wayyy too much snow now

Chris, Colin, Ryan, Marlin, Jonah, Eli, Graye at the Doug Fir. We all walked there and met up for some hot toddies. We have SO much snow, I have never lived like this! I tried to take Chris to work on Saturday, but slid everywhere and couldn't make it up hills, so my car is stuck 4 blocks from our apartment. It's been fun walking everywhere, but if it doesn't melt we won't be able to make it down to Corvallis for Christmas! Lets hope it goes away within the next couple days!!
Pony Village in the middle of Burnside. No cars at 8pm.... ghost town!

Winter Wedding

Geoff and Celeste got married at Edgefield on Sunday! Sooo fun! Pictures are out of order, but you get the idea. Such a pretty snowy, winter wedding.

Seriously, the news needs to settle down a little. I find it very amusing how the local news stations create a huge buzz around snow. It never even sticks! Maybe this year is different...

We'll see!

I hope it doesn't get too crazy on Sunday. Our friends Geoff and Celeste are getting married at Edgefield. Yay! Can't wait.


I officially finished my last term at PSU on Tuesday night, and I'm done! After my final I went to my work and my nice regulars, Curtis and Wayne, bought me a celebratory drink. They were so excited! It was nice to celebrate right after my final. But now, it feels very strange to not get up early and head to campus on a Thursday morning. I'm going to need to find a new hobby, because I only work 4 nights a week right now, and I think I'm going to go nuts... Any ideas? I will play more guitar, cook more meals, clean the little apartment more, and do more laundry. Those are the things that have been avoided while I was in school.

Also, as I was checking out everyone's blogs and waching The View, I spilled tea ALL down my sweatshirt. Nice.

Hmmm.... maybe we should have a baby!

(AJ was upset... but still trying to smile. Ha!)
Our babe for now :)
Just kidding! ( But seriously, I'm a little baby crazy. Hormones? My age? AJ? )

everytime I login to post something, I'm like..."who cares!"

I mean, I love reading everyones blogs and find them VERY interesting because I could look for hours. Maybe not hours, but I do my fair share of blog-stalking. It's a nice break from writing a paper or studying or being bored before going to work.

So, here are a few things to mention:

*I'm done with school in 3 weeks.
*I got a new tattoo! Pictures coming soon, it needs to heal first.
*Chris got a hair cut. YES. I did it, and it looks nice.
*I will be leasing a brand new 2009 Toyota Corolla in a few weeks. Leasing is a great option for me because your payment is much lower than buying, your car is under warranty for 3 years, at the end of your 3 years you have option to buy - or, you just lease another brand new car, and I get a discount because I will be graduating: my security fee will be waived, $400 rebate AND free roadside assistance for 1 year!cute, huh?

We had a party!
Riley and Jenny made me vegan chocolate chip cookies! They were amazing! How does everyone know I like sweets so much? Thanks guys! (Jenny is hiding from the camera)

Julia made me a kitty cake! This was after the tail was eaten. Mmm soo good!
Weird squinty smiles...

Chris took me to a super yummy/nice restaurant, Paley's Place. Look it up, SO GOOD. Here he is looking so sweet :) Thanks friends for all the wishes!

Happy Halloween!

Tuesday, October 28, 2008


This past weekend we celebrated my birthday in Corvallis. I was most excited to play with AJ! I quickly learned that Grandpa and AJ have a new activity they like to do together. I'm not really sure what to call it...or what my dad was thinking when he made it up! Let's just say that Grandpa is very innovative, and having practice with children definitely shows!

Here's how it went...

AJ gets on the pool floaty...

Pull Grandson around the yard on the floaty...
Oops, fell down because Grandpa was pulling so fast!

That's okay! I'll just run back and hop on again!

Pull Grandson into the house...
Uh oh, Grandpa walked away. AJ's not happy!
Now he's happy! Say "cheese!"
