Style Icon

One thing I love about Mrs. O’s style – it’s classic. Just like my style. Most days. She’s going to go down in history as one of the best dressed first ladies, right there with Jackie O. From my new favorite style blog, Mrs. O.

because everyone’s doing it

I can’t tell you how many times this video showed up on Twitter or in blogs this week. When I watched if for the first time on Wednesday, it had only been viewed 133,000 times. As of this morning, it has been viewed over 4.5 million times. It really doesn’t take long for things to go viral does it?

golf adventures, part II

The past 2 Sundays have been spent in a golf cart shooting pictures. Kevin is really focused on improving his golf game lately, and I am being the wonderful girlfriend and taking lots of pictures so he can analyze his swing. (It was actually fun, although quite hot out on the course.) Two weeks ago, we went to the course at the perfect time – no one ahead of us and no one else with the same tee time meant we were on our own.

While he warmed up at the driving range, I warmed up the camera.

I can’t just take pictures of Kevin though, especially since the course itself has so much beauty.

I really love when I can get a series of shots like the ones above, so then he really has something to study. I also love his crouching pose, it makes me think of Tiger Woods when he’s really concentrating.

Here he is clearly happy with his putt:

And, although it’s blurry, here’s the arm pump that came 1.5 seconds before the smile:

What’s he doing here? Oh yeah, using his expensive Sky Caddie to access the hole. I have to say that it is a pretty cool, and it’s very accurate.

It’s fun too, to get shots like these when I capture the dirt and grass in the air from his swing.

He might get mad for a minute when he sees this one, but it captures the essence of Kevin when he’s competing…against himself.

He’s so hard on himself. So if you wouldn’t mind, head on over to his new blog and give him some love. He started Going For Par to chronicle his journey in golf. He’s been quite busy lately, as you’ll notice, and next month he’s taking a 3-day lesson through the PGA Tour Academy at World Golf Village in St. Augustine.

Social Media Madness

I blog. I Twitter. I Facebook. I Link in. Throw in there that I also manage a Twitter and Facebook account and blog for work. Sometimes I feel OVERWHELMED by social media. Just look at this.

SocialMediaCollage

Sometimes I wonder why I do it all. But then I have days where I find article after article and person and person that has something valuable to offer me, and it’s totally worth it. I haven’t quite stuck with my “turn off and read” at night policy that I wanted to, but I suppose I’m okay with that.

How often do you use social media?
