insta-update

Oh, instagram, how I love thee. Snap a photo, add an artsy filter, give it a clever caption. I love reading blogs, of course, but I find instagram to be just as entertaining.

My instagram feed is super random, but I try to fill it with something that fits into these three categories: pretty things, moments I want to remember, and fun things to share.

Here are a few of my latest photos:

// PRETTY THINGS //

peonies

Freshly cut peonies from our yard. They don’t last long, but they sure are magnificent when they are here!

rainier-cherries

Rainier cherries. De-lish.

sunset

We have had some crazy weather which has made for incredibly beautiful sunsets.

// MEMORIES WORTH CAPTURING //

fathers-day

Father’s Day 2013. Daddy’s being a hero to more than just our family. He is pretty amazing.

monsters-university

Our first movie of the summer and it was SO CUTE! If you haven’t seen it yet, we give it a big thumbs up.

// THINGS WORTH SHARING //

iced-latte

Nothing better than an iced latte in the afternoon. I mix a pod of decaf espresso, cold milk, a splash of vanilla and lots of ice. My friend makes hers with raw sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon and it’s delicious too.

P.S. Do you just adore the Beautiful Mess app? That’s where that cute chevron graphic came from, but I like the preset filters a lot too.

griffin's-party

My youngest nephew turned one last weekend and his mama threw him a newsboy party. So clever and cute and totally right for this little newsie:

griffin-and-his-cake

I could eat him. And the cake.

instagram-video

This is fun: instagram now has video. I posted my first one while in the empty car. You can click on the image to watch it.  Exciting stuff. And yes, my eyelashes are fake.

Yesterday I shared this photo of me working on a very long post at starbucks.

blog-post-coming

I said it was going to go up today, but I lied. I’m not done writing the novel yet, so it will wait until Monday. Do come back … I think you’ll enjoy it.

As part of the post, we’ll be offering a discount on The Blog Class and helping you set up and install your own blog at no extra cost {limited spots}. So if you’ve been wanting to start, grow, get better at blogging, Monday is your day.

Enjoy your weekend!

    Have you tried the PostalPix app? I was skeptical but I LOVE it. It let’s you order pictures directly from your phone in all different types and sizes. I ordered 50 4×4 Instagram pics for around $18 including shipping and received them in 2 days! So easy and now my office bulletin board has so many personal moments. Makes the workday more fun. :)

    That party is the cutest! I’m glad to hear you liked Monsters University. We’re headed to the drive-in within the next week to see it and I had heard mixed reviews. Have a great weekend!

      I really loved the movie. Disney could have gone much scarier with it and I’m so glad they kept it fun and not too spooky. I hope you like it too!

    sweet! i had to snicker to myself because i have an instagram account but rarely use it… this coming from the girl who has to clear out her photo file once a week on her iphone because she kills the memory with video and photos. LOL i know crazy! Thank you for sharing with us… no maybe it’ll help inspire me to do better. :-)

    I don’t do instagram. Had to put a stop to new social sites somewhere! :) Thanks for sharing though. Interesting and that newsboy party–too cute! :)

    It seems we have so much in common, aside from us both being creative people and living in the same state, this blog tells me your husband is a firefighter just like mine. I enjoy reading little snippets of your creative hectic life. Artfully presented,
    honest and true—you don’t come across fake, only genuine.

    I had to stop by to see if your novel was ready. I’m excited for Monday! Do you do Twitter, too? It’s the only social media I have decided to ignore (at least for now).
