Trick or Treat

Okay, let me preface this post with the fact that I'm not the type of person that regularly dresses up my dog in cute little outfits. That being said I recently came across these little costumes, and well... I just couldn't resist.

It all started with this one. I had to pick these little horns for my parent's dog. Trust me, there are numerous reasons why this is appropriate.

Doesn't he look thrilled?

Then, what to get for Miss Binx or rather Miss B.
Can't you hear her say "Seriously?..."

No, she needs something tougher. After all she's the Snake Slayer. (That's what they nicknamed her at the vet's office. They even put it on her chart.)

Holy Wiener Schnitzel Batman!
It's Bat-Puppy!

Still, that didn't seem to fit either.
Then I found the perfect costume.

After all, she is the Princess, or at least she likes to think so.

"Now where's my treat?"

For several weeks now, I've been toying with the idea with starting a Facebook Fan page to for my photography. It would be a nice place anyone could go to view some of my work without having to be my "friend," because I'm just not one of those people that will friend just anybody.

I mean complete strangers don't need to know when I'm having a "Monday" or my undying love for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, or when my cooking goes and awry and I burn my dinner (which I just did by the way.) Probably my Facebook friends don't even want to know this but it's part of the package of being my friend.

I know your saying, "Why not just post more on your blog create another website?" Facebook is easy. Easy to upload to, organize, comment, share and tag. That, and practically everyone is on Facebook now. Heck, even my 85 year-old grandma is on Facebook.

Anyway, I hesitated in doing a Fan page because I worried that it might be viewed as conceited. I posted this question as my status a while back, and all my friends said to go for it. I told myself, "Why not? It's only Facebook."

So I am.

I know I'm not Adams, Liebowitz, Avedon, or Stieglitz. I'm also not [b]ecker, Jose, or Jasmine (West Coast wedding photogs, whose blogs I follow.)

As I state on my page: I'm just a girl that likes to play with a camera. Thank you for checking out my work. I appreciate your comments.

I'm truly humbled by the number of fans I've already acquired. I feel like Sally Field accepting the Academy award. "You like me. You really like me." Then I have to remind my self. It's only Facebook.

Oh, and if you are interested in friending me on Facebook, send me a message first, and be forewarned. I do LOVE Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

What is this?

So this afternoon I took a walk out to the garden and I saw these red things. From a distance they looked like red chili peppers, but as I got closer the looked like little tongues sticking out of the ground. The appear to be hollow, and I have know idea what the heck they are.

If you can enlighten me, please me a comment.

Four years and counting

I spent last weekend with my friends Brandon and Dawn, celebrating their son's first birthday. However, they have more than one reason to celebrate this week. Four years ago today they said "I do."

Congratulations Dawn and Brandon. I wish you many, many more happy years to come.
