A few posts ago, I decided I would take a picture a day for a year. I started it on August 1st and figured it might be fun to show pictures from my third year of marriage. So, here it is, month one: August 2011.
M & I celebrated our second anniversary on Day One. Since we spent a weekend away, we didn’t go out to eat, but did go get some ice cream.
On Day Two, I went to the first Morton High School marching band rehearsal with my parents. Helen has a solo in the show.
The Chiefs played game two of an eight-game homestand on Day Three. I worked this game and the next five.
Day Four fell on a Thursday. My favorite thing in the paper on Thursdays is the restaurant review.
Before I worked the Chiefs game on Day Five, I swam for a bit. Really though I swam basically everyday.
Day Six was Lucille Ball’s 100th birthday! Google celebrated with this awesome homepage that showed Lucy clips. I Love Lucy!
I worked the Chiefs game on Day Seven. There was basically nobody in my section, so I actually got to enjoy and pay attention to the game. Afterwards, M & I went to Fridays with our friend Joe for a cool drink.
I helped mom decorate her classroom on Day Eight. It was hard to believe it was already almost time to go back to school (for her, not me, of course).
The Help came out later this week and I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie. I got through most of it on Day Nine.
Mom and I went to Deer Creek to see an apartment on Day Ten. I ended up signing a security deposit right there without having M see the place.
Mom and I went to see The Help on Day Eleven. It was the first movie we’d seen together since Miracle.
Dad & I headed out to Kansas on Day Twelve. As we were packing up the truck at 6 a.m., Stormy & Alegra decided they wanted to come with. It was a typical Dad-Hannah trip, we drove through a storm.
We took Mama out for a drive on Day Thirteen. We drove out to her old farm and visited the cemetery.
Day Fourteen was the Lesovsky family reunion. My dad’s cousin Verlene and Charles Guy were our entertainment. I got to be in the official minutes as the youngest in attendance!
We drove home on Day Fifteen. We drove through stormy weather for most of the trip [typical].
I have bookmarked many recipes over the past few years. On Day Sixteen, I pinned most of them so they would be easy to find.
Day Seventeen was M & my six-year anniversary of knowing one another. I happened to be working, so I thought it’d be cute to take a picture of us in our work shirts.
I worked again on Day Eighteen. The Chiefs won in the bottom of the ninth, which are always the best wins (plus, I get more $$ for having to work longer).
I spent a lot of Day Nineteen watching 30 Rock. I had always wanted to watch it, but wanted to start at the beginning, so I did just that using Netflix.
M & I went to run some errands on Day Twenty. We ended up going for a drive to Dunlap and Chillicothe and decided we wanted to find the Jubilee Cafe. We didn’t end up finding it.
We went and got ice cream late on Day Twenty-One. I actually didn’t get an M&M twister!
M had Day Twenty-Two off, so we went out to lunch. This time we did find Jubilee Cafe.
I started a painting project on Day Twenty-Three. I painted vases for the bathroom in my new apartment.
I finished this project, also for the new bathroom, on Day Twenty-Four. These match my hand towel set and shower curtain.
I invented my tostada quesadilla on Day Twenty-Five.
I worked the Chiefs game on Day Twenty-Six. The Morton Junior High band played before the game and then the National Anthem.
Dad had plans to trade in the purple Taurus on Day Twenty-Seven, so we took lots of pictures with it. This was my first car before Reid and Helen both had it. He didn’t end up trading it in yet.
Dad grilled pork chops on Day Twenty-Eight. The grill was making cool sparks.
I made homemade chicken pot pie on Day Twenty-Nine. This was the first time I attempted a pie crust. It ended up turning out great!
Helen got asked to Homecoming on Day Thirty. Her friend boy played her a song on the ukelele. I knew it was going to happen, I just didn’t know it’d be in the front yard.
We got everything ready to move on Day Thirty-One. Alegra thought she was going to come with us.
