Project 365: Day 186- June 4th

I've recently become obsessed with side pony tails. I'm not even really sure why, but I like having a curly ponytail off to the side of my head hehe! :) So, there's a little shot of that.

Then, I FINALLY got a new cell phone cover, haha! For those of you who have seen my precious lil' phone recently... you know how badly I needed this, haha! I LOVE it and it totally fits me! :)

(the front, obviously, haha)

(and the cute little back to it hehe!)

Then Ethan came home and we went to NTB to get his oil changed and for him to get new tires. Here we are waiting, haha:

No, he never has his eyes open! LOL And here is being lazy, hahaha:

And he took a random picture of me waiting with my polar pop! lol We were watching "Ice Drivers" or something like that on the History Channel. Pretty interesting!

And one more random shot of us waiting, haha:

Oh yes, he loves me, haha! And then after that, Ethan went out to the garage to see how things were going and there was a lady sitting like a little bit away from me... so I was like "Hello! Ugh, I hate going to places with cars with him haha! Drives me crazy!" LOL and she legit got up and walked away.... Some people, I tell ya! haha!

Then Ethan took me to Rally's! I'd never been there before but oh my heavens! It was some gooood eating! :)

And then we spent the rest of the night watching "Taken" (which I don't typically like action movies, but I LOVED this one! Liam Neeson did an incredible job!) And Ethan drove around showing off his new tires and wheels haha! And we spent like 2 hours sitting in the street talking to Matt and Carrie, haha! Good times :)

Project 365: Day 185- June 3rd

Ugh. Yes. I got my first speeding ticket ever. Sad day in the world of Alyssa. 45 in a 35, dangit. But funny story to go along with it. So, I see him behind me, and I pull over. I sit there for a second, he gets out of his car, and stands behind my car for a minute. I'm like thinking "Uh, what's going on?" And he's talking to someone on his radio... and so I roll down my window and look back and say, "Sir?" And he says "I need to see your weapon." HAHAHA. Okay, if you know me at all, you know... I wouldn't even know how to operate a weapon, let alone carry one around in my car. So, he walks up to the window (of course just his head is peaking in with his hand on his holster) and says "We just ran your plates, your registered ccw. I just need to see your weapon." I was like "Sir, I'm not trying to be rude, but I have no idea what a ccw is or how I got registered for it" and he says "You're registered for ccw: concealed carry weapon. Now you're not in trouble, I just need to see the weapon." Once again, I'm like "I do not own a weapon." So then he asks me if it's my vehicle... yes, the one with the pretty lei in the rearview mirror is my car, haha! So, he gets all my information and writes me a lovely $100 ticket...... 10 miles over on a loooooooooong, not crowded road... and that's what I get. Ugh. I was hyperventilating, haha! But it's paid and it's over with. Dear Lord, no more of that!
So then I came home, helped Arena with a project, and went to Subway with Ethan! Then he took a nap and I watched "I Love You, Beth Cooper." Pretty cute movie!

Then Ethan went to play basketball, and I watched "Madea's Family Reunion" and worked on the piles of homework I had! I LOVE Madea! "It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to." True story! :)

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 184- June 2nd

I spent the better part of my day reading "Differentiating Instruction" for class tomorrow. I have 2 discussion forums due and 3 chapters to read by Thursday so it was go time haha! It's not exactly the most interesting stuff, but it's stuff I gots ta know, haha

Then Arena (Ethan's brother's girlfriend) came over because we were going to cook some Mexican food for the boys! We sipped a lil' wine, haha, and got started cooking! Arena browned the hamburger, I chopped the veggies.... and the boys ate it, of course! Well, Arena decides we should get pictures together so we have Ethan and Jon take pics for us... they wouldn't count to 3, they just kept snapping pictures... and here's what we got LOL

haha, and after that whole experience failed, we all hung out for awhile... and then started freaking out cause the first naaaaaaaaasty, bad storm of the season hit!

Project 365: Day 183- June 1st

So, Ethan could not believe I had never seen "Superbad" haha, so we went and rented it... and I have to say.. pretty funny movie lol. I giggled in a lot of places, haha! Ethan always quotes some parts of it LOL like the part where Seth says "That's the coolest story I've ever heard" to Fogle, hahahaha! Jerk. LOL

And we had roast for dinner. Yummy! It seems to be the meal we have at least once a week cause we're all absolutely in l-o-v-e with it!

Then I made chocolate pudding muffins. They look really messy, but oh well, haha! They were yummy! You bake chocolate muffins like normal, poke a hole in the middle of them, make chocolate pudding, pour that chocolate pudding down the hole and all over the top and there you have it! I have to say... they taste amazing! :)
Then we headed to the store to buy mexican stuff so Arena and I can make Jon and Ethan dinner tomorrow night! It's taco salads in this house tomorrow haha! We got hamburger, chicken, taco seasoning, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing, nacho chips, salsa, peppers, and onions! It's gonna be yummy hehe! :)

And my night ended with watching Daniel Tosh on Comedy Central, haha! My mom texted me and told me it was on, so her and I texted hilarious stuff he was saying back and forth LOL Things like:

"I will choke you if you're younger, smaller, and preferably white" hahaha
"We're all sad your cousin died, but he was showin' off"
"The bracelets are WORKING""Guy at the movie theater was making me mad, so I turned around to hit him, but then I saw my bracelelt 'what would Jesus do'... so I lit him on fire and sent him to hell" hahahahah

Project 365: Day 182- May 31st

Happy Memorial Day everyone!
Our day started with Ethan and I heading down to my grandma's house for a yummy cook-out hehe! I was so excited because Ethan hadn't met the rest of the family yet! And they absolutely LOVED him hehe! ESPECIALLY grandpa, haha! They're legit like best friends now, lol! See:

And here's Ethan trying out Chloe's jump rope. I was dying laughing LOL

The parade. Don't blink or you'll miss it LOL

Aunt Shelly singing the National Anthem:

And the speaker at the parade:

Adam (my older cousin) and his two boys- Trinton and Brady hehe! They were in the parade:

The flags half mast. God bless America.

