steppin' out: colour ess-plosion.

whattup party people.

i hope you all had a terrific weekend because i sure did.  i had two photog-sessions & a whole lotta quality time with my two main men.  our weekend involved some around-the-house-DIY, some fro-yo, some of sam's tasty cooking & a whole lotta time in our sweats.  wins all around.

saturday morning we got the crazy idea to make a toybox/bench thing for the living room & after about half an hour of plans-drawing & designing, we were off to home depot for supplies.  our creation involves wainscoting on the sides, trim all around the edges, white paint on the outside & bright blue paint on the inside & chalkboard-painted-panels on the front.  it all sounds good in my head, we'll see how it pans out.

i did manage to get out of my sweats long enough to dress up for a few hours at church.  looking at this outfit in retrospect, i'm thinking i shoulda gone with my brown boots since the whole ensemble was loud enough without introducing the red ones, but whattyado?

ya live, ya learn.


{linkin' up with mandy at harper's happenings.  you should too!}


i'm also kinda excited because i just purchased another big-girl camera lens.  i took the plunge & got myself the 50mm f/1.4.  it won't come for a week or so, so i probably won't get any sleep between now & then.  you can expect a lot of loopy posts on account of the no sleep.  this girl is excited.

and last but not least, a giveaway winner!  congrats to:

  1. What a good way to spend the weekend.

    50mm f/1.4? I guess you're more into portrait photography. I am an aspiring photographer, hope you could teach me some tips some time hehehe. I own an entry level camera.

    Good luck on your new lens.

    Followed your link from Mingle Monday hop. Now a follower through GFC and twitter. Here's hoping you could follow back. thanks!

  5. LOVE that outfit. I haven't thought to wear leggings with my new boots (similar to yours) that I just bought. Thanks for the idea :) Love Parker's escape... what a stinker. Who would've thunk that it would be so hard to take outfit pictures w/a toddler, huh? Love it!

  6. okay. your blog is seriously my favorite. your posts always make me laugh. just the way you say things...even when you're not trying to be funny. i love it.

    also. your outfit is amazing. i wish i had some sense of style. sheesh! and i think the red boots look awesome. not too loud at all.

    the toy bench sounds sa-weet and i am excited to see it. dane's toy room is exploding, and we need something to hide all that crap in!

    k seriously this post made my monday. not like MADE my monday, but...made me laugh on a monday morning. which is kinda a big deal. k sorry to sound creeper-weirdo-obsessed-with-your-blog-girl. maybe a 43 year-long comment isn't helping that? gosh. who am i!

  20. Hi there, I am a new follower :))) Just love your blog!!! I was wondering what stroller you use?? We have our chico one from the beginning and I am hoping to start walking with Noah and want him to be extra comfy and actually enjoy the ride so I can get some exercise in!!! And how have you decorated P's bathroom! In the photos I see a bit of it and it looks cute! I cannot find anything I like to decorate Noah's bathroom!!!

  21. You are going to L.O.V.E. the 50 mil lens. It's almost impossible to take a bad photo! It's the only one I use out of my hubby's stash, and he's got some good stuff.
