Through the Lens Thursday: Caffeine

What’s that you say?

GRETA. It’s Friday, not Thursday. You post ONCE a week, and you can’t even post on the right day? All you’ve done in MONTHS is the photo project and you can’t even be bothered to do that on time?! WHAT. IS. UP.

I’ll tell you what’s up. My week started with the oldest and I getting a stomach bug and being stuck in bed all day Sunday. You know what happens next, right? The rest of the kids go down. Does work slow down? Nope. Is it a week when your husband gets to not travel? NOPE. Is there a bed that was safe from middle of the night puking? One or two. Out of five.

So yes, it’s Friday. I’m late. BUT I’M HERE.

Here’s my caffeine….a Cinnamon Dolce Latte with Fuel. Helping me welcome the end of this godforsaken week.

Through the Lens Thursday: Yellow

There’s a lot of yellow in our yard, so I took my camera out to find it. Look mom, no training wheels!

Through the Lens Thursday: Baked

I’m not much of a baker. I don’t have a beautiful baked good photo to share. But I did realize that I haven’t yet shared my New York photos. (Geeeez. Busy, much?) So, here is the Brooklyn Bridge, baked in the sun. Through The Lens Thursday is a self-improvement photography project that Alison of Writing,Continue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: Box

It’s been a crazy busy week (in a good way!) and I almost forgot what day it was (for the second week in a row. Ahem.) On Sunday, we celebrated my grandpa’s 90th birthday and my grandparents’ 63rd wedding anniversary in the community room after their church service. My uncle, who plays the banjo (IContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: In My Cup

So, maybe this should be called “On my plate” because I have a lot. Instead, this is a series of pictures, to illustrate that, using cups? Or something. In My Cup I finally unpacked from my New York trip. We got these fabulous reusable cups from Cabaret, and the adorable miniature condiments from our roomContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: Frown

I know it’s not Thursday anymore. I got home yesterday from New York City (which was AMAZING) after a very long, very screwed up flight situation (long story). I have so many pictures to share later, but I wanted to go ahead and share one for this week now so I can deal with theContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: Red

As you read this, I’ll be close to leaving for or landing in NYC with my mom and meeting up with my uncle for a special spring break trip. Yay!! I’ve never been, but we intend to fill our time with Broadway shows, lots of food and walking, and whatever else we find to do.Continue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: Cute

I told myself that I would not, under any circumstances, post a bunch of pictures of my dog again. I did that already (a few times). It doesn’t matter how cute she is, I would. not. do. it. So I had to figure something else out. My youngest is going to be four in aContinue Reading

The Unraveling of Mercy Louis (A Book Review)

You guys know I’ve been reading a ton lately, gobbling up all of the recommended books my library could give me, and I was intrigued by the chance to read and review a book being released this March. The Unraveling of Mercy Louis is about Mercy, a small town basketball star, Illa, the tiny, invisibleContinue Reading

It’s Mango Time Featuring Cinco De Mango Quesadillas

I love mango. LOVE. IT. It’s the only fruit that five out of the six members of my family will eat. One of my favorite snacks is a bowl of frozen blueberries and mango chunks with just a little dollop of whipped cream or Greek yogurt on top. It’s delicious, and simple, and filling, andContinue Reading
