My 'Friday'

My work schedule is a little weird, so yesterday was technically my 'Friday'. Even better, I got to go home 2 hours early! I was pretty excited. I took this picture as I pulled out of the parking lot at work:

And by the time I got home, the temperature read 87*! It was SUCH a nice day. Later in the evening Tyler and I took the dogs to the dog park (right around sunset). They had fun running around, and we got a cool picture of the sunset and the full moon, but I'll have to upload those later because they're on Tyler's phone. We also tried out running in our Vibram Five Fingers (toe shoes ;) ) - .15 miles! When we got home we went for a real run in our regular shoes, and it was so cool and breezy that we had much more stamina than usual. I can't wait for fall to be here, I'll feel like a superhero when I run!

Today I'm up early so I could have breakfast with Tyler, and in a few minutes I'm going to leave to get a massage. Afterward I'm getting a coffee and then meeting Tyler for lunch. This afternoon I have no plans but to lounge on the couch with the dogs and read. I want to finish Little Women (what I'm currently reading) and start on The Hunger Games. I've heard a lot of good reviews of this series, so I'm going to read it, even though I have no idea what it's really about.


Already behind!

I forgot to take a picture yesterday! I'll make up for it today by showing you a picture of the thing that got me most excited yesterday, mmkay?

Larabars were on sale 10 for $10 when we went shopping at Kroger yesterday! Here is my haul:

And today? I spent the morning making scrambled eggs with cheddar, fresh Hatch green chile, and green onions. Then I made yellow curry to take for lunches this week. After that was done, I cleaned the kitchen. As I washed, I set each item aside to dry. When I was going back through and drying everything, I found this under one of the dishes:

Yep, it was under the pizza pan. I thought it looked cool, apparently I'm easily amused in the mornings!


Day 3

Approximately 7AM



This is my 100th blog post! I'm about to head to bed (yes, at almost 9PM) since we have to be at training in Grapevine at 5:30AM, but I wanted to post my picture for Project365 today. I forgot to take my camera with me, otherwise you could have seen the AWESOME sushi we had for dinner tonight. Instead, you get to see me crashed on the couch with the pups.


So, I got 4 comments on my last post, so here is the adorableness, as promised:

And to answer some of the comments:
J.Nick, I didn't know you read my blog! Howdy, friend!
Dragon - Project365 can be whatever you want it to be - some people post a picture of themselves every day, others post a picture that encapsulates each day. I plan on doing a bit of both!


2 for one!

That's right, you get two posts today!! I just wanted to let everyone (Who is everyone, by the way? Leave a comment if you follow or read this blog!) know that I've got a new look on the blog here. And that I intend to update it more frequently than once a month from now on. I know I've said that many times before, but I'm going to really make a concerted effort this time around. Things are crazy busy, but I want to have a record of what's going on to look back at (hence the Project 365 mentioned in my previous post).

I'd like to hear from my readers - what sorts of things would you like to see on the blog? More pictures? Recipes? Anything? Leave a comment and let me know!!

As an incentive, if I get at least 2 comments, I will post an adorable picture or two ASAP. :)

Adventures in DIY

Today I embarked on my first ever do-it-yourself refinishing project. I am refinishing a dresser from my childhood:
for our guest room, which will have a semi-nautical, travel-inspired theme. Today I started sanding the drawers so they can be repainted this color:

I'd like to try posting a picture (or several) of my every day life on the blog here (known by many as Project 365, so here are a few from today's adventure:

Stay tuned for more pictures of the guest room makeover, random snapshots from my daily life, and more!
