Photo A Day Challenge: April

Have you all been wondering what the excessive amount of hash tagging (#) has been about on my uploaded Facebook photos?

Lingo Help: Originally created by Twitter, hashtags are used for words or phrases in order to label a keyword or topic in a Tweet.  Simply label a keyword in your message with # before the word or phrase – without spaces – and it instantly connects you to conversations revolving around the topic.

Example: Next week’s finale looks good! I’m guessing Team Big Brother are the two trying to bypass the detour. #AmazingRace

Today ended my 30 photo-a-day challenge on Instagram.

For those of you who are still wondering what the heck I’m talking about, is a photography sharing app for the iPhone and Android smart phones.

I’ve seen photos with the hashtag #photoadayfeb and #photoadaymarch pop up on my feed, so I did some research on what the challenge is all about.  Towards the end of March, Jill tweeted “Who’s in?” with the following photo:

photoadayapril Pictures, Images and Photos

I was!

Throughout the last 30 days, I have enjoyed completing a daily photo challenge and following others who do the same.  It’s easy to see what other people come up with by searching for #photoadayapril on either Istagram or Twitter.

Whether you realized it or not, I shared all of my photos with you by feeding them directly to my Twitter and Facebook pages.

Some words allowed me to get artistic.

I’m probably going to take the month of May off, and enjoy doing the challenge every other month or so.  I’ll keep you updated on when I’m participating and hope to get some of you hooked as well.

Until then, enjoy the Instagram feed on my right side bar and search for me under hwglamour.

Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Dry ingredients

On the way to the grocery store last weekend, Scott got an out-of-the-blue urge to make some kind of pumpkin oatmeal raisin treat. I’m usually the one with the pumpkin sweet tooth around here.  Has anyone noticed the only baking and desserts featured on the blog so far are Pumpkin Spice Muffins, Pumpkin Roll and…

No Plans, Fun Birthday

Birthday at Imperial

We’ve been celebrating my birthday since Tuesday night, starting it off with Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Show. Neither Scott or I planned out much more and I spent my birthday morning at the barre studio.  I got home around 2pm and we ended up having a great day together as well as a fun night out…

Mystery Picture

Yesterday was my 27th birthday and although it wasn’t a milestone or golden birthday, (like my 25th) I had a fabulous go-with-the-flow day and a fun night.  I woke up to so many thoughtful birthday messages and texts, so THANK YOU to everyone who was kind enough to leave one. Since celebrating really started earlier…

Weekend Discoveries

Me and Roadie at Park

This weekend was all about discoveries. First, it started off with waking up to this disgusting zombie hand in the bed. Happy Saturday! Scott and I rented Paranormal Activity 3 On Demand Friday night. It was scary, just like the first two and left me thinking there will be a part four coming soon. Every…
