Fall Dog Frolick

By in Family, Main, Pictures

A few weeks ago, I had the best time ever out in the back yard on a Saturday morning, playing in the leaves with the dogs while Jim was still asleep. These dogs LOVE the colder weather, and I can already see them getting geared up for the snow… Mae was just a total nut, [...]

A Difficult Week

By in Family, Main, NaNoWriMo, Pictures

Things to be grateful for this week: 1. My mother had surgery and is okay. 2. Jim wrecked his dad’s motorcycle and is okay. 3. This week at work was awful, and it’s over. 4. Writing meeting today with friends was a great outlet. :) 5. I was not on call this week. 6. My [...]

Happy Halloween! Trick-or-Treat Recap

By in Main, Pictures

This year was my first year handing out candy for trick or treat and I’m thinking we were DEFinitely the cool house on our street, with glow sticks and all fun size (NOT mini) bars. Things I’ve learned: 1. Take little kids in a wagon, because they’re going to tucker out. I saw a LOT [...]

Novel Writing, Halloween, Prius, NYCC

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Pictures

I’ve been a busy Brandice lately, so here on the highlights from recent weeks. – Nanowrimo planning is well under way, and today’s kickoff party in the Canton region (of which, I am the Municipal Liaison for the 8th year in a row) is going to ROCK. I’m really excited about my 9th Nanowrimo, hopefully [...]

Post-Marathon Running Bug

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

Feels so weird to have completed the 5-person relay for the Akron Marathon almost a full month ago… That was SUCH a great day, and it gave me a serious bug for longer running, probably an eventual half marathon next year. I keep forgetting to post a couple choice shots, so here you go. We [...]

Akron Marathon Recap

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

We did it! Cumulative chip time of 5 hours, 5 minutes, and 59 seconds, and we all completed our portions faster than we thought we would! It was pretty awesome to not only finish, but to surpass our own expectation. I was really starting to freak out last week… I’d been sick with a cold [...]

Wedding, and a Marathon Coming Up!

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

Great times were had this weekend at a wedding in Youngstown. The drink below, among other drinks, contributed to the great times… Always fun to see college friends! I’m just starting to get over being sick for the past week and I’ve got to get re-hydrated, back to full health and ready for the Akron [...]

Bean Brain

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Various family members assured my brother Max on Labor Day that we would give him varying amounts of cash if he ate all of those green beans. I even helped him at one point, but he was thoroughly unsuccessful. What a little nerdy ham, posing mid-nosh… He’s going to be quite a handful, that one.

Cleveland vs Minnesota Game

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Recently, while our Minnesota cousins were in town, the family went to see the Twins play the Indians. Sadly, the Indians lost, but a we had a great time and Jim and the boys talked trains and highway construction and other complicated topics the entire way to Cleveland and back. It was beautiful weather, so [...]

Summer Ride

By in Family, Main, Pictures

I had my FIRST motorcycle ride of the year this past weekend (I know! what have I been waiting for, for pete’s sake?!), and it was with my mom on her cute little Suzuki. Since I was perched behind Jim on his manly Harley Sportster, I took pictures with my iPhone. Wheee!! I continue to [...]

Mike’s 30th Bday

By in Main, Pictures

Woo hoo! Jim and I had a great time in Cleveland on Saturday night for our friend Mike’s 30th birthday. Click on our purdy faces for a few more pics: We went to Luigi’s afterward for pizza (which drunk Brandice did not track properly at all… drinks = too much pizza and no mathematical skillz), [...]

State of the Hazel Eyeballs

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

Woah! Guess who has contacts after 26 years of wearing glasses every single day of her life? I can’t even express how weird it is. I went to my yearly eye exam last Friday and on a complete and utter whim decided to ask about contact lenses. My fifteen-year-old-looking optometrist cheerfully informed me that we [...]

Ballooooooons

By in Main, Pictures

I took a few shots over the weekend of the Hall of Fame Fest balloons taking off. If you’ve never been to Canton for the HOF Fest, the hot air balloons are by far the coolest part of the whole shindig. Rib burn off is pretty sweet too, but WeightWatchers will put a serious damper [...]

Jim’s Sportster

By in Main, Pictures

Playing around with a shot that I took of Jim’s bike in Camera+, which I continue to heart. ;) He uses the black and white shot for his iPhone 4 background and he’s positioned all of his apps in such a way that they don’t block the picture. (Meaning: He has four pages of apps [...]

State of the Union: Running

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

Here’s a final shot from the last race I did on July 5th. Jessica (right) did the 5-mile and I did the 2-mile and we both had to do some walking because it was over 90 degrees at 8 freaking a.m., but I was really happy with finishing at all. Later though, last Thursday actually, [...]

Tree Canopy

By in Main, Pictures

“We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.” – Anais Nin This is one of my favorite shots lately… such a neat shot to begin with and then I had fun playing with it in Camera+. The quote is just one that I’ve been thinking of a lot lately. What [...]

How married people use FaceTime

By in Main, Pictures

I’ll let you figure out which finger he’s pointing. I was hiding in my car in the driveway making faces while Jim was standing in the garage cleaning his bike. We’re such a mush fest of love and teddy bears. Technology brings us ever closer in our quest to out-neener neener each other.

Absolutely my favorite feature of the new Flickr photo page. I hated having to click around to get the embed code from other screens. Woo!

Beautiful Day

By in Main, Pictures

Just finished an hour long voice memo out on deck. What a beautiful day! Voice memoing to Laura = still a favorite thing to do, even on the NEW iPhone. :) More on my voice memoing adventures some other time. It’s a GREAT way to maintain a long distance friendship in an very sustainable way. [...]

State of the Union: Running

By in Main, Pictures, Wellness

So, I had planned to blog about my second 5k race a week ago, the Jackson Night Glow 5K, but it just didn’t go well and I think I blocked it from my mind after last weekend. I had wanted it to be my first ALL running 5k and it just didn’t happen after I [...]

iPhone 4 Quickie

By in Main, Pictures

Here are the shots I took during the unboxing of my iPhone. A proper review might come later, but mostly I’m just enjoying the phone’s existence. [Photo album if you can't see the slideshow] Things I love: 1. Display quality (holy COW) 2. Camera(s) (HD, 5 MP, front-facing, all gooood) 3. Battery life (it is [...]
