Underwater Dog Photography

I’ve always been jealous of people who own dogs that LOVE to swim. I’ve had four dogs in the course of my lifetime and all of them hated going in the water. I’d envy my friends who could throw a tennis ball into a lake or pool and have their dog JOYFULLY jump in after.

Genius Seth Casteel took these shots underwater. Something I’ve never seen done before. The faces are hilarious. Enjoy!

This one might be my favorite.

Unique and Adorable iPhone Cases

Ever since kicking my Droid to the curb and finally meeting the love of my life – my iPhone. I have been facinated by the MILLION of sites that house cases and accessories for the phone. I’ve come to the realization it is much cheaper to decorate my phone, rather than myself (this is what I keep telling myself, just go with it) So why not have fun with it?

As with many other occasions I often turn to Etsy. I’m sure most of you are familiar with the Online Marketplace but for those of you that aren’t – Etsy is a website that has hundreds of online boutiques. Handmade items, artwork, vintage shops. You can find anything on there. It’s much more fulfilling buying from someone on there then going to a mainstream shop and spending your money on factory made items!

Enter NapPage these ladies from Bankok make some kick-ass iPhone cases with the art of decoupaging.

de·cou·page

noun: The decoration of the surface of an object with paper cut-outs.

In this case, paper napkins. (Napkins..decoupage..NapPage..get it?)

So many unique styles and choices and reasonably priced! Check them out if your iPhone is looking a little.. naked.

Fresh Words

Well it’s a new year! Happy 2012, sure I’m a few weeks late.

As life is getting ahead of me I wanted to step back and see what makes me happy, truly. Blogging is not something that should be a job. It should be fun. I tweet, I pin, I post.

I have so many thoughts running around on my head – on social media,  ads, life. It’s time I just let that all go on here.

So bare with me kids, 2012 is starting fresh. I hope you like me.

I’m Thankful…

Sure, the leftovers are safely in their tupperware with care but this doesn’t give me any less of a reason to tell you what I’m thankful for.

  • Tightly made beds with fresh sheets
  • Early morning phone calls and texts
  • A workplace with positive energy, constantly. Great coworkers and a fun place to spend my days
  • Fresh hot cocoa made on the stove
  • Puppy kisses
  • Friends who know what you’re thinking even when you don’t say it
  • Christmas shopping, cookies and carols
  • Thanksgiving dinners with family that you only get to see a few times a year
  • Ice cream
  • Pictures
  • Sing-a-longs in the car
  • Fuzzy slippers
  • Down Comforters
  • Love

What are you thankful for?? Don’t be thankful just on Holidays. Be thankful every day for what you have. Hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving Break!

Hurri-“pain” in my ass

So it’s Tuesday.

What a weekend huh? Irene hit Annapolis hard this weekend but didn’t seem to come as strong as the ol’ weather man originally warned us. Near and far people were freaking out for Irene. Buying out the stores, stocking up on all camping gear sold in Target (seriously, ALL the marshmallow roasters?). When she came by my town Saturday we were ready. 8 bags of popcorn popped, ice in bags, lots of wine (priorities people), reading material etc. etc. I even went and bought fried chicken so I’d have something to eat that wasn’t beyond disgusting cold.

Saturday came, the rain the wind but nothing bad. I even took the dogs for a walk before it hit hard. Sun was out small drops on the deck. Then…

The Power was out.

7pm. Oh boy, was I excited. We lit candles had the flashlights ready and began to have cocktails, eat and read our books. Oh what fun. You never really appreciate the little things until they’re not there. Hot water, blowdryers…COFFEE??

The next morning I was on the hunt. Most places in most directions were in the same boat as me so I traveled up Rt. 2 until I found an open Dunkin’ Donuts! Shouts out to the Glen Burnie DD  they were more than accommodating to us crazies! I got the last Everything and Poppyseed bagel in the joint. So I was thrilled with that. The day was spent cleaning up the massive leave piles that fell in our yard and pool. We still have tons to go. 

I then got the brilliant idea to call BGE and see when our power would be back… “We should have all homes restored by late Friday night” Umm…what? 

Thankfully we got creative Sunday and reheated a bunch of leftovers on the grill. Yum! 

So that’s where we are folks. It’s Tuesday and I have yet to feel the warmth of a warm fluorescent light on my skin since Saturday! All the food is ruined, I can’t shower at home (thank goodness for gym memberships). I have eaten more junk food than I’d like to mention, and I’ve read..a LOT. 

How did you get through the storm? Was Irene as scary as we thought? 

Yup, this was my weekend

Let us begin. (100 things about me)

I think the only way anyone can really connect, really look forward to reading someones blog is when you can relate and feel like you know the person. A personal blog is more like a friendship. You can’t have friendship unless you know the nitty gritty.

So consider this your introduction to the life of moi.

I think therefore I am.

A wise Anchorman once said. If you have something worth saying, shout it from the top of the moutain. No mountain? Use a microphone and a newsroom.

Well folks, no newsroom here. I have a blog, a mac – and tiny fingers.

here we go, get ready.
