Style for Any Age

Ok, these CREWCUTS clothes by J Crew are too cute! However, it's sad when I see 5 year olds that are dressed better than me....

Movie Review

Tonight I went to see "Love Happens." It is the epitome of the word (s) chick-flick, a sappy, predictable love story. I am a fan Jennifer Aniston, so it was worth paying the $7 (twilight price) but over all I seen much better. The hubby was not too into it either, the constant movement and comments were the proof!
On a more positive note, at least I wasn't sitting in the theater for Shawn's movie choice!

Top 6 of my favorite Movies that have (somewhat) recently come out:

1) Time Travelers Wife
2) Marley and Me
3) 17 Again
4) The Proposal
5) Bride Wars
6) Confessions of a Shopaholic

Practice Makes Perfect

OK, well in my case not perfect but a lot better!

I am in week 2 of my photography class, it is both frustrating and challenging! Yet, I am loving it! It reminds me of the online classes I took in college, only the subject matter is interesting and fun (plus no tests). Since I am coming from a place of little to NO technical photography knowledge it is a bit of a bumpy learning experience, but again, a FUN one!

While I was reading over the new material for this week and listening to the video of the OH SO knowledgeable instructor a thought came to mind. The only way I am going to learn this stuff and remember it is to practice, practice, and keep practicing! Isn't that so true for most things in life we want to learn and be good at? So if you are a friend or family member I apologize in advance for the never-ending picture taking!

Conflicting Styles

I recently read an article about finding your own personal style. It seems like most people I know have a very defined style. I feel very strongly that I do not! I am constantly looking at design blogs, decorating tv shows and fashion magazines. I love all kinds of decor, hair styles, clothing styles, music, movies, etc. If I had to pick my own personal style I couldn't, I have felt bad about this most of my life, chalking it up to not really knowing who I am. Well, I am done feeling bad about this! I am, from now on, going to embrace my multi-style personality!

For example....

I look like this one day

And this the next (my new look)

I love this

But, I also Love the Pottery Barn look

I love the J Crew Look

I also Love the Sophisticated look of Burberry

I love most music from Josh Groban to Built to Spill to Dixie Chicks.

I love, LOVE, love movies from Wall-E to My Fair Lady to Top Gun.


As you can see, my personal style is to not have one apparently!

Back to class I go!

Awhile back I mentioned that I talked Shawn into buying me a SLR camera. I have yet to take FULL advantage of the great camera that it is, because well, I don't know how... I love to take pictures and have always wanted to learn more about photography so I finally signed up for an online photography class. I have been waiting on this class to open up since I bought the camera, it fills fast so that must mean it's good right?!

I have actually followed Candice's blog for quite awhile because I know her sister, Stephanie. Both have really great blogs, a talented family for sure!

Maybe this will scratch my back to school itch....
