Disposable Diaries

Y'all remember the days of disposable cameras, right? I used to bring them to middle school and snap pictures in every period, between periods, at lunch, at school dances...anywhere & everywhere. And then I would beg my parents to take me to Walgreens to get the film developed. Waiting that hour to get those pictures in my little hands was pure agony. I always made sure to get double prints so I could share & trade with my friends. It was glorious.

Well my blog BFF, Meg, came up with a genius idea for a link up. Enter: Disposable Diaries.
I've been carrying a disposable camera around with me all week, capturing little moments here and there. I'm excited to share my favorites with you guys!

Here grab the button and link up the pictures that you took with your handy disposable camera this past week! (designed by the rockstar diva designer...aka Aubrey)


Before I share my pictures, I have to tell y'all a few things.

1. I kept leaving my disposable camera EVERYWHERE. I'm not used to carrying one around anymore, obviously.
2. I got an absurd amount of looks from people when I would snap a picture with it. Haters gonna hate...I'm just tryin to get my blog on, okaaaay?
3. The first place that I brought my camera to get the film developed "no longer offered that service." UM WHAT? Not gonna lie, that made me feel pretty freaking old.
4. I was so incredibly anxious to see how my pictures turned out. Like show up 20 minutes early to pick up my pictures anxious.

Please note: I decided not to edit any of these pictures. These are au natural, baby! Absorb the grainy quality.

Only the cutest picture on the planet. Adam & his puppy, Buck :)

Me hoarding all of the sangria during girls' night out. The norm.

Got my cardio in by chasing this little nugget around for over an hour. Way better than the elliptical...forreals.

I left my camera in Kellie's car one night by accident (told you I kept forgetting it). Well she thought it would be funny to snap this picture. I, in turn, thought it would be funny to post this picture. LOVE HER THOUGH :)

This was a surprise shot, taken the morning after birthday shenanigans. I'll go ahead an leave it at that.

A few of my besties just carrying me around Acropolis.

Adam cooked me dinner this week while I was studying (my personal trainer certification exam is March 28)...he's a gem, I swear.

A little look into Sunshine Therapy Day. I'm already ready for another one of those...praise the Lord for Florida winters.

And last, but not least, me getting busted sipping two sangrias at the same time. I'm pretty stingy when wine is involved.

Dang, well that got me feeling a little nostalgic. 
Did you take any pictures with a disposable camera this week?!
Meg & I want to see! Link up below so we can all go look at each other's great quality pictures...:)


  1. hahah i totally remember doing that, and i'd make my dad pay to develop my pictures. i milked the daddy's girl thing for all it was worth. and i laughed at how you would just leave it everywhere, i can see me doing that too. i like the snaps you caught, this was a really cute idea!

  3. So I didn't do this, BUT, your pictures remind me of like elementary and middle school pictures. Just with the quality and what not. Oh man. Disposable cameras are the best.

  4. BAH! These pictures are hilarious! I love the ones of you hogging the Sangria (that's my beverage of choice when I drink!)

    My post will be along soon! I got the dates of the link up confused! womp womp! Still can't wait to show y'all what I snapped!

    Like I told Meg, y'all are brilliant! :)

  5. This really is the most brilliant linkup ever. I am soooooooo sad I missed it and I just begged Meg to keep it up for another week so I can be late to the party. Seriously, I love it!

  6. What a fun idea! Those disposable cameras bring back memories :) All your pics are so fun - I love the one of you sipping from, 3 drinks!

  7. Such a cute idea! There's technically an app for iphones that has a similar idea, where you can't see what the pictures are like until you've taken a full roll!

  8. I love Buck! He is so cute!

    I wouldn't even know where to go to get disposable film developed, haha.

  9. Such a great idea! Now I really want to go out and get one myself! :)

  10. Oh, my gosh! I love it! And you're totally right. I would get doubles, too, so friends could have them, and we would cover our binders with photos. Oh, the memories!

  11. Oh the memories! Maybe for the next disposable diaries, we can share some of our favorites? I know I have tons of pretty embarrassing ones that I'd like to share, haha. Now I want some sangria!

  12. What a fun idea! I definitely remember the disposable camera days....at camp, homecoming, anywhere and everywhere!


I love reading your encouraging words :)
Seriously...every comment makes my day a little brighter!
SO THANK YOU for being wonderful!
