We picked up some plants from Homever. They were quite cheap and they help bring some life into our white box. Here's one of the bamboo plants that we picked up:
This is another plant we decided to purchase. The thing I love the best about these plants--low maintenance, baby!
This little sucker sits nicely on our kitchen table:
I also got some digital prints enlarged from Costco and framed. If you're looking for cheap prints and you have a Costco nearby, I would suggest to get your prints done there. It's only 150w (15 cents) for a 4x6 print and if you're looking to go even bigger it's 700w (70 cents) for a 8x10. Want to go larger? The price jumps to 2500w ($2.50US) for a 11x14. You just bring your photos on your memory card and insert it into the computer at the Photo Counter. It's quite simple and easy to use. Now let's get to something important--don't forget to crop your photos to the 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, or 11x14 specifications before you show up at Costco. This is exactly what I forgot to do and I quickly remember at the last minute. So, with a game of charades I was able to get the employee to show me my pictures before she printed them. My picture now have a couple white borders on each side because of my lack of foresight-doh!
Here are the photos we printed in 11x14. A picture of the sun rise in Dubai and another of Devante's cute little dog:
...here's the view from the beach at the Hilton Beach Club in Ras Al-Khaimah and a shot of the Burj Al-Arab hotel in Dubai:
A quick question for the readers out there using Internet Explorer: are you getting errors when you try to load my blog? I noticed my sidebar on the right has dropped to the bottom (I've had this problem in the past) and also IE gives a pop up error. Although, browsing with Firefox gives no errors whatsoever. I'm trying to remedy the situation and will fix this ASAP. AsianTom pointed this out, thanks!
