a photo an hour

On Tuesday, I got my snow day! Only it wasn't very snowy. I didn't see a single flake by my house but I mostly didn't mind because I stayed in my pajamas all day. I also remembered to take a photo an hour so I could join Meg's link-up! The good news is there are no selfies because I was a mess all day; the bad news is that what I was eating or drinking was usually the easiest thing to photograph. I also like how Meg's black and white pics always look so I decided to follow her lead on that, too. But, food doesn't always look good in black and white and since I put my camera in that mode, that's all I have to show. Lesson learned - edit them to black and white next time!

9:00: French Press is the best way to start a snow day
10:00: Pumpkin muffins with pumpkin butter in a snowflake wrapper
11:00: Andrew played Madden, I played on Twitter and Blogs
12:00: Bauer likes to lay on the shelf on the coffee table and play with his toy

1:00: Watching the pot and it took forever to boil
2:00: Easy, late lunch - Annie's Pasta and Chicken Fingers (though my husband says it looks like something else...)
3:00: Binge-watching the final season of Dexter
4:00: Bauer snuggled on the couch with us

5:00: Out of the house to check the mail and saw icicles on the roof
6:00: Dinner - Chicken Lettuce Wraps (not cute)
7:00: My new iron tells me when it's hot enough (and still watching Dexter)
8:00: Hot chocolate with a two-bite brownie garnish. My husband is precious.

9:00: Previewing the pics and proofreading yesterday's blog post
10:00: Ready for bed, but this guy was in my spot kicking himself in the head. Cats are weird.

And now I can remember just how anti-climactic the second snow day of 2014 was!

Doing this project was a great reminder of how much I like Instagram. Am I following you yet? I need some new accounts to follow. I love pics of food, pets, non-selfies, and things about where you live. My dislikes are dead animals, all babies all the time, screenshots, and excessive polar watch photos. I feel like I just wrote a personal ad! Any suggestions for good people to follow on Instagram? If you want more pics of #catbauer, I'm eatdrinklauren.

  3. LOL at your personal instagram ad. Funny enough, I totally didn't do black and white this time! I felt like mixing it up! So did you finish the series finale of Dexter? We must discuss once you do...

    Thanks for linking up with us!!!

  4. You lucky girl, getting a snow day with no actual snow! Looks like a relaxing day...your pet pictures are too cute. And I love your Instagram list. I'm with you for most of it haha.

  5. Bauer is just too cute! Love the instagram ad, hope I am still making the cute. I try to limit my Polar watch pics and selfies. :)

  6. I love the idea of a photo an hour. Does the do that linkup often or was it a one-off?

    hahaha re: instagram personal ad.

    MWF ISO pics of pets, food, coffee, sky, city scapes, purchases, cool things. Constant babies, sweaty selfies and weirdos need not apply.

    That would be mine.

  7. That picture of Bauer is amazing! I honestly can't believe that we went through our entire snow day yesterday without a second of netflix of madden for either of us! J did try to watch South Park but I put a hard stop on that. I am impressed with your new iron. We got three irons for our wedding--they're all still in their original boxes.

  8. Dang your cat knows how to work the camera! And I am still laughing at the Instagram Personal Ad. We never got any ice down in Clear Lake.

  9. Dexter and pumpkin muffins?!?! That sounds like an awesome way to spend the day (esp. in pj's lol) Don't you wish we had more snow days so you could have this more? I want more snow days lol

  10. I am always looking for new bloggers to follow on IG and bloglovin. My username there is @mrsfry26 I am visiting today from the linkup. Your day would be very similar to my friday-sunday, lots of pictures of food! My cat is super playful in the mornings too and runs around the house like a lunatic. He thinks he is part jaguar or something. I love your snow day pictures!

  11. A non-snow snow day? I'd love it! My work doesn't even give snow days when we have tons of snow. Blah!

  12. This is so neat! I need to put brownie garnishes on my hot chocolate!

  17. Most of my hours look the same unfortunately so I don't think I'd excel at this project even though it looks like a lot of fun.

  18. I love that you did black and white too (and yes food is weird in black and white!)
    I also really enjoy your instagram personal ad :)

    Happy Thursday!

  19. Your day looks relaxing! I love it. Yay for snow days! I think we follow each other on instagram..

  20. Stopping by from the linkup... :) I could go for a lazy snow day!

  21. Ok so I am dying to know...did you finish Dexter?! If you did, let me know what you thought! I'd love to discuss.

    PS I can't believe you got 2 snow days. I got 0. So bitter, so jealous...

    Also I can't guarantee that I'll quit with the selfies, but I'd like to think that I don't post them TOO often. You'd tell me if I was annoying, right?!

  22. I love this idea! If you don't mind I might steal it for a future post if I run out of things to blog about! I would be afraid of what I was doing when I needed to take a picture though, ha! Your cat is to freaking cute!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm going to steal Bauer so he can teach Fancy to pose. :) Hey, hey look at those wraps! Were they good? I love that our snow dance worked for both of us! Is this link up happening again? Looks like fun!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The cat is cracking me up. Sooooo I asked for a snow day, and boy did I get one. Maybe next time I wont dance as hard!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love this idea! I'm totally going to steal this for some future post.

  26. Why don't we live closer?! I'd totally eat some pumpkin muffins and binge watch Dexter with you. I just started season 4, which everyone keeps telling me who has seen already, is the best season of the whole series.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The chicken fingers....oh man! Hahaha! I love your IG personal ad - just growing your brand, and sometimes we advertise for ourselves! And now that I know Bauer is named after Jack...I wanna squeeze him and call him Jackie B! Don't ask my why, I don't know.

    ReplyDelete
  28. what a fun idea. I will need to do this one day when i'm not working since a pic an hour while i'm at work would be suuuuuuper boring ha.

  29. Did you finish Dexter? Also, scrolling through quickly the picture of Dexter freaked me out, for a second I was like OMG this girl's husband looks exactly like Dexter :) Good shot of the tv! Have to love cats...we just bought a tempur pedic and our cat totally thinks it is his new bed... he spends like 80% of his time on our bed now.

  30. We got loooots of snow yesterday/today. Up to a foot, I bet! Ugh. I'm bummed when other people get true snow days and I have to have a snow day at home and work. So I've worked for the past two days. The good part is I lounged around in PJs yesterday and today. Plus, I've had shows playing on my tablet while I've worked, which is fun. David and I are off to the office tomorrow -- we're getting cabin fever a bit.
