Day 4-A picture of your night-evening at the beach


Day 52 A picture of your favorite sport


We made it up to the mountain 15 times this year-a record


Well we made it up to the mountain 15 times this year!  With tickets at $56 a pop we would have paid $1,680 for us to both board this many times but we paid $500 for season tickets.  This was money well spent as we so enjoy our time on the mountain.  There's nothing Dave and I can find that's as fun as boarding on our days off so we'll miss this snow terrible.  Cheers though-to a great snowboarding season.

Spring/Summer clothes


It was time for some new jeans and shorts-Jcrew saved me. Here's a look at what I got.  I love the jeans because they are short enough to wear with flip flops and they are lightweight.  I always love jcrews short and this dress is so comfy.

Carrot is Coming



A new baby is coming to live with us tomorrow.  Well, we get him tomorrow and will hide this little bunny for a couple days until Easter arrives..  I got this cage all set and ready for him. It was such a great cage because it came with almost everything I needed.  I did pick up a litter pan, a great little harness for Aaron to walk around with him, some extra food and extra bedding.  Aaron said if he gets a bunny his name will be Carrot because bunnies like carrots.  What a fun Easter!

Fill in the Blank Friday





1.   My favorite daily responsibility is,       my morning workout-I feel it's a responsibility because I feel it's my responsibility to stay in good health.

2.  My least favorite daily responsibility is,    any kind of cooking-which honestly I don't really do-Dave does.  Sometimes I hate my workouts too.

3.  My favorite cuisine to eat when going out is    a gourmet pizza-like pizzacato or a great wood fire one-so I guess Italian cuisine.

4.  My favorite cuisine to prepare at home is    right...We eat a lot of seafood which Dave prepares though.

5.  Andy Warhol said that everyone is famous for 15 minutes. My claim to fame is   approaching I'm betting.

6.  If I could have 3 wishes I would wish      that my family and I would live a long and healthy life, unlimited resources($), a fulfilling job. 


7.  My biggest pet peeve is       messiness and disorganization

1.   The best prank I ever pulled was       The only thing I can think of is my girlfriend and I toilet papered a neighbors house on several occasions in 5th/6th grade. We were so bad-putting honey on the door handles and making terrible messes.


2.  The best prank ever pulled on me was   nothing-I can't think of a prank pulled on me.

3.  A day without     a good workout    is a day wasted.

4.  The most important things in life are- (is) loving God.

5.  I dream of    having enough money to take care of my extended family and their needs, becoming an Olympic runner and/or gymnast, eating yummy foods.

6.  I dread   waking up for work on Sundays.  It just seems like you should sleep in.  I can handle Saturdays early but the second day in a row is harder.


7.  A discovery I made this week was       that this place is so fun! 
Playdate Pdx



Sister Andrea and I took the kids to above play place yesterday! They have giant slides and cool shooting cannons that let you shoot balls everywhere. View of slides:
