Project 365, Days 337-343

337:365 Utah has some of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. Especially in the winter.


338:365 I found 3PO and R2 hanging out in a store's display.


339:365 Provo's downtown sure does put on a fantastic lights show!


340:365 I love this little bird ornament that we somehow got as a present from someone (not sure who). It makes me happy :)


341:365 Ryan and I had the opportunity to take pictures inside of a large blow-up snow globe, courtesy of Google Fiber who set up and took the pictures. They didn't turn out that great but they still make me really warm and fuzzy inside.


342:365 Went to Ryan's work's holiday party at the restaurant we got engaged in. And we ate WAY TOO MUCH food while we were there, ooh boy.


343:365 Ryan caught a fairy! This is the tiniest bottle either of us has ever seen and we had to have it, plus it has a fairy from the Zelda game series inside of it.


Alright, another week down! Just a few more to go :)

Project 365, Days 330-336

330:365 Our second Thanksgiving meal of the week as made by Emily and company. So delicious!  


331:365 Went to the St. Louis City Museum and in between having lots of fun we paused and thought metaphorically about what can be accomplished when dozens of small things are aligned to perform one task. Such a cool exhibit!



332:365 Home, Sweet Home! Love our festive wreath :)



333:365 Delicious pomegranates! Their seeds remind me of little gems.


334:365 Decorating our Christmas tree. A favorite activity of mine that fills me with Christmas excitement!


335:365 Frost is both absolutely beautiful but also an absolute pain to scrape during the winter months.


336:365 My current obsessions: audio books and Harry Potter.


I've fallen a bit behind in my weekly update posts and in general my blogging energy has been waning a bit. But I promise to catch up before the end of this project (which is so close I can taste it)!

Project 365, Days 323-329

323:365 I made this! It got a little jostled on the way home from the Relief Society activity where we made these ornaments but I still love it.




324:365 Celebrating Ryan's dad's birthday a bit early so that we could all be together. Fun fact: he and my mom share the same birthday (November 25th).


325:365 Passing my time on our flight to Missouri by knitting.


326:365 Every time I'm home I can't help but take pictures of my family's fur-babies! This is Bacon, my brother's pup. Usually he can be found wrestling playfully (if not a bit aggressive as well) with his  fur-cousin Bones (my sister's dog). He's a handsome dog!


327:365 Hiking at Rock Bridge State Park with the family. It was a gorgeous day for it too.


328:365 Peek-a-boo! Ryan and I spent the entire afternoon in a sleepy town called Rocheport fully intending to shop at their ample antique stores but everything was closed. So there we stayed, stranded, until my mom's dentist appointment was over and she could pick us up. Needless to say we found ways to keep ourselves busy.


329:365 Happy birthday to my mother who turned 60 on this day. We had an early Thanksgiving dinner followed by yummy dessert and present opening. It was a nice evening!


Another fun fact: two of the photos in this post were iPhone photos.

Project 365, Days 316-322

316:365 The ivy on my work building is finally changing colors.


317:365 Christmas trees are up at the nearby mall :)


318:365 Autumn means making delicious stuffed acorn squash. Yum!


319:365 Yet another autumn leaf photo taken during our Sunday stroll, sorry not sorry.


320:365 Gloomy Monday evening.


321:365 Nothing like a custom-made soda from my favorite local soda shop to get me through a sleepy Tuesday afternoon. (This one was the Black Forest, diet dr. pepper with chocolate syrup and cherry flavor)


322:365 I just realized I had two pictures in a row with me holding something, ha! This one is of the stein my friend carried home for me from Germany. So excited to have a pair of them for Ryan and I!


Working on catching up blog posts. And then there are the content posts I need to write. I have my work cut out for me!

Project 365, Days 309-315

Sorry for being MIA for the last month or so, it's been a busy time what with all my traveling and holidays.

309:365 The pond I walked by every day on my way to the convention center in Munich where I worked. It was the most peaceful part of my day.


310:365 Cobblestone lit by the morning light.


311:365 The best part of Germany? Buying and eating all the Kinder eggs I could get my hands on.


312:365 A cool tunnel in the Munich subway system. We spent all night on our last night in Munich exploring and getting lost downtown. It was worth the loss of sleep to make memories in a city I hardly got to know.


313:365 A very cliché out-the-window plane shot of a beautiful sunset in the clouds.


314:365 I am thankful for my Thankful candle ha! It smells like Christmas/Thanksgiving.


315:365 First real snowfall of the season! So lovely.


I only have  a few more weeks of this project! Now I'm feeling a little bittersweet about it but mostly I'm excited to have actually done it :)

Project 365, Days 302-308

302:365 Painted my nails to match my Halloween costume!


303:365 And here I am in my costume! I wore a Rainbow Dash onesie to work and I have never been so comfy while doing my job.


304:365 Spent Halloween night up at Sundance on their Halloween lift ride. It was so much fun and we will definitely be doing it again next year!


305:365 Here's my finished knit hat! It came out a little big but for my first time knitting a hat I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.


306:365 Getting ready to fly out of the country on business!


307:365 Spotted this hilarious Jack-O-Lantern while I was walking to my local poll to vote. Probably my favorite one I've seen this year.


308:365 Made it to Germany and I have to say that this tiny little Euro penny is my favorite of the Euro coins. So cute!


I'll be playing catch-up this coming week so look for another blog tomorrow or Tuesday. And I definitely have to blog about my work adventure in Munich, Germany. Spoiler alert: it's really not that exciting of a trip. Definitely business-oriented.

Project 365, Days 295-301

295:365 I am a sucker for those little gourds they sell at the grocery stores at this time of year. They're so funky and cute, I have to buy a few every year!


296:365 Went to the Riverwoods to their Pumpkin Walk festival and had a blast!


297:365 A girl could get used to views like this during her runs.


298:385 Collected on my Sunday walk. I love autumn!


299:365 Mmmm, peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough!


300:365 I'm one of those people who loves candy corn! Absolutely love it.


301:365 Old phone, meet your replacement.


300 days down! We are 64 days away from the end of the year and being done with this project :)

Project 365, Days 288-294

288:365 Finally finished my gloves! They look so good if I do say so myself :)


289:365 Sometimes you can't help taking sunset pictures no matter how cliché they are nowadays.


290:365  More and more each day these autumn colors keep getting brighter and more vivid. I absolutely love it!


291:365 Late night pumpkin bakes. Yum!


292:365 While the trees change color year round, our company remains ForeverGreen ha!


293:365 This is our second time going to Jaker's pumpkin patch. Maybe this will become an annual thing! We certainly love it.


294:365 The clouds in front of the morning sun were so amazing this morning. Utah can be really impressive sometimes!


So close to 300 days! I need to get back to regularly blogging...
