Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Yay!  It's Sunday!  And do you know what that means - well besides another Scavenger Hunt Sunday?!  New Dexter and Walking Dead episodes.  WOOT WOOT!  

We had a nice and quiet week.  We opted out of going out on Thanksgiving Eve and were very much thankful we didn't.  No hangovers this year on Thanksgiving.  That is always nice.  Instead of being miserable we got up at a decent hour, ate breakfast with the Macy's Day Parade on in the background, went for a run then hung out at husband's parents' house until dinner at his Nonna and Pop Pop's at 6.  Which was followed by - as always - very interesting post dinner conversations.  But that's for a whole new post. 

Anywayyyyyyyyy (said in Ellen's voice), on to this week's prompts: Home or Thankful, In the Kitchen, Couple, Bubbles, and Trees.  

1) Bubbles.  
This is one of the little girls I nanny for, Elizabeth.  Family and close friends call her Bits but I like to call her Bubbles as she is constantly blowing bubbles.  Isn't she adorable?! 

 2) Couple. 
Here is Bubbles' older sister Annabel with her cousin on Wednesday.  Pittsburgh had great weather this week so I made sure to get the kiddos out for some fresh air until it really starts to get cold.  Just a couple of kids hanging out. 

3) In the Kitchen. 
Most mornings begin with a cup of tea.  This morning was no different.  

 4) Thankful or Home. 
After being in the 50s and even getting to the 60s on Thursday, Pittsburgh had it's first snow yesterday.  I love the first snow.  As much as I hate the cold I am thankful snow helps me to appreciate the cold - it can be so beautiful.  

5) Trees. 
Husband and I went on a small walk Monday morning through North Park.  I love the what is left of Fall foliage in the above photo with the house in the background and the reflection of the trees and boathouse in the bottom photo.  I couldn't choose just one to share.  Can you believe these were taken with my iPhone 4 using Instagram?  

Hope everyone had a great week and an even better Thanksgiving full of love and delicious food!  Cheers to a new week and the beginning of one my favorite times of the year!  


  1. Love the Instagram shots! Those iPhones can take some pretty amazing pictures.

    1. Thank you, Danelle! Isn't it amazing? Technology has come so far!

  2. Looks like a happy T-day and no hangovers...yay. Please keep your snow, I'm not a fan. Your kitchen and couple shots are very clever.

    1. I'll try my best, Susan! Mother Nature can be so cruel sometimes though. And thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment! Much appreciated:)

  3. Love love the last two... we are looking at ipods/iphones/ipad mini etc... so now not only do I love those last two... but your pics make me want to sing! ;) he he he

    1. Thank you! If you love photography as much as I do, the iPhone is so great. So many different photography apps it's hard to choose my favorite (maybe that can be a post?)! I seriously use it as my go-to hand held point and shoot.


I love hearing from y'all. Comments are my favorite!
