Photo An Hour // Early Sunday & Biking

This is my first Photo An Hour post. In the past I had tried to do it and found my photos too boring. I decided to take these photos over the weekend when I knew we would actually be out and about. I love when blogger's do these posts. I enjoy peeking into their daily lives. I actually did this post because EM from Emma Deer hinted at me doing one. Thanks EM for the motivation! Here is how I spent Sunday March 3, 2013...

6AM - Yes, I get up early even on the weekends. 6AM is actually "sleeping in" for me. I love Sponge Bob!
7AM - I love catching up on my blog reading using the BlogLovin' ap on my phone!
8AM - Eating some Shredded Wheats with fresh blue berries and vanilla soy milk! YUM!

9AM - We decided to drive to Ft. Collins, Colorado to ride our bikes. Warmer weather and less wind there.
10AM - Stitch (my iPhone) in my back pocket in my cycling jersey. Ready to hop on the bike!
11AM - Cycling on the trail. It's so hard to take photos with your phone while you are peddling!

12PM - We treated ourselves to Starbucks. It had been a few months since we had it.
1PM - Dragged Cody to the Thrift Store. What a good husband he is!
2PM - Stopped at our favorite bike shop. Cody got a new helmet and drooled over all the bikes that we can't afford.

3PM - After no luck at the thrift store, we headed to Plato's Closet. A second hand store with a great selection.
4PM - Back in Wyoming.
5PM - Dinner time. Vegan Sloppy Joes. (Recipe to come some time in the future.)

6PM - Tea time.
7PM - Sunday is Walking Dead night! YES!!!! Only a few more episodes. :(
8PM - So tired. Time for bed.

I loved doing this. I guess once I had the motivation to do it I didn't find it as hard to pull off. I love holding on to memories from ordinary days. I hope to do more of these posts. Defiantly when I am on my trip visiting family and friends in Ohio. Not everyday is as fun or exciting as this one was. If I did a typically work day I am pretty sure I would get in trouble for having my phone out taking photos. HA! Also, some days I blog for 3 - 4 hours. This was really fun and now I know why so many bloggers do it. Not an original post, but oh well. I am pretty excited about doing them!

Have you ever attempted a photo an hour post?

    1. My life isn't that exciting! Just pick a day when you are out and about! It makes it fun! I'm so in love with my Stitch phone case! :) I used to have the Hello Kitty teapot clock.

  3. I loooove and this idea -- I would have never thought of doing this. I'm thinking about it now though. And hey, that's my blog you shared! You are just the best!!

    Oh and hello absolutely adorable Care Bears mug. I also love your iPhone case. This was really neat to see a day in the life of you. Showing an ordinary day just shows how human the person behind the blog is and that that person has a life, loves, needs, enjoyments. I think readers need that reminder here and there. I think I might really try this. I haven't ever shared a group of photos like this or like your photo a day you do. I think it's because I fear people don't care and I should just stop that silliness, because I care and that's all that should matter since I'd be doing it on my blog. It's also because I come across so many Instagram collage posts and I just skip them because I don't like photo collages since they are so much smaller. Yours are one after the other and big and beautiful. Ya, I think I might give this a go because it was very enjoyable to read. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I love sharing your blog! It is a favorite of mine. :)

      I always feared my photos would be too boring to share, but really it's no different then my photo a day! I just tried to take neat shots or catch a special moment for me to remember! I can't wait to do it again actually. Also, if you want to post it on your blog you should. People can look at it or move on! I love taking photos, so they go on my blog! :)

      I don't like tiny pictures either! I like to show them off! I have a hard time making my photo a day pictures smaller. But that would be way too many big photos on one post I think.

    2. Awww, thank you so much! Yours is a favorite of mine too. Actually I normally bring up yours and few others and read them right away and save the rest for later. :)

      I agree- I looooove taking photos. Some have said I take too many photos. My dad always had a camera on him and so that wore off on me. I think I will try it out. If I tried it out now it really would be boring because for hours straight I've been working on my shop.

      I think you do a wonderful job with presenting your photo a day posts.

  5. I think it's awesome! I love seeing a glimpse into your life. This is almost identical to how I would spend a Saturday. I'm jealous you guys are already out biking. I'm a wimp and I still think it's too cold for me. Plus I need to take my bike in for a tune up. I read blogs on my phone in the morning too but I use google reader. I should try blog lovin. I only wish there was an easier way to comment when I'm using my phone. It's just so tedious that I usually go back and comment on blogs I read later in the day.

    1. Commenting on the phone is hard, you are totally right! The bike ride was cold and we actually had to stop and turn around. Our ears were burning!!!! Thanks for peeking into my life! I can't wait to do more posts like this. Oh and to bike in the cold is super hard without cold weather gear, which costs an arm and a leg!!! Which last time I checked I don't have an arm or leg to spare! Lol

  11. Would love to one day meet up with you and Cody in Ft. Collins, CO to hang out and what not. It's only 4 hours away from us in Grand Junction, CO!

  12. Wow, that would be a far drive for you guys. I am sure we could go further so you wouldn't have to go as far. We haven't even been to Colorado Springs yet!!! We'll have to see what our Colorado plans are this year and try to do something then. :)

    1. I'd love to meet up with you both in Colorado Springs, especially since its only an hour away and I've NEVER been. How far is Colorado Springs from you two at the moment? If its not a bad idea for us both (mileage anyway), we should try to plan to ride bikes there later on in the year (Fall 2013?).
