So I finally got an iPhone (an early birthday present from Hub), and I’m loving it! The only thing I miss from my Crackberry was the physical keyboard…but everything else is way better on the iPhone.
I also got sick of waiting for Instagram to come out for the Blackberry…and now I’m finally on this fun photo-sharing platform (albeit a little late to the game) I’m still getting the hang of it, but I’m posting photos of Portland, Fall snaps, my latest manicures, DIY stuff I’m working on, and recipes. Hope to see you there – I follow back!
1. My last super-healthy indulgence: stove-popped popcorn with lemon-flavored Nutra Sea [Omega-3 oil supplement], Mrs. Dash lemon herbs, and sea salt / 2. Latest mani: 3 coats of Piggy Polish Teal It Like It Us, from the Ulta store / 3. Yummy zucchini spaghetti: shredded zucchini, simmered in butter and olive oil, tossed with spaghetti and parmesan
4. The finished result of said pasta / 5. Sun motif embedded in the pavement at NE Everett St., Portland / 6. Lil Tot’s first English composition
7. My backyard covered in red Japanese maple leaves / 8. Mushrooms I spotted at Lil Tot’s school, growing in the soccer field / 9. Fall leaves piled up at his school
10. I finally learned to solder properly, and made some hammered sterling silver links / 11. Nails Inc. in Trafalgar Square magnetic mani / 12. Portland leaves just beginning to turn yellow for Fall
