Missing my Olloclip

I recently upgraded my phone, which has been amazing. Target was having this awesome deal awhile back where I ended up not just getting the new phone for free, but I actually pocketed $18! The only thing that I have been regretting about my lovely new phone is that my Olloclip no longer fit.

Withdrawals were happening, especially when the snow was so perfectly powdery. Fast forward to a few days ago, the Olloclip was finally remade to fit the 5c. I was talking to my husband about it (we always talk about purchases to each other), and he being a super genius found a way to make my old clip fit my new phone! I’m in heaven. I can take my macro photos once again (the absolute best part of the Olloclip).

Here is an upclose of a poinsettia. We’re still in holiday mode around here.

Friday-grams and Halloween

It’s started, people are already asking when I will be decorating for Halloween, and when they can come see it all. With all the Halloween decor that I put up, it probably would be wise to start in September, but I wait (although impatiently) until that very first day of October. That doesn’t stop my from looking at all the fun new things in stores though!

I thought these mummy cats were creepy and interesting. Maybe I should go back and get a few?

Friday-grams: Catching Up

Hold on tight, we are going to play catch up!

There is a cool crispness in the air in the morning, football season started, and pumpkin spice lattes are back at Starbucks. Fall must be here, right? It certainly felt like fall last night out at the farmer’s market, where I was the lucky winner of some amazing sounding jam (white chocolate strawberry butter). Can’t wait to try it.

Otherwise, things around here have been busy but quiet. Our lawn mower is broken and we have been trying to fix it, all the while our lawn growing to jungle like heights. Our plants this year have been sad, not a single zucchini grew, and our pumpkin vines are looking amazing, and flowering, but not a single pumpkin in sight. Our potatoes are doing well though!

What is it like where you are?
