Picture Perfect Sundays #17

August 18, 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 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.

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!!!

It’s late and I’m tired. Little One came in three times during last night which is unusual for her. I sure felt it today and I’m ready to hit the sheets.

But not before I share my Instagram shots from the past week!!!

Here they are:

From top clockwise:

1) Evening sky after one of our daily thunderstorms as seen on our walk. Never get tired of it.

2) Kids being silly for photoadayaugust on Instagram.

3) Middle with her brothers aviators looking cool.

4) Finn our attack kitty trying to get me.

5) We had a visitor in our pool one morning this week. It was a harmless Southern Ringneck snake (yes, I researched it right away) and hubby saved it from a drowning death and put it out back. I still haven’t been back in the pool… because of the thunderstorms, not the snake!!! 🙂

6) Gracie our Yorkie making herself comfortable on Little One’s new beanbag chair.

7) I made chocolate chip cookies at 9 pm last night because my boy had a chocolate graving… and maybe I did too.

8) Little One enjoying her new bean bag chair.

9) Little One at dinner tonight enjoying daddy’s dinner more than her own. That’s a pork shank… or as we would call it in Germany, Schweinehaxe… Every once in a while it’s nice to go to a restaurant and eat German food and not cook it at home.

10) My girls looking pretty on the way to dinner.

11) All three of my offspring on our evening walk with the pooches. It doesn’t happen too often so I had to take a picture to commemorate the occasion.

This weeks statements:

1. I never ____ on a ____.

2. ______ is my favorite holiday.

3. I think my _____ is/are ______.

4. When there is a ____ I ____.


My answers:

1. I never throw up on a roller coaster.

2. Christmas is my favorite holiday.

3. I think my pets are amazing.

4. When there is a cold front I open my windows.


( All answers this week were lovingly provided by Middle Daughter. She loves to play along and help out with filling in!!! 🙂 )


Always In Threes

January 21, 2012

Ever since I discovered that my trusty point and shoot camera has a lot more settings than I ever thought, I’ve been busy taking pictures. Everywhere I go, I see a potential shot. And when I can’t stop or don’t have the camera with me I get a little mad. But that’s not what’s on my mind now.

The other day, my girls and I were out walking the dogs, enjoying another beautiful Florida Winter afternoon. The picture on top is one of the shots, I took. Three palm trees. And now, everywhere I turn there seems to be a grouping of three palm trees, sometimes more, sometimes less, but mostly three! There are a lot of palm trees in South Florida, as you can imagine. It’s the nature of the beast!!! 🙂

Anyways, it made me wonder if there is a reason for it or if the landscapers that designed the plots in all the different developments just liked the look of it. I do. I like the way three palm trees look together… either in a straight line, or in a triangle. It really doesn’t matter. Is that strange? Probably. But oh well, sometimes I get a little quirky.

Do you ever ponder about inane things? And what are they? I’d really like to know. 🙂

Happy weekend to all!!!


Happy Sunday…

December 4, 2011

Happy Sunday everyone…

I’ve done it… I finally put up my photo page!!! I worked on it for quite some time and wanted to tear out my hair more than once. Between trying to figure out what would work best for my needs and the many interruptions by my brood I was close to throwing in the towel more than once.

So glad I ignored that part of me and kept at it. I love taking and showing off pictures… of anything and everything. My kiddos and our “zoo” usually make the best subjects. Also, I live in beautiful Florida and just love what our surroundings have to offer.

Here’s to hoping you will enjoy getting a look at my life in pictures. 🙂 Let me know what you think!!! ( click here to see it! )

Wishing all of you a very happy 2. Advent!!!

Take care,
