150/365 Driving Home

Car is disgustingly dirty due to my front yard. Brilliant setting sun. Closed for the first time by myself today. Probably have a second, better job. Three months of summer still remain.

149/365 Coconut Cove

Nina got this crazy-ass drink when we went to dinner at Coconut Cove tonight. Food, average. Prices, too high. But she got to keep the cup, so I guess they get bonus points for that.

148/365 Balloon Animals

GUY MAKING BALLOON ANIMALS OUTSIDE THE BOOKSTORE.
I took this picture very shadily from the window of the bookstore. I was tempted to ask him to make me a princess hat, and was going to act on it, but he left too early.

147/365 Bookstore

I try not to complain about a lot of things in my life, because I know it is good and I am fortunate. But...I very seriously dislike my job. Not going to rant about this, it wouldn't really do anyone good.

ON A POSITIVE NOTE;
Katie reblogged my post of her snickerdoodle blondies, and I've gotten tons of pageviews from this! This makes me quite happy! =D

146/365 Order of the Pheonix

"Neville, put that wrapper in the bin, she must have given you enough of them to paper your bedroom by now..."
But as they left, Harry was sure he saw Neville slip the wrapper into his pocket.

Truly one of the saddest chapters in all of Harry Potter. 

145/365 Stupid Trees

Every. Frickin'. Morning.

144/365 Childhood

First day back at the bookstore today, and we got in a shipment. These Shark Pinchers were included in said shipment. Childhood reminiscence.
Also, just finished watching a 6 hour, 12 minute, 19 inning Phillies game. History.

143/365 Tofu, corn and spinach salad

When will my posts stop being of food? When I find a legitimately more interesting subject to photograph. And I find food to be pretty alluring...

142/365 Summer Food

Chickpea salad om nom nom nom nom.

141/365 Diner

The golden arch of sweet potato french fries. Delicious diner meal, wonderful evening with Lizzie and Al.

140/365 Suddenly Seymour

Oh hey, plant that looks like a Venus Fly Trap in my backyard.

139/365 A little expansion on the usual photo-a-day

A photographic chronicle of a snickerdoodle blondie baking adventure.



















Success! Here's the recipe!

And here's the genius who created these genius treats!

Hope you enjoyed my post, Katie!

138/365 Central Avenue

Once again from film camera. Only have a few shots left, should be developed soon.

*Edit; 12/12/11

The view of my street will never not be beautiful to me.

137/365 Phillies hair

As I was about to take a photo of myself to record what my hair looks like today after using baking soda and apple cider vinegar instead of shampoo and conditioner, the umpire in the Phillies game made an awful call and I made this face. That is that.

136/365 Collage

And so the crafts begin.

135/365 Grandmom and Mother's Day

Took another photo on film today, will post when I finish the roll and develop it.

*Edit 12/12/11

The lake at my grandmom's house, duckies and all.

134/365 GOF!

Today's post isn't food! It's Harry Potter. Hooray for summer.

133/365 Salsa

Now that I'm home and it's at my disposal constantly...all I eat is salsa.

132/365 Homemade Nutty Bars

Last night Mom and I did some shopping for the after prom party, and we bought Little Debbies. Mom told me not to eat any. So I was about to just eat a Nutty Bar when I went, 'wait, I can make these myself!'
So I did. With considerably less chemicals and sugar and junk. And, most importantly, it was the best decision I've ever made.
The picture is a little blurry. I think that's because I was so excited I couldn't hold the camera steady, so I'm okay with it.

131/365 Still food...

Spicy black bean burger, made from scratch. I have so much free time.
AND MOM BOUGHT ME HARRY POTTER and the DEATHLY HALLOWS Part 1 on DVD TODAY!
Verdict; Taylor still sobs at the end.

130/365 Cookie Dough Balls

Raw (and pretty healthy) cookie dough, and no salmonella!
CCK, you are making my life so amazing.

P.S. I know, this blog might as well be a food blog at this point.

129/365 'Ice Cream'

Homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream. YES.

But I can't take credit for this recipe! CCK, once again!

128/365 Moony

I actually finished the 3rd HP a few days ago, but I needed to post this picture because this is my favorite book, and this chapter explains why.
Also, by the end of this month I will probably have a picture of every HP book since I'm currently re-reading the series, and obviously I couldn't skip POA.

127/365 FILM PHOTO

Been taking pictures with a film camera. Will post later!

*Edit 12/12/11

Worth the wait, right? I love this picture of myself =)

126/365 Graduation




Wait. Okay. Three Pictures? I know, but today was an important day.
Steph graduated as Salutatorian of her class at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, and we sat through the long ceremony to watch her get her diploma, and hear me sing the awful, awful song that is our school's Alma Mater. We then went to Ma France Creperie dans Ocean City, and had a delightful meal.

Picture 1; Dad, Steph, Fran and Mom right after graduation, in front of Big Blue.
Picture 2; Steph opening her cards and gifts at lunch. The way the sun was coming in the windows and how CUTE she looked made me really like this picture.
Picture 3; Walnut and brie galette. No more words. I decided not to post the photo of my dessert banana and nutella crepe, for fear of making people too painstakingly jealous.

Congratulations, Stephi!

125/365 Bridge

So today I drove into Stone Harbor. Twice. To go to a store that was closed. Both time. Even though the first time assured me (with a little handwritten sign) that they would be open after 2pm. This was false. And I got stuck behind the bridge opening. So I took some picture while sitting there. Although not with my car in park, because we all know what Petunia likes to do when Taylor puts her in park when not actually parking. That's right, not go back into drive, therefore leaving Taylor stuck in the middle of roads/intersections, etc. This is a long, rambling post. I think I felt the need to justify the lame picture.
P.S. If you go back to day 33, you can have a fun comparison of that side-view mirror picture with this one! Yay!

124/365 Reese's Flurry

First Trolley Stop of the year =)

123/365 Om noms

Oh, are those mint chocolate bars? Yes. Yes, they are. Are they made out of nothing but dates, walnuts, cocoa, peppermint extract and a few chocolate chips and therefore pretty darn healthy? Yes, they are indeed.

Thanks, CCK for the idea!

122/365 Summer

First day of summer. Shellbay is ugly from this view.

121/365 Goodbye, H304

I believe this is the first black and white photo of my blog.

Today was the LAST day of my freshman year of college. It turned out to be a pretty bittersweet day, so relieved to be done school, but will miss new friends (family). This picture depicts more sadness than I really felt all day, but it's my favorite of the ones I took.

I'm home for the summer! Finally! Now on to my long list of things to accomplish/read/do in the next four months!

120/365 Floor

H300. I'm going to miss this floor a little bit.
