50 books in 2009

As you can tell I got quite behind in the a picture a day challenge. When you don't really go anywhere though (besides the usual everyday places) it gets kind of boring. I AM going to partake in the Nest Book Club's 50 books in 2009 Challenge. I can't wait for this challenge to begin. I've got a huge to-be-read pile going and a huge list of books I want to read so hopefully this'll work out.

As of now, the books on my list include:

The Last Lecture
The Lovely Bones
A Walk to Remember
The Other Boleyn Girl
The Host
Don Quixote
The Lucky One
The Shack
Great Expectations
Tales of Beedle the Bard
Marley and Me

I'll also be adding the rest of the Southern Vampire Mysteries, the Outlander Series, and the Time Traveler's Wife to this list for sure.

Days 11 and 12

Well not much happened yesterday. We decided to get out of the house a bit and walked around the new Kohl's for a bit then went to Johnny Brusco's Pizza for lunch, followed by the movies to see Lakeview Terrace but of course, that was the one movie they decided to not play for the day to accommodate an extra showing of another movie. After we got home we watched an episode of 21 Jump Street, a few episodes of Big Bang Theory, and I finished the night off with reading a few chapters of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

As for today's picture, I was doing some more reading of the previously mentioned book and kitty comes walking towards me and goes directly to the empty pizza box sitting next to me from when I ate my lunch and laid on top of it. I love my little fur-face.

Days 6-10 - wow I'm slacking

i know, i know. I should update everyday but I've been trying to get through the Harry Potter series (I'm a first timer) so I can re-read Twilight before the movie comes out. Anyhoo, here's a picture of our cat. Adam actually took this one, but I thought it was cute.

The picture for day 7 is just a grasshopper that was perched on our bathroom window.

The next picture I took because I thought the sky looked cool behind the tree. I love taking pictures of the sky. I took another sky picture for day 9.

Last night was Adam's birthday dinner and cake night. We went out to Johnny Carino's for dinner and afterwards our friends James & Ashley came over for cake and we watched an episode of The Big Bang Theory (one of the gifts Adam got from me). This picture is of James singing happy birthday to Adam sounding like President Bush.

Project 365 Day 2-5

I was without the internet this weekend, hence the lack of pictures. Hubs and I went to Birmingham to visit our parents (his dad had also flown in from Houston for the weekend) and celebrate Adam's birthday with them since we won't be seeing them on his actual birthday (the 11th). I decided for day 2 to take a picture of the little Inukshuk I bought at the beginning of our honeymoon. We saw quite a few of these from souvenirs to an actual formation near Vancouver's Stanley Park.

Saturday we met with our photographer to order our wedding pics and give her the list for the book she's doing for us. That night we got together and watched a pitiful Auburn game, ate dinner, and had my first taste of dirt cake. It was yummy. Adam's mom made this as his birthday cake all the time when he was growing up so I asked if she would do it again.
Sunday we went and ordered a frame for my bouquet (we got my flowers preserved) and then we met up with our 2 best friends for lunch. Turns out they were heading to JCPenney's and Books-A-Million like we were so we went shopping together and JCP was having a grand opening sale and we ended up getting new pillows at buy 1 get 1 for $1. I slept great last night. Sunday's picture has absolutely nothing to do with's just what's left of the fern hanging on our porch lol. As for Monday's picture..our Auburn Flag.

Day 1 of Project 365

So i decided to join fellow Alabama nesties in Project one picture everyday for a year. I love taking pictures so as soon as I read about this, I just HAD to take part.

Photo numero uno is that of the birdfeeder hanging on our porch. I was walking by the door after getting study material out of our office and knew this would be my 1st entry. It needs some editing to sharpen it up but I've been having problems getting the camera to work on the desktop. Maybe I'll work on it some tomorrow or next week.

However, that is all she wrote for this blog as I still have a reading to do for class in the morning.
