So, it's two pictures instead of one. But I don't know how I was supposed to do before/after all in one picture. Shout out to Meagan for the delicious recipe!

Check it. I'm double dipping.

Clouds AND cars.

Lovely view from my office window as traffic gets heavy.
Awesome time to work only blocks from the KFC YUM Center. #MarchMadness

Photo of the Day Challenge Day 7: Something You Wore

I love, love, love this necklace.

On a trip to Paris a few years ago, I bought a beautiful little Fleur de Lis necklace from the gift shop at Saint Chapelle. Not only is the Fleur de Lis a prominent symbol in Paris, but it's EVERYWHERE in Louisville. Unfortunately, I lost that necklace and on another trip to Paris and Saint Chapelle, I was unable to find one that was as perfect as the original.

Luckily, one of my good friends was in town visiting last year and I took her to a local store that sold all things Kentucky. They had a beautiful selection of Fleur de Lis necklaces, including one that very closely resembled the size, color, and shape of my original. She was so sweet to buy me this necklace and I think of her every day that I wear it.

On a scale of 1-10, how much do I love watching the news?

About a 17.5.

Photo of the Day Challenge Day 5: Smile

I'd like to take this moment to thank Aunt Jemima for the delicious pancakes and syrup I enjoyed yesterday morning.

IHOP meal for two: $20+, 700+ calorie
Pancakes at home for two: Less than $4, 300ish calories

Look, I AM blogging about saving money and calories!

Photo of the Day Challenge Day 4: Bedside

Still working on busting out my nice camera. Until then, my bedside with picture of my sorority sisters, my biological sisters, candle, rosary, and some career and relationship self-help books that have barely been touched.

Photo Challenge Day 3: Your Neighborhood

Where is day two, you ask? I had every intention of photographing the delicious Pink Lady apple I packed in my lunch, but as the weather gained momentum during work hours, I was more interested in monitoring the local radar for the destruction that was to come.

Though I've lived in the Louisville area for the past 4 years and grew up in Texas, my family is from Southern Indiana (and I spent 4 years in college there) so I've always considered it home.

This morning, while I'm not able to make it up there as crews are asking people to stay away for the time being, I'll share other people's photos of my "neighborhood".

What's left of Marysville, Indiana. I was on the phone with my dad while he was looking out his back door as the tornado swept over the town that is basically his backyard. Fortunately, his home was spared.

What's left of the school building in Marysville. My dad actually attended kindergarten here.

Photo Challenge Day 1: Up

Obviously, I have to start this challenge with a photo of Bentley. Since this blog is about my dog, and all.

Classy, I know. That leg lift? That's pure talent right there.
