A post full of random thoughts and pictures of me :)
*For the past few weeks I have been getting HORRIBLE headaches every afternoon. This makes me cranky and irritable and not very patient with my kids. Turns out... I need glasses! Hopefully they come in this week. I'm not excited about wearing glasses, but pretty desperate not to have headaches anymore. I will hopefully only need to wear them for reading, computer work, and night driving.
*I've really been digging R&B lately. I especially love to listen to it while I cook. I dance to it. It makes me happy.
*I finally got Lightroom. Now I need to learn how to use it. Hopefully it will streamline my workflow.
*I've done a lot of boudior shoots this month... and I also had one done myself. Ladies, if you've yet to do this... it's fun, and I've never felt so beautiful. I highly recommend it :)
*I made coconut ice cream yesterday for dessert... it was quite delicious and something I will definitely make again.
*I realized this week that cake decorating is NOT my thing. I purchased my first little cake decorating tools a few months ago from Michaels. I decided to try to make some pretty cupcakes for the Valentine's party I had for the mom's group that I'm in charge of at my church. This was the first and last time I will attempt cake decorating. My husband lovingly told me that perhaps this was one hobby I should stay away from :) I have neither the patience nor talent to make pretty cupcakes. The mess I created combined with my frustration over it all.... well.... let's just say it wasn't pretty. I will happily leave the cake decorating to my dear friend Jolene, who makes works of art out of sugar. I will gladly stick to photography, hack sewing, and crafting :)
*Since marrying Matt nearly 9 years ago, I almost always make us a yummy breakfast on Saturdays. Pancakes from scratch, Belgian waffles, muffins, omelets, ... and lately I've added Dutch Baby's to the rotation. No, I am not referring to a gestating baby in my belly, but rather a delicious breakfast treat that is super easy to throw together. Here is the recipe I use.... and we put REAL maple syrup on top. Super yummy, easy, and everyone enjoys it.
*At least one member of our family has been sick for the past month. I'm looking forward to having everyone healthy at the same time again.
*I recently joined a gym near my house and am canceling my LA Fitness membership. Sadly, I rarely make it to the gym since having Alayna because... well... just because I have a whole lot of excuses. Now I will be able to work out with my dear friend Faith, and not have to drive very far to do it. I am SO ready to get back to the gym and get back into shape. I feel like this is the most out of shape I've ever been.
