Picture Perfect Weekly #2 {The Things Only Edition}

January 12, 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!!!

Looking at my images from this past week made me realize that I only took pictures of things, not of my fave subjects – my kids. Guess, I need to do better this coming week!!!

This was the first week back in school after the Winter break and it took some getting used to the early mornings again. But then again, when will I ever get used to them – I love to sleep in!!!

I spent a few hours each on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday steam-cleaning all my carpets; including the stairs. It looks so good now and I hope, it stays that way at least for a little while. A big “Thank you” to my neighbor for the new steam cleaner. Bissell rocks.

We also celebrated hubby’s birthday with a fabulous dinner out and a special breakfast made by me!

Today, the girls and I went to a friend’s house-warming party. It was so nice to sit around and talk and see everyone from the kids’ old school again. I miss walking to school and talking with the other moms and catching up. So, this was nice. There were a lot of kids running around and they all had a blast. And my friend, who also happens to be from Germany, made a ton of delicious food. When we got home the girls were so pooped they went straight to bed. I’d call that a successful party. I also had a glass of Moscato for the first time and was pleasantly surprised that I liked it.

I’m trying out the new slide show feature for the first time. Hope you enjoy!

    Hi Susi, thanks for stopping by my blog. I quite like Instagram, too. Check out my weekly Wordless Wednesday linkys – all Instagram photos 🙂 So, I took the liberty of linking up my latest one 🙂

    I so miss my weekly chai latte that I used to get at Starbuck’s when I was working. We don’t have a Starbuck’s in my little town….I know – the horror!
    looks like a fun week – and love the slideshow feature. that was so cool!

    • Susi January 16, 2013 at 12:27 pm

      Glad you like the slideshow feature, it works pretty well! Even though we have a ton of Starbucks around I’d still prefer making my own Chai and enjoying it at home!!! 😉

    I also love instagram… although I don’t use it QUITE as often as you do .. 🙂
    I’m not sure how to link up my instagram pic into a post…..

    Chai tea latte…… mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

      Brenda, you know, I’m addicted to IG!!! You can use followgram.me to download the pics to your pc (that’s what I do) or use a mobile app for blogger and share it directly to your blog that way. I’ve done that as well with my blogger photo blog!!! And yes, Chai is awesome!
