Day 190.

Alright, Week 27! This seems so long ago... but let me tell you about it.

Day 186: another Monday night dinner with Dee Dee... Jimmy John's this time. Day 187: our Christmas tree. Day 188: my first shot at making risotto... I made this recipe, it was pretty good! Day 189: this was another of those "I'm in bed and haven't taken a picture today" pictures, so I took it of my socks. Day 190: my first official date with this boy that's newly in my life (more to come on that later, I'm sure.) Day 191: the lamest fortune known to man. Fail on your part, Panda Express. Day 192: not my favorite picture of this project, but this is a rose that was given to Dee Dee on her first day and it has been living at our house.

On to the next week...

Day 183.

It has been waaaay too long. I know. I don't really know where time has gone this past month. I can't really believe Christmas has already come and gone and 2013 is about to begin. Despite my lack of posting, I actually have continued with my photo project. I'm going to try to get all caught up today. So here it is...

With the completion of this week, I officially was half way through this project. Half way... craziness. This week began a new month and a new color! And I was excited for the change. December is red in honor of Christmas... Anyway, let's take a look at Week 26:

Day 179: Monday night dinners with my friend Dee Dee... we often frequent Chipotle. Day 180: this was one of those "I'm in bed and I just remembered I forgot to take my picture for the day" pictures... so it's the floor in my bedroom. Day 181: ice cream at Baskin Robbins. Day 182: so, my church practices music at a different church on Thursday nights and that church was setting up for this dinner they were having with themed tables... This table was squirrel themed. SO weird. Day 183: my favorite boots. Day 184: the beginning of a new color! and the pretty garland and berries that Kathryn put around our front door. Day 185: Settlers of Catan with some of my favorite friends.

365 Photo Challenge: Week 25.

Day 173.

*Insert slacker speech here with lots of excuses of how busy I've been and how I really need to be more consistent in my blogging.*

Here we have last week's photo challenge pictures. Despite that fact that I am almost a week late in posting them, I did actually take these pictures on the days they were supposed to be taken. Anyway, let me tell you about them...

Day 172: Chex Mix made for our Thanksgiving. Day 173: the lamp in our kitchen... it used to be my grandma's... it's pretty special. Day 174: leftover pumpkin bars. Day 175: a family tradition, to have nut cups at Thanksgiving meal. Day 176: my cousin Elsy's cute little feet. Day 177: a wreath that I made that lives on my parent's front door. Day 178: hot cocoa cookies (go here if you'd like the recipe... it's a bit high maintenance but they were tasty.)

One more week of brown! (And actually, when I'm writing this, it's December 1st, which mean brown is over for me! Hooray! On to red!)

Day 167.

Told you I'd be back soon... Another week of cocoa/brown is complete. Brown has been interesting... but I'm ready for a new color. Only two more weeks.

Day 167: cupcakes I made for my co-worker's birthday. Day 168: me... and my brown hair. Day 169: an impromptu mantel piece that happened when we were cleaning up our house the other night and needed to do something with a random pallet that was sitting in our dining room. Day 170: our dining room table. Day 171: my dresser.

Day 159.
There really is no excuse for not posting this last week. I actually got it all ready, uploaded the pictures, and did everything but write it out last Sunday, and never got around to finishing it up. So these are actually pictures from two week's ago. Last week's pictures will be coming at you soon.   Day 158: my roommate Paige and a random box of Cocoa Drops. Day 159: my favorite tree at my parent's house... although I'm pretty sure it's dying. Day 160: a cold sak that I brought my lunch in one day. Day 161: my purse. Day 162: the light at the restaurant for V and Jon's rehearsal dinner. Day 163: Jon's drink at the wedding. Day 164: a big tree at a park in Houston.   It was a good week.

Operation Bridesmaid: Complete (kind of).

(Kelsy, the matron of honor, and I. You can't see the dress, but whatev.)

Remember a few months ago when I blogged about how I needed to lose some weight because I was in a wedding and needed to fit into a dress? Welp... the wedding was yesterday... so Operation Bridesmaid is officially over! I did lose some weight, although not as much as I had hoped. I had to have the dress altered a bit. But at the end of the day, I fit in to the dress...

The wedding, which is the more important thing that happened yesterday, was amazing. My two best friends from college, Valeria and Jonathan, are now married and that's one of the coolest things ever. Everything was beautiful and the reception was one of the best times I've had in a long time. A great day.

Just thought I'd give you an update! The effort to lose weight will continue, just because I fit into the darn dress doesn't mean I don't still have work today... Just thought I'd let you know thanks to Weight Watchers and my aunt Susie for altering my dress, yesterday turned out just fine.

(it was dark so this is a bit pixely, but here we are! V, Jon, and I.)

(The oldest picture I can find of us. Our freshman year of college...)

(Valeria and I. I love her a lot.)
