I Heart Faces | anything but a face!

I haven’t followed the I Heart Faces themes for a few weeks, but I noticed tonight on facebook that this week’s challenge was “Anything But A Face!”  Interesting!  I decided to use a picture I took of little Zachary’s toes in the moss/dirt of his backyard.  So sad that these toes won’t be little for long!  Be sure to check out more “Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes…Anything But a Face!” entries here:

A little late in posting, but we are home now, and WPPI was fabulous!  This week’s project 52 image is of the hubs in the Mojave Desert.  Red Rock Canyon was absolutely stunning.  I blew out the background to get the exposure where I wanted it on his glasses.

We LOVED Red Rock Canyon too! We have some great memories of four wheelin’ with friends from when we lived in Cali. So glad you guys had a great time! Cool pic with the reflection in the glasses…you’re SO creative!

Jodi, it’s amazing! The thought would never have even crossed my mind to catch the reflection in sunglasses! Amazing!

WPPI, here we come!  We are packed & ready to go to the WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) Convention & Trade Show in Vegas!  I did not purchase one new item of clothing before this trip, and I have conflicting feelings of being proud of myself and completely itching to shop! :)  But, I’ve saved my money and itching for the show…there are so many things on my photography list!

Sayonara, for now.

Recipe Swap Sign-Up | Appetizers & Desserts

You are cordially invited to a recipe swap!  Woot, woot!

The first one was so much fun with twelve of us sharing a recipe we make every week.  For those of you who missed it, you can view those recipes here.

And now, with the theme of “APPETIZERS & DESSERTS“, you don’t want to miss this one!  Yum!

WHAT | A taste-testing themed food party held once a month where everyone brings their best or favorite recipe that pertains to that theme

WHY | To create an arsenal of go-to recipes for our families, based on personal taste…you know, kind of like going to Costco or Sam’s Saturday morning and trying before you buy, you get to taste it before you make it.

WHO | You!

WHERE | Our house, Franklin, North Carolina

WHEN | Tuesday, March 1st at 6pm.  See the event in facebook and invite a friend here.

THIS PARTY’S THEME | “APPETIZERS & DESSERTS” (You pick which one you bring…an appetizer OR dessert.)

ADDITIONAL DETAILS | Please fill out the form below if you plan to attend. (Oops! You missed it!  Be sure to watch the blog for updates on the next one.)  I will take pictures of each dish that is brought and post them after the party for easy reference.  Also, be sure to take along some containers to take home leftovers for the rest of the family to try!

DON’T LIVE CLOSE ENOUGH? We’ll miss you!  Catch the recipes & photos here after the party, or host your own party and be sure to let us know how it goes!

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below, and be sure to invite your friends!

ok, I sent in my recipe… I might make an appetizer too, is that ok? I’m still not 100% sure I can make it… but Scott says he *thinks* it will work out :)

Jodi - February 27, 2011 - 10:38 pm

Ooooh, looks yummy! And, yes ma’am! You can bring whatever you wish, you-over-achiever-you. :) Hope it works out & we’ll see you Tuesday!

Sarah - February 28, 2011 - 7:47 pm

I submitted recipe #2. Don’t be too impressed, it’s pretty much the simplest appetizer possible. :) Thought we might need some salty to balance out all the sweet :)

Jess - February 28, 2011 - 8:20 pm

This is my favorite and best dessert but I haven’t confirmed that the grocery store will have the cookies so this may not be what I bring tomorrow! I will keep you posted!

Jodi - February 28, 2011 - 8:29 pm

Oh my goodness, ladies, you can’t see all the recipes that have come in, but let me just say, IT’S GONNA BE TASTY! :) Hope to see you tomorrow!

Jess - February 28, 2011 - 10:16 pm

Sorry no bastogne cookies at the store so I am making fruit pizza! hope that’s ok! I will submit that recipe now!

Jodi - February 28, 2011 - 10:29 pm

Good ol’ Franklin. :) Fruit Pizza sounds yummy though! Thanks Jess…see you tomorrow!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Wishing you…

Foto Friday 6/52 | Mommy’s Big Helper

While Reese used to be scared of the vacuum, she has now come to embrace it.  Literally!  As soon as she sees me haul it out, she scampers over and climbs aboard the canister.  She’s quite proud of the fact that she can get on by herself, and she loves to go for a ride when Mommy cleans…my big helper.
