I spelled "dinomite" this way on purpose. I am dedicating my post and photo of the day to dinosaurs!
Let me explain why...
For those of you who don't know my husband Justin...
He is REALLY into dinosaurs!
When we decided to have children, he wants to name the first boy
Thomas Rex Chapman
Seriously! This is not a joke.
My husbands name is actually Thomas Justin Chapman.
They have a family tradition where all the male children are named Thomas.
There are only three of them.
Now back to the dinosaurs
Every one in a while when I am out and about, I may buy my husband something dinosaur related. A few months ago, we took a trip to Marshalls. I spotted a dinosaur cupcake set and dino cookie cutters.
Of course I had to get both!
I finally put the cookie cutters to use today. I wanted to practice my cookie decorating skills, so I decided to make sugar cookies. This was the perfect chance for me to finally use my dino cutters.
I was way too excited!
Since I had no plans to leave the house today, I decided to turn my cookies project into a photo shoot. I have two photos that I really like.
I need to share Friday's photo of the day with you.

I decided to do a self-portrait yesterday because I wanted to play with my new shutter release. The photos weren't great, but I liked this one. I used MCP's sharpening mini fusion. It really made my eyes nice and sharp. I also used a Photoshop action, but unfortunately I can't remember the name. The Photoshop action really did wonders for this photo. The lighting in the original picture was terrible probably because I used artificial lighting from a desk lamp. You can't really tell in the edit, but I used a start whit door for my background.
As for the dinosaurs...

Here is my photo of the day runner-up
I haven't decorated them yet. I think I will save that for tomorrow. I had a couple of drinks during dinner. I am sure that DWI (drinking while icing) is a horrible idea.
