Reason #063 to come to Washington: Best friends that bring their fiances home for the weekend and have you take their engagement pictures in down town Seattle for them.
Reason #063 to come to Indiana: Cake in a mug St. Patty's Day treats from my VT. If you can't get your drink on, might as well get your cake on. Just don't let your momma steal it, right Katie?

Day Fifty-Nine.

Reason #062 to come to Washington: Nannying. This is one of the little boys I nanny a few days a week. He's pretty precious.

There'll Be Some Changes Made

So Amy and I actually have lives. (I know, surprise! Right?) A photo every day is a lot of work! So we've decided to change this to a weekly reason to come photo posted every Sunday. 

We love you and we'll see you in April!


P.S. 10 points to whoever can figure out what song the title of this post is from. (Hint: it has nothing to do with any indie rock. Possibly jazz though.)

Day Fifty-Six.

Reason #059 to come to Washington: Jeans from Express. Express is my favorite place to get jeans. They're pretty decently priced for how good of jeans they are. And I just love them.

Reason #059 to come to Indiana: Sonoro(us). For fans of Explosions in the Sky.

Sunday, February 8, 2009

Day Fifty-Five.

Reason #058 to come to Washington: Art! I made this print last summer and my dad just bought a frame for it and put it, along with 2 other prints by me on the wall. It's a great feeling when someone puts your art on their wall.

Reason #058 to come to Indiana: Beacons aka Mason Hunter. For fans of Animal Collective.

Day Fifty-Four.

Reason #057 to come to Washington: Dicks cheeseburgers. And ice cream. And french fries. Delicious and oh so cheap. I always get a cheeseburger, fried and a chocolate shake and spend less than $6!!!
Reason #057 to come to Indiana: Going to Valparaiso to visit friends that you've had since first grade. This is Emily Burman. And yes. All we do in Indiana is eat food.

Day Fifty-Three.

Reason #056 to come to Washington: Seattle Waterfront. Beautiful and lots to do. From feeding the Seagulls by holding a french fry out as they swoop down to eat it to curiosity shops to arcades to aquariums, there's never a dull moment.
Reason #053 and #054 to come to Indiana: Semi legitimate fashion shows for a growing downtown. Buildings with beautiful architecture like many of the buildings downtown.

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Day Fifty-Two.

Reason #055 to come to Washington: Red Light Vintage. A HUGE two story tall vintage clothing store. What more could you ask for?

Reason #054 to come to Indiana: Deciding to eat dinner at the first restaurant we could find that we had never heard of before. It ended up being a pizza buffet. Katie and I had three pieces of pizza, a salad, and two slices of dessert pizza. Each. In 20 minutes.

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

Day Fifty-One.

Reason #054 to come to Washington: Street art. I think it speaks for itself.
Reason #053 to come to Indiana: The Arcola Tractor Pulls. Every July the barely-a-town of Arcola becomes over populated with America's finest to witness one of the classiest sports around--tractor pulling. Bonus: I live right next door so we can't sleep for a whole weekend. I've trespassed many a time to take photos in the tractor pulls during its off season.

Day Fifty.

Reason #053 to come to Washington: Crazy drain pipes that hold plants! Not sure if they were designed that way but whatever. It's still cool. Also, did you know you can still turn left onto a one way street even if there's a red light. I think that's their only redeeming quality.
Reason #052 to come to Indiana: Busy days mean no time for bed making.

Day Forty-Nine.

Reason #052 to come to Washington: The gum wall located in an alleyway in Seattle. There is gum all up and down the wall. People have even written things out with their gum on the wall. It is fantastically disgusting.

Reason #051 to come to Indiana: Shopping trips that make you late for FHE. But at least Katie Crabill was with me. And I didn't get pulled over.

Sunday, February 1, 2009

Day Forty-Eight

Reason #051 to come to Washington: Books! My dad has a fantastic collection of books. Topic range anywhere from art, design, religion, politics, science fiction, fantasy, etc. He has many classics, books by Jack Kerouac, Philip K. Dick, Ayn Rand, Roald Dahl, the list goes on.
Reason #050 to come to Indiana: Sometimes you get pulled over for your first time. Even though you were going 14 over the speed limit, the officer lets you off with a warning. Possibly because you told him you were late for church. Definitely because he's a nice guy.

Day Forty-Seven.

