It’s time for another Insta Recap!
Everyone seemed to like the idea so I’ll try to do this weekly. I thought Saturday morning might be a good day for it. I take it for granted that a) everyone is on Instagram and b) everyone following me sees everything I post. What!?! It’s not all about me? Ha.
So here we go. These are my faves from the past week on Instagram!

It got really cold last weekend, and I broke out my cold weather running gear.
We had the craziest weather on Sunday. It was cold all day, and that evening we had a brief hail storm. We watched the storm move in, and I took this picture about 10 minutes before it started to hail. I love a rainbow. It always reminds me of God’s promises to us. Ironically, we saw this just as our guests arrived for prayer meeting, which we all thought was pretty cool.
The next morning, we woke to frost on the ground. The kids got excited and thought it had snowed. According to my iPhone, it was 27 degrees at 8am. Needless to say, I wore my cold weather running gear again! I even put a layer on under my half-zip that morning. I stopped to take this picture as I was running by. I don’t love running in 27-degree weather, but it sure beats 87.
This was Monday night, after I had my foundation matched at the salon where I go to get my nails done. I broke my compact, so they got me set up with a new one. This photo was taken later in the day, and it looks like I should have touched up my chin. Oh, well!! I have a bit of rosacea that I’m always trying to keep covered, but for a no-filter selfie, this isn’t too bad.
I grabbed this shot after stopping into my local whole foods mart for a Pumpkin Spice Latte. These are so much better than anything you can get at Starbucks. They’re made with real pumpkin puree. I was also experimenting with mixing silver and rose gold. Check out the arm candy. This is a simple outfit I throw on a lot for working from home and running errands. These Felicia Flats are like butter. I wear them every chance I get. If I lived in a warmer climate, I’d buy them in a few other colors, but I know that once it gets cold here, I won’t wear ballet flats much till spring.
And in case you missed it, this is from my post on how to wear a blanket scarf. I think this outfit is adorable, but it is a bit cumbersome for everyday wear. Over on Instagram, @maggielousmommy said that she actually cut her blanket scarf in half and shared it with her sister. She wears it like this, but it is only one layer, and she said it’s much more comfortable that way. I think that’s a brilliant idea!
I took this picture yesterday when I was headed out to have lunch with my husband. We had the most hysterical waiter at the Capitol Grille. At the end of our meal, he treated us to dessert and champagne. When we got the bill, it was comped. What a fun way to end the week!
