Last Week in Instagram Snaps

5.25.2011

I just spent this entire day making a new blog banner. That's not entirely true.. I spent this entire day making 3 blog banners and left each one up for an hour before taking it down to make a new one. This one's staying. I really wanted something light and airy and I feel like this is it.

This past week has been a little odd for me. I'm trying to learn how to fit exercise into my schedule. Every few months I start doing this and end up failing miserably. This time I am not failing. Seriously, it just needs to happen. Just getting that 2 hour block of time into my day has proven to be a bit difficult, but that's ok, I'll deal.

This is what last week looked like in Instagram (iPhone app) photos. I think I like this type of post. I might make it a regular! The week in Instagram Snaps. I like it.

1. & 2. On Monday I started working out (hence the sneakers) and took Boo for a long walk in the semi-rain. It wasn't exactly raining, but it wasn't not raining.   3. Coffee.. mmm.   4. Boo Radley curled up into a fluffy ball.   5. Original drawing on a natural wooden plaque (look familiar? it's like my dream catcher sketch on my blog!- top right corner.)   6. Eating healthy salad.   7. Hiking the Long Trail (turquoise markers) with Matt on Sunday.   8. Chubby mama bird in her nest in the tree outside my house.   9. Another long walk for Boo in the park.   10. Chevron and florals for my parents 29th Anniversary dinner.   11. Boo cuddling with his duck called Duck.   12. Boo gets a lot of walks.. this one at sunset.

That's what's up. And on a side note, I love you guys. I love reading your blogs and chatting with you on twitter. I'm so glad I started this little adventure <3

  5. I think I saw about two of your banners through the day. If you really got stuck, you could post all of them and have people vote for their favorite.

  6. I love the new banner. It's lovely!

    Sounds like you've been having a great week so far! I struggle to find time to exercise as well. My biggest problem is probably sleeping in so late every morning & having no motivation to exercise when I am awake late at night. Hopefully all the super fun summer activities will get my butt into gear!

    As always, I love reading your blog. You're so fun and clever and original! It's quite refreshing!

  8. Good Job on the banner! I actually caught a glimpse of one of your other ones which was also cute. But loving this one. I am still trying to work out my whole blog layout but finding time to "play around" with it is always tough. Good for you getting all that walking and hiking in! Boo looks super cute btw and Im sure he's enjoying all the walks. x

  9. Love the header! I'm the same way with designing things so I definitely understand.

    And I am the same way with exercising. Every couple months I'm goal-oriented and ready to run for the rest of my life. But then it slowly but surely dies off. I'm doing my best to hold on to it!

  10. I'm going to cry... you know how I whine about wanting an iphone 24/7 but then I never buy one because I sspend all my money on clothes? Well, my technology illiterate dad just bought one yesterday! hahahah WHYY??? Dying. Anyway, lovely pictures! I love the chubby bird!! And the awesome sunset picture at the end. This is such a cool idea to make a weekly collage of these. I love looking at them! Oh and love you tooooo <3 ;)

  19. Your new banner looks really lovely! Have you tried working out in the morning? I know it sounds crazy and totally unappealing, but it has actually worked out sort of great for me! I feel super energetic for the rest of the day, and I don't have any time to talk myself out of it. :)
