My Week via Instagram. - Pretty Real

My Week via Instagram.

7:35 PM

I have so much to share with you...but finding the time is proving to be a challenge!  Ugh!  I follow other blogs that do a snapshot of their weeks in instagram pics and I always love those.  I personally  don't like to follow people I don't know in real life on instagram so I keep my peeps exclusive.  BUT I still love seeing snapshots into others' lives (does that make me weird?) in a cute and fun way.  If you're the same way, keep reading...

"I love eating in the backyard with my little family- especially when the weather is perfect."
I took this tonight.  We have used our sunroom and backyard more this year than ever before.  I love it!  There are a lot of things about this little starter home that bug me but the back yard is for sure not one of them!  I love this picture and I must admit that now that I have my new phone (with the front camera), I can be in pics! It's the little things...

"Can't wait for Nadia's circus party."
 I embellished Nadia's invitation with twine and tickets and I just love how it came out!  I'll tell you my 'mommy brain' story about the invitations later [oy] and share pictures of the entire invitation designed by my fabulous sister in law.

"Test Driving a recipe for the party.  Can't. Stop. Eating. This."
I tried out a recipe I plan to make for Nadia's party and it was SO. GOOD.  I probably gained an L-B from my incessant munching.  I took it to Shiloh's summer fest and it was immediately confiscated and almost demolished.  Which of course made me super happy.

"Look what I found Angela! Adorable book about "us" that you gave me when we graduated...complete with the sweetest note ever.  I love you sweet girl!"

If you knew my BFF from college you'd see why this book and these illustrations are so perfect.  She is blond and wore glasses.  Joe found this when we were cleaning out the basement and I teared up when I read her oh so sweet message to me on the front cover.  If you're interested in this sweet book, you can find it here.

Another party sneak peek.  I am in love with this "Jungle Toss" game I snagged from Land of Nod.  I pinned it weeks ago and then the price went down.  And then I found a coupon code.  It was like fate.  So sweet and perfect for a Circus/Carnival party!

"Rockin the side ponytail for school.  And told me "I love you very much" as she left.  So cute!"
Some weeks I go days without combing this poor kid's hair...and then I try to make up for it by doing cute ponies or using some adorable barrette that grandma sent us.  I loved this side pony and I could tell she thought she was cute. ;)

"Bought this candle.  And then got very sad that my baby's not a baby."
The caption says it all.  

"Little ones look so angelic when they sleep"
Took this on the way home from church last week.  I love her face.

Super cute votive holder.  I also bought orange with pumpkins, lime green with bats, and black with skulls a few years ago.  However I bought them for a Halloween party that never happened.  And I am really not into Halloween- especially the spooky/scary part of it.  So I planned to sell them at a yard sale (one in which we made a very abysmal $30 mostly due to rain and the president being in town blocking off roads on either side of our sale.  boo! [resisting the urge to go into a political diatribe])! but they seemed perfect for my sis-in-law so they found a good home!  

And that's it.  It's actually kind of cool to look back at what I did all week.  Party stuff.  Kid stuff.  Stupid yard sale stuff.  What about you?  How was your week?  Do you love instagram as much as I do?
