I caved and took some indoor photos this week.  I figure that you might actually like to see my winter outfits sans my outdoor boots.  Plus, it has been cold – I currently have zero motivation to photograph outside. 

I also spent some time updating my outfit gallery this week (another tactic to avoid going out in the cold) – all of my outfits are finally easily browse-able (is this a word?) in one place.

These indoor photos turned out better than expected – still not great, but decent enough…  I have been fiddling with my camera in an attempt to get decent indoor shots b/c I refuse to go through another winter with crappy photos. 

Yesterday I discovered CNN’s Just a Distraction video series.  Hilarious!  And stream-able at the office!
