Day 28: Money

This jar of coins sits in my closet.
Any time I have loose change I drop it in my money jar!
One day when the jar is full I will bring it into 
the credit union and have them out it for me! 
I think it's a little more that halfway full so I still have
a ways to go!! But The jar itself is already VERY heavy!
Ahhh, the feeling of money!!

Day 27: Something You Ate

This is my candy jar that I got from Honeydukes in
Hogsmeade Village in Florida! It used to be 
filled with delicious sherbert lemons!
But they were all eaten!
So what better to fill it with this time of year
that Starburst jellybeans!! 
The red ones are my favorite!

Day 26: Night

This is usually my view at night...
Laying in bed under all of my warm blankets
while reading a book!! 
I LOVE my bed!!
I'm already dreaming about how wonderful 
it will be to crawl into tonight!!

Day 25: Green

Spring is coming and the flowers are starting to make their
way to the surface!! I love seeing the green making its way through
the boring brown dirt! It makes me so excited for summer and flowers
and sunshine!!

Day 24: Inside Your Bathroom Cabinet

My bathroom cabinet opens in three places so it was kind of hard to get a picture of the whole thing. So you'll have to settle with the just middle section.
Nothing too exciting.... band-aids, face wash, face mask, lotion, vitamins, cold medicine, my retainer case, and my sock bun roller thing!

Day 23: Your Shoes

It's no secret that I LOVE shoes! And that I have many many pairs!
In fact, you saw many of them here.......
Why do I love shoes?
Because they always fit!!
I can always find my size!!
And they come in so many fun colors!

I had all kinds of ideas for this day's picture!
I thought about putting on my light pink heels I brought back from
Italy. Or my cute Steve Madden taupe heels I got from Ross for only $15!
Or my FOUR DOLLAR silver shoes!! Those were a sweet buy!! 

But I went with this:
My feet strapped into the rowing machine at the gym!!
I love that machine!! It makes me want to join a real rowing team!

Day 20: Handwriting

My handwriting on our weekly chore chart.
I've never really loved my handwriting! I wish it was more girly!! 
I am pretty crazy about practicing handwriting too! I could sit
and write the alphabet over and over!

Day 19: Something You Hate To Do

No, I don't hate to smile!! 
This is a postcard reminder from my dentist that I am due for a
check up!! I took a picture of it because I hate, hate, HATE
going to the dentist!! 
When I was younger I used to hide these postcards. I figured if
they were out of sight of my mom, then it would be out of mind!!
I felt way to guilty throwing the postcards away, but that didn't stop me 
from putting them at the bottom of a large stack of papers or
throwing them behind the refrigerator!!

Day 15: Phone

These are the buttons on my phone at work.
That yellow sticky note is covering up the time.
 I have things covering all the clocks in my office.
I just cant handle looking at the time throughout the day.
Time drags by WAY to slowly if I do! I will look at the clock and look again thinking that AT LEAST twenty minutes has gone by but am sorely disappointed to find that its only been five!!

Day 11: Something You Love

How do you pick just one thing you love? I started out with a picture of driving with the windows down. I LOVE to do that!! Especially since it is February!! And then I had a picture of all of my chap stick, lipstick and lip gloss! I can not leave home with out that stuff!! I have small addiction to it and panic if I dont have my lipstick bag with me!!
But then I took this picture and decided it was the winner!! I just love those big brown puppy dog eyes!

Day 9: Front Door

Our front door was absolutely gross before I took this picture!! 
I couldn't stand it so I wiped the top half down with 
Lysol wipes!! When it gets warm enough to hook
the hose back up I need to spray the whole thing down!!

Day 8: Sun

We have had ridiculously awesome weather here in Utah lately!! More like spring than winter!! So far this winter I haven't had to shovel the driveway or even put on my snow tires!! I know that darn groundhog saw his shadow and predicted more cold and snow but I'm holding out hope that he is wrong!!!
Last week Monday and Tuesday were beautiful days! I drove around with my windows down on my lunch break!! I was so excited to take day eights picture on Wednesday.
But of course, the clouds rolled in... and then they decided to stick around for Thursday too!! All those beautiful springlike days and on the one day I needed a picture of the glorious sun it was hidden behind the clouds.
So I cheated....
Yes, I cheated and waited for the sun to come out to take this picture!!

Day 4: A Stanger

I had a hard time with this one!! 
Not for lack of seeing strangers.....
But because I am too chicken to take pictures of them!
I had all kind of opportunities on Saturday....
The nurse at the Instacare...
The interesting fellow at Zupas...
The crafting queen at Michaels...
Or the obnoxious teens at Target.
But I didn't get pictures of any of them!
So instead you are left with this stranger while I was
walking in to church on Sunday!

Day 3: Hands

THANKS to Megan and Miranda for the use of their hands!!!

Book 3 For Real This Time

Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated than she could have dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness.
Evie's only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebellious, mocking, dangerously attractive young man she meets by chance. As Evie's feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is hiding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, ghostly girl—a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.

Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for a lovey dovey book but I really didnt enjoy this story. I mean, I didn't absolutely hate it..... but I don't know if I will read the two other books in the series. I thought about not even finishing it, but I had failed to finish reading my original book three so I kind of felt obligated to finish this one. 
It really wasn't awful, but it was kind of slow. Maybe it was just kind of a set up for the last two books. And I didnt really like the main character very much. She was pretty over dramatic and needy. That's probably very hypocritical of me to say since this story had a lot of similarities to the Twilight series and Bella Swan and you all know how I feel about those books!! 
So here's to hoping that book four is much better than Book 3 attempts one and two!

Day 1: Your View Today

I have spent six years in a basement office.
After all the time I FINALLY have a window! 
It's only half a window.....
But it's my half window!!! 

February Photo A Day Challenge

Remember all the way back in November when I tried to do the 
Instagram Gratitude Challenge? And remember how I failed miserably 
right off the bat?
Well, this month I am going to be better!! I saw this on a few
different blogs and thought I would take part in the challenge! 
This time I am determined to do it! 
I've already taken today's picture 
{if you're my Facebook friend you've already seen it}
and I will be posting it later this evening!
If you decide to do this challenge, let me know and send me
a link to your blog or Instagram page! I would love to
see what you come up with!! 

Book 3 FAIL

I saw this book at Barnes and Noble about two months ago and I drawn in by the cover. Yes, I am one of "those people" that judges a book by its cover! But once I read what the story was about, I was even more eager to read it.
Actually, the teaser info on the inside cover was kind of vague as to what the story really was about, but the premise sounded awesome! A dystopian type world {I have been reading lots of those kinds of books lately}that has been completely covered in water. Kind of a Noah's ark story.... sort of. The people that are left in the world are living horribly on the mainland and everyone is trying to get to this mysterious island called X Isle. Doesn't it sound interesting? Like X Isle should be some kind of great utopia in the midst of all the misery and suffering!
I think I only made it through the first 100 pages before I though, "this is really stupid.... what is this story even about"? I mean, if you are all about 15 year old boys lighting their farts on fire then this is the book for you.
It was boring and stupid and slow and very immature. I had to add it to my Didn't-Even-Finish-Reading list on Goodreads!!
I flipped through the book, reading paragraphs here and there and even toward the end of the book I couldn't tell what the plot line was. As far as I could tell and the end of the story all the boys get off the horrible X Isle and go back to the misery on the mainland. Or maybe they end up staying on the island after they gotten rid of the "bad guy". Either way it is lame!!
 I don't know..... maybe it's because I'm a sucker for happy endings, but I thought it was stupid and pointless! Glad I didn't waste a week of my life reading the whole thing!!
