Weekly Goal #7 and Oscars

Are you watching the Oscars? Who do you think was the best dressed? Right now my favorites are Jennifer Garner and Katherine Heigl. There were lots of beautiful dresses. As I have said before, I love watching the red carpet of the award shows. George Clooney mentioned that he and his girlfriend were in Vegas for Valentine's Day. For some reason, he forgot to mention that he saw me! Ha.

I have been asked many times about what camera I use, and it is the Nikon D40. I have the lens that it came with and the 55-200 VR. I love it and it makes taking pictures so easy. What I really want to do is take a Photoshop class. I think that is where pictures take on a whole new life. Maybe someday.

My personal goal of the week is to start eating healthier. I have been eating so poorly lately. It has to improve. My task of the week is to yet again clean out Lucy's closet. It feels like I did not even do this just a couple of months ago. I really have gotten better about shoppping for her, but her closet is still overflowing with things that are too small since she has hit a major growth spurt. Despite my best efforts of reducing the shopping, I think I have found my all time favorite children's clothes designer. For those of you who know me at all, you know how much shopping we have done for this girl, and to say I think I have found my all time favorite is a bold statement for me. I will share when I get a few pictures of the dresses I got Lucy in Vegas. They are the cutest. I would have liked to get them all, but I held back to only three. Can't wait for summer so we can break them out!

Fun pictures from the weekend

I'm not watching the Oscars (gasp, I know), but I LOVE the Lucy pics - especially the one you mentioned is your favorite as well with her hair in the backlight.

I just absolutely love your blog. Lucy is the cutest thing ever. We are waiting for our referral from vietnam and seeing pictures of lucy just keeps me going until our referral. Thank you so much for sharing lucy with her fans! I am going to add your link to my blog as soon as I get it going.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Kel, you're really turning into a great photographer. Photoshop is really easy once you get the hang of it...maybe an online tutorial could help you get started?

Meredith said...

Jennifer and Katherine have been my favorites so far too - love the red dress with the shoulder thingy! I also thought Keri Russell looked beautiful. The Lucy pictures just get cuter and cuter!

Kelly--the Oscars are ok, but since I haven't seen most of the movies, only like the clothes. I cannot believe that George did not acknowledge you!! The very idea. Ok, the pics are getting better every day. I love the one you do, but actually I love them all. I need to get a big one in the works of her--so you and Justin can work on my grandbaby wall. I still have to listen to her say el--boowww about fifty times a day! Miss you guys tons. Love and kisses, LeeLee

Kate said...

omg!!!!! the pics are awesommmmeee! she looks like a supermodel!

LaLa said...

I love all of the pictures. Ok..what program did you use to color the dress only? You are a wonderful photographer and you have such a beautiful little subject

Kristin said...

Kelly, I absolutely LOVE the pictures of Lucy and her shadow! What an amazing catch...

You're doing such a great job with the pictures. By the way, there are lots of online photoshop classes that you can take at your own pace...Let me know if you're interested and I can send you some links...

Good luck with your goal this week!

Norah said...

Ummm yeah, I was in bed by 8pm ! I can't wait to see the dresses : )

Kelli said...

I think you should start offering photography classes online! Your pictures are fantastic.

PS- I liked Katherine's and Jennifer's dresses too

Jen said...

The blue and brown dress is one of the cutest that I have seen! We watched a tiny bit of the Oscars last night...I have to say that Jennifer Garner,Cate Blanchett, and Nicole Kidman were my favorites! They looked so unbelievably elegant.

Of course, I was wearing my pajamas....ha ha!

she is growing up so fast

Katherine, aka katedrew94 said...

She is just beautiful! And that is a great climbing tree.

Kate said...

Loved Heidi Klum's red dress...definitely my fav.

Although, it doesn't hold a candle to Lucy in her blue and brown. My Lu has that same dress and I love the way it looks with her skin tone!

Your photos are awesome..great job!

jayna said...

Love all the pics Kelly! It was so good to see you and Lucy Saturday! She is too cute for words!

rachel said...

Great pics! That tree is very cool!

I watched part of the Oscars. I LOVED Katherine Heigl's dress. There is just something about a bright red evening gown.

I cannot believe you ate next to George Clooney. I don't think I could have kept my composure...he is sort of a "weakness" of mine. Ha ha.

KrisJ said...

I dont think you need to take a class, I think you need to teach one. The photos are beautiful! Good luck with the goal for this week Im actually working on the healthy thing for my family too.

C-mon said...

I have to clean out Jade's closet too. I know what ya mean about the clothes. They're so addicting. I love the pic with the light too.

Victoria said...

What a beautiful little girl! I can hardly believe how much she has grown. I really wish I got to see her more often. Your pictures of her are so good and your photog skils have really impressed me! Also, I love your goals, very inspiring but they are kind-of making me feel a little lazy! Thanks for the entertainment.

Chandra said...

Those are some great photos! I think the first one with her beautiful laugh and the second last one are my favorites.

Jenn said...

I have to ask where you got her blue and brown dress as it is adorable! I keep staring at it to figure if I could make it myself. The fabric looks like it would fit right in with my Amy Butler collection.

The twins like seeing Lucy's video...they laugh like crazy and so do I (the accent is to die for!)

Amber said...

love all of the new pics!

abc123vn said...

Emily said...

xxoo

I just lost a huge comment - blah blogger.

The lighting in her hair and the coloring on the shadows pics are awesome! Good job, girl! Who made THAT dress!? Give a girl SOMETHING since you just put it out there about your awesome new find and left it hanging! haha

I'm selling off and getting rid of all Addy's clothes that don't fit from her WHOLE LIFE and it is killing me slowly.

craftymommy said...

Lucy's smile would brighten anyone's day. Photoshop is easy once you learn the tools. There's a book called Classroom in a Book that does a decent job of teaching things. We use the Classroom in a Book series at work.

Jodean said...

Beautiful pictures! Lucy's hair is gettig so long!
