20 Pictures...That's what I owe to my blog...It's been a challenge I admit...Ok, fine I've been watching American Idol...OKAY!!! I haven't watched it for years and got hooked again...Funny how the TV can distract you from other things...Hence, my blog!  Well it's over now and my guy won...Yay! I realized how much TV I DIDN'T watch in the past...I'm kind of hooked on a few shows, but not really liking the time by the television...So I really need to try to take my time and spread it out...

With that, we have also been traveling...This month we've been busy having fun...As you know we went to Brianhead, Utah in the beginning of the month and stayed in my BFF's cabin (KIM)...Then, 2 weeks later my BFF (RACHEL) invited our family to her timeshare in Newport Beach, CA!! Awesome, awesome, awesome is what I have to say about that...Truly a blessing from above...And free to stay there....All the pictures I've posted are from that vacation...I LOVE the beach!

Such sweet kids!!

 Love, love, love the colors in that top flower....
Looks like a peacock doesn't it?

And last, but not least, more of The Vesely Family...Can't see my little lady in that family photo, but I promise she is there...
Love that picture of Bella holding the sheet (my idea...ha!) 
My most favorite picture is, those baby toes...They belong to Christian (a.k.a. CZ-upper right corner) and they have a name...
His momma calls them "angry toes" because they look all twisted and angry...
That's all folks!!

P52 Week 19-Still Life

I've actually posted this picture before on my blog....I'm using it again because of, well, time crunch...Also, because this was the first thing I thought of when I saw the challenge....A sweet friend gave this to me right as my husband and I started to foster...She told me it represents the "new life"  the LORD will be bringing us one day...I just loved it and I'm not into trinkets, but this one is a keeper...

Hey, yo, you ova dare, you wanna a meatballa sandwicha, eh?

Here we are at the San Gennero Feast...I was so in my element...The stench of New York Italians all over me...I loved it...My accent came out every time I talked to someone...I use to go to this feast when I lived in New York all the time...It was located in Little Italy in Manhattan....Everything Italian...I was surprised years ago when I heard they come to Vegas twice a year....It really gets expensive, like everything else, right?  We had a great family day...Although it was HOT, it really was a good time...I HAD to pick up an "Italia" t-shirt, have a New York pizza AND cannoli...I wanted more, but you know I'm dieting...AGAIN....You probably can't see the photo with the sign that read Psalm 34:8...It was nice to see GOD'S Word in the midst of sin city...Anyway, I thought you would like to see how New York Italians have a good time...Ciao!!

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him....Psalm 34:8

P52 Week 18-Fiesta or Siesta (366-119)

Well, this WAS suppose to be a Fiesta and a Siesta, but for a short time it was not...My fabulous, sweet, loving BFF Kim let us use her awesome cabin in Utah...We were all so excited to get up there...We get to the cabin and excitingly we head for the door...In Vegas it was hot so we all drove in summer clothes...I had flip-flops and a tank top on...I start heading up to the cabin stairs, and even though a lot of the snow melted there was still some left...I'm carefully walking with key in hand, phone in another, purse around my shoulder trying not to fall...I take a step and hit soft snow...You know what happened next, right?  Yes, I fell into the snow, and so did the key...It's about 30 something degrees out there and I lost the key...We looked for an hour and it started to get colder...So, my BFF told us another way to get in and we did....So here is my hubby looking for the key the next morning...We did end up finding it...
Praise JESUS!!!

Edit Me 2012-Week 18

Another week of fun...Great shot by L'INSTANT...Man, I could have gone crazy with editing this shot...It was super fun and I had so many ideas, but I know there a lot of edits to look at... With that said, my edit is below:

Gum Nut

 I hit the exposure, highlighted, saturated and slightly changed the contrast and temp on it...I used the "burst" tool from PicMonkey program and put a frame around it...I like it, hope everyone does...
