what’s pink and silver and turquoise all over?

Tonight I’m working on making my friend’s slideshow for her wedding, so I’ve got bridesmaid duties on the brain. I got sooooooo much awesome help from my stylin blog readers when I asked for help with what to wear with my oh so cute bridesmaid dress. So much so that I was totally overwhelmed and…

    you = HOT.

bad dogs and dirty toes

After I write a depressing post like my last one I try to hop on as soon as I can afterward to say, “I’m ok! I’m not huddled in a corner with a tub of Ben & Jerry’s.” (Perhaps with a French Vanilla cone, but not a whole tub.) So here’s a little bit of…

    Glad you’re doing ok. Cute pic of Miles’ feet, lol. I should grab a pic of some seriously dirty little boy feet one of these days, they require the hose sometimes before he’s allowed in the house. LOL

    I think most anyone who loves a dog in their life won’t be grossed out. 😉 Heck, one of our foster dogs took a drink of my coffee the other day and I kept on drinking it…okay, wait, that may have crossed a line. Sorry! Such great pics of everyday life, love it! =)

    Oh, I love those pugs! 🙂 There is a lady on our street that has two pugs and everytime I see her out walking them I think of you guys.

    love the toes and i love dog people….that doesn’t gross me out in the least!!!

  • Sara TJune 29, 2009 - 8:11 pm

    I find myself going to this website daily to check out your life. Your attitude about life, and your photos and commentary on the everyday moments make me stop and give myself a daily reminder. Thanks for the encouragement, it makes my heart feel good!!!

    Could you put two cuter photos together? Don’t you love how dogs help clean up messes?!

my brain is still on analog

Today I had one of those days where I would have loved to have crawled up in a small space and snuggled up with a blankie. That’s the great thing about being two. For the most part, you can do that whenever you want. This is a hard time of year for me, even though…

    I’ll get on that off button for you, stat 🙂 Love to you friend!

    Hey Betsy, I was thinking about you and Andy the other day. I remember your post from last year about July 4th. My thoughts are with you. You’re a strong woman and you have an amazing husband who stands by you and helps your through these times. I have no doubt that Andy is right there with you, also helping you pull through. No one expects you to keep a smile on and act like you don’t remember. My body does the same thing in the middle of October b/c that was when my grandmother was submitted to Hospice and passed 2 weeks later. Different situation of course…but i’ll never forget those last moments and memories. But, yes hopefully the switch will come soon. Jes

    Thinking of you and sending you sunshine….

  • Maya LaurentJune 26, 2009 - 1:22 pm

    Wish I could help you find that off button! Sending prayers your way in hopes for the TV to dwindle.

  • LindsayJune 26, 2009 - 1:29 pm

    Im thinking of you Bets, and sending you happy thought! Might we see you at there July 4th?

  • MichelleJune 26, 2009 - 1:53 pm

    (((hugs))) & prayers for you Betsy. 🙂

    These photos are seriously amazing! You’ve got skills.

    Great site too. I like how personal you get on here. We’ll be following you from now on. Aloha.

  • SherryJune 26, 2009 - 5:05 pm

    You certainly have had a double whammy in your life…really know what you are feeling…Graduation Party for son of my daughter, brings me to my knees. I miss and need both Andy and Penny. Now!


  • MelJune 26, 2009 - 5:22 pm

    I feel like I need to share a little bit of my life over the past few days with you. I do this with intent to help you realize even more like I have how blessed we are. How good life is… When u have a chance read my friends blog which I actually posted last night. I hope it brings peace to your heart to know you are not alone in the everyday battles of emotion. 🙂 hang in there girl!!

  • ErinJune 27, 2009 - 2:31 am

    Bets I’m thinking of you and sending you thoughts of peace as always. I’m sure the 4th will be bittersweet, but try to not only remember Andy, but also focus on all the good and beautiful things in your life, and of course, know that Andy is loving them and enjoying them right along with you. xoxo

  • ChristenJuly 31, 2009 - 10:53 pm

    Betsy, I have been following your blog for the last few months… since my family lives in Ft. Wayne and I grew up in Northern Indiana. I do photography ‘on the side’ of working full-time for a pregnancy center… but anyways, I just wanted to say #1. Your work is beautiful and inspiring. #2. Your stories bring tears and laughter to my eyes. #3. I will be praying God’s peace over your heart as I can’t imagine what it feels like to go through that kind of experience with your husband…

best bridal shower ever (that was my goal at least)

Unless this is your first time reading this blog, you know that my best friend Amy is getting married soon. She is THE BOMB and I’m over the moon happy that she is getting married. We have both been in and to a million weddings, but as much as Amy might be over the fuss…

  • Kelly (Daphne Photo Studio)July 1, 2009 - 4:55 pm

    These are all such great ideas – you are an awesome bridesmaid!! I am throwing a shower for my sis-in-law and I’m going to steal some of these ideas if that is ok with you :):)

the sweetest thing

One of the things I want captured in my life right now is when one of us is holding Miles and we’ll ask for kisses and he’ll go back and forth between us giving kisses one right after another to me and then to John. Oh, it just makes our hearts explode. So for now,… Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
