I {Heart} Instagram

Happy Monday, y’all! I hope you had a fantabulous weekend and you’re all geared up for this week!  My husband was out of town last week, so I didn’t do much around the house at all – no DIY projects or craft. {gasp!} I spent my time finding fun things to do with Ridley. It kept us busy and mostly not missing “Daddy” too much.

My little buddy.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m loving Instagram. I just downloaded it when they came out with the Android app and I’m hooked. What I love so much is that Instagram makes it easy to capture sweet moments like never before. Sometimes it’s a pain to lug around my larger DSLR camera, but using my camera phone is perfect.

I found this awesome divided basket at a thrift shop for one dolla! :)

One of my Memaw’s roses. She has a super tall rosebush.

Lily {my niece} and Ridley ridin’ on a little 4-wheeler…very slowly.

I loved catching this moment of my Dad reading to Lily and Ridley.

We went to a festival this weekend and as we hiked from parking to the festival, we crossed a beautiful creek.

My little man loved riding a horse. I was petrified that they didn’t have him strapped on or something, so I kept reminding him to hold on tight. :)

Ridley did a little kiddie bungee jumping. He was so brave!

We finished off Saturday with lunch at Moe’s and grocery shopping.

We had a fun, busy week and weekend and now I’m ready to conquer the neglected laundry piles and the kitchen, oh yeah, the kitchen. I’m hoping to begin working on the boy room cleanout and makeover this week. If you see any extra energy floating around, send it my way!

I would love to connect with you on Instagram. My username is my_blessed_life.

  10. I just started with Instagram today :) my username is littlemama769

  11. I haven’t ventured into Instagram yet. One addiction at a time, I say. =)
    Was your hubby at T4G last week? Our pastors were planning to go, but had to cancel. I know all about keeping kiddos busy while daddy is gone. My husband has four trips business trips a year and each of them are anywhere from 10 days to two weeks long. Looks like you all had fun, though!

  12. Mine is photolovr4. I JUST started using it and I like it so far. I’m probably showing my ignorance, but the only thing I really dislike about it is how it MAKES you crop the picture in a perfect square. Grrr. Still, it’s a great app! I’m following you now, btw! :)
