Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 8

What to do with all those Instagram pics!? I’m into social media and by into I mean slightly obsessed. I think it’s a great way to stay in touch with people you rarely see or talk to on a regular basis. For me, it’s a way to let my family know what’s going on since the majority of them live out of state or over an hour away from me.

Now the truly obsessed Instagramers are those who have accounts for their pets….let’s be honest…I love my puppy (I mean this blog is named after her), but if she had her own account what the heck would I post on my Instagram lol Probably pictures of food and clothes đŸ˜‰ HA welcome to my world.

So what do we do with all those digital photos we keep in “the cloud”? Well here’s a few projects to bring that aspect of your life into your home.

First, this Instagram wall…isn’t it fabulous!? I love the idea of a collage in mini picture frames. Hoping to try it soon.

Next up…DIY coasters. I made these for my sister-in-law for Christmas and followed this tutorial using 4″ x 4″ tiles (purchased at Lowe’s) instead of the mini ones. I purchased the printed photos through an app called PostalPix, but there are tons out there and I’m sure you could probably try the CVS and/or Walgreens app.
and why not keep it simple and use hanging wire to display your life!

I hope this inspires you to live OFF social media and bring your memories into your home through pictures…that’s how grandma did it!
Until next post…xoxo Becca

Memorial Day Weekend Report

I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing Memorial Day weekend and took time to remember all those who currently serve, have served, or lost their life for our freedom.

I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing like a 3 day weekend to feel refreshed. As I mentioned in my post on Friday a good friend came to visit. She and her husband moved to Austin last year and we don’t get to see each other as often as we would like. Luckily her hubby was in town and was able to join us. Although he did have to put up with a lot of girlie conversations and mimosas. He survived đŸ˜‰ For those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram, here’s a recap.

I seriously couldn’t pick one! They’re all so gorgeous. 

It’s not a party without mimosas

and some wine and hammock time with the bestie

Sunday brunch made by the hubs

And that brings us to Memorial Day. Which started out with some hammock time with the family. How adorable is my puppy. I know I know…I’m biased. We had some friends over for hot dogs and laid out by the pool. Overall it was a relaxing day and I’m glad I was able to spend it with the hubs.

Before I go, all the recipes I tried from last Friday’s post were a hit. Hope you get in the kitchen and try some new things! Until next post…xoxo Becca
