Ugh, only one review this week. Hoping to do 2-3 reviews a week, so fingers crossed this week is better!

This week in real life. . .

First off, Happy Mothers Day everyone! I have three little kids, so Mothers Day is always fun seeing all the things they make me at school. I got woken up bright and early to see them and we had a fun morning. I got my Mothers Day/Birthday (my birthday is the 17th) present early: a new Kindle! My old one died a while back and when I read e-books, i’ve been reading them on my phone. So my husband got me a new Paperwhite, which I love. It’s so nice to be able to read on a bigger screen again. Now to find a pretty case. . .

I also wanted to offer condolences to whoever might be hurting on this Mothers Day. I lost my mom over 11 years ago, and every Mothers Day is bittersweet. It never gets any easier, but I’m lucky to have a lot of good memories of her.



I’m on the left, my brother is in the middle.                                 


One of my other hobbies is crocheting and knitting. Right now I’m working on a baby blanket that I kind of made up the pattern for. I’m super slow, so these take me a while, fitting in a little bit in the evenings usually. Hopefully it’s done in a month or so.



Granny squares FTW! 

A few years ago I bought a nice camera, so sometimes I like to fool around with that as well. Spring is one of my favorite times to photograph, since everything is new. My brother got me a really pretty poppy plant the last time he was here, and I love up close photography so I’ve been trying to get a good one. I like the one below I think. How was your week? Do you guys have any cool hobbies? If I had the time (and the money), I’d like to try out everything!
