Memory-Capturing Camera #MobileMemories

I want to let you all in on a little secret. Actually two, so you'll have to keep reading. Ready?

I don't always carry around a fancy camera to capture photos for my blog posts. SAY WHAT? Yep, that's right. I use my handy dandy sidekick - my cell phone. Those that are bloggers know the side-eye all to well from strangers that see us carrying around large cameras and taking pictures of nearly everything - the sidewalk, that bug, our fur-children (or real children) laying in the grass, us standing in front of an old barn door for an #OOTD post. This list goes on and on. 

Don't be afraid to pull out your cell phone and act like you are just browsing the internet. Just see below for #WIAW and spot the difference from my 'fancy' camera to my 'memory-capturing' camera.

Breakfast: Surprise, surprise. It's cereal. Notice that it's chocolate again, like every single week. Someone needs to break me of my routine.

I guess I kind of did that myself by spicing up my breakfast with an egg burrito. The burrito has jalape├▒os, red onions, 1 whole egg, 1 egg white, cheese, salsa, and black olives.

Snack 1: Snack time is the best time. Am I right? This week is popcorn rice cakes, carrots, and dried cherries. Clearly this day my eyes were bigger than my appetite. I have actually only been eating one rice cake, not two. 

Lunch: This is one of our favorites, but probably not the healthiest with all. the. Italian. meats. The wrap has herb lettuce, colby cheese, proscuitto, salami, and a delicious onion poppyseed dressing. And let me just tell you how excited I am for berries to be in season. They are my absolute favorite and I am actually looking for a strawberry patch near Baltimore to pick my own strawberries. Do you know of any locations?

Snack 2: Greek yogurt topped with some grape nuts. I have been loving the crunch that grape nuts give to the creamy, smooth yogurt. 

Also, see what I did here? #MobileMemories at it's finest. I'll let you in on another secret. You don't have to pay your entire salary to have a cell phone and unlimited data. Walmart Family Mobile service is $29.88/month (for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 1G of 4G LTE data. That's what I use and love the price tag. More money for more food!

Dinner: Steak frites and a large salad. Hello garlic fries and goodbye friends. Talk about some garlic breath. 

Dessert: Because you deserve dessert everyday. I was pretty dang excited about eating this rice krispies treat that I nearly forgot to take the photo. Plus a little drool may or may not have gotten in my way.

Let me just talk about this phone for a moment. This is the Samsung Galaxy Avant ($149) that I just picked up from my local Walmart. I'm not going to lie, the camera is pretty slick on this thing. When shopping for new phones, I always look at the quality of the camera because, I am trying to make #MobileMemories here!

Here's a little behind the scenes for you. Yes, this is actually how I work. 
- comfy pants (i.e. yoga pants)
- tank top
- Mac on to edit photos
- work laptop for my real life job
- cell phone in my hand browsing social media

The struggle is real to actually get any work done. Also, any suggestions on wall color? This blue is miserable!

What are you eating this week? How do you make #MobileMemories?

  1. A great day of eats and perfect to capture all in motion!

    Thanks for linking up, Happy WIAW!

    1. Thanks, Arman! Seeing what others eat help give me ideas for upcoming weeks.

  2. I love my Samsung as well! Great for food pix in good lighting.

    1. So true. Lighting is really everything. :)

  3. I love the idea that we deserve dessert everyday! How true! Dessert and wine is why life is worth living!

    1. Exactly! Plus not all dessert has to be a guilty dessert. :)
