The House that Lars Built

I have a select Blog list... Some blogs I run across because I push: "Next Blog" on the top left of my BLOGGER blog...
I love to read this blog:

This lady makes me feel my creative energy! I love, love, love to read her blog. She makes the simpliest things 'CHIC'

Day 18: Eyes

These are my eyes. Gustavo was playing around with the MACBOOK (iPhoto) and made them look so pretty:) This was me at Halloween and two Kuwaiti girls from downstairs did my eyes up! I feel so blessed to live where we do. The Kuwaiti family has embraced us and I really like them.
When I was pregnant I prayed that my children would have green eyes... When they were born they looked green... But now they are telling me, "Mommy- My eyes are Hazel!" I have learned not to argue back because they are right... They have beautiful eyes though... I will post them. I wish mine were as big as theirs are!

Dj has a paint spot (as his Aunt Stephanne dubbed it) in one eye which I think is so darn CUTE! I love the shape of his eyes.

Mimsi- Who can say, "NO" to this face? I can- I am immune! LOL. She has some brown in the middle of her eyes. I love their eyes!!!

Day 14: Someone I Love

This is my Family. They are the people that I love. Having a son, a daughter and a wonderful man make going home everyday a treat.

I know that DJ is going to be taller than Gustavo very soon! LOL.
They are such a cute bunch! And they let me practice using my new camera with them!

They Love him... TOO MUCH!
Can you see it?
Xena felt like she was missing out!
Look... They are watching Xena... I think that she is -SPOILED-!!! LMAO. This camera is fast!

Day 13: Childhood Reminder

This is Take Care Bear... She is a CARE BEAR... These characters were my FAVE when I was a kid and growing up. I am glad that I have a daughter and that she loves stuffed animals! This is her first Care Bear. When she was a baby I used to buy her all kinds of Care Bear stuff and her crib was Care Bears as well. Mims is so Retro because she also loves My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake! Well- Now you know:)

Day 10: Animal(s)

These two are Thunder and Dora... Dubbed by the children:) They are always singing and making noise. I have tamed them up pretty good but I must admit that I hardly play with them as much as I used to.

 Aren't they so cute? They look like lil love birds.
 This was Xena when I was leaving to work. Doesn't she look like a Champion?
We also have fish. A house full of animals... We love it though!

Day 9: Sunset

So Sorry... But the Sun sets here in between the time that Gustavo is driving me to work and the Shuttle Bus is carrying me on to post. I looked for the Sun on the way to work, but it must have been behind me.
***I finally found the SUN!!!***

 The weather was not the best today and it was rather dusty out. Most days it is still somewhat light when Gustavo drops me off at the gate but dark as I walk into my building. My Beau said he would take the photo for me... Until he realized that he is also on the road at that time... With that being said... I will take the photo on Friday. (My off day) I will climb to the top of my building and get the shot... Or make sure that I am somewhere that the Sunset will be great. Promise! Until then... You have to wait for the photo.

---I got the photo… I just have to get the film developed because I used one of those water cameras… We were out on the jet-skis and I snapped a couple shots. I hope that some of them came out good!!!
***I have got the film developed... I will bring in the CD tomorrow!

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.
