365 Recap #6

Day 37/365
[day 37 :: feb 14:: HTC Droid Incredible 2 : photoshop cs2]
Happy Valentine's!  Hope you had a day full of love and chocolate!  This was at a stop sign on my commute home, I just thought the clouds looked cool.

Day 38/365
[day 38 :: feb 15:: HTC Droid Incredible 2 : photoshop cs2]
All right, be prepared.  There are lots of dog pictures this week.  This is Morgan, my parent's dog (or if you want to get technical AND weird, my canine sister, LOL). Yes, the photo is blurry - it's cuz she wouldn't sit still.  For the record, this is one of the nicest dogs ever.  She just loves to give kisses!

Day 39/365
[day 39 :: feb 16:: HTC Droid Incredible 2 : photoshop cs2]
Ooooh yes, lobster again!  If you couldn't tell by the previous family came for a visit!  It was lots of fun!! As we don't have many places to eat here in town, one night we went over to a small town called Thor and ate at Unkies.  And when I say small town, I mean it.  This restaurant basically is the town - and it's packed every weekend!  Btw, yes my lobster was as good as it looks. :)

Day 40/365
[day 40 :: feb 17:: HTC Droid Incredible 2 : photoshop cs2]
Ohmyflippingawd.  Rylee is my parent's other dog.  She is a little westie...and so cute.  This picture was at the end of a long day of playing, so she's totally tuckered out.  BUT, don't let her cute looks fool you, this little girl has enough attitude for a dog 5x her size!

Day 41/365
[day 41 :: feb 18:: Canon Rebel Xsi : photoshop cs2]
Another adorable dog!  Theo! :)  He was out on the front stoop surveying his land when I interrupted him.  Why?  Because I got a new camera lens! It's a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II.  I LOVE it.  Does take some getting used to, but I love the results.  There are more using this new lens below....

Day 42/365
[day 42 :: feb 18:: HTC Droid Incredible 2 : photoshop cs2]
A sun dog! Actually it's a double sundog.  It happened on my way to work, so I actually took the time to pull over and take this photo.  So cool! :)

Day 43/365
[day 43 :: feb 20:: Canon Rebel Xsi : photoshop cs2]
Happy little family!  I took all these using my new lens.  I loved all the photos and couldn't decide which one to use, so I just posted them all.  So yea, this is my little family...and happy we are!

Day 44/365
[day 44 :: feb 21:: Canon Rebel Xsi : photoshop cs2]
The start of the killer storm!  We did get quite a bit of snow, but per usual it was a bit over hyped   Meh, whatever. Brian still got a snow day...I did not. 

Day 45/365
[day 45 :: feb 22:: HTC droid incredible 2 :: pixlr express]
Just a lazy friday night with wine and movies.

Day 46/365
[day 46 :: feb 23:: Canon Rebel Xsi :: photoshop cs2]
New lens again, gah.  I'm loving it so much.  I actually planned this photo out!  I had this idea with a dark matte lip in a black & white/sepia tone.  Anyway, I like the result.


All caught up on my photos! Have a good rest of your weekend - I'm off to tackle some laundry. :)
xo, kass

365 Recap #5

Here's the thing...I'm WAY behind on posting. I know - I've just been swamped at...well life.  However, I actually only missed my photo one day this whole time. I wish I wouldn't have, but oh well.  Since it's been so long since my last recap, I'm going to break it into two posts.  Enjoy :)

Day 29/365
[day 29 :: feb 6 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: photoshop cs2]
I can't even remember this day...but I know I was commuting to work! :P

Day 30/365
[day 30 :: feb 7:: HTC droid incredible 2 :: photoshop cs2]
I had myself a little late night snack...a cheese quesadilla and a hot toddy.  Oooo, now I remember - this was the week of my man voice!  Seriously, I got this stupid insane cold and, along with it, a husky, deep voice. Ha!

Day 31/365
[day 31 :: feb 8:: HTC droid incredible 2 :: photoshop cs2]
Yea...I see this a lot.

Day 32/365
[day 32 :: feb 9:: HTC droid incredible 2 :: photoshop cs2]
I have this crazy deadline at work and I went in on this Saturday to try to get more stuff done.  On a whim Brian decide to come up with me (for those of you who don't know my job is in a town an hour away) and get some school work down at a local coffee shop.  Well, this joint has the best grilled cheese and tomato basil soup ever.  Ever.  If you find yourself in Algona, go to The Perky Parrot.  Trust me.

Day 33/365
[day 33 :: feb 10:: Canon Rebel Xsi:: photoshop cs2]
Cleaning day!  And it turned out to be kind of rainy weather wise.  Okay not kinda...our neighbour's backyard had a pond in it by evening time.  Then the next day I could have gone ice skating on it...but I didn't. Lol.

Day 34/365 - sort of...
[day 34 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: photoshop cs2]
Confession time, this photo is actually from a few days later.  This is the day I forgot to take a photo - I took the one you are looking at on the 13th...Theo lusting over our Valentine's dinner.  So, yea...I missed a day, but I still wanted to give you something new to look at. :P

Day 35/365
[day 35 :: feb 12:: Canon Rebel Xsi:: photoshop cs2]
Shoes.  I started training again...and signed up for The Color Run in Des Moines this summer.  Yikes!  Wish me luck!!

Day 36/365
[day 36 :: feb 13:: Canon Rebel Xsi:: photoshop cs2]
Our dinner.  It was fantastic by the way.  Brian and I celebrated Valentines a night early, because my family was coming into town.  We had bought some lobster tails from trader joe's so we steamed them.  So yummy!  Oh, and Brian officially declared me as not picky.  Not just because of the lobster, but just in generally.  My family would describe me as the pickiest eater ever growing up, but Brian has gotten me to try so many things - and I'm glad for it.  Seriously, I would never have even looked at a lobster before.

Look for another recap later this week.

365 Recap #4

Hey all!  It's been a little longer than I'd prefer BUT I have been keeping up with my photo-a-day.  On my phone, of course, but still.  The documentin' is going great! :)  I'm going to try to aim for 2 pictures on my Canon each week, yea...that seems doable. 

Day 19/376
[day 19 :: jan 27 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: pixlr xpress]

Day 20/365
[day 20 :: jan 28 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: pixlr xpress]
There were a couple of days where it was cra-zy foggy, so on my commute I stopped and took this.  I even got out of my car. I know, you are shocked by my dedication.

Day 21/365
[day 21 :: jan 39 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: pixlr xpress]
My bedside water glass, ha!  Okay, I know it's totally a silly (ie. stupid) picture, but it actually turned out kinda pretty.  Does anyone else love using mason jars as drinking glasses?

Day 22/365
[day 22 :: jan 30 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: pixlr xpress]
Someone take me to Ireland.  Please?

Day 25/365
[day 25 :: feb 2 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: pixlr xpress]
I like sushi, especially sushi with eel and avocado.  YUM.  After enjoying some saki along with the sushi, we took in a show and some night life down in Des Moines.  It was lots of fun!

I warned you!  Again, don't care 'cuz he's so damn cute. 

Day 28/365
[day 28 :: feb 5 :: HTC droid incredible 2 :: pixlr xpress]
You can see BOTH of our stoplights in this photo.  Are you impressed? :)


Sorry for the belated update, hopefully I'll be more prompt this week, but no promises as I'm the queen of procrastination.

xo, Kassie
