A Peek at my Week...

I was hoping to have this post go up on Friday, but... I kind of forgot.  Ha!  Oh well.  So here are some photos from last Sunday to last Thursday.  I've got some photos to share from the weekend with you guys, but I'll be posting those on Friday!  Hopefully it will become a new thing & help me take some photos of my week!  (Also, I will do Monday's Finds again next week, but since I did the link-up party thing yesterday I'm just going to hold off for this week.)

On Sunday my family & I went out to eat with my Nana.  I was showing her my new photo book that I made (I'll share it on here, soon!) and so she was about 10 minutes behind all of us with eating... ha!  We were finished and she was just getting started.
Keith bought me a new camera for Christmas and it has fisheye... so of course I had to take a few photos of Squirt.... hahaha poor girl.
I made kale chips for the first time.  I just added some olive oil, salt & pepper.  If you make them, hold back on the salt... I barely added any but they were sooo salty!  Next time I'm going to add some Parmesan cheese at the end.  Mmm...
I also made some pizza with garlic stuffed olives, broccoli, cherry tomatoes & spinach.  Mmm...
Once every couple of weeks De has a "baby day" at her house.  Jess brings Wolfgang and Lauren brings Sophie and we hang out all afternoon and talk about how cute they are.  Haha!  It's a lot of fun.  I love those two.

Did you guys have a good week?  Did you do anything exciting?

    1. They were pretty good! Sooo light! I suggest eating them all soon after you make them, though. They weren't as crispy a few hours later.

  3. I've heard of Kale chips but don't even know what it is exactly. What does it taste like and why would you make chips out of a "vegetable"(?)... :)

    Also, the pizza looks delicious!

    1. Haha they don't really taste like much, just whatever you season them with! I've been wanting to make them for a little while so I finally did. You can eat kale raw, but it can be a bit bitter so baking them into chips helps to get rid of the bitterness. & kale is suuuuuuuuper healthy for you!

      The pizza was so good! Especially with the garlic stuffed olives! My favourite.

  5. What a lovely week, Holly! I can get lazy sometimes and not take my camera out for personal use but this is inspiring me to bring it out more. :) How did you like the kale chips? I love making them! And that pizza looks fantastic!

    I had a great week/weekend--got to spend some time in Palm Springs celebrating my brother's birthday!
