Happy Hour Friday....

Otin and Bambi are the originators of Happy Hour Friday... 'cos they're cool
like that, go visit their sites and you won't regret it!!!!

Now... I woke up at four this morning and thought about all the things I could add to
Happy Hour Friday, and now I can't remember them, but I'm happy that I can
wake up and think happy thoughts!!! some people wake up and worry.

Bambi asked the question once, "what's a good camera bag I can buy for my new camera?"
the answers came back that Crumpler does a good bag... well guess what? I
investigated and yes they are very cool... so I requested one for my upcoming
birthday and it arrived yesterday!!! I love it!! It has made me the happiest
woman alive.. that's kinda exaggerating but you get the picture!!

My sorta New Years not quite resolution was to be optimistic.. and it's working
like a champ. I have so far been very pleased with my attitude. Let's
hope it continues for the remaining eleven and a half months!

It's Friday and that makes me very happy, I get to wear jeans to work, new
jeans that I only paid $15.99 for. I once overheard a girl tell another girl that
"it's hard enough to find a good pair of jeans for $200 these days".... well my
dear, take it from someone older and wiser, jeans are jeans are jeans. I would
rather pay $15.99 and then use the other $186.01 to send both kids to
soccer, one of them to baton lessons and me to a photography class. The jeans
will fade and be tossed but the experience and life lessons will live forever!

And that's about it from me... not happy that I have lollygagged around here too
long and need to get to work. Love y'all... have a great weekend and don't
forget to stop by tomorrow and see who won the Green Givaway!!!!

me in cheap jeans taking pictures at Tahoe... yeah... now that's what I'm talking about!!!

I've never paid $200 for a pair of jeans and I can't imagine doing it!

woo woo hot mamma!!

I'm happy you're playing along with HHF... BUT you silly goose on the linky you have it going to your LPC blog (that you havent written on since Dec 12th... I know this cuz I followed the link... see??)

What kind of photography class? I think Barb and I are gonna take one in feb.

When the heck are you coming to visit me? I'm going thru McGilly withdrawals!

Ooops thanks for letting me know! I am not with it!!!! I have put up another link, which hopefully will work this time!!!

Wow, and I thought my $35 jeans were too expensive. I'd be thrilled to pass up on a few pairs of jeans and pay for a new lens if I were that girl. :)

I would definately like to take some classes too. Right now I'm devouring books but it's not the same as being able to get answers to my questions (and there are lots).

The class is being held at the local tech college, it's a local photographer who teaches it. He does three groups, a beginner, intemediate and advanced. I am skipping the beginner... cos i can. I was going to do this last Nov but didn't have the time to spare 'cos I was busy with other things... now I have Tues nights free so I'm pretty pumped to be able to go. I'll pass on any wonderful tips!!!!!

Happy Happy Friday!

I have bought expensive and cheap jeans, and I honestly like some of my Old Navy ones the best. I wasn't too impressed with the more expensive ones. They may have FELT softer from a material standpoint but they certainly didn't fit any better. I was expecting amazing results, nope they still start sagging after a couple hours just like the cheap ones! :)

Women spend all this money on jeans and then a guy just rips them off of you and throws them on the floor! Seems like a waste haha!

I glad you have so much to be happy about! I am that I lost 6 pounds this week!

Lori said...

I cannot imagine ever ever spending that much money on jeans...I don't care how flippin nice they are. Happy Friday! Cheers to finding your happy!

Allison said...

I've always had the taste for $200 jeans, but never the wallet to back it up. If it is the most expensive thing in the store, I will find it with no effort... happend a lot while we were remodeling our house, sigh!

Ohhh, photography class sounds like fun... one of the things too that is on my list, but will have to wait until I settle into the whole baby/mama thing. That is the problem with starting a family later in life... by the time you find out what you like, what you are good at and all... along comes baby. Anyway, enjoy your class!

one time I almost died paying $80 for a pair of jeans....I spilled bleach on them the very next day....I think the jeans god was telling me something.

You are the 2nd person I know to rave about the Crumpler bags. The other person bought one for her travels to India and said it is just fantastic.

Looking forward to free photography tips ;0)
