Insta Friday

Welcome to InstaFriday!

Don’t have your bulky camera with you all day but you have your phone handy?

Take pics of the sweet, funny, random moments of your day and then paint the picture of what you’ve been up to all week!

I have an iPhone and use the Instagram app, but any cell phone pics will work!

Somehow I got on the mailing list for one of those birthday party supply catalogs.

Bieber Fever on the cover.

It’s just a lot.

A lot.

And it’s purple.

My eyes are bleeding.

I had $40 Kohl’s cash that was set to expire on Saturday.

I thought, ‘hey, maybe I’ll get some new shoes?!’

I saw these.

Oh.  My.

So bad.

I can’t even imagine someone EVER seeing these and thinking “Wow!  So cute!!!”

(Now watch, I’m gonna get an email from someone who not only owns them but swears they are the most comfortable shoes they’ve ever owned.)

So, I ended up getting that ice cream maker I’ve been pining over the last few weeks.

Best part?

It was on sale for $48.99.

So I only paid $9.43 out of pocket!

Sweet!

My kids have been playing really well together lately.

Sometimes it’s a constant fight.

They adore one another and seek eachother out constantly.

But they often want the same exact toy.

It was a balm to my soul to see them enjoying one another without screaming.

Speaking of balm to my soul.

My sweet girl.

She’s been able to pull to standing for a while now…but she always need a lip or something to grab onto to hoist herself up.

It was so hard to watch.

You ever seen those weight lifters whose bodies shake and twitch and beads of sweat form until they can get that huge weight over their head?

Once they get it up there they can stop and smile?

That was kinda what it was like watching Jilly pull up on the train table or whatever.

But not anymore.

She’s fast.

And can pull up on flat surfaces.

Strong like bull.

She even pulled up to standing with her brother.

It was so sweet.

He held her there so patiently.

“Look Mommy!  Jilly’s standing!  She’s doing so good!!!”

That boy has a heart the size of Texas.

He is always so so so proud of his little sister.

Not to be outdone, Lucy came over for a group hug.

I wish you could hear the audio.

Jill was giggling so hard.

Just thought this was the funniest thing ever.

 

 

Two pots of Pasta e Fagioli done and ready by 6:00 a.m?

Check.

Took dinner to Jen yesterday.

Got to snuggle her 2 week old babes.

Love that newborn smell.

There’s just nothing in the world quite like it.

Pure sweetness in a tiny bundle.

 

Okay, ladies!

Now it’s your turn to link up!

But before you go, don’t forget to read yesterday’s post if you haven’t already.

It’s beautiful.  And I want you to see it.  Because it’s important.

I think you’ll agree.

Happy Friday!!!

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    Those shoes are ridunkulous. Seriously. Who wears things like that anyway?

    We got an ice cream maker for Christmas (two years ago–I know, please don’t throw something at me) and it’s still in the box. It’s one of those things we mean to do but it’s easier to grab a half gallon of Blue Bell and call it a day.

    Two big pans of soup? By 6:00 am? I’m in awe. And that was really nice of you to make it for your friend.

    Group hugs are the best!

    I’ve enjoyed your InstaFridays for a while now but this is my first week to jump in with the party. Thanks!

    you’re right. Those shoes are hands down the most hideous things I’ve ever seen! I’m glad you didn’t use your gift certificate to buy them :)

    Loved, loved the picture of the girls hugging Henry!!!! Melts my heart and warms my soul. Just wait until he gets older they will not ever find a girl good enough to date their big brother.

    It was so fun to see you and your family at the wedding a couple of weeks ago. I love the group hug. Now for some reason the instafriday button didn’t work this week for me. Any suggestions? This is fun and it’s fun to see and meet other bloggers this way. Thanks, Jeannett. love you

    Very cool! I am so with you on going between my easy to use Canon Powershot digital camera, which I LOVE and my AT&T iPhone digital camera – which is also so easy to use. I have the instagram app but haven’t tried it yet. Now I’ll have to go experiment. I just got the Camera Zoom app which is sweet. The quality isn’t as good – but for a busy Sandwich Generation granny nanny, always on the run, it’s GREAT! Thanks for the fun idea. I’m off to try it for sweet shot Tuesday.
