Instagram Friday (11.30.2012)

I don't know about you, but I love Instagram Fridays. (which is why I post them here, hehe) I think it stems from my massive love for Instagram. Makes sense, right? It's actually one of the first apps I downloaded onto my new Samsung Galaxy player. XD Anyway, enough of that. Let's get on with it, shall we? "Oh crystal tree, oh crystal tree, your branches look like broccoli.." Selfie using the Galaxy player (which replaced my iPod. Yay Android!) Pepper the incredible snoring dog. Yarn explosion! Wheee! Dollar Tree decor at the office. :) Don't think this is right...hehehe! Newly completed owl hat! Annnnd that's a wrap! Hopefully good things to come next week. Lots of ideas :D Happy Friday!!

The Florida Book

I am super, super late on the bandwagon, but... Do you realize how awesome Shutterfly is?! I've heard good things about it, the products and whatnot, but I hadn't really played with it much until recently. When I bought my newest computer at Best Buy, I got a code for a free 8x8 hardcover photo book. I had absolutely no idea what to do with it, so I almost let it expire. (I know, I know.) Well, I got an email reminder about it, and decided to use some of my photos from my epic Florida adventure earlier this year to make a book. And you guys, it is AWESOME. I had SO much fun choosing the photos, picking the layouts, arranging everything just so. I even have a nifty photo-book preview to share with you!  It'll be at the bottom of the post, as it's making my formatting wonky. Anyway, the book is gorgeous, and ended up costing me around $8 for shipping. Not bad at all. I have another code I'm planning to use for a Christmas gift, I think. I can't w

Instagram Friday (11.23.2012)

Happy Friday! Did you all have a lovely Thanksgiving?? I hope so! I definitely did.  Hopefully, you have all survived Black Friday as well. I ventured out about noon-ish, and it was insane enough for me. Anyway, its once again time for the Instagram round up! :) Delicious cheesy goodness. A new (to me) pattern for owl hats! A Pinterest idea in the making... And the completed ornament wreath! This is such a wonky picture, haha! Happy Happy Thanksgiving! :) These were labels for some little gifts I took my grandparents on Thanksgiving day. Pepper missed me a lot on Thanksgiving, apparently. Daisy is not amused. ("I am not amused." - bonus points if you get that reference!!) And that's a wrap! Until next time! :)

Why I Will Die Alone With 57 Cats

I cleaned out some of my old emails today. In the process of doing that, I came across an email I had saved called 'Why I will die alone with 57 cats'. It was dated from February of this year, and contained three images which I had used to tell a crazy story via text message to one of my friends.  This is that story. (Well, sort of. I'm going to update it a bit as I've probably forgotten what I said originally, but the plot will be the same.) Once upon a Thursday, as I got into my car to leave work, I discovered there was a little ball of fluff underneath my seat. I paid it no mind, of course, because it was merely a ball of fluff. Imagine my surprise when I realized that this was no ordinary fluff ball. This one was a menacing, nasty, evil, serial killer fluff ball.  And it was out to get me.  As soon as I was able, I sent off a message to one of my closest friends, informing her of what was happening. She laughed! Can you believe it?! She laughed at

Instagram Friday (11.16.2012)

  Happy Friday people! Let’s get right to it, shall we? :) The Instagram version of the Christmas Show lights. Barnabus, the Scentsy bear. He was a birthday/Christmas present from my lovely friend. Pepper has this habit of “hiding” bones in the house, and naturally, we find them. She can’t ever find a spot good enough, poor thing! Instagram versions of some Southern Christmas Show pictures. Goofing with some monster stickers. XD I have a strange, strange brother. Daisy’s new sleeping arrangement. I got a sonic screwdriver from my brother for my birthday! My hair looks pretty amazing when I actually have the time to fix it properly. Indeed. It’s about that time to start up the Christmas crafts again. Bell critter ornaments are a good place to start! Bell critter army! You cannot go to Starbucks without Instagramming it. It’s just impossible. Mmmm, Popeyes. Looks like that’s a wrap for this week! I didn’t realize I had posted so many!

Southern Christmas Show

My mom and I had the opportunity to visit the Southern Christmas Show this weekend. We had a lot of fun, but boy was it CROWDED. There was some neat stuff to see, but honestly, it wasn’t worth fighting the crowds for. I think if we decide to go back next year we’re going to go on a weekday, to try to avoid some of that. I took my camera along (of course), and I snagged a few photos. I love these lights at the entrance. They’re so pretty and it’s such a nice effect. These snowflakes are projected onto the carpet near the main entrance. I love it! Large ornaments hung from the ceiling. One store was stocked exclusively with North Carolinian goods. I sampled a few things there – most were delicious! They have contests for different types of decorations. Trees, mantles, front doors, wreaths and table settings were the ones I saw. Some were meh, but there were some really, really gorgeous ones! This snowman tree was sponsored by Verizon, so it wasn’t in any contest

Veterans Day

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife. Who more than self their country loved And mercy more than life! America! America! May God thy gold refine Till all success be nobleness And every gain divine! (‘America The Beautiful’ by Katherine Lee Bates) To all Veterans, I just want to say this: Thank you. God bless each and every one of you!

Instagram Friday (11.9.2012)

It's Friday again! On a side note, can you believe we're already this far into November?! Anyway, it's once again time for the weekly Instagram roundup! Heeere we go!!  Post-Halloween candy shopping. Mmmm... Confession: I love the Lego game series. This is one of the best ones yet!! This one is really dark, but it's Pepper enjoying her Sunday afternoon nap.  I took this photo at 5:30am on Election Day - my earliest Instagram photo EVER! (I was a precinct official for the election, so that's the only reason I was up so early!) My election day outfit. It's currently my favorite outfit, because it's so comfy!  And that's all folks! Hope you enjoyed and check back next week for more! :)
