I’m participating in a Photography Challenge hosted by Our Wired Lives. The goal is to stretch your creativity and encourage you to pick up the camera. Here’s the list of the shots I’m aiming for:

So here’s Day 1: Self Portrait. It actually worked out that I had to get dressed up for an event anyways.

The necklace was a gift from Irving for Valentine’s Day.

I’m hoping my photos can get more artistic in the days ahead. That’s the goal anyways.

And I just had to share this dessert I had last night. Oh my gosh, how cute is this?

I promised it tasted as good as it looked.

We completely forgot about the time change last night. We woke up when we woke up, and we plowed through more our to-do list and really didn’t even notice the clocks changed. I guess that’s a good thing. Sometimes it’s nice not having an agenda, you literally loose track of time.

Yesterday, I spent a lot of time on Skype. I talked to my grandparents, my aunt and cousin, and my mom! (Hi Mom!)

Living 3,000 miles from my family is tough, but Skype definitely helps. Thank god for technology!

Last night, Erika and Timmy stayed after our dinner party and we all watched Polar Bear: Spy on the Ice. It was Awesome! It was so cute, and such a good story.

This photo was taken yesterday afternoon, but pretty much summed up the evening.

Be prepared for some better photos on Kelocity. I started stealing Irving’s camera, and I’m not afraid to use it (anymore).

I’m really trying to teach myself about photography and be a little more creative. I’m loving new photos that look like this!

I’m also making the photos a little bigger on the blog and taking away the rounded edges. Let’s try it for a bit and see if we like it, shall we? Let me know if you have any suggestions!

This morning, we headed over to the Americana in Glendale. We just wanted to get outside and stretch our legs for a bit. It was a beautiful morning!

We had a blast strolling around, holding hands and talking about our 10-year plan. haha. We love to dream together.

We worked up an appetite and headed to Acapulco for a champagne buffet brunch. We were seated in between a baby shower and a bachelorette party. But it was still a nice time.

Champagne included? Yes please! We enjoyed ourselves, but didn’t over indulge. The day was still young!

Then we walked around Henry’s, a fantastic grocery store with lots of fresh products. Right when we walked through the door, I saw this! (I bought two!)

They sell lots of things ala cart too. If you want to buy 3 peanuts or a half cup of sugar, you can! Today I grabbed a cup of shredded coconut for some oatmeal this week.

They even sell protein powder by the ounce.

Irving ordered some meat from the butcher and I perused around.

The rest of the afternoon was spent doing our taxes. Not fun. Have a great week everyone!
