Days 14 - 21



I'm not even really sure how I've managed to be so busy this week, but it's suddenly Friday night and I haven't posted a single picture since last Thursday!

This weekend was Homecoming at my alma mater, and this is K, one of my former roommates and still one of my closest friends. Aren't her eyes gorgeous?!
My sorority has a brother fraternity, and every year at homecoming the two groups meet up at the oldest building on campus to take pictures and socialize. This group of brothers happened to be posing for a picture at just the right spot to snag a silhouette. Also, it's really difficult to check an image on my camera in this sort of light...
Yankee Candles are one of my favorite indulgences. Shutter speed on this shot was 1/6th of a second. 
All credit for this one goes to my husband. The clock and this shot were his idea & doing! 
I broke down and took this one with my cell phone. And yes, the size on that is a 3. They're kids' shoes. My feet really are that small. Ain't no shame! (and before you go telling me I'm lucky that I can wear kids' shoes because they're cheaper, let me remind you that you don't really see stilettos in kids' sizes...You win some, you lose some!)
I'm a Knoxville girl and a Tennessee Vol through & through. What can you expect from me for "Something Orange" other than a Rocky Top t-shirt?
I gave my sister a card once that said something about avoiding the cement squirrels when driving, as they can really jack up your car. Cement squirrels are now a running joke between us, and she gave me this little guy a couple of years ago. He sits on my front porch and provided the perfect foreground for a bokeh shot of my Halloween lights. 
After Homecoming last weekend, and given the chilly temps in Knoxville this week, I've been living in this sweatshirt.  It's a little bit oversized, which means it's incredibly comfortable. Emory & Henry was a big part of my life before I went to college there (I went to church camp there all through middle and high school), and I absolutely consider it part of my identity now that I'm an alum. A shot of me wearing the sweatshirt seemed like the perfect solution for a faceless self-portrait. 
Shoo, I'm finally caught up! Hopefully I'll be able to stay on top of things a letter better for the last nine days of the challenge!

Aw squirrels! I LOVE your Bokeh picture and I'm really jealous you got one. I should probably try to do one on something other than the camera on my phone hahaha
