Photography, New Bags and a Trophy

Hello ladies and gents!

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments about our anniversary! Every comment just made my day. It's so nice to have a wonderful group of friends via blogworld! You guys truly are awesome!
and another thanks for all of the lovely comments about my pictures! I really love photography and taking pictures. I really do want to pursue a side career in photography, but goodness do I have A LOT to learn, and when I say a lot I mean A LOT! But I'm just practicing and having fun with it all at the moment. One of our friends just had a baby and I am working with them on planning a photo shoot for Addison (their new baby girl.) I have never done anything like that before, so it will definitely be an experience, I know it will be fun no matter. Addison is so adorable, she will make my pictures look great, just by her preciousness! (Is that a word?)

Anyway...... you guys have to check this out!
I just got my very first Gussy bag the other day and completely adore it.

It's a brand new, custom made makeup bag by Gussy herself!
Isn't it precious????

Now here's the scoop, Gussy custom makes everything; from makeup bags, purses, clutches, wallets, coin purses, computer bags, baby totes, you name it, she can do it!
I loved my makeup bag so much I am looking at having her make me a wallet and a new laptop bag. She's got so many cute and fun fabrics that you can choose from or you can look at the FANTASTIC items she has already made on her:

blog here!


or her Etsy shop HERE.

She has some adorable things guys,
you really have to check her out!!


So, the weather is coo coo here! I went for a walk in the park with my friend Tara today, the weather started out nice and pretty, but as we were heading back home, it starts raining on us, and once I finally get back home the sun is shining and the sky is blue??? I feel like I'm back in Oklahoma ;) I swear the weather changes as fast as I lose my attention ;) (Or so my husband says!)

But I can prove that I am a good listener!!! This trophy right here proves it! See, Take a look at this:

Yup, you read that right Best Listener at Vacation Bible School, 1987!

Okay but in all honesty, trophy aside, I really do have a child's attention span! I can't help it, but I'm working on it! I once had trophy winning listening skills and will strive for that again. ;)

Tomorrow is Friday and boy I can't wait. There is a festival going on this weekend in Wiesbaden and they are already setting up for it! Lots of food and beer/wine, now that's my kind of festival!
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

I just saw this story:
"In news related to Miss California being stripped of her title this week, authorities at Vacation Bible Schools (VBS) have begun a full investigation into their awarding process, claiming that some award recipients may not be fulfilling their obligations regarding the specific awards they were given. Most notably, allegations were released that the 1987 Best Listener award was given out before all details of the recipient were known.”

We’re not giving up that award, no matter what they say!!!

Ha ha very funny! I'm never giving up that award ;)

just looked at your Colmar pics on facebook - really nice!! Although, I'd never guess it was France...it looks just like several of the little German towns I've visited :)
