#9 Headline

Amy: Although I thought I'd take a picture of the Metro newspaper this morning for the blog, there were none. I thought, "This is strange. No newspaper on Leap Day!" But, then, I got on the train and my headline was clear as day - DON'T GET ON THIS TRAIN CAR! haha! A homeless man had made the car his home, and shat all over the place. no joke. Sh*t everywhere. And, there was no where for us to go, but endure it. Oh the irony.

Karen: EXTRA! EXTRA! Read All About It!!! The Newsboys are coming to Broadway!!! Nothing makes me more excited than this! I have always been a fan of the old Disney movie Newsies starring Christian Bale (although he hates being associated with the film) It's such a great tale with amazing dance scenes! I cannot wait to get tickets to see the show- I'll probably go with my mom since Tim is A. not a fan of the movie and B. not a fan of Broadway- what did I ever see in him??? HAHA JK. It'll be a fun excuse for a girls date anyway.

Cassie: I sit in front of a computer all day, but there weren't any headlines that grabbed my attention today to add to this post. There is so much news all the time everywhere and most of it is negative. I like to keep this blog positive and Jeremy thought this would be funny...for him as usual!

#8 - Refrigerator

Karen: I spend more time in this fridge than I do in the one at home. Here's the walk-in at my current job, and Alex who is so happy to be organizing and putting away the days order. :)Not as big as all the other full service restaurants I've worked at, but it's still freaking cold and a pain in the butt to have to go in!

Amy: The inside and outside of my fridge. The outside looks a bit better, as the inside has a merger amount of a food. The inside is stocked with eggs, GF bread, Marko's pizza leftovers, and tons of Yuengling. The outside is covered with pictures of BABIES and a few drawings from my niece Hannah. Just got a new save the date magnet for Annie & Bill's wedding 11-24-12!

Cassie: Quiz: What's new on the fridge from the 2010 post!???!?!? If someone finally comments with a guess you will get a prize....seriously :) And I promise there is something new.

#7 - Weather

Karen: We have been very lucky this winter with not too much of that 4 letter word. However we have gotten a bit of yucky rainy days. Sometimes I would rather snow, because at least its pretty to look at! This picture always makes me laugh. For those of you that know my mother, you know she doesn't like to drive in inclement weather....however, As Hurricane Irene was approaching, one of her best friends had planned a party for the evening, and as much as she doesn't like to drive in the rain, she doesn't like to miss a party. Needless to say she braved the storm (And Tim personifying it) and we had a grand old time at the party!

Cassie: I have to admit that I didn't take this picture today, but there are many trees currently in bloom due to the warm weather we have been having lately. Today got into the high 60's. The birds were chirping again this morning and I am convinced that Puxatony Phil was wrong. I love NC weather because you get to experience all of the seasons, but every now and then you will get a warm day with blue skies. Def helps me get through the winter blues. I didn't realize how much the weather affected me until I moved back home to NJ after I graduated college. I swear there were gray skies from October to about winter blues!

Amy: Oh let it snow!!! I'm dying for a white winter wonderland...and a snow day! I can't handle these moderately cold temperatures with RAIN! Reminds me of New Zealand and we all know how I returned from that trip... with celiac disease and a fake tan!

#6 - Coffee Break

Lauren: Coffee break??!! Who needs coffee when you can drink hot lemon water? I like to pretend that I'm a coffee drinker, and do prefer a sip or two of Starbuck's Pike Place or an Americano, with a little skim and 1/2 a Splenda; however, anyone that knows me has long since realized that I have yet to drink an entire cup of coffee when ordered. And so, I stick to what tastes best, and what me and this little baby of mine are craving: water with lemon, and a side of lemon.

Cassie: With a humpday topic of Coffee Break, people that know me knew that there would be a picture of my Starbucks cup for this post. This morning I used my Free Birthday drink from Starbucks and got a nice cold venti iced coffee. That wasn't my only Starbucks birthday gift...Allison you ROCK! I mean going to Starbucks isn't something I do every morning, but it's my treat. I don't get my hair or nails done really so I don't feel too bad about my addiction....

Amy: I take my coffee break Vietnamese style, well except for the American travel mug! We bought this dark roasted coffee while in Ho Chi Minh City, paroosing the chinatown market. It is delicious, but very strong! I don't have it every morning because then we will run out of it quickly, and it takes some time to drip. So, it is only for special occasions. Today is just that day!

Karen: I seem to be living everyone's coffee break these days! I am now working my new job at Panera... Ok so most of it is lunch break- not as much coffee. But we do have an espresso machine. I was training in the barista position today and was excited for the excitement from what I had experienced during my college days as a barista for Starbucks in downtown Boston. much for that. I quickly learned that this is one of the slowest positions at Panera! So much for an exciting day- but at least I didn't real a sweat!!

#5 - A Cloud

Amy: This is the view from our back patio - and the clouds from the other evening. Marko took this picture. The clouds looked eerie, and he realized how much he'll miss our view when we move. I agree. It's not a very nice view by anyone's standards, but it's a familiar one. Many good memories were made and pictures taken with this background!

Lauren: When I woke up this morning it was cold, foggy, and somewhat dreary on the drive to work. Fast-forward to the end of my day, and this is the beautiful sky that greeted me on my way home. Yes, perhaps it wasn't the best idea to take this picture from my iPhone while driving on the Mass Pike; however, I knew it would be dark by the time I arrived home! The perfect ending to a very long day...

Cassie: I love night clouds.

Karen: I know I'm late, but there were no clouds by me on Wednesday and then yesterday got away from me. These are the clouds I just flew through though to meet up with Cassie and Lauren! Looking forward to a great weekend!
