Life in Instagrams

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

I don't have an iPhone.
Quite the opposite actually.
I used to have this cute little (non-smart phone) touch screen phone, that I liked a lot. And then the battery life on it decided to just..quit. So instead of making an investment and getting an iPhone... we downgraded, and got me a crappy little flip phone. I'm not sure why I'm telling you any of this.
But anyways, boyfriend upgraded a few months from a 5 year old Razr to a brand new white iPhone 4.... lucky. So it's not unheard of for me to steal it and log into my Instagram account...that I also keep logged into on both of my parent's iPhones. I mooch, what can I say.

So here's a recap of my birthday weekend!Not exactly from my birthday weekend, but from birthday week. Yes, I deserved a weeklong celebration ;)
Blake took me to see Fleet Foxes in St. Louis, and it was absolutely fantastic. Blake isn't really a fan of Fleet Foxes, but I have a feeling that this concert made a fan out of him...maybe. :) It was awesome. I want to see them again. Soon.
Blake took me out for a birthday breakfast at Aunt Martha's pancake house, where I ate way too much. It was so. good.
Best birthday present ever! I feel like such a grown up getting new bedding for my birthday and actually being excited about it. Blake got me all of the homey things I've been eyeing on UO for the past forevers. The duvet cover is reversible, so double win with that one, and the owl pillow cases are the cutest things ever. And the yellow pillow... my favorite. Friday night was spent relaxing after a long evening of partying at my parent's. Dad grilled steaks and made homemade ice cream for me, Blake & Breigh. We had so much fun - highlight of the evening was trying to perfect Teen Mom Farrah's cry face. On Saturday, Blake's band The Midwest Indies had a show at a local coffee shop, so we all went that, my parents included (it was their first time seeing them!), and immediately after was a surprise birthday party for me that my sweet boyfriend planned, and his sweet momma kiiiinda told me about a bit too early ;)Blake also got me these shoes, and some floral oxfords. We wear the cutest shoes.
I started on a painting for Mr. Kern. He gave me a list of words to help get me inspired for a type of painting he wants... but in the end, I decided to go with what I wanted to paint. Ha. Lucky best friend! :)
I love going out on little lunch dates with my dad! Especially when I don't get to see him as often anymore. It's always a treat.

Yesterday, my momma called me up and asked me to go to lunch with her and my little brother, so they picked me up and we went to the Bistro Market downtown, before they went to see a movie. I miss them lots!
Also something to mention - Blake and I have rented a plethora of movies from Redbox lately: No Strings Attached, Chain Letter, and Piranha. The last two were outrageously dumb. But No Strings Attached was pretty cute, if not predictable.

Don't forget to check out After Your Heart today! Breigh and I both blogged yesterday!
And speaking of Breigh, she just wrote a great blog about getting your heart & head on the same page! * Breighann, when I say my blog friends are better than my real life friends, obviously that doesn't mean you. Now that you have a blog, you're a blog friend too. Love your biffersss ♥

Anyways, thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes. Love you!

  1. Ha, so much humor biffers. Ooooh, the Farrah face. Pictures don't do it justice. I think I might do an entire blog focussing on the logistics of her cry face.

  2. Her cry face. Oh my. Hahah even when it really is a sad moment in the show, i can't help but let out a little giggle. Glad you had such a good birthday week!

  3. I love Urbans bedding! It is the cutest ever :)

    I agree with everyone on Farrah's cry-face. I think it's the only reason that I still watch that show.

  4. AWE! Great times. I'm glad you got some iPhone mooching in to get some great instagrams. :) Looks like a great birthday weekend! Those cupcakes look KILLER!

  5. Aww!
    Lovely photos!
    I adore the floral shoes :]
    Too cute!


  6. I seriously want that bedding. And the pillows - adorable! Likin' the Midwest Indies, too.

    All my best,
