I Figured It out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK... so I apologize for my lack of outfit posts every day butttttt... here was my dilemma. All of these cutesy fashion bloggers get these pics in all these fun locations. Problems for me?? It has to be a self-portrait because there's nobody to take the picture.... and the other problem is that I (and this might be an excuse but) don't feel like there is enough time in the day to go find a location before or after work to take my picture. Therein lies the problem. However........ I think I have discovered a solution! Despite the fact that it is not the most visually appealing space, I have figured out how to take pictures without adding extra time to my day (because that's just
not possible). :)

These pictures are in the yoga studio that is right next to my office. It's got flavor and pizzazz (a.k.a. lavender wooden walls)... and my clients' banners all over the floor. There used to be a yoga studio... and now it is our storage "closet" because they moved out. There are nice little windows that I can use to take these lil' self-portraits. And, on the wall behind me it says, "Make Love Not War". That may not be my philosophy... but it sure adds at least a little something to the photo? Perhaps....

Also, if any experienced bloggers read this site.... I NEED YOUR HELP! I want my site to be frickin' sweet like ya'lls site. So, alot of you have sweet sweet headers that are at the top of your blogs. How do I create/use/make shift one of those and have it on my site. Currently, my site is blah....... and I want it to be...... dare I say....... Fabulous? Thanks for your help lovely ladies!

And because I'm feeling sappy......

"So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? If it's with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out."

I have the same problem with trying to just find the time to take the pictures... don't even talk to me about actually find creative places to take them. To change it up a little bit, I try and find different spots in my yard that are unique... that way it looks like I have gone someplace, but I really haven't. LOL Another thing I do is if I am out with friends... I make them stop and take my picture some place fun.

I love this photo of you and the place you took it is perfect... so cute! OOh and I LOVE your boots!

okay, i don't really like my page at all (in fact, i'm trying myself to find out how to organize it, etc) but i do know how to make headers.
go to your dashboard. when you sign in to blog, it will be a link at the top right of yoru screen.
from there you have options of what to do, you'll wnat to click "layout."
from there you can design your page layout.
where it says "header" you can upload something or just write something in yourself. i uploaded the photo college i made.
does that make sense?
also, CAN'T wait to see your 5 list :)
