this and that

::  Recently I received a comment that mentioned she was unable to pin any images from my blog.  I'd noticed that nothing had been pinned lately, and a lot of the pins that were previously on pinterest had disappeared, but didn't do anything about it of course.  Well after the reader comment I finally decided to look into it.  Thanks to this post by the Unskinny Boppy I confirmed that the issue was with Flickr, and was able to change some settings around to make it possible to pin images from my blog.  I'm still keeping most family pictures and pictures of Ryann set to private, simply because there is no need for those images to be pinned.  But party images, recipes and room images should be available to be pinned.  Not that there is a ton of content on my blog that someone would want to pin, but just in case!

::  Tomorrow is the last 'day in the life' post I have scheduled to run.  If you are interested in being a part of the series please leave your blog name, blog address and e-mail address in the comments section of this post and I will set up a new schedule.  If there is a month or week or something that would be really bad timing for you please leave that info too so I can do my best to make a schedule that works for everyone.  Thanks so much to all the mamas who have participated in the series over the last two years.  I know there are tons of ladies out there who love reading the posts!

::  I pretty much hate winter.  I don't like snow.  I don't like being cold.  Winter can just go away.

::  I really want to get my craft on, and I'm sure there is something I want to make for the nursery, but I just can't decide what to do.  I'm thinking maybe something like this or this, or maybe this. I wish I wasn't so indecisive about what I wanted on the walls and such.  And I seriously can't wait for this stupid bathroom business to be over with (which should be soon, so I shouldn't complain...) so that I can start really putting the nursery together and finishing up my cleaning and organizing and such.  My mom brought me the rug and the crib skirt on Thursday, and my crib sheets and changing pad covers came in the mail over the weekend.  Just need to get some furniture painted, and uh, get the toilet and such out of there and we will be in business.  I can't wait!

::  This is her thinking face.  No joke.  When she has to ponder something that little finger goes to her mouth and it is too freaking cute.

::  And in regards to pictures of my kiddo?  I have been TERRIBLE about picking up my camera, big or iphone.  The whole photo a day project really wore me out, but I know I need to make more opportunities to take photos.  And find the art of photography again.  Rather than just snapshots.  I want beautiful photos, and I'm going to have to work for them!

That is about all I can ramble about right now.  No, you can never get those minutes of your life back.  Sorry :o).
