February: Days- 24-27. Almost Done. (yay!)

I'm just telling you now. I am never signing up to do a photo-a-day thing again. I'm too OCD to quit, but I really don't have the time. So, enjoy this while it lasts. :)

Day 24: Inside your bathroom cabinet. 
I need shelves. 

Day 25: Green.
I love this wallet with all my heart. I will cry when it finally dies.

Day 26: Night.
We saw this hippie-van (at night...) on our fun couples retreat the church just had. 
Day 27: Something you ate. 
I need to go grocery shopping.

February: Mel is a slacker.

Whatever. I like posting them a few at a time anyways! That's what I tell myself.

Day 20: Handwriting. See day 14. Cause that's my handwriting!

Day 21: A favorite picture of you. I really do love this one, and not just because you can't see me. It was an accident! 

Day : 22- Where you work. 

Day 23:  Shoes. 
These are them. My every.stinking.day shoes. I like 'em though. I'm too cheap to have alot of shoes.

February: Days 17, 18 & 19.

I've been slacking, yes. But I've been sick! So, that means it's okay. Right?

Day 17: Time. This is about the time I woke up on day 17. For the 90th time. I hate not being able to breathe!

Day 18: Something to drink- How about the Airborne Josh has been making me take? Nasty, I tell ya!

Day 19: Something you hate to do.
Well. I may have the cutest lunchbag of them all, but I hate packing lunches! I like saving money though...

February: Day 16- Something New.

I tried a new hairdo today for "something new" 

I got this hairstyle from The Small Things Blog. Uhm.... By the way, I love that blog. 

Because it makes me happy.

I like this part of our house. It's cute.

Table & Chairs- Wedding hand-me-downs.
Placemats- Wedding gifts.
Tablecloth -Wedding gift.
Flowers and Vases- Wedding decor.
Driftwood platter- Thrifted.
Bird S&P shakers- Gifted. (From Kayla & her sister)

It's not over the top, I know. But I like it. :)

For those of you that grabbed my button, THANK YOU. And for those of you that haven't... what are you waiting for? :) 

I jest.

But anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I have re-sized it so it doesn't make your blogs funky. So take it again, if you would like!

I Will Joy

February: Day 15- Phone

I have a really junky cell phone. 

Josh also has a really junky cell phone.

So how about I just show you a picture of a really cute phone I found online? It reminds me of Cruella Deville though, because she had a similar phone in 101 Dalmations. Remember?

February: Day 14- Heart

This is my Valentine to Josh.

This note will be on the door when he gets home from work, then 101 things I love him for will be scattered in a path leading to our pizza and movie night. :)

I am so excited!

And I also made these. Just for fun. And they are yummy, let me tell ya!

This morning Josh surprised me with a candle-lit breakfast! How sweet is he?! Complete with cinnamon rolls and sausage. Yummy. Great way to start a day, if you ask me. 

Happy Valentines Day! I gotta say, this is by far the best one I have ever had!

February: Day 12- Blue

I just love my blue Kitchenaid. It's probably my favorite kitchen item!

February: Day Twelve- My Closet.

Today I was like "Why did I say I would do this challenge again?" Pretty sure nobody really wants everyone to see their closets! Oh well.

Here's my side of the closet. :)

A Giveaway!

I'm having a giveaway for a custom necklace! 

I would appreciate very much if you would spread the word! Plus, that will get you in the drawing! :)
(See my Facebook page for all the details!)

February: Day Ten- Self Portrait.

I know. It's really quite striking how much it resembles me.

Except I'm not Asian. But anyways. I didn't want to take a picture of me... So here you go. :)

February: Day Nine- Front Door.

In the words of Stacy London from "What not to Wear'

"Shut the front door!"
I know I'm late. I wasn't home at ALL during daylight hours. I hate days like that!

February: Day Seven- Sun

Josh is my sunshine. My only sunshine. He makes me happy, when skies are grey. :)

February: Day Six- Dinner

I kinda threw this together hoping it would taste good, and it did. Always a plus. :)

I give you, Bacon/Onion Mini-Burgers.

My Prodigal Ring Has Returned.

Isn't it just beautiful!? I called the store today to see if it was in, and the lady said "Oh. THAT ring. No. It's not in." But then I came home to a ring on the counter with a note from my handsome husband that said "Surprise!" 

Oh, happy day!

It's way shinier in person. :)

February: Day Five- 10:00am.

Well. Technically I was sitting in Sunday School at 10:00am, listening to our awesome "Young Marrieds" teacher, Mr. Thomas. I kinda thought it would be rude to take a picture of him in the middle of his sermon, so I give you 10:18am instead. :)
This my friend, Guin, and I being all matchy-matchy at church. :)

February: Day Four- A Stranger

I don't know his name. But man, did this kid make me laugh when I was in Papua New Guinea. :)

We Have Children!

Well. Kindof

We got two fish last Sunday when our church bus activity was "Goldfish Day"- which is where we give all the kids a goldfish. So fun! 

Anyway. We got two. 

Meet Chuck and Gina.

February Pictures: Day Three


Best day ever. :)

February: Day Two- Words

I suppose it would only make sense to post a picture of some of the most important words you could ever read, right? :) 

Also, I'm typing words. So that's like a double whammy post right there for you!

February: In Pictures!

I saw this on Facebook today, and thought "hey... that could be fun!"

So I'm gonna do it. Care to join me?

Day One: My View Today.

Our wet, rainy, huge backyard. 
I can't wait until springtime/gardentime!
