10 on 10 :: May 2010

10 on 10 : Take a photo once an hour for ten consecutive hours on the tenth of each month. Document a snapshot of your life and find beauty among the ordinary things of your day.

I can't believe it is already May 10 ! That means it is birthday month for Kevin and I!
It was fun for me to look back at my 10 on 10 from April because that is the day we moved out of our house & started living with my parents. So, we have officially been living here for exactly 1 month. And, 1 month ago, we didn't know where our next home would be! One month later, we have closed on that house & we are hopefully moving in this weekend (we are getting some work done on the house before we move in). And, in 1 month school will be out..I can't WAIT!

So, without further ado, here is my 10 on 10 for May 2010:

Today, I gave my students their placement test for next year's math class.
I bet you wish you were able to take the Algebra Readiness Test!
.After school, I had to run by our new house because it was pouring rain today (what is up with all this rain we are having!?) Kevin and I left the upstairs windows open over the weekend to air out the house. Well, I was too late. There was TONS of rain & water that already got in the house. Here are the shutters with water all over them. And, there was a nice puddle on the floor also...Bummer!
Sneak peak of the kitchen at our new house. I can't wait to use this Viking Range! *squeal*
This invitation was in our mailbox. Our new court has block parties once a month & the one for May is this Saturday. It is a Quince de Mayo (15th of May) Party. I think we are going to fit right in to our new neighborhood!
Kate (still in her pj's) during lunch. She demanded Honey Nut Cheerios for lunch. I gave in.
My mom's Mother's Day flowers:

I am obsessing/trying to figure out the right shade of pink for Claire's room.
I don't want it to be too bright or have too much of a purple tone.
I have it narrowed down to a few choices, but feel free to let me know if you have a good pink paint color!
Dinner is served...Taco Soup, Cornbread & whipped honey butter.
A perfect meal for this rainy day in May!
Let me know if you did 10 on 10 this month, I would love to check out your set of pictures!


  1. The picture of Kate sleeping is precious, and Claire looks like she is having a ball! Your new neighbors DO sound like a lot of fun, which is great since I can tell how much you liked your previous neighbors. And a Viking range?! I'm so jealous!

  2. love the pictures again...i should have done this...next month i am doing it! i am putting it in my planner right now. i just love this idea.

    a good pink color...check out this web site: http://makingitlovely.com/2009/07/20/picking-perfect-pink-paint/.

    It has a lot of different pinks and a little information about each of them. I hope that helps a little bit.

    And I want to move to your neighborhood...a block party every month...sounds like fun!

    I can't wait to see your house....looks wonderful!

  3. great pictures this month! and yay for moving soon, happy 10 on 10! oh yeah...kinda jealous of that range! :)

  4. I did a 10 on 10! (But, I didn't do them consecutively!)

    And I love Taco Soup - it was a cold, rainy night here yesterday too - that would have been good!

  5. I wish our street was like your new one. That sounds like so much fun! And I did the 10 on 10 this month, so check out my blog.

  6. The picture of Claire is the cutest! I am so excited for you about your neighborhood. That is AWESOME. :)

    P.S. SO nice to get to hang out with you on Saturday! We definitely need to do that again soon. Sewing night at your place when you get settled for sure. :)

  7. Behr's Foxy Pink.
    I adore it.
    But it might be too crazy for you.
    My sis in law had it lightened 25% and it is still beautiful.

  8. Such a great set....you always get me with the food shots....it looks SO good.

  9. love these cute pics!
    everytime I see your 10 on 10 I say, "I'm going to do that!" and still have yet to do so!
    I love this idea :)

  10. So cute. As for paint, I will try to find my color. We searched far and wide and used a lot of samples. The best bet, as I'm sure you have heard, is to choose the lightest one on the swatch. It always looks white on the swatch, but up on the walls it looks like a nice light pink. Sherman Williams sells 1/2 gallon samples for $5. I bought some of those and still use them now and then for projects. :)

  11. Wonderful photography! your blog is a treat! You use a canon?? I'm ReAlLy wanting to get a nice camera... any suggestions?

  12. What a great idea! LOVE your posts always....you are an amazingly talented woman!

  13. Did it Mel, yours are great, I love this, love love love!!! Such a great way to document your life!!! Congrat's on the new place : D

  14. Ha! 10 on 10 for me = iphone pics this month! :-)

    Can't wait to see your new house pics!!

  15. Nice shots!

    I played along...and now I'm snooping to see what everyone else did.

  16. I'm laying in bed right now and ALL I WANT is some of that cornbread.

  17. Dang that chili looks good! Your photos are always amazing.

  18. We used benjamin moore's "wispy pink" for our daughter's room! Love it...it's just enough pink, not too much!

  19. I am beyond jealous of your Viking and your new neighborhood! What a blessing! You guys deserve it!!

  20. yum i love corn bread. Got me hungry for it! haha Love your pretty flowers
