I keep seeing this MckLinky logo around but didn’t take time to find out what it was all about till this week. It’s pretty cool. Since Mr. Linky is buggy lately this seems like a great replacement and improvement. Rather then have to track down blogs to add your link to like with Mr. Linky you write your post (and they are themed which I like) and link it to the MckLinky site. This week the theme is THREE THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ME
Hhhmmm I feel like I’m a pretty open book so I’m going to have to strain to come up with a measly three things.
1. In high school I worked in a very high end jewelry store. My Grandma worked there just about all my life and taught me how to string pearl necklaces. It was tedious work, but I loved it. I have pretty much worked nonstop since I was 15 years old. When Lily was first born and I was new to this whole stay at home Mom thing I felt sort of lazy and weird to not be “working”, I no longer feel that way. I work darn hard taking care of Lily.
2. I spent every Wednesday night at my Grandparents house up until high school and then sometimes even after. We were/are very close and I miss them and the rest of my family. This closeness is one reason I waited till I was 32 to have a baby. I now live 1500 miles away and I hate that Lily won’t have that closeness to family that I did growing up. But there is no way in hell I’m moving back to California, just no way. I guess this could have been two things but I’m still going to add a third official thing.
3. I’m a pack rat and lazy but mostly about mail. This adds up to a very messy computer desk. I always have mail stacked up under my monitor stand and on top of my tower. I pay everything online so I don’t know why I have so much dang mail anyway, but I do. Every so often I’ll stack all the mail up and toss some of it but put the rest in a box or a drawer till its so old that I know I won’t need it ever again and then toss it. Its such a waste of time and space, I really need to get better organized. By the way I’m lazy in general, not just about mail. 🙂
4. Because I want to throw this in, I’m obsessed with pictures of my beautiful girl. I really want to take better pictures so if anyone has any suggestions or knows of good websites I’m all ears and eyes. I can’t afford a great new camera so I’m stuck with what I have for now which is a Sony cyber-shot. It works pretty well but its no DSLR or anything. So because of this obsession here’s another picture or two of Lily.
I’m totally obsessed with taking pics of my little one too! And I am also stuck with a point and shoot – you seem to make it work though, because those pictures are darling! 🙂
u’r dd is beautiful there is a blog called does a I heart faces challenge every week with some beautiful shots and tips too.
i’m like you withthe mail but it stacked on my kitchen counter so bAD
CHEKC OUT THE BLOG LISTED AFTER YOURS SHE ALWYS has the cutest photos
I LOVE the description of your computer desk and your rationale!! We are pack rat twins from different mothers! (And for the same reasons…paper bills and online paying) I jsut de-cluttered the “bill counter” (the extension of my computer deks and its contents). The kids were so impressed. I did so much tossing and I actually FILED in a file cabinet, the stuff that really needed to be kept. One daughter commendted that it would last a week. BOOOO HISSSSSS
Love your blog, hop over and see me sometime at Smithsoup!
I am obsessed with taking pictures as well, sadly I don’t know any sites, however I once joined flicker and learned alot from other people. They have groups and such to learn and ask questions 🙂
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: you have the cutest clothes for her!
What a fun tradition that you spent the night at your grandparents every Wednesday night through the school years. Did you have siblings and, if so, did you all spend the night there together?
Thanks a bunch. My girl is so much more stylish then I could ever dream to be.
No my sisters usually stayed on Tuesday’s if memory serves.
