It's true!

We have proof- we DO do stuff! Contrary to what you may believe, we aren't just boring, non-eventful people. And I have the pictures to prove it. These were all the good pictures I had on my camera.

My homies. Isn't it great to have friends that date back to elementary school and junior high days?? I love being with Ashley and Kaycee. Here's to girl's nights and greasy dinner at Chile's!
Sweet baby Wesley. Isn't he so stinky? And by stinky I mean cute. This is Brett and Lindsey's new baby boy. And if you look closely, that white and brown object in the front right is my new baby... a brand new purse! Way too expense. Way too cute.

Spring Break 2010- camping in Safford. Our first camping trip! It was seriously cold. Three blankets and a highly insulated sleeping bag couldn't keep me from shivering all night long. Things I'm grateful for: not being homeless and memory foam.

My co-workers and I said goodbye to our dear Nathan Askins. Lifetime Fitness feels empty without him. He's serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Brazil. We sure miss you, Mr. Nathan!

EASTER PAGEANT! Worst seats ever. We really enjoyed it though. Thanks to Ashley and Trevor for coming with us. No pictures of our friends, only us. Apparently we only take pictures of ourselves.

Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. Yes, you got it. My first (and definitely last) bar experience. I was way bummed that Toby wasn't there. I guess he really doesn't love that bar and grill.

Two of our most favorite people, Lisa and Tanner! Always so good to see you guys. Good thing I love my in-laws :)

So there you have it. Ryan and I are completely capable of doing stuff. I'm excited for summer time- I'll be sure to document all our cool adventures.

Missin' you lately...

It's like I was taken from my birth mother and put in a foster home for the last 17 years.
"Take me home country road..."

Things I miss most about Washington:

Safeco Field and Ken Griffey Jr. (thank GOODNESS for baseball!)
The joke shop at Pike Place
... everything else at the market for that matter
including the pig statue at Pike.
Evergreen Trees
brick houses
picking berries on Camano Island
homemade jam
grandma and grandpa mac
walker reunions
Ivar's Fish and Chips.... mmm
the wharf (where my obsession with marinas began)
the trashy bums EVERYWHERE in downtown Seattle
riding ferries to different Washington islands
Tim's Cascade Chips
my dog, Elvis
not my cat, Felix. bad Felix.
fresh crab
the absolutely tranquil rain
the music! what a hotspot for rock and roll.
how everyone still dresses like they live in the 90s
mostly... my family.

"Take me home country road, to the place where I belong."
John Denver

Now you wish YOU could live there too, I bet! Hopefully we can go visit soon so I can post my own beautiful pictures of Washington. For now, I'll keep saving my pennies for a trip.
