In a week.

So much happens in a week. And, it’s been a while since I shared my week through instagram photos. The thing I love about my instagram photos: these are photos of my life. No setting up my camera to get the right photo… no bribing the kiddo to sit still for a minute. Love them.

//We started last week as we always do…. Miss R jumping on the bed to say hello to Mama!

//I was VERY excited to find a hard book copy of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs. This book was a FAVORITE of mine when I was a wee girl. I love the illustrations of the original book. Oh yes. I do. And, I’m happy to share that my girl has fallen for this book too! She’s loving it and asks to keep it in her bed for nighttime reading. <3

//I finally took the time to draw myself. Finally. I was a little nervous to do it… But, I’m so happy I did. I’m now in the process of rendering it in Photoshop. I’ll share with you all when I’m done! I have orders I’m finishing first. P.S. check out my shop if you’d like to order your own custom drawing from meeee.

//I wore my pretty gold ballet flats to the store to buy some groceries… and, come back home to cook some dinner. I wore an apron… So, of course: Ruari wore her’s too.

//Whew… Valentine’s day was a busy busy day! Ruari wanted to say “hi” to all her bloggy kiddo buddies. Then, we played with her horses (one of those horsies is not potty trained), and I made some yum yum yum bacon hearts to top some cinnamon rolls as a Valentine treat! This was R’s first time trying a cinnamon roll. She L O V E D it. Duh. I will admit: I’m still daydreaming of those cinnamon rolls.

//And, then… this last weekend my mom, grandma, the kiddo, and I wandered up to visit family up in Washington. It was lovely. As usual. P.S. they have chickens. Hee. And, since I was already up there I headed out to hang with some cutie bloggers for dinner. I stayed with Mandy head for the night. She’s adorable.

//AAaaaaaannnnnnd….. I finally got my new camera! I’ve been waiting/wanting this beauty for the past year and a half. AND, now I have it. Eeet is ALLLL mine. Bwa ha ha ha ha. <——-I’m a little bit a lot excited times one million. So, yeah. I will be playing with that sweet thing non-stop. It’s going to take a bit of practice to get used to a new DSLR. <3

Happy Tuesday friends!

    Your little girl is adorable, and I love the idea of sharing your week in photographs. That can say so much more than paragraphs of explanation. Thanks for being a fun site to visit! I'm just getting started on my own blog and can't wait to share my ideas/photos/life with fun and creative people like you.

      Oh, I understand. It was seriously a year and a half of waiting/dreaming.

    It's been ages since I have really looked around your blog, due to the fact of having slow internet. Rauri has grown so much.

    Love that camera, same as my one, have fun with it.

    New cameras are sooooo fun! Funny thing though is that when I got mine, I still used my old one a lot! Takes some getting used to for sure! Cute pics of your little homegirl, like always!

    • The Paper Mama on said:

      Ha! So funny. Well, I just gave my old one to my mom. 🙂 Now I have to learn how! Ha! It will be perfect for when I'm at BlogHer this year. Yay for new camera and new lens!!!
