Let the restorations begin!

How appropriate that the new pool liner is being installed on the first day of Summer! Doesn’t it look AMAZING?!

This weekend we'll be working our little behinds off making our wedding invitations (could someone please explain why I didn’t think I had enough to do) painting the downstairs, picking out new carpet and even some demolishing? I can’t wait to get started!

Off to the Races

A great weekend even if some plans fell through...

We’ve never been to the “horse races” before and have always wanted to go… so after work on Friday we headed to Auburn to visit Emerald Downs!  It was such a great night!  The weather was gorgeous for Seattle and it was such a fun thing to do.

We figured out that the peppy ponies were definately the ones to bet on... in the end I was really getting the hang of it!

What’s better than naked people on bikes?  How about 1000 naked people on bikes? The Summer Solstice Parade in Fremont is one of the most eye opening (or eye covering – depending on who you are) things to do in the summer.  After a big breakfast the weather was so balmy we decided to walk the 3 miles to Fremont from our hotel. We found a bar called the Ballroom and had a great seat to watch the parade.  Ran into an old high school classmate that I hadn't seen in 20 years and we ended up having a wonderful day.
Sunday we woke to find out our sky diving trip was canceled due to rain.  That was kind of disappointing but we set out to make the most of our day.  We stopped at Suncadia for a Father's Day brunch and to enjoy the scenery.  It was absolutely beautiful and a nice way to end a great weekend.

Wedding, Babies and Home Improvements

2012… Playing like it’s the last year on earth.

That’s definitely the plan… along with getting married, getting pregnant and renovating a house. Taking on too much?  Nah. My best friend (aka the soon to be husband) is coming along for the ride… so it will DEFINITELY be an adventure, and one that will have us laughing all the way through.
