Today I'm sharing a few things that have caught my eye this week! *links contain affiliate links
Have you all checked out the Safavieh line at Target!? Oh my goodness, so much amazingness going on!
I had a general understanding of photography when I started blogging, but I really didn't know how to use my camera in manual mode. I'm a visual learner, so reading about it didn't work for me.. I took Shoot Fly Shoot's photography 101 class and everything clicked! The videos that make up the class are clear and concise - I was using my camera in manual mode in just a few hours!!
I was introduced to the world of blogging by Layla and Kevin, so I really can't say enough good things about them - they rock!
If you're tired of using your camera in auto mode, take the 101 class, you won't regret it, click the banner above!
I'm not a food blogger, and never will be .. but I just had to share one of my favorite recipes today! I love this because it's a quick and relatively healthy dessert or snack. David and I like to have dessert in the evening, but so many that you buy taste SO sugar heavy, this is great because you control the sweetness.
I prefer not to measure, so these are just approximates.. taste as you go, when you make it once you'll know what works for you.
Chocolate Pudding / Mousse Yogurt: ~1/2 to 1 cup plain non fat yogurt (greek makes it even more pudding like), 100% baking cocoa powder (I like special dark) to taste, you want the yogurt to be pretty dark, stevia to taste, whip cream to taste. Mix yogurt, cocoa, stevia till blended, then gently fold in whipped cream (you want it to be airy).
Lemon Pudding / Mousse Yogurt: ~1/2 to 1 cup plain non fat yogurt (greek or regular), ~1-2 Tablespoons Lemon Curd (Trader Joes is so good!), whip cream to taste. Mix lemon curd and yogurt, then gently fold in whipped cream.
I don't have a specific calorie count, but for about 3/4 cup, I'd guess it has under 100 calories. The great thing about this recipe is you can customize it to work with your diet and schedule. You can make it completely sugar or dairy free.. try almond or soy yogurt or making homemade lemon curd or whip cream if you have the time!
My favorite is the chocolate, even with regular plain yogurt (vs. greek) it has the texture of pudding when mixed with the cocoa powder. You HAVE to try it, SO good! If you love pudding or mousse than you'll love this recipe!
I've been thinking about our future kitchen reno recently. I don't think that we'll have room for a dedicated pantry, but if we can squeeze one in, I'd love something like this pantry from Oh Happy Day! Please pin from original source. Thanks!

The floor to ceiling white subway tile is dreamy and I love those thin shelf brackets - they look custom or vintage.
Carlisle dining chair, set of two. Currently on sale for $79. Yes, only $79 for the pair! These would be great mixed with these mid century modern style shell chairs paired with West Elm's Parker Mid-Century Modern table
Hope you all have a great weekend! We're hoping to have a slower weekend, enjoying some sun, relaxing and a few DIY projects mixed in!
p.s. I've decided to truncate my posts the day after they've posted. If you're unfamiliar, truncated posts will have an image and intro text then a link >> CLICK TO READ THE REST OF THE POST to view the rest of the post.
I know that a lot of people strongly dislike truncated posts, hopefully truncating the day after posting will help with that. I've decided to truncate for two reasons: 1. Protect my content from site scrapers more info here 2. For a cleaner home page.
If you have an opinion, I'd love it hear it!
