Hello lovely people and happy Friday!
So I’ve decided that Friday’s are a perfect day to do a little weekly wrap up via my Instagram photos! I’ve had Instagram for about 6 months now and in the past month or so I have decided that, in order to help myself see the beauty in my world, I will take at least one photo a day and post it to Instagram.
I didn’t really realize how much fun I had this weekend until I started gathering all the photos for you here. What a brilliant way to find the beauty!
So here you are, my super glamorous life via my Instagram photos.
Nothing like a nice cup of tea to get you through an afternoon at the office.
My friend decided that we should throw ourselves a 2nd Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful success, so much fun!
After the above Apples to Apples game my cards told me that I am apparently “Obscenely Fun.” Yeah…I’m that awesome.
Brunch? Yes! Always in! I’ll bring scones! I made strawberry scones and some lemon curd to spread on top…delicious!
I had an eating day, the night after brunch we went to a food truck party that was a fundraiser to support a local food bank. I got a pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. My sister, nephew and I all had popsicles for dessert. Everything was delicious!
So I take a lot of pictures of food. Might as well confess that this muffin and tea was definitely my dinner while I took some time to myself to read.
April 30th was Oatmeal Cookie Day. I wasn’t going to bake that night but I was so inspired that all I could think about was making an Oatmeal Cream Pie cupcake. Success! (recipe to come in the future).
Those cupcakes needed a place to go. My church is currently doing a series called Swingsets and Suffering. There is a lot of truth in it and a lot of painful moments, but it’s such a healthy way for the community to grow!
Hair bow! I made this one following a tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. A tutorial for this hairstyle to come soon.
At work we have these editing keyboards that are all colorful and fun! While I was sitting in front of them the other day I realized how beautiful they are.
One of the ladies at work always gives out these little chicks for Easter. My friend just gave me the yellow one cause she’s going to be gone for a few weeks. Now I have a whole family!
Mocha Cupcakes!?! Yup, I did it. Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache filling and coffee cream cheese frosting. The perfect thing to bring to book club.
You know how book clubs are, right? We really like wine! I brought the makings for a blackberry-lime sangria. It was so light and refreshing.
Book club was such a great night last night. A bunch of fabulous women gathered together, it’s my favorite Thursday of the month for sure! (I’ll be doing a little book club wrap up in a few days).
And a great end to the week of Instagram. My mini bundt pan came in the mail! I’m so excited to experiment with it! (I believe I will be making Mexican chocolate mini bundts for Cinco de Mayo.)
So there you have it. My humble life through the eyes of my cell phone camera! I really enjoyed wrapping this all up, it reminded me how many special moments I’ve had this week. If you have a smart phone I would highly suggest downloading Instagram and taking the challenge to look at your life through a different lens, it can really change your perspective.
