayed post. I couldn’t upload anything on here last night so I am posting it now. :)

This week was so full of family! I loooooved it! Here are a few photos of my favorite moments from it.

1. Stuffing my face with tons and tons of food.

2. Driving (with the boy) to a place where I am practically unreachable. :-)

3. Crocheting up a storm. I sold all but one headband in my etsy shop! Trying to make more and fast. :-)

4. Bowling and spending time with the boy (SO CUTE!)…

… and his wonderful family!

5. Hanging out with his niece (so much fun)! She has grown too quickly since I first met her. ;-)

6. Capturing moments like this. It is really my favorite thing to do. Everybody was surprised I managed to snap a photo of Will’s dad smiling. :-)

7. Finding something unique in the ordinary.

8. Realizing (again) that God makes all things beautiful.

9. Playing in the snow with the love of my life. (I love it when he smiles, so I was ecstatic to capture this!)

10. Having a very white Christmas!!!

I enjoyed this trip so much! There are many other photos, which I will share later, but this is it for now. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break. What was your favorite moment(s)?

love, scout

*All photos were taken by me except for the one of me crocheting (which was taken by Will).

Hey everyone! I wanted to write a quick post to tell you all that I will be out in the woods for the next few days (until Sunday) without internet access. I don’t even think I will get cell phone reception out there. I am actually a little excited to be getting away and just being with Will and his family. I love them so much. They are very, very special to me and I adore every chance I get to spend time with them. :) Before I go, I wanted to share a few photos I took the other night playing around with manual focus for the first time at my Dad’s.

That was a beautiful time, as well. I will miss my family so much this weekend. Christmas is always a bittersweet time for my family. Sure, it gets easier every year… but still… That is for another post. Maybe next Tuesday? We will see. :)

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, whether you celebrate Christmas or not. Enjoy the snow if you get it and dream of it if you don’t. I truly love you all and hope to unwrap lots of comments when I return. You all brighten my days over and over and I thank you for that. :)

love, scout

P.S. I did get only a handful of cards out so far. BUT here are some of the photos I have taken with the instax so far. Yep, we love it.

I love McDonald’s.

BAH hahaha No way! Eww. I actually hate McDonald’s. The only reason why I have that cup is because I wanted a soda and it was the closest thing at the time.

I actually had a really hard time figuring out something to tell you folks this week. It kind of snuck up on me. So, Will suggested favorite holiday tradition. To be honest, I think I am all holiday-ed out for a while. I will say that I look forward to watching this sometime soon…

This is why I love Christmas. haha

Oh! And I watched this movie recently and I have to say…

Spock is hot!

Yeah… haha

Anyway, I am going to work on some photo editing until I pass out. What suggestions do you have for Tuesday topics??

love, scout

Elsie gave me an Instax 7s tonight when we went out for sushi. Can we say best Christmas present in a loooooooong time?? So excited! We’ve already taken a few photos already. I will show you all later.

In other news, I cannot finish all of the holiday cards this year. There were just too many and I couldn’t keep up after I got hurt. I promise to write you all letters in the next couple months. That is the best I can do, though. :-)

Well, I am off to get cards ready to mail tomorrow for those who sent me cards. Will and I are watching The Darjeeling Limited. Tonight is soooo good!
