Project 365 – Week 7

I did better this week, but still didn’t manage to get a picture every day.  I think I’m just going to turn this into a Week in Pictures post for a while.  I have been thinking about it and have pretty much decided that I am going to abandon the Project 365 for now and just do a week in pictures post to let you see what we have been up to.  I will be starting Project 365 up again on June 8th, which will be Cheyenne’s 4th birthday and I will be doing a Project 365 – Cheyenne….Age 4, and taking a picture each day through the year that she is 4.

So here is our Week in Pictures post for this week…Week 7.


Taking a break in our friends’ backyard….on Monday.


Cheyenne got 3 huge bags of clothes from her bestie, Alexis. This is one of the many adorable outfits…on Tuesday.


Cute new nightgown…on Wednesday.

I hope you all had a wonderful week as well!!

Project 365 – Week 6

Well, I knew it was bound to happen.  I’m just not capable of keeping up with an ongoing project….my life is a huge bundle of ongoing projects!!  LOL  Plus, these are the pictures from week before last, so I will have another post for last week’s pictures coming soon.  So I didn’t get a picture every day that week, but here’s what I did get…


This girl loves to paint…on Tuesday.


Cheyenne and her bestie, Alexis hanging out before we went out of town for the weekend….on Thursday.


Cheyenne’s first carousel ride at her cousin’s birthday party in Austin…on Saturday.

So that’s all the pictures I got for this week.  Hopefully I can get back into it and keep up.  If not, I am still getting good pictures every week and now that it is spring, we are getting out more, having more fun, creating new memories and documenting them along the way.  🙂

Project 365 – Week 4

I am so glad I have challenged myself to do Project 365.  Even if I only share it here on my itty bitty blog, at least I have committed to something and I hope I can follow through so I can look back and see a year’s worth of pictures and how our life has changed over a year.  This week, Cheyenne was feeling much better, was able to go back to school, get pamered and dress up with one of her besties, and enjoy Valentine’s Day.  We had a pretty good week and started getting back into the swing of things.


Valentines made and ready to go for her school Valentine’s Day Party…on Monday.


Working it on the runway at Sweet & Sassy…on Tuesday.

I’m so glad the sicky bug left our house!  Once Cheyenne got over it, it had a brief flirtation with me and has now left the building! Let’s hope it doesn’t come back any time soon, although I’m not holding my breath.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s week full of love and special moments with your families!!

Project 365 – Week 3

I completely forgot to post our Project 365 pictures for week 3.  My son had been over for a few days longer than normal and my normal routine and schedule just flew out the window.  Cheyenne woke up Monday morning coughing and by that afternoon when she came home from MDO, she was running fever, so she spent most of this week sick and I didn’t get a picture every day. But here are some of the pics I got this week:


Taking Texas Texas's temperature.

My sick little girl had to make sure she took her baby’s temperature too….on Tuesday.



Getting ready to do the first part of a salt watercolor craft…on Wednesday.


Valentine Heart Craft…on Friday.


Finishing up the Salt Watercolor craft…on Saturday.


New big girl bed….on Sunday.

So there is our week in a nutshell minus a couple of sicky days and being out of our routine.  I hope you and yours are all well and not being affected by this nasty cold going around!

Project 365 (week 2)

I’m so proud of myself for keeping up with this for 2 weeks now.  I was afraid I would miss a day, but according to my brother-in-law, my camera is practically glued to my hand, so I figured it wouldn’t be that hard.

Here’s our pictures for this past week (days 28-34):


"Taking a nap with her friend didn't last....on Monday.

Project 365

As usual, I am a little late to the party.  Just after the first of the year, I saw several people posting their Project 365 posts. The idea behind Project 365 is to document your year by taking a photo each day of the year to create a year long photo journal and to remember what is important in life. I got so mad at myself, because I totally wanted to do that and I forgot.  So I decided to start late…better late than never.

So here are our pics from this last week, days 21-27.

Silly Cheyenne
