Imma 'bout to blow your mind:

Yes, I HAVE A BACK YARD. And sometimes I go there.

Who knows why the hell I decided to try a few outdoor shots yesterday, but I did. Maybe it was the pants - they made me feel very adventurous.

I need to figure out the settings on my camera though, I look WAY more pasty outside than I do inside.  And more wrinkly. THANK YOU, ipiccy, for giving me the tool to erase a few here and there when necessary.

See? MUCH more tan and healthy and vibrant indoors, no?

I was all set to talk today about words and phrases that I like and dislike, and those outdoor pics just threw me for a loop. Well, I suppose I can still mention a few.

Like? Nougat. I don't know why, really. I always have. It's the promise of something inside something else I love (chocolate - DUH). I also heard the phrase "zero craps given," and can get on board with that one too. As in, "Did you hear what Kim and Kanye named their babeh?" to which I answer, "Nope, I could not give a crap. That is zero craps given." Other great words? Bacchanalia, supine, pickle, elixir, halcyon, and fart.

A word I don't like? Lesions. Which I mistyped in a text to Amy Bo Bamy tonight, when I told her I was watching the kids' swim lesions. I think we all know swim lesions are DISGUSTING. ANY kind of lesions are disgusting, really. Swim LESSONS, however, can be quite cute. 

What are some of your faves and gross-outs? Come ON - you KNOW you want to share.

Shirt: Old Navy
Pants: JC Penney
Shoes: Target
Necklace: World Market

I think I know your issue with shooting outside - if you change your white balance settings or make your iso lower - or just do as I do and saturate the heck out of your pics in editing!

Love the outfit, and I HATE the word lesions!

Z - thanks for the tips on my camera. I'll deffo try them out! As for the pants - I got them last week on clearance at my local Penneys. I think they were $20 with 25% off.
