Catch the Moment 365 Project – Week Twenty One

Once again, I’ve fallen off the #CatchtheMoment365 wagon. I don’t know why I’ve had so much trouble getting my real camera out and taking pictures daily. I do have picture on my phone though – which I suppose are better than nothing! So here is week 21’s photos!

Day 143 | May 23, 2014

Kyle was out late Friday night so I told Lennox we could have a little slumber party in my bed. It lasted until about 10:15 and she just wouldn’t go to sleep – so off to bed she went. Either way, she had fun staying up late with Mommy!

Day 144 | May 24, 2014

Lennox was Daddy’s little snuggle bug today. She sometimes gives him the cold shoulder, so it’s nice when she decides to actually snuggle!

Day 145 | May 25, 2014

Kyle was at the Colonial Golf Tournament today so Lennox and I did some birthday party shopping, big girl bed shopping and then got some lunch before heading back home.

Day 146 | May 26, 2014

Lennox really wanted to see The Amazing Spiderman 2! She enjoyed the movie – minus the love story party – she wished Spiderman and Electro were in it the WHOLE time!

Day 147 | May 27, 2014

A sure sign that you have a girl – when it’s bath time and all you can see is a naked Barbie doll!

Today was the Last Day of the normal school year. Lennox starts summer school on Monday but she looks so big here. She has changed a lot this year!

Catch the Moment 365 – Week Seventeen

This week consisted of iPhone photos only. I somehow didn’t pick up my dSLR all week – I’ve been really busy at work this week and Lennox has been in a mood most of the evenings, so it just hasn’t worked out! Either way, I got some pictures and joining in for week SEVENTEEN of the Catch the Moment 365 project.

Here is week 17!

Day 115 | April 25, 2014

TGIF! Today was a beautiful day so we spent some time outside with our neighborhood friends! Notice how Lennox is wearing sweatpants, a tutu and short sleeve shirt – it was about 80 degrees outside too! She dressed herself.

Day 116 | April 26, 2014

Before heading off to EdgeFest and Lennox to her Aunt & Uncles house for the day – we went to our Saturday tradition of Cracker Barrel. Today we let Lennox pick out a new stuffed toy to bring with her for the day. She picked out this big eyed unicorn, named Magic. It’s her new best buddy!
Also – this picture – I didn’t plan on taking it but she stopped and asked me to take a picture!

Oops! Photo is missing!

Day 118 | April 28, 2014

Tonight we spent a little extra time loving on our pup Daisy Mae. Her cousin, Maxwell, went to doggy heaven today. So very sad to hear the news – he was the best boy pup around and I will miss his crazy self, fluffy hair and cuddles. RIP Maxwell.

Day 119 | April 29, 2014

We had to stop at Target after school today. Lennox would NOT get off the outdoor furniture and kept loudly asking for me to take pictures of her.. she is such a nut and I think everyone there thought I was nutty too!
Day 119 | April 29, 2014

Day 120 | April 30, 2014

Today is school picture day! Although Lennox wears a uniform to school each day, only class picture day is when you have to wear a uniform on picture days. This one was individual pictures so it was a free dress day – so of course we picked out a cute outfit for her to wear – She is stylin’ in her Lily Pulitzer dress – usually in the $60 price range – I got it at Just Between Friends Fort Worth for $4!
Day 120 | April 30, 2014

Day 121 | May 1, 2014

Happy May! Today was my co-workers birthday (which she didn’t tell us about – but I saw it on FB). So we put together a little surprise for her while she stepped away from her desk! I think she really enjoyed her Martha Stewart cake, flowers and chocolate truffles!
Day 121 | May 1, 2014I really am trying to get better at this again, I don’t know what my deal is! I just have to get more organized and re-motivated! I’m going to #SoFabCon14 next week – maybe that will motivate me! Anyway, check out all the other bloggers joining in by heading over to Sarah’s blog at Nurse Loves Farmer and don’t forget to keep snappin’!

How to Watermark using Photoshop

It is VERY important to watermark you images when you have a blog or putting them in a public forum. There are some crazy people out there that will steal your photos! There are many ways to watermark your photos, including using PicMonkey or Photoshop Elements. Personally, I like to use an action in Photoshop.

I put together a post for Steph over at A Grande Life on how to do this step by step! Click the image below to see just how to do it yourself – it’s very simple!
