A Sneak Peek in my world

Its Sunday again…

Time to take a sneak peek in my world this week.

Every Sunday I am following along with a couple of fun photo challenges.

The 365 day challenges are a Fabulous inspiration…

taking a picture a day encourages me to capture more moments in my week

I love the challenge of capturing at least one thing a day!!

Ashley Sisk’s Sunday Scavenger Hunt photo challenge encourages me to capture things I would not have necessarily stopped to take a photo of…

This weeks challenge items were:  Texture, Button, Seventies, Beverage and Fog

This is how they played out in my world this week:

Sunday      23/365       Beverage

a Birthday Beverage for my sister Linda

it has become our tradition to buy each other Latte’s on our birthdays

Very satisfying birthday gift 3 bucks.  Time together ~ priceless.   =) 

Sunday was our Late Birthday Coffee date

Since I needed a beverage photo I took sister Linda to my favorite Coffee shop

b/c they never fail to give you foam art on your Beverage!!!

Monday      24/365

I made home made Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Not a great picture!!  I really hate our indoor lighting in winter!!

The recipe was compliments of Land O Lakes Butter!!  =)

I modified it… a little … I do that … a lot.   =)

The whole family LOVED them… Devoured them!!

*happy mommy*

I have been pretty successful eating mostly gluten free for 2 weeks now

and my fussy digestive system is forever grateful…   I think.  =)

Tuesday     25/365     Seventies

1974 to be exact

once upon a time my hubby played with this cool toy when he was a boy

ok.. that sounded funny… I think I will not edit it!!  =)

I love that our little boy plays with toys my hubby used to play with

A couple of them are made in England

Dinky Supertoys

this one is my favorite I think

it kinda reminds me of the bus Harry Potter rides in Prisoner of Azkaban

doesn’t it??

anyway this baby goes for a pretty penny on ebay (er it did a couple years ago)   =)

I looked it up for fun!!

taking these pictures inspired me to take photos for a 1970’s post

of the things my hubby and I kept from our childhoods

the things our littles now use

and I found a few funny things in the kitchen that are 70’s as well!!

hoping to get that post up later this week!   =)

Wednesday      26/365     Fog

Lucky me… we had a foggy morning this week!

We walked Abby to school in the fog

it was cold… but beautiful!

and I love birds… birds on light posts… birds on a wire…

or in this case birds on a baseball batters cage?  what is that called?


I think Sammy really enjoyed looking at the foggy world !

We couldn’t see very far in front of us that morning…

which really is the way Sammy sees every day anyway…

interesting reminder for the mommy this week.

*sigh*    sometimes it breaks your heart

when you remember your little boy will have 20/200 vision his whole life

sometimes you wish he could see the details of this beautiful world we live in!

Thursday  January 27

it was warm and dry enough to ride bicycles outside…


It was great for the kids!!  =)

it was kinda cold… but fun!

Friday  January 28

On Thursday I happened upon a wonderful post about JARS…

I heart Jars!!    So FRIDAY I ran around MY house taking photos of my jars…

Monday or Tuesday I will publish my own post about fun ways to use Jars …

I will also link you Lindsey’s Jar post … as she inspired me to share my jars with y’all!

please don’t think I am crazy…

come back and you will see…

Jars are wonderful for you and me!!

sorry.  can’t help it.

Saturday        29/365         Texture    (and Buttons)

I made Cashew Chicken Stir fry for dinner… YUM!

look at all those yummy textures!

is that stretching it a bit?

and Saturday was my last day to capture


buttons really had me stumped most of the week

I have nothing with buttons

well… ok … nothing interesting with buttons

all week my mind kept drifting back to this little dress I used to LOVE on Abby

when she was 10 months old…

she is 10 years old now… who’s counting!!  =)

I think these were the first pictures I captured of her standing on her own ?!

She was cute as a button in this little outfit!!!

One of the things I loved about this dress

don’t laugh at me ok…

is that the back had buttons all the way down it   =)

I love love loved her little button down dress…

there are buttons from the neck down to the bottom of the dress…

when she had the sweater on … you could only see half of them…

sweet memories…

funny some of the sweet weird memories a mommy holds in her heart!


Today I took photos of those old baby photos (hard copies)

and made a collage out of them…

they turned out pretty good for photos of photos!!

Thats all she wrote folks!

Off to church …



PS   they are having a family fun talent show at church tonight…

What would you do in a fun family talent show if you had the chance…

just curious!!    =)

I tried to talk my family into dancing the Achy Breaky Heart dance jig…

we learned it for a horse birthday party Abby had a few years back

it was SOOOOOOOOO much fun teaching 10 little girls that dance…

and then watching them enjoy dancing after…

Sweet memories…

My family is having NOTHING to do with the talent show…
shy and reserved they are!

I am not doing it on my own either… I am a little shy!!   ha ha!

We’ll watch everyone else I guess…

What would you or your family do??   =)

ta ta for now!
