I have recently begun using the Instagram app on my iPhone.
I am under the name Lilbrownhouse if anyone wants to follow me!
It is kind of fun – taking pictures with your phone and making them look
cool with effects. I am still getting the hang of it though – mine aren’t all that cool
Here are some pictures I have put on my phone in the last couple weeks,
some of them are Instagram, some are not.. you will be able to tell the difference..
Yes, this is from last week..
Spring in North Idaho is not for the faint of heart.
Oh yes I did…
And this next picture should show just how much I love you all..
And trust you not to pin me…..
I am sure I am at the top of your “Dignified Blogger I Want To Follow” list now.
Highlighting my own hair was an exciting and harrowing adventure -
Topped only by my experience with childbirth and the time I had all
4 wisdom teeth pulled at once.
And did it work? Did I achieve lovely soft blonde highlights in all the right places?
I got very blonde..
With dark roots.
And dark hair ends..
But I can live with it! It doesn’t look as bad in real life as it does here.
The difference between the top and bottom colors is not that pronounced.
The good news is I am saving my money so I can go get
it done professionally next month.
On a completely different note – here is what it looks like in my Monday team meeting at work.
We meet together every Monday for 5 to 7 hours.
There are 10 of us on the team and we all have tons of things going on
so these meetings are vital and full of information.
And paper… lots of paper.
At least we get to sit in comfy seats! This is one of the classrooms at the church.
We are currently celebrating birthday week here – mine and my daughters are 2 days apart
and my husbands is a week later. We all got together for dinner and then had dessert,
coffee and a game of Catan. What a great way to spend an evening.
We also got to do FaceTime with my daughter and her family in Tennessee.
Here is a screenshot of my two grandaughters who haven’t seen each
other in person for a year – there was much shrieking and giggling going on!
My grandson made me a birthday card -
I love the flower he put in beside the black Ewok just for me-)
There is nothing better than a hand made card from a child – I love it!
Here I am trying to show off the scarf I got from my daughter…
I was trying to make the photo look cool with the Instagram effects.
My eyes are not creepy and wrinkly on top like that -
Last time I ever use that blur/soften effect on my face!
The picture reminds me of some of those 70′s British bands that
would dress up in old military outfits and sing words I didn’t understand..
Now here you see the blur feature being used on a non-living subject – much better!
I bought these jars at Walmart this week and I am trying them out
as canisters. I kind of like them – what do you think?
Hope you all are looking forward to your weekend -
My sisters and Mom are taking me out for my birthday on Saturday,
I like to spread my birthday out as long as I can!!
