He did the mash, he did the monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
Day 214.  Happy Halloween!!!!  I got to take a nap today, hooray!

Saturday, October 30, 2010

It's getting dark and it's all too quiet
And I can't trust anything now
Day 213.  I need to eat some lunch and then start getting things together for tonight's Halloween party.  We'll see if the makeup turns out the same or if I go even craaaazier, muahahaha!  I need to be a lady Dracula one year or something, just so I can run around all night and say "mu-ha-ha-ha!" Maybe next year.

Life makes love look hard
Day 212.  Joey & Steph had an aweeeesome Halloween party tonight.  Best costumes I've seen in awhile.  I golf clap for all of the creativity. :o)

You're only sixteen
You poor little thing
Day 211.  So, I made these crazy little mummy cookies for Halloween...but you can't see them yet.  I will however, show you the cake I made for Emily's birthday.  I think it was way cooler looking sans icing, but it wouldn't have tasted better that way.  Everything needs a little chocolate!

Be a winner, be a star
Be happy to be who you are
Gotta be yourself, gotta make a plan
Gotta go for it while you can
Day 210.  Editing, editing, editing.

DJ put that record on
That's my song
Day 209.  I admire working mamas and papas.  Ryne and I made dinner after work, and we didn't eat until about 7:30!  I can't imagine eating that late every work night.  Well, I suppose that's why no one wants to work til 5:00 or later (like me).  :-P

Monday, October 25, 2010

Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together
And try them out you see
Day 208.  Worked on my Halloween costume tonight, muhahahahaha!

I don't need a parachute, baby if I've got you
Baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute
You're gonna catch me
Day 207.  Oh Indiana weather, how you like to mess with my photo shoots.

Saturday, October 23, 2010

With a taste of a poison paradise
I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic
Day 206.  Four things (in particular) were great today. First, I got to sleep in!  Ahhh, I loooove it!  Second, Ryne was going to go get bagels for us, but Mom left a note on my door saying that they already had some and to come on over! Yay!  That meant a chocolate chip bagel for me, yum!  Third, I drank a glass of dry red wine at Colleen & Jeff's house.  It's on my list, and it was good!  Fourth, I watched a scary movie (also on my list) with Ryne, Ryan, and Brittany.  It was ... weird.  A fun day, all in all. :o)

And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
Day 205.  Tonight, Ryne & I headed down to Bloomington to see the lovely Ingrid Michaelson in concert again.  She puts on a really good show, and we both like her music.  We ate giant pancakes at the Village Deli, had drinks at Sports (we were the first ones in there at 9:00ish!), and then crossed the street to the concert at the Bluebird.  We had an awesome night!

Thursday, October 21, 2010

The times we had
Oh, when the wind would blow with rain and snow
Were not all bad
Day 204.  Do you like the new show "Outsourced"?  I sure do!

P.S. This photo is from my first trip back to Chicago since I was in 4th grade (taken back in May-ish).  This is as close as I could get to the stinkin' bean, since there was some lightening and crap.  All I wanted was the essential photo of myself + friends in the bean.  Next time, I'll get you my pretty ... and your ... yeah, I've got nothin'.  I should go to sleep now, and spare you the jibberish.

I ain't sayin' I'm perfect
But I promise I'm worth it
Day 203.  I really like when I remember to set a tangible goal for myself, and then I reach said goal.  Makes me feel good about myself. :o)

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Morning light shall burst bright
And keep us here safely
Day 202.  Ryne's back today, yay!!!  I've always thought having a photo shoot at the airport during sunset would be incredible.  It would probably involve breaking a few laws though, hmm... ;o)

Down like her temperature
Cause to me she's zero degrees
She's cold, over freeze
Day 201.  Today's kind of yucky, gray, and cold.  It's hard to believe at this time yesterday, it was sunny, warm, and bright (in the colorful sense).  My front porch is kind of sticking out.  (If you don't know what that means, just ask.)

Sunday, October 17, 2010

You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
DAY 200!!!!  Two hundred days.  Daaaang.  Today, Stephanie and I held our first annual (maybe) Fall Photo Day.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.  The leaves were gorgeous, the clients were lovely, and the temperature was warm.  :o)

P.S. This is one of my all time favorite pictures.  I was saving it for something special. ;o)

Saturday, October 16, 2010

I am the king of wishful thinking
Day 199.  I did some gardening, pie creation, and editing today.  Very, very random...but does that really surprise anyone?

Friday, October 15, 2010

Lollipop lollipop oh lolli lolli lolli
Day 198.  Sometimes, you just need to be alone so you can get stuff done.

Also, I'm loving this version of "Lollipop" from the "Whip It" soundtrack.

