Today is Day 82 on my Project 365 journey. Only 2 cat pictures today. I’ll hold for the applause.
For my previous Project 365 posts, you can go HERE and start at the bottom. Today we’re starting with Day 63. As always, click on images to enlarge.
Day 63, I’ve recently become obsessed with bookends. I saw these recently at Target and all I can say is, I
want need them to be on my bookshelf (hint, hint). Day 64, chocolate chip cookie dough. I don’t even like chocolate and these cookies actually turned out rather gross. I blame it on the fact I hadn’t been to the grocery store in a while and my refrigerator was depressingly empty. Another reason why I don’t feel grown up. Grown ups have full fridges. Lately, ours has resembled that of a college frat boy’s—lots of booze, very little actual nutrients.
Day 65, my sister and I showed up to my parents’ house for Mother’s Day to this lovely gift from our dear old Dad. No photoshop here…this is an actual brand of wine that comes in both white and red. My Dad thinks he’s hilarious. Day 66, remember those unwelcome houseguests I’ve blogged about before? It’s summer…which means it’s hot…which means They. Are. Back. I had to break out the handy dandy
wooden candlestick roach killer. No comment on how long it stayed in our front room before my sister caved and disposed of the intruder. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
Day 67, this heap of books is why I’m a broke ass. Dad, 1. Me, 0. Day 68, I actually didn’t take this picture (do I get points for Instagram-ing it?). I went to Alchemy with my sister for MPACT‘s Happy Hour and completely forgot to take a picture while I was there, so I cheated and used one from their website. I know. I’m slacking. It’s better than another image of Mulligan, though. Right? I’m just trying to provide you all with a little variety. Really, I’m looking out for you.
Day 69, I always work to music/tv/some type of sound. In order to drown out the noise from my sister’s poor choice of TV viewing that was echoing from the living room (cough, Krapdashians, cough), I broke out the earbuds to listen to a little Lucy Schwartz. My ears thanked me. Day 70, Mulligan! He’s such a pretty cat. He’s also sneaky and likes to take over my office chair every time I get up from it. But, he’s pretty, so I forgive him.
Day 71, I hit the parents’ pool again, with a little company from Odd Thomas. Day 72, shut it. Mulligan is amazing. So amazing, he defies the odds of logic and enjoys baths. You know…just your average, everyday cat.
Day 73, my copy of Odd Thomas has seen better days, considering I’ve read it once or twice or okay six times. The movie comes out this November, so I was catching up. I’ll probably read it at least once more before November. Day 74, another happy hour, this time with a friend I don’t see enough of. We met at Beauty Shop which is also in my neighborhood, within walking distance. Yes, I’m a walking advertisement for Cooper Young. Move here. Or not. I’ll leave the choice of being awesome up to you.
Day 75, Revenge season finale. Have you become obsessed? It only took one episode and my sister and I were hooked. Day 76, I don’t claim to be a good driver. I’m horrible, actually. I speed, follow too closely, have awful road rage (in the privacy of my car, I’m not a complete raging lunatic). It’s not something I am proud of, nor is it something I’m so upset about that I feel I need to spend a lot of time trying to change. Priorities. Here’s Maddie trying to jump out the back window of my moving vehicle, obviously having used her extra strong puppy senses to pick up on my lack of decent driving skills. Dogs are so smart.
Day 77, my sister’s high school reunion was this past weekend. Our house turned into pre-party central for the Bartlett High School Class of 2002, seen here taking over our kitchen/dining room. Luckily, our house escaped her reunion weekend with only one casualty: my shower curtain—which somebody apparently got into a fight with at 2 am Friday night. Poor thing, it had no chance. Drunk friend, 1. Shower curtain, 0. Day 78, I helped out at two weddings for a photographer client of mine, the second of which took place at The Peabody Skyway/Rooftop. You could literally smell the money being spent. They had saucers on the tables with butter carved into little ducks. I have no doubt that it cost more than my annual salary and therefore was absolutely beautiful.
That’s all for today. 16 images at one time is my limit. Check back tomorrow for another post (not Project 365).
