First holiday season in our home

By in Family, Main

Click on my cookie-decorating self to see our Christmas 2010 photo album: This has been SUCH a great holiday season so far, for a lot of reasons. 1. This is our first year truly celebrating the season in this house. Last year we didn’t decorate or put up a tree or exchange gifts. It’s been [...]

Milestone: Size Downgrade!

By in Main, Wellness

Today I decided to do another side-by-side comparison of the person I am this month physically and the person I was in January, two weeks before starting my weight loss journey. Observe: The person on the left was wearing plus size 16 Lane Bryant pants, of which she had three identical pairs, because they were [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

Re-Vavooming the Red

By in Main, Pictures

Amy came over tonight and helped me color my hairs back to their fiery red shade. It faded pretty quickly last time so I’m taking care to preserve the color as long as possible, because I LOVE being a red head. :)

Things accomplished in the past year of our marriage: – We bought a house and moved (WOAH), all right before Christmas. – We adopted two large dogs simultaneously (WOAH), and are in love with them. – We spent time adjusting to our new life (rough sometimes, a [...]

Yard-gasm 2010

By in Main, Pictures

Are you ready to see the fruits of our hard labor throughout the month of May? Here’s a grand tour of our front and back yards just before our Memorial Day cookout. :) It rained overnight and blew some leaves and whatnot into the new mulch, but it still looked great and we’re really proud [...]

First Ever 5K… CHECK.

By in Main, Pictures

This past Monday, on Memorial Day, I ran my first ever 5K. It was rough (damn that kid who gave me my race packet and told me the course was “pretty easy, mostly downhill”), I had to walk twice due to a couple of seriously daunting inclines, I saw stars when I crossed the finish [...]

Air Plants

By in Main, Pictures

I’m really loving my air plants (tillandsia). Anyone else an air plant lover? If you’ve never heard of them, they’re incredibly easy to manage, cheap to buy (tons of them on Etsy), and I think they’re beautiful. No roots, no soil, just some sunlight and weekly water soaking. You can glue them to just about [...]

Succulent Bonzai

By in Main, Pictures

I keep forgetting to post the shots of my fun bonzai succulent… check it out! I purchased it from The Succulent Garden on Etsy, and I initially over-watered it unintentionally, but it’s drying back up to a happy state of affairs. :) I love all the red-tinged succulent noodles… I’m such a succulent junkie. :) [...]

Dishwashers, Doorways, Fur-Spewage

By in Family, Main, Pictures

Old dishwasher that came with the house: New (to us) dishwasher that Jim’s parents no longer need because it was replaced after their house fire (it still works perfectly fine, just needed cleaned up): Jim and his dad were working hard on switching them out today, and then they fixed the downstairs shower so that [...]

Furry Couch Lounging

“In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn’t merely try to train him to be semi-human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.” – Edward Hoagland I’m definitely open to living this kind of existence. :)
