FaKebook Friday — The Summer Highlights

It’s FaKebook Friday!!!!!!

Man, it’s been waaaaay too long since I did one of these! In case you have absolutely no clue what I am referring to… Here’s the skinny:

FaKebook Friday – the phenomena in which life looks perfect on social media and yet, it’s all FAKE. FaKebook Friday is an attempt to uncover the social media layer and reveal the “real” behind the post.

Since I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, I thought I would do sort of a highlight reel of the summer. Here goes nothin’!

This photo is in black and white because dog pee has made our backyard look like aliens are trying to communicate via crop circles and James is wearing 2 different pajamas. But aren’t they just so sweet?  Five minutes later, they were trying to claw each other’s eyes out. Precious

We are only smiling because we were still sitting in the driveway. 16 hours later these faces looked a little different.

It was miserably hot and stupidly crowded.

I fell down and I sat in sap.

She watched the movie for less time than it took for me to pose, edit, and post.

It was a work night… we left early.

This quickly became Rosie’s pool and it’s just not big enough for a 70 lb dog to co-splash in.

This is all fake. All of it. We cried, we yelled, we fought, we are only faking smiles because we made it. Grams got to see the realest version there ever was.

They are eating on the side of the road because… jelly. #newcar

No one slept more than 37 minutes straight the night before because I was too lazy to set up the pack-n-play. However, MaryGrace is NOT ready to sleep without one. I was slamming coffee and trying to fill the kids with as much free food as possible.

I make these for the teachers because I have an entourage and I don’t work in the classroom, like ever. Also, Payton was too embarrassed to give this to his male teacher. Whatevs.

The summer brain rot was a real thing and these guys were making me crazy that day. This “cram session” was part punishment and part mom guilt.


Well there you have it! The [Real Life] version behind a dozen of our summer posts!

Hope you enjoyed!
Can you relate?
Which one was your favorite?

I dare you to debunk one of your own posts and hashtag it #FaKebookFriday or #FBF

Until next week!
