Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Nine. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Nine. - Our First Ride! - Our first ride together was tonight and let me tell you, it's hard work! Riding a bike with changing gears, which I did not have as a kid, is really hard to get used to especially up hills. It really has shown me how out of shape I am. I love being outdoors with fresh air and spending time with William in a setting other then the house, or dinner, plus it's benefiting to both of us. As it gets easier to ride and I can start going faster we can use them for short trips or errands that need to be done instead of using the car, too! And I see so many people around our neighborhood that ride bikes and there is even bike clubs and trails that we can join. I think it's pretty darn exciting!

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Eight. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Eight. - "Move To The Other Side Of The Grill!" - Which is what was said right before snapping this photo. Since the days are getting shorter and cooler by the minute we broke out the grill one last time to have burgers and fries.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Seven. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Seven. - Workin' On My Fitness. - Along with the bike rides each night I've also been doing Pilates once or twice a week to tone up before the wedding. This exercise ball really helps with crunches and, believe me, the day after I was sore.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Six. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Six. - Biker Girl. - William and I made the decision to start riding bikes together after work each night. After doing as much research as possible as to what is the right bikes for both of us we found two reasonably priced bikes on Craig's List and meet up with the people to see if we actually liked the bikes or not. My bike, in this photo, is great - the seat is comfortable and the larger tires makes it easier to ride. I love that we have a hobby together, now, that is helping our well being. I road around our block just to get a feel of what it was like without William this night, he's getting his Saturday, and I felt like a kid again!

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Five. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Five. - Name Brands. - Since the grocery store was out of our usual spaghetti sauce, the cheapest they have, we had no choice but buy a name brand sauce. I've been trying to eat more organic foods so I got this sauce but I'm curious to know if big name brand are really organic or are just posing as organic to make the customer feel better about eating their foods. Either way the sauce was not as good as what we usually buy and I'll probably never get it again.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Four.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Four. - Left overs. - Just some left overs of tonight's dinner, Cheese Tortellini coated in Olive Oil with Parmesan Cheese.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Three. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Three. - A Walk Around The Block. - We decided to take Bella on a walk so she could get some of that puppy energy out and we could continue training her on how to walk with a leash. When first starting out on the walk she's a little hyper and all over the place but as ten or fifteen minutes passes she starts to calm down. She loves to smell anything and everything along the way. Maybe of these days she can go on a walk and behave!

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Two. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-Two. - New Computer Chair. - Instead of continuing to use the Dining Room chair as our "office chair" we decided it was time to buy a real one. There is just something about a Dining Room chair that just ins't comfortable, go figure. After getting to Best Buy we found out that the chairs are outrageously expensive and settled on a small semi-comfortable black desk chair, that reclines, for a little over forty dollars. And when we are able to we will upgrade to a much nicer on in the future.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-One. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty-One. - Addressing Invitations. - Tonight was spent filling out invitations and stuffing envelopes. I finished sending out a few Wedding Invitations that I missed the first time and the Bridal Shower Invitations. Talk about a hand cramp!

Day Two Hundred & Twenty. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twenty. - Fighting the Crowds. - For the first time in a very long time, since we moved I think, I ventured out to the grocery store. The Wal-Mart near us is a Super Wal-Mart that has everything you can imagine inside so it's always really crowded. I sure do miss our Neighborhood Wal-Mart that hardly had anyone in it, ever. Anyway, the point is that I actually went grocery shopping! And let me tell you it was a night mare between screaming, and running, kids and isle's being so full that you can hardly push your buggie through was not fun. At all. Now I remember why I hate shopping for groceries or shopping at all period.

Day Two Hundred & Nineteen. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Nineteen. - The One! - After months and months of searching we've finally found the Bridesmaid's Dress that my, gorgeous, baby cousin will be wearing at the wedding.

Day Two Hundred & Eighteen. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Eighteen. - Birthday Present. - And here, of course, are the new speakers that William got for his birthday. He sure is getting a lot of face time lately, huh? Anyway, he finally got them all hooked up and situated in the spots he wanted them. Polk Audio is apparently a very good brand, just sayin'.

