Thursday Things & LinkUp
Here are this week’s Thursday Things
1. I was nominated to The Kitchn’s Best Food Photography on a Blog list.
I only have a couple votes, but hey, I’ll take them. Better than none.
If you want to vote for me, I’d love it. If you want to vote for other people, they’d love it. You can sign in with your Facebook or Twitter name to register and voting is anonymous. Takes about 1.18 seconds to do.
Voting ends on March 2 (tomorrow) so do your voting now. There’s a million super talented photographers, professional photographers, and fabulous bloggers on the list, so to even make the list and be nominated, I was honored.
2. International Delight York Peppermint Pattie Creamer has been making it’s way into my coffee and I really like it.
I like Peppermint Coffee-Mate better, but I thought it was seasonal, until I just realized it just became a year-round offering. I think the Coffee-Mate is a little smoother; more pepperminty without being overkill, slightly less sweet, and not quite as thick.
However, so far I’ve only been able to find it at Target and not at my regular grocery store. I’ve made a few Target runs recently.
3. After I saw Jessica post about Girl Scout Cookie lip balm, I had to have it.
I ordered it here. Thin Mints and Samoas on my lips. So wrong, but so right. (Thin Mint-ish brownies have in my belly, see #8 below)
4. I also ordered these because I never met a Starburst that I didn’t love, even if it means applying Starburst lip balm. Beware, you may be tempted to
chew lick your lips quite a bit.
Very interesting discussion and many of us love our Pinterest, but not everyone loves it.
6. The winners of the Green Smoothie eBook Giveaway are:
I love Lightroom and playing around with and tweaking images with different tones, washes, and colors and could go on a preset-buying bonanza. If you told this to me ten years ago, or even a few years ago, that I’d want to spend money on presets, I would have laughed in your Beauty Collection face.
8. If you would have told me a few years ago that I’d be posting St. Patrick’s Day treats ahead of the holiday, or that I even paid attention to food “holidays”, I would have laughed in your face.
That is, until you fed me a Triple Layer Fudgy Mint Oreo Brownie. Then I would have stopped laughing so I could concentrate on chewing. Reminiscent of a Thin Mint meets a brownie. We’re back to the Girl Scouts (item 3 above).
9.Scott and I used to run at least two, and somethings three or four, races per month many years ago (usually 5 & 10k’s, sometimes half marathons). They are fond, cherished, and amazing memories we have of our early days together when we had nothing but time on our hands to just…run.
Not to mention, when you don’t have a child and are ten years younger, getting up at the crack of dawn to run a race, and pay race entry fees x2 people, racing doesn’t seem as daunting.
I’d love to run in the Hot Chocolate Racing Series with Scott, but we don’t have anyone to watch Skylar from oh about, 5:30-8am on a Sunday morning. Surprise, surprise that sitters are in short supply on Sunday mornings at that hour.
Post races are usually orange slices and bananas and water. This one includes post-race chocolate fondue. I wish it didn’t start at 6:45am. However, chocolate may be worth getting up for.
10. Tip: Buy some of these.
