First time for everything...

Happy Thursday!!! It is indeed a happy Thursday for me. I'm off work today and Friday. Four day weekends ROCK!! Because I'm off, I decided to get a few outfits together for the old blog here. As I was decided what to put together, I noticed that the hubby's camera has a screw input on the bottom. I then remembered that hubby has a tripod from his college years. DING! I rambled through the closet and there it was... the tripod. It was a perfect fit, and that's all she wrote. I was so anxious to get outside and snap a few shots.

Enter the weirdness of taking your own pics. My excitement quickly fizzled as people started to walk/drive by and stare. I didn't have any direction (which usually comes from my daughter), so I was left to my own devices. Taking a pic, then running to the camera to see if everything worked out is crazy to say the least. I can say that it got better as a figured out where to stand, how to move, and how to make sure I stayed within the frame. It will take some getting used to, but I think it's here to stay for me.

Do you have any tips that I can use for tripod picture taking?? Please share!

On to the OOTD... There are two things that I want to talk about in this outfit. The necklace, and the shoes!

I won the necklace in a giveaway on Ashley's blog, A Sassy Woman. I was so excited because I think it's a really cute. It's called "Jessica", from Thierry Accessories. The colors are what caught my eye. Very vibrant and fun!!

The shoes, I found on Urbanog.com. They are super cute, and I love them to death! I'm sure you will be seeing plenty of these babies in future posts. The price was reasonable, and they are well made. I also didn't expect them to be as comfortable as they are. Love them!!

Until next time...



I was literally falling over because I was laughing at myself so hard. 

Walking the runway!! lol!
