Project 365 - Week 7 & 8

So this is harder than I thought it would be. Not only remembering to take photos but I seem to never have my camera with me. It is more like a iPhone photo shoot than anything else. I am down to 365-7... 7 missing days! An entire week! I think I may go look on J's phone and iPad since I know I have some more photos. 

Week 7
February 10
We FaceTimed with Madison and Ryan today and I think I might have a photo someplace, at least a screenshot of our chatting but nothing on my camera unfortunately. 365-5 and counting... 

February 11
Some days, I get breakfast almost in bed. It makes my day. Really. Without asking, just because he cooks for me which is the sweetest.

February 12
Taxes. Need I say more? I am covered in receipts.

February 13
I came home from work to these beauties. Early Valentine's roses. Love, love, love! J sure is on a roll this week!

February 14
Friday night date night and Valentine's Day all in one! Our friends Mary & Steve joined us for dinner at Red. Super fancy... a little too fancy for me actually but still wonderful. I don't usually "win" with my food choice but tonight I did!

February 15
I found out that the Botanical Gardens here does a butterfly release in the afternoons downtown AND they were having an orchid exhibit. So we hit the road and soaked up some warmth in the greenhouse. We saw tons of beautiful flowers and a butterfly that found my hand for a resting spot!

February 16
I'm lucky I like snow. Really lucky since this winter especially seems like it is NEVER. GOING. TO. END. How many more days until spring??  

Week 8
February 17
I'm running the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in April with my Dad and sister. Well, that is the plan anyway as I have done zero training. So I hit the gym today to try and get some miles on these legs. It was rough... and mostly walking. 

February 18
365-6... boo!!! 

February 19
This little Valentine came in the mail today. I love it. I miss her too much!

February 20
I ordered Ceviche for dinner. Yes, me. That's right... I don't even know who I am either. So odd but it was delicious. Have to be adventurous sometimes I guess! 

February 21
Astronaut Don Thomas was at NASA today. I was supposed to be going to his lecture but I was caught in meetings and couldn't make it. A coworker of mine did happen to surprise me and pick up his signed book for me. Gotta love all us space nuts!

February 22
It is Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week so we headed out with our friends A&M to Chop. Dinner was good... but certainly glad we had the discounted menu. Way overpriced if it was a regular day. Somehow we ended up at the new Horseshoe Casino afterwards where the girls sat down at the penny slots and won a little money... not as much as the $700 the guy won that sat down after we got up but what can you do?

February 23
365-7. Ridiculous!!

Project 365 - Week 5 & 6

Where does the time go? I am working a lot. Both my job and helping J get the practice going and there seems to never be enough time for everything. My "To Do" list is endless. I honestly don't know how women with kids even get showered, I can barely get groceries and the laundry done. Here's to two more weeks completed and into February we go! 

Week 5
January 27
Our little kitty Hailey has been super sweet recently. Seems like in her advancing age (13!) she is just getting cuter and cuter. We were chasing the string here on a Monday evening while J was making dinner.

January 28
On the way to get my hair done I saw the fattest deer I've ever seen. Looks like she knows that this winter is going to be a long one. 

January 29
A perfectly clear day. The first completely sun filled day in Cleveland in 124 days. Wow.

January 30
This is the recliner gift I gave J back in June for completing his fellowship. Ever since Hailey has avoided it... until today. It was cold and we put this nice, warm, fleece blanket down. The next thing you know there is a sleep princess kitty right in the middle. I think she has a new spot. 

January 31
And we're off! Headed to Maryland to visit Steve and do some skiing. I am not 100% thrilled, I'd rather be going to the spa or laying in the sun someplace but J loves it, so I'll try my best. 

February 1
Group selfie on the slopes! It was the warmest day I've ever skied with a high of 48 degrees!

February 2
We were back home just in time for the Super Bowl, sporting our Broncos jerseys and rooting on my favorite player Peyton Manning. Just wish it had turned out different for him.

Week 6
February 3 
Another missed day. We went out to eat at Don Ramon's tonight and I had a telecon for the sorority I volunteer with... just missed a change to take a photo. 365-4. 

February 4
It is freezing again today. Perfect day to snuggle in for grilled cheese and chicken tortilla soup. 

February 5
I'm seeing a theme of food here... I made Giada's Brussels sprout recipe but with pancetta instead of prosciutto and it was fantastic! Even a nice little fire in the background. Shh! J didn't know I snapped this quick shot. Hehehe

February 6
Every once in a while I get some visitors right outside my office window. They were actually looking at me for a while before I moved to get the camera and just like that they ran off.

February 7
Ah, sunshine. I miss you. This was a really pretty sunset in Maryland on our second trip skiing this winter. 

February 8
Back in blue, slopes that is. I made it through all the blue slopes and am getting better and better skiing, much to the delight of my husband who has skiing fever. I blame the Olympics that and the record snowfall we are having this season.

February 9
After a long weekend skiing (nearly 7 hours!!) I think I deserve some amazing Italian food. We stopped at 3 Palms Pizzeria in Hudson and enjoyed their Sunday gravy, meatballs, pasta and of course a cannoli to top it off!
