Taking Stock

Sofia over at Papaya Pieces inspired me to put together this list. Sofia is always inspiring me, from making coconut milk tapioca to spontaneous trips to L.A. ;). Here is a link to her Taking Stock list and now here is mine:   Cooking: nothing today because I’m on a one-day smoothie fast Drinking: water with lime Reading: my Macro Monday post for tomorrow Wanting: more vacation Looking: at my phone to see when the battery is going to die (it’s at 2%) Playing: with Bailey in between chores Deciding: what to wear tomorrow and wondering if jeans will be okay Wishing: for more vacation Enjoying: my last day of summer vacation Waiting: is not something I am good at Liking: pictures on Instagram Wondering: how I am going to juggle teaching photo classes from 7 PM to 9 PM two to three times a week during the school year (I have to leave by 5:45 PM and I don’t get home until 9:30 PM at the earliest) Loving: Bailey, of course Pondering: what my …

1st Blogiversary!

I didn’t realize today was my blog anniversary until I saw the message from WordPress this evening! I can’t believe it has been a year already! Time sure flies when you’re having fun. I have met so many wonderful people through this blog and I am grateful for each and every person who stops by to “Like” and comment on my posts. You have made my blogging experience a great one and I’d be so bored here without you all! 😀 I wasn’t sure what to do for this post since I was running low on time (it was 6 PM when I saw the message). In the end, I decided to take pictures of Bailey and myself to show you how happy we are to have you in our lives. Here is a collage of three of the many shots I tried to take. As you can see, Bailey doesn’t cooperate all that well. But that’s just another reason why I love him so. ❤  

Learning Instagram

Instagram is hard! Well, for me anyway. I’ve had the app installed on my phone for about a year now, but have ignored it for the most part. My students always ask me if I’m on Instagram, then laugh at me when I tell them no because I can’t figure it out. I tell them I’m too tired to learn another social media platform because they drain me of all my energy. Then they laugh at me some more. 😛 Anyhow, I’m posting about Instagram because I’d love to hear any tips/tricks/how to even use this thing from all my blogging buddies. Also, please find me if I haven’t been able to find you yet! I think you can search for Patty Nguyen, or my username pknnguyen. Can you believe nearly every user name variation of Patty Nguyen has already been taken??? UGH. This is what happens when you’re late to the party. Apparently all the other Patty Nguyens in the world have beat me to the punch. Ah well. So anyhow, please help! Now …
