"A Spoon Full of Sugar Make You Better Real Quick"

So ever since my "Wee Bit of Me" post the song "Stuck on You" by Sugarland has been stuck in my head so I thought using a line from it as a title would help it leave my head and get stuck in yours :) Is it working???
Anywho, pretty much it's 2 AM and I'm tired but my hubby and bro-in-law are up playing some kinda basketball game on PS3 so I'm getting my Friday link up post together! Oh and I entered Chelsey's Valentine's Day Challenge yesterday and if you haven't seen my entry check it out here and if I place in the top 20 I hope I will have your vote! There are some awesome prizes!!

LEM; Trees
cedar tree
This was a snow covered cedar tree we passed on our snow walk about a week and a half ago! I love the detail of it and how "full" the photo is if that makes sense. Kind've a different perspective of a tree.


Foto Friday; SOOC
SOOC shot
So I pretty much never get by without doing some kind of edit to my photos no matter how simple..such as contrast/curves/level..color play..anything like that. This was a top fav as I went through my SOOC photos from another nature walk we took after the snow that was in the previous picture melted off!

more bathtub pics!
Please don't hate me for more bathtub pics. I've probably bored you to tears with them! Every week since I started my 365 project I've had at LEAST one photo of Dillon in the tub per week. That's where I go on days I lack motivation...in the bathroom with my camera while he bathes to capture my POTD! As far as processing I just did some basic adjustments to brightness, contrast and exposure and then I ran a vintage action (and I'm so sorry I can' remember which!) but I turned off a lot of layers and turned down the rest until I came out with this!

Skywatch Friday
the sunset on feb 1st!
Also along with my weekly tub picture I usually have a sunset to throw in there too..and it's always of the same direction and the same two trees..(*duh self, the sun sets in the same place from your porch everyday!*) Can you tell I'm tired???

Best Shot
Mister Man
Gotta share this photo of "Mister Man" as he has come to be called. He's like a mini lion with all that super thick long fur! He loves his outside time but comes in too! I love his eyes!

Simplicity; Vintage
pine tree!
I know this seems a little "out there" but does something about this photo seem "vintage-y" to you?? I don't know if it's the edit I used or the fact that it was taken at my Mom in Law's and her husband is a collector of vintage items so it just gives that vibe or what? Either way I felt like it somehow conveyed 'vintage' so there it is!


So that's it, my Friday link ups! I wanna take a moment out like I do every once in a while and thank you all again for your support, encouragement and kind words that I look forward to reading everyday! You guys are my source of strength and my want to go out and capture something new and different everyday! I visit as many blogs as I can as you all are so talented and such an inspiration! Your words always touch my heart! I promise! I hope you guys have the greatest weekend EVA!

I liked the long hair in the cat's ears. That is cute. Reminds me of John L. Lewis' eyebrows.

I LOVE that nature walk SOOC shot. We've got a gazillion inches of snow outside our front door but I can almost feel that soft moss under my feet. Great capture!

Shannon said...

Such gorgeous pictures. I never get tired of cute bathtub or sunset pictures. I love how you said you hope everyone has the longest weekend eva. I need one, too. :)

Karli said...

These are wonderful...all of them! Your SOOC is really fantastic - I'm impressed! I don't see that grey haze that a lot of SOOC shots have. And hey, I LOVE a good bathtub shot! What's not to love...white background, easy to bounce flash, they're CONTAINED (the best part) - LOL! A winning combination!

You're such a sweetie with your kind words on my blog. You just put a huge smile on my face. I've probably said that a hundred times already...but you really do! Have a wonderful weekend, and keep up the great work with the pics - they're very very good. :-)

don't worry about too many bathtub pics, at least it means your bathe your son at least once a week. ; )

Lots of wonderful images there, but the one of your cat is beautiful! He looks a little like my kitty, which might influence my opinion:)
