So, I have a bit of an issue with my iPhone and the whole storage thing these days. Basically, at least every other day I wind up going to take a photo, only to get an error message saying that I cannot take a picture because there is no more space available. The. Worst.
I mean, it’s my own fault though. For whatever reason, I just can’t bring myself to delete the hundreds of photos that date back to when Lucas was just a little guy. Despite the fact that, mind you, I still have them saved on an external hard drive.
Go figure. I guess I just want access to my baby photos all day, every day?
But since I am down to about my last .5GB of space or something like that in my whole iCloud thing, I figured I’d take some time to go through and delete some of the old stuff that I really don’t need. Like when I have about 10 photos of the same thing and they’re all blurry because Lucas is a non-stop moving tornado.
In going through my 800 photos, I found quite a few to get rid of, and I also found a few that I haven’t gotten the chance to share yet. So I thought today would be the perfect opportunity for a little photo dump. Shall we? From oldest to most recent…
Lucas loves to pretend that he’s “hiding” under things, like the kitchen table. This was on a Wednesday when I was working from home with him and we played a bit of hide and seek.
He was, obviously, hating it.
This was an item I got from Stitch Fix a few months ago. It did not make the cut…
This was Lucas striking a pose, I believe, shortly after his first birthday. That’s my guess because that’s when he got those sunglasses and they were totally a thing for a few days.
Not quite sure where they are now…
This was a random lunch I threw together one day that wound up tasting delicious. Cooked wheatberries, chopped deli turkey, a wedge of The Laughing Cow cheese, chopped tomatoes, broccoli, and a drizzle of balsamic dressing.
It may have been a couple of months ago, but I still remember it. It was gooood.
Here’s another random Lucas meal.
On this particular night he had some chopped hamburger with ketchup (which he was not a fan of), some pasta with a little butter, and veggies. I try to get different food groups when I can…doesn’t always pan out the way I hope. Ahh well, what can ya do, right?
Here’s an after-dinner snack of cereal with almond milk and a little bit of vanilla almond butter on top.
Seriously. A life without cereal is one I don’t wanna live.
Have you guys tried out the Chobani yogurts with steel-cut oats?
I did…wasn’t a huge fan. I’d rather make overnight oats with yogurt on my own.
Here’s an example of a random photo I really should just delete.
Yet, it’s still in my phone.
Ahhh, okay, now HERE is a photo I need some feedback from you guys on. Back when Jay and I were making the BLT’s from our Blue Apron dinners, we got into a bit of a discussion on how you make grilled cheese (or, in our case, grilled BLT’s).
So I need to know…when you guys make a grilled cheese, do you butter and grill BOTH sides of the bread (i.e., butter and grill one side of each, assemble sandwich with grilled sides inside, then butter/grill outside), or do you assemble the sandwich and then just butter and grill ONE side of the bread.
I’m not going to tell you which camp I fall in because I told Jay I’d be fair. But please, fill me in, because my mind was boggled when I found out how Jay makes his.
This was a random snack plate I made one day while working from home.
Toast + mashed avocado = amazing.
And last, here’s a random photo of my pasta-loving little man.
He knows where it’s at.
So in addition to sharing my random mix of iPhone photos today, I’m hoping that you guys will be able to help me out a bit…
I’ve noticed lately that a few of my fellow blog pals decided to conduct surveys for their blog readers. At first I was like, meh, why bother. But the more I read their questions and started thinking about how helpful the results could be, I decided that I wanted to do one for STSL, too.
These days, I really just don’t have a ton of extra time to blog, and it stinks, because I have so many ideas that I just don’t know will ever make it to being published. I blog because I love chatting with all of you and sharing (bits and pieces) of my life. Blogging is not my full time job, but it is a hobby that has afforded me some incredible opportunities, and that is something that I never take for granted here.
I have all of you to thank for so much, and because of that, I would really love some feedback straight from you guys. If you’re going to continue to visit (which I hope you will!) I want to make sure that I’m giving you what you guys are interested in. I know many of you don’t often comment, which is cool (I’m a silent reader most of the time, too!) but the only feedback I really have to go on most of the time is blog comments or emails.
SO, if you have 5 quick minutes (or probably less!) I would really love it if you’d take the time to check out my survey. And as an extra big thank you for taking the time for reading and helping me out, I’m going to randomly select an entry to win a $75 Amazon Gift Card.*
survey will be open until 11:59pm on Thursday, 9/26.
*To be entered for the giveaway, you’ll need to include your email address at the end of the survey. If you’d prefer to remain anonymous with the survey, that’s totally fine, but you won’t be entered in the giveaway.
Thank you so much, guys. Have a fabulous day! And if nothing else…help me out with that grilled cheese question up there!!
