This is my photo of the week...for last week. I am behind. Oops!
This photo is of Theno's Dairy. My first job, my second family, and my home away from home.
Anyways, Theno's had closed an my heart has shattered. I love this photo because it really captures how the employees who have poured their hearts felt about the closing. We sat there for quite a long time just remembering the great times.
This morning we were startled awake by the buildings fire alarm.
Sweet Nelson and I instantly made eye contact and he was terrified. I yelled at Dan to grab him while I ran and got his cat carrier upstairs. Eventually we made it down and out of the building where we sat for about 15 minutes until it was good to go back in the building. Apparently someone had pulled the fire alarm in the garage. Once we got back in the alarm kept randomly going off for the next two hours. So Nelson ran and hid in my closet and I followed him and sat with him for awhile.
We spent the rest of the afternoon cuddling and enjoying the sounds of silence.
So glad that my first instinct is to rescue this cute guy. Don't know what I would do without him.
The time has finally come that I will be reunited with my all time favorite sunglasses. The original pair I treated like gold for 2 years until they broke one summer on a roller coaster at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. I've been hoarding $5 amazon gift-cards that I get here and there in hopes I would be able to find something fun.
Then today it happened I was looking for Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume and I saw my sunglasses! They were on sale, and with my gift-cards that I had saved up I only had to spend $15 on them. Hooray!
They are even in the color that I originally had them in.
I can already tell that this summer is going to be fantastic.
(Now if only my unpacking process would do the same.)
Here are my January new years resolutions: 1. Read more books. Now that I am out of school I can read the books that I never had time for. My goal is two a month. 2. Get outside more. Simple enough I just need to do it. 3. Eat healthier. More veggies. Less soda and junk. 4. Get active again. I need to find a fun way to stay in shape that wont drive me crazy. 5. Spend less money on small things. Spend more money on big things. (like trips!)
Here is my April progress report: 1. I read one, but its a long one! So it should count as two. 2. Its cold and rainy! I got out on the sunny days. 3. I have been eating waaay less junk, soda is a whole different topic. Luckily Trader Joe's is only 2 blocks away from me now! 4. I have been out walking around way more. There are so many fun things to walk to in my new neighborhood. I love it. 5. I still need to save up for a camera, but moving is expensive. Yikes.
Please ignore my excuses for not getting some of these done :)
Is it summer yet? As much as I love this scarf I am getting tired of needing to wear it.
Okay, lets be honest for a little while. I could make excuses I could blame it on the move, but there is no one to blame for only have 5 photos of the day for 13 days. Worst part is that I have no idea what day I took them on. Oh well can only go up from here!

This wall is right outside my office. PERFECT spot for future photoshoots.

I made this photo as big as possible so you could see what awesomeness is just a block from my work. Yup, that is right a PSYCHIC BARBER. A two for one deal! Will someone please go here and let me tag along.

I go to El Chupacabra on Alki so often that I have almost run out of things to take photos of. Here is a groovy lamp. I love the color! Dom and I can be considered "regulars" now. They know exactly what we order when we walk in.

We finally got all of our stuff moved in and I received a call that there was a vintage formica table two blocks down hill from us. So instead of being intelligent I decided to walk, and luckily I have a trooper of a boyfriend/roomate and he tagged along with me. Once I decided that the table was the love of my life we realized we had to walk it up hill for 2 extremely long blocks. I am glad Dan was there to provide comic relief for this situation otherwise I would have been a cranky mess. At least it wasn't raining!

Just when you think there are no more photo opportunities at El Chupacabra life gives you one. Please note Dom in the background blocking the wind from popping my bubble.
