We all know instagram and the like only shows the good things, yadi yadi yada. I don't actually mind that, but I do love to learn the story behind the pictures. I thought I would share some tidbits about a couple of recent pictures. The 'story' is below the corresponding picture. I might have gone a little overboard.. what else is new?
Me: can you take that stupid hat off?
As you can see, we sat in the grass. The next day I woke up with a red splotchy allergic reaction all over my body. You can kind of see it in the below picture on my shoulders. It was all over my arms, even on my palms and it hurt like a mother trucker. We stopped in at a pharmacy to get some allergy pills but unfortunately they didn't help, it didn't completely disappear until we were in Dublin.
Also, KC and I had a little spat that day. #reallifeyall
Viking Splash Tour... I swear up and down, black and blue, that I booked this for noon but apparently I booked it for 10am (very unlike me to make a mistake planning) so we arrived 'late' and we missed our tour. They were completely booked for the rest of the day. I cried because I don't like when plans go wrong (or I make mistakes) so they arranged another tour for walk-ups and us. I was still a bit teary when we got on the duck boat thing, so KC indulged me with those hats and a picture.
Not my beer.
Lets take our jackets off really quick to take a photo even though it's minus a million degrees and this is really cold and uncomfortable dude hurry up and take the photo.
When you try and take a pretty picture for Instagram but your cat is like 'I eats this?' 😻 No Millie, we don't eat books 😡 just finished Code Name Verity and I loved it.. I love books that make me want to hug the people in my life. This one made me want to hug my best friend ❤️ and also, I wanted to hug the characters because that's not weird. Can't wait to see what everyone has been reading tomorrow for Show Us Your Books!
Put book down for photo. Millie tries to eat book. I thought it would be funny to take a picture of her doing so, I am now missing the bottom right corner of that book. Next time she chews one of my books, she'll be so confused 'but mum, you let me do it last time?'
She projectile vomited 10 seconds after this picture, thankfully, I had her facing out so none of it got on me. This might have been because she has 'gotten me' in the past.
I basically never get the stupid yoga mat out anymore because the cats hog the whole damn thing.
Chelsea normally loves the car. We took her on a slightly longer drive and it started to rain and she was so scared, panting and meowing. So what better way to document how bad of a cat parent I am, but to take a photo.
Story of my life: try to take a picture, one of 3 cats wanders in. Options: throw cat (nicely) across the room (really, nicely I promise, they love it) or deal with it. Hence, lots of cats in my pictures.
This is one of my favourite photos ever. This was at my bridal shower and my MIL was being.. well, not very nice, and the girls and I went outside to take a bunch of silly photos. Jenni (on the left) is shorter and she grabbed the back of my dress and pulled herself up to be taller than the rest of us - I guess you had to be there but we were all laughing so hard and it makes me laugh every time I see it.
Thanks for hosting such a fun link up Elle!
Do your pets 'ruin' your pictures?
