Scavenger Hunt Sunday and Scripture & A Snapshot - February 26 - March 3, 2012

Hi, everyone! Wow! Is it really March already? Spring is coming up and we totally missed the ONLY snow this winter in Virginia. Today I saw several squirrels and lots of robins in our yard.

I missed the last two weeks of SHS and Scripture & A Snapshot. We were traveling. This week, I was lacking inspiration so I decided to used my phone for this week's items. iPhone photos are also edited on the iPhone. Here they are:

1. Routine
Monday- Thursday afternoon routine for my boys - homework!

2. Music
We sang this song in church this Sunday.

3. Technology
Aren't smartphones such amazing technology? You can play games on it (like what these three boys are doing), take pictures, edit pictures, and much, much more.

4. Show Me Your Style
Selfie - two weeks ago. This is the only shot for SHS this week that's not taken with my phone. I saw a shot similar to this on Pinterest and decided to copy it. I think it was an advertisement for a belt.

5. Mismatch
My cross trainer and my running shoe.

And here's my picture for Scripture and Snapshot.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday and Scripture & Snapshot - February 5-11, 2012

It is time for SHS and S&S post again? Where did my week go? Well... I spent a lot of it working out, eating well, and spending time with God. I welcome this "down time" for things I enjoy doing other than taking pictures.

Here are my finds this week.

1. Facial Feature
This kid is mine. Everyone says he looks just like me. Can you see the resemblance on our facial features?

This selfie is my first doing a face-front with no make-up; just lipstick. I was home all day and didn't want to do something to my face just for a selfie shot. :) This is for week 27.

2. Shadow
My view one morning this week. I love the "emotions" in the clouds and the shadows on the ground. Shot through the kitchen window. You can see the screen's texture on the picture.

3. Spicy
My husband fixed this really spicy chicken. It was good but it was a-kickin'!

4. Gold

5. Fabric
The only scarf I own. Must buy another one... or two.

And here's my submission for Scripture and a Snapshot. I love this promise from God's Word!
Matthew 7:7

Scavenger Hunt Sunday - January 29 - February 4, 2012

I couldn't believe it! This week in Virginia, we had two warm days - warm enough for sleeveless shirts and flip-flops! 65ºF!!! I was loving it but my boys are longing for snow days. We have yet to see snow this winter season. Did the ground hog see his shadow the other day? I didn't even keep up with that. Ha!

Here are my SHS items this week.

1. Strike a Pose
The weather was so nice, I just had to take a selfie outside in sleeveless and flip-flops.

And I want to add this fun photo:

2. Footware
This was from November 2011. I think this is my favorite selfie, by far! I made this as the cover of my photo book that I gave away as Christmas gifts.

3. Hobby

4. Shiny

5. Color Me Green
Since I had to slice the lime for this photo, I just had to make limeade. It was so yummy!

Scripture and a Snapshot submission. I love this verse. Such a great reminder for me.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday - January 22-28, 2012

It's been a good week. I was very good with eating well and doing my work outs. On Monday, I took my boys on a special dinner treat - gourmet ice cream and popcorn. They loved that. I got showered with hugs and kisses the rest of the week. I have sweet boys.

Here's my SHS items this week:

1. Smile
Reading a book makes me smile. Self-portrait. I am now on my 25th week of this year-long project. Half-way mark! 

2. Stand Alone
This was taken with my iPhone. I didn't have my big camera with me. We drive by this house when we go to the gym. The sun and the colors were just perfect, I just had to take a picture. Added a Kim Klassen texture to make it look like a picture on canvas and to mask the pixels a little bit.

3. Rusty or Something Old
Chandelier in a restaurant where I shot an event.

4. Artificial
Mouse on my computer. :)

5. Repeating Pattern
Paper cup for my cupcake

And this one's for the Scripture and a Snapshot link. This is a decor in our house.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday - January 15-21,2012

Hi, Blogging Friends!

I hope everyone is doing well and getting used to typing "2012." I still stuck on 2011.

I am so sporadic in my appearances on SHS. I was telling a friend on Thursday that it will be awhile before I link to SHS again but today I looked at the items and realized I have the 3 of the shots this week and I can pull out a couple from archive. So here we go!

1. Sunset
This was back in November taken in Pennsylvania during one of our trips.

2. Black and White

3. A Day in My Life
Cooking is part of my everyday life. Love it! I cook pretty much everyday.

4. Four
Taken back in October when my little one turned 4.

5. Colorful
Bubble gum for my boys!

And... here's my submission for Scripture and a Snapshot. It's been 7 months since the last time I linked to Scripture and a Snapshot!
Job 5:8-10

Scavenger Hunt Sunday - 10-17 December 2011

Seems like every week for the last 4 months gets busier and busier. My boys just finished their very first semester of regular school. We've always home schooled so this was a new experience for us. They made very good grades; I'm so proud of them. Now we are relieved to be on Christmas break and sleep in in the mornings.

Here are my items for SHS this week.

1. What Is It?
It is a very beautiful pottery made by the groom in the wedding I co-shot for today. You can see his signature at the bottom.

2. Children/Fur Babies Sleeping
After fussing for an hour, my little guy finally fell asleep.

3. Joy
Looks like candid but this was actually a posed shot. My middle son is an actor. Haha.

4. Window

5. Half

Today I had the privilege of assisting a wedding photographer at my oldest son's teacher's wedding. The day was beautiful although the temperature was nippy. It was a very simple but beautiful god-honoring wedding. Here are a couple shots from today:

Pull back shot of the bride, her sister, their dad, and the main wedding photographer.

And the good-looking couple - they are both Pastor's children. Very godly man and woman that God brought together after waiting for a long time for the right mate. So happy for Marcus + Dinisha.
