Insta life: shopping and bugs.

6:30 PMKathryn Curling

Life has been a bit hectic lately... school is about to start for Conrad and I both again... Summer is almost over (what the HECK!!!??) It's been a busy past week getting things ready for conrads birthday party, (more on that later) and I'm honestly feeling a little bummed because I didn't accomplish much of anything that I wanted aside from work.  I had great plans for traveling and adventuring but it didn't really go as planned. I'm hoping to cram some kind of weekend trip in there before school starts.

So here's life lately accord to instagram. Basically it was a lot of time spent indoors because of the 105+ Texas heat, playing with Murphy, shipping off orders, new vintage finds, LOTS of shopping =) and party planning.

Also, one of my favorite blogs to follow these days is Polka Dotted Pixel. She posted a fun little survey type thing via  Whit B. Nimble that I decided to take part in. There a huge part of me that is stuck in 90's of feeling out web surveys with useless info about myself and getting butterflies in my stomach every time I heard that infamous Aol instant messenger sound that meant you had a new IM. oh my....
