Holy cannoli, it's been awhile!  Give me a minute to dust off the cobwebs.  There, that's better.  I'm honestly too busy to type much, but I have a ton of photos in my arsenal, so I'll just start posting a photo a day.  We'll make that work for now. :)

Stuck. In. My. Head.

Monday, April 8, 2013


It makes me soooooo happy to walk outside, sun shining, and NOT wear a jacket or coat!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013


I'm a little obsessed with quotes and desserts on Pinterest.  I'm trying to find a good dessert to make for Easter.  Man, life has gotten busy, but I like it.  Weird thing is, it's gotten a lot slower this week at work, but busier after hours.  Trying to get used to the new normal!

Excited to have weekend plans. :)

Hilarious old school Sinbad.  My favorite part starts at 1:26.  Enjoy!

Don't worry, God hears you.

God has a plan.

Note to self: chill out!

PATIENCE.  Will I ever learn how to be patient?  We'll see...

I'm really grateful for my church community and the weekly brunch I get to have with my parents and "other parents."  Nice way to spend a Sunday morning. :)

Mexican food and hot chocolate (not together, though).  These are two of my faaaaavorite things! Saw Les Mis today and it was incredible.  This girl, who is not a fan of crying in public, almost cried a few times.  Go see it on the big screen!

Three months ago today, Grandma went up to Heaven.  I still miss her all the time, especially her comments on my hair, questions about my "love life," and stories about random things on TV.  I feel so much happier, though, knowing that she's in a much better place where there isn't any suffering or sadness.  I still think of her every time I see a 3 Musketeers candy bar, haha.

We've got lots of ice, ice baby ... dun DUN dun dun dun, dun dun dun...

For those of you not in Indiana today, the snow + wind combo really resembled a snow globe.  Looked pretty until you had to walk out into it!

A good workout is like a human reset button.

This jam is purrrrrfect for your exercise of choice.  Enjoy!

Life is full of surprises.  Some are good, some are bad, some are just confusing.  I had really good start to my weekend, but am now feeling ... kinda lost.  Taking Lent to try and refocus my life.  Figure out what's going on with me, then maybe try dating again.  Who knows, maybe I'll figure a few things out. At the very least, I'll get some good prayers in.  Hope you all had a lovely weekend, especially if you're one of four couple friends that are/were on the road this weekend.  I'm pumped for this summer's wedding gigs, vacations, and work trips!

Focus on the positive.

Have faith in God's plan!

I had a very odd (but overall good) weekend.  Hope you had a great one!  Any unique Valentine's Day plans?  Ohh, I bet you can't share them.  You wouldn't want to ruin the surprise. ;)

Wednesday, February 6, 2013


Babies, babies everywhere!  I think this is the time in my life where I've known the most pregnant women.  It's pretty cool since that means I get to shop for baby schtuff!  I get to find out tomorrow if my friend is having a boy or a girl, yippee! :)

Dear little girls, (most) men are complete idiots.  Exceptions include: dad, grandpas, cool uncles, and best friends.  Also, don't try to figure them out because it never works.  Find an older, wiser woman to figure things out with you.

Today was a fat kid day.  I just kept snacking and eating, argh!  Good thing I made it to the gym and actually broke a sweat for the first time, woo hoo!

Thursday, January 31, 2013


It's amazing how much things change in a few days, weeks, and months.  Blink and you'll miss it!  I'm a heavy Pinterest user lately, so I feel like I'm full of cliche inspirational quotes inserted into everyday conversation.  Let's hope it's not that bad.

Elephants on the interstate?!

Having a great weekend; hope you are, too!

This song is popular, but the video is even better:

I love pineapple on pizza.  I can't figure out why I don't like it otherwise, though.  Weirdo!

Wednesday, January 23, 2013


Life is FULL of little surprises, you just have to be open to them...and some you have to work for a little bit.  Either way, life is good.  :)

Thursday, January 17, 2013


I joined a gym today, less than a month after our exercise classes stopped at work!  I really thought it would take me longer to get back on the wagon.  Woo hoo!

