January 19 - January 25

I actually seem to be keeping up with this right now. Crazy. So, I think the only reason is that I have Lightroom4 on my work laptop and most of my pictures have been taken with my phone, but I guess whatever works. I will say that one of the pictures below was taken with my big girl camera. Can you tell which one?
01.19.12 - Still sick. This was my new best friend and helped me get through the long work day. 

01.20.12 - I love these things. All pointy and what not. Plus they look great with some bush bokeh. : ) 

01.21.12 - New books that I picked up from Half Price Books. The top two are the 3rd and 4th in the series. I ended up having to go to another Half Price Books to find the 1st and 2nd. #1stworldproblems.

01.22.12 - This totally happened. Pink compression sleeves (6 mile long run on this day, for sure needed those), one neon green sock and one striped sock. I was in a hurry to get dressed to go to lunch after our run that I just grabbed whatever socks that I could find(laundry was done, but not put away). After lunch we went for a walk around the neighborhood and I wore shorts and didn't change out of the sleeves or socks. So yeah, that happened.

01.23.12 - I am really loving the Hipstamatic App. 

01.24.12 - Starbucks hot chocolate with a half of a lemon pound cake. My friend Natalie had the other half. I don't know if that pound cake was really good or if I just haven't had real wheat flour in ages. 

01.25.12 - Cold, rainy day in Dallas. Chili for lunch. It was totally great.

Alright! See you soon for more picture-y goodness!!

January 12 - 18th

I am actually posting another grouping of pictures! Crazy times. Anyway, I do want to semi-apologize. I seemed to have rediscovered my hipstamatic app and I might have used it for everyone of these photos. Enjoy.
01.12.12 - Getting ready for a really cold run. These are my favorite running tights that I got for my birthday. The only bad thing is that it has to be REALLY cold to wear them and so I've only gotten to take them for a spin three times since I got them. (PS. Ditz thinks they are hideous)
01.13.12 - Chase. I think he was trying to figure out why I am so weird. 
01.14.12 - Went to my mother-in-laws to watch a movie. She was working when we got there and instead of offering to help, I took pictures. At the time I snapped this one I didn't even notice that the horse had turned around to look at me.
01.15.12 - 5 mile hike with the hubs at our favorite hiking place. It was so nice out that the trail was packed and that kind of sucked, but it was still a good work out.
01.16.12 - One of the windows near my office. I always think that I want to go into this store and then remember that we got one of their catalogs at the office and I can't even afford a throw pillow from here. 
01.17.12 - I buy the vast majority of my books from Half Price Books.  One of the really cool things about buying used books (besides them being way cheaper) is that you find all kinds of "bookmarks" that people left behind.  I've found a couple of plane tickets, movie stubs and other notes. This is the latest one. Apparently the Megan clan rox. 
01.18.12 - Ditz and I both spent the day in bed sick. It was not cool or fun. Plus the dogs were confused as to why we were still home.

So, there we go. Another week of photos!

2012 Photo of the Day

I'd actually considered taking a break from this project. I started in 2009 and have not yet missed a day (however there was one really close call where I lost a memory card and cried, then we found it). I told the hubs in December that I was for sure going to take a break. And then January 1 came. And I took a picture. And then on the 2nd and 3rd. Then I decided it was kind of ingrained in to me at this point. It's a new day, you take a picture. So, I am going to keep it up. Towards the end of last year, I took the majority of the photos with my phone and I thought that made me a failure as a photographer, but this year I decided that I am ok with that.  Cell phone pictures can still tell the story. So without further ado. Here's a look at the first 11 days of 2012.

January 1 - The final Christmas in a long line of Christmas' this year.  That's Chase and our new dog, Hannah.
January 2 - Lunch at Mi Cocina with the hubs. We're reflected in the sugar bowl. Every time I eat at Mi Cocina I remember it's over priced. Maybe once I'll remember before I go. 
January 3 - Lunch for the Razorbacks at my office. I wasn't allowed up front, so no pictures of the coaches and wives.
January 4 - What I am currently reading. I finished 89 books last year and really wanted to make it to an even 90, but the Hate List was just a little too slow in the beginning for me to finish it. However, about half way through I ended up speed reading it. I gave it 4 stars on Good Reads.
January 5 - Family game night with my parents. All I have to say is that this game sucks. I hate it. And the hubs was really good at it. Now he wants to play it a lot.
January 6 - My parents at the Cotton Bowl. Yep, we were there rooting for the Razorbacks. Glad they won otherwise it would've been an awful ride home. 
January 7 - Fro yo from Yogurtland, the best of all fro yo places. I chose vanilla cookie yogurt with nuts, a few chocolate chips and two vanilla wafers. It's toooooooo die for. 
January 8 - One of the dogs toys.  This is Chase's favorite. 
January 9 - Just me. I was trying to take a picture of how good I thought my hair looked that day. Didn't work out so well.
January 10 - Me again.  I took 10 days off from running do to some serious foot pain. I felt like I had an incredible run my first day back (hubs went too) and had zero foot pain, so I am calling that a big time win. Please ignore the hair. 
January 11 - Twenty years from now I'll probably wonder why I liked this picture. Truth be told it was an accident. I didn't even mean to take it, but at the end of the day, I kind of like it.

Anyway, there you have it. The first 11 days. (If I was smarter I would have waited a day and done 12 days, but since who knows if I'll have any time tomorrow, I better not chance it).

Just dropping int to say that yet again, I am not dead! Instead of boring you with tons of pictures in a post, I've put it into a slide show for your amusement.
