MDS Blog Hop - Foodie!

Alright! It's Friday and my page is finally up! I've been working on an Angry Birds party invitation for my little guy who is turning 5 next week and I don't even want to admit how much time I've spent on it.  I'll post it in the next couple of days, but that's the reason for my lateness this morning.

I was pretty excited about our subject this week - food!  I have no problems admitting it - I'm a foodie. Have you seen the newest Jim Gaffigan special on Netflix? You know the part where he talks about all the pictures we take - including our food?  I laughed so hard I nearly choked.  It describes me to a T. My poor kids are going to remember me as being stuck behind a camera and/or cell phone.  Sigh.  I am preserving their memories though...

Ok, since I am an admitted foodie, I have a bazillion pictures of food and I wasn't sure how I would narrow it down.  Then...I went to a friend's house this week for our bi-weekly craft day and she made this A-mazing salad! Lemon Orzo Salad.  She said it normally has asparagus, but she substituted zucchini  (yum!)  this time around.  Of course I snapped a picture of this colorful dish and now I've scrapped it.  :)

I borrowed a layout idea from Jessica Sprague and now I will forever remember how much my friend Julie inspires (and spoils) me.

I was hoping to put up the links for all the downloads I used (there are several), but right now I have an almost 5 year old little man begging for my attention.  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

OH dear! This is just amazing. I love how you used the hexagon in the background. Just a great page all around. P.S. I get to see your beautiful creation from last week as I saved it as my background screen. I love it. :)
