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.
Here’s what I came up with:
(a sleeping baby is always good in my book!)
(Ugh. Buying a new house is not all rainbows and roses.)
(My oldest daughter is obsessed with this miniature coffee cup)
(on a half-inch button)
(of two different alphabet activities this morning)
(Bonus points if you automatically heard “There’s an egg on your head and the yolk is running down, the yolk is running down.”)
(a few tiny blades of grass rising from the ashes)
(Dress-up, Minnie tattoo, play-doh, and pink nails … all within a half an hour this morning … before my coffee.)
(to friends she made at the library. We have GOT to get this girl to Disney!)
(of 31 years. Lucky coincidence that the 21st was my birthday!)
(dinosaur girl heading in to take a pretend bite out of my arm)
(Josephine on her birth day, her first birthday, second birthday, and today)
(Sassy Josie, aka, Ms. Whaddya mean, this rolling stool is only for doctors and nurses?)
(Good. Josie keeps asking to hold GiGi on her lap and telling me “We’re best friends!” Yes, life is very good.)
(I’m so lucky I spent mine with these turkeys. And that inflatable dragon. I loved that thing.)
(Trying to grow some grass up in here)
(got a little rain delayed)
(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!)
(my husband’s favorites, handed down from my parents)
I’m sure you already are, but are you following me on Instagram? What about the dynamic duo behind Sean Purcell Photography? Look at the inspiring stuff they have been up to lately!
