Weekend Words Challenge

Okay, so I'm a little late, and I'm cheating because I only have one half of the assignment complete.

Lately, Los Angeles has been experiencing suffocating weather. It's been hot and humid for over a week, and we're ready for it to be over. We're used to a dry 75 degrees, maybe 80, every day. It's been in the 90s and 100s, with 70 to 90 percent humidity. However, with this weird heat wave is a low pressure system, which has been giving us clouds. We rarely have clouds in LA. It's nice to see them. So, the low pressure system is the Giver, but I don't have a picture of it. Here are the gifts:

Stuff Portrait Fridays! as encouraged by Kristine Stone:

1. Stuff Unnoticed

As hard as it might be to believe, some people don't notice that I have my tongue pierced.

(Composition is hard when you're doing a self-portrait!!)

2. Your Wish

Is there anything else to say?

3. Stuff Under Your Sink

The magical place beneath our kitchen sink isn't really that exciting, but here it is:

What is pretty exciting is our Shoe Pit, which is all of our shoes in the only place they'll fit: the floor of our closet. This, ladies and gentlemen, is what Gina and I have to dig through every single day to find the shoes we want to wear. Good (or bad) for us, we each alternate between only 2 pairs of shoes.

Weekend Words Challenge

San Diego

Gina and I had a fantastic weekend in San Diego. We saw the Indigo Girls here...


...and saw sunsets like this:

Sunset over the marina.

This is where we spent most of our day on Saturday, having drinks and food brought directly to us...

Humphreys pool.

...and THIS is what happens to my face when I'm in the sun for a whole weekend:


And for the first time in a long time, we got to just be with each other, without anyone else:


It was a good thing.

Weekend Words Challenge

I found another game. It's called the Weekend Words Challenge. It's at The Odd Mix. Every week he gives two words, and he wants you to post pictures illustrating those words. This week's words were Entice and Fulfill.



Happy Monday.

I recently found out about Kristine Stone's website where, every week, she gives you three prompts and encourages you to take/post pictures inspired by the three prompts. This seemed nothing short of amazing to me, so I'm doing it! Hopefully every week. The game is called Stuff Portrait Friday. And guess what? It's Friday! And I have pictures of stuff!

She's getting married this weekend, so there's a bit of a wedding theme...

"Your Love"

Most of you know, that's Gina. Most of you also know that we don't have a kid (yet), and that sunshine you see pouring out of her face is there because she's holding her very first nephew, Giovanni. Imagine what her face will look like when she's holding her first child.

"Honeymoon" (Take us somewhere with your photo.)

This was taken way back in Katie-is-crazy-and-doesn't-own-a-digital-camera! phase of my life. This is in Hawaii, on Maui, near the Sheraton Maui. I was there NOT on vacation but for work. I only spent three days there, and two of those days were travel days, and it rained the last day, but Hawaii is still the best place I've ever visited.

"Something Blue"

I kinda like this picture. Can you guess what it is?

And that's it! The very first Stuff Portrait Friday on It's Katie, everybody!

Have a great weekend. We're off to see the Indigo Girls in San Diego tonight.
