I know the link takes you to a potential replacement (Digg Reader). I obviously am not endorsing said product as they have not released it for public use yet. But the panic is causing me to check out all possible alternatives...

There really isn't much to it. It's a baked potato with a breadcrumb and butter topping. The fun is in the fanning, and the recipe had a great idea of using wooden chopsticks as a guide to not cut through the potato, and a quick rinse to get rid of some of the starch to help the fanning. Bake potato, add crumb topping and put it in the broiler for a few (mine might have been there for about 30 seconds too long) and the results turned out like this...

Let's catch up.
I really did start a March POTM post. I read this article about a guy who started a creative way of taking pictures of his girlfriend as they travel to different places around the world. I thought it was the coolest thing and wanted to try it out. Now I certainly am not trotting the globe like that guy is, but I've been able to start capturing a few places right in my own backyard. This is my first one in front of Britt's work. Of course, you can follow my Instagram feed and see if I follow through on this better than this blog...
A quick diversion!
I did not take this picture. I was not even there. But I would like to give a shout out to my friend John for capturing this on a school field trip of Hannah's. Of the many awesome things about this picture, I mostly want to share this with you because this really reminds me how old my baby is getting. 13! Oh my....
Ok, by to lauding my own art...
It's not always about fancy artistic pics sometimes. Sometimes, pictures capture life. Boring, everyday life, but life that you will think back on fondly one day when it's over. Like three very loud kids getting ready for bed in the bathroom. Pretty sure I will miss this one day.... pretty sure.
Mother's Day for May! I like this one because I realized after taking this that I don't have a lot of pictures with my mom. Will have to remedy that in the future. And it shows how much taller I am than my mom and sister! Ha!
Three shots, three months. Life goes on around here...

So sad. I've been such a faithful user of GReader, and I assume the 3 of the 4 of you reading this is in GReader right now. Not the most elegant, especially by today's standards, but it did its job of helping me keep up with my favorite sites. Now the search for a replacement begins.. and to figure out how to export my carefully curated Reader subscriptions....

This is Beckett. We have been looking for a possible dog and it's a somewhat stressful ordeal because you want the perfect pet who will fit in with the family. So of course, with that magical circumstance, Brittany walked into the shelter right when Beckett was being surrendered at the front desk. Bonds were made right away and the next day, we brought her home.
She has adapted nicely so far, and is quite a cuddler (unlike the kitten of the house). Happy to sit by someone's feet while also ready to run around and chase a ball. We think she will keep us all busy (in a good way) for the foreseeable future.

I had so much fun rimmaging through old pictures in my previous posts that I decided that I want to do this every month!
Naturally I didn't have a big month in picture taking. Perhaps it was a little bit of recovery time from a lot of snapping over the holidays. There is such a thing a photography fatigue, right? Good thing I had my phone with me that I was still a steady contributor to Instagram.
This one is not from the phone though. This is a special one as I had been waiting just forever to see the shiny new World Series trophy since they won it back in October. The trophy tour was announced and not only was there a stop in Richmond, but BOTH trophies would be on display. The only problem was that it was to be on a Monday afternoon. However would I, with a clear conscience, skip out on work for this? Well it just so happen (and showing the amount of sacrifice that I was willing to make) that I needed to have a root canal done and the appointment was the same morning! As you can see, I survived it fine (or the drugs were awesome). Some split duties of waiting in line early and picking up kids from work and here we are, surrounded by shinies.

A little more softball for the PFOM. As it gets closer to winter, it means shorter days, and EARLY wake up calls. The lights are on because this picture was taken before the sun came UP! Sigh....
