Whales!


February 28
Tomato soup and whales...yum!

"I won't sleep"


February 27
Tonight was a really good night, with good music, good people, and good fun. A few people played a house show tonight in Lincoln, it was really awesome. Here's a picture of Collin...

Happy Birthday Alyssa!


February 26
I headed home this weekend and went out to eat with Curry's to celebrate Alyssa's 12th birthday. Fried Ice Cream and El Matador is always the way to go!

Capitols


February 25
Here's the Capitol. I'm planning on recreating this exact same picture in the spring or fall when those two trees are much prettier. But this works for today. Did you know, that no building in Lincoln, Nebraska can be taller than the capital? Isn't that lame? That's why we have no really tall cool buildings. We need to work on getting that rule changed.

Color-ific


February 24
Ellen Reber, this one is for you. :) Tonight, I ran out of gas with my friend Ellen...in the parking garage...while going up! We were tough women and pushed it downhill into a parking spot and handled it all on our own. But she has been wanting me to take this picture for awhile, so tonight, I finally did it! Here's more proof of my OCD and how I color code things. Each one of these colors represents a different thing in my planner. I seriously don't know how I would live without that thing!


Opposites


February 23
I bought some bananas a few days ago, and they already went bad. So tonight while I was at Wal-Mart, I picked up some more. I went to put them away and thought this could make a cool picture. It turned out decent enough, I guess.

All of My Days


February 22
This is what I woke up to this morning. After a few crappy days, it was kind of a relief. The sun was coming out and despite the really bad Monday I had coming up, it was going to be an alright day.

For awhile now, I've been trying to find out exactly what I want to do with my life. I finally figured something out today. I realized that there's a lot of things that I want to get done, but have yet to accomplish. There's a lot I need to do first to make these things happen but I'm going to figure something out.

Well I have been searching
All of my days
Many a road, you know
I've been walking on
All of my days
And I've been trying to find
What's been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well I have been quietly standing in the shade
All of my days
Watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made
All of this rain
And I've been trying to find
What's been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
All of my days
I cried aloud
I shook my hands
What am I doing here
All of these days
For I look around me
And my eyes confound me
And it's just too bright
As the days keep turning into night

Now I see clearly
It's you I'm looking for
All of my days
So I'll smile
I know I'll feel this loneliness no more
All of my days
For I look around me
And it seems you found me
And it's coming into sight
As the days keep turning into night
As the days keep turning into night
And even breathing feels all right
Yes, even breathing feels all right
Now even breathing feels all right
Yes even breathing
Feels all right

Color Coding


February 21
I've always had a small closet. One that I can't walk into and can't hang very much. When I moved into my apartment, I lucked out and got the room with the biggest closet. I don't even own a dresser anymore and I hang everything I own. So of course, OCD me is going to arrange my t shirts by color.

Huskers


February 20
Here's Landon in his Husker hat. Today was a good, relaxing day of a lot of needed family time.

Wicky Wacky Woo


February 19
Today my mom had her second surgery on her knee in Lincoln. It went really well and we drove back to Columbus for the weekend. It snowed yet again today, after teasing us with 3 really awesome spring-like days. But this is the headlight of my dads car, with snow that had slid down and frozen over it. Today consisting of waiting, driving, grocery shopping, basketball, and a whole lot of curling.

Love/Hate


February 18
Boy, do I have a love/hate relationship with this thing! I mean, don't get me wrong, I really love my phone and everything it does. But oh my gosh it makes me so mad sometimes. Half the time it doesn't even work. It's very frustrating!

Purple


February 17
Today was a lame day for me. Woke up late, got to work late, made me late for everything all day. Then spent a night at home studying for a dumb test. So for today's lame day, I took a lame picture. This is part of the centerpiece on our table.

Milk Duds


February 16
I'm severely addicted to Milk Duds. I used to hate them, but this past year I have a new love. I eat them like crazy, at least one box a week. I have been really good about it and haven't eaten them in a few weeks, but of course, Kyle buys me 3 boxes for Valentine's Day! As you can see, there's only 2 in the picture...meaning, I already ate one!

Bouquet of Bulls


February 15
So I finally got to see Kyle today, after not seeing him all weekend, and he brought me my Valentine's Day present. It was a bouquet of Red Bulls with a balloon and awesome card attached to them! I thought it was a pretty creative gift. He did a good job!

Sweet Love


February 14
Well, it's Valentine's Day, and I'm stuck in Columbus. I'm really sick of this weather. It keeps ruining things and leaving me disappointed. I have never been more ready for green grass, sun, and scorching heat.

Home Sweet Home


February 13
Here's my room at home in Columbus. I was so ready to come home this weekend. I love walking into my room. I like to think I really hate this town, but it will always be home to me.

In Focus


February 12
I'm finally home this weekend away from Lincoln and get to spend lots of needed time with my "kids." Here's Collin concentrated on his game. He's such a sweetheart.

Look at the rest of my pictures from today at...

Just One of Those Days...


February 11
Yeah that's right, I'm wearing my Monday socks on a Thursday. It's just been one of those days...

Late Bloomers


February 10
Here's another picture of my flowers from Kyle for my birthday. The pink ones hadn't bloomed yet last time I took a picture of them, and they finally did and I thought they looked really awesome.

Big Grabs


February 9
I got a mysterious email on my birthday from UPS saying that I had a package. I had no clue what it was or who it was from, so I was excited. It was supposed to come Friday but they had the wrong address, so it finally came today. My awesome friend Jonathan sent me this for my birthday! Thirty Big Grab Bags of chips! This present will last me a long time!

Be The Change #2


February 8
This is the second place this quote is displayed in my apartment.

This whole "a picture a day thing" is really testing my creativity. I haven't done anything exciting for the past week, I was sick and cooped up for 2 days of it. So I'm usually left walking around my apartment looking for interesting things.

I have a feeling it will get much easier, and much more fun when the weather outside is decent enough to venture out on photo runs. Which is one of the reasons I'm looking forward to Spring so much. But anyway, it's been fun so far. But I do have 11 and a half months to go. It's going to be tough!

Be The Change


February 7
This saying is around my house a lot. I'm a fan, if you can't tell.

A Thousand Miles


February 6
Whaddya know, another picture of my loser boyfriend singing songs. This one was Vanessa Carlton. When I said "Where has Vanessa Carlton been?" He responded with, "working at Bdub's, probably like a thousand miles away or something."

"This Is A Full-Blown Assault"


February 5
It sure seems like a lot of my pictures deal with Kyle dancing/singing to some kind of song. He's so animated sometimes.

Take Time To Smell the Roses

February 4
I actually didn't get any roses but, here's a glimpse of a few of the flowers Kyle bought me for my birthday. : )

Half and Half


February 3
Kyle and I were supposed to have date night, but we're dumb and forgot the place closed at 7:00. So we headed to the movies, and found out it was packed, and there was no where to park. So we just went to the coffee house and hung out.

It's My Birthday!!!


February 2
It's the anniversary of my birth today! Along with groundhogs day, with a sad, sad 6 more weeks of winter. :( But tonight, I went out to eat with some awesome people and we got a huge brownie to share! It was a good birthday!

Got Dirt?


February 1
My neighbors got a new doormat and I thought it was pretty funny.
