Photo-A-Day Challenge

Hey, all! Veronica, your favorite featured blogger here! Hope you all are having a great week!

If you all are as obsessed with social media as I am, you are already hip to the addictive nature of Instagram. I just love being able to document the little snippets from my life that before had no place to go. Post them to “Timeline photos” on facebook? Make a folder labeled “Randoms”? (Yeah, I did both of those.) Now you can post them the Instagram and add those fun filters and frames. I adore it.

This month I finally took on a photo of the day challenge, and I’m proud to say I actually did it! There are tons of Photo-a-days out there, but I jumped on with Fat Mum Slim, one that I had been seeing for ages and never actually doing.

The spirit of Fat Mum Slim’s challenge is just so nice — take a minute, look around you, and see things a little differently, every day, all month long. All you do is take a picture inspired by the daily prompt and add the #fmsphotoaday hashtag.

In theory, it should be a picture you took that day and it should be your original picture. Mine from this month might not be works of art, but I followed those guidelines and am looking forward to doing it again next month and getting even better!

Here’s what I came up with:

PictureDay 1: Play  
Day 2: Blue
Day 3: Something beginning with A 
Day 4: This happened today
Day 5: Something good 
(a sleeping baby is always good in my book!)
Day 6: Air
Day 7: Dreamy
Day 8: On your plate
(Ugh. Buying a new house is not all rainbows and roses.)
Day 9: Tiny
(My oldest daughter is obsessed with this miniature coffee cup)
Day 10: A place 
(Grandma’s lap)
Day 11: Detail
(on a half-inch button)
Day 12: In the middle
(of two different alphabet activities this morning)
Day 13: View from my bed
(Bonus points if you automatically heard “There’s an egg on your head and the yolk is running down, the yolk is running down.”)
Day 14: Water
Day 15: Alone
(a few tiny blades of grass rising from the ashes)
Day 16: Your favourite color
Day 17: Busy
(Dress-up, Minnie tattoo, play-doh, and pink nails … all within a half an hour this morning … before my coffee.)
Day 18: Hello!
(to friends she made at the library. We have GOT to get this girl to Disney!)
Day 19: Button
Day 20: On your mind
Day 21: Fire
(of 31 years. Lucky coincidence that the 21st was my birthday!)
Day 22: Blurry
(dinosaur girl heading in to take a pretend bite out of my arm)
Day 23: Time
(Josephine on her birth day, her first birthday, second birthday, and today)
Day 24: I saw this person today
(Sassy Josie, aka, Ms. Whaddya mean, this rolling stool is only for doctors and nurses?)
Day 25: Life is …
(Good. Josie keeps asking to hold GiGi on her lap and telling me “We’re best friends!” Yes, life is very good.)
Day 26: Childhood
(I’m so lucky I spent mine with these turkeys. And that inflatable dragon. I loved that thing.)
Day 27: Earth
(Trying to grow some grass up in here)
Day 28: My Sunday
(got a little rain delayed)
Day 29: I wore this today
(It’s been an awfully long time since I wore any jewelry other than my wedding/engagement rings. Apparently I also need some good hand lotion, STAT!)
Day 30: Glasses
(my husband’s favorites, handed down from my parents)
Whew! I did it! If you want to also, the list for May is out.
