~Photo-a-day~ Feb.5-11

I’ve been back for four days now and have been running ever since…wow how much catching up you have to do almost makes a vacation not worth it…=) I went on a four day cruise, with Christina, to the Bahamas. It was so lovely! And I got some much needed rest. I have a ton of pictures to share=) So check back for those soon!

So that’s my excuse for not getting the two past due “photo-a-day” post up. I’ve been trying but I haven’t had time. But here’s the first one…enjoy!

Also a little side note this blog post is my one hundredth one since I began in December of two thousand and twelve. It’s been so much fun it’s hard to believe it’s been a little over one year since I then… A huge thank you to all of you that follow along, read and comment. Your comments are what makes this so much fun for me to do=)

Day 36


Day 37

~a challenge~

Taking action pictures have always been one of my weaknesses. So it was “a challenge” =) to capture these pictures of Samuel playing basketball at his senior night. Hard to believe my little brother is turning 19 this Saturday and will be soon graduating. IMG_5142-002

Day 38


Yeah it would be cooking…this little slow cooker was given to me by Christina the other day. It’s only like 1.5 quarts…so much fun! I can’t wait to make some thing in it=)IMG_5182-001

Day 39

~in my hand~IMG_5217-001

Day 40


Totally out of my comfort zone…getting ready to board my first airplane. This is of our boarding passes while we were waiting in the airport for our flight. We flew from Indianapolis to Newark and from Newark to Miami Florida, here we boarded our cruise ship. I didn’t know what to expect through customs, etc. And like always I was the one randomly picked for an extra security check (pat down). But flying was AWESOME! IMG_5262

Day 41


We spent the night in this hotel in Miami Florida. I think this describes UP perfectly=)IMG_5373-001

Day 42


This is a Tender and it took us from the anchored ship to the the island we visited the first day. Great Stirrup Cay=)IMG_5636-001

Please let my know your thoughts and remember constructive criticism is also welcome=)



  1. Nice pictures Olivia! I think you look like your sister Grace in your self portrait! Can't wait to see the pictures from your trip!

    1. Really? I hear that alot...=)

    2. Linda (my other half) was always picked as well. She and our friend John, who looked like a drug dealer from the movies (beard, Panama hat, etc.) were always picked. Seems they pick the most innocent and the most guilty looking. We would always tell him, "John if you didn't dress like that they wouldn't harrass you!" He'd say, "What about Linda?"

  2. I like them all Olivia. The self portrait is my favorite and the ship is great also.

  3. Welcome back! It sounds like you really enjoyed your vacation. I am glad you got to do a post today. We always joke that after a vacation, we're so busy trying to catch up that we need another vacation.
    I have always enjoyed checking for a new post each day. I am surprised that you have already done a hundred. Time goes so fast.
    I think my favorite picture for this week is...I can't pick just one their are so many that I like... so I guess the top three for me is days 36, 41, and 42.
    Looking forward to more pictures!!! Hannah

    1. Thanks so much Hannah! I'm beginning to see the end of my work pile and also my "to do" list at home is getting smaller=) Starting to be able to breathe again.

  4. I'm so glad you girls are home!!!!!! I missed you both so much :) I like your self portrait picture... doesn't look like you took it yourself :) Pretty impressive. Loved the pictures from your trip and can't wait to see more.
    Love you :)
