DAY 365!!!!

WOO HOO!  Happy 1st (full year) anniversary to my little blog!  I celebrated by having dinner with some lovely lady co-workers/friends.  Ok, we got together just to have girls' night, not for my blog's birthday.  :-P  We did have fun, though.  We drank Oliver hard apple cider and strawberry pina coladas while eating our partially gluten-free Mexican dinner.  We polished off some Edy's strawberry popsicles while playing an intense (ha!) game of Scrabble.

Do me a favor and let me know if you're reading my blog.  I'm interested to see if I have any readers after 365 days.

GOOO BUTLER!!!

Day 364

...I've almost been doing this for an entire year.  Weeeeird.

Well, my grandma is officially home from the nursing home/rehab.  We took dinner over there and ate as she was getting reacquainted with her apartment.  As if I could ever forget, my stubborn and sassy genes definitely come from her.  Good Lord, it's her way or the highway!  Apparently, if you try and tell a story  that she doesn't want to hear, she'll just turn up the TV.  Patience, patience, patience...my mother has a lot of it. :)

Day 363

Ryne and I saw "The Last Lions" at the Keystone Art Cinema last night.  We laughed, I almost cried, and we smiled when the cute little cubs were on the screen.  You should definitely check it out, even if only to see the sweet shots of Botswana and Africa as a whole from space!

Day 362

Monday, blah!  Positive note: I'm finishing up my cake balls that I started the other day.  If I see you tomorrow, I'll have a treat for you! :)

Day 361

I enjoy a good night out on the town with friends, especially when I get to wear tennis shoes.  Hey, we were watching basketball, so ... I was ... being festive!  It's a heck of a lot easier to dance and walk around at 2:30 am when you're NOT wearing heels, I can tell you that much.  :)

Day 360

5 Things I Like: March Edition
(I'm sure you've just been dying to read this. :-P )


  
  1. Le Creuset cookware.  If I ever get one of these, I'm sure it'll be awesome!
  2. Butler basketball.  March Madness is alive and well!  I've got to support the last hometown team in the tournament. 
  3. K&Company paper.  I would wallpaper with this stuff if I could...or if I had a wall in need of decoration. 
  4. Early Sunrise candle by Yankee Candle.  It's a little bit of citrus with comfy laundry.  Awesome. 
  5. Vitamin Water XXX.  I try not to drink it too often since it's full of sugar, but it's a great substitute for pop!  Plus, I like to live under the illusion that it actually has some health benefits.

Day 359

I love wearing jeans to work.  It just puts a little pep in my step. :)

Day 358

I had a great dinner with Ryne's family and some friends tonight.  Colleen and Courtney made a delicious beef brisket with a sun dried tomato sauce, egg noodles with olive oil and garlic, rolls, and salad.  I made a yellow cake with some caramel icing.  We ate very well!  We needed all of that to stay up late to watch Butler score another victory!

Day 357

I got a new j-o-b today! WOOOO HOOOO!  I can't wait! :D

Day 356

Today, I am just so stinking happy.  I have so much to be thankful for (recent events), am surrounded by wonderful family and friends, and am experiencing some lovely warm weather here.  I love it! :)  I hope your day is as great as mine has been!

Day 355

Great day!  Ryne and I went to P.F. Chang's tonight for dinner, and it was good.  I'd never been there before, and had never even really tried to use chopsticks.  It was funny to try, but I still don't get how they eat non-sticky rice!  Perhaps I should have a lesson from someone who actually knows how to use them. :oP

Day 354

Time sure files when I'm having fun. :)  After 2 1/2 days, I did 32 pages!  Included in that is my entire St. Lucia trip album.  I'm pretty pleased considering I'd only set a goal of 22 pages!  I hope the trend of happiness continues on throughout this week (especially tomorrow)!

Day 353

Scrapbook. Eat. Scrapbook. Eat. Sleep. Repeat!

Day 352

I'm a scrapbooking machine!  Fourteen pages - DONE!  I love it.  Let's see what tomorrow brings.  :)

Day 351

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I hope you're wearing green!

Day 350

All day, I've been thinking that it's Thursday, and therefore I will/won't eat certain things because tomorrow is no-meat-Lent-Friday.  I am off on Friday, so let's blame it all on that. ;)

Day 349

Today is shaping up to be a lovely day!  Thank you to anyone that's been sending prayers my way - they are greatly appreciated! :)

P.S. I <3 this bench.  Something about it is just ... awesome.  Plus, it's actually comfortable!

Day 348

Somehow, working late wasn't so bad.   Seems that when I remembered I could have a large piece of chocolate cake from my fridge, it was all a-ok. :)

Day 347

Silly Daylight Savings Time is messing with a lot of people today.  I don't mind it, mostly because it means we're getting closer and closer to summer!

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Day 346

Shopping + nice weather + bridal shower for a great friend = pretty good day.  Hope I get to have another great day tomorrow!

Day 345

Mom and I watched "You Again" tonight, and it was pretty good.

Thinking and praying for all of the people in Japan.  I can't even imagine what it must have been like to be there, feeling the earthquake for 5 minutes straight.  Then, on top of that, watching the water roll in and just destroy everything.  God be with them, all of the victims, their families, and friends.  I also hope that once it hits the west coast of North America (and any other islands in between) that there aren't any causalities.  Dave and Teresa are in Hawaii, and they're safe (at least they were this morning).  Hope it stays that way!

Day 344

I had a pretty good day today, and I hope to have many more (especially in the near future).  :)

Day 343

Part of my Lenten plan is to give up mid-afternoon junk food snacks at work.  (We have the most amazing giant chocolate chip cookies at work.)  It's really difficult, even when I bring in healthy substitutes.  Sometimes the stomach just wants buttery, sugary, chocolate-y goodness.

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

Day 342

Brugge has such delicious frites (fries).  The spinach salad with apples, bacon, and other yummy stuff almost makes me believe I'm counteracting them. ;)

Day 341

You've got to remember to keep your chin up on tough days.

Sunday, March 6, 2011

Day 340

I'm doing Stephanie's maternity pictures today, so I hope my creative side is awake and ready!
A few weeks ago, Rachel, David, Ryne, and I went on a double date.  Now I can cross #13 - go on a double date - off of my list of 50 goals for the year! :)

Day 339

Mardi Gras party tonight!

Friday, March 4, 2011

Day 338

It only took me almost two years to realize that a simple wireless extender would solve all of my internet problems.  Well, the point is, I have one now, and I'm so freakin' pumped to use the internet from my kitchen, dining room, living room, or any other room that I desire!  YAY technology! :)

Day 337

Ryne and I made these yummy ABC sandwiches tonight.  You should give them a whirl. :)
*We skipped the mustard and toasted the bread.

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Day 336

Last weekend, I made a bunch of chocolate chip cookies (per Cierra's incessant requests).  I had to make something since we lost two more people from our group (but luckily they just moved to a different account - so they're not really gone).  
*My current work situation is very much like a roller coaster ride. :/

Day 335

My tulips are growing!!!  They're maybe an inch out of the ground.  YESSSSS! :)
