I joined Instagram this week. I know, I’m a little slow on the uptake. I’m @binkiesandbriefcases over there if you want to follow along.
I’m new to the whole smartphone phenomenon, but I like to think I’m catching on fast. I really love being able to capture everyday moments more easily.
So here is a peak into our week as told by the pictures on my phone:
That picture of my girls in their braids might be my favorite photo of all time.
I tried to make more homemade meals this week and focus on saving money. I roasted a chicken at the beginning of the week and made and canned chicken noodle soup out of the left-overs. The pots on the stove are a pretty decent lunch, if I do say so myself, made entirely out of leftovers I was just reheating. The pasta dish is my one pot Italian Festival Bake recipe.
Nick has been very into trying to learn to play the guitar lately.
He also started tennis camp this week and really loves it. It’s the free one I talked about in this post. We can walk there from our house. It has been pretty unbelievably great.
My hydrangeas are still blooming. They are my favorites, they make me happy.
We went to a park down the street several times this week. I love this park. It is shaded, there are 3 playgrounds, a little stream, a big picnic area, and actual bathrooms. Inexplicably, it is also always empty. Seriously, no matter what time of day we go there is never anyone there. The most crowded I have ever seen it was two additional families. It’s very strange, but also delightful.
It’s nice to be able to have some daylight left when Eddie gets home this time of year. We’ve been having a lot of late bedtimes to stay up and have extra time with daddy.
