January Monthly Memories

Ok everybody.  It's been quite a month.  I challenged myself to take one picture a day and, of course, I've got almost 100. ;P.  I'm a photographer, what can I say.  Well, I hope you guys have decided to join me in our Monthly Memories each month and January has come to an end so here is my monthly memories collage that sums up my January.

*It does not have to be a collage, just one of your favorite pics of the month.  Your choosing :).
*No strict guidelines, this is for fun.
*Please take the button with you :)
*Check out some other blogs while your here. :)

Sunday Scavenger Hunt

It's that time again.  Sunday Scavenger Hunt.  Themes for this week were Smile, Stand Alone, Rusty or Something Old, Artificial and Repeating Pattern.  Enjoy!
                                                                           1. Smile
My beautiful little princess

2. Stand Alone
I caught my kiddos trying to sneak a peppermint.  They dropped it and ran ;P.

3. Rusty or Something Old
An awesome bell right outside my backdoor.  Love it.

4. Artificial
One of the few artificial flowers in my house.  I'm not a big fan of artificial flowers.

5. Repeating Pattern
My son called me over and said, "mom, take a picture of this."  I thought, perfect, I need one of those. ;)

All for now.

Sunny Saturday

Holy cow, it was so wonderful to see the sun today.  I was beginning to think we would never see the sun again. ;P.  Today was Lowe's Clinic for the kiddos so they got to build a T-Rex.  It was very cool.  I didn't take my camera so no shots.  Sorry. Also I wanted to let you preview a little something that I'm working on.
Can you take a guess ;P.
Also, I've been talking about a challenge that I've been inspired to do.  Take a least one shot a day for a total of 366 pics this year.  January is almost over so I would like to compile some of my favorites into a little collage, but I want you to join me and I want to see yours as well.  On the last day of January, I will post my collage with a linky tool.  I would absolutely love to see yours and it doesn't have to be a collage; you could do just one of your favorite shots of the month.  This will be called our Monthly Memories.  Here is the button for January.
Thanks for stopping by
 Please make sure that you tell everyone who would like to participate.  We might not have that many people, but who cares.:)  Look for that post this week. :)  All for now.

Fun Food Friday

Well, I'm stuffed.  Tonight's dinner was quite yummy.  While we're sitting here watching Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie (I could watch this over and over again), I figured I would post our FFF pics from tonight.  Our Dinner was Teriyaki Chicken and Rice Casserole and dessert was Rocky Road Rice Crispy Treats.
 


This pic is for my mom.  See mom...... veggies ;P.

 
Little Princess took her ponytails out before dinner, thus the crazy hair.




Daddy got home late tonight, but he jumped right in. :)


I hope you guys enjoyed another Fun Food Friday.  If you would like any of these recipes, please send me a comment.  All for now.

Sunday Scavenger Hunt

I stumbled upon this wonderful little blog recently and jumped on her Scavenger Hunt.  It's so much fun especially since photography is such a huge part of my life and has been for so many years.  So here are my interpretations this week.  Enjoy!

1. Sunset
Caught this at a friend's house and couldn't resist.

2. Black and White
Caught this little beauty too.

3. A Day in my Life
Homeschooling my kiddos and my coffee

4. Four
This goes back to my absolute love of coffee and how quickly I go through it ;P

5. Colorful
I knew I could find colors in my little princess's room.  She's got so many colors and dresses in there that it's scary. :)
All for now.





Goodwill outfits

I thought I could share a few of the outfits I've snagged at Goodwill.  Both outfits were $7.50 a piece.  Hope you enjoy. :)

All for now.

Deal Day

Well, I love to shop and I've been told that I can always find a great deal.  In fact, my bestie and I (http://armywifedailylife.blogspot.com) talk every week about at least one great deal we got that week.  Today was no different.  I'll have some upcoming posts soon with my outfit finds.  Now usually I'm a goodwill girl and while I did go to goodwill today and snag an awesome outfit, my huge deal was at Old Navy.  Total value for all items purchased......... $196.70.  Total paid for all items...........$57.77.  Love it.  All for now.

Fun Food Friday 1-20-12

As we sit and watch Frodo Baggins, I thought I would show you the pics from our dinner tonight.  Our dinner was Creamy Chicken and Biscuits and for dessert, Mini Apple Pies, which I might add we're my recipe.  Hubby was quite impressed.  They were absolutely fantastic; a little addicting.  The entree was lacking so we added about 3 cups of frozen mixed veggies before we baked it and it was awesome.  If you would like the recipes from tonight's dinner, just let me know.  I didn't realize Fun Food Friday was going to take off like it has when I started it 2 1/2 years ago, but I hear from some of you that you do your own FFF now.  Soon I think I'll be creating a cute button for our FFF blogging.  I'm so glad to hear it took off.  Here are the pics from tonight.  All for now.
