Weekly Photo Roundup #3

719

It has been three months since the last time I did one of these posts. Oops. If you’re new here, it’s basically just a picture post that showcases some of the photos I’ve taken and things I’ve been up to within the last week.

Not too much has been happening this past week. I’m still getting settled in my new house, but it already has such a cozy vibe. I still need to hang things on the wall though. I ordered some wall decals today to put up in the kitchen, so I can’t wait to get them. I want the kitchen decor to be retro/diner style, so hopefully it turns out okay.

The basement is still just a storage space for now until I’m able to buy what I need to turn half of it into a little movie room. I wish I could do it right away, but I’m just not able to at the moment, so I keep telling myself to be patient.

Fast Food & What I Will Not Order

When I did my Fast Food Thoughts & What I Order post, I never imagined it would be one of my most popular blog posts so far. It was just something quick and fun I did, but I’m glad you all enjoyed it. I thought I would do a little spinoff and post items from the same fast food places that you would likely never find me ordering.

 

McDonald’s
Hotcakes & McGriddles
I do like pancakes, but I can only eat a small portion or else they make me really nauseous. There would be no point in me ordering hotcakes, in which you get several, when I wouldn’t be able to eat more than one. McGriddles are somewhat okay, but you wouldn’t find me ordering any because I will always opt for the McMuffin instead.

Weekly Photo Roundup #2

609

I didn’t do one of these posts last week, but like I said I probably won’t do them every week because sometimes I don’t take that many photos. It really just depends. This post will feature some photos I took from last weekend to this weekend, plus some tidbits about what I’ve been up to. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have already seen some of these.

Last Friday, after I got home from work, I decided to have some fun with the Huji Cam app. It’s one of my favorite apps. It’s a camera that you can take photos with, and as soon as you snap a photo it will say “developing”. Then it will go into the “lab” which is a photo album inside of the app. You can view the photos there and decide to save them or delete them. The app automatically and randomly applies different colors, light leaks, grain, etc. to give photos a disposable camera effect. You don’t get to choose the end result of the photo since it randomizes the effects as soon as you snap the photo, but I think that’s part of the fun.

I came up with the idea to occasionally do these photo roundups. It likely won’t be an every week thing as sometimes I only take a couple photos, or no photos at all. Other times, I might take a multitude of photos.

This roundup will consist of photos I’ve taken between last weekend and this weekend. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have already seen a few of these. Some of these I am posting online for the first time.

Mexican Food & Bluegrass

This post is going to be a journal entry of sorts. I don’t do too many of these simply because my life is pretty boring. However, every once in a while I might find something to write about. I know I like to personalize my blog a bit so you can get to know me and my interests better, as opposed to just being another beauty blog.

I probably love food more than anything else. On my days off work, I usually spend half the day just eating. It’s funny that I love food as much as I do since I have IBS (a gastrointestinal disorder), so sometimes I’m in a great deal of pain or discomfort just from eating. I love eating out at restaurants too, but it usually makes me nervous because I’m always worried the food will cause a flare-up before I’m able to make it home.

Fast Food Thoughts & What I Order

I saw this on another blog quite a while ago, and I thought it sounded like a fun post to do. I rarely ever eat at fast food places anymore, but I do like to go to them sometimes. Here are some of the places I go to occasionally and what my favorite things to order are.

McDonald’s
I usually always order a Big Mac with fries or the 20 piece Chicken McNuggets (with Buffalo and BBQ sauce). Nothing else can replicate the taste of delicious McNuggets. Unfortunately, they started making my stomach queasy when I would eat them, so I usually opt for the Big Mac now instead because that doesn’t really bother me. I still like to indulge in the McNuggets sometimes though.

Christmas Day: Food & Gifts

511

Every year, my mom always wakes me up super early (between 8 and 9 am). We then open gifts, which takes us at least an hour to open. I have no idea why it takes us so long. Kitty Cameron was sitting with us while we were opening presents, and of course he was observing and sniffing everything. I got him some new treats for Christmas, and he sniffed them out before I even got them open. He gobbled them down, so he must have liked them. This was the first Christmas without kitty Chloe, since she passed away on Halloween. She used to always love playing with the wrapping paper. Cameron, surprisingly, doesn’t do that. However, he does always try to fit himself inside of the bag that we put the torn off wrapping paper in. He did that this year as well, and a piece of paper with some tape on it got stuck to his fur. He noticed right away, so he jumped out and started running around trying to get it off. I was cracking up! Cats are so silly.
