Tuesday: May I tell you something about myself?
I've been participating in the Photo A Day May challenge on Instagram. I shared my first 10 photos from the challenge here, and now I have 10 more photos for you, along with a little bit of context for those of you who have seen them on Twitter and/or Instagram already.
May 11: Kitchen
On the day of the kitchen prompt I found myself nowhere near a kitchen at all. I was straight from work to dinner out to my student's performance of Phantom of the Opera to home in time to go to bed. The closest I got to a kitchen was a shrimp taco or three and a margarita from El Torito. Sometimes that's all you can manage.
May 12: Something that makes you happy
After my long day of driving all over the place the day before and then getting home late, it was so nice to have a lazy Saturday and take a long afternoon nap. Naps make me so happy.
May 13: Mom
My mom lives about 40 miles from me, but on Mother's Day she happened to be in my neck of the woods, so we went out for pho. It was her first time trying it and she loved it!
May 14: Grass
A gorgeous sunny afternoon at the dog park, with a maxi skirt, cute sandals, and lots of grass. Funny story about those sandals...they are just cheapies from Traget, but I really like them. So, of course, Gunner ate them. So I ordered a new pair and, of course, Gunner at those (the ones in this picture), too. I have just placed my order for a third pair of these sandals from Target, and you can bet I'll be keeping them away from his sneaky little teeth.
May 15: Love
There's no love like the love of a sweet dog. This little boy makes me so happy...even when he gobbles up my shoes.
May 16: What you're reading
My TBR pile. I didn't realize Why We Broke Up was in there...I read that months ago, so it needs to move. There were also a couple of books that were still in the bag from my shopping trip that have since been put up here.
That big, scary blue book is for school. I keep, um, not reading it.
May 17: Snack
My favorite after work snack...toasted sprouted grain muffin, avocado, goat cheese, fried egg, black pepper, then smoosh together in a sandwich. SO GOOD.
May 18: Something you made
This day was similar to the kitchen day (and they were both Fridays...stop giving me these domestic prompts on Fridays!)...I wasn't going to be around anything that I actually made. But I did make an impromptu dinner date with my mom, who was still in town. We had these delicious drinks and a super yummy dinner. And we just had a good time talking and hanging out.
Newport Beach! My very favorite place! I have no idea why I made this stupid face for the picture, but I was out on my friend's Duffy boat in the bay and it was a perfect way to spend a Saturday.
May 20: Something you can't live without
I'll share the rest of the pictures at the end of the month!
