My So-Called Instagram Life

I fear I am starting to run out of space on Picasa to store blog pictures.  Has this happened to anyone else?  How did you resolve this?   

Husband and I purchased these as footrests.  Somehow they morphed into elevated dog beds.

I am a bit obsessed with my ear cuff from Something Monumental on Etsy (It was only $4).  Plus, I adore her blog.

I think the key to a magnificent homemade pizza (aside from the crust) is a lot of green olives.  

I recently spent a fun day in Golden Gate Park.  Post to come soon.

Petunia, snuggled in my bed.

My pug and my porkie 

A very Carrie Bradshaw moment from Nola's first birthday party (post to come soon).   
When I saw this at the market, I had to try it.  

I am starting to figure out that I can put chia seeds in everything.  How do you like to eat them?

I love the crystal clear skies of summer in suburbia...

...and the foggy summer days in San Francisco.

Summer requires lots of fruity cocktails.

Learning how to use the Halftone app.  Of course, Petunia is my subject.

Totally passed out on Meatball's bed.  I am sure Meatball was lying next to the bed when I took this.

Have you guys tried a caramel Kit Kat?  I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up!

What a beautiful park! So very glad you like the cuff. :)

About the photos... I ran out of space a long time ago and keep everything on Photobucket now.

Melbourne on my mind said...

I bought more storage through Google. It was $5 a year for an extra 20GB of storage, so I figured it was definitely worth it for a mere $5 a year!!

Your dogs are completely adorable, as always :)

rooth said...

Oh yay to homemade pizza. I've realized that's the only way to do it! Yours looks delicious Erin

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

I've heard of the space thing being an issue for other bloggers but I haven't had a problem yet. I resize all of my photos so they're pretty small files. I didn't always do this, though, so I'm kinda surprised I haven't hit a storage limit yet!

Heather said...

Yum, that pizza looks tasty! Green olives are my favorite!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

Let's see, where to begin?

I have a paid account with Flickr, it's 24 bucks a year but I have hundreds of pictures on and plenty of space for more!

I love chia seeds in my smoothies!

*sigh* I LOVE Golden Gate Park. In fact, I love San Francisco, period. One of these days I will ambush you, just show up at your door and say "hi! just couldn't resist SF and the Bay Area anymore ;-)"

S said...

Omg, your puppies photos are so sweet!!!
Such a cuties!!!^^

drooling over the pizza. I'm an olive addict.

Mademoiselle S. said...

OMG those puppies are so sweet! Great pics and blog, dear! If you get a second, I'd love to hear your thoughts about my latest outfit :)

el-mundo-en-colores said...

yepp, there's only a limited free space on picasa, I have a lot of other personal albums, I'll just save the pics on my laptop to create more space for blogger, and then will probably end up buying more storage..

Instagram is a great way to capture all of life's little moments -- and make them look totally awesome.

Your posts usually always bring a smile to my face and this one was no exception. Your loved ones are precious. The pizza looked so good!
Did you make it? I used to make my own but it never looked as good as this.

honey my heart said...

mmm, chia seeds! i really like them mixed in kombucha. and i'm sure they'll be a great topping or addition to most anything :)


So funny because I just, 2 seconds before I read this, asked someone if they bought a KitKat and I never ever talk or think about them. Bizarre. But now maybe I should give a caramel one a shot :)

Love all of your pix. Your dogs are just adorable. Oh and I've been meaning to give chia seeds a shot.

Courtney Erin said...

Wow, your dogs are beyond adorable - such great photos of them!

I had no idea such a thing as the caramel Kit Kat existed. I must have one immediately.

Steph said...

Your dogs are so stinking cute! Carmel kit kats sound oh so tasty!!

Amy Fashion Blog said...

That pizza looks yummy

Shoe Bell(i)e said...

Adorable pets, yummy pizza... Woman at work mixes lemon juice and a bit of water, adds the chia seeds then lets it sit for a few minutes. It makes for an interesting texture for sure:p... Want to try that caramel Kitkat now, ever tried the green tea one?

Stylish By Nature said...
