Early Christmas

So I am still totally on a high from being chosen as a Saucy Blogger this week. Tiffany and Heather, you chicks are awesome and have given me such a sweet Christmas gift! Also, you have given me a huge head.

I have a bunch of people leaving me comment love and I even have a Follower now! Good Lord, I am going to be a mess next week when the traffic slows down and things return to normal. So don't leave me, ok? I promise you can all come to my birthday party if you be my friends and hang out regularly.

In the meantime, I figure I will try and post something each day. It's a habit I'd like to get into anyway, so the knowledge that more people than usual are venturing over to take a peek just gives me the extra kick I need to get going.

Since SK bought me a fancy new camera as an early Christmas gift, I'll share some photos. Photos don't chain me to my computer, but allow me to crank out a post with some substance (and also lets me play with Photoshop, which SK bought for me as well). I've been trying to get the hang of the different settings and have failed miserably at digging deep into my brain and yanking out some of that photography knowledge I collected while in high school and college. I took more than a few photography classes over those 8 years, but clearly, nothing stuck. I can however, remember how to develop a photo in a darkroom. I could probably still unload my film in a pitch black closet, too. I got skills.

I also have pretty flowers in my guest bathroom and streaks on my mirror because we usually have one or two friends stay the night each weekend and I am more concerned with keeping the toilet clean for their visits than I am with making sure the mirrors are toothpaste-free. Mental note: buy Windex.

This is Bella. You might have read about her HERE or HERE or maybe HERE. She's a little skittish, a lot hyper and a major drooler, but we love her and think she's pretty cool. She's also become a play-thing for our neice, Ryan, so that's good news. Bella's not a baby-biter.

Thanks, Bella.

One more day of work before Christmas. I am SO thrilled. This has been a long year and I am lookng forward to a few days off to decompress and not think about project timelines and invoicing and meetings. Be back tomorrow.

Peace out, fools.

I found your blog via SITS...congrats on being Saucy!

I think your Bella is gorgeous and so sweet! Seeing her pics make it harder to stick to not getting a doggy until our little guy turns five. Thanks for posting those gorgeous pics of her!

Hello, I'm visiting from SITS. Enjoy your week!
Hey, would you mind an unsolicited appearance comment?? It is constructive I promise! It's hard for me to read your blog--the font size is really small and the text color is difficult--maybe not enough contrast with the background. The red is easy to read. I hope you don't take offense. I would want to know if someone had trouble with my blog.
Sincerely, Ella

As your follower I promise to never leave you and check back everyday for new posts. :D

Anyway I would like to post a new comment everyday too. But sometimes I find that its hard to find stuff to blog about. Any suggestions?

Your Bella is adorable. She'd probably get along great with me and my husband's dog Charlie. He's a big goofball.

I hope your having a splendid day.
