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!
