Sometimes I Think I'm a Better Photographer With My iPhone Than With My DSLR

All of the above photos were taken by me on my iPhone. Now go check out photographer, Lisa Wiseman's "polaroids" series - taken with her iPhone.

Do you find yourself using your camera phone for everything too?

Christmas Card Time!!!!!

I've been planning the family Christmas card for months. I had been planning to do a family photo shoot for the card but I didn't have time so I settled on snapshots from the past year. I think it turned out okay though, don't you?
Does your family do holiday cards?

The Hostess Gift

I am of the school of thought that one should never arrive at a party, dinner or cocktail, empty handed. Usually this means I run to the store en route and pick up a bottle of good, yet moderately priced wine to offer the hostess. This year I think I should class it up a bit. Maybe in addition to that good, yet moderately priced wine, I could toss in some whimsical wine glass charms. These Holly Go Lightly charms caught my eye!

Also, I am a sucker for stationary. Who wouldn't love to receive these beautiful notecards?

Holiday Party Time

Shabby Apple

I know, I know. We haven't eaten Thanksgiving dinner and here I am talking about holiday parties. But really, those parties sneak up on you and before you know it you need to find a babysitter, a new dress, and a fabulous hostess gift! And if you're hosting, well, that will be a whole other post!

First things first, let's talk about the dress. I am all for a LBD, and this new one from Shabby Apple is what I'm hoping to wear to our annual holiday fete. I just love the classic silhouette.

Of course, I am digging the disco vibe of this little number from Jcrew.


What type of dress are you thinking of the party season?

And I'm Off!

I'll be taking the week off from blogging to attend the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk for the Cure. I've been training and raising monies for 9 months for this event and I'm really excited. The goal is to walk 60 miles in 3 days and raise $2300. I've raised the money, now let's see if I can walk the miles! I chose to do this after a friend from high school lost her battle with breast cancer. I guess this was my way of processing the grief. Have any of you ever participated in an event like this? Post a comment and tell me your experience!
