Instaweek, August 12-18, 2012

This week we read on the couch, finished (and reviewed) a good book, found a firefighter version of Waldo, smiled at the fire department, found the “hose,” built things, looked sleepy after a nap, and did a rain dance.

Lost a tooth, hung out with snoopy, looked over Lake Erie, road bumper cars, didn’t pass out while riding swings high in the air, got suckered into the scrambler, fell asleep on the way home, and looked at photos from 27 years ago.

We were lovey on a date night, gave one of the birds the stink-eye for being mean, passed out on the couch after a day at Nina’s house, had a glass of wine and thought of friends, cleaned my desk, wrote, had a deck night with friends, made buffalo dip and had Canadian wine.

We took blurry, dark pictures, went to the car show, pondered deep fried kool-aid (and didn’t go with it), took bright, happy pictures, ate cupcakes, seriously ate cupcakes, licked frosting, and avoided the bath cup in the cake.

And took one last Saturday night of summer photo.

What did you Instagram this week? Which photo was your favorite?

Instaweek, August 5-11

Instaweek, August 5-11

It was a week of traveling home while looking at my husband’s elbow, sitting next to a cute boy on a train, waiting for trains, driving through tunnels, avoiding the line at Starbucks, enjoying roadtrip time together, rain clouds, sunsets and bridges. It was a week of shaking my head at what grandparents buy for grandkids, loving being home with my boys, giving swag to my Uncle Dog, and swag to my own kids. Of post office visits. Of the sheer joy of finding out a local hometown restaurant got buffalo chicken salads! Of watching the news. Of new water bottles. Of heart stickers, of hand-holding. Of waiting. Of beautiful city moments. Of kisses. Of deciding to take a photo of #ustoday whenever we’re together. Of weird clouds. Of funny faces. Of firefighter boots, and future firefighters, and firefighter love. Of homemade pizza of the #nightandday variety. Of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Of us.

It was a busy week, a good week.
