Friday Photo // Beautiful B&W

260.365: the pillow hog

I am so glad it’s Friday. Last weekend was a busy one, so I didn’t get to sleep in at all. I look forward to sleeping in! My boys like to wake up early, but on Saturdays, my littlest can get some extra zzzz’s with daddy and my oldest likes to sneak downstairs and watch cartoons or play with the tablet. I anticipate a lazy weekend and that’s quite alright with me.

Check out some other beautiful black & white photos on I Heart Faces.

I ♥ faces: BOYS


Let me introduce you to my new favorite photo of my kiddos. They wanted “fuel” for their bikes, so I asked for a photo in return. THEY OBLIGED. And it was pretty darn cute.

See more adoooorable photos at this week’s challenge on I ♥ faces!

I heart flowers.

135.365: the kalanchoe

diptych: yellow kalanchoe

My mother-in-law gave me two kalanchoe plants for Mother’s Day. Only the soft rubbery leaves give away that it is a succulent. I love the little bunches of flowers.

Go check out I Heart Faces to see more pretty flower photos! :)

I heart this giraffe face!

It’s Pet Week over at I Heart Faces. This isn’t my pet (they didn’t even let us touch it!) but that’s ok.

giraffe: up close

Obviously, we had a trip to the zoo! Visiting the Houston Zoo has been an Easter tradition in my family for as long as I can remember. Since becoming an adult and having kiddos of my own, I’ve been allowed to skip it a few years. We missed Nate’s first AND second because he was sick those years! I thought he was coming up with a new Easter tradition, but he was 100% for his third and had a blast. We missed another since then, but THIS year…we bought a membership and will definitely go as much as we can.

ESPECIALLY FOR THESE GUYS. Getting up close and personal with these giraffes was awesome! My boys fed them lettuce while I snapped away. I have more photos on Flickr, but THIS ONE…it stuck out at me for some reason. I just realllly like it.

2.365: bubbles

I think this is probably my favorite photo of the year. Can you believe March is right around the corner? My birthday is next week! Or so my family keeps reminding me. I didn’t even know this was the last day of February! Why is this year going by faster than all the others? Slow down, 2011.

Anyway! I love love these bubbles. The theme at I Heart Faces this week is “Anything But a Face,” so I thought it would be perfect. You can include a face, but it doesn’t have to be the subject of your photo, which is a requirement in 99% of the themes. (duh)
