Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Happy Monday, peeps!

I finally got my act together to participate in Scavenger Hunt Sunday (ok, so it’s Monday, but at least I did it!).

1. Simple

I bought this Quick & Easy Meals by American Heart Association cookbook back in April of last year when P and I spent out last maternity week together before she started daycare.  It is pretty much my go-to cookbook now that I’m super obsessed with feeding our family healthy meals when I have no more than 20-30 minutes to put them together.  Almost weekly I pick out 1-3 meals form the book to try (and usually readjust a bit) and then I prep as many things on the weekends as I can so that I can fit in some runs and playtime on week nights.  I chose this for my simple photo because that’s exactly what it makes meal times – simple!

2.  Grain

Speaking of healthy alternatives, I’ve started to cook more and more with brown rice rather than its bleached cousin.  I’ve messed up about 5 meals so far, but I think I finally have the timing down!

3.  Transportation

Peanut’s godparents got P this adorable puzzle toy from Melissa & Doug!  How freakin’ cool is it?  Peanut’s been dragging it behind her most of the day Sunday.  It’s another add-on to our quickly growing Melissa & Doug collection.  I can’t get over how amazing their toys are!

4.  Stitch

I got this placemat for some photos and I absolutely love the bright switching on it.

5.  Bubble

Peanut is obsessed with bubbles so much so that we’re not even allowed to mention the name in our household unless we want to faint from blowing them for the rest of the afternoon.  Taking photos of bubbles blowing in the wind outside?  Pretty much impossible.




  1. I love your ‘simple’ photo. What a great find. Seems like a great recipe book too!

  2. Great interpretation of transportation – really like that.

  3. This seems like a fun link up. I might have to try it!!!

  4. I like your interpretations of this week’s words. The toy transportation looks so cute.

  5. Your transportation is my FAVORITE! So cute. What a clever idea. I also love the light that you captured with your bubble. Gorgeous.

  6. Awesome, awesome photography, Kat! It makes me smile that she’s so obsessed with bubbles. I’ve been loving all of the Instagram pictures of her lately! :)

  7. I am so impressed at your photography. I feel like it keeps getting better and better. Did you get a new lens?

  8. Anddd now that I read that last comment it sounds all wrong. I don’t mean it got better because of a lens I just know we have the same basic 50mm and I didn’t know if you had upgraded yet :)

    • haha I totally get what you’re saying – most of my pictures, including these ones, are taken with the 50mm that I sent you a link to!

  9. I love that placemat! So springy!

  10. These are great! I’m interested in that cookbook. Really want healthy and quick here too. Your transportation shot is cute! It’s clean, simple, and I like that!

  11. Awesome macro shots.
