Photo-A-Day February- Day 2

Day 2: Breakfast-

Today's breakfast consisted of a coffee and bowl of golden grahams with fresh berries, before work...and some fresh cantaloupe and a second coffee while at my desk.

I typically eat my breakfast in stages, that way I can usually skip my lunch.

I've also decided to do the Instagram Feb Photo-A-Day;

So here's Day 1 & Day 2 of that:

Day 1: Your View Today - unfortunately this is my 'view' 5 days a week.
Day 2: Words - A quote that I have tattooed on my left side ribs: " Dream as if you'll live forever, Live as if you'll die today" ~James Dean

Check back tomorrow for more photo fun!

Photo-A-Day February - Day 1

Hello all!

I've decided to try and push myself to blog more....therefore, to ease my way back into it I'm going to do the February Photo-A-Day Challenge.....but not the one everyone else is doing....I'm going to do January's P-A-D-C but in February. 'Why?" You ask, because I feel like it ;)

So here's the list:

I've decided to cross out 2 of the days since February is only 29 days...
I chose to disregard #4-Letterbox, because it refers to a photographic technique that I do not know how to do: About Letterbox Technique
I also chose to get rid of #16-Morning, because it's included in this first post.

Ok, here we go!
 Day One: You (Me)-
on the left is me when I wake up in the morning, and on the right is after I've beautified...
what a difference some makeup can do lol

That's all for tonight. Check back tomorrow for Day 2- Breakfast

Good night!

So PINTERESTing Sunday


Ok, I'm finally posting!

I've been obsessed with PINTEREST lately...and I've made a coup;e things that I found there.

First, I made these yummy mini danish:
They came out so good!

Second, I made Nutella hot cocoa...YES...I said NUTELLA hot cocoa!
This was also very yummy.

and Third, I did this little project also

Other than that, I've been pretty sick lately..Chris and I have been snuggled up just hoping to feel better.

and of course since I have a sore throat I HAVE to have some ice cream

well that's all for now...I hope you all have a nice night.

It's Not My Fault....

.....well maybe it is a little...

I've been a bad blogger again! My apologies.

It's just that after work, and errands, and damn pinterest (lol) It's time for bed!

I'm going to really try to be a better blogger.

I hope you all have a great night!

Wedding Update

Hello lovelies!

Just a quick wedding update:

I picked up my wedding shoes and I L.O.V.E. them! They are super comfy and stable so that's such a relief....I broke my foot about a year ago and it really bothers me when I wear some shoes...so I'm happy I found the perfect shoe for me.
I know I posted a picture of them but that was off of the payless website...here's a pic:

It's January already! This means that it's time for me to send out my 'save-the-date' cards. I sent some out around Christmas {I just included them in some pakages that I shipped} I'm very excited to start sending out the rest of them! EEK!

Yesterday Chris and I had the day off together {<3} and we went to breakfast at this great diner close to us:
Seriously yummy pancakes!
After brunch we hit the mall to make payments on our wedding bands and to get my engagement ring inspected. While we were there Chris decided to suprise me by paying off the balance on my band! I'm thrilled that we now own our wedding bands!
my band, his band, my set together
Don't you just love them? I know....I'm biased lol I'm just super happy ;)

As I already stated in my Christmas Wrap Up~Part 4...My mother was generous enough to buy us our cake knife and server set as well as our champagne flutes. They are simply beautiful:

I just think that they are simple, classic, and elegant....love them...and it means so much to me that she was the one who gave them to us. I love you mom!

Well that's about all for now!

Hope you are all well ~ check back soon for my 2011 Re-cap!
