scavenger hunt sunday {i had so much fun participating last week, i'm doing it again!}

{in fact, i'll probably just make this a regular thing.}

this time,
we're looking for routinemusictechnologyour style and mismatch.

my style

i thought i'd start off with my style {if you can call it that}.
i always considered myself fashion-conscious before baby... even during pregnancy {which was so much fun to get creative with!}.
but i have to say, post-baby, it's an entirely different story.
i rarely try.
i don't think it will always be that way.
but as long as i'm nursing and he's teething/drooling and needing to be fed by someone else,
i'm not going to put too much effort into what i wear...
it's just gonna get messed up anyway.
so one can usually find me with my hair pulled back,
wearing a head band or scarf,
 and sporting relaxed, comfortable clothes that are often mismatched.
which is why...

mismatch too


i prefer the first photo, but i put this one in to show how unmatched my ensemble is.
i wanted to do something else with the mismatch prompt, though,
as something else came immediately to mind to shoot for it.
but i'll get to that one in a bit.


next up... routine.

routine

it's interesting, to me, that i was never disciplined about taking vitamins myself on a daily basis.
it was always sporadic... whenever i happened to think of it... never routine.
but as soon as i became responsible for another person {isaac},
i became very disciplined in sticking to a daily routine
of giving him his vitamins...
every morning, with breakfast.
he loves them!
if he could, i think he would just drink the entire bottle down.
i only hope that, despite the fact that i am still not consistent with my own vitamin-taking,
he will pick up on the habit of me giving them to him every day
and continue to take them after he is out from under my "reign". {*wink*}


speaking of isaac...

music

i know i've said it before, but i can never say it enough... i adore watching these two together. i always think my son is so sweet and forever cute in my eyes. but as soon as he is in the arms or on the lap of his dad, he becomes the most precious sight to behold... both of them really. it's not one or the other. it's the love you can see between them. i melt. mr. b. is such a good dad... so giving, so interested, so fun and so patient. it was actually his idea to get the guitar for isaac for christmas. and i'm so glad he thought of it. i'd be most glad if isaac followed in his father's musical footsteps. so far, i think he has.


now back to mismatch.

mismatched

like i said,
i thought of this as soon as i read the prompts for this week.
i've never owned an entire set of matching dishes of any kind.
but for some reason, that never appealed to me.
i think it's because i would never be able to commit to just one style.
plus, i love vintage things... dishes are no exception.
so when i find antique glassware that i love,
rarely does the entire set remain in tact.
usually, it's three here, one there...
or as is the case with the second glass from the left,
it's one or two passed down to us by family.
if i ever had a dinner party
or hosted a brunch,
this is what the table would look like... mismatched.
and i have to say, i don't think i'd do it any other way, even if i could.


okay.
one more.

technology

i wish it was mine.
but it's not.
it belongs to the company that i am doing this temp project for.


it's sad, but this laptop is twice as fast as my archaic desktop mac that i am blogging on at the moment.
i bought my mac used... and that always has a down side... namely that so much is outdated.
i'm hoping to upgrade in the near future.
if i get more temp jobs, i'll be able to!
fingers crossed.


for now, i will enjoy this one... even if it is only for work.
this one can follow me around... the couch, the dining room table, the bed {in my pajamas!}, the office.
i love it!
i'm like a kid in a candy store... at christmas!

apple candy

and i'm pretty sure i'll cry like a baby when i have to give it back.
{*frown*}


but i will live.
and i will work that much harder to get one of my own after having tasted the sweetness this apple.


that wraps up my scavenger hunt.
did you hunt this week, too?
i hope so.
i'm going to be checking out some s.h.s. posts of others.
it's so much fun to see all the different things others do with five words each week.


hope your weekend was grand.
happy week ahead!

all of these shots are gorgeous! And I desperately want to by a Macbook. SO BADLY!

Verna said...

My favorite is your "music" Brought a smile to my face. Good job!

Bridget said...

Great set Georgia. I love your selfies and your head scarf! But my favourite is your Music shot! I know what you mean about it melting your heart to see your boys together. Watching my hubby with my boys make me love him so much more. I'm an apple girl when it comes to the gadgets - but have yet to try Mac, maybe that's a good thing - I can't miss it if I don't know what I'm missing, right?

jen@ living a full life said...

