Weekend Note 2-27-15

February 2015 will go down as one of my most unpleasant months to date, which I hate saying since I usually love my birth month. Luckily this week seemed to get back on track & just in time for birthday celebrations too. This year is really low key & I’m quite happy about that. A family dinner date on Tuesday, friends in town on my actual birthday & a legit date night with the hubby this weekend.  Here’s to a better, happier, more productive March, right?

Instagrammer-To-Follow

Thanks to last week’s plague I missed the post for the latest BBar linkup but wanted to still post about this month’s topic: my top 3 favorite Instagrammers. Instagram is easily my favorite social media. I prefer the visual aspect of it but like that it is still interactive.
