background noise: kids chomping on carrots and beckham starring as spidey in his kideo video!
okay, i am going to be super honest right now, and i am going to make up a word. i think it's fun to make up words... up until i start believing it's a real word and use it to someone who doesn't know i do this. often times they challenge my word and look at me like i'm off my rocker.
of course, i act all shocked--which i totally am because i've been using this mystery word so long that i start believing it is indeed in the webster's dictionary. i'm all, 'what?!!!, of course it's word!' jeeze, some people;)
i'm a wanter. actually, this word could actually be a word. i'll have to look. anyway, i am the kind of girl who constantly wants something. like. it. never. ends. i certainly don't go out and buy whatever my little heart desires...
for one, i am without my own little money tree in the front yard and two,...i truly see the joy in finding/needing a good deal. with that said, every once in awhile i think it's okay to ask for a big ticket item (mother's day...hint, bdays, christmas!) so last year i started dropping hints about these babies!
yes, they are fab. i'm pretty sure they take like a month to make...by hand. i love them and have been foaming at the mouth to get my hands on a pair. red, vintage green, even the black...don't care.
i don't have them yet, but i did find these for a fraction of the cost.
they had me at green polk-a-dots...lemon & limes...??!!! i would grab a pair and wear them with EVERYTHING for the next month, but that's just me:) and the way i see it...i just saved $100!!!!
liberty of london rocks too...just sayin.'
okay, on to the spring mini-shoots...
they were so much fun. and funny, but i'll get to that in a minute.
right after the above photo was snapped...i felt a stinging sensation traveling up my legs. when i mentioned this to those around me...my husband said, "make sure you didn't sit on an ant hill." well, needless to say, and to my horror i turned to view the moving hump of dirt. the same dirt my bottom just called home for a minute or two.
well...i have the pictures to prove this, but i'm not showing. i decided to start screaming (in front of the family i was just shooting) and proceeded to rip my yoga pants off, you read it correctly, and jump up and down while people started wiping ants off of my bare bottom.
note, my own husband, instead of helping...grabbed my camera and started snapping away!
i can only laugh...'cause let's face it, seeing my bare bottom had to be pretty funny!
leslie, thanks for helping a sister out:)
to see the rest of the spring shoot, please head over to my photography blog...
www.heididarwish.blogspot.com this link doesn't seem to be working, in that case just type the url out!
after i downloaded these photos, i found a few that i don't remember taking...
hmmm. i guess that means that somebody, and i won't say who, was using my camera (HUGE no-no) without my permission. busted.
loving her budding passion...
and sito and gido for coming to visit us last weekend!
other good stuff...
*including a tin of eggs in my fridge that makes me think i raise chickens for a living and have a daughter named fern.
*a craft book we can't keep our hands off of. this week: we planted poppy's in an empty egg!
* beckham's smashed up face from falling off of a parking block. broke my heart, but he makes road rash look so cute.
*from a friend: homemade strawberry jam i can't keep away from.
*tulips in the spring. my fave flower and my vase stays current with fresh ones each and every week this time of year!
*daddy won a big golf tournament and we are so proud of him. he is the best!
*nella beans's dedication tonight on the beach. can't wait!
*coffee downtown with the girls...and beckham. real and true and just what we all needed to start the week off right!
everyone seemed to like the recipe last week, so here is another, although i only have this one photo and it's not of the finished product.
my healthy version of a salmon patty.
disclaimer:i'm not sure if this is actually healthy or low in carbs...but i pretend it has to be because of less breadcrumbs. i have been eating these whenever i get hungry and i find them satisfying. they are sooooo good!
2 cans of premium canned salmon
little bit of chopped red onion
little bit of chopped green pepper
optional: fresh baby spinach
2 tablespoons or less of pregresso italian breadcrumbs
teaspoon cayenne pepper
tad of olive oil for pan
mix it all up, for into med sized balls, flatten, cook in pan over low heat until sides are brown.
i eat 'em cold right out the fridge, but maybe that is gross. not sure ;0
