I am a tish bit addicted to Instagram.
It's an app on my phone (for all those who are like "what is an Instagram?") and it lets you use fun filters and share your photos with your followers and such...
I tend to stalk people through it... another story for another day...

Well, a blog I follow/stalk and LOVE... Life Rearranged, she does a great every Friday post entitled instafriday. It is a great way to show all those in your little corner of the Internet what you have been up to all week by sharing your instagram photos.

Truth be told, I have wanted to be doing this (that sentence sounds wrong... but I am going with it...) for awhile now, I am just too tired.lazy.busy.forgetful.rundown. Pick your answer. All will fit.

Today I will post an instafriday post, in hopes that it will happen again next week...
let us all not hold our breath...(breaths?)

Last weekend I went to Woodruff Place flea market. It was Beautiful, slightly crowded, and chock full of great stuff. 

I bought a $2 skate board. My initial plan was to put it on the wall in Rigg's room as a shelf. Ryder decided he wanted to try out his mad skills first.
I think it will still be a shelf...

I also purchased a few awesome old frames with some real depth and lots of nice shape to them. I am gonna spray paint them in some fun high-glossy goodness and hang some prints in my kitchen!

Took the boys to the zoo. The zoo has a splash zone. Ryder just ran and ran and ran, Rigg had to get warmed up a bit before the water seemed fun, but in the end they both came home wet.

 Also a trip to the Children's museum, Rigg could spend all day in the playhouse with the play food. He serves up a meal and then cleans it up... just to serve it again.
Snapped this sweet pic of the boys "eating" lunch.

It's happening.
They boys are starting to really play with each other. And along with that is some brotherly love.

So back, I don't know, let's say...*cough*Christmas*cough*, the Captain bought me an awesome mug you can paint. It has been sadly neglected since, ...*cough*Christmas*cough*.
I was tired of looking at it's plain blackness... and/or the Captain put on a wounded face and asked why I hated his present.
So I painted me a dandelion, seeds blowing in the breeze... sigh, instant relaxation.

Found a Dora the Explorer motorized car at a garage sale for $15. Peeled all the girly stickers off, gave it a soap down, my Mom and Dad replaced the battery and now the boys have a fun ride for the boys.
Rigg is still learning how to steer, which button means forward and which one means you will run your brother over because he is right behind you... but it will come, it's early days.


I discovered that I am a culinary genius.  I was planning on making a certain dinner last week, and all my ingredients were wrong. I immediately scolded the girl who shops for us... which is me...
Hey, it's hard to focus with 2 really energetic boys in a crowded Wal-Mart...
Anywhoo, my blunder forced me to be creative, and the result was Iron Chef worthy.
Ok... I might be overstating a bit... But it was lick-your-plate-good.

Discovered that Ryder can hang on the bar at the park. Tried to get a pic of both the boys hanging together... but Rigg jumped down. It looks like Ryder is kicking Rigg in the head here.... but no worries... there was no head kicking, at least in this picture!


Well there you have it, some of my week!  Hope yours was filled with fun and productivity...
ahh, I miss that word...
