Instagram Sundays #12

July 7, 2012

I love to share photos and I love Instagram. I was one happy little blogger when Instagram became available on Android devices. I jumped, no leaped, on that particular social media bandwagon and have developed a new love affair/addiction with it. Because of this love affair I have decided to start my very own Sunday link up aptly called… Instagram Sundays!!!

I would love it if you would join me and share the treasures you captured with Instagram during the past week. I see a lot of fantastic, cute, funny and happy moments every day.

Share just one or many of your Instagrams and add a small description.

Just paste the badge into your post or sidebar and maybe follow me… quick and simple.

My Instagram user name is of course, bocafrau!!! 🙂

I look forward to seeing your Instagrams on the big screen!!!


Here are my favorite Instagrams of the week:

 I made Caprese salad  for dinner one night this week, with fresh basil that I have grown. Pretty proud of the fact that my basil plant is thriving and I haven’t killed it, yet!

 One night this week, we decided we wanted breakfast for dinner so I went out and finally bought us a waffle iron… yum.

My first attempt at a flag cake for my first Independence Day as an American Citizen.

Middle on her way to camp. It was pajama day. She rolled out of bed and was ready to go. She was very comfy all day.

Middle again… excited over her One Direction album. Daddy downloaded it for her from Amazon Music and she hasn’t stopped singing since.

Middle showing of her handstands in the pool… she’s getting so good at it and can hold the pose for quite some time.

Little One on one of our nightly strolls. Wearing big sisters heels and being a diva.

Little One with ear plugs the neighbor gave her for 4 th of July fireworks. They helped for a while but we still had to go in early… she doesn’t like the loud noise at all. Fireworks and thunderstorms freak her out.

My boys at our weekly dinner out. Not happy about me taking pictures. I guess, you could say I’m a little snap happy. 🙂

Hubby restringing his twelve string… he did not have a good time doing it. It’s double the work and not easy. He let a few choice swear words fly. So worth it. I love when he plays that guitar. It is by far my favorite out of his collection.

 A self-portrait. I’m doing the photo a day Instagram challenge this month  and this was one of the prompts so far.

Love all the beautiful, blooming shrubs and trees in my neighborhood. So pretty. A friend told me this may be Crape Myrtle. Whatever it is, it’s so pretty and smells divine.

And I leave you with another gorgeous sunset shot taken during the week. Love, love the colors.

Okay, there you have it.

Now, it’s your turn. Can’t wait to see what you “shot” this week.

xo, Susi

      Feel free to attach a post with pics. It doesn’t have to be Instagram… as long as they are pics from your week!!! Thanks for stopping by.

  • Stasha July 8, 2012 at 1:07 am

    This post is making me so hungry 🙂 love them.

    • Susi July 8, 2012 at 12:18 pm

      Thanks, Stasha. I realized how many food pictures I always take! I guess, that’s the side effect of being a bit of a foodie.

    I’m enjoying your Instagram pics through the week, Susi! I hope you are enjoying the #photoaday prompts. This week I have one picture to share, but I realized it’s not Instagram format. But it may as well be, except the pictures were put into a collage with the app PhotoGrid. I’ll link it anyway, and I hope it’s okay.

    • Susi July 8, 2012 at 12:16 pm

      I love using PhotoGrid. And it’s no problem if it’s not on Instagram… I’m thinking about re-naming the link up so it’s more inclusive. Still working on that though! Have a great weekend.

    I love looking at your pictures every week 🙂
    le sigh – I wish I had instagram. and a smart phone.
    beautiful self portrait.

    • Susi July 8, 2012 at 11:11 pm

      I’m in the process of changing the format a little… it’ll be all inclusive so to speak. All pictures, any camera!!! Keep your fingers crossed, Christmas is only 6 months away! 🙂

  • Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell July 8, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    What a happy week you’ve had over there! Your self-portrait is just too cute, by the way. I also quite like the way you eat at your house. 🙂

    • Susi July 8, 2012 at 11:08 pm

      Thank you and thank you. It was a pretty nice week. And the food is usually pretty good around here… we are foodies!!!

  • Rach (DonutsMama) July 8, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Cool! I just have to figure out how to download my instagram photos onto my computer!

    • Susi July 8, 2012 at 11:08 pm

      I use followgram to download them to my picture folder. Nice and easy! 🙂

  • Megan Broutian July 9, 2012 at 12:48 am

    Every time I see your pics Susi, I resolve to take some myself, during the week… and of course, that’s always relegated to the back burner. Love the tomatoes, looks so professional!

    • Susi July 9, 2012 at 9:50 pm

      Thanks. I love taking pictures and always have a camera handy!I love food presentation and have just recently started “food photography” it’s so fun and ties in perfectly with my love of cooking and baking.

  • Jessica July 9, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    I suddenly have the desire to jump in a pool and eat a big red, white, and blue cake…

    • Susi July 9, 2012 at 9:48 pm

      I did jump into the pool late this afternoon. I needed to just relax and float for a bit. The cake is gone, so until I make another one I won’t be eating any!!! 🙂

  • Jamie July 9, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Ummmm why are we not Instagram friends?!? I’ll add mine tomorrow from the post that’s coming in the morning!!

    • Susi July 9, 2012 at 11:08 pm

      Sounds great and I don’t know. We need to rectify that asap!!! 🙂

  • Melissa July 10, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    As a new Instagram convert, I love this link-up idea!!

    Off to take some insta-pics so I can “see” you on Sunday!

    • Susi July 10, 2012 at 11:01 pm

      Awesome. See you then… I can’t wait.
