Week in Review: Week 16

Good morning! One of the major things that I’ve learned from blogging and photography is that we need to document our lives. It may seem a little narcissistic and a tad bit crazy but think about all those moments you wish you’d captured… Not the big planned moments but the little ones that seemed insignificant at the time, those are the ones that make up our lives… So my challenge to you, my friends is to get your cameras (cell phones count) and take pictures for one day out of your life. You don’t have to share them, just keep them. And make sure that you’re in at least one of those pictures!

Antenna {Living Outside the Stacks}

While walking my dog, Squeekerz, I noticed this antenna on top of my house and thought it’d be fun to filter the living daylights out of it, so I did. And it was.

Mushroom Salad {Living Outside the Stacks}

Have you ever had a salad so good that you dreamed about it and then had to go back for a second one to see if it really was that good or if it was just your imagination playing tricks on you? That is this salad. It’s a mushroom salad from our school dining facility (seriously, y’all I don’t know what that place is called but that salad is good enough that they ought to just name it after the salad).

Coffee and Denim Days {Living Outside the Stacks}

I put my coffee and denim to good use in recognition of Denim Day. “No” is a complete sentence. Parents, teach your kids to know and understand the power of that word. If either partner says “No” both people need to walk away.

Peace over violence. One on one, one by one.

 

Afghan {Living Outside the Stacks}

This is my latest project: an afghan for a school friend from Italy. Can I tell you how cool it is to know that something I created with my own two hands will be going to keep someone that I met over twenty some years ago cozy? There’s a special bond between military brats that can never be understood by the outside world.

Starbucks {Living Outside the Stacks}

The hubs took me to visit my home planet aka Starbucks on Saturday. It was a welcome treat.

Car {Living Outside the Stacks}

If your kid leaves her car at your house and you take it out for a spin without her knowledge and take pictures of yourself in her car and send them to her that’s not stealing, right?

Umbrellas {Living Outside the Stacks}

The ultra cool umbrella ceiling at Annie Laurie’s Antiques. I can see my girls doing this in their apartments. You know, if they ever moved out.

I’m linking up with:

  • 2014 Daily Selfie ~ Instagram: I’m doing this with a few of my Instagram friends. “Selfie” is open to interpretation, as long as there is part of your body in the photo, it counts. Use the hashtag #2014dailyselfie.
  • Life Rearranged ~ Instafriday: Share the stories behind the filtered pictures. Link up on Fridays.

What was the highlight of your week?

    I found it was the easiest way to keep a quick journal and, so, sometimes I tweet just to save a memory for myself. Silly kind of, huh? Hummie http://sn.im/28ux95m

    • No, that actually makes a lot of sense. Sometimes I share things on Facebook for the same reason.

    Great post. I do the same now to document my life just using Twitter. I “round up” my Twitter posts and photos each week and make a blog post of them. I found it was the easiest way to keep a quick journal and, so, sometimes I tweet just to save a memory for myself. Silly kind of, huh? Hummie

    • I wish I had done more of this when my kids were little, but I was just so focused on surviving 4 kids under the age of 5 and not letting them know that they outnumbered me and could stage a coup, you know? 🙂
