A Week in the Life, Vol 3.

January is just chugging right along.

My mom watches Max on Mondays after school, and when Emilia and I go to pick him up, they ALWAYS have ice cream. Always. Even if it’s freezing.

But aren’t the winter sunsets so amazing even if you see them out of a filthy car window?

I made my blood orange coffee cake and put it in my instagram highlights! That cake is unreal.

Post-nap hair perfection.

Max was so excited to get a black jersey at hockey practice.

And I tested a really delish squash recipe at 9am.

My go-to order right now is iced blonde vanilla latte. Always iced!

The stories Emilia tells while waiting in the pick up line for Max… are priceless. And she sits there and calls his name MAX until he comes out.

Friday they got a donut!

And then Max convinced me to make slime. I always regret this idea.

But he did ask me if he could do the dishes!

And then he later stole my phone and I’m now the proud owned of 200 photos on my camera roll, like this one above.

This coming week, I have a cookbook shoot! This is just the tip of the iceberg for a cookbook shoot. We are doing 30 recipes starting now through Wednesday.

Blurry from far picture at basketball practice! He loves it and thinks he is there to play with friends.

In the meantime, Emilia was quite distraught she can’t go out on the court with him. Coloring to the rescue.

Saturday was such a miserable weather day – snow, sleet and then pouring rain. So we got PIZZA.

First thing Sunday morning I prepped a dish of garlic confit for the week! Aka, liquid gold.

UNREAL.

Lacy and I prepped a ton of food for the cookbook shoot. And I set out some of my favorite dishes for photos. Believe it or not, photographing a cookbook is SO much easier than blog recipes. It really only requires one finished shot. But I have to LOVE it. Obviously. I’ve been known to start from scratch after photographing half the book…

I really wish we would get SNOWED IN and not just this laughable dusting.

Snowflakes in this little babe’s hair though!!

That’s all we got.

And just like last week we finished the week with some mexican food. Eeeep.

Another nice little regular week. These are the magic moments, right?
