Day 29

Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile
This picture was taken at the top of the CN Tower in Toronto.  Mike and I had been dating only a short while and my mom thought I was nuts for going to Canada with three guys.  We had an absolute blast and it's still one of my all time favorite trips!

I was about 2 months shy of my 19th birthday here, I can't believe how young we all were.

Day 25

Day 25 - A picture of your day

Here's us working in the basement again.  The bathroom is getting there!  We have doors now for both bedroom and bathroom.  The electrician will be done Monday.  The plumbers are done, we'll set our own sink (seen in the middle of the room right now) and toilet.   There's our nice new water heater in the background too!  That's my big soaking tub which heats the water so I never have to get out, just to the right of that is the shower.  I took the picture standing in what will be my bedroom closet LOL.

Day 23

Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book

My favorite book is now my library of books since they fit right inside my Nook.  It really is the best thing I've ever received.   I think I read faster now which is impressive since I read a LOT as it is.

Day 22

Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at  *as for day 21 I just flaked out and really even if there are things I regret I don't want to forget any of them*

I like to sing, don't get me wrong but I am NOT good at it.  I know my hubby loves me because he lets me sing in the car when he's with me.

Day 20

Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel

Today I couldn't just post one picture, I just couldn't resist more! 

Kyoto Japan is a place I'd like to see.  A place I'd like to walk in the footsteps of so many people who came before me knowing just as many will come after.

Day 19

Day 19 - A picture and a letter.

A long time ago in a place far far away.... wait that's not quite right.  It does seem like a long time ago though that this happened. 

Mike used to write me letters.  He'd email them or jot down notes for me in books he loaned me.  I never knew when one would show up.  I've come to love this part of him but way at the beginning of our relationship I had no idea that this was a regular thing for him.

So in mid April 2001 I received this letter:

It was written late one night while he sat in a park near his parents' house and froze.  It was also the first time he said I love you to me.  He proposed in a letter even ;)  So today this is my letter AND picture.  I love you honey.  Now and forever and I am so lucky to have found you and to have made it this far together.  I can't wait for the next 41 plus years.

Infinity plus one <3

Day 18

Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity. 

I think this one is hard for me.  I would have said body parts like many of us before now but believe it or not right at my heaviest I FINALLY felt okay with my body, which is part of why I think I'm finally able to work out more, eat better and lose that baby (and then some) weight.

Believe it or not I think at this point my biggest insecurity is my mind.  It's the part of me that tells me I'm not smart enough or organized enough to do this school thing LOOOONG term.  It's the part of me that is afraid of failing so I often don't start things because that's easier.  

Of course I have found ways to over come this.  I KNOW that I'm smart and can do this.  I know that when I do finally decide to do something I don't ever half ass it.  I do it ALL the way.  Just like I clean ALL the things sometimes ;)

Day 17

Ok I admit to skipping yesterday.  Not because I forgot but because I got stumped. 

Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.

I'm going boring and stating the obvious that my school has made an impact on my life recently ;)

Day 14

Day 14 - A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without (or live without).

This is a funny in joke but Mike and I can NOT live without a Jiggly Puff in our vehicle.  It has traveled with us many a places and from car to car.  So I'm counting Jiggly as a someone :D

Trick or Treat!

Halloween is one of my absolute favorite holidays.  I love the decorations and the kids in the neighborhood trick or treating.  We're pretty conservative on candy and sugar for Gabe but this is the one day I just don't care.  He ate way too much candy and had a blast.

It took us awhile to convince him to actually put on the costume for it.  He didn't want to wear pants (men!) But when we did get him into it he was Adorable!

This costume was made by my Grandma about 20 some years ago for one of my cousins for Halloween and I'm thrilled it was saved and passed down.  Everyone in town thought Gabe made a great little skunk, even after the head piece got "too scratchy!"  and had to be taken off.  He filled TWO buckets with candy and thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing.  He's already asking when we can do it again. 

I can't pass up posting this one of Daddy with Gabe too.

Now it's on to Christmas, where my poor kid gets shafted because his birthday is December 23.  I'm voting to skip the whole thing and have Halloween again.  Christmas just stresses me out anyhow, lol.  He's already asking for a truck cake!

Day 13

Day 13 - A picture of your favorite band or artist

It was a toss up between BNL and Reel Big Fish two of my faves but I'm going old school! 

Reel Big Fish, I have a great memory of going to this concert with Mike, Davey Boom, Peto.  It really was an awesome thing.  We've seen them several times since then.   And I am aware this is an album cover and not really the whole band but I like it anyhow ;)
