Healthy foods, a note about the weekend, and other miscellaneous items…

1. Happy Friday, everyone. I hope you had a great week. This Quick Takes will be quick; my mom and dad are coming into town and we’re celebrating my mom’s birthday tonight. Should be fun!

2. I know I don’t normally post on the weekends, but I’ll be here on Saturday. You’ll see why if you stop by. I hope you do. :)

3. Looking for some healthy foods after all the holiday celebrating? Check out my friend Amanda’s smoothie recipe. It looks awesome and her photos are always gorgeous.

4. Speaking of photos, I’m having a ton of fun with my new camera. I recently discovered this excellent article about digital photography, shared at Geek Girl Reviews.

5. And if you’re interested in photographing food, read some more great tips here.

6. A sincere thank you to The Happy Little Wren, More Than a Mom, and Misadventures of a Mom of 3 for the blog awards this week. I truly appreciate it!

7. Last, for all you bloggers, I recommend reading Darren at ProBlogger’s excellent post titled 52 Blog Tips to Kick Start Your Blog in 2010.
Have a great weekend, everyone. I’ll look forward to seeing you on Saturday and Mom-Monday too!
