"Shut the front door"

Day 9 for the picture day challenge, and today's assignment was "front door." Since my front door is boring, I have included images below of some much better ones!!! I love the look of a classic black door (especially on a big white house with black shutters to match), but sometimes it is fun to see the personality of a house through colorful front doors! So in the words of Rachel Zoe...."shut the front door!"

 (I love a red door! I am partial because in my first house we had a red door on a grey house!)

Catch Up

I really have no excuse for not posting lately. So today, I am playing catch up with my photo challenge.

Day 4 (A stranger)- I have to admit I did not take one- kinda creepy

Day 5 (10 am)
This is a picture of my desk at 10 from February 5th. This is a client file (case) I have been working on for a month now, my calculatorr, and my daily life saver coffee (I honestly have about 7-9 cups a day- don't judge!)

Day 6 (dinner)

This past Monday I made this unbelievable dish in my crock pot. It was BBQ pork tenderloin. Very simple:

A package of pork tenderloin (unfrozen)
BBQ rub
Favorite BBQ sauce 8oz
1 med. onion (chopped)
3 tpsn minced garlic

Place the 2 tenderloins in the crock pot and cover with the BBQ rub. Then add in your garlic and chopped onion. Finally pour in your BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 6-7 hours. Literally feel apart in my crock pot, it was sooo tender! Serve on a wheat bun with any side dish!

Day 7 (button)

This is a sweater from J.Crew that I wore to work yesterday. I paired it with a bright purple shirt from J.Crew as well. I love the detail of the gold around the black button. I wear this sweater all the time. A favorite for my work wardrobe.

Day 8 (sun)

Since it is rainy here in Nashville today, I decided to add a picture of a sunset from the other night. This is a picture of Mid-town Nashville from the parking deck of my building. The sunset was beautiful, so I took a picture. I love that this is something I walk out to as I am leaving my day of work!

"hands"- Day three

So for day three of the photo challenge, you are suppose to take a picture of hands. Well I decided to do that with a twist. I have included a photo of my puppy Harper (and her paws) as my day three photo. This is only when she was about 3 months old. She is now 6 months, and growing like a weed! No pun intended, but "hands down" best thing I have ever done for myself. She is truly a blessing, and I am so blessed to have that little face in my life! (I guess I am feeling a little sappy today.... )

I figure I should add on to my John Mayer post. In honor of my favorite song "NEON," I decided to add some images!!! Enjoy!

Day Two

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love John Mayer. I have to say, I am not a big music person to begin with. However, without a doubt, John Mayer is my favorite. This is one of my favorite quotes of all time, and just so happened to be my senior high school year book quote as well! This makes me think that there is more to life in the future, and it just takes some time to get there! These are my "words" for the day!

Day One

Day one is suppose to be a picture of "my view today." Therefore, I decided to take a picture of what my "view" was from my office this morning. I have a great view of downtown to my right, and then West End Nashville towards my left (picture not shown). I am using this instagram program now on my iPhone, so that is why that picture looks the way it does. This is has not been a very "pretty day" in Nashville, so that think the mood of the picture reflects that well! Until tomorrow...

New challenges

I wanted to take on a new challenge as we continue onward into the new year. Since January is ending, I thought it would be fun to start a project. I saw this on another blog, and decided for the month of February I would try it! This is a photo day challenge for each day of the month. The images will be personal to me, and therefore, a little scary to show at times! But... I think it will be fun as well. So tomorrow will start the first day of my new challenge!

Also, I found this image and thought it was great! These are things I always have trouble doing in my life. I am constantly a work in progress... so every now and then I need to focus more on this and less on the littler issues!
