Project Life 2014- Weeks 10 and 11

I needed a little time to recover after all the pages I made for Week 9. But now I’m all caught up. Which is a good thing because the next few weeks are going to be hectic, to say the least. I cannot even say how much of a relief it is to be going simpler this year.

I was getting annoyed with myself because I couldn’t get my pictures narrowed down enough to put on one page. Then I thought “Why are you making this so hard? You’ve broken the ‘one page per week rule’ almost every week this year. Just make two pages!” So I did.

I was pretty lazy with my weekly recap, just captioning the photos.

Week Eleven is crazy long- seven pages! I’m pretty sure that’s a record. The first two pages are everyday photos from the week mixed with screenshots from my phone and our TV.

If you have an LG TV, check out their app. You can take screenshots of whatever is on your TV screen. It’s super cool and way better than the awful photos I’ve taken of our TV in the past. Very low res though, unfortunately.

The blurred out photo is a picture of the Little Man and his little sister that they sent us. Love being able to add bits of him into PL.

Journaling reads- This was a fun week. Jason and I took a lot of walks, encountering one scary duck. [Little Man] got his report card. We watched Imagine Dragons on iTunes. Jason was very busy with work. We finally got to see the Veronica Mars move, which was great! On Saturday we went to tour our new apartment. So excited! It was better than we’d imagined. We drove around Coral Springs and had a picnic in the park. After that, we had gelato and a latte at the Italian grocery. We went to Home Depot and Target on Sunday to look at plants and patio furniture. So much talking and planning our new home this week!

The next four pages are pictures from our new apartment. It will be fun to do “before and after” comparisons after we move in and get things settled.

A little explanation of the feet picture. One of the biggest selling points of this apartment (other than location) was the Ginormous Bath Tub. We had joked that it would be big enough for both of us to sit in. So when we got the opportunity to test that theory we totally went for it! We took off our shoes and jumped in- and we both fit with room to spare! Now y’all know I am not a small lady, so that just shows how big this tub is! Anyway, so the first picture of us together, we’re sitting in the tub. And the pic of our feet shows how long it is, my feet barely touch the end!

And the last page shows a few pics we took of the three parks we visited on Saturday, and our picnic. It’s such a cool area and I can’t wait to explore more of it.

High Five for Friday

1. Veronica Mars movie is green lit! Shooting starts in June! Yay!!! Two weeks after I nearly lost my s**t over the VM Kickstarter, it’s official! Super excited!

2. Call Me Maybe, orchestra edition. Okay I’m sure I’m probably the last person on earth to see this, but just in case I’m not…

3. This recipe for cucumber/ vinegar/ honey deliciousness. 

4. Green things. I planted iris bulbs this week and I can’t wait to go get more plant-y goodness this weekend!

5. Pop Culture Happy hour podcast. Catching up on a bunch of back episodes and really enjoying them.

Also loving….

Ice Cream for Breakfast Day on Thursday.
The Mentalist. Still. It’s our new comfort show.
Lazy weekend mornings when we can sleep until 9 and we don’t feel like Death on a Cracker.

Happy Friday!


Watching Real Housewives of OC reruns.
Reading Skinned again. Jason started it this week, so I’m rereading it.
Listening to Justin Timberlake’s new album free on iTunes.
Making many failed dishes. (I should not cook while sick).
Feeling congested.
Planning nothing really, trying to survive now atm.
Loving that he makes me laugh when I’m super cranky.
Blowing my nose constantly.
Missing the Pop Stuff podcast, but happy the hosts are going on to Stuff You Missed in History Class.
Craving chicken.


Super Duper happy and excited that the Veronica Mars Kickstarter has totally surpassed their goal! And in only one day!


Okay, stop what you’re doing…

And go read this article.

Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Finished? Then go here.

Y’all know I watch a lot of TV. So believe me when I tell you, this is one of the best shows I’ve ever watched. Yes, it’s about high school. Yes, Paris Hilton makes a cameo. Yes, the first half of the third season was completely tragic. But other than that, it’s a really fantastic show. And it totally deserves to be made into a movie.

Because I need me some brooding. And if it’s in space, then well… I’ll just die.  (Okay I don’t really expect it to be in space, but how awesome would that be??)
