Playing Around With MoreLomo

This past weekend I had a chance to try out a new little App on my Iphone; MoreLomo. This is a free Iphone App that turns your everyday photos into works of art.

I began taking little photos around my house just to see what the program would do. Here is an average, everyday picture of some silk flowers in my home. From mundane to stunning!

Then my favorite Starbucks drink became my focus. Iced Vanilla Soy Chai never looked so good!


What about the Flyer from Trader Joe's, one of our local grocery stores? Cute, huh?


The App works pretty well on static things but what about people you ask? Well, here's my grandson Anthony. I've been told it makes him look like he's wearing lipstick. I don't know, I kind of like it. But then I think he's cute no matter WHAT. Just look at those dreamy eyes.


Then this weekend my hubby and I went down to our beach. The weather was beautiful, in the 70's, the tide was out and the beach was littered with shells and rocks. As I squatted down to pick up a complete sand dollar, I looked out over the Ocean and thought what a good picture it would make. I flipped on MoreLomo, sat my phone right down on the beach sand with the sand dollar in plain view and took this awesome picture. I'm in LOVE. Just look at the blues, browns and the way it is shaded all around the edges. This App gets a two thumbs up from me!!

Hey Retirement! Don't take OUR Date Night Away!!

"Wait! Did we budget for Date Night??"

Wednesday night is Date Night at our house. It's been that way for a LONG time! And we didn't want retirement to do away with our weekly fun. So today, I'm going to cover some good ways to keep that fun coming and be able to pay for it with slightly reduced funds.
Put some money in the budget. Analyze what you can afford and how many times you will be going out during the month. If you get paid twice a month, budget for two date nights. If you get paid weekly, you only need to budget it in for the week. For us, we are getting paid once a month so we will budget for 4 to 5 nights out. We set aside about $20 to $25 per week for date nightRemember, it's about spending time together not how fancy the dining is. You can make a picnic one week and then spend double the following week at a nice place. You can make dinner at home and go to see a play or movie. In our case we could go to the beach with some hot dogs, potato chips a…

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures.

The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist!

Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart.


The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla.


These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake.


Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, burp pads and Ones…

Oui Yogurt by Yoplait. Simply DELICIOUS!

Have you guys tried OUI yogurt yet?

OH MY GOSH YOU HAVE TO!! It is DELICIOUS!
This isn't the first jar I've had. Last month we discovered this yogurt at our .99 Store in San Luis Obispo and they were selling it 2 for $1. Yes, you read that right and I'm almost scared to state that on here for fear it will cause a run on the store! I know you guys think that if it's in a .99 Store, something must be wrong with it, but that isn't so. These are in date, sealed properly and absolutely perfect.

Oui yogurt, made by General Mills and Yoplait, currently comes in comes in eight flavors: strawberry, blueberry, black cherry, vanilla, coconut, lemon, peach, and plain.The yogurt is also non-gmo, gluten free and lightly sweetened with cane sugar in the fruited varieties.It is made using whole milk rather than reduced or no fat, a long culturing time and two kinds of fermenting cultures; L. Bulgaricus and S. Thermophilus. I've tried all of the flavors over the last couple of mon…
