Project Life Tuesday

by jessicaturner on May 24, 2011

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday 2011! If you are new to The Mom Creative, welcome. I hope you will stay awhile. I’m Jessica: wife to Matthew, mom to Elias, a delicious two-year-old, with another on the way, a marketing professional, savvy deal finder, photo lover and memory keeper trying to juggle it all.

I started Project Life Tuesday in 2010 because:

  • I needed to keep myself accountable and on top of my photos each week.
  • My family loved being able to count on a weekly post with pics of my sweet Elias.
  • I thought others might want to keep themselves accountable too.

It was a huge blessing and so I am excited to do it all over again!

Each Tuesday, I post my pictures/journaling from the previous week, as well as host a linky for readers to link up their pictures. Please be sure to include the Project Life Tuesday button in your post.


Sunday, May 8: We plan on transitioning Elias’s crib to a toddler bed this week. This was one of his last naps in a crib. He has to have many stuffed animals with him, including his favorite “monsters” and Llama Llama (all from Kohls – our favorite place for stuffed chinchillas!)

Monday, May 9: Toys, toys, everywhere. This is often what our living room looks like. Though it can get frustrating to continually be picking up toys, it is a season I never want to forget.

Tuesday, May 10 and Wednesday, May 11: No photos – I need to take some “make-ups”!

Thursday, May 12: Our Twitter friend Jenni was in town this week. It was so awesome to hang out in person!

Friday, May 13: The cicadas are here! They are SO gross. This is one of the bushes outside our condo. Elias points them out every day.

Saturday, May 14: Elias got a hair cut today for summer. He didn’t fuss one bit!

Sunday, May 15: My friends Alyson, Angie, Kristen and Mandy threw me a lovely baby girl shower today. It was wonderful to celebrate Adeline with friends.

Monday, May 16: I’m a little behind on laundry, but Elias didn’t seem to mind mixing Halloween pants with a Buzz lightyear shirt was fine with him. He added mommy’s winter wool hat to complete the look.

Tuesday, May 17: When Buzz doesn’t want to fly, of course riding a cow is a perfectly acceptable mode of transportation.

Wednesday, May 18: Today before work I went to Muffins with Mommy at Elias’s school. He was so happy to have me there.

Thursday, May 19: 34 weeks!

Friday, May 20: A group of Mandy’s girlfriends are throwing her a baby shower – right before my due date. So I took the job of doing the invitations. They turned out so cute!

Saturday, May 21: Maternity shoot – previews here

Your turn!

You look stunning, Jess! Hope you feel as great as you look! It was great to catch up with your sis this weekend and catch up on how you are feeling and doing. xo

I am so behind on my PL.


These beautiful shots have cheered me right up, however!

Great photos this week. I love your baby bump.

Kohls is my favorite place for stuffed animals too! I always buy them for my classroom and put them with the book! Those cicadas are just gross! I hate those things! So far we haven’t seen them!

I clicked over and looked at your maternity photo previews – ADORABLE!! Elias is so, so cute… I can’t wait to see pictures of Adeline! :) I think it’s so sweet that you incorporated the Lisa Leonard name banner thing into your photos.
