Update on Dot, in which I make excuses, give you a new recipe, and make some book recommendations.

Roasted Chicken Cast Iron with Roasted Cumin Cauliflower
This last month with the holidays and lots of web design work has been a total mess for me.  Work & family has kept me really busy, so I admit I’ve been neglecting this poor little blog! I do have a bunch of cool pics to show you guys from halloween (I assume you still want to see the awesome food and costumes, even if I am 2 months late?), plus some cool stuff for xmas coming up.  I’ll really try to be better this month!  I also have a cool giveaway coming up, as soon as I put the post together, so stay tuned for that.… [ KEEP READING ]

A Lazy Weekend – and phone photo photoshopping.

A Lazy Weekend - and phone photo photoshopping.
I realize I have been somewhat remiss in just plain old posting regularly this summer, and I’ll try to do better… :) We’ve had a lovely, lazy weekend in the 100+ degree weather, mostly staying inside except for the trek out to the cheapy sushi place (The Boy’s pick) on friday, with a wandering through Target afterwards. I snapped this pic on the grate – very Marilyn!- with my phone’s facebook app, so the quality was mediocre. I gussied it up a bit in photoshop, giving it a bit of a trendy instagram look. [I’ve been Instagramming (I’m dotdorsner) on my phone quite a bit and I must admit it is a bit addictive.… [ KEEP READING ]

My favorite photo from the other day

My favorite photo from the other day
The Boy does love his diet coke.   Snapped on my camera phone.  Can any Atlantans identify the location?

Back from our Mexican Vacation! (and Tiny Prints cards came in!)

Me, the husband, our friends, and the boy just got back from our Mexican Vacation. It was a blast. We trekked into the interior to go see pyramids, then spent several days relaxing on the beach at Isla Mujeres, off the coast of Cancún. It was a great trip, and I highly recommend it for a family vacation.
Some highlights and recommendations:
  • For our first night we stayed at a little eco hotel in downtown Cancún, El Rey del Caribe. It was lovely– a little oasis in downtown with a jungle like courtyard with a pool, hammocks, and a huge banyon tree.

We had a blast at a blogger party last night, sponsored by Tiny Prints… I’ll have a full writeup on it and coupon codes for you guys, later this afternoon! Here it is – go check out the pics! It was great to hang out with everyone and get pampered for mother’s day..

Snow days and punctuation question

Snow days and punctuation question
We’ve had school closed all week for snow. ALL WEEK! Even here in Atlanta that never happens (we close the schools for pretty much any level of snow, but it’s usually gone by the next day). So I’ve had husband (work was closed too) AND 5 year old home all week. Which means my usual calm work from home days were totally turned upside down. But we did have fun sledding and being lazy. Today we walked to Fernbank for some museum of natural history fun! Now for punctuation: What the heck is this? You’re NOT supposed to use 2 spaces after the period at the end of the sentence?
