Finally! Here is my “Week in the Life” album. This was truly one of the most time consuming, yet rewarding, projects I have ever worked on. I can’t wait took look back at it five years from now, mainly just to laugh and think how crazy we are to be so busy all the time! So much life passes by while we’re in the car, in the drive thru, at this or that game… It has made me realize how much I am enjoying this summer. I have been home in the evenings most nights and have already been on a road trip, the beach and two pool days! Not bad, for me It helps that the weather has been fabulous, too.
I am not as organized as everyone else I know doing this project… they were blogging their “days”, every day! Kudos to them. I will just settle for pictures of the book.
My original color scheme was not red… it was Aqua Blue, Soft Yellow and Gray. Once I couldn’t get my WRMK 8.5×11 album in any other color but red though, it had to change. I downloaded Ali’s journaling templates and off to work I went!
I apologize for the quality of the photos… I’m still saving to upgrade from my digital point and shoot!

Where we’re at now…
Pretty self-explanatory that this would be Thursday:
I really encourage you to try this project! Honestly, the hardest part was remembering to take pictures of everything. All day, everyday, for 7 days. But the end result is so worth it. What a great gift to leave your ancestors 50 or even 100 years from now… while they are wondering what you were like – you can give them a firsthand account into what an entire week was like in your life.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have that for our ancestors from 100 years ago? I think so!
Thanks for looking everyone, hope you enjoy!
A quick blog update!
The fam and I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Wisconsin Dells, ending with a stop in Valleyfair in Minneapolis! What a BLAST that place is. It’s like Vegas, for kids! Endless Waterparks and Theme Parks…
I have waaaaaaay too many pics to post them all here – but most of you have me on Facebook, so you can check out my album here. Here’s a couple of my fave photos for anyone that can’t see the album – and if you can’t see the album, add me on Facebook!
My plan is to make a road trip album and I am soooooo inspired by this one that my good friend Kim directed me to:
Check that out! I looooove posting things on my blog that have inspired to me and when Kim showed me that, I was SOLD. I kept most receipts for everything that we bought, ate and did – and even kept a gas log! Can’t wait to make something of my own
I realized a while ago that after I talked about the “Week in the Life” album, I never did post pics of my completed project. That will be one of my next blog projects!
Also, for this particular road trip, I made Road Trip Survival Kits for the girls… I will post pics very soon as I am going to try and submit them to Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon, since I used their paper lines for the Activity Mini’s. Wish me luck!
How’s your summer going, so far?
