Usually, when I haven't posted in a while, 
it's because my little life is in some sort of unusually boring drought...
not this time!!! 
I have been busy busy and spending time with some of my very favorites. :)
Uncle Brian, my mom's brother, came to visit from Sedona, Arizona. 
He is one of the most generous people I know...
He is an artist and photographer and gave me one of his cameras.
Ummm...YEAH! That's a Nikon D200!!
I gotta step my photography game up!! :) :) :)
He even spent two hours helping me to learn to use it. 
I have been messing around a bit, 
but I will be sure to start posting some pics when I "get good."
~Thanks so much, Uncle Bri!! Love ya!!~

On Sunday, one of my very besties came from Lowell for a visit...
The one and only ALANNA :) :) :)
We stayed up WAY too late 
catching up, goofing around, laughing, drinking (more than we should...)
especially since Dayt the Great was here bright and early Monday morning.
HAHAHAHA!!! I love me some Lana!! :) :) :)
Dayton trying to convince me, "Move all this stuff so I can fit in here!!" ;)

On Tuesday, we had a special visitor at PlayGroup
Johnna's adorable nephew, Luke. :)

Liv and I did a little shopping and a little crafting...
We puffpainted Livi a sparkly crown and a denim purse, 
and I bought little Violet this Easter outfit...
I'm going to girly it up with pink and purple swirls. :)
I'll let you know how it goes.
I couldn't resist it, 
I was inspired by the kiddos eggs...

Liv was so proud of her twinkle star purse...
The crown wasn't dry in time for a photoshoot...
but you know that's coming. :) :) :)

Tomorrow, the Red Sox will be visiting (please note post's common thread)
the Texas Rangers for their first game of the season. :)
Next Friday will be their home-opener against the Yanks.
Baseball makes me SO HAPPY! :) :) :)


  1. Crystal,
    How nice of your Uncle to give you his camera! Plus, private lessons!
    That is every blogger’s dream! Well, at least it’s my dream. I would even consider it winning a really go contest…Winner!

    Yes, you have been busy and being creative. Just might have to “borrow” a few ideas of yours to do with the grand kids.

  2. You've been a busy niece, auntie and friend and it looks like your visitors have enjoyed themselves too! :) I love Liv's accessories! Can't wait to see the photoshoot with your new Nikon camera!
    Love you.

  3. You enjoy your Nikon, sweet Crystal.

    Hope your week is off to a HaPPy start, sweet friend xxxxx
