indulging yet another food whim {ward 6}

Ward 6 was my short list of places to go after recovering from surgery.  I not only dreamed of things such as sitting and wearing jeans again, but visions of Adult Milkshakes and Food for Drinking helped push me through some of the most vicious days.  Someday, I thought.

Well that someday was Friday.  MY BIRTHDAY!  And the Rum Raisin Milkshake and Poutine lived every bit up to the fantasy.

Not to mention the Fatty Melt and Reuben.  [We shared.]

Ward 6 has a spendid cocktail list.  And menu.  Plus I hear their breakfast is TO.DIE.FOR. as well.  So we need to go back.

Soon.

the everyday photographer workshop for three

© Tina Vega Photography

I met the three lovely ladies (pictured above) at the workshop I hosted last weekend.  They were all related (cousin, mom & daughter) which was so much fun.

© Tina Vega Photography

They shared bits and pieces of their own stories which inspired me.  There was a lot of talk about family, making time for the things that really matter, serving others, and living at a slow enough pace to see the beauty surrounding us.

© Tina Vega Photography

My kind of group. :)  Not only did the ladies learn how to photograph in full-on manual mode.

They also had the privilege of eating the food props, which included Peanut Butter Cup mini cakes from my one and only Desserts in Jars cookbook.

While I couldn’t find the exact recipe online, click HERE for one that comes pretty darn close.  (I topped ours with dark chocolate chips instead of broken Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.)

A memorable day all around; thank you SO MUCH for being part of it Kristen, Sarah & Pam!

our birthday bingo tradition

This being our second year in a row, I am officially calling it a tradition.  My mom, sister, and I met for breakfast to celebrate Stacey and my birthday season.

That overlap of time when we share the same age for a month and a half.

Breathe.  Because we are barely into the new year and time is passing far too quickly.

© Tina Vega Photography

Breathe.  Because I’m creeping ever closer to the age my parents were when they became GRANDPARENTS.

My official birthday is today and my immediate family will be helping me indulge in yet another food whim as we celebrate tonight.  (Details to follow soon!)

Happy birthday, Tina!

Tina - February 28, 2015 - 7:25 pm

Thank you, Kathie!!
