In a fog… {Picture Perfect Weekly #25}

October 21, 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 weekly link up called… Picture Perfect Weekly!!!
I would love it if you would join me and share the treasures you captured with Instagram/phone camera/any other camera during the past week. I see a lot of fantastic, cute, funny and happy moments every day.

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

Just paste the badge into your post or sidebar and follow me… quick and simple. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and of course, Instagram!

I look forward to seeing your treasured moments!!!

Some of you, if not most, know by now that my week has been a bit of a blur for me. I’ve been down for the count with a cold. I thought, I was getting better on Thursday but woke up feeling worse than ever on Friday. I feel like I’m in a fog and can’t seem to shake it. Ugh…

So, last night when I went to bed just before I passed out completely a thought popped into my head. “You didn’t do your Picture Perfect Weekly link up.” I promised myself to do it first thing in the morning and it faded away. Of course, this morning I woke up with cotton candy stuffed into my head and didn’t remember until I pretty much drowned my first cup of coffee.

So, here, after some delay is my week in Instagram pics…

I had animal encounters, some of the pet variety, some not. I love the shot I managed to get of the stork. Most of the wild birds around here tend to take off when I come by with my dogs. This one stayed and let me take a picture.

I joined little one one morning and painted my first watercolor painting in a long while. It was fun. I may not be very good at it but I have always enjoyed art.

No week would be complete without some shots of my girls. They don’t need any prompting and it is actually hard for me to get natural poses out of them… they see my phone or the camera and start posing for me. I do love catching their sisterly bond right now… it’s such a wonderful thing to see and often takes me back in time to my own childhood and my time with my little sister.

A few food shots also made an appearance this week. There’s the slow cooker chili I made yesterday. I had been wanting some for a few days and usually hubby makes the chili in our house. But dang it, I wanted to see if I could and felt like “cooking” even though I’m not feeling well. I also made chocolate cupcakes because little one wanted to bake. Someone stole one before I could take a pic of the whole tray!!! 🙂 We went for Pho because it was just what the doctor ordered. It’s our replacement for chicken noodle soup!!! And I had pumpkin frozen yogurt for the first time. What a treat for my sore throat. It was delicious.

And lastly, my new “toy”. I’m over the moon about it. Love, love, love my new camera. It feels so right in my hands. In a way, I finally understand hubby’s obsession with guitars and how you need a specific one to get a specific sound/play a specific song. I can’t wait to get my hands on some new lenses… But will have to be a good girl and wait for Hanukkah Harry or Santa. And that’s okay, after all Santa has already been here!!!! 🙂

Now it’s your turn. What have you been up to? Do you have any picture to share?

xo, Susi

      Thanks so much Nanci and thanks for linking up. It’s become a habit and obsession to document everything with a photograph!!! 🙂

    What did I do before camera phones??

    The hubs now knows to stop and wait for the snap! Like today, when I found out what the twins had been doing instead of napping (when I saw this post, I had to link up)!

    That chili looks yummy, btw!!

      That’s awesome. Thanks for linking. And yes, my family knows to let me get a pic first!!! 🙂

    That’s kinda funny that they go into instant pose mode. 🙂 Feel better!!

      Liz, thanks. I did wake up feeling mostly normal again today. And it is mostly funny but sometimes I just want to catch a moment and they see the camera and it’s gone. 🙂

    I love how happy your kids are always in your pictures.

      Stasha, thanks. I do capture a lot of their smiles but it’s easy. They are very happy girls…

    stork shot is so so amazing.

    your girls always bring a smile to my face. They radiate joy!
