If you know anything about me, you know I’m pretty much a dude at heart. I’d choose football on my television, beer in my belly, hoodie and comfy pants on and a fire in the fireplace to pretty much any given situation in life. I’ve been a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan since my childhood. Born in Oklahoma, my mom raised me to love the Cowboys. She’d send me down the road to my uncle’s house (who was a Steelers fan at that time) to say “GO COWBOYS!”

Going to the Super Bowl? It’s been on my life’s to-do list for as long as I can remember. What I didn’t expect was the ability to make that dream a reality before my 35th birthday.
This year, after we paid our taxes and we paid for a vacation to Disney World for the girls, Michael and I decided to pull the trigger on this dream and just do it. If you know my husband, you know how creeky his wallet is, so it wasn’t an easy “yes” for him. We decided to head for Phoenix (where we grew up and where the Super Bowl 49 was being held) after our vacation.
IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE. Here is a little photo walk through of the day!
Here’s a video of the Patriots heading into the stadium. This has to be a real moment for these players, you know? It was so loud.
I will never forget this. After this game, Michael and I decided that each year our business grows, we’ll go back to the Super Bowl to celebrate. San Francisco next year, who’s coming with us? Let’s go, Cowboys!
Here we are with the most recent Project Life spread. I have to tell you the new AC Digitals papers and elements are giving me such a creative boost. As most of you know (if you read here often), I’m obsessed with the Cobalt kit from last year’s Project Life release. Still love it. It’s still my favorite, even with the new sets and the sets that are dropping this spring. However, the new patterns and color combos are giving me a “new” feeling in my spreads and I’m loving it! I’ll get back to Cobalt, that’s for sure, but for now, I love the AC Digitals options.
This was a very non-eventful week in the house of Moreno. If you feel like you don’t have enough pictures or your world isn’t very exciting, I hope these layouts might give you some inspiration. I purposely brought out my big girl camera one night to take pictures of our nightly routine because we were doing so little during the day. I also took series photos to fill. Notice the 3 photos of Kennedy in the tiny template all dressed up after her bath. That’s a good way to add variety even if you don’t have a lot of photo moments. I ended up with way more than I had originally thought I had.
I’m focusing on getting down on the girls’ level to take photos of them. I want to see the world the way they see it. I remember wearing my moms heels when I was little and feeling like I could see so much more when I was “taller.” I think the same is true when we become smaller. I get down on my stomach, I crouch down, I lay down. Try thinking on their level when taking their photos.
