358/365 Christmas Eve

Mom and Grandmom.

Sean, Jayme, Grandmom, Steph and Fran.

Our Christmas tree.

Tonight was lovely and tomorrow is Christmas! Yipee!

357/365 Cawley Christmas

Myself, Dad and Steph

Katie playing the trumpet!

Cawley Christmas at the PA Cawley's was delightful. We had amazing Mediterranean/Greek food, opened presents, and sang carols! I hope this is a new tradition for us!

356/365 I Heart Veggies

Mondo's Very Veggie sub ain't got nothin' on me! Made this nom nom sandwich today.

355/365 GCR

Golf Club Road, still always beautiful.

354/365 Vincent van Gogh

Went to Phila today with Mom and Jayme and saw Steph and Fran! I also got to meet their kitty, Vincent. I am allergic to cats so normally dislike them, but this guy is the sweetest! He's also apparently a ghost...

353/365 Petunia

This is not Petunia's first appearance in this photo blog, but I wanted to make sure she was well represented. She's such a big part of my life.

352/365 GINGERBREAD HOUSE DAY!

So today was the long-awaited gingerbread house day. This is my house. It's really not a very good picture of it, but honestly I didn't take a lot of pictures. That's mostly because I was taking a lot of videos to make a mockumentary. Yes, that's a real thing that happened. I love my family.

351/365 Book Tower

I mean like...I only have a few books out from the library...

350/365 Gentlemen

Gingerbread Gentlemen! I had way too much fun making these tonight. Dad and I baked a total of three batches of gingerbread, more than we've ever done. Next year we legit need to scale back.

349/365 Hair

Ohhhhh, look! Another picture of my face. I counted, and this is my fourth haircut this year. I have also had four hair colors this year. It's the shortest it's been since summer of 2010. I enjoy.

348/365 Candy Galore

Getting ready to gingerbread house it up on Sunday! Every year we say we got too much candy...this year it's definitely true. There's even more hiding on the perimeters of this picture.

347/365 Elation!

A picture of my happy face and my too-long hair! Fall semester is over. Now only to anxiously await my grades, and get my hair cut on Thursday! Hoorah!

346/365 FILM!

FINALLY developed that roll of film that I had been trying to use up since May! If you go back and look at posts 127, 135, and 138 you will see more film photos! This one is of my bedroom in my apartment at school. I love lamp.

345/365 Kenneth is Immortal

Working on my 3D model. Please take note of the picture of Kenneth from 30 Rock in my one picture frame. This is my small act of defiance against this class and this model.

344/365 Topping Tornado

I love seeing products in stores that make me stop and laugh. This looks like so much fun. If I got to do this when I was a kid I would have probably peed myself. Heck, I'd probably pee myself now.

343/365 Apple Pie

So I do this thing where when I get stressed or anxious I bake. It just makes me happy. Apparently when I can't make furniture out of model magic, I just end up making an apple pie. My life.

342/365 3D Model

I DID NOT MAKE THIS. This is the model that I have to make. It's going to take a lot, a lot, a lot of hours, but after I do this I will never have to deal with this class or professor again.

341/365 Final Costumes

Gang's all here. Costume Design final is done, and I am very happy with it. I can only hoe that Henry loves it as much as I do, and that I can manage an A in this class. if I do, I will honestly be very proud of myself.

340/365 Kickin'

I've had this flower since Lughnasa and it is still kicking! I love having it next to my bed.

339/365 Rings

3 of many, many, many of my rings. These three just looked particularly lovely to me sitting on my desk today. 

338/365 Meal Plan Woes

Just went to lakeside and spent all my flex. Hardly got any food at all...

337/365 Choco Chip #2 and 3

Test batch recipe #3; a recipe of my own accord! It didn't turn out fantastic, but it wasn't half bad!

Also, test batch recipe #2 = WINNER. No photos because they gotten nommed up too quickly.

336/365 Choco Chip

Test recipe #1 for chocolate chip cookies. These had an excellent texture, but not so good a taste.

335/365 Revisions

I have spent many hours sketching for my costume design final. Hoping for the best with these revisions. I mean, check out the buff farmer as my source for Silvius. Can't go wrong there.

334/365 Bunnies

Fueled by Annie's Bunny Snacks.

