8 Favorite Fotos

In honor of today being 08/08/08, I am posting 8 favorite pictures for the Friday Foto Finish Fiesta.
These pictures, like my life, are totally random.

This is Noodle. He was our very first foster dog, and I just love this picture.



This is me and my Princess, taken last week.



This is my stepson with his baby brother when he was first born. He is over a year old now.



This is my three kids and their cousin (far left), at Chipotle. The pic was taken from outside of the window.



This picture was taken at my parents' house. My parents do not have a dog, just a 'Bad Dog' sign, because they are weird. But one of our dogs and my brother's dog were in the yard, hanging out under the 'Bad Dog' sign, trying to act tough.



Dysfunctional Dad saw this raccoon in a palm tree at work one day. He took a pic with his cell phone and sent it to me. Adorable!



I took this pic one night outside of a church while the sun was setting.



Earlier this week, I took a basket of flowers to my hubby's firstborn baby's grave.



And there you have it, totally random pictures from my totally random brain.

I can see why these are favorites! Noodle looks like he would be a really fun dog. I love the sign... I need one of those too.

Kel said...

I absolutely loved these photos. I think my favorite is the one from outside Chipotle. Or maybe that's just me craving Chipotle? Anyway, very cool pictures.

Momo Fali said...

Dogs, a baby, sunset AND Chipotle?! Some of my favorite things.

And, the last photo...very touching.

Nicki said...

Very cool pics! My favorite is definitely the baby raccoon in the palm tree! The raccoon is so cute by itself, plus you don't usually expect top see raccoons in palm trees! Maybe pine trees and things like that. Cool post!

This was a great idea for 8/8/08 and I loved all these pictures - especially the one of you and your daughter and the one of the 4 kids - cute!

Have a good evening - Kellan

Kathryn said...

Those are great! The first one made me laugh out loud when I saw it. :)

OHmommy said...

Awwww.... i love the pic of you and your daughter, you guys look awesome.

krissy said...

Cool pics....and aren't you looking pretty darn hot.

Thanks for the tag and award. That will be tomorrow's post. You pretty much tagged everyone I know so I'm gonna have a really hard time with that. Theif!

I guess you have sparked my interest about the step son in heaven. It could be a good post if it isn't too personal. I'm not being nosy, just curious. You know how I love to fundraise for children, so I always wonder if he had a disease that I have fundraised for. Don't answer if you don't want! And hopefully i didn't overstep my boundries.

Alright, I gotta a helluva post to do and I want to cruise by some of your links.

Looking Good Hot Momma!

Anymommy & Momo,
Chipotle=crack. I LOVE that stuff.
Krissy, my husband's son was born prematurely and only lived for 22 days. One day if he's ok with it, I'll post more details about it. If you've fundraised for MOD, you've fundraised for him! We do a walk every year in his honor (I'll be hitting y'all up for money soon).
Thanks y'all!

This is my first time on your blog and I am thankful to have had the chance to check it out. Awesome pics. I love the humor behind the Bad Dog sign. How much do you think he would sell it for? JK, unfortunately, my dogs say that w/o the help of a sign. ;0

Outnumbered2to1 said...

Very cool idea. Love the eight pictures. I agree with pp that your daughter looks just like you, very pretty.

careysue said...

I agree with the others...your daughter looks just like you she's adorable just like her Mom!

Great pictures...it is a special day with it being 8-08-08!

Loved the raccoon too!

Susie said...

Great picture on Crazy 8's Day:-)

Mamahut said...

I love the one of the big bad dogs...at least they posed correctly for you. Your kids are very cute. I thought you were one of the kids!

EmBee said...

The picture of the kids behind the glass is a clever shot, I really like it!

Karen said...

Very cool photos. Love the one of the racoon in the plam tree. last place you'd expect t fins one of those...

Jennifer said...

Very fun collection of pics! Your daughter is adorable!

Kelly said...

You had me at ... Chipotle!
Love the look of your blog, love all the random pics.
I will be back...you've been warned ;)

JWilson said...

I came over from Candid Carrie and I love the random collection. I can't decided if the Chipolte or Racoon one is my favorite.

Teri said...

Those doggies are way too cute to be bad. Of course, Sweet Doggies probably wouldn't scare many people away.
Found you on Candid Carrie.

Lori said...

I love all the photos, but my favorite part of your post was when you said "My parents do not have a dog, just a 'Bad Dog' sign, because they are weird." :)

Lex the mom said...

You & your daughter are lovely!

Noodle looks adorable! I don't think I could foster a dog, I'd love them too much to let them go.

Your dad was lucky to catch that pic of the raccoon! How cool!

Great pics!

I love the pic of the flowers at the gravesite of your stepson. It touches home. We just had the anniversary of our daughters death yesterday--there is an epic post on my blog about it. Maybe your husband would like to read it. It was my therapy this year to help me get through and exceptionally bad day. Prayers are with him.

Your other pictures are great too. Sorry--the dogs don't look like they deserve that sign!! HEHE-- They are probably like mine--will like you to death before they will maul you.

What a great idea for 8-8-08 :)

I love these shots. Especially the one from Chipotle (LOVE that place).

You and your princess are so sweet.

Have a great weekend!

Caffeine Court said...

That raccoon is the cutest thing ever!

I thought of you yesterday, I took my girls to the SPCA and the Humane Society. We almost adopted a dog, but my husband freaked out at the thought of having 3 dogs.

We dropped off some dog treats and we will bring some to them every week. (Along with a cash donation.) That's the best we can do for now.

Sue said...

Very cute pictures! Lovely post idea too!

A Buns Life said...

OMG! YOU all are all so stinking cute....great photos, all of them.

MoziEsmé said...

What a great collection of photos!

You and your Princess look very much alike, by the way.

And those "bad dogs" have some work to do on their image! How cute.

Sunshine said...

I love all the pics! Especially how random they are...love the "stories" behind them too!

Candid Carrie said...

OH MY GOSH ... you know how you just sort of think how someone is going to look? Well, I had you lookin' cute, but you are adorable! What are you, like 22 maybe?

I love the reasons you love the pictures. Great post.

Oh, wear are you that there are racoons and palm trees. Silly me but I thought of them as pine tree kind of animal.

Holly said...

I absolutely love the picture taken outside the window of the kids. The lighting is perfect and it's gorgeous!

Insane Mama said...

I like the flower basket one!

Judy Haley (coffeejitters) said...

The Girl Next Door said...

Awesome photos! But I couldn't figure out who is who in the mother/daughter photo...not kidding. and the raccoon? Priceless. and how did he get such an awesome photo from a cell phone?!

Our Crooked Tree said...
