Guys, I love instagram as much as the next person but I am really mad about this whole algorithm thing. 

It won't really effect me because I am not on instagram to make money or anything so it will only lower my self esteem if I get less likes on my pictures. I am mostly mad because instagram is trying to control what is in my feed. If I choose to follow someone on instagram then that means I want to be seeing what they are posting. I don't follow anyone that I don't want to see their pictures. So it is making me really mad that they think they know better than I do what I want to see. Pretty sure I am an intelligent enough person to decide what I do and don't want to see on instagram. I know they are doing this to make money but it is making me so mad that they are trying to control my feed. 

Also, I will not be turning on my post notifications for anyone. I can not have my phone beeping at me all day telling me that every person in my feed has posted a picture. I would go insane. And it would make my life revolve around checking Instagram and I can not have that. 

So I guess what I am saying is that I am mad at instagram and that this change will probably cause me to take a step away from social media. Which may not be a bad thing in the long run but it sure is making me grumpy for right now.

I am so grateful to have been able to celebrate Easter this weekend. I am so grateful for the Atonement and the Resurrection. It brings me so much peace and happiness in my life. I am so grateful to know that we can live forever with our families and have eternal happiness!

Our Easter was pretty simple. I made some cookies that morning. That turned out pretty cute but if I am being honest were not the most delicious cookies ever. 

Then Spencer shaved his beard. I have some more pictures of that but they really deserve their own post. So get excited for those. 

I am a rude wife and made him keep his mustache for at least a day because I thought it was so funny. He was pretty embarrassed about it so we tried to sit in the back during church but then of course he got asked to help pass the sacrament so pretty much everyone saw him. Poor kid. Oh well, I thought it was hilarious. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend celebrating our Savior with your loved ones.

I literally can not believe it is March. February just flew right on by. And speaking of February, frugal february was a total bust. I probably spent more last month than I have in a lot of months haha. So I am going to work extra hard to save more during March...but I am not making any promises. 

I am love love loving this spring weather! It has been so good to actually be outside without freezing my face off. I also love having flowers in my house! I am definitely going to make more of an effort to have flowers in my house. Maybe that can be my goal for March haha. 

I really didn't have much to say in this post except that I am a happy kitten that it is no longer freezing and to let everyone know that I am horrible at saving money. So there you have it. A blog post about nothing.
