The one with the things I liked this week (74)

How has your week been? Mine was pretty ok. I still get surprised by some of the amazing architecture in my home city that I discover on after work or weekend walks. This week I started watching 'the Following', which is pretty scary. It's like Criminal Minds, the kind of show I know I shouldn't be watching. Alone. At night.

The sun created some pretty awesome shadows, so I really needed to take a selfie. Shadow selfies are the kind of selfies I feel comfortable taking.

We're still in the race towards becoming (I can't help but reading this in Tyra Banks' voice) World Champion. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed tomorrow!

This awesome gift was given to me by my friends R+L+J. It's a shoe AND it's chocolate! Does it get any better than that?

Other than that, I treated myself to concert tickets for Dutch singer Dotan. I went thrift shopping yesterday and found the photo frames I have been eyeing for a while now. Only those were new and 5 times the price. And these are even prettier. Once they're cleaned up a bit, I might show them over here. I think they deserve to be seen :-)
My friend Mandy sent me a text message yesterday, if I wanted to go to Amsterdam this saturday. She won a workshop/photoshoot, that lasts all day. We also get to take pictures ourselves. It lasts pretty much all day (it involves food too!). I'm pretty anxious, because I hate having my pictures taken, but sometimes it's a good thing getting out of that comfort zone. And saying 'yes' to more things was one of my resolutions at the beginning of the year.
What are your plans? Anything special planned, or will you go with the flow and see where the weekend takes you? Whatever it is you'll be doing, have fun!


  1. A CHOCOLATE SHOE???? That is one really good and amazing friend. lol
    I would love to see some of those photos after the shoot, it sounds like a fun time. I don't have anything really planned for the weekend...I love to just wait and see what pops up. :0)

  2. I have not bewared of the following but I am a huge fan of criminal minds.

  3. A chocolate polka dot shoe!!! That is so cool!
    Your photo workshop sounds amazing! Have fun :)

  4. Be sure to share the pics with your friend, Marieken:) And my sis is obsessed with that show. I've never seen it myself.

  5. The shadow is just so perfect!!! And yes for the chocolate shoes. I wouldn't even want to eat it.

  6. It looks like a fun week! I do love your selfie. I took one similar too last year. You are like me, that's the only selfie I'll take. Well, I did take one of baby Paige and me recently but I'll never show it to anyone.

  7. Oh dear...are you ever going to be able to eat that chocolate? I would struggle.

  8. That chocolate shoe is beautiful and I bet very scrumptious as well. Kisses, darling.

  9. So you took a photo of yourself while on a bike?! That's pretty ingenious!
    I have a friend who would go crazy for that chocolate shoe.

  10. ooo..I should check out The Following. I see it on my suggestion list on Netflix but I haven't gotten around to it. I don't even know what it is about.


I love to read your thoughts and comments
