200th post

I am so pleased the bathroom is finished, I think it looks awesome! I am not quite sold on the painting but Adam likes it.


This is all that is left of the cookies, but I am so in love with them. I am going to making more tomorrow for my Halloween party at work!

Chocolate chip pumpkin cookies

I may have added too many chocolate chips. Oh well!

We will get to enjoy these at our painting class tomorrow.

At our lab meeting today we were given a couple of chocolates I loved the inside of my wrapper today. It made me smile, since I feel like I have been focusing on writing down my dreams and goals lately.

Don't worry Adam I got a chocolate for you too, it is safe at home!

The vase

This afternoon/evening was one of those times were lots of things were going wrong and snowballing. I came home after taking Sterling to the vet (he is fine, just sore) and saw the flowered opening up and the frog vase and finally smiled.

It was the first time I had smiled since 2:30 in the afternoon. The whole effect of the flowers and vase helped melt away a little bit of the anxiety the past couple of hours had brought.

Quiet place

Just a clean room to meditate in. It isn't quite done yet, but the floor is clean!!

My handsome husband brought me flowers, dinner and dessert. It was a nice end to an emotional day.

Adam and I found out this week that our hair stylist and friend died in a car accident. We are in shock, we just saw her on Saturday.

Here is a picture of my hair, she expressed her creativity through hair and she definitely made me feel like a masterpiece sometimes.

Her memorial service is Saturday.

Rest in peace Katherine, you will be missed.

Birthday cards

I had so much fun making this card last week, but I had to save of until the birthday girl's big day. Happy birthday Shannon! (Just FYI I don't always make cards this awesome)

21 Days

Yesterday I completed the 21 day yoga challenge! When I began this challenge I made three short term goals:

1. Do yoga six times a week (accomplished!)
2. Complete the three day fruit fast (the goal didn't happen)
3. Paint the bathroom (mostly accomplished)

The bathroom is almost done, I have to hang things up and fix the toilet.

The fruit fast was too difficult for me and I ended up feeling ill. I learned that my body really needs protein to function well.

I did yoga as often as I could and enjoyed most of my classes!

I have a lot more hope for the future than I had at the beginning of the challenge. I have a lot more energy. But I am also ready to give my muscles some time to recover and rest.

I am so glad that I did this challenge I am in a much better place than I was 21 days ago.

Adam deserves lots of praise to for encouraging me and being the best husband in the world!

Walking by this sign today I got so excited about the idea of taking cooking classes with Adam. This location cannot open soon enough!

Reading paragraphs

Everything feels different and I don’t know if that is okay.   What I mean by that is I don’t know if it meets other people’s expectations...
