Picture Perfect Weekly #8 {Girls Weekend}

February 25, 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!!!

It’s not so easy working on a post while the Oscars are on. I keep getting distracted. Can you blame a gal? Lots of eye candy… Don’t guys just look so fine in a tuxedo? (The Avengers on stage together, in tuxedos… where can I get more of that???) 🙂


It’s now Monday night and Once Upon a Time is on in the background. It’s late and I’m tuckered out. I had lots of catching up to do today after our girls weekend away. There were loads and loads of laundry to be done, groceries to be bought, kids to be picked up from school and homework to be supervised. Hubby cooked dinner, so I only had clean up and then bath time, and a few lullabies.

The girls and I went on a quick weekend getaway to spend some time with my mom. We love our girl time and I like having my mom’s home cooking which I indulged in way too much!!! After some fun at a local park in Ft. Myers, I went down memory lane during our drive to the European food market. I showed the girls the college I went to, the high school I graduated from, the middle school their aunt went to and the place that once was Cafe de Paris. The restaurant my parents bought and were it all began – our journey, my journey to becoming a US citizen.

    The cat hiding under the blankets reminds me of my dogs. The kids are always trying to cover them up.

      Jessica, I have a picture of our late dog Macy with her head on a pillow and covered in blankets. 🙂

    You’re so right. There’s nothing like home cooking. Glad you all had a great visit!

    I swear I gain 20 pounds when I visit my Moms.

      Thanks, Beth Ann. Rollmops is an acquired taste – or so I’ve been told. The husband won’t touch it. 🙂
