Picture Perfect Weekly #21 {Time with my girls}

September 22, 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!!!

Here are a few pics from my weekend spent with my girls:

I’ve told you in my previous post that I was going to spend some one on one time with Little One.

After we sent hubby and the boy on their merry way, we headed to Tarjay for some groceries. She loved being my shopping helper and eagerly picked things out from the shelf and put them in the cart. She even managed to grab a gallon of milk and put it on the bottom of the cart. Such a strong little thing my princess.

I stocked up on my favorite coffee of the season – Pumpkin Spice – it seems that the K-cups in that flavor are running low and the only place I could find it are at our local Target. The minute we got home I brewed myself a cup too enjoy… 🙂

Today, we had lunch at McDonald’s. We woke up to gloomy, stormy skies and had to cancel our play ground plans. But I got lucky and was able to get an appointment with my favorite stylist for a quick trim. I was long overdue.

Mommy wasn’t the only one who got her hair cut. Little One got her first “big girl” shampoo and yes, that’s a chicken McNugget she’s holding in her hand.

And here we are, all done and Little One got a lollipop for sitting still and being a good girl. I was actually really surprised by how patient she was sitting and waiting for me to finish. I’d never taken her with me before because she doesn’t have the best track record with patiently waiting and sitting still!!!

After we got home from the hairdresser, I was finally able to walk the dogs since it had cleared up and the sun was shining. And then we had to head out to pick up Middle from her friends house where she had a sleepover. By the time we got close to home it was dinner time and I’ve been wanting some Pho in the worst way… so we stopped at 5 Spice and had us some nice Asian cuisine. Yum!!!

The best part of the night… getting the foot spa out and doing pedis. It was my turn first and the girls did a great job of scrubbing and smoothing. They thoroughly enjoyed their spa pedis and now they have blue colored toes!

Last but not least, a gratuitous photo of Daisy, middle’s hamster. She’s so cute and sweet and we just love to play with her.

Picture Perfect Weekly #19

September 9, 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 called… Picture Perfect Weekly!!! (I changed it from Sunday to weekly so it’s more clear that you can link up for the whole week and not just on Sundays!)
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.

Here are some of my memories from the past 2 weeks:

 

Clockwise from top left:

1. My best friend came to visit over Labor Day weekend and we went to the west coast to visit my mom. Girls only. Here we are on Ft. Myers Beach enjoying the beautiful sunset.

2. A pelican. I took this pic for my friend Brenda who loves pelicans.

3. Little gator. We stopped at a rest area on Alligator Alley to see if there were any gators in the canal and this little fellow was waiting for us. My friend was super excited to see one in the wild. 🙂

4. Squirrel buddies. Saw these two playing on one of my morning walks. They were having the time of their lives. So fun.

5. You are never too old for friendship bracelets. I wear mine proudly.

6. This yummy Caprese salad was waiting for me when we got home after our fun weekend away. My hubby rocks.

7. Little One ready to go on our morning power walk. I finally got back into the swing of things. Much needed.

8. My boy at the pediatrician’s office. He was home sick most of the week. Poor thing… thankfully he is on the mend.

9. Middle playing with one of the masks at Cracker Barrel. Ready for a masquerade ball!!!

10. I made another hair bow. This time with all of her hair in a pony not just part of it. She loved it.

11. Dancing at the birthday party we went to today and showing off her moves.

12. After her first performance in her dance uniform… only thing missing… her silver pom poms. She’s my little dancing queen.

13. Meet Bertram, one of two new family members. He’s my boy’s new gerbil. Cute and funny little critter.

14. And this is Daisy saying “Hello”. Middle adopted her from school… the science lab had an over abundance of little hamsters if you know what I mean!!! 😉

15. Little One practicing her chopsticks skills at a favorite sushi restaurant.

16. Yes, I started rereading Twilight. Only two more months until Breaking Dawn Pt. 2 comes out… I’m super excited after seeing the new trailer at the VMAs on Thursday!!! Once a Twihard, always a Twihard!!! 😉
