First Trip of 09

It's been 6 months since I last left Seattle. A trip was long overdue. Not that I don't love Seattle but 6 months is a long time for me and I needed a change in scenery. So, we went to Portland for a visit.

Our first night there Sue BBQed half a cow for us. Owen helped, of course.
I also received a lovely birthday gift (art supplies) and we had a great dinner.

The next morning we woke up to barking and breakfast.
It was a nice, sunny weekend and we decided to enjoy it to the fullest...By hiking Beacon Rock and hanging out in The Gorge!

After our hike we headed back to town to eat at Tad's. Scott was dying to have a big bowl of chicken and dumplings.
Later in the evening we met up with Joe, Will and Zach to have desert and shoot the breeze a while.

The following morning we got up to once again start the day off right...more food. Then we went downtown to browse at Powell's and have fancy cake at Papa Haydn's with Shawn. On our way out of town we went to experience IKEA for the first time with Sue as our guide.

It was nothing fancy but it was our little vacation.
And the most important thing was...We had a good time. :)

Don't You Forget About Me

What's better than going to the prom?
Going to the 80's Prom!

We had a blast dancing to 80's hits (all covered by the great Dudley Manlove Quartet).

It was totally worth getting dressed up for. (Plus I looked goooood!) :)

Happy Birthday to meeeeeee!

So-I am another year older now. Not that it really changes much but just the same's happened.
This year it was decided that we would go out to this great Hawaiian place downtown to celebrate another year of life down the drain....errr, I mean passing by in bliss.
Anyway- Rachel and I went and had our nails done and then caught the bus downtown. We met up with Scott, Justin and Sam (plus a few others).
I really like the place we went because they have great food, an outstanding Happy Hour and BLUE DRINKS! The blue drinks were the highlight of the night and MANY were drank by the time we left.
Needless to say, I had a great time!

After food and drinks we decided that it was time for....More drinks (and some karaoke)!
We spent the rest of the night singing, dancing and and being merry.
It was a the best birthday I have had in a long time.
