Photo of the Day: New Ride

I’m excited to say that my husband and I got a new car this weekend! (Notice that symbol in the bottom-left corner of the photo – the best part about it!) Can you figure out what we bought from this photo?


Project 52 Week 10: Bucket List

Someday … I will own a Porsche like this. Ok, maybe not. I don’t think I’ll ever be rich, unless I win the lottery. And I’m not winning the lottery unless I find the winning ticket on the ground. Even if I had the money, I probably wouldn’t spend it on a flashy car. But if someone wanted to give me a sports car, this is definitely the one I’d pick.

Day 70: Traffic Jam

Can you see the long line of cars behind us in the rear view mirror? Rush hour in downtown Kansas City was a little busier than normal this week with the Big 12 Tournament at the Sprint Center. I can’t complain though, because it was estimated to bring $14 million to the city. Plus – what a beautiful day to have the window down!

Day 19 & 20: Double snow, double fun?

I’m going out of town for a few days, so I’m posting both yesterday and today’s photos. I’ll post this weekend’s photos when I return.

After a slow and slick drive home from work yesterday afternoon in the rapidly accumulating snow, I attempted to capture the falling snow in a photograph.

About 7 inches of snow later, I woke up early this morning to find that work was closed. I planned to help Jerod get ready for work so he could get an early start on the road. I started his car, but instead of helping him clean it, I just took pictures as he worked away in the cold. So much for double the fun! Spring, I’m not so patiently awaiting you!
