Friday Highlights 1.30.15

Hello Friday!
Happy Friday friends! This week was a busy one! A birthday, beautiful weather, park trips and we even managed to squeeze in a bit of school ;). I just had to take advantage of every moment of this beautiful weather because it's Missouri and it is supposed to snow this weekend, UGH. But I always say if it's going to be freezing, it might as well snow. Let's just hope it doesn't ruin our much needed date night Saturday. 

{ONE} Cosmic Yoga

This week I did a post on our favorite new way to exercise, cosmic yoga. It's yoga, stories and so much fun. Be sure to check it out and give it a try with your kids soon.

{TWO} Bloglovin

Okay so I know I am probably the last person who still reads blogs from the blogger feed. But I have FINALLY made the switch to Bloglovin, no looking back now. I hear that Bloglovin is a more reliable resource so you do not miss any posts. I also really love that I can make lists and mark things as read. The organizer in me is screaming Hoo-Ray!

Anyone else a Bloglovin fan? It took two whole days to make a believer out of me.

Follow along and leave me a comment with a link to your Bloglovin account so I can follow you back

{THREE} Birthday Boy

I may or may not have called the husband an old man on Instagram.... I did use " " marks though. Lucky for me he has a sense of humor.

Deep breath "old man". Today we ate, sang and celebrated our favorite guy.

We had a great time celebrating Russ' birthday on Tuesday
Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments wishing him a Happy Birthday.

{FOUR} Flash Air

One of my favorite Christmas presents has hands down been my Flash Air card. It allows me to take photos on my real camera (AKA not my phone) and easily share them from my phone. Ever since getting my card I want to Instagram all the photos, but I am trying to show a little bit of restraint. The best part about the Flash Air card is that it doesn't have a hefty price tag and it works great!

Being able to Instagram high quality photos easily has been awesome.

(This is not an affiliate link, I just really love this product. On that note sadly Amazon does not have an affiliate program in Missouri, boo!) 

{FIVE} Pin Crazy

You know what I love most about Pinterest? Being able to tell EXACTLY what a person has on their mind. It could be exercise, chocolate cake or anything between. When someone starts searching and pinning, we all know what's up.

Follow Our Pretty Little Girls's board Homeschool Room on Pinterest.

Lately for me that has been a school room. Currently we do home school at the dining room table but I have my heart set on something a little more official and a place where everything doesn't have to be moved so we can eat. I  have been busy looking up more and more ideas all the time. We are currently in the wishing stage but will start planning things out soon, I can't wait!

What have you been pinning about lately?

  1. That memory card is awesome! I may need to invest in one. I agree about pintrest (right now mine would probably show I'm looking for ideas for Annabelle's second birthday). I've noticed some friends pinning baby stuff "for the future", but I'm wondering if they are pregnant!

    1. Haha! Yes I have often wondered those same exact thoughts about some of my friends.

      The memory card is great! Every blogger "needs" one.

  2. I agree with you...if it's gonna be freezing cold it needs to snow! I am definitely going to check out that Flash Air card...sounds super easy! Stopping by from the link up.
    Have a blessed weekend!
    April :)

    1. It's so true isn't it?!

      Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

  3. That SD card looks awesome! I'm sure my Russ would love that!! Happy Friday!

  4. Oh, I've been wanting one of those SD cards! I'll have to check that one out! I'm a bloglovin' fan too, only way to go! ;)

  5. You're going to love blog lovin! My friend finally switched over too and she's loving it. It's just so much easier.

    1. I already LOVE Bloglovin! It didn't take long at all... why did I wait so long?!

  6. Switching to bloglovin' was one of the best decisions ever! It's so easy to use, and I love reading it from my ipad as well.

    1. I couldn't possibly agree more! I absolutely love it. I just wished that I had switched MUCH sooner.

  7. I haven't checked out bloglovin yet - I think I should get on that today! I've been going pin crazy too lately. Happy Friday!

  8. I've added that wireless card to my wish list!!! Looks amazing. I hardly use blog lovin'. Maybe I should start

  9. I just got a Eyefi card last month and love it! It is similar to the FlashAir I think. It's so nice to just share dslr photos on IG immediately. I'm on Bloglovin' too and love that I can break down all the blogs I read into categories.

  10. Welcome to bloglovin! I've been using it for over a year and read most posts through the app on my iPhone. It's so great!!

    I'm going to have to keep an eye on that flash air and get it once our self imposed "spending freeze" is over!!

  11. Yay for joining bloglovin! It's what I use and it's so easy to see which posts I haven't read. Now only if I could get caught up... :)

    You know, I think my camera came with one of those air card things- I'll have to look. If not though, that is definitely something I'll have to check out. Happy weekend!

  12. YAY for bloglovin! Honestly I LOVE it. I never used to use anything but then I had a million blogs bookmarked and I would forget to check if they had new posts and such. I hated it. I joined bloglovin and now it tells me when people post! It's perfect :)
    I want that memory card! And a camera :)

  13. Love Bloglovin! So fun. I need to organize mine more- okay that card sounds amazing!

  14. That's a really awesome card! I love bloglovin. But, it is the first one I'd used to follow blogs. I had no idea about feeds and such prior to that. I had an old school bookmark tab of my faves and it would take forever to go through them. This is much better!

  15. Tell me more about this flash air… What makes it different than a regular camera memory card? I have so many pics I take with my "good" camera, and transferring them to post on social media sites can sometimes be a bit more of a hassle than I want to deal with.

    Bloglovin' I just can't get into it. I've only given it a half hearted attempt, but maybe I need to give it a second shot…

  16. Ooo thanks for the tip re: the flash air card! Pretty cool! It would be nice to post the better quality pics to IG. Hope you had a great weekend! Thanks for linking up with us at H54F!!
