31 Days of Adventure: Day 8

So, there are no pictures for this day of adventure, but it did involve epic garage sale-ing which resulted in a beach lounge chair for $2.00 and not a penny more!  And then there was a righteous 2 hour nap followed by chips and salsa and fish tacos.  I'd say Day 8 = Heck yes.

31 Days of Adventure: Day 7

My mom busts rhymes about tacos. What does your mom do?

How to save a garden.

Yeah, I know. We're cute. 

Oh, the confusion of it all!

Glamour Shots.  Keepin' it real.

31 Days of Adventure: Day 5

Looks like Adventure got over that little shy spell from yesterday because he was all up in my face all day today.  Must be feeling more comfortable now that we are getting to know each other better.

Today included a long lunch break due to Customer Service Week (!!), which allowed me enough time to go home for a bit and do some laundry and some puppy hugging.  I had a mucho productiv day at work, then afterwards, I speed erranded to get myself ready for a trip to Texas tomorrow.  I tell you it is not easy to get packing and cleaning and laundry and preparing done when your dog insists on doing this...

You know that tummy is just begging to be scratched.

Today was a win in adventureness! Tomorrow starts 5 days of adventure in the Lonestar State.

Standby for awesome...

31 Days of Adventure: Day 4

This whole adventure thing is turning out to be quite an interesting adventure in itself.  Today's adventure was feeling a bit shy for most of the day.  No matter how closely I looked and stopped to ponder, it just refused to show it's bashful little face. There were events and happenings, sure, but adventures?  Psssh.  Not even.

And you wouldn't even believe where that little sneaker turned up today.  On Twitter.  Right?!  Who would think to look on Twitter for an adventure?  But there it was all bright and beautiful staring back at me from the Blackberry while I waited in line at the grocery store.

Care to see it?

Love everything about this. #31daysofadventure on Twitpic

I have no words for the feelings I get when I look at this picture.  One of my very bestest is playing this adventure game with me this month, and these are her beautiful kids.  She posted this as her adventure today, and I realized how much I look forward to seeing what the day brought her.  I was on Twitter for the sole purpose of seeing if she posted anything.  I honestly felt excitement when I saw she did, and that's when I realized someone else's adventure was my own.  Not because I was physically there, but because my heart was invested in it, fully present and experiencing this moment.  Seeing this picture fills me with joy in ways that probably can't fully explained.  In it, I see her dreams realized in a son and daughter and know that they have the greatest Mom and Dad that God could have ever picked for them.  And because she is my soulfriend, her adventure is mine.

31 Days of Adventure: Day 3

Well, no pictures because no camera AND no phone on the same day.  But, I can tell you with my word pictures that the adventure of today began with a fat, rainbow-colored hot air balloon floating right above my office building.  It was like going to work at Oz or something.  You know, like, if Oz had hot air balloons or something.  I didnt' really think that all the way through, but you know what I'm saying.  So, hot air balloon!

Then, after getting my FREE breakfast for FREE breakfast day due to Customer Service Week(!), I found the tiniest grape ever in my FREE fruit.  Tiny! Grape! Adventure!
