05.29.10 Photo of the Day

We went to a wedding in Paris this weekend....lest you get excited - it was Paris, Texas. Ha-ha.  Anyway, it was an outdoor wedding at 5:00 pm and the temperature hoovered around 95 degrees.  It was bleeping hot. And we weren't sitting in the shade or anything. The bride was beautiful and the groom was very handsome, but my photo of the day is of the bride's parents walking back up the isle.  Don't they look happy?

05.28.10 Photo of the Day & Friday Photo Walk

This week I went to the closest park to my office, which I had previously avoided since it has been underconstruction.  They finally finished a portion of it so I thought this would be a good week to try it out.  It was so stinking hot, I wanted to be able to get back to the office ASAP!  Not sure I can handle a June, July and August walk.  We'll have to wait and see...

These guys littered the ground everywhere.  Someone must've had a great water balloon fight.
Yes, this is out of focus. And on purpose.  No idea why I liked it this way, but I thought it was cool.

Creepy little spider.

Red rings.


There are still unfinished portions...

This grass is apparently off limits.

Yeah, it's a trash can.

More balloon death.  Did you know that every summer a million balloons lose their lives?

Hello. My name is Sarah and I suck at the self portrait. : ) I was attmepting to take a picture of my snazzy new glasses that I picked up this afternoon. This was the best one....maybe that's a book someone can write - mastering the self portrait!

To whom it may concern: I don't wear contacts. This little guy had been hanging around our bathroom for a few days. I am sure that if they belonged someone at my house they would be in the trash not still on the counter... I'm just saying.

It's perfect grilling weather here in the Lone Star state! I love this time of year because when "we're" grilling, I don't have to cook! I just season the vegetables and send them outside with Ditz. It's such a lovely break!

I heart faces: Yellow

Dear yellow, I don't understand why we can't be friends.  Everytime I put you near anyone, you just ruin the picture.  Sure, you think it's funny, but I am the one that loses.  How would you like it if I stuck my tongue out in all your pictures??  Probably wouldn't like it that much, I bet.  Anyway, I hate that we can't be friends. The only decent shot I have of anyone in your vacinity is of Natalie and it's not even super great.  I certainly hope that you will think about what you've done.  Love, Sarah.

Check out the people yellow is friends with over at i heart faces!!

Our first ever attempt at a gluten free cake. I think the results were awesome (Ditz ate a pretty good piece and he doesn't even need it to be gluten free). After this first attempt, I am a liitle more confident of trying something from scratch.

05.22.10 Photo of the Day

For the first time in 211 days, my POTD comes from my iPhone. We went to watch the Ft Worth Cats minor league baseball team on Saturday night. I didn't bring my camera because it clearly stated no cameras on the tickets. Of course, everyone and their mama had one, so I'll know for next time. It was a good game and went 10 innings before we lost to the Lincoln, Nebraska Saltdogs.

Friday Photo Walk. A very short one this time. After two and a half days of computer issues at work they finally came back up. That meant no leaving for lunch other than to walk and pick up from Pei Wei. (I don't care for Chipotle, but their signs are funny). Being in the part of uptown Dallas that we are in, parking is at a prememium!

What do you do when your computers have been down for two days at work? Play pictionary on the glass walls of the office, of course. The bad thing is that we all apparently really suck at pictionary. No one got a single one.

Today at work our computers were down all day, so the girls in the office headed over to Chilis for lunch. We had awful service, which is why I have a lemon in my water. I hate lemon in my water. Yuck.

Ah, weeds. Very pretty unless they are in my yard - then they are not so pretty. And yes, I was laying on the ground in the middle of the street to take this!

We steal hotel keys. There, you caught us. Ok, maybe not steal, but certainly keep one from every trip. Here are three years worth of fun trips & business trips. I think we lost some at some point because it seems like there are less. Do you see the one with the hole punch? That's the one Ditz's India trip!

05.16.10 Photo of the Day Take 2

05.16.10 POTD, originally uploaded by Sarah (SarahDanyelle).

Sorry guys, I am trying out the Flickr blog post thing to see if I like it...... Just ignore me.

We lead such an exciting life sometimes. Saturday was all about cleaning and Sunday was all about making repairs to our fence. Everytime a wood post breaks we replace it with a metal pole. We are now about 50/50 wood / metal. There's a big storm getting ready to blow through as I write this which means that next weekend we'll probably be replacing another post.


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

It's cleaning day at the Jones house! I won't lie, I hate it. A lot. But the bathroom is sparkling now!

I heart faces & flowers

This weeks challenge over at I heart faces is faces and flowers! Flowers are one of my favorite things in the world to photograph, it's getting people in the photo that I generally have this issue with!  Well, this week I found a couple of good ones that met the qualifications, but at the end of the day I went with this one because it's funny.  This is my friend's daughter on a photoshoot. Pretending to be a cow. Well, a little more than pretending actually, she's actually eating the grass.  I was just trying to get a cute picture of her in the field of wild flowers.....

There are flowers and a face! : ) Go check out more faces and flowers over at i heart faces.

05.14.10 Photo of the Day & Friday Photowalk

Another week down! This Friday I did manage to only do one walk, meaning I did not delete the card like last week.  I thought about going back to the same first park as last week, but opted for a new one so that when I do make it back to the one from last week it will be "new." So this week I went to Coffee Park, again in University Park.  I've decided that when I grow up I want to live in University Park. Today's photo of the day is straight out of the camera.  I actually played around with it and ended up like the SOOC version best. How funny!
This is the fence that surrounds the park on the side that butts up against a major highway.

I love it when I see other people do an edit like this, but when I do it I'm just not sure.

The ground. I liked it.

Made in the USA.

I've tried to stay away from flowers lately since I seem to take so many pics of them, but this one caught my eye.

Coffee Park.  Seriously has the best playground around, but I alway avoid taking pictures of areas where kids are playing.  I am going to go back in bad weather to get some snaps.

I am loved. : )

I heart water meters. Don't ask.

Again with the vintage-y edit.  I still don't know about this one either.

The tree is eating this metal chain. : )

Until next week!!

Some days I feel like I am always going the wrong way. Especially when I am stuck in traffic for hours upon hours (or so it seems).

This is what you get on your dining room table when you have an electrical engineer for a husband who decides that we need ethernet in every room in the house - tons of this stuff littering our table.

You Capture: Yellow

I don't play the you capture game as often as I'd like and then the one week I have time, the theme is yellow.  I don't love yellow, barely even like yellow, but I did capture some this past week and will share.  This is also my 400th blog post. Man, I talk a lot.

Yum, my favorite nut mix: cashews, almonds & macadamia.

There's a tiny bit of yellow mixed in with all that red! (we like it hot)

I've been meaning to take this picture and share it for a while, as it really to me shows who we are.  See Ditz brought those gray ugly dishes into our relationship and I brought the pretty orange/yellow ones.   I'm not say he's doom and gloom and I am sunlight, but it just goes to show how different we are.  Now we need to get rid of these and get a matching set. Someday maybe.

And lastly a different version of one of last weeks POTD.  Yum, candy.

Check out more yellow at i should be folding laundry!
