Am I a hypocrite? Or a hippopotamus?

Yeah, let's go ahead and try to ignore how huge my boobs are look in this dress...
Sorry for the boring outfit. I was in the middle of getting dressed when I got distracted and ventured outside to check on the BBQ.... er, well to supervise my husband handling live fire.  We decided to spark up the grill today and with plans to hit the park later but the meat took longer than expected and heavy rain clouds kept rolling overhead laughing at us, spitting on us and then skipping away, mocking us and our optimism.
Anywho.  Since we've been busy for the past couple weekends, we haven't had a chance to look at trailers for the big move, but we're still cleaning up and cleaning out. Here's another load ready to head to Goodwill. I loooove getting rid of stuff. Too bad I'm too lazy to do a yard sale. We could use the money, but I just don't have the time nor the patience to sit in the Texas heat and humidity for ten hours only to pull in $15 at the end of the day... it has happened before.
  Today is the first day I've really got to try out my new camera. Oh yeah, did I mention I got a new camera?
OMG I am TOTALLY a photographer now! Let me take crappy pics of your wedding and your baby and your WHOLE FAMILY... because I have a CAMERA NOW!
Did I mention I'm a photographer now because I have new camera?!
Ugh, we all know at least one person like that. 
So with that little rant out of the way - here are some pics from the week. I have no clue what I'm doing. I just put the camera on auto-mode and press the button.

 And how frugal is Hollie? River's good shoes are still caked in mud from the faire last weekend, so I  turned his cheap outside-play shoes into fancy new shoes for church with shoe polish. Weeeeeee.
Speaking of frugal... um... maybe some of you have already seen this?

No, not that. Cedar typed that when I stepped away. I mean this:
My spinoff mom-blog, Modern Colors Two is now Quirky Bohemian Mama. I know the name is kind of lame but I needed to change the name of my blog to something that will attract the kind of readers I know I'll appeal to. Modern Colors Two was too vague and sounds like a site about interior  decorating. So, I thought long and hard - if someone put a gun to my head and said, "Label yourself or DIE!" I would say, "Erm, quirky... um, bohemian? Please don't shoot me, ok?.. and I need some fresh undies..."


  1. You look great in that dress and all the pics are fantastic! You ARE a photographer :D
    I'm donating a ton of stuff to Goodwill, too. I just don't have the time to mess with it and it has to go.

  2. Look at you, you photographer you! Love the name of your new blog.

    I know how you feel about selling, we did a carboot and made a little less than £50 as everyone wanted things for pence. An early early morning, combined with baking sun and having to take almost everything home again put me off doing it again.

  3. Loving the new new name, Hollie! And ehrmahgerd! Look at you with your new fancy camera! You ARE a photographer, dahling:D

  4. Congrats on the camera. And the dress is cute -- pretty colors and nice print. Your posts are always so entertaining; your personality comes right through the screen.

  5. Ha ha! I always look forward to your posts and sense of humour.

    The photos are GREAT! Look at you...fancy Ms. photographer woman.


  6. "auto-mode" there's another setting?

  7. I love Quirky Bohemian Mama as your new blog name. That'll pull them in and all the big bucks too. The great thing about a new camera is you can point at anything and instantly it becomes art and you are a professional. Seriously, great photos. I'm glad you're properly armed now.

  8. First of all I love the dress and the colourful ethno print and I think it suits you and makes your boobs look fab! ;)
    Also: Aaaaaaw your kiddos are the cutest, look at them! I love it when you post so many pics! River looks so grown up already, gaah time flies!

  9. I love the cool new blog name and also how fab you look in that dress. Big boobs? If you've got 'em, flaunt 'em! x

  10. Read this story with your child. Download the Bible lesson and enjoy looking at the pictures together.
