Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
It’s August people! Yep – our summer has literally flown by…good thing I’m not a huge fan of summer (and I have a summer birthday too). On the other hand, I love Autumn…so bring it!

Oh, how do you like my new website? I’m sure there are a few kinks to work out of the system, but I think it’s pretty awesome. However, I don’t think WordPress uses Google Friend Connect (not that it matters now that they’ve moved to Google+), so be sure to subscribe to Ramblings and Photos by Ashley Sisk via my RSS feed if you want to continue following me (and I really hope you do).

With that said, welcome back to the Scavenger Hunt. If you’ve participated in the Scavenger Hunt in the past, I hope this week’s items inspired you. If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt…WELCOME! Next week’s items are sponsored by Mortal Muses’ Mobile Monday, Anika Toro and Paper Heart Camera.
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots).
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  5. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (we have so many new participants each week, this is the only way I know to be inclusive).
  6. Have fun!

Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Going Back in Time

In my highchair RS

I am in the process of collecting photos of me and my husband as babies. My mom sent a stack of my photos a few weeks ago (and I had some on my computer) because we were curious as to whether or not Felicity favored me any as a baby. I’ll put together a much larger post with pictures of both of us (me and my husband) to compare our baby pictures with hers, but for now you can admire me as a cutie patootie.

2. Something Just for Me

IMG_8619 RS

This is going to have to be symbolic, because the two things I’m really able to do just for me right now is shower and sleep. I can’t very well take a picture of either of those activities, so you get a picture of Felicity sleeping…which of course is exactly when I can do what I need to do for me. Speaking of which, I need a shower.

3. Best Part of My Day

Even though my husband works from home, he is very disciplined about staying focused on work during the day so he can enjoy some family time in the evening (unless of course I really need his help doing something). However, the time he spends with Felicity is priceless…she loves hanging with her daddy. Look how she points her finger at him.

4. Night & Day

This is a mouse-over image. On her “due date” earlier this week, I had a little photo session with Felicity. She was sleeping so peacefully that I took a few shots of her wearing one of the smocked gowns she got at my shower in June. In one moment, she was sound asleep and the next she was screaming bloody murder. That’s kinda how it is around here night and day.

5. Look Up

IMG_8573 BW RS

Another moment with daddy. When Felicity is awake and alert, we try to take advantage of that time by playing with her a bit. I often pull out her activity mat, the development board or just sit and talk to her. Her daddy enjoys making up rhymes and tickling/blowing on her belly.

So, what were your interpretations of the items this week? Be sure to load your pictures on your blog (or your Flickr photostream) and link up at the bottom of this post. Feel free to grab a button to display on your blog along with your scavenger hunt items. The linky will be open until Tuesday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, here are your items (these can also be found at the bottom of my blog each week), sponsored by Mortal Muses’ Mobile Monday, Anika Toro and Paper Heart Camera.

  1. Mobile (referring to mobile phone photos)
  2. Hanging by a Thread (Anika’s suggestion)
  3. Collage (Anika’s suggestion)
  4. Always Look on the Bright Side (Anika’s suggestion)
  5. Home (Paper Heart Camera theme for August 12)

Again, thank you to the Mortal Muses, Anika Toro and Paper Heart Camera for so many great scavenger hunt items. If you’d like to contribute items to the list, just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way – and I appreciate all of you that have submitted lists already…my SHS file is quite happy). Each week, I will select one reader’s prompt list, add those items to what is currently on tap and give the selected reader a shout out on my blog during Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Happy Shooting!


    Awww. Love these photos. So funny about the night and day. I almost did something similar with Dustyn. Him either sleeping or relaxing then him being wild and crazy. ha ha.

    She is so adorable! I love the mouse over picture. That’s about as real life as you can get.

    Gorgeous photos, love the day /night!

    You were quite a cute baby!! Love the Night & Day photo. So cute!

    like your new digs around here! glad to hear you are enjoying this very special time!

    Love the mouse over!

    The mouse over night and day shot is my favourite. I can’t get over how much hair she has and I love the little waves and wisps . . . so cute.

    She is so sweet! I’m so happy you keep posting her pictures because they are getting me through the next several months until baby boy arrives. :)

    Your daughter is beautiful! Your night and day picture had me laughing. I know just how that goes! I was thinking I should have posted pics of my two boys because they are complete opposites sometimes. Too late for that now!

    Felicity just gets cuter with every post! And your night and day shots….oh my goodness, it’s cute and funny at the same time! Love it!

