Even though I have a new toy, I am a little bad about pictures this week.

But there was a milestone.

Itty Bitty practiced eating from a bowl.

I think she's got it.

Saturday, the Lost Day

We were working on decluttering.

Today has been spent cooking and decluttering.

How much stuff do ya have? I expect people are wondering.

3 packrats living under one roof makes for lots of stuff.

8/365 and 9/365 I Am Always Falling Behind

I am embarking on not only this challenge, but a writing one, a photography one AND decluttering.

I am insane.

Thursday 8/365

I am scanning old photos. So I got lost in the history of the hub's family.

We inherited a lot of family photos.

I want to keep them, naturally. But, I also want to share them with the other remaining relatives.



I spent a really big chunk of time winding floss onto bobbins.

This will pretty much take me forever but once I am done, I will not be buying duplicate colors anymore.

7/365 Another Found Heart

This was the one that was meant to be for today....Stupid UVerse.

Found another heart while baking cookies for the Munchkin.

6/365 Stay On Your Side of the Bed

I am trying to be neater.

I have started making my bed everyday.

Something I've NEVER done.

The hubs and I do NOT share covers. We're both cover hogs.


Did I mention that we were forced to upgrade our internet to UVerse?


It's fine, except when it isn't.

Like the last 2 days it's been completely wonky.

The bane of my existence.

4/365 Lights Meet Music

One of Itty Bitty's favorite things is lights.

Overhead, flashlights, holiday, and even loves the tiny orbs of light that show when something is on.

Her current favorites are the glowsticks. Actually they are sold as emergency lights in Cabela's. She has one of every color.

Her second favorite thing is her drum. She loves the drum. She also loves to explore the different sounds that emerge when she uses a spoon. Or in this case, a glowstick.

3/365 Hula Hoop Hoopla

We have hopped aboard the hooping trend.

I am all for exercise disguised as fun. Especially that has my whole family involved.

Even the baby wants to do it.

2/365 Reading

I am an avid reader, and am happy to find that I am raising my children to be too.

These are the reading chairs that currently reside in the baby's room. A small one and a larger one, perfect for an 8 year old and 21 month old.

3rd grade requires 15-20 minutes a day in reading, I am happy to say that Munchkin always surpasses that. And it tickles me to no end that a good chunk of that is spent with her reading to her sister.

1/365 Hidden Hearts

A friend of mine always finds hidden hearts in nature and I have since been on the lookout for my own.

I have had my sofa in the same place for almost 7 years. I have rearranged my living room a few times, but never the sofa.

Until last week.

But it took me almost a whole week to notice that my hardwood floor had a heart-shaped knot/hole where the sofa had been.

Here, I used the lomo setting on my camera. And the flash.

When I Instagram-ed it earlier I had neither flash nor fancy setting.

Stuff. And Things.

get in the way.

To name a few;

My father-in-law passed away.

My husband works more hours than he sleeps.

Itty Bitty is mobile.

3rd grade. With multiplication tables and reading logs and let's-visit-a-foreign-country days.

Even normal things are getting pushed to the side.

I barely get to drink a hot cup of coffee these days.

But, every day I try.

Every night I read.

And every day I take photographs.

These things keep me sane-ish.

So my 2014 project is Project Life.

A photo a day.

Just a little glimpse into daily life. Often mundane, but nevertheless it's mine.
