30 Day Photo Challenge: Day 12 (finally!)

So it took me a few days to finally catch a sunset. I'm just usually putting Greyson to bed around the time the sun sets. Anyway, here's looking West from our front porch :) Sometimes we have some awesome clouds that turn every single color before the sun finally sinks, but it happened to be a really clear night last night.


Tomorrow: Day 13 - Myself with 13 things

I haven't forgotten!

I just wanted to write a quick post to say I haven't forgotten about the Photo Challenge, but I missed the sunset last night to take it's picture! Hopefully I'll catch it tonight....

30 Day Photo Challenge: Days #10 and 11

Day 10: A childhood memory

Well here's one of mine (I put this on facebook already, sorry)
I'm the one in the white sneakers and pink socks. This has got to be about 1995 or so because my little sister (the one in the red shoes) is about 2 or 3 there. Isn't she so cute in this picture?? I love her little dress. Almost as much as I love Harmony there on the left (one of my best friends in the world). This was taken when we lived on a street called Fruitvale in Valley Center, CA., on a rock wall outside of our little apartment. I probably had the most fun living there that had at all my other homes combined. Harmony was a frequent visitor because she was my friend and also her brothers were friends with my brother and the boys who lived upstairs. And then there were two neighbor boys who were our age (Jeff and Joe, where you at?) and we were basically one big commune of kids. SO fun.

And here's a picture of one of Greyson's future memories from the other day:

Oh yeah, I let him play in a pot of water :) he had a blast. There was two pots of water but the smaller one he figured out how to dump. But this one was big enough that I could fill it full enough to be heavy. This was super entertaining for about a half an hour.

Day 11: Something Blue

And here's a blue picture of me and my sister and Harmony AGAIN about 13 years after the picture on the rock wall. It's blue because we were visiting Harmony's campsite and they had a great big blue tarp over the area as shelter, and it put everything in a blue light.


Tomorrow: Sunset

30 Day Photo Challenge: Day #9

Someone you love
Didn't see that one coming, did you? But here he is, my main man. This kid is the only constant no matter how I'm feeling, thinking of him always makes me smile, and there's nothing I'd rather listen to than him playing. Oh yes, he can be a total pill sometimes, but aren't we all? He's only human :) Love, love, LOVE him.


Tomorrow: Day #10 - Childhood memory

30 Day Photo Challenge: Days # 7 and 8

So sorry I skipped yesterday! Actually, I had it all ready with my pictures and then something happened and I couldn't find where I put them :( so we're catching up today!

Day #7: Fruit

So apparently I don't have any fresh fruit in my house. So I have lemons, baby food fruit, lemon juice, and juice. I think I might even have some frozen fruit. If I had the time I'd get all creative and make a cool set up for the fruit, but you're getting mock fruit in a fruit bowl :)

Day #8: A bad habit

So if you can't read what it says on the left hand side of my wallet in my picture holder, it says "If you spend that money, you'll be that much poorer!!!" It's sort of silly, until you realize that it works! When I see it, I remember my goal is to not spend money. I don't buy big things, it's usually stupid little fun things, and let me tell you, that adds up! So I printed a bunch of these little strips and put them everywhere I would be if I was spending money, i.e. on my computer, in my wallet, and notice I even wrapped one around my credit card. But this is totally helping me!


Tomorrow, Day #9:  Someone you love (awww...)