Day Two Hundred & Seventeen. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Seventeen. - Girl Maintenance. - After hearing what a great product the Neutorogena Wave is I had to get one myself to try and rid myself of these terrible break outs I've been having. I will say that it cleans your face well and leaves it incredibly soft but I didn't notice a dramatic change though I've been using it only two weeks. I'm out of the soap pads right now but hopefully I'll be able to get a refills and continue to use it. I love the way it makes my skin feel but I wish it would clear up everything a little faster. I suppose there's no such thing as a over night cure, eh?

Day Two Hundred & Sixteen. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Sixteen. - Belated Birthday Dinner. - William's Mom came to visit and after they spent a few hours in Fry's, a computer store, William came home with new speakers. Then she took us all out to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. Normally I don't like Wings, like Wing Stop - his favorite place ever, but I was glad to see they had more then just wings on their menu. And I'll have to admit the food was pretty tasty, even William said the Wings there were the best he's ever had.

Day Two Hundred & Fifteen. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Fifteen. - Mowing Day. - After nursing our hangovers for the better part of the day we decided it was time to get up and start finishing up things that needed to be done around the house, especially mowing. Since we still have quite a bit of construction around us trash some how magically ends up in our yards, the neighbors too, and so I had to pick up all that before he could mow. Our lawn is finally starting to turn green though and not look like it's dying which is a huge improvment from when we first moved in.

Day One Hundred & Fourteen. - Project 365.

Day One Hundred & Fourteen. - Happy Birthday To You! - I apologize in advance if this is offensive to anyone, I marked it as private for that very reason. But this is the best photo from William's Birthday that I could find considering I only took about 6 and most of them were of these two clowns, William and his friend Gabe. After we met for dinner and spent a hour catching up and talking we moved the party downtown to have drinks and continue talking. Getting to the bar we found it over crowded and the only seats that we could all sit at here upstairs on the terrace. Normally I'd be too afraid to sit up that far since I'm afraid of heights but it's amazing how a couple of drinks can give you courage. Anyway we all sat around talking and joking and having a grand ol' time and didn't leave until last call. I'd say that William will remember this birthday forever and will always tell my what an amazing time he had.

Day Two Hundred & Thirteen. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Thirteen. - Just Grazin' By. - This is probably the best photo I've taken in a while and by far my favorite at the moment. Anyway, I met up with William for lunch and as we were driving back I made him pull over so I could take a photo of the horses out the car window. I always drive by these fields with these beautiful horses in them and tell myself that I wish I had my camera or if I do have my camera at the time that I'll stop next time. So, instead of putting it off one more time I decided to snap the photo already. I'm really surprised it came out as well as it did too. The colors, and the lighting, are really lovely.

Day Two Hundred & Twelve. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Twelve. - The Epic Build. - William's family came over, Dad, Brother and Sister, to visit and for William to help his brother build his new computer. This photo, to me, looks like a mess right now but after sitting on the carpet for at least four hours it finally started to come together.

PS : Epic is his younger brothers favorite word hence the reason it was used.

Day Two Hundred & Eleven. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Eleven. - Bella's Bath. - When we first got her she was able to fit into this bucket with no problem but now as she's getting bigger, and taller, it's a pretty tight fit. I'll have to figure out some other way to give her a bath without getting scratched up.

Day Two Hundred & Ten. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Ten. - Live Television. - We finally spent the money to buy an antenna, since we can't afford cable right now, and set it up in the attic so that we could have at least a few channels to watch every now and then. Plus, I couldn't miss the Olympics! I love that most of our channels come in Digital and look amazing. Now if I could just get those dang cords covered the T.V. would look even better!

Day Two Hundred & Nine. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Nine. - "I Win" - Let me create the senario for you that lead up to this photo. Okay, so, we are laying on the couch talking and William pretends like he's going to pour water on me and ends up actually doing so. Well of course I had to retaliate and ended up drenching him. So we run around the house pouring water on each other and end up stopping in the kitchen for a breather. By this time I am soaked and defeated, not to mention freezing. And then he starts bragging about how he beat me so I snapped this photo and told him I was totally blogging this.

