The Story of taking pictures of small children...and some spring colours.

So, I had a little photo shoot with the girls to show off some spring colors. I've realize with those two I might, emphasis MIGHT,  get 1 good shot in 20...

Ok...one looking, this is good

And we lost them...

Again...we got one...

Oh dear, this is just going from bad to worse!

Bingo! I love it when that happens....
(now if only the dumb dog wasn't in the background...I'll have to photoshopt that one)

So I had a lot of pink yarn around, and none of my favourite which is brown so I made a couple of these for spring:

Ahh spring, I love you,

Hair Cut!

When I was pregnant my hair was really long and it was great because I didn't feel like doing it. Then I had a baby, and I still didn't feel like doing it, plus it was almost long enough to donate. Then it all started fall out because that is one of the many joys of being post partum. So I finally cut it. 2, 12 inch pony's for Angel Hair for Kids. I'm all over storyboard templates lately so here's a little before and after:
Excuse the self photography, my husband has a knack for making me look really awful in pictures. So far I'm loving it!

Reinventing Breakfast...

I will admit, since high school I've been a terrible breakfast eater. The only time I eat breakfast is after a night shift, before I go to bed...so does that REALLY count???

I decide that a good granola I could do and I found this recipe for Dark Chocolate Granola. I used Coconut oil instead of Canola oil and left out the coconut because I didn't have any and don't like it.

It was so good! I've had probably 3 bowls a day and now I have to make more. It satisfy's my craving for chocolate and it's dark so I don't feel too bad. I figure if I'm going to eat the chocolate anyway I may as well get some healthy stuff in along with it!

Along with my breakfast theme I thought I would share my newest purchase from Etsy because I LOVE it! I've been in the market for a new coffee cup for awhile...My plastic one from starbucks has had a broken handle since about a week after I bought it 2 a couple years ago....I recently also discovered it was growing mold in the lining....Eww! I really like pottery but hadn't seen any that would work as good travel mugs. (I do have to go back to my real job soon which involves night shifts and transporting coffee in my car) Then I saw this:

I'm enjoying my first cup of tea and it's perfect! (especially the "can wash in dishwasher" bit....) now I might have to go have some granola for dinner with it!
