Guess what I made collages {Insta-Friday}

As if I need more stuff to keep me on my phone.

I used the PicFrame app to make these fancy collages for Insta-Friday this week. I used the LabelBox app to make the numbers. Don't you feel like I'm just really growing up? Joining the 21st century? Sitting at the cool kids table? I have a little late-night giddy happening, can you tell?

I call this one the Four Faces. Well, Three Faces & A Necklace.

1. The No-Heat Curls and nearly no makeup face. I do this to my hair every week. I'm addicted.

2. My end of the night I'm-so-over-it-and-do-not-cross-me face.

3. My going on a date with my husband face, working the perfect, two-day old no-heat curls. (Also soon to be the pic on my bio for something really really really cool I got invited to participate in.)

4. My favorite piece of jewelry this week, made by Heather Holden (her shop!). YES! It went straight from the mailbox to my neck for 48 hrs. There is a little teeny heart above the typewriter. See it?

I call this Pinewood Derby Day with my little Tiger Cub.

Really sweet time to see my little guy participate in this for the first time. He chose to put #48 on his car. No reason. My dad totally did this with my brother when he was the same age. I remember being there and watching. So awesome how my dad could be here too, to watch his grandson this time.

I call this Four Things That Don't Really Matter.

1. Rest In Peace, favorite custom handmade sandals I got in Capri on our tenth anniversary. You lasted me four awesome summers.

2. Loving this new color! It's called Posh. It's the perfect kelly green.

3. We heart musicals over here. As soon as it started drizzling last Saturday, my daughter suggested we rent it. It's so happy.

4. I just thought Trader Joe's had quite the nerve to step on Nutella's toes like that. So chocolaty and brazen. I bought it just for the sake of controversy. Ok, taste comparison. It's for science, really.

I call this A Really Good Day.

The Reed kids plus mine equal a wild, but oh-so-lovely bunch.
And this lady, well, she was a jet-setter to Paris for what seemed like a long time and I missed her. This beautiful afternoon made up for some lost time. I like it when my bestie and I are on the same continent (BTW, did you read her post on Paris and marriage? It's a good one).

I call this A Really Good Day Part 2.

{I spy with my widdle eye, some kids I really love.}

I hope you had a great week too. I'm off to women's retreat today, so I'll be off the grid this weekend. Hugs.