Day Two Hundred & Eight. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Eight. - It's Shake 'N Bake & I Helped! Remember that commerical from back in the day? Gee, I feel old now. Moving on, William suggested that we have this for dinner one night so I put it on the list. I remember, as a kid, helping my Mom make this when she cooked and loving it. And even now as I'm older it was a lot of fun mixing the chicken in the bag with the coating. It's a meal I'll be sure to make more often.

Day Two Hundred & Seven. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Seven. - Three Months Old. - Happy Birthday, Bella! My adorable little pup is growing up so quickly I can't believe she is three months old already. She has an attitude like her Momma, for sure, and we are planning to take her to Man's Best Friend sometime soon. She loves to chew hands, feet, legs, arms, faces and nothing I've tried has been working. I really wish she would stay this small, without the hyper-ness, forever because her expressions are too cute. I especially love her ears they are too big for her head as of right now. Okay, enough gushing!

Day Two Hundred & Six. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Six. - Meet Mrs. Hugo. - Yes, that is the name of my car. Yes, her and William's car ( Mr. Hugo ) are married. Yes, I know I'm that lame. Anyway, this is my new car! Obviously. Love it!

Day Two Hundred & Five. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Five. - Hatchback Family. - You see that adorable blue car? Yeah, that's mine we bought a new car! Initially we planned to get a lower interest rate considering I was paying 18% just in interest alone. The new car is a 09' Nissan Versa with a lot of cool features such as key less entry and Blue tooth. I did a pretty good job of keeping the payment pretty low as well, only $13 dollars more then I was paying for my 07' Toyota Corolla. I would never actually admit this out loud but car shopping was pretty fun!

Day Two Hundred & Four. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Four. - Veggie Night! - Just some cut up zucchini to go in tonight's dinner. Each week I pick, at least, one night to cook a vegetarian meal.

Tuesday, August 5, 2008

Day Two Hundred & Three. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Three. - New Recipies. - After getting tired of cooking, and eating, the same stuff that we usually eat I decided to print off some new recipies and add them to my collection. I'm hoping one day to have a "cookbook" for just us with all the various foods we like. Gee, I sound like a housewife or something!

Day Two Hundred & Two. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & Two. - Twenty-Four Hour Sickness. - Early this morning William woke up saying that he felt sick to his stomach and barely made it to the restroom in time to puke. Gross, I know but he was feeling awful. I had to work so I made sure he had plenty of fluids and food to get him through the day and then on my way home I picked up some soup and Gatoraid. I felt so bad for him, and that I wasn't home to take care of him, but I'm glad it didn't last more then twenty-four house because I hate seeing him sick.

Day Two Hundred & One. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred & One. - "Eco Friendly" Lawn Mower. - GASP! We don't have a real, gas powered, lawn mower? OH NO! Which is what pretty much everyone says when we tell them that we have a, what they call, a Reel Mower. I think it's adorable, even though I've been told Lawn Mower's aren't suppose to be adorable, and it's much quieter and less toxic. See, there are plenty of reasons to have one of these. Just because the guys on the block will ask you questions doesn't mean you have to be embarrassed, right honey?

Day Two Hundred. - Project 365.

Day Two Hundred. - Bridal Bouquet. - My Mom, Aunt, Cousin and I made a day of it and went wedding shopping. We did find a few things that we are still needing, like my cousin's shoes, but there is still much more to be bought and planned. Since we are on a very tight budget I decided to get fake flowers instead of real ones. We stood around holding them against each other to see what we liked the best and ended up choosing these as my bouquet. The girls will be having smaller bouquet's with purple as their center flower and then little orange ones around it. Plus at three bucks for each you really can't beat that, right?

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Nine. - Project 365.

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Nine. - Puppy Stuff. - I made a stop by PetsMart on the way home to get more Puppy Food and a new toy. I can't bring myself to buy the larger bag which is about $50.00 dollars in the long run it would probably save money, and the hassle of going to the store, but it seems like a lot to be spending at once. Anyway, the toy is me trying to get our Bella to stop chewing on our hands, feet, ankles and pretty much anything but her own toys. Man's Best Friend here she comes!
