Project 365 - Week 3

Project 365

I don't know why, but it is HARD for me to remember to take a picture every single day. So I've been skipping some days, and then taking multiples on other days. The rule-follower in me is cringing, but I guess it doesn't matter that much...it's supposed to be fun, right?

So, a partial glimpse of our week (click to enlarge)...


How many of you all are American Idol fans? It was a very hard choice for me to choose between AI and The Biggest Loser, but AI won out. I think we need one of those DVR things.

And on the moonrise picture...I cannot tell you how PERFECT it was in person. We happened to walk out about 30 seconds before it sailed above the mountains. The combination of the light reflecting on the water and the dancing glow of the firepit was just...perfection. Of course with my cheapy little camera it didn't even begin to capture the magic of it...and I was sad you can't see the mountains in the picture. But I tried.

I'm going to be without my computer for the first half of next week - can you say severe withdrawals? I'm so dependent on this silly piece of technology - even for something as simple as looking up a recipe or a phone number. Sad, isn't it?

Have a great week, everybody!

Savannah is just beautiful! I've enjoyed your pictures!

And yes I am a huge Idol fan! Are you a bachelor fan?

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

That Savannah - she even looks gorgeous with bed head... :)
Love your pictures.
By the way, I saw the bloggy make over you did over at All's Fair in Love and Chocolate and WOW! You did an amazing job! I've been seeing your work pop up on blogs every now and then and remember when you were hoping for a bloggy make over and didn't think you could figure it out on your own! :) You do very well! Especially for having been self taught - if I'm right about that.

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

Oh - and by the way. A.dic.ted to American Idol! It's like my one show that I can't miss. Dave makes fun of me, but humers me on it.

Lisa said...

The one of Savannah laying on the couch with the paper is so cute! They sure are watching us all the time!

Heather of the EO said...

I love how you've got the collage thing going on. I hate it when the pictures don't do justice to the beauty of real life too, but we can all imagine the mountains :)

Sorry you'll have computer withdrawal, I would be out of sorts too!

See you soon.

Nise' said...

Sorry you have to be without your computer! Great pictures. I don't watch Idol until they get to Hollywood. Have a great week.

LuAnn said...

Great Pictures this week. Especially like the brownie photo.

Another Idol fan here!

Smilingsal said...

I find that I'm reading more these evenings and leaving the TV off. Good for you to fit in the walking.

Aspiemom said...

I like both AI and BL, but I chose BL and catch AI another night.

I really like your photo collages!

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

I feel the same way. I forgot all last week and then five of my pictures this week are from the same time. Whatever. I'm just trying the best I can.

Love the pic of Savannah reading the paper.

Elizabeth said...

I love the brownie picture. She looks so excited and so mischievous at the same time!

Enjoy your computer break. It'll only be hard for a while, then the withdrawal will subside and it'll be great!

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

Great pics...love the one of her looking at the coupons:)

Jenn said...

Great pictures! I understand the computer withdrawl! :) Oh, by the way, just wanted to say- wonderful job on Gwendolyn's blog. It looks great!

Rachelle said...

Phil and I both love the pic with her looking for deals. The coupons are upside down...SOOOOO adorable ;)

Life In Progress said...

That picture of Savannah reaching for the brownie is priceless! I love it.

Tater Mama said...

I love the picture of Savannah checking out the deals! Did she find anything good?!

Great pictures!

Sincerely Anna said...

As many pictures as I take it would still be so hard to keep up with it everyday. I'd "cheat" too believe me! I know you'll have fun looking back at these posts!

Love Savannah's new shoes!!

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

Oh Jackie, that fire pit picture is INCREDIBLE! Even if it didn't pick up everything you saw. I love love LOVE a fire pit like that, but then water and mountains with a moonrise all at the same time?? I agree, sheer perfection.

And, uh, that look on Savannah's face with the brownie, that's pretty much perfect, too. :-)

Rach@In His Hands said...

Jackie....you are seriously my long lost sister-friend. I realize that more and more.
I SO need DVR because I simply cannot choose between AI and Biggest Loser...throw in that Tuesdays are usually my evening to work. What's a girl to do when she only has one VCR?!
I sometimes forget to take a picture, too...that's usually when its 10PM and I'm photographing a random object.
Fun pics from this week!!

You have a great week, friend!

sara said...

I love the picture of her reading the ads!!! She looks like a pro!! So cute!

Great job and great pics!!!

Carolina Mama said...

These are really great. What a great thing to do! Thanks for 'visiting.' :) It's been a great year in 2008.

Kim said...

What great pix! I love your daughter looking at the ads like mommy does :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog, too. Yes, finding the cheddar made my day. No, made my week! We can get lots of cheeses, but they're all bland. Except for parmesan which you can't really slice and eat with an apple, you know?

Dena said...

Love your pictures! The one of your daughter looking through the ads was a sweet reminder of days when my girls did that. They'd get so excited if they'd see a coupon for a product we used. LOL

Erin K. said...

Love the shoes. And the bedhead. And the looking for a great deal. They are all adorable!

I'm right there with ya when it comes to the computer. A few weeks ago I couldn't find a phone number online and was like "oh no! what will I do!" and then I remembered that we have a little thing called a phone book. Remember those? =)

Edwina at The Picket Fence said...

Love the pics you have an adorable family. And yes I love American Idol, it is so funnnnny right now before they get serious.

Gretchen said...

I got DVR for my b'day one year, and I lurrve it. I know...it's extravagent. But guess what? Somehow other shows end up on the DVR, too. Shows like Star Wars Clone Wars...Golf...

You know...my faves.

Glad you like AI. Fun show. One that we can watch as a fam.

Darling pics. Moonrise was cool.

ttm said...

Little Miss Savannah is so expressive! Her eyes tell you so much in the brownie picture, and even with bed head she looks great! I especially love the moon picture, so perfect!

Lois Lane II said...

DVR is AMAZING!!! Seriously, I love it.

Growin' with it! said...

i love how you do these collages...so what's your trick?

Rachel said...

I love how you do the collage effect! I wish I had time to sit down and organize my pics like that and caption them all. Yours are always wonderful!

Tracy's Porch said...

This project is just sooo cool.

I have seen the collage look on several blogs. How do you do that? Is there a template somewhere??

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

I've wanted to do that Project 365 for a long time...I need to remember that for next year.

Would you believe I've never watched AI? I think I'm the last one of the planet not to jump on that bandwagon.

I know you'll feel the computer withdrawals, but just think how much you're going to get done!

Carolina Mama said...

Hi Jackie! Looks great, thinking of ya!

Growin' with it! said...

i love the look on her face when she's grabbing the goodie...like "hmm, well what do we have here?"! cute.

Alana said...

You almost lost me at "i think we need of those DVR things". YES, you need one! I am not kidding when I say it will change your life...for the better!

How did the half week go without the computer...merely the thought makes me shudder! ;-)

MoziEsmé said...

Cute pics! I know all about computer withdrawal. Lack of internet is painful enough - but I've got every organizational tool on my computer and can't get anything done without it!

Willow Tree said...

I wish I'd jumped in on the project at the beginning of the year, but now I've got a headstart on 2010's resolutions, lol! Great Pictures!

Blessings, Carolynn
