Photo Challenge Days 10-14

Another week of the challenge, and more fun pictures!

Day 10 - Childhood Memory

One of my favorite childhood memories can be found in this picture of a picture.

This was taken right after my first dance recital as a kid, we danced to Michael Jackson's Beat It (don't you love the ridiculously baggy pants?).  It's one of the only photos that I can find of me with both of my grandmothers who have sadly both passed.  I will forever cherish this snapshot, as well as the memories I have of those two amazing women.

Day 11 - Something Blue

Chris and I try to collect items to remember the trips we have been on.  I had to hunt through a couple of shops before finding the perfect sized, blue steel drum in Trinidad & Tobago.

This shot captures some extra blue in the form of our Las Vegas sign, and those tiles from San Antonio with our wedding date on them.

Day 12 - Sunset

Setting over the houses across the highway from us.

Day 13 - Yourself with 13 things

13 of my favorite DVDs in our collection: Saved by the Bell, Clueless, Vegas Vacation, L.A. Story, Wedding Crashers, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The O.C., The Sound of Music, Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, The Italian Job, The Incredibles, The Hangover, Dazed & Confused.

Day 14 - Eyes

I love my husband's eyes!  One of the features that I first noticed about him.  He likes to call them brown, but I think you'll agree with me when I say they're a little more hazel.

The expression he was making while I took these pictures was pretty hilarious.

What are some of your favorite DVDs?

Challenge originally found here, be sure to follow along with the rest of the bloggers and photographers who are a part of the challenge here.


  1. aw, i'm all emotional over the snapshot with your grandmothers! that's a wonderful picture.

  2. Aww, that's great to have a photo with both grannies! I don't have one, I honestly don't remember my 2 sets of grandparents ever meeting, living on different continents and all. They would have met at my parents wedding, but after that I don't really know how much they kept in touch.

  3. I absolutely adore your steel drum! And your snapshot of the photo with your grandmothers is too cute. I love it.

  4. Thank you! I was pretty emotional when my mom found the picture after my last grandmother passed, I quickly took it to make a copy.

  5. That distance would make it so difficult! My grandmothers lived in New Jersey and New York and I grew up in Philly so that did make for easier gatherings.

  6. Thank you! I love the drum too, always reminds me of my dad's heritage.
