Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Happy Sunday…and happy belated birthday to my dad (his birthday was yesterday). Did everyone have a good week? I think I’ve fallen into full blown nesting, so blogging has fallen by the wayside. In fact, yesterday I must have played with our stroller/infant carrier for at least 30-45 minutes…after washing bassinet pad covers and sheets…and after doing a little post-shower shopping. My back hurts a bit now as I’m writing this post, but I do love doing stuff like that. 
Anyways, let’s get 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 Tayet Silverspoon:
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. Shine
Shiny Rattle RS
I didn’t get around to the Scavenger Hunt until yesterday afternoon…and by yesterday, I mean Saturday at 2:30 pm…just before Casey came over to take some maternity Photos. When I think of “shine,” I immediately think of the sun. It didn’t really get sunny though until late late afternoon, so I went with an alternate interpretation…a shiny baby rattle.

2. Fast
IMG_7063 BW RS
This is the only photo (photos) that I did not take this week. I am still editing Zan’s 9 month portrait session (in fact, I really need to finish these up). As I was sorting through my photos, I recall how fast he was moving. Pre-pregnancy, this would not have been a problem. Pregnant, I am way too slow for this little mover.

3. Left
Left Frame Doll RS
This baby toy is left-aligned. Creative right?

4. Peace
Enjoying a Little Peace RS
I decided to take a photo of our bassinet to illustrate “peace.” We better enjoy these st few moments of peace and quiet now – I know they will soon be gone.

5. Plain
Plain White RS
For some reason, “plain” really tripped me up. However, when I look at our little girl’s bathroom, the white shower curtain on white does look kinda plain. I prefer classy…and the splashes of pink that you don’t see in the picture really doll it up.

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 Tayet Silverspoon:
  1. Travel
  2. Silly
  3. Black and White
  4. Spots
  5. Paper
Again, thank you to Tayet 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!