Reason #050 to come to Washington: Pike Place Market. These are the famous fish throwing guys. I don't think I've ever personally witnessed them throwing fish (apparently someone has to buy a fish first) but I've seen videos and it's pretty cool.

Reasons #049 to come to Indiana: Stuff to warm your bones.

Friday, January 30, 2009

Day Forty-Six.

Reason #049 to come to Washington: UW Hockey games. Who can resist ice skating, hitting stuff with sticks and blood all at once? Certainly not me!

Reason #048 to come to Indiana: Legit juice making.

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Day Forty-Five.

Reason #048 to come to Washington: Homemade pizza. Since I don't go out much at night because 1. I have no friends and 2: I work early in the morning (7 am) and try not to stay out late, I cook at night instead! Tonight I made pizza.
Reason #047 to come to Indiana: Finding things that you thought you lost on planes. Like mp3 players.

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

Day Forty-Four.

Reason #047 to come to Washington: Wii Fit! I tried it out today and did some yoga which was cool. I felt all balanced and stuff. I also pretended to hula hoop. At the end I had 5 pretend hula hoops going at a time! But then I had to run in place and try to not pass the little guy on the screen. That was kinda dumb

Reason #046 to come to Indiana: Being so busy that you don't have time to take a legit picture. Let alone get on the Internets to upload it. I really wish I could get home before 11 pm some time this week.

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Day Forty-Three.

Reason #046 to come to Washington: Letters from Harper Casimiro. I love her. We're pen pals now :)
Reason #045 to come to Indiana: Sometimes you get in car accidents with another car for the first time. It's a long story. When I told the guy I was really sorry he said, "The Lord is merciful." Then he walked back to the house he was helping build. 

Day Forty-Two.

Reason #045 to come to Washington: Large empty rooms. My parents are downsizing in order to move. This room used to hold a nice couch and our tv and all that jazz. We no longer have a couch (no worries, we've got plenty of chairs!) and our tv is upstairs. If you come visit, we'll throw a couple of comfy mattress pads on the floor and you can have this room all to yourself!
Reason #044 to come to Indiana: Making packages for friends who are at college. Especially friends named Ashley Finucan who are amazing. A mix and a card are definitely deserved when your almost 19 year old dog has to be put to sleep and you didn't get to say goodbye, the guy you're dating decides he can't do "long distance" relationships, and your freshman year as a nursing student at Ball State is kicking your trash. Love you, Ashez.

Day Forty-One.

Reason #044 to come to Washington: Fun times with Josh Alvarez and Michelle Conlon. Both are actually BYU-I students. Josh is off track and Michelle is making life decisions. She is also my aunt! But she's only 26. I love these kids.

Reason #043 to come to Indiana: Etch-A-Sketches love Indiana. You should, too.

Saturday, January 24, 2009

Day Forty.

Reason #043 to come to Washington: Late night slurpee runs with Carrie McGrath, a previous Idaho Falls resident that has come to find the Seattle scene much preferable. Slurpees are really great. Especially when you get creative and mix them.
Reason #042 to come to Indiana: Vertical blinds. Finally. The cat better not tear these up like he did the horizontal ones.

Friday, January 23, 2009

Day Thirty-Nine.

Reason #042 to come to Washington: National Pie Day with Kari Patterson. I don't know if you knew this but today was national pie day. Kari and I made some delicious pies and had a little party at a park in Seattle. It was great. You can't ever go wrong with pie. Or parks.

Reason #041 to come to Indiana: Vintage pinball machines. My family has had this for a long time. I don't know where it came from.

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Day Thirty-Eight.

Reason #041 to come to Washington: Charlie. I nanny a little boy and he has a dog. He just go neutered and has to wear this cone things. Poor lil' guy! But he's a great dog and always ready to play.

Reason #040 to come to Indiana: Chip granola. More than likely it's not very healthy, but delicious+filling=great way to start the day. Also good for lunch, dinner, fourth meal, and snackage.

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Day Thirty-Seven.

Reason #040 to come to Washington: Mike's Grill. A delicious place to eat with your mom on her lunch break in Snoqualmie Ridge. Breakfast is served until 2pm!

Reason #039 to come to Indiana: Visits to my alma mater. I will always bleed Carroll Charger blue, even though Carroll has been said to be a little red. Please note that the port-a-potties are for construction traffic only.
