photo an hour: june 21st, 2012

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

I'm happy to say I'm halfway through another one of this year's goals. This is my sixth photo an hour post this year, you can find all the others here. I love looking back through the older ones, even last month's seems like it was forever ago. It's so neat to me how one photo can trigger my memory of the rest of the day. They're like random puzzle pieces of a day that help me put together a whole puzzle in my mind. I should really do more photo an hour posts!

6 am // A very healthy breakfast of chocolate milk and a sprinkled donut.
7 am // Went out to water my flowers and this guy came running up to me wanting pet. I happily obliged.
8 am // My mom picked me up and we headed to the thrift store!
9 am // We both found a few things. I got some pillow cases, and an old photo album at the first store.
10 am // Another thrift store, browsing through the books.
11 am // Another thrift store, yet again!
12 pm // You know you're an adult when you mom actually suggests ice cream for lunch, like I can resist a hot fudge sundae!
1 pm // Browsing the flowers at WalMart.
2 pm // My mom dropped me off at my house after our little shopping excursion. I relaxed with a slushie and flipped through my newly thrifted book.
3 pm // The kitties are always interested in what I bring home. I found a perfect little basket perfect for mushrooms and other treasures I find on walks and an adorable picnic blanket while thrifting.
4 pm // Dinner. Chick'n nuggets and four choices of sauce is what I like to call a nugget buffet.
(I think spicy mustard is my favorite of the four!)
5pm // Went to the park with this guy and took some outfit pictures.
6 pm // Time to plant some flowers I picked up earlier in the day. My deck is becoming quite the little forest of flowers and I couldn't be happier about it!
7 pm // Our evenings almost always include me doing my nails while we watch a movie.
8 pm // We ditched the movie (despite it being one of our favorites) and Kevin set off to find something to watch online.
We ended up starting Breaking Bad Season 4. (Oh my gosh, so good and sooo very stressful!) Afterwards we read in bed for a while and finally drifted asleep.
And that was my day broken down hour by hour!
xoxo

  4. I just love these posts. :) I've had such an unlucky time at thrift stores lately! :( But I'm glad you scored some awesome goodies! Oh, and I have that exact Big Hug Mug (that I got on a more successful thrifting trip a while back haha)!

  5. My Dad has the exact same mug you do in the first picture. It makes me so happy just seeing it. I love a day full of thrifting and it looks like you scored some good finds

  7. I have just found your blog and am loving it! I'm so intrigued by the thrift stores, the one in your picture in this post looks HUGE! I think they must be similar to our charity shops in the UK, which I am addicted to ... but ours are so little in comparison! Mind you, we do end up getting roads full of them so we are not deprived! Thank you for another fascinating post!

  8. Oh my god, another Breaking Bad fan! Ahhh! I so desperately want to talk about season 4 as I just finished watching it the other day. How incredible is it?? I seriously had a thing for Gus (oh noo I'm not weird for that am I? He was so sophisticated!), but I hated what he did in the first episode of season 4. So unlike him, so unclassy! Bleargh. Can you believe they are stretching season 5 over 16 episodes and 2 years? Waah!
    Oh god, sorry, I've written you an essay. Yay for Breaking Bad!

    1. Just because you didn't see photos of the food doesn't mean I didn't eat more. ;)

  11. I love your photo-an-hour posts. It's always interesting to see what happens "in the day" of a person. :) Do these events happen within the hour? For example, you painted your nails during the 8 o'clock hour; it didn't happen exactly at 8 pm? I wonder what would be the end result if you stopped whatever you were doing and took a photo on the hour every hour of whatever you were doing.

  18. I absolutely love your photo an hours! I might have to copy this for my future blog. Or at least do it for myself, I would love to look back and have that photo memory trigger. Especially for my forgetful mind!

    Those thrift stores look so nice and tidy! I'm jealous! I have yet to find one that nice and clean like that...

    You use a rag to remove your nail polish?? That seems brilliant!!! Cotton balls...what was I thinking!?

    Love this as always m'dear.

  20. Every month I try to wrap my head around how you eat breakfast at 6 and eat dinner by 4! That's amazing and I wish I could figure out how to get more into the early parts of my day. My breakfast is usually around 11, and dinner around 10 :(

  25. We just started Breaking Bad and I can hardly finish an episode. I get so stressed out I have to leave the room! I had my husband recap the last few episodes for me, haha.

  26. I love looking at your photo an hour posts! I tried doing a photo an hour earlier this month, but I was at work all day so there were a bunch of boring pictures of me at work. I will do it eventually!

  27. Can I just say, I love that you're not ashamed about what you eat. Not that you should be at all, but most bloggers I read would never say they had a chocolate doughnut for breakfast, ice cream, and a nugget buffet all in one day XD Which in all honesty is how most of us regular humans eat anyway. I just dig your honesty, and your cat is unbelievably cute in that shirt XD

  30. One of the main reason i want a trip over to America is to search huge thrift stores like the one you've photographed! It makes me so jealous seeing those things, ours are tiny, and pretty crappy. Siiignnn.

    your days are so interesting!

  37. LLLOOOOOOLLLL do you pets just randomly wear t-shirts about the house? I LOVE IT!

    I am so envious of your day and the weather. I am slaving away at a desk on the other side of the world and atm leave home in the dark and get home in the dark. BAH to winter!

    1. No, well, yes but he does wear it for a reason. Professor has some sort of allergy and the shirt stops him from scratching at it and hurting himself. I was pretty stoked when the vet suggested put a shirt on him. Hehe!

  44. It's funny how when you wake up it's noon where I live. And I wake up at noon so that makes us even haha. I always say to my friends living in the US that I'm from the future :D This brings up the funniest conversations. Btw, I'm still jealous of you being able to go thrifting, there are a couple of stores I've recently found but they asked $19 for a onestep instant camera which they had no idea if it worked or not. Yeah expensive -.- Hopefully I'll find a cheaper store someday.

  48. I like the lighting in these pics -- especially the one of your beau sitting on the couch with the laptop -- something very summery about it. Overall, looks like it was a great, fun day!

  49. That has got to be the coolest mug ever!
    Also, you have such better thrift stores than us! Jealous.

  50. Porch flowers are the best! And if I ever were to move into an apartment, I'd NEEEEED a huge balcony to cover with potted plants!

    ...and, gosh, I don't think I'd ever seen a picture of your fella's finger tattoos—they're perfect!

  51. What a fab little idea! I LOVE that you watch Breaking Bad, bring on the season finale I say :-)
