Photo an hour; January 10th

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

As you may remember from my 2012 goal post, I wanted to do at least one photo an hour post per month, so here's January's! This is my day yesterday, summarized in photos...

7am // Wide awake, showered and dressed for the day!
 8am // Preparing the day's blog post...
9am // Early lunch. Not a very healthy one but pizza and root beer sure do make a delicious one!
10am // Listing some items I had in my draft listings in the CBV shop.
11am // My helper, who sits on the back of my chair, helping me measure items.
12pm // Washing loads and loads of pretty vintage clothes. Some for me, some for the shop! 
1pm // Photographing some new vintage goodies. My dining room has been in a complete state of chaos since opening CBV. Things are always on the table waiting for their turn to be photographed.
 2pm // Cutting up green onions, onions, carrots and celery for soup!
3pm // Finally done, and ready to chow down on! *You can find how to make my vegan "chicken" noodle soup right here. It's SO delicious!
4pm // Time to pack orders! I love packing orders, it's so much fun.
5pm // Put on my favorite record and folded the mass amounts of laundry I did.
6pm // Went to the beach and collected more treasures. (I'll share photos of that this weekend!)

The rest of the evening consisted of watching Zodiac, eating spinach sandwiches (oh my gosh, my favorite!!) and relaxing! All in all it was a great day!
xoxo

    Your day looks so productive, I'm jealous. Being on winter break away from school is wreaking havoc on my sleep schedule. I've been waking up at NOON! Horrible.

  30. My boyfriend's cat loves to sit on the back of his chair while he works at his computer, too! Mine, however, likes to block the computer! :) I also just thrifted that fox purse after coveting it at Target for the longest time. I was so excited when I found it!

  34. now you can cross that off your resolution list, right? i'm guessing you're a vegetarian.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm really interested in this spinach sandwich thing! I mean there has to be more to it than spinach and bread right? If so let me know! I'm always keen on a yummy veggie sandwich. Bean sprouts, avocado and tomato have been my jam lately ;)

  39. "No matter where I serve my guest, they always like my kitchen best" the exact same thing was hanging up in the kitchen in the house I grew up in. Weird and nice seeing a little piece of my childhood on here. :)

  40. Mmm what brand of pizza is that? Seeing as I'm a new follower I was wondering are you full on vegan? Cause sometimes some of your goodies look like leather, not trying to be rude miss k, just curious is all ") also would you ever share more of your veganism/vegetarianism? That would be awesome!

  43. Miranda, I'm not vegan either and I'm pretty sure that soup is the best thing ever!! ;)

    Teddi, nope, the goal is to do this once a month for the entire year.

    The Daily Fashionista,It's steamed spinach with vegenaise on toast. SO GOOD.

    Curious Little Bird, the decals are from etsy. :)

    Anon, I am NOT vegan.
