It's The Beat That My Heart Skips When I'm With You

Day 156.
My dinner today looked like a five year old with a large stomach was mowing down on some food. 
Turns out I'm not going to Kentucky tomorrow, but Andrew is coming home!! I'm slightly disappointed because I really did want to visit another part of the country I have never been before, but I can't help but be excited that my husband will be home and I don't have to sleep alone in our big bed anymore!! 
Also, every once in a while I like to depress myself by looking at houses in the area we live currently (where we would love to keep living), but even the cheap houses are crazy expensive. I found one I think (at least from the limited pictures...) I would really love and even though it is cheap (it's a short sale) we can't afford. Yet!! 
Reminder to self: Enjoy where you are. It is where you are meant to be.

NOTE TO SPARSE READERS: I read this guys 365 photo blog thingy and he said for a month he did just black and white photos. I figured, since the first of the month is tomorrow, I will do the same! Sounds like an even more interesting challenge. Get ready for some really neutral pictures folks!

Sorry, I was apparently in a talkative mood today.

Get Up, Stand Up

 Day 155.
My fortune. "Don't wait for success, start ahead without it."
Interesting. Everyone has a different view of success and I am accepting that my view of success may be different than others, but that does not mean it is not considered success or any less important than other ideas. 

Watching X-Files With No Lights On

Day 154.
The shower curtain. Not feeling too well. Not sure if it is because I ate too much chinese food, or if I am getting nervous/excited for going to Kentucky.

Day 153. 
This post is in opposite order of when I took them. I could fix that, but I am not going to because that would take a lot of time. Not that I don't have a lot of time, I just would like to be reading or studying or something of the sort. 
These are from Hurricane Irene in MA. Not too much damage. Not sure if she is still coming around, but I did lose cable/internet for a little bit. 'Tis a tad bit windy out, but it was nice.

My Heart Beats So It Scares Me To Death

 Day 152.
Technically, these pictures were taken JUST after midnight, so they count as today's photos. So cool! 
Had a good night going out for a friend's birthday who I hadn't seen in a long, long time.

Sweet Caroline Bup Bup Bahh, Good Times Never Seem So Good

Day 151.
Sometimes it is cool to be a tourist in your own city or town. I should do it more often. However, in like 4 days I will be becoming a tourist in a new state... Kentucky! That's right folks, I am going to Kentucky to visit my long lost husband! Alright, he has been gone for just over a week, but still. I miss him!! This hurricane coming in is not as exciting if I lose power all by myself. 

I See A Red Door And I Want It Painted Black

Day 150.
Deliciousness. If you ever get the chance to eat Redbones, do it. It has some amazing pulled pork.

You Should Let It Burn

Day 149.
Andrew is gone for a few days and I go and burn myself. Big fail on my behalf. I was cooking a mini pizza and burned myself on the top rack of the oven while trying to remove the pizza. It looks like it is healing, but slowly. I have a band-aid on it now as I type.

Just Shoot For The Stars

Day 147.
About two years ago, Andrew decided to grow an avocado plant and this is one of its leaves. It is getting so big now that we transferred it into a bigger pot. Soon, we'll have to get an even bigger one!

A Sky Full Of Lighters

Day 146.
My cannoli from andrew's grandmother's 70th birthday!

All You Need Is Love

 Day 145.
While on this creative kick, I am finally making our wedding scrapbook. These are my two favorite pages so far. I think the one I am on right now will be another favorite as well. The top picture has the reading and the bottom has our vows. 
What an amazing day that was. <3

And All I Know Is I Feel Lost Without You “I Miss You” Is Not Enough

 Day 144.
 With Andrew gone, I decided to try art as a hobby. Not sure it will work out, but it came out relatively nice. Cool pictures at least. 

Final Product!

Goodbye To You

Day 143.
Adios Andrew! I hope he has a safe flight and enjoys his stay in Kentucky, but hurry back home to me! :)

Wish Upon A Star, But Do You Know What Stars Are?

Day 142.
More laundry. If you read this blog, pretty sure you think all I do is laundry. I think you are actually fairly accurate hypothetical person in my head.

We'll Have The Life We Knew We Would

 Day 141.
This giant bird was sitting on a fence by my work! He was huuuge. I would have tried to get a closer picture, but I was afraid he was going to eat my eyeballs.

I Am The Luckiest

Day 139.
This is my bouquet from Andrew and I's wedding exactly one year ago. It was beautiful (both the day and the flowers) and now my bouquet hangs on the front door of our apartment. Last year I married the most amazing man in the entire world and I can't say this enough... my life is incredible. I am the luckiest girl in the whole world.

I Think I'm Turning Japanese. I Really Think So.

Day 137.
Yum, sushi! I had some for lunch and then my brother and his wife celebrated 21 years of marriage (!!) together over sushi and Harry Potter while I babysat my adorable niece and nephew. We had tons of fun and they are truly wonderful, brilliant, exciting kids. I love, love, love watching them grow up. 
So, the moral of this post: sushi makes the world go round. ;)
PS- The sushi featured is a California roll and cucumber avocado roll. That's right... one has FISH in it. :O

Don't Make Me Change My Mind

Day 136.
I don't know... it looks fancy.

I Want To Get Away. I Want To Fly Away.

Day 135.
I broke this at work. Luckily, they can just order another door. Unfortunately, I now have the nickname "Hulk".

Now I Know My ABC's, Next Time Won't You Sing With Me

 Day 134. 
Oh hey. It's my keyboard. 
I am sick again. I am thinking it was being in the rain about a week ago when going to trivia. Silly me. I love being out and getting soaked in the rain, but it never goes well later on in the week.

In A Place Where We Only Say Goodbye It Stung Like A Violent Wind That Our Memories Depend On A Faulty Camera In Our Minds

 Day 133.
Not a day goes by that I don't wish we had had more time together. 
I just want to make you proud and be the best person I can be. Thank you for your guidance, love, patience, and unbelievable support. I miss you, daddy.
