Insta Friday: Bird Update and a Few Randoms Edition

I was quiet on the Insta this week.

After last weeks uber-boring-but-you-guys-were-too-kind-and-said-it-wasnt post...I tried to be a bit more selective with my artsy shots.

More artsy.
Less fartsy.

And a few birds.

These little guys got relocated across the walkway....from above the Emergency Exit sign...to above the fire alarm.

I don't think it was their first choice.

But they are really good at making a house nest a home.



I think their motto is, home is where your heart egg is.

Because, despite the first attempt above the fire alarm not being successful, they tried and tried again.



Doesn't she look so happy? So proud of the little home she built?

Unfortunately, their little messes REALLY don't help them stay incognito. And the maintenance guy evicted them, again.

Boo. Hiss.

I consoled myself with a cuppa tea. In my new mug. That I got at the tea salon on Saturday.
Which reminds me, my blogiversary is coming up...fun blogiversary announcement, coming SOON. :)
I am kinda excited about it. And hope you are, or at least will be, too! 


And, lastly,

I hung out with the kidlets on Sunday AM. It was a small crowd.
And we did a lot of coloring.
And by we, I really mean we. I colored too.
And this cutie-pie hogged the aqua crayon the whole time.
Seriously. My color pages needed some aqua love.
And it wasn't gonna happen.
At least she has good taste.


Thanks for a fun week on the bloggity blog! See you all Monday!

Linking up with Jeannett over here:

  9. Yes that was me! You found my blog. I am just getting started and it's taking me longer to learn than I thought it would. Ha. Funny how everything takes longer than you expect it :-). I will have an InstaFriday post next week, because I have no pictures to use this week! Now, once the baby comes, I'm sure I'll have plenty. Thanks for visiting my blog!
