Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : A Random Thing Or Two-sday


A Random Thing Or Two-sday

1) Happy Valentine's Day and Happy 1 month Birthday to my little Lukey!

2)Did you know that Montezuma, the old Mexican chief dude, drank 50 cups of chocolate on a daily basis? It was considered a "love drug" (source). Looks like we have ourselves a fabulous reason to indulge in some serious chocolate eating today. No complaints here. One pound box of See's candies, anyone?

3) Love my camera, so I think it's time I buy a tripod. She needs a friend to lean on. 

4) Photoshop frightens me. I stare at the screen with a dumbfounded look on my face, that is slowly followed by fear and anxiety every time I attempt to use it. Are classes offered for this sort of thing? I mean for Photoshop, not the anxiety -- they make pills for that, but now that I'm thinking of it, someone should probably work on a pill for how to be Photoshop savvy.

5) I looked down the other day after eating my PB&J sandwich to a mushy, brown substance on my finger. I'm not quite sure if it was in fact peanut butter or baby poo. And yes, I am a freak about washing my hands a million times a day. Still trying to figure that one out, still kind of grossed out. Oh, the woes of motherhood.

And here is one extra random thing for good measure...

6) The average person will spend an estimated 20,160 min kissing in their lifetime (source). That is 336 hours, which is exactly 14 days. I hope you all exponentially increase this number today. Oh snap.

Do me a solid and hop on over here to submit your daily vote! xoxo

My camera needs a friend to--then might be able to get some of me and the husband together without us looking slightly odd--or maybe we always look that way and I'm just making excuses

Hi, so so glad I came across your blog! I absolutely LOVE it.
Had to chuckle at your peanut buttter sandwich story, I think all moms have that "experience" at one stage.
Happy to say I'm a new follower.

You could take a online class, it is way easier, the teach usually shows screenshots of what every step should look like, other than that...experiment!! Xo.

Ah, yes... I was once terrified of PS. I'm now addicted. Just go in there and start messing around. It's sort of terrifying at first, but trust me - it gets easy with time.
I'm still learning new things every day!

Totally agree with modern suburbanites- Lightroom is the way to go! They have a free beta thing out at the moment :)

Say :)

Chocolate is such a delight! I woke up to a delectable pain au chocolate from my hubby this morning before he left for work. Decadent!

There was a gal I met at a networking event a while back who actually offered digital classes on how to utilize Photoshop. It was pretty clever since it's definitely NOT user-friendly!
