Birthdays, Dentist, Friends, & Shoes

I feel like I haven't blogged in forever. Life has been so busy lately. I can't even keep my days straight. I don't want to forget some of the things that have been going on so I thought I'd better stop for a minute and write them down.

This past weekend I got the opportunity to play photographer. I had so much fun with it. A sweet friend and coworker's little boy turned three. She let me crash the party and take some pictures. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed taking pictures. Ever since the husband bought me the new camera I've been dreaming of turning photography into a side job. Of course I have a long ways to go in learning how to use my camera and about photography in general. I have a gift certificate to take a class at a local camera store, but I'm doing a Beth Moore Bible study on the only night they offer the class.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from the birthday party. The birthday boy and his mommy.

I went straight from that birthday party to another birthday party. The Weavers were celebrating August and October birthdays. It was a sweet time with family.

The husband has been out of town for the past few days. The SAN (whatever that is) came in so he had to go to Dallas. Last night I occupied myself by having dinner with a sweet friend. We ended up sitting there talking until the place closed. Oops! I really enjoyed it. Too busy talking to take any pictures.

Today I had a dentist appointment. If you have been reading this blog for awhile you know that I absolutely hate going to the dentist. Today I was getting a filling and having my tooth shaped for a crown. Andrew had planned to take me, but then had to go out of town. I opted for the gas this time. I'd never had that before. I liked it! It really helped to keep me calm. The dentist was really great. I didn't feel a thing. :) I have to go back the first week of November to get my permanent crown and another filling. Oh joy!

I finally joined pinterest. I'm not sure I see what the big deal is. I have always saved things in folders in my favorites. This isn't any different other than I can see what others like. Just haven't been able to jump on this bandwagon.

I have however jumped on the Toms bandwagon. I have two pairs of Toms and two pairs of Bobs (Skecher's version of Toms). I actually prefer my Bobs. In my opinion, I think they are better made. I've been trying to convince the husband that I need these...

I also like these

One pair at a time. :)

  1. So glad you got to have dinner with Jen...she was telling me last night how much she enjoyed it!

    I hate the dentist too. I'm so behind on my cleanings since having a baby and getting pregnant again. They keep calling and I keep ignoring their calls. Ugh.

    I have my eye on a new pair of TOMS too. I think the fact that they give a pair to a small child in another country means we should buy lots of them!! :)
