A Photo An Hour

Last week, I finally got the chance to actually read a few blog posts and absolutely LOVED Meg O's post, "A Photo An Hour". Basically, you take one photo every hour of the day to document that day. It doesn't have to be a special day, or anything fancy...just any regular ol' day. Just take pics & post them! I mean, I shamelessly do that anyway...I might as well actually do something with all the pictures I've been taking.

Logically, I copied her idea and thankfully, she gave me permission so I thought, what better day to do it than last Friday, Beau's birthday. 

Here we go!

{work it. twerk it.} 

{more work. change of scenery.} 

{perfected this pumpkin spice pancake recipe for my work blog. hey, someone's gotta do it...} 

{secretly wished I could have been curled up right next to her at this time.}

{wrapped my birthday boy's prezzies...the lazy way.} 

{hit up the grocery store to pick up a bunch of snacks for Beau's party.} 

{picked up a very necessary birthday prop.} 

{enjoyed watching beau open his gifts. aka: picked up scattered tissue paper thanks to Oakley.}

See?! Now wasn't that fun?! Seeing that I already forgot 50% of what I did last Friday, I really enjoyed doing this!

Perhaps I'm the nosiest person alive but I LOVE LOVE LOVE knowing what people do on an everyday basis. And more than that, an hourly basis. Weird? Maybe. But I know there are others out there just like me wanting to know the same thing SO! we're turning this thing into a link up party! Whatdya say?!

That's right! Next Thursday, January 30, Meg O. and I will be hosting a one-time "A Photo An Hour" link up party for any and everyone who would like to participate with us! I want to live in a day in the life of YOU!

What this means for you? Sometime before next Thursday, you'll need to set alarms for every hour of the day on your phone. (12 hours should be sufficient.) Snap one pic every hour and then on next Thursday, post all of your pictures and head back here to link up with us! Easy enough, huh?!

Now...I only have one rule...I don't want to be the girl who throws a party and only one person comes so this is where you leave me a comment and tell me you're going to link up with us. K? K!

    1. It really is. I can't complain one bit. Though I'm sure high school kids are pretty entertaining on a daily basis! ;)

  2. So fun!! I gotta remember to join, although 10 pictures of me sat at my office working and freezing to death might not be all that entertaining!

    1. LOL well I'm used to it, by now, but I had to physically tell myself that even on the days I work from home I'd still wake up at the same time as the days I go into my office. Sometimes I get started on emails first thing, other times I take Oakley for a walk before my work day starts or I'll pick up around the house so I'm not tempted to do it during work hours. The fact that I don't have to get up and put on makeup and a suit and heels is incentive in itself to get up and start doing stuff! :)

  4. Oh I love this idea! I'm definitely down for this party. I will have to set an alarm though for sure...an hour flies by way too fast sometimes! I have the Keurig as well! Had the joy of priming it this past weekend...have you had the pleasure of doing that yet?
