In Country Mode

Guys, I like Country Music. For some people country might be annoying and perhaps cheesy, 
but I think it's because they haven't given that genre a chance. 
Recently, I compiled many of my favorite country songs into one CD 
so that I can listen to it when I'm in Peru and remember Texas. I have lost count on 
the number of times I've listened to this cd in my car already. 
I'm telling you, it's genious! haha, joking, but you might actually like it! 
If you're already a country fan, then I am almost sure you'll like my little compilation 
(as I have old and new)! 
If you don't like country, then I think you should click below and listen to 
some of the songs; maybe start with number two... such cool beat.
(note: # 14 is hilarous--he's talking about his Willie Nelson CD FYI, #3 is sad but beautiful)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! And enjoy your Memorial Day :)

here it is:

Two songs missing (were not available in that site):
Fool Hearted Memory - George Strait
If You're Thinking You Want A Stranger - George Strait

Apologies & 2 Pictures

Dear Enjoyers,
I have to apologize once again for not writing as often as I used to. In only three months I will be traveling and there is sooo much stuff I need to take care of before leaving. I am going to be writing about it eventually. Today I actually wanted to tell you about an old friend from college, but I am here in my room trying to organize some things and I even have to go wash some dishes because I don't want my mom to see them in the morning! So, instead of hurrying and writing my post rushed, I thought I'd share with you two pictures that I sold within the last 5 days on Etsy (how exciting!!!):

This picture was taken with my Canon 30D here in Texas. 
I really love railroad tracks, so I 
was pretty excited to find this elevated one.

This picture was taken with my little Nikon CoolPix in Vienna, Austria. 
Three years ago (May 22nd) I was in that beautiful city. 
Wow, time passes by so faaaast. 
Anyway, I'm glad two people found them pretty 
and decided to support my little shop :)

I will come back to tell you the other story! :)


This is just a short post (the longer one I'm saving for later because I need a few images).
Don't you just love those pictures that you take on accident while trying
to figure out camera settings?
This is one of me, the day I went to 'One Night of Queen' 
and posed with a mustache. 

My friend named it 'The Evil Mexican Midget"

 My hair is so light in there, that it looks as if I was wearing a blonde wig
My nose just looks too funny. Oh well

Fabulous Fridays: Mothers

Thought: Today I want to dedicate this post to my mom as well as all
the other wonderful mothers of this world (the ones with us
and the ones watching over us).  This weekend it's their day.
I can't believe they only have one a year... there 
should be more Mother holidays, don't you think?
My brothers and I are going to give her a card and
some other little things (she reads this, so shhh).
But today I want to dedicate two songs to her and
show you a few wonderful quotes I found. 
Mothers are special, everyone. Tell her how much you love her,
kiss her, hug her, go with her somewhere special. Sometimes
we take time for granted, and then later regret not spending
enough time with her. So do it! and not just for her special day, but 
everytime you can. 

Two songs I dedicate to my mom:

[...Thank you for loving me 
For being my eyes 
When I couldn't see 
For parting my lips 
When I couldn't breathe 
Thank you for loving me 

You pick me up when I fall down 
You ring the bell before they count me out 
If I was drowning you would part the sea 
And risk your own life to rescue me...] 

[...You are so beautiful to me
Such joy and happiness you bring 
Such joy and happiness you bring 
Like a dream 
A guiding light that shines in the night 
Heavens gift to me 
You are so beautiful to me...] 

Quotes: M is for the million things she gives me
O means only that she's soft to hold
T for the things she tries to teach me
H is for her heart of purest gold
E for her eyes with love light shining
R means right and right she'll always be

Put them all together they spell Mother,
A word that means the world to me
- Author Unknown

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.  ~Author Unknown

Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.  ~Marion C. Garretty, quoted in A Little Spoonful of Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.  ~Jewish Proverb

My mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being.  I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune.  ~Graycie Harmon

For those of you who may not have your mama here anymore,
remember that she will always be in your heart, and from wherever 
she is, I'm sure she continues to love you and care for you in a 
way the only mothers can.  The love they give is so strong, that no
physical change could ever take it away. God bless them <3

ACP Contest

Hello everyone! How have you been? It's been a few days since I last 
wrote here, I know :( I hope everyone's days have been great. 
Mine have been a little busy as I now have a 
weekend job too. But here I am, dedicating some time to my blog today.
So, last month I entered this contest held by the Austin Center for Photography
(website here) called "Two."
The interpretation of this theme was up to us; we could submit a maximum of 5 images.
I wonder if they already saw mine, I wonder what they thought of them,
I wonder how many chances of winning I have. We'll see!
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you the 5 pictures I submitted.

  I hope you were able to see the theme 'two' in each of them :D
