July 30 // Noteworthy Blog.

I want to introduce everyone to Matt's new blog,
"Things I Come Across"
It's devoted entirely to sharing the weird and unusual things that Matt happens upon.

I do believe you will like it as much as I do...

July 29 // We're Scary..

But don't judge us.
You're probably a little scary too.

July 28 // For Sale?

This is my beloved '88 Honda Accord.
I've decided to try and sell it....
(we'll see what happens with the economy the way it is)

If you know anyone shopping in the Honda market, feel free to pass my email along:

July 27 // 500 Days of Summer on 365 Days in Photographs

cheesy title?
I couldn't help it.

Great movie.
Next on the list: Away We Go.

July 26 // Bbacher Game Night

We're becoming obsessed with this game.
and contrary to popular belief...
I don't cheat

July 25 // Sick Once Again...

July 2008 : Strep
August 2008: Tonsilitis
October 2008: Strep
May 2009: Strep
June 2009: Tonsilitis
July 2009 (today): Tonsilitis

This is my sick list of the past year.
I woke up this morning with a fever & swollen tonsils AGAIN.

My morning was spent at a new doctor's office (which was way cool by the way); getting blood drawn & other tests taken, in order to figure out why I've been sick 3 times in the last 2 1/2 months (and 6 times in the past year). They came to the conclusion that it's time to get my tonsils out.

July 24 // Showing Off.

It's been a few weeks since I've visited the cousins, so they had lots of new "tricks" to show me when I showed up for dinner tonight.

Oh, and we had "ma-statos" for dinner.
(or otherwise known as, "potatoes", to anyone except Landon.)

July 23 // Date Night, Game Night

A few games of Rummy with ridiculously large playing cards,

Matt Q cheating me out of a very important card (even though I "obviously" had it first & was losing by A LOT),

Kate & I killing it at battle of the sexes Cranium (which was an improvement from the tears I shed at last year's game night.....don't ask),

Me understanding Kate's interpretation of a silent "bridge",

Kate understanding my interpretation of "Monica Lewinsky"

Matt & Matt trying to be "creative cats" with their eyes closed,

all makes for a great night of date night, game night.

July 22 // Ouch.

When I woke up this morning with a stiff neck like I'd never had before, I knew I was being punished for not going to my chiropractor in over 9 months...

I was right.
I found out that I had thrown out my upper back & right shoulder from sleeping on too stiff a pillow (really?? all that from a pillow??).

After being hooked up to wires & machines, & cracked in all sorts of places, I'm finally feeling a little better & in a few days I should be all back to normal!

July 21 // Heat Wave.

Driving a car with no air conditioning has increasingly become more brutal with these 90-100 degree days.

BUT thank God for these cool summer nights --- they will never ever get old.

July 20 // Mini.

Why are pancakes of the mini form so much more appetizing than regular sized ones??

July 19 // Roomies Day 2.

More filming today.
We cranked out another couple of episodes, as well as the promo for the series.

The series will air weekly at starting in a few weeks.

July 18 // Roomies.

My day was spent on the set of "Roomies".
I worked as the on-set photographer and quickly learned the ins and outs of the "movie biz".

A couple of my friends from CSUN have their own production company and are beginning to film this web series that will soon be aired online, as well as Dish Network.

Stay tuned for the web address!

July 17 // Play Date.

It's another Friday with Max and today we went on a play date with my favorite zoo, Ben, Abby, & Emma.

July 16 // Bad Day.

One of those days when everything just seems to go wrong.

But, it was a better night when Katie met me for coffee to catch up on life / listen to me vent / move a few things for my new apartment.

Life is seemingly getting more stressful.

July 15 // Cat Sitting.

Never again.

July 14 // Waiting.

I've been house sitting for the Bbachers this past week
(I'm just now writing about it in case I've got creepsters reading this stuff)
They come home today & I think Captain & I are both a little excited to have some familiar faces in the house again !

July 13 // More Apartment Hunting.

Becky, Britt & I spent a day up at school because Britt is joining me in the fall & needs an apartment!

July 12 // Broken.

This is Matt recovering from ACL surgery.
He's in a lot of pain...but may be exaggerating it a tad here.

July 11 // Thrifting with Nana.

Drove to Santa Clarita.
Picked up my cousin, Logan.
Drove to Lancaster to see the grandparents.
Went thrifting with Nana.
AWESOME thrifting experience.
Bought loads of fun stuff (for SUPER cheap).
Nana got new church shoes
and a compliment on her "bee hive" hairdoo.
Logan (finally) got hiking boots.
except she doesn't plan on hiking in them.
I got some fun apartment furnishings.
We're definitely doing this again.

P.S. Today's my dad's birthday!