    So fun to see how you can spin Felicity into these prompts. She is a true doll baby! I’m still loving that smocked dress!

    I can’t get over that hair! She is so precious and I love seeing her in the prompts!

    These are such sweet shots of Felicity. I esp. love the one of her in b/w.

    Ashley she is just so precious and beautiful!! I love how you are capturing all of her expressions. You sure were (and still are!) a cutie patootie!

    Awwww so adorable!! I adore the pic of you as a little girl :D And Felicity is growing more and more beautiful :)

    That mouse-over night and day was priceless! All of them were wonderful, but that one just said it all!

    Your daughter is so adorable.

    Just so you know, I am still landing on the blogger website.

    Felicity is so adorable! Love seeing her grow each week! I just love her smocked dress. What a well dressed baby she is!

    I’m not seeing a new website. Am I doing something wrong?

    A couple adorable babies there! :) LOVE that last shot.

    What a sweet baby girl :) Glad you are having so much fun. Also glad you are able to get a shower!

    Ashley your pictures are beautiful as always. I love your night and day :)

    These sure are perfect Ashley!!! It all will get easier on the schedule I promise.

    Hi Ashley,
    Great snapshots! Love the night and day shot, she’s a cutie. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

    Wow…mommy it is. I can’t tell whether or not your little one looks like you as a baby. Maybe too soon. she is sweet. Love that mouse over, b/c from what I hear, that’s really the way it is. I’m going to remain an aunt and leave the mothering and screaming to someone else.

    awww ashley, too cute for words!! night & day, WoW!!

    So cute. The night and day is so good. Reality!
    Thanks for hosting.

    Oh so cute…just love that last one!

    Aw, such sweet interpretations Ashley! What a beautie she is! Love that pic of you as a baby, and your night and day is awesome ;)

    Have a great week!

    Oh Ashley what a mouse over! I used to have turn on the vacum cleaner on beside the cot and just leave it running with my youngest and then he would go off to sleep again. I must have spent alot of time while pregnant hovering LOL.

    Sorry but I just never got around to doing the hunt this week – I tried but none of my shots fitted the themes. Hope to make a better effort next week.

    These are all so good!

    These are such cute shots.. She is so pretty…

    Beautiful, beautiful images!! She has the most beautiful eyes!

    I love how you can fit Felicity into every prompt! That just goes to show how personal these interpretations can be, and that’s what makes SHS so fun and interesting. I loved your “Something Just for Me” shot and your commentary made me laugh.

    She is so adorable and I just love her name!! =) when my first baby was born hubby worked from home and it was a huge blessing… sometimes he would work with her on his legs and she would coo at him while he worked… in the early days! such sweet memories! Hard to believe y’all are building memories every day with her… one day you will blink and wonder how it happened so fast! yikes! =) oh … and I still have a big hole in my blog where wordpress took away google connect! one day I’ll fix it! maybe? ha ha! =)

    She is such a cutie and I just love that dress. They’ll be plenty of photos for the September Top 5 :)

    By the way, where did you get the development board?

    These are all precious! I love your night and day photo especially! So funny! Of course, that is easy for me to say since I am no longer in the thick of raising a baby. :)

    Love the pics girl…I am not seeing your new website..still landing on blogger…

    Love these! Felicity is such a pretty baby!

    Your Felicity is just divine! Beautiful photos Ashley. Isn’t it the best, just sitting staring at them and letting the hours slip by!

    So adorable! They are all so wonderful but Look Up really catches my eye. Have a great week.

    These photos are priceless!!

    Your baby girl is precious and that dress is adorable! You are still showing up in my blogger feed as usual. In fact if you hadn’t said anything I wouldn’t have noticed anything different about your blog. It is coming in the same as always. Did you basically keep the same blog but just move it to WordPress? Anyway, I’m seeing everything just fine!

    Gorgeous Photos Ashley <3
    and I adore the Night and Day! HOW TRUE! they can seriously change from minute to minute! SO SWEET that your hubby spends such quality time with her!

    Lovin’ the new design. And as usual, your photos are awesome! :) I haven’t been here in a while. I’m glad to join the hunt again! :)

    Loving the new site it is GORGEOUS and very easy to navigate :D – nice one!

    Pictures of Felicity are adorable as always! Love the new website!

    Cool new site! :D

    And that baby girl gets cuter every time I see her. :D :D Love the mouseover!

    Yey I can comment now!! I love the new site. It looks amamzing. Great photos as usual. Can’t wait for next weeks SHS.

    Oh, I just can’t get over how she’s growing and getting so big! Enjoy your shower! ;)