I love them all! But your choice for music, my heart is melting... how cute!

Andee said...

Great set. I am right there with you on the style after kids.

Allison E said...

Great pictures! Your music shot is just darling! The mismatch glasses are fun... I love vintage items as well. My kitchen is full of dishes from the 50's :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I really enjoyed your photos. Your Issac is adorable! My Grandson is almost 11 months old and just the most wonderful baby! I am so blessed! Enjoyed meeting you through your blog!
hugs, Linda

Ashley Sisk said...

I feel myself relating to you really quickly about my style. I've had fun being creative with my style while pregnant, but once the baby arrives, I know all of that will change.

Kathy said...

I REALLY like those technology shots with the laptop in bed...I love the depth of field. And the reflection of the mismatched glasses is just lovely. You have a wonderful collection this week.

becomingmyideal said...

All of your pictures are so good! I think the mismatched glasses are my favorite. I love the reflective effect on that picture. Your music shot is precious and I will join you in the Mac envy. :)

I love your commentary as much as I love your images!! This is such a fun place to visit!! I don't have a favorite, they are so great! Of course, you son is just so precious!! And those glasses are wonderful!

stacey said...

I love your self portraits! You are too cute, Georgia. I adore your style.

And I am desperately saving like a mad women for a new Mac, too. Mine is also soooooo slow and so short on memory. Hopefully soon!!

Sherri B. said...

These are wonderful! The photo of your son and husband is precious. And you may not think so, but I think you have great style...blue and green are my two favorite colors, and dominate my wardrobe. :)

Thanks for sharing!

Leanne said...

All such lovely photos! Love the music, so special seeing a baby & dad together.

kimmyskids said...

This post was just fun! Loved them all. I can remember the drinking glass in the center of that shot. I think my dad had those in the early 80s!

Holly said...

Oh my goodness...I love all of your pictures so much! I am beyond excited that you would follow my blog, because I took a stroll through yours and I am crazy impressed by your photos. Really? You want to follow me? I'm so happy. Love love love your pictures. Now I'm following YOU!

georgia b. said...

awww, stace.
hugs!

tiarastantrums said...

such a lovely post to read. I agree - I sort of lost my style when I had a baby and then another and then another - for awhile there I don't think I got dressed up for years! Now that my kiddos are older, it is getting better! Back to lovely roots again! haha

Melanie said...

Can I just please say I LOVE your photography. I don't know quite how to explain it, but each photo is simply beautiful! The shot of the little Isaac & daddy band melts my heart. Fabulous set!

P/S I think you have some great style mama. just sayn.

I'm excited to follow your lovely blog!

Janice said...

Great shots. I really love the way you incorporated the prompts/words into each picture! It made them that much more interesting and unique!

kkkkaty said...

As an aspiring artist I'd say you are already there...these are good examples!

Nicki said...

Your photos are brilliant - not only in terms of being perfect for the scavenger hunt - but in their composition and presentation. Wonderful!

georgia b. said...

wow. thank you, all. you make me smile. i sure love this s.h.s. thing! it's fun to participate, and it's even more fun to meet so many nice and encouraging people!

Amanda M. said...

Cute music shot!

Leah C said...

I'm loving your scavenger hunt shots! That photo of Mr. B and your baby boy...oh so sweet:)

Tracey said...

I love your self portraits! And yes, I remember becoming quite the vitamin and organic crazy mom once I started feeding my babies. You have this chance all over again to do something right with health and you want your babies to have the best!

Rustic Vintage Country said...

Love all your shots, very creative and the music is just so cute! Suzy x

Kay Rhodes said...

Your photos are really great...the music shot is so special. Make sure you take time for you...pamper yourself!!

Andrea said...

You, my friend, are too cute! I love your style. Love the polka dots and the head band/scarf.
I like the mismatched glasses. That's what my parents have, just a whole bunch of different glasses. It's more interesting than an entire set.
And the Mac...I need to start playing the lottery so I can go buy one! And if I do win, I'll buy you one too! ;)
