I Heart Faces- Blue

smcolby057

This picture is one of my favorites from the entire summer, but I wasn't sure that it follows the rules, since it is silhouette. I thought long and hard about it, but finally decided to post it, because you can make out the outline of his face. I hope that is enough for it to qualify for judging.

And it does fit the blue category.

I took this picture one beautiful July night. Colby and I were going around to check on sprinklers, and he was worried that this one was broken. Luckily, it wasn't and we got to ride off into the sunset together.

It's nights like this one that make me feel blessed to live in the country.

Anyway, head over i heart faces for more great entries!




My Sister

Last weekend, I took my sister Ashley's senior pictures... They turned out AWESOME in my opinion, so I thought I would show a few of them here.

And believe me, this is only a FEW. I took over six hundred pictures. It was super hard to narrow them down to the absolute best ones.

This last one is my absolute favorite. It's just so light and free and dreamie.

Which one is you favorite?

True Talent

Way back in high school, I used to sing the National Anthem from time to time before basketball games. Believe me, I sounded nothing like this:



These are little girls between the ages of eight and thirteen and they can sing!

Of course, they've got nothing on Beyonce. (Just kidding.)

Oh My.

Isn't this just hillarious?!? My screenshot sucks, but I really tried to get it all on the page. I'm not sure what went wrong.

Oh My

But you can make your own page all Kayne-d out here. Believe me, it's the cool thing to do. It happened to Taylor so it should happen to you too.

Now, I've been a horrible blogger lately. My posting has been pretty much nonexistent. But I do have two very good reasons for this:

1.) I've had a horrible case of writer's block. I really haven't had much to say at all.

2.) I've had no time to pound anything out. If it won't flow fast and easy, then I haven't bothered. School is stressing me out and I think I may have entered my busiest semester yet.

I only have classes on Tuesday, Wednesday night, and Thursday. That means that I have fabulous weekends but super busy weeks. I've been going home every single weekend and I have yet mastered the skill of doing homework while riding on the tractor or while taking Jamey to the park. Hopefully, I'll get that figured out real soon.

I'm taking Spanish this semester and I'm not exactly good at foreign languages. We have tests every two weeks and a MASSIVE! amount of homework due in between. Needless to say, it's killing me. I actually have a Spanish test tomorrow and I need to learn about a million things before then.

Believe me, I could go on and on complaining about my schedule, but I know that I'll get the hang of it eventually. Hopefully, I learn how to spend some of my "weekend" working on homework and get back into the flow of classes. I love summer, but sometimes it's really hard to back into school mode.

I actually feel way less stressed after writing this out. Maybe I should make my blog a priority again?

It's That Time of Year Again

Goodbye, summer.

I'll miss you.

No more mowing, sunburns, cookouts, or days on the boat.

Instead, I'm focused on term papers, long books, and memorizing Spanish vocab.

Hopefully, I'll make it to next summer. Hopefully.

Always Remember

8 Years

American_Flag

I was in my seventh grade art class when I first heard about the September 11 attacks. Our teacher quickly ushered us into the library where we stood in silence as a plane flew into the second tower. I cried, realizing for the first time that it wasn't an accident.

I watched in disbelief as the towers fell- dumbfounded and confused. I honestly didn't think it was real. I was 1717 miles from the World Trade Centers, I'd never visited New York, and knew no one involved, yet I suddenly felt like I'd lost thousands of friends.

I think it was a turning point of my youth. I suddenly realized that the world can be a mean place and not everyone loves Americans. My innocence was shattered on that day.

My heart still aches for the families that lost loved ones on that day. I cannot imagine the pain and suffering they go through every single day. We will never forget you.

At the same time, I want to recognize the brave heroes that fight oversees so we don't have to. I thank God for the firemen and policemen who risk their lives every single day to help others. Individuals such as these make our country the amazing place it is.

God Bless America.

Cricket, Cricket!



Cricket
Colby and I have now a sweet, little baby. Isn't she just the cutest?

She's currently both scratching and biting my foot. Adorable, that's what I keep telling myself. We call her Cricket because she's a tiny gray kitten. She's actually over four months old, but was a born the runt of her little and is pretty much a midget.

Neither one of us is a cat person, but my mom suckered us into taking her. I really want a puppy, but I'll only be here four days a week.

She's adorable and playful, but MY GOODNESS that litter box is so disgusting. Yuck.

But Colby likes her. He would never admit it, but he actually slept with her the other day when I was at school. That boy is a sucker.
