Rowan & The Fox

Socks the Fox is not only Rowan's favorite thing to carry around (and sleep with), but special because I bought him for her with our possible future son in mind (no I'm not pregnant). Fox is a family name (middle name of my grandpa, dad and brother) and we plan on using Fox as either the middle or maybe even first name of our future son. I've been collecting little things here and there with foxes on them for a long time but for now, Socks is Rowan's buddy.

Let Me Tell You A Secret..

I've been holding out on you folks!
I know that many of you use the iPhone app Instagram and I have a secret that I've been keeping to myself for a long time and felt it was time to share this little bit of knowledge with you all. You can thank me later..

Some of you that follow me here and on IG have noticed and asked why you never saw some of the pictures that I posted here on IG even though they're clearly IG photos.
Thaaaaat's because I figured out how to filter and save my iphone pics to my camera roll without posting them to IG! That way you're all not getting a complete repeat on here of what you've already seen on IG(and I can keep some of the filtered photos to myself too).
Still with me???

This is how you do it:

Take a picture:

Choose your filter and click "next":

On the next page, notice the little circle that's thinking to the top left? That is what is actually already saving your filtered picture to your camera roll! You just have to wait until it's done thinking and disappears before doing anything else! Once it disappears, just click the "back" button... obviously don't click the "done" button or it will upload to IG as normal.

Hit "back" again and click out of  everything to return to your main IG screen.

Go to your photos and notice that the picture wasn't uploaded to IG...

... but WAS uploaded into your camera roll!

That's it! Easy as pie.
Happy Instagraming!

Time Warp

About once a week, after importing new photos onto my computer, I scroll back through all of my photos and rediscover beauties like these. I cannot get enough of this face.

Sponsor Le Blog

I'm now accepting sponsors for the month of September!
It's $15 for the 150x150 ad or $10 for the 150x70 ad. All sponsors will be on the right sidebar(large ads always above small ads), rotating throughout the month. I'll also do an introductory post at the 1st of the month, linking to your blogs and other social networks.
We receive anywhere from 2,000- 2,800 views a day. The lower views are usually on the weekends because everyone's out and about instead of at home on their computers. Occasionally we have even higher views (2,800-3,200) but that's just here and there with the more popular posts or when other popular bloggers link to us. 
In addition, we have 551 twitter followers and 162 Bloglovin' followers.
Contact me at jesshoeft@gmail if interested!
Thanks! xoxo

A Hike

Yesterday we went to my Uncle Damon's house and hiked the trail along the creek. I'll post more about our evening at his house later but now it's time for me to get some shut eye before our early flight back to Hawaii tomorrow. I'm so sad to be leaving but I'm grateful for all of the fun memories that we made while we've been here.

Old School

We found this vintage cash register toy for Rowan at a yard sale on Friday and it's extra special because I had one when I was a kid and I loved it. Rowan loves hers now too and I snapped these pictures of her ringing up some groceries yesterday. It's so fun seeing her play with things that I had when I was little.
