I've been tagged by Charity, so now I have to share seven random facts that most people wouldn't know about me. Hmm... which of my many quirks should I share??

1. I can't stand to have a fly buzzing around when I'm either trying to eat or trying to sleep. I MUST get up & kill it. (This drives Jeff crazy! ;-)

2. I love & greatly miss living in my home state - Texas! (Yes, even though it's sooo hot)

3. I always go to sleep with socks on, but sometime during the night end up kicking them off. (This is very weird, I know. In fact, I have a funny story about that. The first year that I spent Christmas at Jeff's house in Colorado, I stayed in a little camper parked outside their house. When I got back to school, I received a package in the mail from Jeff's mom - it contained one lonely sock! :-) I was extremely embarrassed!)

4. The only guy I ever dated was my husband, Jeff. I was also the only girl he ever dated. (We think that's pretty cool, even though some people might think it a bit odd.)

5. I am not a "people person" at all.

6. I love pumpkin scented candles!

7. Even though I grew up in Mexico, I am the only member of my family (including my husband) that doesn't like spicy food. I can eat it if necessary, but I don't voluntarily put stuff in my food to make it hot.

Now I'm supposed to tag seven fellow-bloggers. So... I am going to tag my Mom, Lori, Renee, Melodie, Myranda, Brenda M. & Heather.

Your pictures are so beautiful. Do you have any tips that you can share? I often get out of focus pics, and I haven't figured out how to fix it.

How's that baby doin?

Hi, Beth! Baby is doing well & nausea seems to be finally easing off a bit - for which I'm so thankful! As for photography tips I can share: #1 - Know your camera & be very familiar with how it works. I know that sounds so elementary, but I have read the manual for my camera twice, now, & I've learned new things that it will do each time I read it. #2 - Turn off the flash. I prefer to use natural light as much as possible. Open all the window shades, let the sunshine in & snap away! #3 - Blurry photos are hard to avoid when you're shooting little ones - especially when it's more than one. I just take lots & lots of pictures & if I'm lucky, there will be a few that aren't blurry. Just a few things I've learned along the way....

Hello from South Florida! I hope that you are doing well. I was sorry to hear about Jeff's grandma in church on Sunday. I hope that you guys are doing well. It is so fun to look at your pictures.