July 10 // Double Shift.

I pulled a double babysitting shift today.
...............I'm tired.

Kate & George:

Matt had ACL surgery today.
Keep him in your prayers as he recovers!

July 9 // Opinions? Suggestions??

So last night someone named "Koala" commented on my blog asking if I'm going to continue blogging after my 365 Days are over (which is September 14th by the way).
(btw thanks Koala for bringing this question to my attention)

I realized that date is nearing and it is time I begin thinking about what the future holds for me as a blogger.. ..

I have considered starting a new 365 Days and beginning a "round 2", if you will, describing what life brings in my next year.
But to be honest, I'm not that sure I'm up for it.

I have also considered putting 365 Days to rest and beginning new with a brand new blog, name, address, the whole shebang....but I'm afraid it will be the most boring thing ever.

At this point, I think no matter what, I am going to stop this 365 Days of Photographs and get a new blog address so that there are no more than 365 blog posts here. So that I leave it as a photo album / scrapbook / memory of my 365 days from September 2008 - September 2009.

BUT, I have NO IDEA what to do with the new blog....should I continue with 365 days, and if so, should I add a new "twist" to it...something to spice it up and make it better than round 1...or should I make it a general blog with room to make it whatever I want....or should I start something completely different and fresh?

This is where you, as the blog readers, come in.
Please comment (or inform me another way) letting me know what your suggestion is for my blog future and any new, fresh, ideas you may have for me.
k? easy enough?

THANKS. I really appreciate all of your time reading this ridiculous blog about my really simple and a lot of the time, boring life. It really means a lot. I don't know how you put up with me.

June 8 // Disney Animation.

Matt & I returned to our church's high school group to visit, as well as hear Matt speak to the incoming freshman about what to expect in these coming years.
Matt didn't end up speaking though because the main speaker (the head animator for Disney) had really sweet "first sketch" videos of our favorite Disney movies like Lion King and Beauty and the Beast to show. The process of getting the movies to theater quality is incredible!

June 7 // Pool Time.

I've decided it's time I try and get a tan.
Or really, a sunburn in my case.

June 6 // The Back-up Plan.

I recently started babysitting for 6-month-old triplet girls. I more recently found out that they are little baby actresses. They've done a few commercials and soap opera episodes, until now, something a little bit bigger.

Jennifer Lopez is staring in a new romantic comedy called The Back-up Plan & the triplets got cast to play her twins. I was obviously excited when I heard the news, but when they asked me to help with the girls during their day of filming, I got even more excited!
We spent the day in Hollywood filming a couple scenes with the leading actor (I'm not sure who he was--a face you recognize but not sure from what). I didn't get to see Jennifer because she wasn't in the scenes being filmed, but I did see her real life twins as I was walking to my car. They were in a golf cart with who I guess was the nanny, on their way to Jennifer's HUGGGE, 2 story trailer.

It was a pretty cool experience, since I've never been on the set of a movie before, but I'm sure when I see the movie, I'll fall in love with the lead actor and kick myself for not paying more attention to him when I had the chance...

July 5 // Swap Meeting.

We hit up the swap meet this morning.
Unfortunately didn't find any treasures.
But we did have every single possibility of scissor to choose from.

July 4 // Stealing Fireworks.

(if you're maximizing this pic and wondering why it looks like it was raining; we were driving through a drive thru car wash)

It's the Fourth of July.
And per tradition, a fireworks show is a must.
Logan, Matt & I decided we would try our hand at the Lacy Park show this year.
When we got there and saw the massive amount of people with the same idea,
we decided it would be a better idea to steal a peak at the show from across the street in the grassy middle of the center divider.
It turned out to be a great idea.

July 3 // An In N Out Welcome.

A midnight In N Out visit after I picked Logan up from the airport tonight.

She has been in Phoenix at a volleyball tournament all week & was very happy to get off the plane and step into our cool, California weather after spending a week in the hot, Arizona humidity.

July 2 // Dean's List Celebrations.

Kate got on the Dean's List!!!
Mama B took us out for celebratory bacon chocolate souffle (sounds weird, we were skeptical too, but it was DELICIOUS) !!

July 1 // Adventures with Katie.

Adventures started early this morning when my friend Katie helped me trek the dresser 40 miles to my apartment.
Now, I just have to figure out what color to paint it & the blue bookshelf...
Ideas anyone???
The apartment is too monotone with the couches, carpet & walls all being shades of brown....

June 30 // More Moving.

We moved the last of Matt's stuff out of his room today.
He moved into his brother's old room & got a new dresser so I got his old one (pictured) for my apartment!

Today is Hunter's birthday & he's in Honduras doing amazing things.
