Insta-Addicted: February

Hello Instagram monthly roundup time…so nice to see you again.  Before we dive in, I just have to throw this out there.  There was a definite theme going on with our pics…beer.  And I would just like to state for the record that we are NOT alcoholics.  Let’s just say that a cold, snowy February had something to do with the plethora of beer and painting related photos.  Just check out the snow mounded outside our front door in one of the pics below (pic number five)!

February Instagram

So let’s talk about the beer a little bit.  Way back in in the fall of 2012, Colby and I signed up for the mug club at one of our favorite local bars, Paddy Murphy’s in Bangor, Maine.  In fact, being a mug club member was one of the items on my 30 Before 30 list.  Consider that task officially checked off…cuz our mugs FINALLY came in!

Angie And Colby Mugs

The poorly lit, Instagram photo of our mugs just so happens to be Colby’s favorite pic of the month.  Our mugs took forever and a day to come in because they’re made by hand and personalized.  Unlike many mug clubs, we get to keep our mugs once we no longer want to be members anymore.  Fat chance of that ever happening!  Ever since our mugs came in earlier this month, we’ve been spending way too much time down at “our” bar.  If this bar was called Cheers, just call us Norm.

My favorite picture this month was, as per usual, a pic of Colby and Goose.

How Gooses Ride In Trucks

This is how Goose likes to ride in the truck.  He curls up on the back of the seat, kind of wedged between the seat and the rear window, and rests his head on Colby’s shoulder.  He’ll ride for HOURS like this.  As long as you don’t put on a blinker or a deer doesn’t walk by (both things that freak Goose out…I’m officially adding those to the “things Goose is afraid of” list).

This truck ride was extra exciting because it was to go see a guy about a buffet.  Yup…we made our first Craigslist purchase and lived to tell the tale.  But I’ll have more info about that for you later.  We’re planning on converting the piece into a bathroom vanity.  It should be an interesting project!  Stay tuned!

Pssst…What have you guys been Instagramming up lately?  Any favorites?  Or anyone else out there compulsively take pictures of their beer mugs?

Psssssst…You can check out all our Instagram roundups right here.
