Happy Valentines Day

.: Ally and I woke up, rather latish for a rather interesting Valentines Day... We started out making some realllllly yummy crepes... We had strawberries, pineapple, raspberries and mango. When you add in the homemade whipped cream and some mimosa... It was a great start to the morning. Later we started making dinner which I didn't take pics of, but was Ally and my first attempt at homemade ravioli... Needless to say, we failed... not horribly but we didn't succeed either.. They were falling apart, couldn't serve them, and generally failed.. Oh well.. The night wasn't killed.. Just set back. We watched our gifts to each other (we got the pixar movies).. and relaxed the rest of the night. It was a nice day :)

.: PS. Love ya Ally!

Ambient Light Accessories...

.: I'm on REI's twitter feed... I like REI. They are a good company and they sell sweet stuff... That being said, They posted this product two days in a row, Mammut's Ambient Light Accessory... I looked at it and said, dang you want $10 for this? It's a simple defuser.... The first ad they posted was for $40 but it included the headlamp... but still.. it's a lot of money...

.: So I made my own for about 5 cents... a foot of wax paper from the kitchen, roll it a couple times and tape it to my headlamp. it's water proof and waaaay lighter then the mammut one... So for any hiker/camper out there that wants to share some light in a tent... grab some wax paper and save your $10.
