August Highlights 2013

We got to see a couple good movies:

Aaron got this one:

I got to go to see beautiful homes here:
My stepson Austin came for a visit-we got to go to Ruth Chris Steak house to celebrate his 19th Birthday!

Here's his paintballing minifigure since Austin paint balls.

Austin and his Dad got to do some motorcycling together and we spent an afternoon at Aaron's favorite place: Big Al's for video games and air hockey.


Austin's best friend Tanner had an amazing wedding!

Aaron got to go to dance camp

and skateboard camp

and bouldering camp

I got a couple fun gifts for my birthday:
Here I am with my cheerleading minifigure-an ode to high school days.

This great shirt by Meadow Rue at Anthropologie.  Mine has really cute buttons in the back. It sold out fast.


A new Ipad

This great Pottery Barn tote in the camel color.

The archeress chemise from -here-I can't wait to wear it for the Renaissance Fair next month and for Halloween.

A family vacation to the mountain

Where we celebrated Mom and my birthdays.

And a great mountain bike ride with my Uncle and Cousins.

New Dingo boots- here

A weekend at the mountain again helping with this Hood to Coast relay: Here. Aaron loved hanging out with his buddy in the pool and doing the neat activities here. Jayden and Aaron were just tall enough for the bigger go carts!

The boys tried to get the sauna as hot as they could stand it which ended up being 70-funny boys.

What a great month.

Skater boy

Aaron is loving skating lessons.  He goes to here and his teacher Hunter is amazing. The owner Kevin is so great too.  I even have gotten a chance to skate with him at the park. 
 He has a big smile here because he earned a new skate hat by working hard.

Western Boots

I was searching for just the right boot for a western themed wedding. I tried these:
Justin Gypsy Cowgirl-too clunky for the dress I am wearing
And these:
Stetson Boots from Zappos-They cut into the back of my leg because they were too tall.

The Dingo Roni boot was the winner from Country Outfitter though. I love them!

The Wrong Side of 30!

So, I turned 36 today.  Hubby jokes that now I'm I on the wrong side of 30.  However, I'm having the time of my life and love getting older.  Here's some of my highlights of the past year:

I got to be a bridesmaid in my dear friend Emily's wedding.  I also got to host the bachelorette party which was great fun.

We hosted an 80's themed Halloween party!

A New Year's Eve bash with friends and fireworks on Mt Hood

A trip to Maui and Kauai-I got to see my little boy surf!

A huge food fight at the Duck's themed party we threw for our friend Kelley

A great mountain getaway with friends where we ran, swam and enjoyed one another:

I ran my fastest half marathon at the Harvest Days Half-1:51-an 8:33 min average which I was happy with.

We totally remodeled the backyard and it's so incredible now!

I found an amazing trail running group to run with.
The hubby and I celebrated 13 years of marriage!
I loved making videos from pictures as gifts via Smilebox. I made a great one for my Sister, Mom and Cousin.
It's been a great year and I'm excited for this next one.
