Food Inc. & Lens Love

{Wowsers}
My eyes have been officially opened.  Ever wonder where the food you buy really comes from?  Ever heard of a GMO?  I'm not a health guru, but like most people I try my best to eat healthy and feed my family food that is suppose to be good for them.


I'll never look at meat or the food I buy the same again.  "Food Inc." is the name of the documentary.  I streamed it through Netflix {which we love}. 

Here's a little sneak peak...



{Lens Happy}
And on a completely different subject...I got a new lense! {Thanks for the applause!}  Its not anything fancy, just another 18-55mm but this one has VR which I'm excited about!  {VR=Vibration Reduction, you know, camera shaking}

I am happy. 

I never realized just how much I use my camera or how theraputic it is for me to take pictures.    Isn't it so great to just stop what you are doing and take a minute or two to cherish a moment?   Those few minutes I spend with my camera in hand keep me on my toes, keep me sane, and I love it.


{Bakin' and Stuff}
Winter is a great time to spend in the kitchen.  And with Bob gone pretty much M-F with school and work, the boys and I have been baking up a storm!

Not much compares to a piece of nice, warm whole wheat bread straight out of the oven with Cinnamon Honey Butter spread on top.  Its up there with the scone and honey butter at Chuck-O-Ramas.

Here's the CHB recipe I used...and I love it!

Cinnamon Honey Butter

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon

Beat until light and fluffy.  Super yummy.

And I have the best helpers...well, helpers with the best intentions...

{Pizza Box Report}
Kindergarten rocks. Reindeers are so much cooler than I ever knew.  Do you remember your first animal research report?  So fun.

{Next to Baking}
And the next best thing to do inside during the winter is sew!  Ethan and I have been busy.  I sew, he stuffs.

And then we play...

How about those legs? ;)


Now, how about these?  I'm working on a fun new tutorial as we speak! 
Like your little sneak peek?:)

If you liked that movie go for "In Defense of Food" and the "Omnivor's Dilemma"!
