September Photo-a-Day Snapshots

We tackled September's Photo-a-Day challenge a little differently. We've both had so much going on this past month that we just decided to mix up all of our photos and make one big post at the end of the month. So without further adieu, here's a little bit of what September brought us (the good times and the bad)...

Day 1 -- You, Now
Mendi:  Packing for our trip to San Francisco.

Day 2 -- Father
Jayme:  A pic of my grandfather and the pocket watch that was his fathers, but handed down to me.

Day 3 -- Far Away
Mendi:  The night before we flew out. Taking one last look at our atlas before it got packed in our suitcase. From east coast to west coast the next day.

Day 4 -- In My Mailbox/Postbox
Mendi:  Not exactly in my mailbox, but instead on my TV on the plane headed to San Francisco. A Flipping Out marathon is a perfectly good way to spend four hours. Love me some Jeffrey Lewis.

Day 5 -- Bright
Mendi:  One of the many "bright" sides of our vacation...The Palace of Fine Arts...so gorgeous!!!

Day 6 -- Every Day
Mendi:  I could eat chips & guac every day, so that counts, right?! Our appetizer at Copita in Sausalito.

Day 7 -- Natural
Whoops. Somehow we both managed to let this day slip by us.

Day 8 -- At Night
Mendi:  The view from our room at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental in Nob Hill.

Day 9 -- Something You Do Most Weekends
Mendi:  I definitely hit the gym atleast once per weekend, sometimes twice.

Day 10 -- Black + White
Mendi:  A funny little t-shirt that I came across in a shop in Monterey, CA. Immediately made me think of Jayme.

Day 11 -- Hero
This one was a toughie, so we took a pass on it.

Day 12 -- Together
Mendi:  One last snapshot from our vacation...an amazing time together in Pebble Beach along 17 Mile Drive.

Day 13 -- Table
Jayme:  Just a view of my sofa table.

Day 14 -- Favorite
Mendi:  My favorite time of day. My girls getting settled in to go night-night. And yes, Zoey has lost her mind, but that's a fairly normal position for her to sleep in.

Day 15 -- First Thing You See
Mendi:  A lavender sunrise from my bedroom window.

Day 16 -- Strange
Jayme:  I thought this shirt from Target was strange. Maybe it's because we live in VA and it's almost hunting season and this shirt just makes me sad.

Day 17 -- In My Fridge
Mendi:  I feel like this is an episode of MTV Cribs. 

Day 18 -- Price
Jayme:  Scored a great deal on a pair of purple jeans at Target!

Day 19 -- Underneath
Jayme:  Some of the primers that I use to go underneath my makeup.

Day 20 -- Man-Made
Mendi:  A riddling rack made by Dad that hangs in my dining room. A fairly easy and inexpensive DIY that would cost you $250 if you purchased one from somewhere like Pottery Barn.

Day 21 -- Sometimes
Jayme:  Sometimes Cooper stalks the neighbors while waiting for his daddy to come home.

Day 22 -- Up
Jayme:  Driving to Mendi's on a gorgeous Saturday to do some filming. This is out of my sun roof.

Day 23 -- Before Bedtime
Jayme:  Guess what I did?? I saw the material girl herself! Some fabulous girls and I went to the Madonna concert in DC and it was a night I'll never forget! Completes my childhood!

Day 24 -- 3 Things
Jayme:  3 things I wore to the Madonna concert: Butter LONDON's West End Wonderland glitter nail polish, a single hot pink mesh glove and a single black lace glove. I was channeling old school MDNA!

Day 25 -- Frame
Jayme:  Some frames of old records that hang in my hallway.

Day 26 -- Near
Mendi:  I'm not quite ready to talk about this yet, so please bear with me here. We sent our 9-year-old Lab, Nugget, to Heaven on Saturday, the 29th. In her final few days I never left her side. We're devastated, our hearts are left crushed to tiny bits and we miss her more than words can express.

Day 27 -- Love/Hate

Jayme:  I sometimes hate that I love Diet Coke so much!

Day 28 -- A Good Thing
Jayme:  A lit candle in a house full of puppies is always a good thing.

Day 29 -- Errand
What?!? We missed another one. Whomp, whomp.

Day 30 -- You, Then

Jayme:  The view from my hotel room exactly three years ago when were in Mexico for our wedding.

  4. M - I am so sorry about your lab. Please know I am thinking of you and I have been there. I lose my Lady (golden retriever) of 14 years in summer of 2009. M and I got Lily that Thanksgiving, but I still tear up thinking of her. It is so hard. Here was an entry I wrote about it: http://thewetnose.blogspot.com/2009/08/guest-blogger.html. Please share if you want. I know things are never ever the same after you lose a friend.
