Instagram Week in Review

Hello. How was your weekend? Mine was OK. I started watching two new shows: The Lottery and MANH(A)TTAN. I’m  not sure how I feel about them yet. For the record, I’m still trying to work out my feelings about Extant. I’m happy that these new shows require thought and emotional involvement. I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of the hot mess that is “reality” TV.

I haven’t been reading much. Usually, I try to read a classic novel during the summer but I have been so unmotivated this year. Not sure what the problem is but I need to get myself in gear, summer’s almost over. Every time I write one of these weekly reviews I’m reminded of how quickly it all passes… And how much closer I am to my babies going off to college. *weeps*

Photography experiment. I decided to try photographing the world in black and white. It makes for a lot of drama. It’s incredibly fun but it requires forethought. You can see the rest of the pictures by clicking here.

The Dome. A once in lifetime shot of the dome on Academic Hall at Southeast Missouri State University. Almost eye level. Cool, no?

Major score. Can you believe I paid $2.50 for this dress? Yep! I bought it at JC Penney off the sale rack. I’m a major fan of the dress over jeans look. I know it doesn’t work for everyone but it works for me.

New skills. My nephew is learning the fine art of hat spinning.

Coffee and Ssekos. I’m desperately trying to get one of my coffee pictures regrammed by coffeenclothes. If it happened to be one of the pictures with my Sseko sandals, that’d be a bonus.

Something new. Whenever we go grocery shopping, the girls and I like to try something new as a “reward” for surviving the trip. It tastes like bubble gum and some sort of incredibly sweet fruit. I’m not a fan.

If you’re on Instagram, don’t forget to follow {I’m 4daenelt} and give me a yell in the comments so I know you’re there and can follow you too.

What’s on your summer reading list?

Happy Fist Bump Friday

Fist Bump Friday {Living Outside the Stacks}

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I like to do a little something called “Fist Bump Friday”, where I encourage my friends to share something that made them happy during the week. Sometimes we get so bogged down with life and the crazy that comes with it that we forget to acknowledge the good things. So I thought it’d be fun if we all shared and celebrated together.

This week I’m happy for McDonald’s Peaches and Cream Pie. Don’t laugh. That’s some good pie. And it was made even better because The Boy called me at lunch time and said “Hey, Mom! Come have lunch with your son.”

So please, share your good news in the comments below. Remember, it doesn’t have to be big or earth shattering. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.

Throwback Thursday: Photography, the Beginning

My husband walking through an underground tunnel…

And this is where it all began. My husband and I were walking through an underground tunnel and the light was just incredible. I snapped and a hobby was born. It wasn’t until a few years later that The Hubs surprised me with a Nikon D3100, but it all began with a cell phone, timing, and light. Yes, that picture was taken with a cell phone.

Where did your hobby begin?