333/365 Stressed Desserts

To the left we have a chocolate cake with mint 'monster' icing. To the right we've got a vanilla cake with a mixed berry frosting that is so fluffy you'd think you were eating a cloud.
Baking for three hours tonight instead of doing homework was the right choice.
Last two weeks of the semester...priorities = in order.

P.S. The title...SEE WHAT I DID THERE?! ;)

332/365 Avocado

Successfully cut this avocado in half, got the pit out like a beast, and then was literally able to peel it by hand because it was so ripe the skin was coming right off. Like a BOSS.

331/365 Lily (that is a lily, right?)

I came back to school fearing all my flowers would be dead, only to discover that this one was still in beautiful condition along with a few others! Then Krystle, Tori and I watched The Walking Dead.
I knew she was a walker!

330/365 Zipper

Costume Design leads me to taking pictures of things like this. Riveting.

329/365 Birthday Girl

Today I had to work, which was icky. But tonight I got to go to dinner with my mom, dad and Nina for Neen's birthday, and that was wonderful. And tomorrow I will bake Nina delicious treats, as promised, and that is wonderful too.

328/365 Thanksgiving

I am thankful for my family, specifically my cousins who use silverware as mustaches.

I am thankful for vegan food, because I had too many delicious dishes to name.

I am thankful, again, for my family. Because only my family would put out paper place mats and little cups of crayons for us to draw on at dinner. And only my sister would sit across from me and draw me. And only my younger cousins Anna and Katie and myself would sit there doodling and drawing the Deathly Hallows symbol a bunch of times.

It was a spectacular giving of thanks.


327/365 Haircuts

Tori cut all her hair off! Yay!


326/365 Driving

On the drive from Tori's. We ate Chinese, watched The Wild Thornberry's movie, vegged out. Successful night.


325/365 Vegan Noms

These are NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM. Now just to find Justin's Chocolate Hazlenut butter...


324/365 Lughnasa Wrap-Up

I only have one picture posted that is a direct reference to 'Dancing at Lughnasa'. This was the note on our call board from our director, Pam. It really was an incredibly successful show, and her faith and enjoyment in it made me believe that even more so.

323/365 Family Flowers

Flowers from Grandmom and Mom and Dad in full bloom!

322/365 Freddy and Isabella

Freddy and Isabella back in my life, as it should be.
I'm exhausted. Can't wait for this coming week to hopefully, finally RELAX...even though after this show is over there's still a ton of school things for me to worry about...but it'll be fine.

So if this does end up being my last *post*, please believe that things are good with me, and even when they're not, they will be soon enough.
And I will believe the same about you.

Love Always, Taylor

Name the book that I have obviously recently re-read to win five points!

321/365 Pumpkin Breakfast Om Noms

What is that you say? This was my breakfast?
Yup.
Pumpkin, oats, raisins, ground flax seed, cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses, vanilla all baked into yummy little cookies and a little rice milk and confectioner's sugar glaze for on top. This is breakfast, and it's real.

320/365 Irish Bake Sale

Theatre Club Bake Sale for OPENING NIGHT of DANCING AT LUGHNASA! People made delicious things, we listened to show tunes, the usual.

319/365 Bake-apy

Because no matter how stressed out you are, no matter how utterly exhausted you are, no matter how many other things you could be doing or how many other ways you could be spending your time, you should always make time to bake. Especially when the baking is Pumpkin Oatmeal cookies for the Theatre Club Bake Sale tomorrow.

318/365 Veggie Sammie

Take that, Mondo's! You subs ain't got nothing on my sandwich making skills!
Spicy chipotle hummus, spinach, carrots and tomato on twelve grain bread. Nomming that up erryday.

317/365 Rosie Mundy

Rose Mundy, where is your modesty?!
First tech run was today. It went well. Two dress rehearsals, five shows, and we're done. I'll be relieved.

316/365 Baketress

I promised Aunt Cheryl a picture of me in my apron, and I rather liked this one of myself with my peanut butter chocolate pillows! Thanks for taking it, Krystle!

315/365 Whose Line?

'Whose Line?' went so well tonight! My mother-in-law and husband!

314/365 Final Rehearsal

Halls cough drops make me crack up.
'You've survived tougher.'
'The show must go on. Or work.'
Also, my apron is cute =)
