nursing just got a whole lot better

…cause mama got an iphone!

it's true. i have stepped out of stone age and into the data plan age.

gimme yo best apps! what can't i live without?

multitasking while breastfeeding just took on a whole new meaning:

conversations with katy

on fiiiiiiirrrraaaaa. 

that's me.

i actually have no idea what i am doing with this thing & make no sense whatsoever when texting due to auto correct. you're welcome, friends. 

and, by the way, instagram has changed my life.


pumpkin girl.



my three babies. 


sneak peek of story's room.


just my lovely map, that's all. 


soccer gnome.


four & 2.5 year check ups. shots & no screaming = enjoying some m&ms on the ride home.


jillian. killing me softly. 


lunch.


you & me.


go time. 


oh ya know. just chillin' pantsless. 


story & evyn. bffs whether they like it or not. 

if you'd like, you can follow along with the little bits of our every day right here


why didn't someone tell me about this years ago?!

  6. Instagram is one of my favorite ones ever!...you can go here: http://printstagr.am/ and print the pictures too. I use the Starbucks app alot and if you go to Wallgreens to fill prescriptions you can fill them online, it will keep your order history and tell you when your meds are ready to be picked up, I used it out of state to find the nearest one when my daughter got sick and had meds called in. The Pinterest app is good and so is Pandora. Have fun with your new phone :)

  10. I'm addicted to scramble with friends.

    Also Snapseed is a great app for photo editing (while it doesn't have the sharing powers of instagram I think it is superior as far as editing goes.)

    Have FUN! You will never go back!

  18. The apps I love are Instagram of course, but also Picstitch, it is an app that allows you to ad in multiple pics to a frame, like 4 square pics into one frame, like a collage. Sounds silly, but I also love the Sherman-Williams colorsnap app...you can take a picture of anything you like color wise and it gives you the name of a SW paint color that is similar or the same. Cool if you see say a sweater you love the color of and want it on your walls...haha or something like that. What else...facebook, groupon, twitter, blogger, pinterest, are just the standard ones. Phonto is also kind of fun for photos it allows you to add words and stickers, etc to your pictures. I use it a lot on my blog to do DIY tutorials. I also have the ESV bible app on my phone with is great (and make the old women at church angry when they think I am texting or facebooking or something during church...haha) And it works with no wifi or internet access, perfect for my women's retreat I went to this spring in the boons! Welcome to the iphone world. Your kiddos better watch out a whole new level of mom-arazzi is comin' their way!

  19. Instagram has rocked my world and turned me into insta-photographer (or at least I like to think so ;). Pinterest is my #1 guilty pleasure, and I would find myself pinning long past the time my daughter was done nursing. (Not to mention it makes me feel like I can pretty much make ANYTHING! Ha!)
    Also if you are going to allow your littles to use your phone this site has some great apps for kids:

    One of my personal favs is kid mode which you can personalize for each child using your phone.

    Enjoy!

  20. I had to take Pinterest off of my phone b/c I would pin when I should be doing something else (after my son nursed - just like Kristin). I browsed craigslist while nursing also. Thanks for sweetly linking to the challenge. I pray God moves in our hearts and lives.

  21. Instagram is amazing. I also like 8mm HD -it's a vintage inspired video camera. Path is a new favourite. Spotify. Hipstamatic. Draw Free is fun! Enjoy your new iPhone!

  22. I think if I had bright yellow sneakers I would be a whole lot more motivated to run! Awesome!
