We had one incredibly busy week, it seemed. I feel like it lasted longer than a week, just because we did a lot of stuff and were constantly going somewhere.
Ready for some photos?
On Monday I actually didn't get a shot ALL DAY. I know, I know....But I was traveling all day and was just SUPER worn out by the end of the day. HOWEVER...As I was lying in bed that night knowing I failed the project for the day, I knew what my photo WOULD HAVE been. So I made sure to get it and just throw it in where it should go. Here it is:
|94/365: NEW LENS!! Brian got this 50-200mm for me as a Christmas gift. He is definitely the best and knows the way to my heart. Haha! I was (and still am) super excited about it.|
On Tuesday afternoon we drove around the area and Brian and I had some good conversations. I love how we always can go weeks or months without seeing each other and then meet up again and can't shut up. Haha...We drove up to Signal Hill because the skies were very clear and we could see the mountains.
|Love this one. Thanks, new lens. =)|
|Los Angeles is way back there.|
|95/365: I enjoyed this view a lot. Can you believe that green grass in January?!|
|Our reason for the trip. Worth it. =)|
|Grabbed this one from the car window.|
|We had lunch at a Hawaiian BBQ restaurant. Brian ordered this for me...I put my trust in him to choose something I would like...And he most definitely succeeded! I couldn't finish it, though...of course.|
And I got this chocolate chip fudge cup. Mmmm!
|96/365: SO PERFECT! If you use your imagination and open your mind, it looks like she's putting ripples into the sky.|
|So nice. Brian was continuously telling me to shoot the sailboat. So I did. =)|
|Lots of surfers at sunset. This one was my favorite.|
|97/365: Cutest family ever? I believe so! Look at that coordination!!|
|Giant gummy bear sucker. (I did not buy this, sadly)|
|112 steps up.|
|And the view from the top. Yeah our legs were DEAD after that ascent, especially after walking all day first.|
We parked next to a Ferrari in a parking garage. WHO PUTS A FERRARI IN A PARKING GARAGE?!
|Crazies. Can you imagine what their other cars look like?|
|98/365: Sunset reflection on the car.|
|99/365: The set.|
|SWEET POOL!! (and view!)|
When we landed in Sioux Falls today, I realized that I sort of missed the snow all week. I do have a soft spot for our winters here in SD (something about bundling up during the day and cuddling at night is just very comforting) so spending a week away, although refreshing and amazing, was a big change.
I'm staying at D&E's house tonight, since the roads/weather are so icky. Hopefully I'll get home tomorrow and then head back up to MY home in Madison later this week. Praying that the weather cooperates for me. I can stand the cold, but I can't handle the ice!
