Project 365: Week 3!

Hello all! Sorry about the radio silence this past week. I got hit with something nasty and was unable to do anything but sleep and watch trashy tv. But real life called last night and said if I didn’t show up I would be fired. Needless to say I have a very busy week ahead of me. I just love a good game of catch-up.

Here are the things I was eternally grateful for this third week of 2012:

15/365: Cheesy Sweet Potato Fries. All the flavor, slightly less guilt.

16/365: Snow Day.

17/365: Organization tools. My life savers.

18/365: Date Night. Chinese food and movies in bed.

19/365: Girls night in. Something that was much needed after my week.

20/365: My necklace. The heart pendant was a gift from Mister on our first Christmas together. The Opal pendant was a gift to my mom from my dad many moons ago.

21/365: My quilt. It was made by my grandmother and it is one of the warmest things on the planet, it’s also fun and colorful. I love it very much.

Have a great week everyone!



Project 365- Week 2!

Hello all!

I hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend so far, and if you are lucky enough to have tomorrow off then I hope you have a great long weekend.

Here are the pics from week two of something everyday that I am thankful for.

Someone that will make crazy concoctions with me

8/365: A mister that will make crazy concoctions in the kitchen with me.

A bed I didn't have to make

9/365: Clean sheets on a bed I didn’t have to make. Apparently Gypsy is pretty thankful for this too.

warm lunch on a cold day

10/365: Warm lunch on a very, very cold day.


11/365: Wintertime sunsets


12/365: Mister has my favorite mountain range as the screensaver on his phone. You know, in case I get homesick.

beautiful walks home

13/365: My neighborhood is pretty amazing. Every time I walk through it on my way home from school it reminds me that my life should be directed by John Hughes.

good friends that give us good music

14/365: These are some of my friends, they’re in a band. When they play in town it’s always a good time. Something to be very thankful for indeed.

Have a great week everybody!

Project 365!

I decided to give myself a challenge this year, I wanted something that was creative and fun and also a little challenging. I had seen a few other bloggers do a Project 365 and thought I would give it a try.

It’s pretty easy, and extremely difficult at the same time. Much like most things. Basically, you choose something to photograph everyday. You can choose a theme, something like your food, or you can just take a random photo of your day. I chose a theme, I mean of course I chose a theme. Have you met me? After careful consideration I chose…

Something each day that I am thankful for.

And you thought I was going to say Gypsy! I thought about it…

It’s already proving to be a challenge. Not because there are a lack of things in my life I am grateful for on a daily basis, it’s that I have to remember to photograph them. But I think I’ll get used to it. Some of these are bound to be silly, don’t we all have days where we’re thankful for simply having access to some fro-yo?

Don’t worry, I’m not going to post these everyday. I’ll store them up and make one post a week, I think that could save us all.

So here we go:

Week One: January 1-7, 2012

Breakfast with mister at a very small table

1/365: Breakfast dates with mister, at very tiny tables


2/365: Gypsy for reminding me it’s okay to take it easy sometimes.

Food in the messy fridge

3/365: Food in the fridge, no matter how messy it is.

A view like this at work

4/365: This is the view from the office I work at, this day I got a raise. Something to be very thankful for.

Costco membership

5/365: My Costco membership. A year’s worth of laundry detergent, trash bags, and rice? Most definitely.

studying at UO

6/365: The opportunity to study here. Kind of a big deal to a small town Idaho girl.

drinks with friends

7/365: Making old friends new again over tequila shots. It happens.
