It’s Friday. This week went by incredibly slow, not that I’m complaining since life has been on overdrive the last few months. Just wish that vacation weeks would go that slow (and not work, right?). This weekend (and the next several) is packed with all kinds of good stuff. Tonight we’re having dinner with family, tomorrow I’m shopping with my friend Jessica then headed to a schmancy dinner and Nuggets game downtown. Then Sunday, we’re having lunch with my Dad and getting all caught up on the to-do’s around the house!
There is a *big-ish* snowstorm predicted to start tonight… with 8-14″ that may or may not fall. It is Colorado after all, you can’t be certain about any kind of weather. I’ll also be spending time trying to get ready for my sister’s baby shower next weekend (I can’t believe it’s already here) and trying not to get too amped up for Blissdom (just yet).
Here are a few of my favorites from this week:
I don’t take many photos of myself, probably a mix between my fear of being vain and not actually remembering to turn the camera around when I’m taking photos of the dogs or something else adorable. Design Mom posed the question on selfies – when is it too much and when is it too little, when it comes to taking photos of yourself.
This post on living life more simply really struck home for me. Her way with words is really moving and, I think, that with all the “connectedness” and gadgets we have in our lives, it’s even more true.
I have all these Photoshop aspirations and thought this tutorial on “mattifying” your images was really great. I’ve always admired her posts and they way all her photos turn out. Take a look.
Our master bedroom closet isn’t exactly a girl’s dream. It has a decent amount of space, but not enough. Know what I mean? These closet door shelves would be amazing… I’ll either have to learn to use a saw or talk Christian into building it for me.
I like meat (bacon and hamburgers, I’m looking at you), but I have a hard time when I’m not real sure on the quality of said meat. Hence, I’ve been moving toward eating a few more “meat-free” meals a week and this recipe for Sweet and Sour Tempeh with Pinneapple looks right up my alley. Maybe I’ll add it to the menu for next week.
With, now, less than 2-weeks until Blissdom, I’ve been reading anything and everything I can – including printing out the track/agenda and taking multi-colored highlighters to them. This is my favorite breakdown of what’s happening at the conference, in case you’re curious.
This post on growing your blog was a good read. This may or may not have something to do with the everything blog reading obsession I’ve been nurturing. If you’re interested in moving your blog forward, its worth a few moments.
