Happy Wednesday, friends! Today’s post is going to be short and sweet because…it’s officially the last day of summer at our house!
Where did the time go?!?!
We had an amazing summer, but now, it’s come to an end.
Today, I told my kids that we can sleep late, swim and enjoy this one last glorious day.
Today is also LET’S LOOK! If you don’t know what this is, once a month, Erika and I do a little link up where we “look” at different aspects of our lives (and then if you blog, you share and link up too!). It’s often a random little assortment of topics.
In January, we looked at our coffee bar areas.
In February, we looked at our love languages.
In March, we looked at a perfect night in.
In April, we looked at our fridge and pantry.
In May, we looked at our outdoor organization.
In June, we looked at our summer bucket list.
In July, we looked at our bathroom organization.
And today, we’re looking at our PHONE, APPS & SUCH!
I don’t know why, but this topic intrigues me!! I love hearing all of the random (and often super useful!) apps you guys have on your phones! This is a quick and easy little post, but hopefully, I’ll end the day with several new apps I *need* to add to my collection!
Before we get to apps, I asked Erika to share her frequently used emojis with me.
Listen, when you look at her emojis and then look at mine, it 100% sums up where we are in life right now…
These are Erika’s most used emojis and then, here are mine…
…why am I already using the jack-o-lantern?!
It’s August 11th!
Erika has all the emotions…I have the weird summer/fall conflict happening on my phone.
I would LOVE to see what your most frequently used emojis are too! If you are commenting from your phone, leave them in the comment section!!
Now, on to my phone. My kids tell me I have WAY too many pages of apps. I have eight. Typing it right there does sound aggressive, but I know where everything is and just don’t feel like I should delete things. I mean, what if I need my Hallmark Christmas Movie app in July, I don’t want to have to download it again, right?! Or My Disney Cruise Line app…I mean, I might be sailing sometime in the next…five years, so I should keep that one too.
For someone who loves to delete clutter, I have a hard time deleting my apps.
Here is my first page of apps. I really don’t think I’ve added or taken away from this page in YEARS!
I feel like this first page here sums up my life.
I cover all the basics: coffee, Jesus, the Red Sox, and connection with friends online. I have a place for my work stuff (my Google folder), a place to check in on my favorite online community, a place for notes, to keep an eye on my kids (Gizmo), a little home security on there, I can remote start my car from that Cadillac app and weather, music and a map!
Please also note that I have zero unread emails or text messages because that drives me insane! I have to check all of my messages and HATE when I see notifications. Are you like me? Or do you have like 500 text message notifications? I feel like there is no middle ground. You either have a ton or you have none.
Okay, I need the skinny on YOUR VERY FAVORITE APPS! Please share with me in the comment section the answers to these questions (if you can):
1: What app do you love the most for keeping your schedule organized?
2: What app do you love the most for editing photos?
3: What app do you love the most for keeping tabs on your kids and/or their social media use?
4: What’s your favorite app that no one else is using?
I would love your recs please!!
One last thing…
…seriously, this is my life.
I feel like my family lines up in front of me like they’re at the Apple store or something!
That wraps up this last day of summer for me! Next month on Let’s Look…
…it’s all about the Meal Planning!
