I can.not believe it’s Friday already again!

Didn’t we just do this?!

If you’re new here, InstaFriday is a way to share the silly everyday moments of your life using only cell phone pictures!

Join in!  It’s really fun!  Promise!


Bathing suits.


Summer happiness.

I saw an ad that had a hand with gray nail polish.

I thought “Hey, that looks fun!”

Except I think it makes me look like my hand belongs on a corpse.

Wanna know how to get people to ooh and aah and break out into a wide smile?

Have your boy wear a cape.

To Costco.

Wanna know something gross?

I love love love Weinerschnitzel.

Love the chili cheese goodness.

But I never ever ever eat it.

Not out of some moral stance or any other such thing.

Just pure laziness.

Because the one in town doesn’t have a drive thru.

And I don’t want to get out of the car.

I realize how pathetic that is.

Roy G. Biv.

Fabric in happy rainbow colors.

Lucy in a shoe store = Heaven.

The girl is obsessed with shoes.


I did nothing to create this.  She’s always loved shoes for as long as she could convey it to us.

“Boots!”  she says.

So crazy cute.  Her little chubber thighs and toddler cowboy boots.

Until I saw the price tag.


Anyone else think they need to change their name to Payle$$?

Okay, not it’s your turn to link up!  And don’t forget that you are encouraged to leave visit and leave a comment on two other linker-uppers!

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.

    LOVE the cape. My oldest is obsessed with shoes too. Those boots are adorable but the price…ouch!

  4. 4

    You may or may not see me shoving a chili cheese dog from DQ in my face on my InstaFriday post, just sayin.

    My Lexie loooooves shoes too! The girl drives me crazy putting shoes on all day, taking them off in random places, and then putting new ones on! We are gonna be in trouble when our girls are teens.

    thanks for hosting!

    I do like your polish! I tried black and grey (not together of course) for the first time this year and it took me a bit to get used to that look, but then I really liked it. I really like Sally Hansen complete manicure in Commander in Chic, it’s a taupe-y grey.

    Love the cape at Costco–sometimes you need a bit of superhero to navigate a place like that. :)

    The cape photo is really fun! And I think the gray doesn’t look bad – just probably takes some getting used to.

    I’m working on my post to link up. I just loved yours this week! I feel like you are crazy kindred spirit :) I bought gray nail polish this week too, but I haven’t found time to paint my nails yet. The first photo is so adorable!

    I got my iPhone a couple of months ago. I’ve been hooked on Instagram ever since. I had a ton of pictures saved up for a post when I ran across your blog and link up. So, I finally joined in today!

    Love the cape! My boy (21 months) loves the cape too … it must be something their born with because I don’t know where he got it from. Maybe he saw another little boy with a cape? Sometimes I wish I could wear a cape too, me and him cruising the grocery store in our capes would be awesome!

    Hi! I just found your website, and am so glad you host an instagram party, I love Instagram! I love your chubby legged cowboy boot photo. My children have grown out of the chubby leg stage, and I miss squeezing those little legs so much.

  12. 12

    I tried the grey nail polish too and had the same thought…I looked like a corpse! Thanks for hosting the link up. Have a great weekend!

  13. 13

    I like the grey too! And Holly, up there on comment 6 is right. I love my “commander in chic” polish. Not quite grey, not quite brown. It’s my fav!

    A.) LOVE gray nail polish
    B.) LOVE the cape
    C.) I just got Leila some really cute back to school leather flats at Nordstrom for cheaper than those adorable Payle$$ boots. I love Payless, but yeah – they’ve gotten pricey.

    Those lil’ boots are so cute! It’s so cute that she loves shoes already – but lots of trouble someday for mom & dad! Thanks for creating this wonderful link party – I enjoy linking up & look forward to it every week!

    I laughed when you said it was pathetic that you didn’t want to get out of the car to go to Weinerschnitzel because I too, am pathetic. We have several convenience stores in our lovely town that have drive thrus so that I don’t even have to get out of the car to get my coke anymore. Yeah, I need the exercise since I choose to drink coke but I don’t get it, I even drive somewhat out of the way to these stores. The benefit is twofold though, I don’t have to get out of the car and I don’t have to support the jerk that owns the large chain of convenience stores here!!! I am going to have to join up with this next week as it’s been a while since I’ve used my Instagram. However, you have inspired me!!!

    Oh, I LOVE the first photo! How cute! And the grey nailpolish, I had some too! I loved it, but then it got clumpy… really fast! It like…dried super fast, and I am not a fast painter… lol. I tried adding some fingernail polish remover (I googled it) and it really DID NOT HELP. Maybe it was the brand I used… lol
