Boredum = finding great new blogs!

So yesterday I was stuck in a hotel room ALL DAY! While my Husband went off to work. He is on "travel" to NJ, so I went with him and instead of staying with his parents like we usually do, he decided to book a hotel room. It's nice, but it does get pretty boring during the day. And so, here I am again today, stuck in the room while I wait for his return, which actually should be very soon.

Anyway, while I've been waiting for him I went off searching and wandering around some other blogs and came across this. It's a wonderful little blog and it makes me so ready for summer! or my vacation to Hawaii: one of the two... And this Island Life blog holds something called Aloha Friday! It's just a little way to celebrate Friday, and they ask their readers a question each Friday, so I decided that I'll give it a try! So, here is your Aloha Friday question:

What would you make if you could only use two - four ingredients for dinner? ( I changed the number to a range, lol, I did see that it would be a little difficult with just two)

The feedback

Well it wasn't much feedback on the change of the colors for my blog, but I did get some. So I took both, (lol), into consideration and this is what the finale look will be for now. I am very happy with this look, (although the green links still don't go, but I believe it gives a nice pop of color, lol), so this will be the "new" blog look for now!! let me know what you think! :) oh, and I keep missing out on wordless Wednesday... so I will post a favorite picture of mine from Memorial Day.

Time for a change...

So, yes, I figured that it was time for a change. I want to stay simple, but I'm tired of the black. Let me know what you think.

On the search ... but fantasy of course.

So my husband began the hunt for a telephoto lens since we still only have the lens we got with our Pentax K20D. Although I do not believe this is possible any time soon since we really don't have the extra money lying around for a new lens; although it would be so nice to have a new one! Well, here are the lens we are looking at, PENTAX DA * 50-135mm F2.8 ED, and then there is the Pentax DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8, and lastly there is the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8. I think I'm leaning more towards the Sigma but the Pentax 55-300 seems nice too. But I don't think we will be getting a new lens anytime soon. Thats really all for the updates, I'll have to post back again later for my wordless Wednesday.

Still not getting ANY better at this...

So I'm still not any better at updating my blog as I would like. However, my boring life is the one to blame. For this, I am sorry. BUT... There are somethings I suppose that I could update you all on.

First of all, I am starting up my own photography business! I'm very excited about this opportunity and if all else fails, I at least get to be involved with my hobby a little more then than I am now. Although I'm not exactly the "pro-photographer" I would like to be, I still have fun behind that lens! I especially love taking pictures of children and babies! They seem to be full of joy and life and make that experience so much more! I will be so happy to be able to capture life most precious moments for anyone.

And the other thing, I think I have found out that I am developing some nasty allergies. I woke up Tuesday morning with a hideous looking swollen eye!! Two days of doctors and no answers, but at least the meds are working and the swelling is barely noticeable! for that, I am very happy and thankful!

Well thats all the random news I have for now. nothing to big or exiting, (well.. maybe the photography is exiting!) I hope you all enjoy your day! :)
