OH Canada!!!

Can you guess where I am heading???

Yay! David is gone this whole week hiking with his friend around Mt. Hood on the Pacific Crest Trail, but when he gets home we are headed up to Vancouver B.C. for the week! I am so excited! I have been there, but just for the day... I have never really stayed and explored. We are going to rent bikes or mopeds and ride them around Stanley park. We are going to go to a really cool hot springs that you can only get to by boat! We might go whale watching... we are going to a really cool suspension bridge. This makes not talking or seeing him for a whole week... OK.. because I know when he gets back we are out of here for a week! And then my friends.. I am afraid to tell you this.. but.... dun dun dun.. The HOLIDAY season will be upon us.. before we know it, Halloween.. and then that slips right into Thanksgiving and HELLO CHRISTMAS! Are you ready?? I'm NOT! Lets not get to carried away... For now I am just going to look ahead to CANADA!!

One Year!

This is as close as we dare get so soon! LOL

This is David and I on our first real date! We met for the first time in "Real Life" on August 13th 2009.. one yr ago tomorrow. We had been talking on the phone and internet for about 3 months.. before I finally agreed to go out with him. I remember like it was yesterday... I kept putting him off, canceling dates the morning of... saying I would go to stuff when I really had no intention of following through..I don't know what I was thinking! But let me tell you.. THAT ALL CHANGED WHEN I MET HIM IN REAL LIFE! Until I actually met the person behind the voice and the typing.. all was fair in love and war! I actually told him at one point.. He was never going to meet me, and he should give the concert ticket he had bought me to someone else cause I wasn't gonna go. The night of the concert, I ended up going to (our third date) was our first kiss! Gosh.. If I could go back I wouldn't have been so LAME! Anyways.. He text me about 9 am in the middle of the week and asked me if I wanted to meet him for lunch on my break... because he randomly had the day off for a dentist appt. I remember telling my mom "well I ran out of excuses...I guess I will have to go." Now that I look back on it.. It wasn't even about David.. It was more about me... It wasn't that I didn't like him, I just actually thought he wouldn't like me. Anyways, So I met him really close to my office at a little teriyaki place. I remember driving up and not wanting to get out of the car. I was on the phone with Katie and she talked me into it.. seriously..I don't know why I was so nervous. I drove around the parking lot, debating if I was gonna actually go or just drive away, when he saw me. Soooo I had to park and get out! And things went great.. I really liked him! Shortly after that.. about a week later we went hiking. (pictures above)

I always tell him I like our story, that I was so wrong... and ended up falling in love. That makes it so much more interesting. Gives us character.. hahahah. He says "I was just mean." But whatever you wanna call it.. I have to say it was God's plan, not mine or his!

Music to my ears!

Lilith Fair 7/03/10 The Gorge in George!

Hello! How is your summer? Mine is going great! I wish I could be outside more.... but someone has to pay the bills! This yr. has been full of concerts... We just got back from Lilith Fair... we are going to Third Day this weekend.. we had tickets to U2 but that was canceled cause Bono had back surgery.. Bob Dylan was a few months ago.. and we are going to him again with John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson in Sept.. and that is just to name a few. What can I say, David loves live music. I of coarse do too.. but I was always the type who just loved it.. but never bought the tickets.. and then wished I would have.. he actually purchases stuff and goes to it.. what a concept?!!! The reason I love concerts besides the obvious fact that it is entertaining and awesome to see someone live... Is that it gives me something to look forward to. I have realized lately I live, to look forward to stuff. If I have something in the future planned it keeps me going.. gets me through all the boring days at work, the sitting inside while the sun shines. So for now I am looking forward to seeing Mac Powell this weekend... and if you know me at all.. you know Mac is my Guy!

SO MUCH.......


This is a pic I stole of a cool house in New Mexico! So I am so excited sitting here at work thinking about the fun stuff I have in store! This Friday I have the James Taylor concert... Then I leave for vacation on the 29th of this month, for two weeks. We are going to be flying into Albuquerque New Mexico and picking up our rental car. We are going to be looking at tons of stuff around New Mexico...( for some strange reason, I have always wanted to go to NM) White water rafting the Rio Grande.. and then off to Texas.. we are going to see the Alamo, NASA, Six Flags and Sea World, and everything else we feel like looking at. Then we are heading east to Louisiana! New Orleans and all that Jazz! And then up to Arkansas to go to Hot Springs National Park, a pit stop in Oklahoma City.. and much more. I don't really have time to list all the stuff we want to see.. but lets just say IT IS ALOT! But I am so excited!!! Then when we get home, there is the U2 concert... David's Bday, my Bday, our 1 yr. Anniversary..... Gosh... I am tired just thinking about all of it. But I wouldn't want it ANY other way! BRING IT ON!!!!

Why does my life have to be difficult?

I DON'T WANT TO MOVEEEE!!!!!!! But it looks like we are going to have to! I just moved in and now I am moving out? I don't know if I have said this before, but I HATE CHANGE! That my friends is the only reason I don't want to move. I have a fear of the unknown! WHAT IF??? WHAT IF??? And I really like our large living room... But, WE HAVE MOLD! Kayli's room is full of mold.... she has been sleeping on the living room fold out couch bed. And now there are spots in my room.. The landlord has tried to clean it.. but I am thinking there is no bleach and water solution for this problem! I think it may just be spreading it around. So.... It has been long enough of Kayli not having her own room.. and I have had enough of that musty wet place making my clothes stinky and damp. So the we must start the search for a new CASA! Wish us luck!

Hiker Guy

So.... When I first met David, I called him "Hiker Guy" instead of David, to everyone but him.
And turns out that is exactly what he is! A HIKER GUY! I have gone on more hikes in the last 7 months then my whole entire 26 yrs of living. I have never ever hiked in the winter.. I didn't even have winter hiking boots.. only summer hiking sandals. So first things first.. He took me over to REI and we picked out a good pair of hiking boots. Fast forward 7 months and I am hiking almost every weekend. That is not to say I am the best hiker... I have definitely got better... but still have a long way to go. Some days I do really good.. and some other days I just want to sit down and pitch a fit! Some how he always gets me to go further then I ever intended on going in the first place. He almost sneaks in more miles then he originally promised!! But over all there is almost nothing more I would rather be doing on a Saturday afternoon, then hiking with my Honey, with a lunch in my backpack, walking my dog! Although sometimes I am cursing my decision to fall in love with a Hiker Guy, while I climb endless switchbacks... It is ALWAYS worth it in the end! I am so looking forward to warm summer hikes, that involve swimming in random bodies of water we come across this summer! Happy Hiking!
