Photo blogging #challenge November 2017 #BLUE

I cannot believe that November is over already!!!

The theme for November photo blog and challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com was BLUE. I love the color blue and was excited to see what I would take pictures of to fit in with the theme.

I realized this month, a lot of my blue pictures were of the sky. We took a trip to Ireland this month and arrived about 8:00 in the morning. I love the morning sky. Looking at it is so relaxing. At the same time, I was beginning to hyperventilate because I was in Ireland!!!!!! Months of waiting were leading up to this trip.

We went to the Guinness storehouse and brewery for a tour. This is a picture of a light installation representing the Nitrogen air bubbles in a glass of Guinness. I told the Hubs that I want him to make me some lights like this for the house. He responded, “Take a picture and we will see.”

I would have thought that all the street signs in Ireland would have been green. I thought that was the national color 🙂 I guess they put some blue in there for variety. There was so much to do in Ireland, we need another trip to do it all. So many museums, so little time.

Of course, going to the Cliff of Moher was at the VERY top of my list of things to do in Ireland. It is a breathtaking as I imagined. I like visiting places like this because it impresses upon me the power found in nature. Beautiful. With the mist and fog, there was a slightly ominous quality as well.

Because I did not spend the entire month in Ireland, for my last picture, I chose a selfie I took at a wedding. I like how the blue lights reflected off of the building wall. I was part of the sparkler send off to the bride and groom. It was a beautiful end to a wonderful wedding. I wish the bride and groom much love and happiness ❤

These were just a few of the pictures that I chose for November.

Photo Blogging #Challenge November 2015 theme: #Morning #photoblog

November’s theme for the photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaablog.com/ was MORNING. I am not usually a morning person, so many of my pics will be of food. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for me. If I have to get up before noon, at least I can I eat good food. Other than that, it was not as difficult as I thought to find other photo opportunities.

This is my favorite Chobani flavor at the moment. I like eating dessert for breakfast.

We went to Chicago to visit friends. Saturday morning, we ate at Wildberry. This is their signature French toast. It was delicious! If you go to Wildberry, make sure you plan for at least an hour wait! And budget accordingly for parking meters! Breakfast was worth it though.

I tried to make this bacon wrapped grilled cheese sandwich I saw on a video on Facebook. The concept is nice, but the execution was not so great. The top layer of bacon burned even though the heat was on medium. The inner layer of bacon was not cooked all the way. The cheese did not melt. And the bread was soggy from all the bacon grease. Yuck! I love bacon and I love grilled cheese, but the combination did not turn out well. I think I might try again but use thinner bacon and thicker bread.

Black Friday morning, I went to CVS and bought all this stuff. With coupons and sales, I spent $6 total for $24 worth of products. Super couponing at its finest.

I had to take a road trip for work. The sun rise was so pretty that I had to take a picture.

Those are my pictures for November’s challenge. I hope you are inspired to go in the world and capture it with your camera!

June’s theme for the photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaablog.com was anything goes.

My fave cafe/restaurant Caffe 312 has Pistachio macaroons. This is quite possibly my favorite dessert.IMG_8729

I went to a wine tasting and I thought it started at 6 but it started at 6:30. While I waited for everything to get started, I took pictures. I like the way this turned out.

We went hiking at Jones Gap State Park in South Carolina. The hike was about 3 miles round trip. The day was perfect weather for hiking. The trail was rocky but not too steep. Our group had 5 children (all under 10 years old) and they were able to do the hike for the most part without getting too tired.

The local community theater performed Shrek the Musical. It was hilarious. I enjoyed myself immensely. The guy that played Donkey had the facial expressions down to such extent, I thought he was as good as the cartoon! The whole cast was great. It amazes me that there is so much talent in a town as small as ours.IMG_8952

The sunflowers that hubby planted have bloomed. They did not bloom as quickly as anticipated because there has not been that much rain.
