I found out about “first days’ a while back from Nicole over at journey to josie… Its a simple challenge and one i know i would love as soon as i read/heard about it! All you have to do is on the first day of each month you PHOTO document your day from start to finish.. I LOVE this idea for many reasons..
- makes you see the importance in the little things
- helps you remember what your ‘everyday’ was like
- simple easy scrapbook -if you so choose!
- a peak for others to see a normal-ish day
- guilt free (im taking pictures each month:)
and so many more!!
SOO here is the first time ive done it, Here goes our March First day
wake up call…
walked over to publix for chicken (didnt want to strap all the kids for a 1/2 sec ride.. SO cookies were given as bribery:)
naptime for the little ones, mini school with the oldest.. (LOVE those little hands!)
mommy has quiet time to
just waking up from naptime.. love her!
snack times 5.. @3:15
Bye ‘friends’ see you next week!
fun with the camera after the ‘friends’ leave and before dinner
freezing (37 degrees, so a fire made by daddy!)
SO in general that was our first day in March.. my first time doing this and now looking at it i MISSED a lot of fun things (like running @5:45am, yummy bbq sandwiches, couch time with my superman and so much more!) So i plan to be more -camera happy- next month!
If you did a ‘first day’ add a comment with your link:)
Cant wait until next months first:)
I am a faithful follow (for 5 years now) of Moneysavingmom.com .. over the years she has written things and taught me so much about saving money, parenting, loving others, being debt free, homeschooling, and goal setting (really there is more but I’ll stop with those:). And this month, March, she is hosting a challenge and i want to join.. it is super simple.. pick a ‘early’ time to rise each morning and then .. do it:)
Although I have been getting up at 5:30 (off and on) since the beginning of the year I only do it the days my running buddy and i go running.. so if either of us cant run.. i sleep in.. SOO i am challenging myself to rise 5 days a week at 5:30 and -key- GET out of bed! normally i run but if that doesn’t happen.. to be productive in some way..
Are you in??? Link up if yes!
would love to hear why you picked an early time and what you will be doing!
