Only if we understand can we care.

Only if we care will we help.

Only if we help shall they be saved.

silly fun - my doppelganger

Doppelgänger: (German "double walker") (pronounced [ˈdɔpəlˌɡɛŋɐ]) is a paranormal double of a living person, typically representing evil or misfortune. In modern vernacular, the word has come to refer to any double or look-alike of a person.

A Mommas Desires and Pacifiers I am gonna have a leetle fun today and I hope you will join me!  I may be a tad late to this par-tay, but that is nothing new!

I am using this sweet lil pic I snapped up while at Layla's Mini Olympics on Sunday.  {more on that later!} 

And while I have been told I resemble Rachel Bilson....{which I don't see!}

Oh, and I guy I work with calls me 'Spice Girl' because he thinks I resemble uber-skinny {obviously not because of the body} Victoria Beckham...{again, sooooo.not.seeing it!}

This quirky lil site seems to think I resemble Mary-Kate Olsen and/or Ashanti.  Oh, and Harrison Ford, too!  Thaaaaanks!  But we are NOT going there today. 

What say ye?!?  Who do you think I look like?

Who is YOUR doppelganger?

Quotography - Happiness

I am completely bending the rules today by picking two photos, but I just can't help it!!!!  And you will soon understand why.

A.  She makes my heart melt! 

And B.  I couldn't help but use this photo again today!!! 

We are welcoming Nicolasa back from a small hiatus and I am so happy she is gracing us with her presence once again.  I have missed her and I truly wish her all the happiness!  I would say that the world has to offer...but we all know happiness starts with ourselves.  Cheers!

Obstacles don’t have to stop you.

If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up.

Figure out how to climb it,

go through it,

or work around it.

from Picnik to Pic Monkey I go...

**tra la la la la la laaaah!!!!!!**

So those of us lame uber not professional photographers who were using Picnik for editing our nice pics to completely happening know Pic-NOT will be closing down in a short week or so....

So what now?  Where do we go?  Photoshop!?!  Oh hell to the no...or at least not yet for me!  So off to Pic Monkey I go!!!!

Here is my first tester.

While they do not have all of the bells and whistles Picnik is FREE!  So I can deal. 

This was the before. 

I just kinda minimized the junk on the bottom and obviously put a different finish to it! 

So, what will you be using instead of Pic-NOT!?!

our Easter...

...consisted of family, friends, eggs, dye, the Easter Bunny and such. 

Saturday we headed out to The Dominion to snap some pics with the uber cool Easter Bunny.  This was the first year Layla has not been completely freaked out by I'd say that was a winning day!

Of course, my niece, Paige, was the reason she went up to him in the first place...

Did you notice something about the above picture? 

If you said Paige's bangs, then you win the Golden Egg!!!  Say hello to 3/4" of bangs ala Paige, herself.

{nice tat, huh?}

Layla has some leftover face paint to go with that tat!

{we keep it classy!}

Moving dye!

Speaking of...Layla recently asked me to dye her hair!!!!!  WTH!?!  Um, hell to the no.  Back to the dyed eggs.

And Miss Paige's lovely eggs...they had a blast and every single one of their eggs HAD to be glittered!  But of course...

And then on Easter Sunday, Layla showed this face x hundred because of all the special treats the Easter Bunny, and mommy and daddy, and MiMi and Popo and NaNa and PaPa present to her!  This has, by far, been the mmost fun year of celebrations yet!!!  She was so into it....and thus, so were we!!!! 

Happy Easter baby girl....we love you so!

At the end of Easter Sunday, my friend, Juny - and all of the other loved ones that have passed on...gave me a beautiful display of sun rays to let me know they are still with us...smiling down on us always!  Thank you for that....I treasure those moments.

Peace be with you all.

Quotography - Water

My "phrase" for the year....really my life, that I have adopted is:


So I am working that into this weeks Quotography theme of water. 

Quotography at {My}Perspective

These are some of the pics I snapped when we were at the beach with Layla's cousins a few weeks back. 

This next one, of Jaliana jumping over the wave, is probably my favorite capture of the day.

And in lieu of showing you each individual sweet lil kiddo, I am opting for a family pic.  Because I could be here uploading pics!  I kid.  Kinda.  There are SEVEN of them, afterall. 

I die over this pic.  Nothing like a daddy and his baby girls...

Now I gotta get the PAIL outta here.  Ha!
