Photo Challenge

Since I’m new to the blog world I thought it would be fun to do a 30 day photo challenge.  I’m hoping it will help keep me blogging and help you get to know me a little better.  Here’s to the next thirty days!

30. 3/13 – You can’t live without


Starbucks.  Just can’t live without it.  I found this in my bathroom the other morning, I think I have a problem…

29. 3/12 – Sleep


I just love taking pictures of Mark sleep.  He’s going to kill me for posting this.

28. 3/11 – Shadows


This photo was taken on our engagement shoot.  I love this shadow!

27. 3/10 – Something Pink


My fishing gear!  I absolutely love to fish and my pink fishing gear makes it that much more fun.  When people see my short pink poles they always  doubt my fishing skills, I love their reaction when I start reeling them in!

26. 3/9 – Shoes

I love my Hunter boots!  It is so nice to be able to walk through rain and show without having to worry about destroying my shoes.  If you don’t have a pair, get some!

25. 3/8 – Sunrise


Beautiful Florida Sunrise over the ocean.  I need to go to the beach!

24. 3/7 – Bokeh

Well this was an easy one – our (not so new anymore) home!

20. 3/3 – Long Exposure


My pathetic attempt at a long exposure.  I think I need some practice with this.

19. 3/2 – Something Blue


Frozen on Ice a few weeks ago.  I’m pretty sure we were the only ones there without kids but it was amazing!

18. 3/1 – Architecture


I went to Holy Name Cathedral for Ash Wednesday Mass, the architecture is amazing!

17. 2/28 – Food


In celebration of booking our trip abroad, a panini from Florence!

16. 2/27 – Love 


So so so much love!

15. 2/26 – Something Red


My favorite red lipstick: Clinique Chubby Stick!  If you don’t have one, get one!

Chicago is so so cold.

13. 2/24 – Something Touristy


Mark and my Mom both caught fowl balls in the same game.  We go to White Sox games all the time and no one has ever caught one let alone two!

12. 2/23 – A Skyline


One of my favorite spots in Chicago and where I got engaged!

11. 2/22 – Macro


I am very luck to almost always have a beautiful flower arrangement on my desk at work.

10. 2/21 – Something new


I’ve been trying to get Mark to buy a pink shirt for years, he always refuses to.  Yesterday when he picked me up from the train I noticed a shopping bag in the back seat.  Look what Mark bought himself!

9. 2/20 – Something old


This photo was taken of myself my Grams and my mom on my wedding day.  I have always admired my Grams’s engagement ring and love how this photo turned out.

8. 2/19 – Black and White


Spring Training starts tomorrow so this black & white photo is perfect for my Chicago White Sox!

7. Wednesday 2/18 – Yourself with 10 things

The contents of my purse!  Book, train pass, pager (I call it my giga pet), eos, lip gloss, hand full of almonds, sun glasses, wallet, inhaler and Michael Kors bag.

6. Tuesday 2/17 – Flowers


Valentine’s flowers!

5.  Monday 2/16 – Something orange


My favorite, Yes to carrots!

4. Sunday 2/15 – Something that you miss


I miss Florida, and the beach and fun fruity drinks and warm weather!

3. Saturday 2/14 – What you wore today


I bought Mark and I matching pajamas for Valentine’s Day so since it was Valentine’s Day that is what I wore.  I know, nothing too exciting but after Friday’s birthday/bar celebration we needed a pj day!

2. Friday 2/13 – This makes you smile


Last night we went out to celebrate Mark’s birthday.  This man defiantly makes me smile!

1. Thursday 2/12 – Self Portrait

IMG_4966I have been spending a lot of time at the gym lately.  I’ve always loved working out but after getting married, saving for a house and the craziness of the move I have really let myself go.  We joined a fantastic Health Club in the area (it has a spa and three pools!), I got a personal trainer and I’m slowly falling back in love with working out.  I’ve even discovered the weight room!  This self portrait is a perfect portrayal of my life at the moment.
