Friday Favorites: March 2

I missed sharing my favorites with you last week because I was knee deep in the amazing ANWA writing conference.  Not only did I learn so much, I also met some awesome women.  I came home just in time to help my kids with a couple of big projects due this week – those projects didn’t make this week’s favorites, although I enjoyed seeing the end results.  Here’s what did make the list:

  • Did I mention ANWA?  It was really cool, you should go next year!
  • The Blue and Gold Banquet had a couple of hiccups, but we rolled with the punches and it turned out well.  My favorite part was the Nutella cupcake I savored after I was done being silly in front of the Cub Scouts and their families.

Even though my week was crazy, I still had time to find new favorite posts!

Share your favorites of the day!

Friday Favorites: October 21

This has been a week of catch-up, at least half a week of catch up.  With fall break over, I enjoy a lazy day or two to enjoy a quiet house again.  But not too much, there was still plenty going on this week and here are some of my favorites.

  • Book Club.  We got together and discussed The Host for a bit, and then we just talked and enjoyed pumpkin bread.
  • More books.  I started reading The Help for our next book club meeting.  I love the first paragraph!  A friend also let me borrow Lemon Tart.  It’s the first in the series of culinary cozies. Don’t forget to enter to win an iPad in celebration of the latest book in the series, Pumpkin Roll.
  • Relief Society.  We had an activity with treats and games.  I took Caramel Apple Cider Cookies that I found on Pinterest.  I also have the most determined booty, since I won musical chairs.  I also learned a fun new game called “Do You Love your Neighbor?”  It’s another scramble to get a chair game.  Hopefully those competitive games helped burn off all the cookies I ate.
  • The Glitter Academy.  Tonight’s the night I’ve been looking forward to with crafts, ice cream and the chance to be social!  I’m hoping to get a bunch of scrapbooking done tonight!

When I look at my week like that, it’s been an awesome week.  Here’s some other awesome things I found in the blogosphere.

  • Celebrations at Home has a cute, fun Halloween party (I don’t really like scary, gory Halloween).
  • Maybe you could feature these Oreo Candy Bars from In Katrina’s Kitchen.
  • If your kids are going trick or treating, these bags from Your Homebased Mom are adorable.  My kids would want bigger bags, like pillow cases with handles.
  • Not A Supermom shares her solution for mismatched socks.  It just might work…
  • I’m over at Arizona Mama sharing our Family Photo Challenge.  Remember there’s still time to vote!

Photography Club Challenge: Perspective Line

Our photography club met again, since it was Labor Day and the kids had the day off from school. Before I talk about our lesson and challenge, I’ll share the winners from our last challenge.  Yep, there was a tie and here are the winners.

Deer Wild

Food Please

First we pulled out my old college photography text book and discussed lenses, the long and the short of it.  Actually the best times to use long and short lenses.  Then we talked for a few minutes on perspective line, since that was the theme of this time’s challenge.  Once again, I am impressed by how differently we all see the same topic!  Without further ado, here are the submissions for this challenge.

A Measure of Strategem
