SHS 8/5

It's time for Scavenger Hunt Sunday!
I love these assignments each week. I have such a good time with the prompts, trying to find new ways to look  at things.

Without further ado, here are my interpretations for the week.

Going Back In Time

The one on the right is my mom when she was 16, right before she got married. Isn't she just so beautiful?
I adore old photos, looking back into a time when I didn't even exist yet. It is so much fun to hear about what my parents did and how they lived before us kids came along and messed things up graced them with our presence.

Something Just For Me

I got an afternoon all by myself this weekend. While the hubby had the kiddos, I headed out for some much needed alone time.
This was my afternoon snack. Sonic Happy Hour drink and Twizzlers.
Don't judge me.

Best Part of My Day

Ahhhh, a lovely, quiet bubble bath before bed. Definitely the best part of my day.

Night & Day

I got this shot this morning during the sunrise. I love it when you can see the moon during the day. I always think it looks so cool that you can see both the moon and the sun and the same time.

Look Up

This is one of my favorite pictures of all time. Last year we went to the Albuquerque Balloon Festival. We had such a good time picking out our favorites. I snapped this one while there was a raging debate on the best one.

    Food for Thought

  2. These are so great! Love all the hot air balloons!

  3. Great set! I'm jealous about the balloon festival. I want to go! Your moon is gorgeous.

  4. Agree with Karen, great set. Bath-why didn't I think of that? I have yet to get a good moon shot. Can't quite figure it out-agree when it's morning and you can see it. It's like bonus.

  5. Those balloons are so gorgeous. What a fun place! My friend Marsha goes every year. Incredible! I love your afternoon snack! No judging here!

  6. Great moon! Love the balloons, as well.

  7. Gorgeous moon and love the last image!

  8. Your moon shot is lovely! I took a picture of the moon as part of my "night and day" set as well.

    We are lucky enough to go to a balloon festival every year. I LOVE it! Such great pictures.

    p.s. I love happy hour at Sonic too! Heavenly.

  9. Great shots - that bubble bath looks pretty sweet right now!

  14. Great "look Up" -shot! And your toe nails are just super cute... :D

  15. Your mom IS truly beautiful! And I adore that hot air balloons shot. I need to take my kids to see some of those. So....who won the debate?

    1. Janice, I did, of course. Just kidding, we all picked our favorites and I took pictures of each one for them. :)

  16. Great shots. Last one is my favorite its been years since I've seen a hot air balloon.
