Post 1000: 270/365
1000 days ago I started this blog. I’ve fallen behind (more and more frequently) but I’m still posting a photo for each day of the year. Maybe I’ll make it to 2,000, maybe not. But for now I’m pretty happy to have made it this far.
And for your viewing pleasure, here’s a visual summary of the last 999 days. Happy scrolling…
The Salvation Army guy kept looking at me like I was crazy.
I love how this bridge glows with a blue light at night.
The weather was PERFECT!
The water fountain in the school where my son has his cub scout meetings (the same elementary school I attended for four years)
Yes, our Christmas decorations are still up.
I absolutely love these leggings.
Something about this reminds me of a David Lynch movie.
7.11 ounces of pure joy.
It’s funny what you don’t see when you are taking a photo until after you get the file downloaded.
Community meeting nights are the perfect nights for junk food.
Second grade art hanging in the hall at my son’s school.
I had such a hard time getting this little guy in focus. This was the best I could do out of about 8 different shots.
I love the smiles.
Chubby little toes.
With windows like this it’s no wonder our energy bills are so high.
The view down the center of one of the racks of baby girl clothes.
My cake was delicious!
I find this both wonderful and extremely distracting when driving into Philly.
I love how large the images were behind him.
Screen shot of one of the many videos I took.
I kind of liked the contrast between the stark white at the top and the gooey muck at the bottom.
Is there really this big of a demand for this stuff?
On our way to the playground.
All of the trophies were made out of Duplos.
The tutu has swallowed her legs!
I’m not sure I would call them “gourmet” but they are pretty darn delicious.
We finally got some snow last night. Not much, but enough to require scraping the windshield and blasting the defrost to help it melt faster.
Doesn’t everyone wear their poofy dresses and rainbow leggings to the playground?
I love the juxtaposition of natural and man made elements.
This is only about 1/5 of the entire wall – all covered in hand prints.
The “cake” was a big hit. Rice Krispie Treats stacked to look like a game of Minecraft.
I still haven’t put away the silverware we used at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
My little girl walking to “school” (daycare) all decked out in hearts and carrying her new purse.
It’s amazing how greasy it looks.
I love the scratch off cards from eat.sleep.knit.com! (especially when I win some Malabrigo!)
All prepped and ready for her sleepytime medicine.
I love those toddler thighs!
Shiny high tops
I love all of the lines in this photo – from the bridge in the background, the boardwalk railing and shadows.
I love the old 1970s fonts
I love this place
On top of the world.
Bright yellow ceiling and curved light fixtures at the Lego Store.
I wish I could have seen the full color version!
I absolutely love the views down these orchard rows.
I’m loving this project so far!
Unfortunately they were all at the very bottom of the container or in back in this photo so you can’t really see them.
Single lane covered bridge on the way from my in-laws to my house.
So strange to be using my headlights at 5:20 p.m.
She held Minnie’s hand all the way to daycare.
I don’t know why, but it makes me so happy that my daughter likes these toys (Calico Critters) – they are adorable.
Almost nobody on the road.
Cool? Or creepy?
I love the curved stairs at the bottom landing.
My son’s remote control car crashed into me second after I took this photo. It, and I, survived.
A new fashion trend?
I’ve been in bed so much this weekend my back hurts from lying down so much.
The cars behind me probably wouldn’t be happy to know my extremely slow speed was because I was taking this photo. Next time I’ll keep both hands on the wheel.
Luckily I actually like most of these songs.
The woman in white.
He’s probably thinking, “I wish she would get that camera out of my face.”
I’m so happy they opened a second location and it’s near my house!
The view on the way back down. That tiny speck along the path is my son way up ahead of us.
I love this.
Yes, it was delicious.
I love the gray wig / backpack combo.
I’m not sure if this is a really great idea, or a really crazy idea.
Our weekly shopping trip to Target.
Almost 3/4 of the way through book four.
Tastykake display at my local Wawa.
I love the natural light in this photo.
I love finding faces in ordinary things.
Somehow my son always seems to end up buying Park Place and winning the game.
Looking down into my hydrangea plant in the back yard. I probably should pull those leaves out… I doubt I will, though (said the lazy gardener)
My bedside table and view out the window.
Waiting at the doctor’s office for her two year checkup.
I have a thing for reflection photos. I seem to take a lot of them.
My son always chooses the mystery flavor so I grabbed one for him today.
This photo is full of joy for me.
Under the table.
This was the only thing in the station that wasn’t sparkling clean and shiny.
My son achieved the new “Boat Float” record at Hagley Museum’s Invention Convention – 305 marbles (94 more than the previous record of 211!)
I see this truck all over town and it always makes me smile.
Trying on her big brother’s boots.
Waiting for the right zipper (those are two options hanging around the top.

Another truck photo…
Yep. I did that.
I love the bright green.
I made her stand there while I took photo after photo trying to get the dandelion in focus. This was the only one that worked.

This was a lucky shot since the heart shape disappeared moments later.
It was a wild and crazy night at our house.
Eating lunch at the park today.
She had some trouble carrying this today since it was kind of windy and she’s never held an umbrella before.
toyota showroom – oil change/maintenance
Best gift ever.
This photo makes me want to have another piece.
I used http://www.gasbuddy.com
to find out if any local gas stations were selling their mid-grade octane for $3.65. Luckily one was so I made a lunchtime trip in order to get this photo.
This building is as great on the inside as it is on the outside.
They were yummy.
Is this pancake cannibalism?
That’s my girl!
You can sort of see me, right?
Is that a camera in the square next to the words “Free Air”? Why would they need a camera on the air pump?

Everyone needs a plastic bull head, right?
Lunch at Subway.
It’s a potato, it’s a turkey, it’s a po-turkey!

I love looking through the base of our new living room lamps.

I love the light in our bathroom.

Do you say “s’more ingredients?” or “s’mores ingredients?” I’ve always wondered if the singular of s’mores is s’more.
