What makes me smile? My family, my dog Daisy, fishing, 80's music, Packers football, a good cup of coffee...just to name a few!

Mission accomplished!

Our trip to Cabela's was a success! I now am the proud owner of some pretty 'sexy' boots! They even have some camouflage on them. He may get me to go hunting yet, but I don't think I could do it...Bambi is just too dang cute!
After our trek out to Roger's we headed back and I got my first tattoo done! It is in remembrance of my two beautiful grandmothers; Lorraine, who loved irises and Mable, who loved owls.
I may have some color added so you can spot the 'owl' a bit better , but I really think I like it the way it is!

Had fun out in Hudson with friends last night,  made some french toast and had a relaxing morning with my husband (didn't quite wake up in time to go fishing), took Daisy on a long walk and then got to see my folks for a little treat at Cup and Cone! Now to get the laundry done in time for a glass of wine and my guilty pleasure, "Keeping up with the Kardashians". I figure one half hour per week won't kill me, lol!!

Fish Tales

It's been extremely hot here in Minnesota for the last week, so my husband Chad and I have taken a little break from fishing.

It seems only natural that we start planning for our ice fishing adventures. Don't worry, I'm not wishing the summer away at all! I much prefer summer over winter, but ice fishing is one of the only things that gets me through the MN winters!

The boots I have been wearing for the last few years are neither very warm or waterproof, so finding me a good pair of boots is our mission this weekend. I think that by offering to buy me boots, he thinks he is somehow tricking me into going to his favorite store. Doesn't he realize that my wish list at Cabela's is probably just about as long or possibly longer that his!?

This is my first blog ever and to be honest with you, I'm not sure what it's going to be about. Most likely a lot of randomness...until I figure out which direction I want to take it in, or which direction it decides to take me in. Is it strange that I'm hearing Sarah Jessica Parker's voice in my head as I type?!
I always kept a diary during high school, but was used to that being just for me; to set goals, write poems and just express my feelings about everything from what socks I was wearing to what boy I went to what movie with and of course my Siskel and Ebert-like critique of said movie.
So what got me blogging? A friend on facebook started a new blog - - for people who want to share photos. It is a neat idea and isn't just for professionals, but anyone who wants to share the way they see the world through the images they capture with others. Anyone who knows me, knows I love to take pictures!! I'm am definitely not professional, but every once in a while, I get a pretty nice shot and am excited about the chance to share them! For the first challenge I will be submitting a self portrait.
Here goes something...
