Today is my sissy's golden birthday.
She's 27 on the 27th!
I wish I could be there to celebrate with her today, but I can't...
So, I made her this funny picture :)

Love you, Heather!
You the best!

(more) life lately...

Last weekend we went to a new bar/restaurant (new to us) & had some delicious drinks. We were headed down to the waterfront on Saturday, & The Vertible Quandry is located pretty close to the waterfront, so we stopped in for a few drinks. It turns out they have super delicious cocktails, too (espresso martini, yes please!). We later picked up some yummy appetizers at McCormick & Schmick's on the waterfront & snuck in a free concert while we were down there as well.

I love Portland in the summertime because there is always something going on down by the water, or in town. (weather permitting...)

Summer Bucket List

Jillian over at Cornflake Dreams always has the best ideas for blogger link-ups & blog crawls. Today she is hosting a summer bucket list!  (As soon as the weather gets better...) I hope to do a lot of bbq'n, beer drinking & just enjoying the summer weather in the outdoors of the northwest. Here is my list bucket list for this summer!
Part One:

Part Two:

Do you all have a summer bucket list? If so, make sure to link up with Jillian & see what everyone else is up to this summer! :)

Life Lately...

Sunday, June 12, 2011

I've been a bad blogger lately. Let's just blame it on the move to Portland & starting a new job that's going to have me super, super busy! And while I don't really have time for a detailed update right now... I'll make sure to post later on how my new job is going, my new bedroom make-over, & some fun new bars & restaurants we've been spending some time at!

Here is my last day of work, hanging out with some good friends & enjoying a few last baseball games in the sun! (yes we had sun in Seattle!)

Next, I'll share some pics of my new room. I bought some new bedding & I *finally* have a spacious living area to do something with! :) So, come back in the next few days!!

Do you ever check out Smitten Kitchen? I do! & when I saw these, I thought they were just too cute not to share with you all! I know, they're nothing new, but they're still super cute!



If you don't already follow smitten kitchen, you should now! :)

Bye Bye, Seattle...

Friday, June 3, 2011

Dear Seattle,

You've been pretty good to me over the past three years that I've lived here. We've been through a lot together. Good times and bad times. Mostly good times, though. You provided me with a great career that helped push & motivate me to go after an even better one. You've seen me grow into a more confident person. You will now see me follow my heart to another city that has won my heart over many times. Although I am sad to leave you, I am very excited for my new adventure, I hope you understand :) I'm going to miss you, but don't worry, I'll come back & see you soon. I promise.


(p.s. I couldn't leave without taking a trip down memory lane. Here are some of my favorite memories with you...)

view from the space needle...
my neighborhood...
the beautiful skyline...
a great place to work (& have fun)...
showing Luke around my work...
showing Luke a great view of the city...
touristy things...

& I realized that 98.9% of my Seattle pictures over the past three years are either from the ballpark or out at the bars, oops!

It' s been real Sea-town!
