Photo-a-Day: January*

On a whim, I decided to join in on the Photo-a-Day Challenge.  

Sure, it's mostly crappy iPhone photos semi-disguised with funky filters, but it's been a fun, easy way to memorialize life's mini-moments. 

For this month's installment, I followed the photo prompts seen plastered all over Instagram.  We shall see if this trend continues for the next 11 months or if I blaze my own trail.

I know.  I can feel you all on the edge of your seats.

*Oh, HEY, 1000th Post!  Probably should have planned something slightly more exciting... 


  1. I laughed when I saw the "none of my cute shoes" pic. I lived by pedicures at the end of my pregnancy. When you can't reach your own toes, it's amazing to look down and see that someone else has made them pretty!

  2. You make being pregnant look so good...love your style, esp the last pic!

  3. Your dog is so cute! My dog Sam looks really similar but he's a mix of jack russell/fox terrier/beagle? something else? He's about 35 lbs but really looks like a jack russell. Adorable.

  4. I love that last photo of you! The outfit, the bump, love it all!

    1. LOVE your dress in #26....please post where you got it... a pregnant lady who is running out of clothes needs to know:)

  5. can you let us know the february prompts?? i want to try this! and thank you for introducing me to CatPaint. that app looks amazing.

  6. Can I ask where you found your upholstered headboard? Love!

    1. The headboard is from Pottery Barn!


happy little comments!
