Picture Perfect Weekly #4 {Breaks, Bike Rides and Make Up}

January 27, 2013

 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 love affair/addiction with it. That has not changed with the beginning of the new year. 2013 here I come!

Won’t you please join me once a week by sharing your favorite pictures from your phone and Instagram?

It’s easy – share just one or many of your favorite shots from the week with a small description and link up your post.

Please, paste the badge into your post or sidebar.

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and of course, Instagram!

I look forward to seeing your treasured moments!!!


1-26 starbucks breakThis week we had our Starbucks stop on Thursday instead of our usual Tuesday. It was busy and we ended up sitting outside. The girls and I didn’t mind, it was a beautiful day. Have you had one of these Kind bars? They are so delicious and such a guilt-free snack!!!


1-26 bike rideOne morning, it was nice and cool out, little one wanted to go for a bike ride. So, we did. She put on her Ariel helmet, hopped on and took a ride around the neighborhood circle. I followed, as fast as I could with Gracie, our Yorkie. She likes to stop on every mailbox – which makes for slow going sometimes.


1-26 sick girlThen, the sickness hit and little one started complaining of a sore throat and green coop started coming out of her nose. It seems to have been short lived and she’s feeling much better. Of course, the boy has been complaining the past few days… You know how it goes, once it’s in the house everyone gets it.


1-26 sleepy girlNap time is a thing of the past for this four year old. But thanks to Sarah McLachlan and not feeling well she ended sleeping for an hour in the car when we went to pick up the kids from school one afternoon this past week! I realized after posting the picture that she’s drooling a little.


1-26 pasta dinnerA favorite Saturday night dinner – spaghetti, marinara, breaded chicken cutlets and mozzarella cheese – in front of the TV. I’ve been using the “healthy” Barilla pasta as much as I can get away with. I get some complaints but in the end everyone eats it.


1-26 makeup girlMiddle loves to play and experiment with make up. I get regular “make overs” and sometimes I return the favor. Thanks to a fabulous Smashbox kit my mom gave Middle for Christmas we have hours of fun. I love the creamy eyeliner that you put on with a special brush!

      We’ve had the doll heads too but my girls have always preferred mommy’s head to the dolls!!! 🙂

    That’s so fun for her with the makeup kit! I had to giggle about your dog wanting to stop at every mailbox. lol

      It’s pretty funny… except when I’m in a hurry. 🙂

    Miles has to sniff every lamppost and tree–very slow going.

    • Susi January 30, 2013 at 10:20 am

      Yup. Some pups just need to stop all of the time! 🙂

    Allie is so cute! Emmerson loves riding her bike. She waves at the neighbors as she rides by like she is in a parade. Such a ham! I love the makeup session pics. I can’t wait to do that with my girls.

    I’ll be linking up this weekend 🙂

      It’s so much fun. Middle has been doing it for years. She loves make up. Its a good thing my mom works for Estee Lauder. 🙂