The rest of the family at the cook-out:

A random card I got in the mail today with no return address and it wasn't signed. Weird, huh? haha

And then we went to Ethan's mom's for a cook out to see his sister and his grandma.. and while there, we decided to go intertubing! Wahooooo! :) hehe! Here's a shot of Jon and Arena airing up their tube:

And our sad, deflated intertubes.... wanna know why? LOL

Well, we go and buy 2 more intertubes for Jon and Arena and we pile 2 in my car and 2 in Ethan's car. Well, I had no idea, but the vent in my back seat is broken.. and jagged... and when Ethan's intertube went in there, it popped. Well, we didn't find this out UNTIL we were already cleaaaaaaaaaaaaar out where we intertube. Go figure, haha! So, Ethan and I just decided to double up on the blue/white intertube and give Jon and Arena the pink and blue ones. No biggie right? Yea. It was like pulling teeth to get both of us on the blue and white tube.. and when we did both get on it.. it was uncomfortable. oh AND that tube popped, bahaha! So here we are... in the middle of a river with a popped intertube *sigh* Sooo, Jon and Arena got on one intertube together and Ethan and I got on the other one, but this time it was a bit more comfy, haha! It's funny to think about now, but at the time.. oooo, tempers were flaring, haha! Then, I was literally going to have hypothermia, so we got out and had to walk like a mile back to our cars.. in the rain.. with no shoes LOL Good times, bahaha!!
And once we got back to our cars, we changed, and headed to McDonalds. We were all VERY worn out and starving haha! As Ethan and I were leaving McDonalds, we saw this amazingly gorgeous rainbow:

Then Ethan and I drove out for him to drop a tire off, watched I Can Do Bad All By Myself, and headed to bed, but not til I made the roast for dinner tomorrow!

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 181- May 30th

Well, it was a pretty non-eventful day in the home today. Ethan had to work today, so I spent my day reading the Bible, practicing the piano, cleaning.... this is just a view of the hallway back to the bathroom and back bedroom. Whenever Ethan is home, the house seems to get seriously messy because I'd rather spend time with him then clean LOL But I was tired of the mess, so I spent about an hour vacuuming, sweeping, doing the dishes, cleaning the bathroom (toilet, sink, floor), and sweeping/organizing the back bedroom. It desperately needed it!
And then I went outside and cleaned out both of our cars. Mine was getting too much bottles of water in it and too much dust! Ethan's car looked like it was legit collecting dust, haha! I forgot to get before/after shots of his. I really wish I had, but here's an after shot of mine. MUCH better :)

And after that, I made two big bowls of pasta salad for both of our family cook outs today! :) I LOVE eating pasta salad AND making pasta salad hehe! I cooked the noodles while I was cleaning. We use the wheat kind because it's much healthier! :) Then I cut up cucumbers, yellow peppers, red peppers, and onions and threw those in there with some cheese. Bought some italian dressing for it as well! Yummy! I dropped the one off at Ethan's mom's house for today and the other one is packed up to take to my grandma's house! I'm so excited to see everyone! :)

(the pasta salad for both locations hehe!)

Then Ethan finally got off work hehe! I finished my paper due tomorrow, we watched "Why Did I Get Married" and we drove around the village and hung out with his brother til about 2AM haha! Yes, I'm worn out lol! I'm getting too old for that kind of stuff, haha!

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 180- May 29th

Ethan and I are starting to become regular ol' yard-salers hehe! We went out this morning and came across this house where they were fixin' to close up, so the lady sold me these 4 bags/purses for only $2. How can you beat that, you know? Amazing! :)

And then I came across her entire snow man collection... and for those of you who know my mother, this was a section of great importance haha! So, I bought her this:

I hope she loves it hehe! :)

Then Ethan and I went to Ace Hardware in Coshocton where Ethan bought a nice, big intertube: The River Run. He was so proud hehe! Then I went and bought a cheap one at Dollar General, haha! It's a nice lil' thing though... pink, my favorite color :) It has 2 drink holders... definitely works for me! Here's Ethan's tube:

And my tube:

And then we were off to go intertubin' with Carrie and Matt. Oh my gosh! We had so much fun, haha! We lost Ethan for a bit, I fell out to save my 7up bottle, Carrie and Matt were like 50,000 feet ahead of us, and I saved Carrie from hitting a branch, haha! All in all, it was a fun day :)

Then we came home, rested, and headed out to go Ghost Hunting... we had all the gear too, haha! Ethan had his hat, we had 3 way radios, and flashlights. We were ready!

Ethan and Matt at the schoolhouse:

Carrie and me in front of the old school house:

The old school house from a distance. Those lights are kinda creepy, huh?

And we ended the night with some dip'n' dots ice cream (and I, of course, had salt and vinegar chips since dairy products are a no-go) haha!

Cheers to Project 365!!
