Insta-Friday Numero Three

Pin It Now!
Three weeks in a row linking up with Jeannett's Insta-Friday. Just call me the triple threat.
It's my week in cell phone pics.
life rearranged

Makeshift Beyblades.

Name your cup/beyblade.

Rescued these ants from a neighboring dog food bowl. Now they live safely in our driveway.

My dad and Elijah have a special bond.

My love language. Clean the garage.

Went to the beach with the young adults group from our church. Because we are young. No one can tell us we're wrong. Searching our hearts for so long . . . if you can name that song I will be your best friend.

Deep in thought.

I honestly want to try those no-heat curls that friends have been talking about. But until then, the no heat, no brush pony will work.

We rescued these wasps from a nearby roof. Had them relocated to our mailbox. Today they got relocated to wasp heaven by the pest control company.

Have you guys been on Zulily? Oh my goodness. Really cute stuff at really good prices. Clothes, shoes, accessories, toys, books. Something different every day. Like this coat and hat for $19.99. Jordis loves it. Even when it's 90 degrees outside. If you use this link and order something I will get a $15 credit. It's like pyramid scheme so please hop to it.

Practicing to sit like a cheerleader.

Uncle Jon is visiting. He colored with Jordis this morning. She loved it.

Then she had a tea party with Grandpa Fred.

And I painted her jacked up toe nails yellow. A good day for her.

Then I fed her the KOOLAID - while I chanted "You will love UCLA. You will love UCLA. You will have no other schools before UCLA. UCLA. UCLA. Fight, fight, fight."

We headed to our community pool at 6:40. Pool closes at 7. Get your jumps in fast!
Elijah dives.

Lydia smiles.

Uncle Jon flies. Cuz he's 20.

Uncle Jon catches some air.

Jordis fell asleep in the car at 5:40. She's down for the night. We hope. Best of luck to us.

The end. Have a great weekend. My dad turns 70 tomorrow so we are gonna get our party on!

Pin It Now!

Killing me with the creatures. Killing. Kill them. But not the squirrels. Lucy will adopt them. I won't sue you if they give her rabies. I will just send her your way, she can bite you and the circle of life will be complete.

That is all.

This link might get you there:

oh and I have no idea what you win :/

Here's how they say to promote it: :)

How can I boost my chances of winning?
There's nothing wrong with a little shameless self-promotion. So spread the news! Ask your blog readers, email your friends and ask them to vote and forward to others. Beyond sharing the link on Facebook, Twitter, or other online communities you're involved in, you could also contact your local newspaper or TV station. Everyone likes to support a hometown project in a national competition. Even if you don't win, think about all the new readers you'll find for your blog.
