Here I am again! It's been a few days. Yesterday Traci asked me to update, which I didn't do. Ha! So I am today JUST FOR HER!! =D

I'm sure you all know (since I think my only readers are friends/family who live around here) that it's really freaking cold outside today. How cold? Here's a visual of the thermostat in Brian's car at 8:50 this morning.

Yep, that's a negative sign in front of that 17. Pretty chilly out there. And once you think that -17 is a cold temperature to begin with, you remember that you also have to factor in the wind chill values. So that negative 17 this morning FELT LIKE negative 30. Yep. -30. 

So, since I didn't want to freeze my butt off walking my 4 blocks to class, I asked Brian to give me a ride there. Bless his heart. =) 

Also, my car isn't starting. I'm guessing it's just too cold for the old fart to get going. It's ok. I understand. 

Look at all our snow! Took this with my phone while I waited for Brian inside Beadle Hall after class. So pretty. 

So I have a few photos from last night and I'm not sure which one is my Photo #123. Which one do you guys like best? Please comment or let me know some other way and I'll give it its place. 

Do you like this one:

Possible #123
Or this one:

Possible #123
Tough decision. I love on my nights where I just don't know what to do, I can grab a flashlight or mini light and make something cool like these. The first one was an accident, actually. But once it showed up on the camera screen, Brian said "Cool! You made a 'D' on your shirt!" which wasn't what I was going for, but I do like it. The second I was actually laying on the floor right underneath the light. I cropped myself out, though. =P It looks like Saturn. Or something. 

Gotta love finding some fun stuff in everyday chores!

122/365: Look at all my pink cups!!
My Kool-Aid purchase resulted in lots more cups than I normally have to wash. But I'm not complaining because Kool-Aid is cheap AND delicious! 

On Sunday Brian and I went shopping in Sioux Falls. We both save a ton of money by taking a once-a-week trip to HyVee, rather than a 5+ times a week trip to Sunshine in Madison. Instead of spending around $10 every day for each trip, now we're each spending around $30 once a week. The first trip was a little more spendy, just cuz we stocked up on some meat, but I am way excited about this plan because I am a poor kid. I learned a lot from shopping trips with my dad. Buy what you need on sale and in multiples. If it's not on sale, don't buy it. Ha...Thanks Dad!

121/365: Can't get enough of city lights in motion. =)
Whew! I should be all caught up now. WAIT!! I'm not! 

Yesterday was Tuesday and I didn't get a "Too Close" Tuesday photo up. HERE IT IS!!

I spent a long time yesterday trying to get a close shot of a strawberry. It just wasn't working out for me. So I did this today instead. Hint: It's not a strawberry. Double Hint: I couldn't live without it.

You know the rules! GO!


  1. I'm fairly sure it's a speaker. But I usually am wrong, hahaha.

  2. Headphone.

    I like the one that looks like Saturn!

  3. I would also agree w/the Headphone guess... and I also like the saturn looking picture. again- great pics! Thanks for sharing!!
