Capturing Things I Love

Today I’m getting back into the swing of things by linking up to You Capture over at I Should Be Folding Laundry. This week’s theme is  Things You Love. That’s super easy! So jump on over to check out the weekly challenge. She always posts the next week’s challenge so you can start getting your pictures this week.

This pictures shows two things that I love – my honey, Ron, and my FSU Seminoles!!!

With Mamaw and Papaw (my parents)

And this one also has two of my faves – my kids and my parents!

This is my Mamaw with what she loved, flowers! I’m pretty sure my Mamaw hung the moon and lit the sun every morning.

My gorgeous children having fun during their senior pictures! I love all of their senior pictures and could fill up pages and pages and pages of this blog full of them. But these shots are just in my top 3 favorites.

And last but not least I love this little Shih-Tzu named Faith! She puts a smile on our faces every day.

That’s just a quick collection of things I love. Next week’s theme for You Capture is Shapes. That will be fun! I’ll start snapping pictures today!


Empty Nest Bucket List – Check

This past weekend I got to do something I’ve been wanting to do for about 23 years. I didn’t even know I wanted to do this until my husband moved me to Tallahassee Florida, his hometown, in 1989. I discovered a little something called COLLEGE FOOTBALL and fell in love when the Florida State University Seminole Football team bug bit me. We lived in Tallahassee for a LONG time. I constantly cheered on my NOLES through the glorious 90s, a GREAT decade of Seminole football. We lived on campus at one time one block away from the football stadium. One job I had was in the drive thru of a bank facing the football stadium. So I stared at it every single day. Another job I had was one road over from Stadium Dr. I could hear the marching band practice every day. Yet not one time did I ever step foot into Doak Campbell Stadium – until this past Saturday – 15 years after moving away from Tallahassee. It was boiling hot but I had the time of my life. It was definitely an opportunity to check off an item on my bucket list.

For those of you that have been reading here regularly you may have noticed that this is our first trip of our Empty Nest Adventures. It was a great start. I came home floating on a cloud. I’m definitely gonna like this Empty Nest thing. Most definitely!! No doubt about it!

It’ll take a while before that smile comes off my face! That is a happy Seminole!!

Ghost Of Halloweens Past

As it is Halloween weekend I thought it only fitting to share a few entries about the Halloween fun of the past.  My kids are teenagers and for all intents and purposes gone on holidays.  As everyone knows it is more fun to be with, dress up with and trick or treat with your friends.  And it is extremely lame (their word, not mine) to be in the general vicinity of any member of your parental unit.   Continue reading
