It was a slow insta-week for me. I’ve been total hermit, working on these barefoot sandal patterns too much! I have four patterns that I want to release within two weeks! So I gave myself a schedule, complete with daily to-do lists, and I’m sticking to it! :)
The weekly giant pumpkin update + finding new uses for friendship bracelets.
My mom found this bunny that I started several years ago and insisted that I finish it.
I have a new food obsession. The pretzel appetizer at Friday’s. OMG. Best thing ever. Huge soft pretzel sticks with cheesy bacon sauce. I hit them up twice for happy hour within the past 4 days. *obsessed*
Pretty days are for bike rides at the beach! :)
Another week has gone by and I’m just as obsessed with Instagram. Probably more so now that I’ve found more people to follow. I love getting to know people through the photos they post. Anyway, here goes my week in photos!
Dinos I won at the arcade found a home in my plants! :)
Working on more barefoot sandal designs.
Raspberry margaritas and brand new shoes from the thrift store for $6!
My 2 week old giant pumpkins. They’re my babies, expect a weekly update on them!
Follow me @oolie on Instagram! :)
I never realized how much I enjoy Spring until I started blogging regularly last year and was able to look back at the posts I made. I always assumed Fall was my favorite season because of how excited I get about celebrating Halloween and how much I enjoy everything that leads up to it. But apparently I really like Spring too.
I’m currently working on a skully and extra long skully version of the Spring Blossom Slouchy Hat. I’m not really a wearer of skully hats but people have asked me how to make skullies out of my slouchies so I might update some of my patterns.
I guess it’s a tradition I didn’t really realize I had, but I definitely get excited about going seed shopping. I got some red poppies to go with my golden poppies! :)
And yep! I’m going to attempt to grow giant pumpkins!
And then I’ll be tending another type of garden in Viva Pinata! Have you ever played this? I used to love playing it on Xbox 360. Then I lost my job and had to sell my Xbox to pay for things. Sad story.
Ever since last year when I went to the kite festival for the first time, I’ve been looking forward to it again this year as if it were a holiday or some other special occasion! This weekend, it was time to bust out the dragon kite again and bike to the beach for a day of flying kites and hula hooping with friends!
Amy & I had to recreate this same picture that we did last year! :)
Practice makes perfect, we balance so much better than last year! haha!
I’ve been seriously loving me some Hipstamatic lately! I didn’t even bother to bring my real camera and it resulted in some of my favorite hooping pics ever!
I feel weird posting this now since it’s gone back to being 60 degrees. But over the weekend, it was about 90, so of course a beach day was in order! Somehow, I never get tired of taking pictures of the beach, sunsets, etc. I also never get tired of (or any less excited about) watching dolphins and seals swim so close to the shore that you could totally swim up to them!
Like my new hat? It’s based off the Pineapple Coconut pattern but is a long skully rather than a slouchy. I’ll explain that later and post better pics.
I’m currently loving the Lucas AB2 Lens for Hipstamatic! :)
