{cinnamon & spice} at the movies

*twilight movie date*
Last Friday I met Stephanie at the movies to go see Breaking Dawn.  She was kind enough to take some photos of the warm spice colors I was wearing.....

*poncho* *hanging out before the movie*
I had just bought the jeans and poncho, and was excited to get a chance to wear them out. Ryan calls the ensemble my *Luke Skywalker on Tatooine* outfit : )  Stephanie showed up wearing the cutest knee high socks with her heels, jeans, a tee shirt and comfy sweater.  We hung out and walked around while waiting till it was time to head into the theater.....

*keeping warm* *comfy cozy*
In the end, Steph didn't make it into the theater due to the stomach flu, but we agreed to still see it now I have another movie date with this pretty lady. Needless to say I went into the movie worried about her, and left it relieved she arrived home OK, my head swimming with happy thoughts from what I had just seen on the big screen.  (photos of me by Stephanie, photoshop actions by me)  <3 Carrie

{week in the life} tuesday

{tuesday} snack
I decided to get my butt in gear with editing more of my Week In The Life photos before Thanksgiving arrives, so here's my Tuesday, October 18th : )

One of my favorite Halloween snacks is candy corn mixed with honey roasted peanuts! And I thought that today would be the perfect day to capture some of the Halloween ambiance that adds a bit of happy to my days at home. At one point I decided to relax and watch a movie. Creature From The Black Lagoon is one of my favorite black and white monster series!!!  I love all three movies!

{tuesday} fun
I had just planted my mums the day before and took some photos of their cheerful color.....

Not a whole lot happened today, but I think I took more photos this day than any other during the week. I also have some really great notes that I jotted down about my my favorite memory was talking music with Ryan, and I noticed how much the puppies love to play together when Ryan is hanging out with them on the floor, and that Ryan laughed from enjoying the time he shared playing X-box Live with his cousin who lives in stuff like that.  I am very thankful for this chance to remember such wonderful times.  <3 Carrie

coffee & crafts

*all done*
Today I met up with my sweet friend named April. As a belated birthday present, I designed a mini scrapbook class for us to play with at a local coffee shop. In the photo above you can see our finished product.....a December Daily that's only 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". Each day is a two page spread with a journal card on one side to write out a favorite moment or story of the day, with the other side covered with pretty Christmas paper, the day of the month and an occasional embellishment. And guess what?!?  April also surprised me with this fun Christmas project.....What a fun day <3 Carrie

Your Appointment with Friday

This week has flown by for me.....up to today when I tried to slown down and soak up every bit of wonderful rain from a storm that is passing over San Diego.  It was our first rainfall of the season, and I loved it!

For this week's prompt, I decided to re-do another Fall prompt from last year:

Autumn Hues

{autumn} hues #1
I've known I wanted this to be this week's prompt for a while, but didn't decide what to photograph for it until today.  As soon as I woke up to the sound of rain, I knew that the sweet raindrops daintly perched atop my mums and pumpkins would add the perfect touch for taking my colorful photos.....

Normally I would not choose such a varied combination of colors in crysanthemum or for my Autumn Hues, but for some reason this year I am really enjoying.  To me it seems very happy : )  What are your favorite Autumn Hues this year?

Love, Carrie
