My So-Called Instagram Life

When I looked through my latest round of Instagram pictures, I noticed that I really have been focusing on three things: my dogs, my garden, and September issues.  

On a totally unrelated note, I have been trying to make my Facebook page a bit more interactive, with some different content than I post on my blog.  It is an easier place for me to answer questions and chat about tv, shopping, sales, books, dogs, or whatever. Stop on over and check it out. 

Harriet dutifully guards our backyard.

My love for anything Middleton.

Petunia and her tongue (as per usual).

Meatball wedged himself between the couch and the ottoman for a little lovin'.

I found this really great recipe book at Safeway.  There is a lot of fall inspiration inside.

Pinot noir peppers, orange bell peppers, chocolate bell peppers, and lemon cucumbers from our garden.

Roma and Early Girl tomatoes, about to become sauce.

We dehydrated the hot peppers we grew to make different kinds of chili powder.

Harriet says that it is time for bed.

Do any of you watch The Great Food Truck Race?  This team came in second the first season and is parked in my neighborhood.  It is on my to do list for the near future.

My first round of September issues, devoured.

Homemade veal sauce, made from the tomatoes above.

I won another Lucky giveaway.  I will post a review as soon as I try this out.  Has anyone tried an at home gel manicure?

My husband ran out to do a few errands, and apparently, life stopped for the pups.  They didn't move until he returned.

The older Meatball gets, the more freckles.

Separately I love anchovies, and I love green olives.  Together, I can't decide if I love or hate this.  Anyone else tried it?

And to all a good night.

I can't believe you've gone through all the September mags. It has taken me two weeks to get through the Vogue

The Fall issues are so fantastic!

I thought I was the only one who enjoyed anchovies. (Everyone thinks I'm crazy.) In olives? I'd try it.

The pic of the puppies waiting for Dad to come home is precious.

Morgan said...

I love Kate Middleton too! I can't get enough of her style. :)

Stephanie said...

So many magazines!

I almost bought an at home gel manicure kit last Friday but I was worried I'd screw it up like I do all my other manicures. Let me know if it's pretty easy to do (and if it actually lasts longer than regular at home manicures!). I usually chip my nails the day after I paint them so if that works, I'm sold!

Suze said...

Your garden is amazing!! Also- love meatball :)

SizzleandZoom said...

What wonderful garden veggies. Wish I could cook well enough to warrant all the work it would take to put that in place for us.

Emmy said...

The Little Flapper said...

I think I've instagramed you about your garden? Do you have any tips? Maybe that should be a next blog post, I'm really interested in growing my own veggies.

I'm Erin

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
