March ’15 in Instagram

Posted by on Apr 3, 2015 in Photo Friday, Photography | 4 comments

I would talk about how I tried to take less pictures of cats. But let’s be honest, my Instagram should just be called Cats and books. Because my life is nothing but that. I promise to try and be more exciting in April… honest.

Here’s my March in Instagram

Underwater World

Posted by on Mar 13, 2015 in Photo Friday, Photography, Travel & Adventure | 7 comments

It’s been 4 months since we went to Australia. How is that even possible? Well I still haven’t made my way through all the photos cause I’m lazy.

You can view other photos from our vacation here, here, here and here.

Today I’m taking you back to our first full day in Australia. We went to visit Underwater World… well it’s now owned by Sea Life and there are a bunch of them all over the place. One just opened up here in Michigan near us.

I remember this place being so awesome as a kid because it has one of those walkways where you’re surrounded by the tanks and are walking through it. Even cooler it used to have a moving platform through it, but it’s not there anymore *sadface*

Anyway, most of my pictures turned out horribly blurry because the aquarium is super dark.

We actually got there really early before it opened so we took a walk along the wharf by it. It’s pretty sad because it used to be a big touristy area with lots of souvenir shops, now it’s mostly a bunch of businesses, but the classics were still there.

Well, he still had his other eye back in 2008:

I’m not sure what my dad was doing when he took this one.

They have tanks where you can touch starfish and stingrays.

One of their highlights is the seal show:

And of course the adorable otters:

None of my pics from the actual tank tunnels turned out remotely well, but they have actual sharks in there. Here’s a pic of me, Kylie and my brother back in ’08 when the moving platforms still existed:

And that’s all from Underwater World. But I still have more photos from the trip… eventually.

February ’15 in Instagram

Posted by on Mar 6, 2015 in Photo Friday, Photography | 2 comments

Wow guys. This almost isn’t even worth it. Careful, I had a crazy month…

Not much of anything happened this month. At work I started my new position at corporate which isn’t anything too exciting. It’s so much less stress which is such a relief, but it’s a pretty simple job that doesn’t require much brains. So I’m worried I’ll get bored with it quickly, but I’m enjoying the atmosphere for now.

Cutest. Kitten. Ever. Right???

Ok, time to liven my life up a little. I think we’ll do our taxes this month.

Have a great weekend everyone!

January ’15 In Instagram

Posted by on Feb 9, 2015 in Photo Friday, Photography | 6 comments

I’m running a bit behind this month! My schedule’s a little off with starting the new job. But I think January was a fairly productive month. Books were read, cats were cuddled, and I got to demolish a floor.

Here’s the month in instagram photos
