This month’s 10 on 10 is kind of a hodge podge of my 10 favorite images from the last few months.  Many of them were shot with my phone and processed on Instagram.  I love that I can use my phone to capture every day memories.  Lately, I probably wouldn’t have any photos if it weren’t for my phone.

And we’re back, folks.  Sheesh, if it wasn’t for this project I wouldn’t be picking up my camera all that often, so I’m thinking I need to stick this out for as long as I can.  This month’s 10 on 10 is from a super busy and fun day in July.  The hubby was out of town so I was solo with the little one for 8 days.  I was so afraid I wouldn’t be able to handle it on my own but we managed to keep busy and it made the time go by fairly quickly.  Many thanks to my BFF for suggesting fun stuff for us to do!

This is what our morning looked like because the girl woke up WAY earlier than usual and I was just too tired to get out of bed.  In fact, many of our days while Daddy was gone started off like this.


Getting ready.  Here’s a sneak at my makeup essentials.  See any of your faves?


And we’re on our way.  Kaya rockin’ her new TOMS and playing with her Fisher Price iXL.  Yes, she’s still rear facing.  Safety first!


Our local contemporary art museum has an annual Art Spree, with activities and performances geared towards kids and families.  Here’s my girl after her first face painting experience!  She looks a bit skeptical but rest assured, she loved it.  She is a girly girl at heart.


Making a clay ornament.  This will be on our Christmas tree this year.


Back at home, pretending to nap.  She might have slept for 30 min.  Not good.  Naps have been a battle her entire life.  Even as a newborn she rarely napped more than 45 min.  :/


She insisted on trying on her beanie.  Even though it’s 85 degrees.


Amazing what amuses kids.  She loves sitting in boxes.


That evening we headed to one of the local botanical gardens.  They also have an annual event for families and it fell on the same day as the Art Spree this year.  Here she is waiting patiently for her balloon flower.


Latest obsession: rubber stamps.  She could sit there for hours and stamp.

Thanks for stopping by.  Next, head on over to Melinda Meredith Photography‘s blog to check out her 10 on 10 for August.

I’m far from perfect, and, well, this month’s 10 on 10 is actually a 9 on 10 because I just dropped the ball.  The day started out well but a long nap and forgotten camera kind of threw me off.  Doh!  Anyhow, here’s how our day went:

Rainier cherries.  Love.


Another beach day.  Matchy matchy toes.


Post beach bath.  In case you’re wondering about the band aid, the girl had a zit (or something) a couple months ago that she would.not.stop.picking at.  For 2 months!  It finally healed, then she picked at it again!  So we’ve resorted to putting 2 band aids on it to keep her from touching it.  So far so good.  But I’m pretty sure she’s scarred for life.


Date night view, shot with my p&s (Canon SD1100).


Bedtime ritual.


Sleepy doggie.

Thanks for stopping by.  Now go ahead and check out what’s cookin’ over at Laurie’s blog, A Favored Life.
