#29 Water 7/18/12

Amy: Haha! Marko was telling us about a blog that had pictures of people in a horizontal position in the air.  This is my attempt! We were visiting my old roomie, Erin, and her husband, Jim, in PA.  They had a SALT water pool - AMAZING!

#28 8PM Local Time 7/11/12

#27 The Sky 7/4/12

Amy: This is the sky on July 4th! We were at a rooftop BBQ in Williamsburg.  Unfortunately, the fireworks were set off on the Hudson, not the East River, so they weren't as stunning as they used to be.  But, it was still a treat to be able to see them!

#26 Laundry 6/27/12

Amy: I'm thankful that this laundromat is open at 6AM and closes at 12AM.  However, this does mean that I may be doing laundry at all hours of the night, like today.  I cannot wait until I have a washing machine in my building or in my apt...maybe in Spain?!

#25 Art 6/20/12

Amy: Hope II by Gustav Klimt.  Oil, gold, and platinum on canvas.  Amazing! One of my favorites.  Took this while at the MOMA when Sharie, my long time friend from college was visiting NYC.  I hope to at least get a print of this one day.

#24 Key Ring 6/13/12

Amy: Sofija, Marko's dear friend from home, gave this to me when we all visited Graz, Austria in the winter of 2009.  It's pretty sturdy, more so than some of the others ones I've had over the years.  It reminds me of her and our dear family and friends who are abroad that we don't get to see often.

#23 Love 6/6/12

Amy: This is a dinner that I love (shrimp scampi, rice, and greens with pumpkin seed oil) eaten with a man who I love.  I love when we eat together, which is often.  Of course, Marko cooks!

#21 Brushing My Teeth

Cassie: This is my work toothbrush. I don't do it often, but sometimes you really need to brush your teeth after lunch. It was pretty common for people to brush their teeth when I worked in NYC, but down south I have gotten some strange looks in the women's bathroom.

Amy: My pink toothbrush. Thank goodness they never asked Marko and I to name the color of each other's toothbrushes when interviewing for his green card.  I don't think I could have done it correctly, let alone name my own toothbrush's color, and I see it everyday, twice a day!  P.S. I like Colgate better.

#20 Green

Amy: Greens in a green bowl with Pumpkin Seed Oil.  Yum! Pumpkin seed oil, my new addiction. It's ever flowing in Austria and much more affordable there than here.  I was so excited when our friends brought us two bottles!! I've been putting it on everything...You must try some!!

Cassie: Green is my favorite color (singing in the Aerosmith 'Pink' song)! So I def had a hard time trying to think of what green picture I would do for this post. Do I take a picture of my closet, with my many many green shirts and even  a pair of pants!?!? But these came in the mail last week. I designed them with my mom when we went to Palm Beach this spring. Note that these are NOT Jack Rogers they are the original Palm Beach Sandal that was originally created for Jackie O in the 60's ( It was a wonderful weekend and I will always be able to think of it when I look at these sandals!

#19 Smile

Amy: Smile! I am SMILING since I passed my licensing exam!! This is a picture from my celebratory dinner with work friends - Martine, Edtya, Adrienne, & Sari.  One of my first and few social events since finishing.  They took me for tapas, fitting isn't it?  

Cassie: This was my first time to the NC Zoo, and it was a lot of fun! I loved walking around for hours watching the animals. We got really lucky to see several during feeding time so they were moving around. I was pretty proud of my yoga chatarunga, not laying on the ground while getting eaten by the dino!

#18 Grocery Store

Cassie: I am a little late to the trend, but I am loving greek yogurt lately. It's my go to afternoon snack,which def helps for the after work workout. I have determined that the kind I like the best is the Foodlion brand. The honey and the bluberry are my faves!
Amy: Marko and I have had a Costco membership for years, but this is the first time I've gotten my own card! Moving up in the world. Well I guess it's only a temporary one - their machine wasn't working yesterday :( We've stocked up on food because we have 4 friends staying with us from Austria! and, that makes for A LOT of food.  We just have to find enough room for it all...and them!
