I finally managed to get some of the pictures I've taken over the past year with my cell phone camera.. onto my computer! Thought I'd share... including the final picture... of me tonight after an attempt to start going back to blonde at the hair salon! :)


View from Chimney Beach in Lake Tahoe, July 2009

At Willamette Valley Vineyards tasting deck, outside of Salem, OR... June, 2009

During a bike ride along the beach, Santa Cruz, January 2009 (can't wait to go back!)...

Tonight, September 23, 2009... after getting my hair done... check out the caramel highlights... I think I'm working my way back to being blonde!
Tonight, aside from getting my hair done, I also watched Glee on Fox. I swear, that show gives me goose bumps when people hit really good notes. That's all it takes. I think I might be hooked.

Okay, so here's the real reason I'm hooked. This freakin' girl who got the lead in the show is awesome! The goosebumps I get are mostly courtesy of her singing...

Okay, this is ridiculous... while looking at Glee videos, I found this group of guys. Really?

Okay, time to quit playing internet and go to sleep!

Catching up...

My goodness... I've been a busy girl, and I have so many fun photos to share from the past couple of weeks! Things have been good... just busy with work and family and friends. It's been a lovely Indian summer in Portland... lots of sunshine still... and lots of fun things ahead. Here's what I've been up to! :)

Coyla Monster and I hit up the State Fair!

... and saw the Katy Perry concert that night. :)

Dinner at Julie and Donald's... Grandma LOVES Mike!

...and Kai LOVES me!

Kelly and I made dinner a few nights later... and drank Gay wine. How appropriate! ;)

My first Timbers game. Freakin' AWESOME!

The next day... my first official round of golf!
I scored a 69 for the round... on a par 45. Oh well. :)

And that night... a bachelorette party for Val. :)

I'm so glad we bought a camera earlier this Spring that doesn't need so many batteries -- it's so much easier to take pictures, so I'll keep 'em coming.



P.S. Countdown to New York trip... 2 weeks from today. YAY!!

Yay for Outdoor Concerts!

What a fun evening! Last night Grandma, Julie, Kai and I headed out for the season opener of the Oregon Symphony -- a free, outdoor concert at Waterfront Park. It was a perfect evening for a show, and Kai didn't freak out too much from the music at all. A bottle of wine, some "picnic-y" snacks, and tears to Grandma's eyes when the music started all came together for an enjoyable time!

Our view of the stage and the Steel Bridge...
Grandma et moi...

Julie y mi...

A beautiful shot from our spot... look at the beautiful full moon. Love this picture!

And more fun ahead tonight... I'm taking Coyla to the Katy Perry concert at the Oregon State Fair in Salem. I don't know who's more excited... her or me. Should be good times! Yay for 3 day weekends! :)
