Week Forty Six


Six weeks left - shits getting real! I am slowly - I mean SLOWLY getting ready for Christmas. Usually the house is already decorated, but to be honest - I've been preoccupied. I'm hoping to have most of it up by Sunday... Linking up as always with some awesome ladies.  Sarah over at Nurse Love Farmer, Mindi from Simply Stavish and Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming. There is variety this week. Played around with the camera a bit, played around with some lighting gear; I really have a lot to learn with my Speedlight! Jimbo moved up a belt - Grey was into EVERYTHING, and let me just say; I am so effing thankful that today is Friday!

Tasty Tuesday: The London Fog


This has been done, over & over, I know that - but I just had to do a post. I am a tea lover. Straight up, I love tea. I collect tea cups, and tea pots - and I have a nice little collection of loose teas. I would drink tea all day, everyday if I could - but I don't. All in moderation. Right? I picked up a bottle of vanilla syrup the other day (because I don't know how to make my own.. yet) and I instantly wanted to make a London Fog. It has to be one of my favorite hot drinks. I have never made one at home before, but I knew that I had everything I needed. I'm a huge fan of David's Tea, so I thought I would try my hand at a Creamy London Fog - made with Cream of Earl Grey tea from David's Tea. There are three ingredients - well four if you count your water - and a couple of tools you will need. You will need: Boiling water Earl Grey tea bag vanilla syrup whole or 2% milk A milk steamer or a frother will be needed as well.   Tasty Tuesday: The … [Continue reading]

Family Game Night: Monopoly Jr.


I received the following product from Influenster free of charge for review purposes. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I will be the first to admit that in my family, we could never, ever finish a game of Monopoly. Even when we played Monopoly Jr. We came close, but it never ended well. Ever! I was very excited however when I found out that we would be receiving a Monopoly Jr. game board from Influenster to review. James is at that age where we wants to play board games, and Chris and I are more than happy to play! James was so excited to play. We had an early dinner, and after that was all cleaned up we had our family #gamenight. As soon as the boys saw the little characters, they both picked who they wanted to be. James will forever be the boat, and Graham will scream in your face that he is the cat. Chris is the car and I... well, I'm the dog. Sweet. I never realized that rolling dice was difficult, but Graham had a hard time understanding how to roll a dice, James … [Continue reading]

Week Forty Five _ Catch the Moment 365


The year is creeping closer and closer to the end. I've been looking back at the start of the year and have to say, I have learned so much this past year. Not just about my camera, and photography itself - but a lot as a mother and a wife. Week forty five was an exciting one. I got some baking in, a photo shoot with one of my oldest friends, and we got to spend some quality time as a family. Linking up as always with Sarah from Nurse Loves Farmer, Mindi from Simply Stavish and Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming. Thanks for stopping by to check out week forty five of Catch the Moment 365.   311 | 365 My Light   312 | 365 Butter Tarts   313 | 365 Refelction   314 | 365 My Reality   315 | 365 Tree Climbing 316 | 365 Next Door   317 | 365     … [Continue reading]
