Bio & Headshot

Well Hello there! If you've stumbled your way to this blog WELCOME! I'm a widwestern gal who is darn crafty. I love taking all kinds of pictures,  but taking funny ones of myself are my favourite. I am a t.v. and movie addict who can remeber all kinds of movie history, actors names, dates and trivia, however, I cannot seem to remember where I put my purse, keys and sometimes my children! 

To learn more about me you can get a backstage tour by clicking on the different links and visiting the bio/headshot area.

Capture Life

I'm not an outdoors kind of girl.

I am not an adreneline junkie.

I don't like to sit on an airplane let alone jump out of one.

I will never get on the Tower of Terror... EVER.

I like to keep my two feet on the ground.

But something I am is ... a gadget kind of girl...


 These are my latest gadgets.

I've wanted them since I first saw them.

You may remeber that I wear the same shoes everyday... my Frye cowboy boot mules.

So, for me to think of putting a different shoe on is a big deal in my world.

This shoe is marketed as a shoe that will help you firm and tone your tush as you walk.

I originally planned on just wearing them in the house, but then our very young neighbor passed away from pancreatic cancer and he and his wife used to go for walks.

I got to thinking...

 why not ask her and a couple of our other neighbors to keep walking with her.

So here I am walking, and I love it.

Now, I also have to say the shoes are amazing...

No, my butt is not transformed, however, I can report that the shoes are the most amazing things to walk in. I do not get shin splints in these. I end up feeling it in my hips, calves, and backs of my legs.

I spend alot of time from the months of January to March complaining and longing for the weather to change, only to have it blossom and then simply miss it.

I am ashamed to admit that this...

is just steps from my house and I have never fully appreciated it till now.


Yesterday I took my camera with and CAPTURED this...


It was wonderful to get out in the the fresh air, alone, enjoying the quite and just taking in the beauty of my surroundings.

And I thought to myself... sometimes I need to ...



Take a leap.... cross the bridge...

 walk my own path, forge ahead, and try new things...

So that I don't miss the...


the simple beauty that surrounds me.

What will you CAPTURE today?....

I'm going to...







Feelin'in a little like Mrs. Robinson...

You may remeber this post from back in December

This was the entry about Brad playing a trick on me with my new phone.

Well, after that he made up for it by getting me the real thing for Christmas!

 and he delivered him to me this past March!



 Imagine my shock as he scanned the audience looking for me...

and then pointed me out!

He said Di... this ones for you!

 Michael, (cuz we're tight like that now) was worried that Brad might be a little upset with all the attention he was giving me...

and he said  to Brad....


  What can I tell ya pal?...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            You brought this on yourself!

Then Michael surprised me with  these...

             I got this next shot from the backstage VIP area!                                                                          


 I wish!


Obviously that is all a fantasy.

Michael sounded great,

that is really what  I was there for, the music ...

after all it's only his voice that I am attracted to... 




On Sunday our Ella turned 12.


She came into this world dancing her way right out of my womb.

She is...




a performer,

and a delight to have in our lives.

She has been dreaming of getting the same amount of gifts as her age.

I told my sister about the number thing and she then reminded me that she will be turning 27, and i could get a jump start on purchasing for her! LOL!

Ella was so excited to come home from school and see this decorating the living room table.


 This was one of her favorites.


 It's hard to believe she's 12!

It seems like just yesterday she looked like this. 




 Happy Birthday Ella!






New York City here we come!

Hello friends

This week I am going on a little adventure.

I am first going to DC and then we are driving to New York City!

I am so excited.

I've never been there.

I will be fullfilling a lifelong dream.

I will be standing on Broadway.

I would prefer that it was in a long black witches costume, a green face and a full orchestra,

but, I will be happy none the less!

Enjoy your week and I'll see you back on Friday...

or you can follow us on twitter!
