Instagram Sunday {August 11}

August 10, 2013

How is it that sometimes you truly realize just how fast time moves?

Another week over and with it came the end of summer camp, for myself, as well as the kiddos. So, while I was busy trying to ignore this head cold that has been plaguing me all week, we were busy packing up a summer of fun into boxes, to be stored away until next year. We were so busy in fact, that I forgot to take a picture of the pile of boxes stuffed into a corner of the room… It shocked even me! This Instagram junkie forgot to gram an “important” moment in my week.

Oh well, there were plenty of others I did manage to capture. The theme this week seems to have been pool fun. The girls were on a mission to enjoy the pool for as many hours as they could while the sun was shining and not a rain cloud was to be seen. They even managed to annoy me enough to let them go for not just one, but two, night swims, when all I wanted was to crawl into bed and sleep until I felt better.

For our last Fabulous Friday, little one dressed up as Sleeping Beauty. Her little friends at camp even formed a little princess clique for the day and went everywhere together, chanting: “Princesses are the best.” It was petty adorable.

As a reward for a job well done, hubby, the girls and I went out for dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant while the boy went to his friend’s house for the weekend. The girls took full advantage of having daddy to themselves.

And what’s a week on Instagram without some food shots. I managed to bake some yummy almond cookies. They are a favorite of the boys but I like to enjoy one or two with a cup of tea in the afternoon myself. And since we had a somewhat lazy day today, I threw together a quick and easy tossed pasta dinner that was simply delicious.

And while today was not as busy as some days are, I was still productive. I did some laundry, made lunch and dinner and took care of kitchen clean-up and did some house-keeping in my blog home. Yes, I changed the looks up a bit. I can’t help myself. I used to move our furniture around to change things up at home (driving hubby crazy in the process) – now I prefer to change things up here. On top of the changes you can see, I also did some cleaning up in the background. I updated my About Me page, changed up the navigation a bit by adding some drop downs on the menu and added an author box to the end of my posts. This blog is always a work in progress but I enjoy working on it.

    Love all your pictures. The one of your cat made me laugh so much!

      The picture is cute but when she did it my heart wanted to stop. She always balances on the stair rail, even two stories up. I’m always afraid she’s going to fall.

    Sounds like you had a great week, Susi – except for the head cold, which you hopefully got rid of. Changing things on your site, hmmm – sounds a lot like me – I like it! Gotta think about the author bio at the bottom. But now I need to change your button on mine, still got the old one 😉

      Sorry about that, Claudia. Hope it’s not too much of a pain to change the button. I’ve been meaning to add the author box for a while but just hadn’t gotten around to it.

    You’re lucky that you know how to tweak things on your blog. I know nothing about that stuff!!!! I have to hire help all the time!

      Liz, I needed to learn this stuff because I can’t afford to pay people to do it for me, plus it’s actually fun. I want to learn more but I’m good with what I can do for now! Shoot me a line if you ever need any help! 🙂
