FMTSO: Yello

Yay, I finally got motivated to go out and take fresh photos for this week's theme of yellow.
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do this week but yesterday I ended up at the Clark County Museum
and I found a few yellow items that I think are presentable for this post.

Of coure, this is a sign that can be found anywhere.
This one just happened to be at the museum.

An old truck with faded yellow paint.

Wagon Wheels

A yellow kitchen

A southwestern tiled dresser top

Western Union building

Okay, I know there isn't any yellow in this picture but I just had to throw it in there anyway.
This mirror was hanging in a replica antique shop at the museum.
Even though there is a price tag on the item, it isn't for sale. It's just to show how the antique shop looked back in the day.

I had fun in several different mirrors.  I guess I can be a ham when it's just me taking the photos.
I've been doing a lot of things on my own lately because I don't have anyone to hang out with so I try to make the most of it.  Haha.

Oh, and my blog post wouldn't be true to me if I didn't throw one photo in from my archive.

This is from my first beginner's group field trip last year.

From the same field trip.

I hope you all enjoyed my mellow yellow..

Have you heard of the book, The 5 Languages of Love by Gary Chapman?   I read the book several years ago and I thought it was phenomenal.  I think all couples should read it together so that they can learn each other's love language and have a better understanding of their relationship. 

"Of the countless ways we can show love to one another, five key categories, or five love languages, proved to be universal and comprehensive—everyone has a love language, and we all identify primarily with one of the five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch."

The website has a quiz you can take to find out which love language you speak and the definition of your love language.  The highest number in a particular section determines what type of love language you speak.  My love language for instance, is equal among three different types because I scored 9, 9, and 9 in three areas making 9 the high score.  I thought it was quite interesting because It was spot on.  Seriously, it fits me like a glove.  My love language is Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, and Quality Time. All of these are equally important to me.

Words of Affirmation:  Actions don't always speak louder than words if this is your love language.  Unsolicited compliments mean the world to you.  Hearing the words, "I love you" are important-hearing the reasons behind that love sens your spirits skyward.  Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.

 Physical Touch:  This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive

Quality Time: In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.

Yes, my language is three types rolled into one.  Hmmm, I wonder if this makes me more difficult to be in a relationship with?  I do get upset very easily if I feel ignored or left hanging for a period of time.

To find out your own love language click here and after you learn what type of love language you speak please leave it in my comment section.  I'm curious to know what everyone learns about themselves.  Thank you and have fun with this quiz.  When you click on the link you will see several icons, one for wives one for husbands one for teens, one for singles, etc. just click on the one that applies to you.

I read this on Twitter and thought I would repost for all you Virgo's and the people who want to date them or for those who are married to them.

Recap: Rules of Dating A Virgo 1-10

Ever wish you could hand your partner a manual to completely understand you? Well Virgos, today is your lucky day!!

When dating a Virgo...

Rule #1: BE CLEAN!

When dating a Virgo is the most important rule of all! Be CLEAN!!! Virgos hate dirt! These are the people who will notice the dirt under your finger nails and the crust in your eyes and will be easily turned off. They won't embarrass you and tell you why, rather they will delete you out of their life immediately. Always smell good around your Virgo, you will notice how often they compliment you.


Be aggressive, be be aggressive *cheerleader voice*. Virgos are shy butterflies themselves, they need someone to take charge. A Virgo woman will be attracted to the buff man that will protect them and the Virgo male will like the lady bold enough to approach them, but can still let him take charge at times. Aggressiveness is attractive to Virgos for they attract their opposite. But please remember that aggressiveness does not mean stalking. Those are two different things! LOL


It is nothing that annoys a Virgo more than an uneducated person. Virgos have inquisitive minds, therefore they always are learning even after their school days. If you want to impress them speak intelligently and with good grammar.

Rule # 4: BE A GOOD LOVER!

Or at least pretend to be! Virgo can be a tab bit critical, and climbing into bed with one without knowing your stuff will set you up for failure! Remember Virgos pretend to be pure, but don't let the "Virgins" fool you. These are one of the most sexually charged signs out there!


Virgos are attracted to successful, ambitious, and goal-oriented people; much like themselves. They do not like lazy individuals and believe a little hard work goes a long way.


Virgos are relationship people and will not be comfortable being a fling. Virgos keep their hearts guarded until they feel comfortable enough with you. When a Virgo opens their heart for you, they have grown to care and hope you feel the same.


Virgos are attracted to the way you look. Seems superficial but that's the way a Virgo thinks. They pay attention to detail more than the average person, so be sure to have neat and pressed clothes. Virgos are always well dressed and consider their appearance to be as important as their personality. You will rarely see a Virgo undressed, and they expect the same from their partner


When dating a Virgo, you have to be the initiator! Virgos seem to have to all together, but inside they are insecure and shy. A Virgo will never approach a person they are interested in, for fear of rejection. They are too shy to make the first move, but will be comfortable with flirting once they have got to know you.


When dating a Virgo don't take their criticism to the heart! Virgos can be blunt, concise and sometimes a little too honest. But that's one of the reasons many people like them. Remember Virgos only criticize those people they care for. If they do not care about you, they won't waste their opinion on you.

Rule #10: BE PATIENT !

Be Patient. Virgos have a hard time relaxing and trusting others. Once they get to know you, they will be open to flirting and loosing up.

KNOW the rules, and live by them!!
I thought this was a fun read since I'm a Virgo.  Some of it applies.  Most, but I've never been afraid to make the first move when I've liked someone, even though I am extremely shy in certain social situations.  I do like my man to take charge and be aggressive and take initiative.
