Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Here's mine...

* I did not go out with one of my best friends (who we recently found out is also my long lost 3rd or 4th cousin! lol) for Valentine's Dinner. How romantic, right? Not! Until I find 'Mr. Right' I am not going to allow V-day to be depressing!

* I certainly have not gone almost two weeks without going to Starbucks (I put myself in my own Starbucks rehab regimen). I still get the frapps from the grocery store, but I figured, it'll be healthier if I try to stop going to Starbucks so often and it'll also save me from spending some of my well earned money!

* I did not stare at people's photos of Route 66 on Flickr for nearly 3 hours the other day! That would be ridiculous! Ha!

* I have not missed 3 weeks of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" and am certainly not addicted to "I Survived" instead(same time slot).

* And last but not least... I am by no means super excited about my new camera that came today!! Just waiting on my "nifty-fifty" lens to get here :)

It was too dark by the time I got home so I had to find random things to photograph around the house. And of course, used Shelby as my test model again. That poor dog LOL I swear, she only does it for the treats she gets for sitting pretty and behaving like such a good girl in front of the camera. Other than that I think she'd rather be off chasing her tennis ball.

Testing, testing 1.....2....3

Randomness around the house....

That's all for now. Hopefully we'll continue to have nice weather the rest of this week so I can get some outdoor shots with the new camera!

Cute As a Button

I did my first "official" baby photoshoot this weekend and was blessed to do this shoot with a family member's baby, who just happens to be the happiest most cooperative little boy ever! Becuase I am still saving up for the uber expensive lighting, backdrops, props, ect ect ect for a home studio I improvised here with natural light coming through an ajacent window, a large white piece of fabric and some relatively inexpensive props that I either bought or had laying around the house.

A Girl After My Own Heart...

How excited was I went I walked into work the other day to see this cute little plush Starbucks cup dog toy?!! (Though on the toy the label says "Starbarks", get it? hehe). As some of you may already know, I have a love, okay so it borders on obsession, with Starbucks - especially their Caramel Macchiato, Caramel Latte and Caramel Frapp (okay, so maybe its the carmel that I really love?) Anyway, when I saw this toy I just knew I had to get it for Shelby, even if she refused to play with it - much like she has done with the giant tennis ball I bought for her for Christmas.

She was not too happy with me when I first tried to photograph her with her new toy.

But once she realized it was a toy it turns out, not only did she not refuse to play with it, she didn't want to give it up. I had to eventually take it away from her because it has a squeaker type thing inside that makes a barking noise which I know she'll probably eat if she's left unattended with the toy. She had to much fun with it, throwing it up in the air and chasing it all over the living room!
