I had high hopes for this bean soup recipe. Turned out too salty so I had to cut it with way more rice than I intended. If I think it's too salty, then you know it's too salty.
Girls night out / dinner date with N, J and L. I love our little girl get togethers. I especially like it when we go to Gloria's even though my drink of choice is not on the happy hour menu. : (
My favorite thing about the new house: the neighborhood. I love taking the dogs for a walk where you don't have to worry about tons of cars speeding through the neighbor hood or people watching you. (One of the old neighbors was a bit of a peeper out his window. It was creepy since you always felt like you were being watched).
Gummy airplanes. I wasn't allowed to eat them until I could name them. That was a bit of an intense google search and one of the planes (the middle one) I ended up having to be told since I never figured it out.
When you are out of things to take a picture of, checking in on the progress of the plants is always a good shot. Here's the basil coming right along.
Our new cooktop was installed. I have to say I really love it.
Finally got around to celebrating my birthday only three months late. Food was good, company was great.
Dear winter - go away. Seriously. Ice storm on Super Bowl Sunday had us inside and cozied up most of the day. Got out my big girl camera and 100 mm macro for this shot.
I have big plans for the entry so I thought now would be a good time to take a before picture (That and I needed something to shoot). Always by the door, a pair of rain boots. Man do I love rain boots.
Hannah girl. I am so very hateful and made her wear my ear cover and then I attached her favorite lamb toy to her head. You can't see in the picture but Chase was circling her freaking out because she "had" the toy.
This is actually my favorite picture from this set. It's blurry and not the best focus, but I just like it. I took it while on a walk during lunch. Did I mention it was 26 degrees? That is bleeping cold.
The back of the house with our dual decks. Oh yeah and a bit of snow. Good times.
I need a long lens. I need a long lens. I need a long lens. Maybe if I repeat it enough one will show up. That bird right there is a cardinal and it is very pretty and poses for such lovely pictures as long as I am far a way. Must work on the long lens situation.
Manual focus for the win. This duck is actually super tiny and this is the first time that I have ever really captured it!
