I ♥ Faces - "Let's Hear it for the Boys!"

I was soooo excited to have won 3rd place in last week's Sepia Tone challenge! What an honor! This week the theme is "Let's Hear it for the Boys" in honor of Father's Day. All pictures must have boys only.

Here is my children's entry. This is my friend's nephew Grayson. My first I ♥ Faces entry ever had Grayson in it too!
And here is my adult entry. This is my friend Collin. He is an awesome musician and this picture was taken at one of his many gigs.

I ♥ Faces - Sepia Tone

Sepia Toned-Adult Category

I have been so excited about this week's contest at I ♥ Faces! I had the perfect picture in mind for the Adult Category. This picture features one of my favorite people in the world-my grandpa, who I call "Paw." Paw fought in WWII where he was shot in the leg and became a prisoner of war. He is my only living grandparent now and is such a great person. What makes this picture so special is that it was taken on Memorial Day of 2009...a day to honor our country's heroes!

Sepia Toned-Kids Category

Here is my entry for the kids category this week. These cute kids belong to one of the 2nd grade teachers on my team at school. Sydney and Travis are so much fun! I thought this picture with Travis peeking over the fence turned out pretty cute and looked nice in the sepia toned tint.

Check out the other great entries at I ♥ Faces!

Show Us Where You Live Friday-Office Edition

This week's room for "Show Us Where You Live Friday" at Kelly's Korner is offices. Our office is the ONE room that my husband Kyle decorated! He had some say in the rest of the house, but the office was all him. He is a sports FANATIC, so all of his office has a baseball/football/Texas Longhorn theme. He graduated from UT and is proud of all of his longhorn memorabilia!

Here is the view of the office from the doorway.

We LOVE our office. The desk and all of the shelving was already built in when we moved to our house, and Kyle has so many books and DVD's that it was easy for him to fill the shelves.

This is the view from the windows at the front of the room. The map above the TV was a Christmas gift to Kyle last year. It was one of my favorite gifts I have ever given him.

Here is a close-up of the map. It is mounted and framed on foam board and came with the little pins to push into the places you have been. Kyle loves to travel and has been so many places. He has visited lots of places in the U.S. as well as some of Europe. I ordered the map from Exposures in case anyone wants to know!

This wall is dedicated to Kyle's alma-mater and includes his degrees, a panoramic picture of UT's football stadium, and a framed tribute to the 2006 Rose Bowl when Texas beat USC. Kyle was able to go to the game and saved his ticket and some pictures from the game, as well as the Sports Illustrated cover featuring his favorite player Vince Young.
In all of Kyle's travels he has been able to visit lots of Major League Ballparks. He has collected an 8 X 10 photo of all the ballparks he's ever been to. He will get to add 2 more after our trip to NYC this summer! Soon we will run out of room!

And that's it! Head on over to Kelly's Korner and check out all of the other offices!

I ♥ Faces-Week 21


I was so happy when I saw that ♥ Faces was having a pets category this week! This is my cute dog Scout. She is a Jack Russell Terrier, so it is rare that she is just laying around looking sweet! I took this picture from the floor and actually didn't mean to position the camera with her in the corner that way. I really like how the crop turned out, though!


This is a picture that I took long before I learned how to use my camera on Manual. It has that harsh flash look, but I still think it is precious! There is nothing cuter than a baby's first birthday cake bites!
