July 28

Photobucket

Banana pudding milkshake: 2/5 stars. You might really like it if you love bananas. To me it tasted pretty good at first and then was boring.

July 27

Meh, I'm forgetting about once a week now. This time I remembered, but it was after I had gone to bed and was comfortable and sleepy and I just didn't care enough to get up to take a picture.

Experimenting. We were going to use this and a matching one at our wedding, and then I started to hand-wash one and the paint started peeling (it's technically a candle holder).

Bonus shot: I put my wedding dress on my dress form to take pictures of it.

I thought W might be a challenge but it was easy (see description for July 23). This is the wizard staff Alex made for our wedding out of a big tree branch he found on the side of the road.

July 24

Photobucket

There are plenty of slightly squiggly t-shapes in the Spiderman mask Alex made years ago. See description for July 23. Yes, it's wearing an Indiana Jones hat.

July 23

Photobucket

So...I took pictures Monday-Wednesday, and then I had a blonde moment in which I thought I had already transferred them to my computer and formatted my memory card. So I took make-up shots. Each shot had the shape of the first letter of the name of the day that got deleted.

I finished my hobbit hole painting. It was fun.

Heath toffee milkshake: 4/5 stars. I got it Monday, drank a little, put in the freezer, finished it Friday, put it in the trash, and remembered Saturday that I hadn't taken a picture.

July 20

Photobucket

I was inspired to try painting again and decided on a hobbit hole. I had this board that I painted white many years ago and drew the outline on it.

I started my new job being trained at a tailor shop. I didn't take a picture until I was about to go to bed, so this is a "I just want to go to sleep and don't care what my camera is aimed at" picture of an OttLite.

July 15

Photobucket

My parents drove me back to NC. This is near the SC/NC border.

Bonus shots: it rained while sunny, and we saw a rainbow.

July 14th

Photobucket

My brother came over in the morning, and then my parents and sisters and I went to Matthew Tate and Michaela Costello's wedding.

Bonus shot: centerpiece

Jess and Katie. We were playing Life.

Bonus shot: we also played a long game of Apples to Apples with Laura. I tied with Katie for first place (we stopped when they had to leave). These are the green cards I won.

This guy was in the garage, deceased. RIP. I noticed it when my mom took me shopping. Then my friends Jessica and Katie came over and we watched movies and hung out.

July 11

Photobucket

Another shot of a church out the car window. My sweet husband drove me to South Carolina to meet my dad and Laura halfway between our house and theirs so I could go to a friend's wedding that Saturday. My aunt came over for dinner that night.

July 10

Photobucket

A very close up shot of a dress I made to wear to a friend's wedding. It's black, not purple.

Bonus shot: strawberry cheesecake milkshake. I give it 4/5 stars. These milkshake shots of me are real attractive, I know.*

Oliphant. I rescued it out of Alex's box of stuff to get rid of. O:-)

I seem to have missed it again. :-(

I started reading "A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning."

Bonus shot: weeds

I was experimenting with dramatic lighting.

Dinner. I posted the peanut sauce recipe I created on my cooking blog.

July 3

Photobucket

I made known my new goal of trying all 40+ milkshake flavors at Cookout and someone suggested I take a picture of myself with each one. So I started. This is chocolate chip cheesecake. I give it 3/5 stars. There were too many chocolate chips, they weren't very good as far as chocolate chips go, and there wasn't enough cheesecake flavor.

We had a coupon for a restaurant that turned out to be pretty lame, but it had these cool fish swimming around in a tank.

Photobucket

It stormed.
