I spent the weekend on the most awesomest trip ever to Seattle with a bunch of my friends from high school. Four days spent laughing, shopping, eating, sleeping, and doing whatever we wanted (including ordering pizza and watching in-room movies at night--I'm 30 years old and have never done that before, how is that possible?) and having no responsibility whatsoever. I had the misfortune to LOSE MY CAMERA CHARGER so I couldn't take any pictures...but I'll try to steal a couple from someone's Facebook page.

(Oh, look, found some! Not sure what is going on with my hair but everyone else looks fab.)

(Aaaaaand, a lovely open-mouth shot. Best seafood bisque I've EVER had.)

On another note, Michael and I just celebrated our FIFTH anniversary. It's hard to believe two people could pack so much into 5 short years. We have 2 (and a half) kids, we lived overseas for 2 years, we've lived in 5 different places of residence, we're on something like our 5th job (some of those were simultaneous), and we still enjoy being together! :) We decided we'd make our anniversary day a 'Happy Birthday to Our Family' party. So we took the kids out to dinner and celebrated our family's 5th birthday! Then we can go out this weekend with just the 2 of us. I can't find anything wrong with celebrating something twice, just means more cake. :)

I love you, sweetheart, and I hope the next 5 are just as adventurous!


  1. Congrats! That is a good idea to have a family "birthday". I like that idea. I might have to steal it. ;)

  2. "Someone's facebook page"? Thanks for the credit. It was a fabulous trip, and congrats on the anniversary!
