Lookie Lookie Lookie.

Instagram is the coolest. 
Ever since it came into my life, I've all but kissed my poor, neglected Twitter account goodbye.
In January, I tried to complete Fat Mum Slim's 'photo-a-day' challenge. 
I pretty much failed miserably.
I completed only about 16 days out of the month.
I've been known to bore easily on creative endeavors.
I've always been the kind of girl that colors half the picture, then starts a new one.
Paints half the canvas, then paints over it so I can begin again.
Completes half the project, and embarks on another.
Well, you get what I'm saying.

But, here are some of my favorite shots from last month.
No rhyme or reason.
Just supreme cuteness emanating from my little man....
and a few pictures of yummy food and pretty places.

living room tricycle rides
Hudson "reading" my Bible
cupcakes cupcakes cupcakes
winter skies
harmonica playing

seeing Sherlock Holmes with my love
Alabama won the National Championship
we love to read AND play cars
lazy days and cozy socks
highlights\\
The Giving Tree makes me cry
sushi makes me smile
picked out new glasses
sunshine
wasted lots of time playing temple run

p.s.s. My Shabby Apple GIVEAWAY is open until Monday at midnight!!

Laura Elizabeth said...

You still have to add me on instagram. I may have told you that I was under a different name... so my correct name is Skaramouche on IG- accept my friend request... or else!! Haha, I'm the least scariest person so you have nothing to worry about :)

Good luck with the February one, your comment on my blog about your "stranger" pic has me curious to see who your lucky stranger was!!

Meri said...

I still don't entirely understand what instagram is- do you have to have an iphone? I have an Evo and i'm not sure I can get it. It sounds cool though!

Haley K said...

yay for instagram!! Goodness, I struggle with using any of my iphone pics without adding some sort of filter or frame! haha :) And maybe I'll hop onboard with the february photo-a-day thing!

i loved your photo round up! Trike rides in doors, Hudson's sweet little bible study, and your fab new glasses are my favorite! :) Great images Ash!

Nnenna said...

I love Instagram and am always thinking, "Oh, I should instagram that!" haha :) These are such cute snapshots!

Leenie said...

I totally know what you mean about starting a challenge then half-way through starting over! Sounds like me allll the time, but it's totally okay. :) Your photos are all remarkable!

Megan said...

I swear, Instagram is the main reason why I never plan to switch from an iphone. I love it so much! I've yet to try one of those photo challenges, maybe March though? Haha. Y'all are too cute, love all of these.

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

I'm doing the February photo a day things... I am really hoping I can complete it! I don't have Instagram because Android is dumb and doesn't have it, but I've been editing them in a different app. Cute pictures, hope you had a great weekend!

Blaze said...

Fun! I love these captured moments! So precious! :)

Faith said...

jeannie said...

I love looking at Instagram. I get to see a little of what Hudson does in a day. The one where he is in his room reading is the best!!!

Courtney B said...

I NEED an iPhone because I NEED instagram! Best app ever! Plus the cameras on the Droid suck :(
You changed your blog look again... LOVE it! I wish I was talented in html coding. My blog is in need of a make over, ha!
