PHOTO-A-DAY


i instagram way too much, is the long and short of it. sometimes i wonder to myself, "should i show some restraint?" my mother always taught me that a lady should show some restraint. 

in january i did the photo a day challenge started by @fatmumslim. it started off really fun and by the middle of the month i really resented having to do it. but i didn't quit! which is saying something. i mean, if you can't even finish an instagram challenge then what are you good for? ;)

here are all the photos from the month in one big dumb post. enjoy! 
















(somehow missing: day 23?)

  1. I love all your pictures!! I started with that one (although I don't have instagram yet, one day it will be on android) but I forgot half way through. I am going to try again this month, we will see how I do.

  2. Yep, I did it too because it looked like fun. I didn't quit but started getting bored around day 10. January was really long this year! What I am trying to say is that I love your instas. Can't get enough of a fashionable lady with an adorable baby and witty things to say. :)

  3. i'm officially intrigued and inspired enough to take something this foolish on for myself. the odds are not in my favor.

  4. I did one day of this challenge and it wasn't even the Number one thing. But Huck with the dog? Ridiculous!

  5. I started it and then immediately forgot about it!

  6. Wellllll, no iPhone yet, but I will very soon be instagramming to excess as well! I just have to tell you that Huck is the cutest chubby cheeked baby boy. I show my husband {a kid lover, but a man: not exactly one to fawn over other people's babies} pics you post of him and we both get all "aww, we hope our {future} baby has luscious little cheeks like his!" Adorable!

  7. Isn't Chantelle's "screen name" fatmumslim? Has she changed it or am I missing something? And I can't be left out!! :)

  8. I love instagram too, I tried the challenge but gave up on day five, lol. To my defense I was in another country with very little internet access SOOO I'm giving it another try this month. Well see how it goes!

  9. in 2010, i did a 365 project, which was taking a self-portrait EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR A YEAR! i agree, at a certain point, it's exhausting...especially when you're the subject every time!

  11. I just started the Feb challenge with FMS. It's only day 2 and I am totally into it.
    But I am worried about Sunday's challenge because it is 10am and I'll be in church.
    I don't have an iphone or any kind of phone that takes pics.
    So what am I to do?
    Just whip out my big ol dslr and snap some photos of the preacher?
    Hmm. We'll see what I come up with.
    Will I be sick of it by the end of the month?
    Only time will tell.
    Are you doing Feb?
    Love from,
    Greta

  12. I was so surprised to make it through the whole month that I'm giving February a shot too! not that I need encouragement to take photos :)

  16. Alright, I'll do it. Feb's a short month anyway...

  17. Man, I'm with you. It was all fun at first, then it was like, "oh snap, I forgot to photo-a-day" proceeded by frantically looking around the room to find something remotely connected to whatever the day's challenge was...Good times, but like you, I squeaked by. Whoop, whoop!

  18. So so into your delicate little necklace! I'd love to wear that every day.

  19. I don't have instagram (because I don't have an iphone- gasp!), but wish I did! I love all these photos. Huck is especially cute with his adorable lips and cheeks.

  20. Oh my I love this 'Photo a Day'. It's my first time hearing of it, besides the one that people do on Facebook, which is a 30-day challenge. Either way, how fun. I recently lost 5 years of pictures (you can read my meltdown on my blog) and need to make up for it . . . what a great way to start! Thanks.

    xoxo

  21. I don't have instagram either, but I still attempted to participate. Failed though. I am doing a 366 photo a day challenge that I put up for myself on Facebook. Just a little picture everyday of something that makes me smile or shake my head.

  22. Miraculously, I only missed one day (and made it up the next day). Getting towards the end I would forget all day then have to phone it in with some lame photo right before bed. But! I did it every day! Taking February off, but if she puts another one out in March I might participate. My instagram name is myfriendstaci!

  28. i did it and loved it. makes me take more pictures (although? now i only take pictures with my iPod touch. somehow i've completely forgotten about my regular camera, which actually has a flash and a few cool features? oh well! camera+ and instagram rock my world!)

    anyway, i'm soldiering on and doing february's photo-a-day challenge as well. we'll see when i actually stop. (maybe when i'm vacationing in sunny so-cal at the end of the month? but maybe not.)

    i'm theginabean on the instragram.
