Making My Husband Cry "Uncle"

Please, I just need, like...five minutes. Please please please....

I begged my husband the other night for just five minutes, that's all I needed to blurt out what I needed for a short video. I knew it wouldn't be fancy, but I didn't need it to be. I just needed a few minutes because I couldn't hold the phone (Yes, I used my Blackberry to make a video. I know you are absolutely astounded by the video quality. lol) and flip my hair around at the same time.

The way I see it, who better to send to Seattle for a photography business workshop than a coffee-addicted mom? I can't be picked if I don't submit a video, right?

My husband actually considered making his own video begging Jasmine and creativeLIVE to pick me so he can stop filming me. Poor guy...it was definitely more than "just five minutes."


Welcome To Carlsbad

I really want to share photos of our new hometown, but I'm waiting until the weather gets nicer and everything is a little bit greener. Right now we are at the beginning of what I'll call "Brown Season." We have nasty wind storms and combined with dry land, we have lots of dust. It turns the sky brown and coats everything. This is when my husband prefers to have the windows open. Sigh.

I'm still waiting for the first signs of Spring to start blooming. There aren't buds on the trees, no sign of new grass. We're in the between stages of seasons. No snow, no grass.

Yesterday was nice before the wind picked up. The sky was an absolutely beautiful shade of blue and the river was visible running through town. (Obviously it's not visible in the photo. LOL. It's a small town and I'm going to have to pace myself so I can show you more than five photos and be done.)

We went for a drive over C Hill and I caught this coming down. Yes, I was driving and using my camera at the same time. On a winding hill. I live on the edge.

{I'm going to start publishing larger images on the blog. I don't think it's a layout issue if you're viewing through a reader, but it's a little wonky on the blog itself. One day I'll put on my deal-with-it hat, but that day is not today. LOL}
