Photo Challenges

I love doing photo challenges.  I love how each one can vary from super easy to something that really challenges you to push your boundaries and learn something new! In the past, I have always tried to do 365 challenges- one photo every day for a whole year! Usually there is no commitment to the organizer of the challenge; you can just join in and participate when you want to. This is the part that always made me feel okay about giving up after a few weeks or months when life got busy.
Last month, I came across a weekly challenge documenting the lives of military spouses. I was so excited. I signed up and joined A Year as a Military Spouse right away! As soon as I saw the first week's challenge, I was terrified! A self photo! I am NO GOOD at letting someone else take my picture, let alone taking one of myself! I defintely felt like this was out of my comfort zone, but I knew that if I wanted to stay in the group, I had to get it done. Guess what?! I am still in! I conquered one of my worst photo fears, and I am so proud!
Here are the photos for December's challenges!
Week 1~ Self Photo

Week 2~ Family fun

Week 3~ Welcome to the Neighborhood

Week 4- Holiday Cheer

I can't wait to share the rest of the photos with you this year!
I also posted this on my Photography Blog!

Menu Plan Monday!

I almost forgot it was Monday today! The holidays sure have me confused as to what day it is! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Our was great! This was the first year we didn't drive anywhere! We stayed in our pjs all day and just enjoyed family time!
I can't believe it is the last day of 2012 already! I am working on my goals for 2013 for myself, my family, and my business. Do you have any big goals you are trying to achieve next year?
For Christmas, one of the things my husband got me was a new calendar. I use lots of calendars throughout the year for different things, and this one instantly became my menu calendar! I keep it on the fridge so I can see it everyday, so it has to be lightweight so the magnet will hold it. It's perfect ! I even have it all filled out for January already!

Here's what is on the menu this week!

Monday- finger foods for New Years Eve celebration

Tuesday- Black-eyed peas and jalapeno cornbread (Does anyone else have this New Year's Day tradition?

Wednesday- Tuna casserole (my son LOVES this dish and my husband HATES it, so I only make it on duty nights!)

Thursday- Breakfast!!

Friday- Homemade pizza night- I think we might do calzones this week!

Saturday- Chicken, fried apples, and green beans

Sunday- cheeseburger meatloaf and potatoes

What are you cooking this week? Don't forget to visit I'm an Organizing Junkie for more menu plans and lots of menu planning tips!!
I am looking forward to getting lots of use out of my many calndars this year. They are so helpful to me for organizing everything. I also have lots of blog posts lined up for the week, so be sure to check back! You can also visit me on Facebook HERE!

See you soon!
