Monday Minute & a Weekend Re-Cap

Let me start off this nasty, dreary Monday by linking up with Ian for the Monday Minute! The Monday Minute is when Ian thinks up a bunch of random questions, and when I say random...they're pretty random, and then we the people answer them. Feel free to join in! Just head over to Ian's place, copy the questions, link up and have fun!

Monday Minute


1. Do you feel like I do?
I don't think I feel much like Ian. After all, he is a man and I am a woman.

2. Is it appropriate to answer a question with a question?
Not sure if it's appropriate or not, but I do know that sometimes it's just necessary.

3. What's wrong with people?
They're stupid, greedy, and stupid.

4. What's one redeeming quality about pickles
Good question...maybe you should ask the pickle.

5. If you won the lottery, how much money would you give to your favorite charity...me?
Well, I'll be the first to admit that I don't like to share. I might even have a hard time sharing with P & B...so, you'd be lucky if you got any. But...you know, it's not impossible.

Alright, now for my weekend re-cap....

We had half of a beautiful weekend. Friday and Saturday both were bright and sunny, with temperatures reaching the mid to upper 70's. I was in heaven. We took B to our park downtown, which is beautiful this time of year, so that I could take her Spring portraits. I wish B had been a little more cooperative with me for the picture taking part, but I was able to get a few good shots. You can see those here. Please let me know what you think about those :) I was a little disappointed in the number of good shots that I got, but I guess it's okay. You can't really make a 2 year old do anything, so the good ones I did get were mostly candid. Never try a posed picture with a 2 year old. They don't like it.

Saturday night P and I finally got to go see Alice in Wonderland. I LOVED it! I really had no complaints about it, except I would have changed the ending. If I had been Alice, I would have stayed in Wonderland and married the Mad Hatter. But maybe that's just because I think Johnny Depp is sexy, no matter who he plays :) Honestly though, great movie. I would definitely recommend it!

Yesterday, the clouds came out, the temperatures dropped and it rained...hard. Today isn't much different. The clouds are still out, no sun...and it's supposed to rain a little later on. Oh well, I'm not going to complain because it could be snow...

How was your weekend?

the monday minute seems fun. good answers. I can't see your pictures because of dumb work blocking flickr. And I want to see alice again with the hubby but in 3D but gotta find a sitter or something

Ian said...

Man I am a sucker for great pics like that. You do a great job. Speaking of "job" any movement on that stuff we talked about?

How dare you not share your winnings with me. Don't you know I am saving up for a shed?

Thanks for linking up! ;)

I need to link up with the MM next week. It's always entertaining.

I'm so glad you guys had a beautiful and sunny weekend like we did! Now if it would just stick around. There is only rain here today (but at least I get to wear my new boots...major plus).

I'm sorry that this comment has nothing to do with your post-- but I just saw the BEAUTIFUL picture (is it new or did I just not spot it before?) of you and your family at the beach. Was that professional photo? I just adore it!

Well it snowed here (as you know)... and the pictures are adorable. And you are correct... you just have to go with the flow with a 2-year-old. They are tricky!

Katherine said...

I SO want to see Alice and Wonderland. I'm going to have to check out the Monday Minute thing next week.

Umm...yeah, the weather. It was yucky here all weekend...ice, snow, sleet, and rain. Because spring isn't spring without a freak winter storm. :)

THe man just gets better looking with age!

Foursons said...

Oh my gosh, those questions are hilarious and I love your answers! I'd have a hard time sharing my lottery winnings too.

Shannon said...

I so want to see Alice in Wonderland! I agree with you on the lottery winnings! It's hard to share! Stopping in from Ian's Monday Minute, nice to meet ya!

Shell said...

I told Ian I wouldn't give him any money, either. LOL

Do you think Alice in Wonderland is appropriate for children? I was worried it would be too scary.

Kato said...

Oh my goodness look at how ADORABLE she is in her little blue dress. I love them! You are a great photographer...ever think of doing it professionally?

Weekend was good, except it snowed here!

I'm a little jealous that you are getting rain....I love the rain...A nice cup of coffee on the patio while it rains..ahhhh (I'm relaxed already)....
