Snippets of My Week(s) #4

On AltChat yesterday, I mentioned that by telling some small stories behind my Instagram pics, there is a little peak into bp behind the writing.  Follow me @blogger_bp to join in the fun!  This Snippets of My Week series has been fun for me and I am happy to hear you like it too. I am behind on my snippets, with pictures and stories collected over the course of two weeks.  Who knows what I see or hear will make me write about next, but at least my snippets give you a look into the things in life that this gal is sweet on ….  speaking of which… ONE   Talk about sweet.  Not only is this a collection of yummies, but these were all little treats I received from friends in a week.  Gluten free?  Check!  Dairy free?  Double check!  Surprise sweets are even sweeter when they are from thoughtful, loving people.  And that giant slice of baby shower cake to celebrate one of my best gals?  I couldn’t eat it (okay, maybe just …

Snippets of My Week #3

Sometimes the mind doesn’t cooperate, even after writing for close to 14 or 15 hours on one post over two days.  Upside:  I always have my snippets to recharge the batteries! Enjoy my Snippets from the week that was … and I will be back guns blazing tonight, or tomorrow- at some point… come back, okay??? MONDAY Toffifay and our Furbish Studio piñatas! There are few things that make us laugh more than seeing our little penguin getting his fiesta on for Cinco de Mayo. + I still let loose, but it’s different in my 30s.  Click here for my post on My Thirty Spot. While in my last year as a 30-something, I still have time to write about life from this perspective.  Erin Kennedy’s Love for 30 Project is just the venue for a post like that. My contribution was published on My Thirty Spot that morning. Click here. + + + TUESDAY The Thistle Juice bar at StudioMix. My intentions were honorable, but maybe I shouldn’t have thought eating only half of a banana …

Snippets of My Week #2

  I must admit, this past week was an emotional doozy for me. I needed to call in reinforcements.  My mind and nerves were rearranged like a Rubix cube, but there were many sources of happiness that  I outright sought for which I am thankful.  As SoulCycle always reminds me when we chat, “Remember those little moments, because you will always find them.” Take a look at my moments from the past week, in this case: Snippets of What Made Me Happy     I am in love with happy mail.  Just the thought of it makes me smile from ear to ear.  I love to receive it but I get a real kick (the good kind) in creating and sending it.   This week I sent out a few candy grams to some blog mentors.  Chocolate makes everything sweeter!   When you are surprised your shoe box holds actual shoes, you know you have a problem.  I have paper tucked into several bins, drawers and shoe boxes.   They hold stickers …  and ribbon …

Snippets Of My Week #1

  As the Easter season comes to an end, I am reminded of the blessings I have and those day to day moments that make me smile.  These are some of the happy snippets from my week. All pictures were taken by me, unless otherwise indicated. Follow me on Instagram (@blogger_bp) to see more!         I started cooking again– it’s been a while.  I have been surviving on green smoothies, take out Pho, lettuce wrapped Super Duper burgers, and Amy’s Organic vegetable soups for the past weeks.  Wielding a kitchen knife and  hitting the farmers’ markets again has felt Oh-so-right … Even the simplest homemade dishes, when prepared with my hands, make me feel like I’ve come home.            I wish I could say I found my original P.O. Box key after misplacing it for a few weeks, but having it replaced was good enough.   Since the stern postal worker who warned me I’d lose it months back when she saw me casually toss my key into my bag …
