Day in the Life, November 1, 2015

Seriously, November already?!?  I just can't believe how fast this year is going by!  I know I always say that, but, man, it seems like time is on fast forward lately.  Jack turned THREE last month (or according to him, "Jack big boy now"), Dennis and I celebrated our 5th Anniversary we're already halfway through the Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF), and the end of the year is right there!!!  Slow down, already!!!

I'm still taking my Day in the Life photos every hour on the first of every month over on Instagram (even though I haven't been blogging them).  It got to be such a hassle to download each picture from my phone (or email them to myself and freak out gmail, then get locked out of my account), upload them to a photo editor (I like PicMonkey {and that's an affiliate link) to watermark them, save them to a folder on my computer, get distracted while writing and editing the post, switching to a different computer where I have no access to my edited pictures, having to wait for Jack to stop watching DinoTrux, finding my groove again, and finally uploading those pics to the blog and writing the damn post.  Then I had an a-ha moment:  I can just embed the f***ing pictures straight from Instagram and save myself literally hours.  FACE. PALM!!!

Anyway, November 1st was quite a busy day for us.  We were all in a post trick-or-treating haze, but had to be up early because I was running the Dia de los Muertos 5K fun run first thing.  Then we had to go back out to TRF because, work.  Jack took an epic nap in the middle of the day (thankfully) and all in all, it was a fantastic day.

I fell asleep in the car on the way home, so there wasn't a 10:30 picture and then we all went straight to bed when we finally got home.  We were all so exhausted!  But in a good way.  I like days that are this busy.

And now that I've figured out how to embed those Instagram pics (and seriously, why did it take me so long to come to figure that out), I can start posting my Day in the Life photos here again!  Yay!  Let me know what you think of the embedded pics - can you see all of them, how fast did the page load, do you like them, etc, etc, etc.
