Oh my gosh. After a crazy busy week of work, Friday night filled with order-in Thai food, and a good night’s sleep (up and at ‘em at 8 a.m.) I am ready to go! I have a few gifts left to buy for friends and family and then I am ready to celebrate the holidays. I am looking forward to sleeping in my bed at my parent’s house and hugging on family til their eyes pop (hello Emily and Erin). And… well, let’s be honest. I am about to die even thinking about my baby nephew that I haven’t seen since Grandpaw’s 80th birthday!
Um… I know. He is the cutest baby ever. His hat is from Susan’s store Blabla Kids (hat here). Its beyond precious. The baby is growing up so fast and I am missing it. But, I am lucky that my sisters just got iPhones so now we can video chat with one another when they are babysitting. I woke up last Sunday to a call from them:
Please do not judge me by my picture. It was early. I had on no makeup. Insert any other excuse.
Yeah, I was looking real rough in that one. So rough that I pulled up my photo editing program and replaced my face with a gingerbread cookie.
Anyway… back to the baby. Uh. I. can’t. wait.
So now that Emily and Erin have iPhones, we have been in a little bit of a photo editing battle with iPhone apps. Or, I have been in a battle. They probably haven’t even noticed. I keep seeing their photos on Instagram and am filled with envy. I keep thinking “How did they do that?!”
I love the multi-picture frame look of the photo and they have been using it so much that I had to figure out what app is was… and share it.
They had been using Photostitch to bring the images together… but it lacked a lot of control that I wanted. So I found another program called PicFrame that I have been using which has tons of templates to choose from and lets you have more control over your images. Obsessed.
Yep. That’s my morning. I keep trying to find pictures around that I can import into PicFrame. I swear my iPhone is filled with more photo editing programs than I know what to do with. For the above photo I framed it in PicFrame and then used Be Funky to add effects.
My family all gathered in Greenville, NC yesterday for my cousins graduation from ECU (I was at work) and the twins took this great picture:
I loved it.
Oh yeah, Happy Graduation Abby!
She’s so pretty.
I love a good app so I thought I would share.
I kind of took last week off to work on finishing my Master’s degree (more on that here) and to get ready for the holidays. While I was chilling I came up with some great accidentally delicious recipes to share, so more on that later.
Have a great weekend!
