Mommy & Son Date #CollegeFootball

The weather was absolutely gorgeous this past weekend in Connecticut. We really could not have asked for better weather to be outdoors especially in Connecticut. Unfortunately, UCONN's record with 5:5 and their opponents were undefeated. My little guy was not thrilled at all about seeing this game at first. He explained to me that there was a high chance of this game being a blowout. None the less, I explained to my son that we will still be at the game cheering our team on. 

I am so happy that we did decide to attend. The game was so much fun, it wasn't a blowout, and UCONN won! YAY!

Night Project 52 week 46 of 52

Here's my submission for Project 52 for this week. I rarely every capture pictures at night. They usually come out pretty horrible. I managed to snap a couple of pictures during a double date with the newlyweds (my sister and her husband).

We had so much fun this night. Looking forward to the next double date.

My Christmas Wish List

I know, I know, what you're thinking... I decided to keep with the tradition and share my Wish List for this year. It's called a "Wish List" right. I really do not know what type of Canon I want, However, a new one would greatly be appreciated if it's in the horizons. Mainly because the Mister usually has his, and my camera does not have the flip screen which is a huge time saver when recording YouTube videos. I may just start using my cell phone. Of course, I would sell my T3 if I was to receive a new camera. This is more so of a need and not a want...
Although I do love my IMac, I would really want to give her a little sister to play with. All jokes aside, I have been going back and forth about the possibility of purchasing a MacBook Pro. However, I haven't had my IMac for a year yet. Even though I prefer to work on my IMac. There are times I could really use a laptop to get work done, and I'm tired of wasting money on "Good Deal" computers **sigh**. 
The Loubintons are just super sexy and need to be added to my wardrobe and the LV is more so an investment **wink**. 

Anywho, this is just a "Wish List" I really have everything I want. I really can't think of anything else I might want.

My First Silhouette Cameo Project

As you guys know I am the Queen of DIY in my head. LOL. No, seriously. I really truly enjoy DIY projects. I still do them. However, they just don't make it to the Blog all most of the time. I have been considering purchasing a cut machine better known as a Cricut or Silhouette Cameo since I became a Blogger years ago. These machines are pricey. I'm not sure why I never purchased a machine (I guess out of sight, out of mind) Anywho, I decided to purchase a machine a couple of weeks ago and it just came in the mail yesterday. Ummm, you guys know I was stalking the mail. (I was actually hoping the machine was going to arrive last week.) 

When my new baby arrived yesterday. I had a bit of work that needed to be done first before I could play with her... Let's just say that I was up all night trying to figure things out once I could. I even cut my mat due to the image not being placed right on my screen. After many trials and errors. I decided not to give up and I finally have a successful project to share with you guys. I purchased this mug at my local Thrift Store. I believe mix match 5 for $1. I actually love how it came out, and I look forward to actually creating my own images. 

Anywho, if you have any tips, suggestions, links please share them below. I don't want this machine to collect dust.

Christmas Tree Love

It is almost that time for us to put our Christmas tree up. (we put our Christmas tree up a day after Thanksgiving here ). I am trying to get the Mister to consider the idea of putting our tree up after Halloween and he's not really trying to hear it. Plus, I'm trying to figure out where we're going to put the tree in our little home anyways.

Anywho, if you follow me on SnapChat (SimplyTasheena). I went to Target yesterday and I am in love with their wrapping paper and decor. I'm not sure if I'm going to go with a color scheme or what. However, I went on Pinterest and I am loving the Christmass trees below.

Low Light Project 52: 43 of 52

Ok, so I was one of those people waiting for the FedEx person to come with my new bestie. No, I'm not one of those people who purchase a new iPhone every time it comes out. (nothing is wrong with it if that's your style) This is actually my second iPhone. I was never was one of those people who rush to get a new phone. I actually remember the day. I was able to upgrade ever year, and never really took advantage of the opportunity. (sigh) 

Anywho, here is my submission for week 52.
