As of late- some phone pics

Just some random phone shots of stuff I've been doing/enjoying lately:D

Reading these books

Enjoying this light box from Amazon
 My daughter uses it more than I do!

Our new calico ryukin, John Cena

Kale chips (recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow's book My Father's Daughter)
Ingredients: bunch of kale , olive oil, coarse salt
Use only the kale leaves, not the stems. Toss in with oil and salt and spread in a baking sheet. Pre-heat oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit. Bake kale for about 13 minutes. Voilá!

My daughter doing her vocal exercises with her voice teacher (love her)

Eating out

Really digging this sewing space display in Ikea

New yarn I ordered from the UK

What have you guys been up to?

Oh that light box is such a good idea! Nice that you and your daughter can share and enjoy it too :) Reading is one of my hobbies so I'm loving I can pass on that love for reading to my boys, although it's a shame I'm not as crafty as you to do something like that with them :)

Hope you had a good week and you have a nice weekend ahead! We have family visiting so it will be a busy but fun weekend :)

It's awesome that your daughter is also getting use of that light box! You just reminded me that I haven't made kale chips in forever. You should try adding a little onion powder next time. It gives them such a lift of flavor :) Is Ding Tai Fung affiliated with Din Tai Fung?

Your daughter seems to be enjoying that light box. I had kale chips a few times and liked it a lot. Now you got me craving it so badly. Enjoy your weekend Emmy.
That Ikea sewing space is fabulous :)
First, that lightbox looks so darn cool. And I love that you named your new fish John Cena, lol. I tried kale chips once, but I hated them, lol.

You named your fish John Cena... lol.. love it.
I need one of these Amazon Tracing pads, I know I would find tons of fun projects to create. Hi John Cena :) You are super handsome. I’m all about Kale Chips, these look crispy and delicious. Hello yarn! I really wish I had time to knit

Amazing post! I need to get myself a light box - they are really useful :) Such a pretty fish, haha when you introduce your fish to the people you can say "and his name is JOHN CENA ***play the music***" :D

Lightboxes are cool and it's so awesome that your daughter is taking voice classes Emmy! She has a beautiful voice (from other videos you shared on your blog) and I'm glad you're cultivating her talent. That IKEA workspace is dreamy! Nothing like having a place for everything.
