Photo-an-Hour

This is a post I've wanted to do for the longest time. 

So long, it even became the name for one of my eight daily wake-me-up alarms that continues to get snoozed and forgotten. In the graveyard with all of my "Wake up!", "Work out", "Today you need to wash your hair", "Okay now you need to blame traffic for your lateness" alarms. 

That got old, so one morning I got the I-Will Power to take the photo an hour. 

The day I chose was Wednesday, March 4th - it's now March 17th - since it was one of my very important work meeting days at the start of the month. 

5:30 - My view when I wake up, the Christmas lights that have been up for two years.
6:30 - Dress for success and #selfieoritneverhappened
7:30 - My weekday savior during Lent. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Mr. Coffee. 
8:30 - Yes, my new she-crush Alyssa announced that she joined Snapchat.


Derp, I missed a few hours in the midst of my super-busy important work day. Thank goodness I was doing photo-an-hour because that's where the terrifying or amazing bird photo came from. You can thank me for cutting photos out such as the office printer and a close-up of the Red Vines tub in my office.

11:30 - A gorgeous day and a terrifying symbol that Spring has sprung.
12:30 - Drink. Drink. Drink. My 64oz work water growler.
2:30 - These weren't consumed on this day, but they were consumed once and now they're office art.


My work presentation and craziness went well, so the rest of the afternoon was spent wrapping things up, answering any follow-up questions and of course scheduling a fun yoga class to celebrate.

3:30 - "Yes We Can" with the Road Runner is my desktop background. It's supposed to be funny.
4:30 - In the car selfie! Off work, kicked butt on my hard day and my hair is still doing it!
5:30 - "Get excited!" says ClassPass. Yoga class with scary-advanced handstand practice!


Disclaimer: Two of these photos were not taken March 4th, I just failed at this prompt and had to show something. Didn't I?

7:30pm - Trader Joe's Crunchy Salted PB with Flax & Chia Seeds. Yes.
Not actually 3/4 #1 - Thanks, mailman. Nothing to see here. Just my year's supply of contact lenses.
Not actually 3/4 #2 - Brand new lovely mural outside of my adorable coffee shop. 


Come on ladies, I know you can do better than me at this prompt. Show us what you've got. Yes I know your lives are more exciting than mine!