Oh, and those are chocolate witch fingers from Halloween. :o)

A desert sunrise, you warm my soul
Painting me in shades of clay, covering me whole
And I'm a lizard, sunbathing in your radiance
Day 197.  Today, not such a great day.  I'll spare you the details.  In more positive news, I'm about to watch "The Office" and "Outsourced," both of which make me giggle!  :o)

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true
Day 196.  O'Charley's = awesome.  Be a believer. 

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

With the wind so sweetly driftin'
Through the ripening corn
Day 195.  Wearing leggings in October makes me very happy.  How much longer I can continue this trend I do not know... *sigh*

Today's Guest Blogger: Miss Bridget

Look up it's up to you
Remember all the reasons to give grace
And mercy for all the time you're here
Day 194.  Hi Brie's friends and loyal blog readers! This is Bridget filling in for Brie today. I have been friends with Brie for almost 20 years (crazy, huh?)! We both have blogs and thought it would be fun to guest post on each other's for a day. If you'd like to follow my blog, just go to ...I am currently teaching in Honduras for the next eight months!

My blog is typically much more long winded than Brie's, so I'll keep this brief...

I hiked and conquered Mount Boqueron! Waaaa Hoooooo! Sonia (in my intercambio class) told me I would be huffing and puffing twenty minutes in and boy was she right! The hike took three hours straight up hill and then another hour and a half to climb down. At one point I really didn't think I'd make it to the top, so I stopped, said a little prayer, and just went at my own pace. It was actually lovely to hike that way. I was able to take lots of awesome pictures and stop to appreciate all of the beauty that surrounded me. My tukus is definitely feeling it today though. In the fifteen minutes it's taken me to type this blog post I've heard rapid gunfire, blaring reggaeton music, and now "Apple Bottom Jeans" is playing -- haha! Only in Juticulpa...

Never be the same again
Day 193.  I did maternity shoot #2 today, and it was a hot one!  I think it was about 85 degrees here today, which is definitely not the norm.  I like the heat though, but feel bad for pregnant mommas who are trying to keep their cool in pictures.  I'm so tired from this weekend, but am going to have to find my second wind.  I'm going to the Guster concert tonight, so I need to be awake for it!  Wish me luck...

It's here and I like it
Gonna pack the dance floor
Rock the dance floor
Day 192.  Today, I did my very first maternity session!  Woo hoo!  I think it went well. :o) Later in the day, I received some VERY happy news from a friend.  I spent most of the afternoon/evening with one of my favorite couples, shooting their engagement pictures in Blooooomington!  Ah, it was a warm, gorgeous fall day.  I loved it!

Friday, October 8, 2010

Two points for honesty
Day 191.  I took a trip to Goodwill and bought all KINDS of treasures. :-P

P.S. They lied.  Orchids are NOT easy.  It went from gorgeous to practically dead way too fast.

Support a Great Cause!

Ryne is participating in the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundationwalk to cure diabetes on Saturday, October 9th in Military Park in Indianapolis. Please join him in the walk and/or donate to the cause! You can do both at . 

Thanks in advance for any support you can give!!!

You're a shining ember
I'll be shining armor
Day 190.  Cierra and I went to Ceramic Dreams and painted pottery.  I think hers will be really pretty, and I think mine will be more of a "unique creation," if you catch my drift. ;)  

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Go and run through the hallways, and find your way to the door
Day 189.  The pumpkin ice cream at BRICS is fan-freakin-tastic.  It's like the ice cream version of your favorite pumpkin pie.  Plus, "one scoop" ends up filling a whole sundae glass.  Mmm, mmm, good!

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Why waste a second not loving who you are?
Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable
Day 188.  We have the best cookies at work.  Chocolate chip cookies, to be more precise.  I swear they put crack or some other addictive ingredient in them, because they are fantastic.  I'd say that I'd bring you some sometime, but I don't see that happening, as that would require copious amounts of self control on my part. :-P

Monday, October 4, 2010

You understand
That you're always in my heart
You're always on my mind
Day 187.   Hi. :)

Sunday, October 3, 2010

Oh hey baby, don't you run away
Come here and finish what you started
Day 186.  Finished up the crop today (scrapbooking weekend) and got to hang out with some friends for Football Sunday!

Saturday, October 2, 2010

You better take it from a geek like me
I can save you from unoriginal dum-dums
Day 185.  Days like today make me so happy that I'm inside and not missing some gorgeous autumn weather.  Cold + rain + yuck = a day inside for me!  Got lots of scrapbooking done today and had fun, too!

Friday, October 1, 2010

I want a love that's for real
And without that, no deal
Day 184.  Jammin' out on my day off from work.  I'm scrapbooking with a bunch of ladies (120+ to be more precise).  I know you're totally jealous.  ;)
