Weekend Report

Posted Nov 19 2011 8:07pm

I hope your weekend has been going well so far.  Mine has but I can’t believe Saturday is almost over.  Time flies!

Here’s my weekend report thus far:

I baked.  I didn’t use these exact ingredients but very similar.

What I made is a spin-off on Pumpkin Peant Butter Oatmeal Bars (Vegan, GF) but without the pumpkin.

Sooner or later I’ll get the new recipe posted.

And I photographed it.  One of my favorite things after the recipe has been developed, the food is baked, made, cooled, sliced, staged, composed, and ready to go is to start taking pictures of it.

Then comes editing.  A love-hate relationship.  Love the way the final images look.  Hate the time it takes.

I edit using Lightroom 3 and highly recommend it.  If you’re inclined to shoot in RAW like I do and therefore have to post-process your images or you are starting to edit and touch up your images a bit, I love LR3 and suggest it to everyone.

I also went to a camera store and looked at camera bags for our trip .

I didn’t buy anything at the store but did buy something online.   If it works, I’ll post about the details but I am not sure the size and orientation of the bag will fit my camera + Macbook combo, but I am hopeful.

Thursday the Apple store was a bust out , the camera store today was a bust, so hopefully the online order will do the trick.  These are the situations where although online ordering is great , being able to see something in-person and try it out in-person is worth it’s weight in gold.

A White Chocolate Blondie with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting would be worth it’s weight in gold right about now, too.

“I love Wasa crackers! I usually get the whole grain kinda and spread peanut butter and honey on top!”

Congrats, Alyssa !


1. What’s been the highlight of your weekend so far?

2. Do you have any travel bags you love?  For your computer or camera?  Or a dob kit/health & beauty products bag?  Purses you love either for traveling or every day?

I bought this dob kit about a year ago and I like it but actually have just been using Ziplock baggies as my travel “kit”.  They seem to work about as good as anything for me and I always put things into a Ziplock first anyway for the just-in-case leaks and rather than putting the Ziplock into yet another bag, I have just been putting that into my suitcase.

I need to find a camera + computer combo backpack or bag.  I have tried keeping them in separate bags but I stress out in the security lines with having my valuables, tending to Skylar, keeping an eye on my purse, our passports, Skylar’s stuff, our snacks, and having stuff all over the place in so many different bags.  I’d like to keep the valuables/electronics at least grouped together.

Any travel bags or other kind of bags you really like?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
