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!

Chocolate Lovers Unite {Wordless Wednesday}

January 1, 2013

fonduefunWe spent New Year’s Eve with my mom, just like we have the past few years. As usual, a smorgasbord of goodies was waiting for us. The kids’ favorite (mine as well) was by far the chocolate fondue. I couldn’t stop going back for more and finally had to  clean up and put all the food away. A new tradition may have been born!!!

~Linking up with Hilary at FeelingBeachie for Wordless Wednesday!~

Picture Perfect Weekly #34 {Last one of the Year}

December 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!!!

It’s hard to imagine that I’ve been doing my Picture Perfect Weekly hop for 34 weeks now and we are at years end. This will be the last one for this year. I’m going to take next week off and then come back in the New Year. I’m going to start fresh again and start counting from week one. It’ll be the Picture Perfect Weekly 2013 edition… 52 weeks of picture perfect moments!!! I hope, you’ll join me!!!

Here are a few moments from my week. It’s been a bit busy around here. The boy had is first ever midterms last week and his schedule was all wacko so I had to do quite a few double runs to school and back. And of course I’m in full prep mode for Christmas. I still have a few things to get and all the presents still need wrapping! Anyone want to help? 🙂 I always tell myself that next year I’ll start shopping earlier and get things done quicker and then time just gets away from me.

12-22 gingerbread boyWe didn’t make gingerbread houses this year but I found a kit for gingerbread men. The boy was the first one to decorate one. He also proceeded to eat his right away!!!

12-22 cookie decorator

Little one was my number one decorator yesterday. We had to make a second batch of Christmas cookies so we could leave some for Santa Christmas Eve!

12-22 more Christmas cookies

 I made a lot of candy cane cookies. For some reason I really like them this year!

12-22 big Christmas tree

This tree is in front of the Marriot hotel here in Boca. It’s absolutely beautiful and so big. See Little One in front of it?

12-22 reflections

I named this one Reflections. The lake was like glass one morning this past week and I loved the way the trees were a mirror imagine. I chose a black and white filter because it just seemed to fit with the barren trees.
