Boo-Yah! (Wait, I mean Buoy)

Wow, ya know, I'm a lil disappointed in myself.

I'm so big into photography and I haven't posted any legit "Hey, I'm a hippy and I frolic in a field while wearing a totally rad flowing skirt" artsy photos on here yet!

Well this must change stat.

This past weekend Bub and I headed out to the Hamptons to meet up with our friends Kate and Bill.

While there we ate at a mega cute out door restaurant, and since it was the Hamptons about 98% of all restaurants out there are beached themed.

Only I would quickly scarf down my corn chowder soup (ok, who brought the chick that orders the corn chowder in june?!) so I could hop the fence and take pics of the buoys out front.

Enjoy guys!

Probably my all time favorite color combination: Robins egg blue and red. HOLLA!

Look at that texture! (yum)

ahhh photography, I missed you.

True Story: I actually took these on my lil bright pink point-n-shoot camera, accidentally left the Canon Rebel at home (I know, I'm a terrible mom to my Rebel...I promise sweetie Mommy loves you)

What do you love to take pictures of?

Have you seen the latest lovely to enter the shop? It was inspired by beachy colors from my trip to the hamptons!

Things I Dugged up & A shop update!

Hi, my name is Leonora

and I'm a Mac.

While perusing on my laptop I came across some ridiculously old photo booth pics.

I haven't publicly humiliated myself in a while so I'm really past due here folks.

Please enjoy the following "slide show", I give you permission to hum some generic beat in your head as you scroll down. All slide shows need some sort of a happening beat in the background.

LEOZILLA WILL GETCHYOU! (yes, guys, my boss is pretty rad)

The "I'm annoyed steve doesn't want to sit next to me and make really obnoxious face photos with me" face.

oh THATS where our pics to paris where! Been lookin' for those...

Come ON how do you NOT love that face?! (Little nephew circa 2 years ago)

pretty sure real cowboys make this face--all the time.

hm. didn't think my eyes could get any bigger. umm win? I think?

you guys I totally started "the mustache" craze. You've seen it first here. (ok, thats a lie)

don't be fooled guys, I'm really not that studious (or awesome)

Brady Bunch. Except minus all the kids, and the parents, and that Alice chick. Ok this is so not like the brady bunch at all...disregard.

...did you guys know this?! Did Zack and Kelly ever get together? Did AC Slater cut the mullet?? Did Screech ever hit puberty?!  Did Zack Attack and The Five Aces make it big?? So many unanswered questions.

"Come at me bro!"

DISCLAIMER: this is not Snookie.

polaroid camera total and complete fail. Good thing an 8 pack of film costs like 15 bucks--no big deal.

 headbands by Much Love, Illy make me happy

...they also make me wanna do the "double fist, puckered lip, arms in a circle movement" white girl dance. (Yes, I do this dance in public. Yes, I'm quite amazing)

A moment of silence for my straw fedora.

 and now a lil sneak peek of a shop update!

these cards will be in the shop hopefully this week! It's a set of 4 prints that are sold as a bundle. This is just one of the prints above--mega stoked about these! <3

have you dug up any old photos lately?

Tutorial Tuesday! Free Organization Printables!

Guys, my craft area is-like-mega scary.

Pretty sure if I don't attack it soon Bub and I are going to come out of that area one day missing a vital limb.

And I don't know bout you, but I really enjoy my limbs, vital or not.

I know I can't be alone in this never ending battle of Me. VS. Craft Room.

Somehow it seems like the craft room always wins.

Well, craft room, your time has come to be schooled.

There is a new Sheriff in town. I hear she's pretty rad, loves cheese, will randomly get "lamb chops play along" stuck in her head at the most inconvenient times ever and likes to make things graphically on the computer.

Check em out guys! Craft room organizational tabby thingy ma jiggies.
yesss I know, I give you full permission to go absolutely bonkers on all your tupperware and place these bad boys everywhere.

I might even stick "cute stuff" on bub's forehead, just cause I can.

...and speaking of craft rooms and all things crafty related--didja see the latest lovely in the shop?

True Story: That is the phrase I give to everyone when I get asked "So hey, what is it exactly that you do for a living...?

Happy Tuesdays Loves!

Totally Normal Weekend Adventures

Most weekends the bubs and I just sit around and watch really lame reality TV shows while arguing over whose gonna wash the dishes. (I know, this totally oozes romance)

But this weekend we decided to change it up a notch.

Guys, guess where I went.

Give ya a hint: There were no water color paints and I couldn't wear a cute dress.

Yep, home girl went to the gun range!

I know, completely random, sorta terrifying, and kinda amazing.

I've never ever shot a real gun before ever. Unless you count hunting for ducks while using this beauty:

...and I know you hear that dog's laugh in your head--come on you KNOW that laugh

ok, back to real life (focus Leonora)

I was unsure what one would wear to the gun range, so I just kinda winged it.

pink flip flops and toes? Check.

pink gun goggle thingy-ma-bobbies? Check.

a teeny bow in my hair to show how bad ass I am? Totally check.

 True Store: The 7 year old kid behind me was totally kicking my butt.

I have no idea what I am doing.

 Bub "in the zone"

Man make things go boom *grunt grunt*

Uncle Mark giving it a go. He's pretty legit with those ear phone things on.

Bulls Eye.

Eat it Angelina Jolie, there is a good chance that next "totally bad ass tough chick who is really-like-skilled with a gun" movie roll might just go to yours truly.

Just saying. Watch your back Angie, ok?

have you done anything out of your comfort zone lately?
