Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPbokehinmotion

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This weekend’s tag was #WHPbokehinmotion, which asked participants to take a creative video using bokeh: the blurred part of an image that’s out of focus. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

5 Things for ME! - focusing on my health

5 Things for ME! – focusing on my health

five things to take care of you

Last week I focused on finding my calm. Some of the things I listed were writing in a coffee shop [accomplished], painting my nails [accomplished], and getting some yoga in [not accomplished]. So, in not getting my yoga checked off the list, I realized that I really hadn’t done a whole lot of working out in general last week. So this week I’m focusing on my health. 

Health is so much more than…

Sausage Gravy over Biscuit Waffles

Sausage Gravy over Biscuit Waffles

a new take on the classic biscuits and gravy

It is my opinion that waffle irons are totally underutilized. I mean, seriously. What’s not to love about a waffle? Those square craters are the perfect recepticals for all sorts of deliciousness, not just butter and syrup. 
So it’s my mission to make as many things as possible in my waffle iron, and show you just how waffleicious food can be.

My first waffle creation was an easy pick in this…

I’ve been running [and by running I mean trot along at a slightly faster pace than a turtle] for a while now. Not exactly sure when I started, officially, but I’ve been trying to be a runner since early 2012. Last year on Thanksgiving I ran my first 5k, a Turkeytrot in Oceanside. I didn’t run the whole entire thing…

5 THINGS FOR ME IS BACK!! 

If you’re here for the first time, let me give you a quick into to what this is all about.

As mommas/women/wives/friends, we are caretakers. Nurturers. We tend to those all around us, constantly pouring our hearts and energies into our kids, husbands, friendships. It’s not a bad thing, and I’m definitely not complaining. It’s what most of us naturally do. What we don’t…

I love our relationship...

proudmarinesgirl:

I know that’s somewhat contradictory to what I talked about earlier, but I really love us. What we have is real and it’s truly amazing. I remember being in high school and dating a guy for 2 years and I was so afraid any time that we fought that we would break up. So, because of that, I never…

How do you help with Early Childhood Development? #TalkReadSing

This post is for First 5 California, but all of my thoughts and opinions are my own.

From the moment Ellie was born, we started talking about her education and what we as parents can do to help give her every opportunity to be successful in school and life.

We always want better for our kids than what we had. For me, education is where that starts.

I was constantly searching the Internet and…

Book Character Grief - It’s Real

Book Character Grief – It’s Real

Book Character Grief

He comes into the scene. The champion. The warrior. The pure of heart. He’s challenged all odds to get to where he’s at, and now beaten, exhausted, and physically worn he stands before the one who has set this chain of events into place. This moment was going to happen. It was coming all along. Now its here. And though his body would wish to protest going any farther, his heart and soul has…
