Hello and welcome to my first week of Project Life! I've personally found Ali Edwards to be the biggest inspiration with documenting an entire year using this method, and am thrilled to finally be starting this fun project. So, let's get to it.
Ryan's friend (since they were kids) was visiting from San Diego this week. All the photos I took were from my camera phone as well as mostly being Instagrams. The two main activities I joined in on were a hike to the Twin Falls, a visit to Snoqualmie Falls, and a day trip to the EMP at Seattle Center. In addition to the two page protectors, I added in a coin pocket page for all the extra pics.
All the nature pics are from our visit to the falls. The Instagrams from the EMP are all from their horror exhibit (which we LOVED!), one pic from the guitar exhibit (also awesome....especially with the audio guide giving you the option to listen to each of the guitars being played), one pic of the Nirvana exhibit sign outside, Ryan and Andy outside the EMP with the mirrored wall behind them, my gluten free peach pie and ginger beer lunch from the mall at Seattle Center, and two pics of the Space Needle. There are also two pics from New Years Day when my Mom and sister came for visit to do some baby shopping (so fun!).
The zombie badge was a souvenir from the EMP as well as the member sticker I wore while visiting.
We went to a movie and saw Parental Guidance. It was so funny and heartwarming.....a great family movie (plus we love Billy Crystal). We all thoroughly enjoyed it.
One night we all sat down and watched a DVD I had gifted Ryan for Christmas called High Road to China. It's an 80s action, adventure movie with Tom Selleck where a Buddhist monk says, "The oxen are slow, but the earth is patient," which started an entire conversation about how the guys use to repeat that quote when they were kids. So of course it had to be added in ; )
I also threw in a pic taken from the car while driving Andy to the airport during the Seahawks game. The Space Needle was flying a #12 Seahawks flag, and they ended up winning their game, making it to the playoffs. Exciting memory.
During our hike to the Twin Falls, I listened to slacker satellite radio and the combination of hiking in the winter (there were even icicles), getting exercise, and listening to music gave me the best natural high. I was in heaven....skipping, and dancing along, enjoying the prettiest views. I wanted to make sure to document this, so I added a little extra text in the Instagram page pockets.
And I think that's pretty much it. Putting this spread together was fairly easy and not too time consuming, plus I know that once I get the hang of documenting this way the process will go even faster. Anyone else doing Project Life this year? XO
