My Sweet New Pic, Courtesy of Rock Candy Studios

Last week three San Antonio mom bloggers, Misha, Amanda, and Megan, generously shared their photography talents with other SA mom bloggers. A head shot meetup was born! We met at Bakery Lorraine.

Sometimes a pin comes along that I just have to test. Is it ultra cool? Will it make my life easier? Can it make me appear to be a cook without me actually having to cook? These are the pins I put to the test. Baked Eggs pin from Pinterest Boiling eggs? Not my forte. […]
