our week by iPhone - week 52

and here we are, week fifty-two.  i officially have an entire year's worth of weekdays recorded through iPhone pics & posted on the ol' blog.  so that's cool.  i have loved hosting this link-up meme & don't even have to think twice about whether i'll do it another year... ummm, YES.  i love looking back at what we were doing six, ten, or twelve months back & seeing how parker has changed & reliving those every day moments.  so much fun.

if you haven't been linking up, you should do it!  start now & just start by one picture a day.  or two. or be crazy like me & do six.  post 'em, link up, & get excited about having an awesome visual journal of your year that will put you right back in those moments when you look back.  it's crazy.  i look back at our first week in iPhone pics & i can't believe how it just seems like yesterday.  time flies muh friends.

anywho, here's week fifty-two.

monday.  our old friends ryan & christie were in town from spokane all day so sam took the day off & we had family day.  it started with parker & five month old duncan bonding over some sesame street in the lazy boy & then ended up at the mall for some shopping & eyebrow threading.  yes, christie talked me into the eyebrow-hair-plucking madness & i think i kinda liked it.

that night parker & duncan bonded some more.  parker was asking duncan to touch his face & then giggling like a little monkey when he did.  cutest thing ever.  i'd be lying if i said it didn't make me excited for him to be a big brother some day.

tuesday.  parker & i kinda slept in & missed stroller strides, so we took advantage of the sunny crisp fall day & went for a run.  it was the first time i had gone running in a couple months & it felt GREAT.  parker liked it too.  almost as much as he liked lining up all his cars on the coffee table when we got back inside.  goofball.

wednesday.  have i ever mentioned how parker & i count down the minutes until sam gets home?  seriously.  once he walks in that door he & parker are inseparable.  they're pretty much bffs.

thursday.  i worked in the office & got to sit through some totally awesome training that i had absolutely no problem staying awake for!  {that was for my co-workers who read the blog... *yawn*}.

then i drove home in the pitch black... yes, at 4:30.  daylight savings schmaylight savings.  but it was all made ok when i got to peak into the bathroom at two of my favorite little heineys leaning over the bath tub.

friday.  we started our day off with some stroller strides & a mustache mo-vember playdate before heading to p-ray's eighteen month check up.  we celebrated 11:11 am on 11/11/11 by hanging out in the exam room & taking pictures to commemorate the moment.  what'd you do?

then we went home where parker emptied out my cupboard on the kitchen floor in a very tidy line.  i think he was trying to tell me how approximately a quarter of those cans were expired & needed to be thrown out.  thanks p-ray.  mental note taken.

we partied it up friday night with some college basketball watching, p-ray's first haircut & dinner at the costco food court.  because we're classy like that.

that was our week!  how was yours?  i wanna see, so link up!

  1. I've totally been afraid of getting my eye brows threaded bc it seriously looks like it hurts. But maybe not? I'll have to give it a try. I went back and looked at your first week in iPhone pictures, wow how Parker has changed. I always love looking back on old pictures as well. It's fun to relive those moments. So thanks for a year of an awesome link up so that I can go back and revisit pictures of my son :)

  2. How did his appointment go? Looks like you had a fun and busy week!

  3. I can't believe that it gets dark at 4:30 there! I have a hard time accepting that its dark at 6 in Michigan in the winter...I guess I can stop whining about that now! :)

  4. Wow that's awesome that you have 52 weeks of iPhone photos. I hope I make it to 52 weeks :)

    Looks like you had a fun week. I've never had my eyebrows threaded, I'll have to try it :)

    Have a great weekend!

  5. loved looking at your first week! so awesome that you have had a years worth!! my weekly updates are my mother in laws fav blog posts (she lives far away). :D

  6. I'm sure Sam loves that you put a picture of his butt on the blog. But then again, he's probably used to it by now. ;) haha

    Also, is there a difference between tweezing and threading eyebrows? just curious

  7. Great pics! So awesome that you have a years worth of cell pics. Sadly my cell camera broke over a month ago, and I lost all my cell pics at the same time. So so sad.

  8. uummm..costco food court is pretty much or favorite restaurant. and just now i decided it was cool enough to be called a restaurant. now who's classy?

  9. Parker REALLY likes lining things up, doesn't he? It's adorable. Congrats on a whole year! I love the link up.

  10. I've been thinking of doing this whole deal, but I'm a stay at home mom and I fear I'll bore everyone LOL, is there a certain day of the week you need to post?

    And holy crap, it gets dark at 4:30?! It starts getting dark here at 5:30 and I thought THAT was incredibly early!

  12. Congrats on a full year of iPhone pics! I love this feature and really want to join in the future (for now, I'm lame and have a really old phone that takes pictures but holds them hostage there). And now I also want to try eyebrow threading! My sister swears by it, so I think I have to give it a go. :)

  13. I was just thinking recently that Hannah would be a really good big sister. Let's start a pregnancy pact so Parker and Hannah can be bigs together.

  14. I'm also afraid to get my eyebrows threaded, hell I don't even know if anyone in this town does it haha!!!

    Great pics! Congrats on a year of iPhone pics, that's pretty fantastic :)

  15. By college basketball watching, I hope you mean the North Carolina vs Michigan State game on the navy ship - Go Tar Heels!! Love the hiney shot - that is priceless! Eyebrow threading sounds kind of scary. Looks like Parker may be practicing to be an engineer like his dad!

  16. Love your iphone pictures. Don't you just love how technology works for memories :) I post my pictures on an online baby album at so my family can always see too :)

  17. You got really nice shots this week! Parker is getting more and more handsome. I love getting my brows threaded. And it gets dark really early there, wow!

  18. Cute pics! I love this link up and will hopefully join next week!

  19. Congrats on a year! Parker gets cuter & cuter each week :)

  20. Congrats on 52!! And I'm dying over the canned goods train...that kid is too much!