Friends (if any still read my blog): would you attend a monthly or quarterly friends dinner?  I'd like to host it most of the time (because I like having people over), but would also be open to making it a rotating thing.  Assigned pot luck so no one is breaking the bank.  We'd all cook a little more often than we currently do (my guess).  I need to learn how to cook more than my 3 fall backs!  :oP  Open to anyone we all feel comfortable having in our homes.  Your thoughts?

Day 1000

Here we are - day 1000!  Funny thing is, my life isn't all that different from when I started this project.  I'm typing on the same computer in the same house.  A few things have changed, though.  I think {and hope you agree} my photos have improved.  I've aged {like a fine wine ;) }.  I have a different job, different outlook on life, and different {really just additional} friends.  I'm still looking for the right guy for me and still trying my best to be a positive person.

No need for any dramatic goodbyes.  After all, this is just a blog.  It's not like I'm leaving for real!  I'm still going to post photos all the time.  What else would I do with all of them?  (Currently, there are 564 photos in the folder.)

Laters, blog readers.  Thanks for reading over the last 1000 days (since April 2010 - with breaks here and there).

Day 999

Wow, almost 1,000 days.  This blog has been around for awhile, and has been a fun way to share photos of things I've seen and share my perspective on things that have happened.  And to think, I started it all as a competition on April Fool's Day 2010.  Funny how small things can impact your life!

Day 998

It's amazing to me how much better I can feel when prescribed the proper OTC medication.  One little pill and I can function again!  It only helped that it was sunny and almost 70 degrees here today.  Not bad for January!  I had one of those can't-miss-totally-awesome shopping days.  Now, I'm being serenaded by the rain as I go to sleep.  Good day! :)

Have you had a Frisco Melt from Steak 'N Shake?  It'll change you (for the better).  Mmm...

Day 996

Exercise is the solution to many of life's problems.

Day 995

Today, I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon at the Visit Indy annual meeting Downtown at the Indiana Convention Center.  Markey's did a really, really good job on the setup, lights, screens, video, etc.  Seriously top notch work.  I think there were between 400-500 people there, and I got a little networking time in.  Since most of these people were older men, and their name tags were handwritten, it was a little difficult to read in an inconspicuous way while walking by.  Oh well.  Looking forward to attending more Visit Indy events to network and bring more people into the city!

P.S. I had Sugar Cream Pie today for the first time (just the filling in a cup).  Has it always been amazing?

Day 994

Make sure your dad turns your headlights off if he puts your car away.  Otherwise, you'll leave for work and your car won't start! :oP

I really like this song, and I find myself singing it in my head during the day.  Totally pictured the guy kid with some sort of facial hair.  Maybe it'll come in later this year.

Day 993

For those of you that know me, what makes me happy (outside of babies, hugs, good men, and food)?

Photography and/or our photography business is the correct answer!  So, after my not-so-hot weekend filled with things that made me feel ... less than stellar, I needed a pick-me-up.  (I don't know why I'm all about the hyphens today.)  Dave (hi, Dave!) apparently knew and started gmail chatting with me which definitely improved my mood last night.  Then, today, I got yet another wedding request for this summer.  How cool is that?!  So far, I'm up to 2 friend wedding requests and 1 maternity session.  It's only January 7th, kids.  I'm lovin' this.

I've said it before.  I'll say it again.  Life is about the simple things.  Figure out what makes you happy and celebrate it!

Day 992

I have to start working out again.  The lack of blood pumping, muscle exercising goodness is making my body go through withdrawal!  I don't like being this blah lump of girl.  Working on a plan!

Saturday, January 5, 2013

Day 991

I just love getting my hair done.  It always looks better when someone else does it!

Day 989

This is totally a girl thing (I think).  I would l-o-v-e to have just one day a month - a standing reservation if you will - where all my girl friends get together and watch movies, chill in our jammies, bake and eat yummy foods, and just chat.  For those of you that went to college with me, yes, that is basically what I did for 4 years with my roommates.  Yes, I miss that and them terribly.  That is all! :)


Drooling yet?  The pictures don't do it justice at all, as I was more concerned with eating these brownies than photographing them.  Make these for your sweetie and maybe they'll work for you. ;)
Knock You Naked Brownies - YUM!

Day 988

Back to work...

Day 987

Holiday Hangover ... it happens every year!

Indy friends, let's plan a good night to go out for Devour Downtown.  Nothing makes me happier than food and friends. :)
