I ❤ Faces: Blue

This week's theme over at I ❤ Faces is...Blue (bet you couldn't guess by the title of the post!). Oh the places you can go with this theme!

I had some great pictures lined up and ready for me to tweak on Picnik. Unfortunately, we've been in Boston all week (which was actually NOT unfortunate but incredibly wonderful!) and I didn't get a chance to work on the photos.

Thinking optimistically, I felt like I'd have plenty of time to do so when we got back from our trip. Sadly, Boston's Logan Airport was, once again, delayed (no shocker to my parents, right Mom and Dad?)! This predicament left me with no (free) internet--and you all now know my freebie infatuation thanks to Friday's confession--and, thus, no access to Picnik.

Fortunately, while we waited out the delay, the little Monkey herself found a GREAT photo-op at the new Kid's Port playgym in the terminal.
Now, all you mamas please don't shudder--yes, yes, I know--i took my daughter's health in my hands when 1) we took her on an airplane in the midst of Swine Flu outbreak season and 2) we let her run around a playground guaranteed to house millions of little germs just waiting to be "germinated".
Anyway, she loved playing on the Blue and white plane in her Blue and white outfit! I loved how perfect it was for this week's theme! Granted, all we had was an iPhone camera on hand but, hey, it did the trick!

A perfect example on finding reasons to be THANKFUL in everything (even airport delays)!







Make sure you check out other blue entries on I ❤ Faces!

{Side note: first thought when I think "Blue" is the song "Blue Bayou" sung by Linda Ronstadt. Anyone know it? My parents used to own a first-cut karaoke machine that featured pretty hilarious videos...they definitely got a lot better with new technology! Regardless, one of my mom's favorite videos was "Blue Bayou" and the twin and I'd croon it along with her. Pretty funny.}
