Wow, That was a Long Break.

But, I'm back! 
So let's catch up, shall we?!

December 23rd through the 26th we were gone, celebrating Christmas with the Lloyds and Taylors. On the 26th, Seth and I came home without kids!! Seth's parents kept them from that Sunday all the way until the 30th! It was a much needed break that we got to share together. Seth took vacation that whole week and it was like a second honeymoon! Pure bliss. 

We watched 5 movies: 
Eclipse (don't waste your time or even your dollar - and this is coming from someone who loved the 1st two Twilight movies!), 
The Green Zone (although it sounds like it will be just another Borne movie, it isn't and was pretty good.),
Shutter Island (not a scary'll make you really confused while watching, but not scary. I refuse to watch scary movies, but Seth likes them and I was feeling bold that evening - plus I demanded to watch a predictable romantic comedy immediately afterwards, to hopefully save me from any nightmares.)
Leap Year (cute, predictable romantic comedy. I liked those!)

On the 30th, we had friends over and for New Year's Eve we chilled at home. 
Here's a lesson we learned - very old silly string will not work properly. Our kids will probably never trust us again when we say we have a "fun treat" for them.

This week I've been catching up on housework. I have a semi-schedule that I'm going to try hard to keep up with. It only requires me to clean 3 of the 7 days, so you'd think I would be able to do that!

 I've also been working on my Etsy shop. There are a bunch of new prints and more to come. Starting Monday (Jan 9th) I'll be giving away an 11x14 print on my photo blog, Katie Lloyd Photography.

And I've been doing a lot of photography. But, I'm not participating in the 365 Project this year. (yes, I know. I didn't finish posting from 2010...if you go to my photo blog, you can see a bunch of shots from the end of 2010 there.)  I do highly recommend it though if you are wanting to improve your own photo skills. You can join the same awesome bunch of girls with the Mommytography 365 Project! You won't be sorry. Tracy has a new site for it and everything - and from the looks of it, this year will be pretty awesome!

I have two reviews to get done soon, some shots of the kids to post, and I'm sure something else that I'm forgetting!

See you soon. 


  1. Busy, busy, busy. I so understand that. I am so excited y'all had those days together without children. Much needed for sure. Welcome back. :)

  2. PS...I saw your birds on a wire picture in your shop and it made me laugh. Have you seen the horrible problem we have been having here in Louisiana and Arkansas with all the dead blackbirds???? It is crazy. Over 3000 in AR and over 700 here. Spooky!
