New dress

Tell me this isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen. 
It's a pillow case dress I found on etsy. This was the last one she had in stock, and it just happened to be the right size. Lucky me!

Sometimes I really, really love having a little girl.


And, a rare photo of me (taken by my husband). I got my hair done! Yay! This is probably the last time we'll see it worn down until October.

Mortal Muses Life in B&W: best friends by 2 peas and a blueberry

Mortal Muses Life in B&W: best friends by 2 peas and a blueberry: "daily selection by mosey"

My photo featured on Mortal Muses. I love it when they select an image of mine. It is such an honor, and means a lot to me.

I think one thing I need to work on (inspired by the muses) is my writing. I very rarely post descriptions of photos. I need to start trying to do that.

Tuesday again.

I took several photos I liked this week. But here is one I took just today for Sweet Shot Tuesday. We're working on learning to use scissors. She definitely doesn't have it mastered yet but we'll keep trying!

Happy Tuesday!

Got a new bubble blower today and it's a big hit because E can blow bubbles by herself (or as she says "My turn!").

 Bubble and baby bokeh!

So if you need us, you'll probably find us blowing bubbles in the backyard. If we don't melt. Which we may.

My purple sun hat

Still really hot. The heat index has been over 118 for most of the week. We went outside to take some photos in this cute sun hat.

I got some cute ones.

This one is my favorite, I think:

Of course, we have a love/hate relationship with hats. 

 We don't always want to wear them, and when we do, they sometimes get worn like this:

It is, of course, ridiculously hot. You can see the humidity in the air. I long for winter, or even fall. But, at least there are pretty sundresses to be worn now. So there's that.

Another sunflower for Sweet Shot Tuesday

Another of the sunflower for Sweet Shot Tuesday. I really enjoyed photographing these this week, and took several  macro photos. I don't have a macro lens (yet) because they are pretty expensive. Hopefully one of these days! For now I use macro filters and I had an epiphany with those this week. I love macro photography!
Thanks for swinging by! Happy Tuesday :)

I love them! Bought these at Trader Joes this morning and put them in my kitchen. Pretty!

I almost forgot..

..about Sweet Shot Tuesday today. We are thrown off on our days I think, due to Eric's weird schedule this week. Anyway. I took several photos I liked this week. This one was taken at the Botanical Gardens on Sunday. They have a butterfly exhibit there but E was very afraid of the butterflies for some reason. She kept saying "I don't want the butterfly to bite my leg". Daddy promised to protect her from the butterflies, and anything else that happened along.

I Heart Faces Challenge--Red, white and blue

And for the I heart Faces Challenge.. 
 This is a photo I took last year on the 4th, but it is still one of my favorite Fourth of July photos!

Sweet Shot Tuesday

Here is one of my favorite photos from this week for Sweet Shot Tuesday. I am not sure why this photo appeals to me so much. I took it yesterday in Colonial Williamsburg, where we spent the fourth of July. What a neat place to spend Independence day! It was very hot though. Here is a frayed  area of the rope they were using to block off a field.
Happy Tuesday!
