Day 5: Books

So these are the books that are currently in our room. 
1. The Art of Seduction - Robert Greene
2. The Miseducation of the Negro - Carter Godwin Woodson
3. Code of Conduct (ITT Exelis)
4. The Motorcycle Diaries - Ernesto Che Guevara
5. Sir Fartsalot Hunts the Booger - Kevin Bolger
6. My Life - Bill Clinton
7. The Autobiography of Malcolm X
8. The Color Purple - Alice Walker
9. The Audacity of Hope - Barack Obama

I did not list the 30+ some kids' books that are living in the kids' rooms. I am sure that the books we have mean something about us. I would like to note they are mostly Gustavo's books but are some really good reads. He is the intellectual type;) I am sure that we will own the Encyclopedia Britannica collection, they will be a great addition to our home. I am the Google Queen but I will show the kids how to use the books:)

Day 3: Hands


These are my Hands... With these hands... I love, I touch, I caress, I console, I pray, I hold, I teach and I am able to work. My hands have allowed me to be a great mother. To wipe Domiyana's face when she is upset and rub DJ's hair when we are watching a movie. My hands have allowed me to be an attentive partner to Gustavo.
***NOTE: These are my real nails and as a thrifty way to save money, I paint them myself.***
-Also... My hands are enlarged due to the effects of the photo! LOL

Day 2: Fav Shoes

Contrary to popular belief... I am a very down to Earth and simple. When people pre-judge me, they automatically assume that I am stuck up, that I have money or that I think that I am "TOO GOOD". Being that I am older, I do not care what people think or say... But I have never forgot where I have came from. Now with that being said- My FAVORITE SHOES... Are none at all or flip flops:) Little cheap ones.
I love designer shoes as well- But being that I am trying to build a future, having expensive shoes that hurt my feet are no longer a number one priority. These are mine and Mim's toes:)

Day 1: Self Portrait

This is me... This is me with NO HAIR done, NO MAKE-Up on. This is ME on a NORMAL day. Being that I am on vacation- I really have not blogged:) We are about to leave to the AP now and I will be posting a lot once we get back. Here is DAY 1... Self Portrait.

Great Idea

So I "Googled" 30 day photo Challenge. I then clicked "images"... I stumbled across a cute little blog with a grand list. (PINK ARGYLE) But what the heck is "Bokeh"? ANSWER: the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image.


This is my List:)

She was missing number 21... So I just made the last one. I am not sure if I have to do it in order or not. As long as I check them all off- I think it is all good. I am trying to start taking more photos and blogging more. We only live once.
