My Life In Pictures: October 1 – 15

Recently a bunch of us in one of my favorite Facebook groups were all complaining about not having time to write on our own blogs because of jobs and kids and lives outside of the computer. That’s when someone threw out the idea to writing a post in pictures! Take your photos from Instagram, and add them to a post with a short description so that everybody can see what you’ve been up to. I loved the idea because it will also make me take more pictures! So here’s what I’ve been up to…

PicMonkey Collage I’ve always heard of Oak Glen and thought it would be fun to go there and pick apples, so while Jason was working one day we decided to go. We met friends there, and I snapped these pictures. These girls are all so cute together! I am fortunate to have lots of friends who have kids the same age as mine, and we all hope these girls will be friends for life…they’ve been lifelong friends so far!

Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to pick apples, but we’ll definitely be going back to do that soon!

PS – Ethan was with us too, and refused to have his picture taken with a bunch of girls.

The kids are usually terrible at knock-knock jokes, so I was surprised when Lila came up with a good one!

We finally got some rain in So Cal! It wasn’t nearly enough to end the drought, but every little bit helps. And shockingly, I even got a pretty incredible (considering my photography skills) picture of a gorgeous rainbow!

Last week, my sister mentioned getting together for dinner, and I told her about this AMAZING recipe for a Garlicky Chicken & Kale pizza that I had found on Pinterest. We made lots of changes to it, and this recipe is AMAZING. Everybody will love it.

PicMonkey Collage1 And seriously, this picture is the reason I have no time. We are completely remodeling our kitchen and downstairs. From the floors to the ceiling, everything is changing. That first picture is what my house has looked like for months (literally). The second picture is a sneak peek of our new flooring and kitchen…stay tuned for more. We still have paint and countertops and a bathroom to redo, so before and after pictures are awhile off. But I can’t wait to share!

Do you like the idea of doing a post on your life in pictures? If so, leave me a comment – if enough people are interested, I’ll start a link up next week!
