Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! It’s Friday, should we all shout HURRAY! I think so! Who doesn’t love Friday? With Friday comes along the fabulous ‘Love the little things of 2014″ linky from my lovely friend Butwhymummywhy. Come join the party!
~ week 7 ~
I have been reading Mamarazzi, in my attempt to learn photography. Some days I think I am getting the hang of it, and other days I want to turn my camera back to AUTO. The best thing about this book, which focuses on taking pictures of children, is that she puts each setting underneath each photo. So you always know what her camera was set to for that particular shot. I find this very helpful. Here is one of my test shots, what do you think?
I have started to watch Nashville, from the very beginning. I am always a season or two behind before someone highly recommends a new show to me. So I am desperately trying to catch up before the Season 2 comes out! I have heard great things about it. I fear I might need to lose a few nights sleep to catch up though.
I am loving Miranda Lambert’s new song, Mama’s Broken Heart, the lyrics and the video are awesome. It’s upbeat and hilariously true!
I had the opportunity to team up with Matcha Organic Green Tea which you not only can drink, but you can put it in just about anything. Bake with it, put it in tea, coffee and even cocktails. I made these delicious cupcakes with it. Matcha helps you burn 40% more calories than regular green tea, put it in cupcakes and they might just balance out! We hope! 😉
The weather has been shocking, so I have been wearing layers upon layers to try and keep warm. My Joules wellies from last week haven’t been off my feet, and my snood from my birthday has been keeping my neck warm. I had to go one step further and purchase stroller gloves. The kind of mitts that keep that freezing wind off your knuckles when you are pushing the stroller around for an afternoon walk. I bought a pair of fuzzy, black, NorthFace mitts from Cheshire Oaks, which of course were a bargain.
I got the chance to finally hang out with a close friend and have a much deserved coffee together. It was nice to catch up and enjoy our chat. Not to mention drinking hot coffee is always a novelty when you have small children. I cherish my mini coffee breaks with friends, doesn’t happen often but when it does, those moments are golden for me.
