It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣

There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it.

Instagram Announces IGTV and We Can’t Wait!

If You Love It, Share It!

On Wednesday, June 20, 2018, Instagram announced a new in-app experience large enough to compete with YouTube and Snapchat and we couldn’t be more excited about it!  While we are a fan of all social media, Instagram is by far, our favorite!  IGTV is yet another brilliant way to give creators like me, a place where we can express ourselves through different types of media and helps us to reach a larger audience without having to bounce back and forth through many different platforms. Instagram never ceases to amaze me. Bravo!

Here’s a little bit more about IGTV, from Kevin Systrom, Co-Founder & CEO:

IGTV, a new app for watching long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators. While there’s a stand-alone IGTV app, you’ll also be able to watch from within the Instagram app so the entire community of one billion can use it from the very start.

igtv, ig-tv, instagram, video, instagram video, creator, instagram creators

IGTV is different in a few ways. First, it’s built for how you actually use your phone, so videos are full screen and vertical. Also, unlike on Instagram, videos aren’t limited to one minute. Instead, each video can be up to an hour long.

We’ve made it simple, too. Just like turning on the TV, IGTV starts playing as soon as you open the app. You don’t have to search to start watching content from people you already follow on Instagram and others you might like based on your interests. You can swipe up to discover more — switch between “For You,” “Following,” “Popular” and “Continue Watching.” You can also like, comment and send videos to friends in Direct.

Also like TV, IGTV has channels. But, in IGTV, the creators are the channels. When you follow a creator on Instagram, their IGTV channel will show up for you to watch. Anyone can be a creator — you can upload your own IGTV videos in the app or on the web to start your own channel.

igtv, ig-tv, instagram, video, instagram video, creator, instagram creators

Instagram has always been a place to connect with the people who inspire, educate and entertain you every day. With your help, IGTV begins a new chapter of video on Instagram. We hope it brings you closer to the people and things you love.

What do you think about IGTV? Will you use it? Comment below and let us know your thoughts!

IGTV will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks on Android and iOS. You can learn more by visiting the Instagram Help Center.

    I like that Instagram had added to their features rather than taking away from them. I was worried they would switch IG Stories for IGTV

  • What Corinne Did
    June 25, 2018

    IG TV is such an interesting new feature! It is opening so many possibilities! can’t wait to see what content creators will do with it!

  • Princess Quinn
    June 25, 2018

    Wow, IG is now leveling up their game. For me, it becomes more of Facebook. Social media sites are really powerful. And, this seems to be a great new way to connect to people.

  • Casey
    June 25, 2018

    This is huge stuff from IG. I can see this is going to be a real competitor to YouTube. As ever so easy to do live streaming or videos on your phone, I can see there will be so many people moving away from YouTube to here.

  • Tina Hogan Grant
    June 25, 2018

    There is so much out there, it’s too much to keep up with and monitor. How much social media does one need? I focus on just a couple and make the most of those.

  • Julie
    June 24, 2018

    Slow down technology! I just got the hang of Facebook ? but really, this is awesome and is going to do wonders for marketing!

  • Amy Dong
    June 24, 2018

    Oh, wow, that will be a huge new development for sure. I’ve done vids before, but this new option will definitely up the ante!

  • Ally

    Instagram TV?! I’m honestly surprised I haven’t heard of this, as a millennial I am really out of touch with social media and technology. It definitely sounds interesting.

  • Sayanti
    June 24, 2018

    I am even so excited about IGTV and it is indeed a good option for content creators of Instagram, because now they don’t have to look for other platforms for posting lengthy videos

  • Kristi Ann
    June 24, 2018

    This sounds really cool!! I’m definitely going to check it out!

    Instagram is my favorite social media platform and its getting better and better. I just started my travel account so I am very excited to create videos. Thanks for the post!

    Instagram is my favorite too. But I’m not really sure yet if I’ll use IGTV. We’ll see.

    This is so interesting! I had not heard about this new Instagram app. I will have to check it out. It’s a goal of mine to start doing more video. Thanks for all the info on it!

  • Yolanda Williams
    June 23, 2018

    While great in theory I doubt I’d actually watch an hour long video. I don’t watch YouTube videos that are longer than 5 minutes. So this will be interesting to see. But I like the IGTV thing at large

  • Danielle Schaffer

    I am so interested to hear about this! Sounds exciting and also a little weird!

  • Mr. MFC @ Morning Fresh Cent

  • Crystal
    June 22, 2018

    I think this is great! I mean, I’m torn between – OH CRAP something else to do- and WOW! how fun! Haha! I do love that they have vertical video though. It will be interesting watching this one roll out.

  • Cristina pop
    June 22, 2018

  • GiGi Eats
    June 22, 2018

    Not going to lie, I totally could wait, and I am kinda bummed about this! I don’t like it so far – it just makes IG look way too busy and it’s distracting!

  • Kelly Moyer
    June 22, 2018

    This looks awesome. I will have to check this out.

  • Mallorie Owens

    Not super into it, but I know a lot of people are excited. Trying to stay off my phone lately and not have more things sucking me in!

  • Stacie

    Instagram TV is going to be a game changer! I can’t wait for this update to drop so I can give it a try.

  • Jenni LeBaron
    June 22, 2018

    Interesting. I wonder if this will eventually replace the insta-stories down the road. I’ve yet to jump on the video stories bandwagon yet, but I like to have the option.
