I’m stuck on “barn’.

The other day, Benjamin & I went on a really, really, really long walk and saw a house that used to be a barn. However, I didn’t have my camera and we don’t remember where it was.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Here’s some rad stuff from the internet.

As a clown, this animal balloon font app obviously caught my eye. So cute!

Mila’s Daydreams started as a blog featuring pictures of elaborate scenes created around a sleeping infant/toddler, using household objects. The pictures are so whimsical and dreamy and I was sad when she removed them. However, it looks like it was for good reason, because she just announced her book. I’m sure it will be magical and adorable.

Check out this flickr stream, featuring pictures from the 1928 Tour de France.

Do you love Harry Potter? Do you love Mean Girls? Of course you do. If you didn’t, we would not be friends. Actually, you may be some stranger who just wandered upon my blog, in which case, hello, I love Harry Potter & Mean Girls. And I found an awesome tumblr that combines those things.

ON THAT NOTE, as you (and the whole world) know, it’s Harry Potter week.  It is also my 25th birthday week. And the second week of le Tour de France. That last one matters less to me and more to Benjamin, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still watch it and cringe during the wrecks and swoon over Fabian Cancellara. I digress, it’s an important week in my life. Thursday (my birthday!), we’re going to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 1 at 9 p.m. followed by a midnight showing of p.2. I painted my nails for the occasion.

I would be in Ravenclaw, btw.

See you all when I’m old and there is no more Harry Potter. Oh, God, what is left to live for??

JK. I’m still a baby and Harry Potter will never end.

Made it through the “A”s!


Last week we went to Kudzu Antiques, just to browse. We were in the market for a new dresser (which we found at a yard sale!) and a new desk (still looking for one.), but everything at Kudzu is a bit our of our price range, albeit fun to look at.


I don’t know why, but it took me days to take a picture of something asymmetrical and feel good about it. I’m ok with this, I guess.


Benjamin & his teammates have been taking a beginner course at the track.


“Autumn” seemed like a challenge that, like “Asymmetrical” would plague me for days, especially considering it is July. Lucky for me, Hobby Lobby doesn’t waste any time putting out their seasonal decorations.

It took me longer than it should have, but I made it through the “A”s! Tomorrow(ish) I begin on the “B”s.

Until then, a few extras from this week:

Ixie was all about Wimbledon

Typical Afternoon

Quetzal's new favourite place to creep

These "extras" will always be my cats.

I hope you all have a happy & safe holiday weekend!

06.07.11 – Action Shot


Welp, half of my day was spent working on business cards (1 design for me & 1 design for Benjamin) and the other half separating my things into what I need to box up, what I need to have with me and what I need to throw away or give to the thrift store – beginning stage of the moving process. Thus, there wasn’t a lot of action in my day.

I looked to my cats, a constant source of amusement, for some action.

The staring contest went on for awhile, and until, finally, Quetzal pounced.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite ready and my camera wasn’t quite up to the task.

I thought maybe I could try again, but by this point, they had collapsed and refused to look at each other.

I know the challenge is to take a themed picture for 365 days, so we can consider the blurred picture of my cats fighting as my official action picture. But, I’ll also include this picture from a few weeks ago, as it fits the Action theme. And is in focus, mostly.
