My Week In Pictures

I know for sure I've told you guys about how obsessed I am with Instagram.  I'm sure every single other person in the world is just as obsessed.  I just can't explain the satisfaction that I get when I'm able to share the color and beauty of the things around me.  It may sound a little lame for me to say but I just love the feeling.  I actually would like to challenge you to do the same.  It might get your creative juices flowing, you just never know.  That being said, I just wanted to share with you some photos from my week, so check it out!

#1: Stormy Skies

For the first half of the week, I knew we were expecting stormy weather.  We were warned several times to stay away from low-laying areas, prepare for severe weather, etc.  I never am surprised with the weather we get here because after Sandy, anything is possible.  Even before Sandy, I know that obviously nothing really gets 'crazy' weather wise, but there's always the potential for insane wind.  There was a point in time this week though, that the water outside my window looked so calm, but the sky was almost as dark as night.  I felt like I was sitting here waiting for a tornado and this is what this photo depicts.  This has happened before, but the feeling I had during this moment in time was so strange.  The room felt cold, I felt super alone and quite frankly it's amazing how the weather can make you feel!  Don't you agree?  What has the weather been like where you live?  Hopefully better!

 #2: Evening Regatta

When the sun finally decided to show its face for a little while, the sails in the area were able to put on a little regatta.  This always makes me happy.  For some reason, they always tend to happen around here on Tuesdays.  I don't know much about the sailing culture as I don't belong, but I just love watching it from my windows and porch.  I am lucky enough to be able to have this beautiful scenery so catching these things every once in a while just makes me happy.  I found this to be especially funny/interesting because I saw the sail with a spider and the sail with the lightening bolt, hahaha.  Also, the boat on the bottom right was so awesome.  I wish I had gotten another photo of how cool it looked.  The boat flags were beautiful and I just felt so 'nautical' hahaha.  That sounds ridiculous but I don't care.

#3: Emoji Day, Duh!

I mean, I don't think I have to explain this at all.  It was the only day you could use the July 17 emoji.  You're welcome for this ~*eXtReMeLy*~ important piece of knowledge.  I had to celebrate.

#4: The Fierce Level

You all know that I have an obsession with shoes and as I told you, it hasn't always been that way.  These beauties from Aldo are actually something that I would have NEVER bought.  When I saw them, I thought of trying something different and to be honest, I think they were on a killer sale.  I don't think I could imagine my life without these now.  #NoJoke.  I mean seriously, how gorg are these!?  Let us not forget to mention the fantastic pedicure that I have.  I only say fantastic because of the color, I really didn't like the place I went to for it!  I was a little upset because I've gone there before, but this time I just wasn't happy.  Keep in mind, this isn't the same place I went to for my gel manicure.  The place I went to for my gel manicure I LOVED, Star Nails!  I want to try a pedicure there soon, perhaps this week with my Aunt.  I didn't go there this time because of a timing issue.

Share your photos from this week on Twitter with me!  Let me know what you've been up to.  Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to talking with you all again soon!  -Brit.
