We have been trying to figure out this moving situation. I have a phone interview tomorrow afternoon-exciting! Hopefully it goes well and I can give my notice soon. We started doing a little bit of packing yesterday. Tonight we are meeting some friends after work for beers and conversation.

Chris leaves for Vancouver tomorrow morning...and I wont see him til Thursday night, when I get down there :( I cant believe how crammed this coming weekend is going to be. Friday, we are going to look for a place to rent, then Saturday, we have hotel reservations in Kirkland, then Sunday, we are going to tour Red Hook-since Im a lame ass and have never gone on a brewery tour. WTF. I know!

Im just really looking forward to being settled again. Lots of uncertainties lately. Its hard to try and plan out moving when I dont even have a job lined up. And trying to find a rental that will allow 3 pets. Oh yeah, and trying to plan a wedding reception. Gah!!! Trying to stay organized. And positive. I really am excited for this new chapter of our lives. I really cant wait to be in a new city! YAY!

At least MF will be in good company if we have to leave her with the Custer's for 6 months :)

Enjoying a sunny afternoon at the park.

Pretty self explanatory

Trying to 'get rid of' strawberry ice cream and fruit loops. God, fruit loops are my FAVE!!!

An oldie...from last April. I kind of miss my bangs...and that striped top...

I was so proud that I got Madison into jammies and bed all by myself. Thats before she woke up screaming.

The poppies are finally blooming. They are humungous.

Just for fun-since its been awhile ;)

This rose bush is going crazy! So many blooms.

Aw! Its so pretty! I will miss you, car scratching rose bush!

Taco truck. Best tasting burrito EVER. Did make me sick the entire next day though.

The little night light projector-view from laying in bed, looking at the ceiling.

MF enjoying helping us pack.

Madisons new look.

Trying to escape. I laughed SO long about this. I literally had tears streaming down my face.

Well, there you have it. Trying not to drink my weight in coffee this morning. Stayed up past my bedtime watching Freaks and Geeks. Good stuff! We only have one more episode to go! Damn. I hope this week is over before I know it. Its going to be hard going 3 days without seeing Chris. Jeeze, I really am a lame ass ;)

This weekend we:

1.) Went to a Bellingham Bells game to celebrate Fathers Day-they won!
2.) Grilled beer brats with my parents, mother in law, bro, Meredith and Baby.
3.) Finally got the cat shaved. She is a nudist at heart, so shes in HEAVEN.
4.) Saw Ironman 3. Id heard it was kind of meh, but I really liked it!
5.) Just a cute pic of Madison and MF. Best of Friends. Awwww :)

Big things happening

Wow. So, Chris got the job and we will be moving to Vancouver!!! We dont have a definitive plan yet, as we are waiting for me to find a job down there before we start looking at neighborhoods/houses/etc. But still! Exciting! After we found out that this would be our new course, I for sure had a few 'moments' but now Ive gotten used to the idea that its really happening and I. AM. STOKED. Seriously. We already have a bunch of stuff planned for this summer-in this neck of the woods-so trying to get down there before fall probably wont happen. But it could! I suppose that if I found a job and gave my 2 weeks here, we could potentially HAVE to be down there pronto. I guess we'll just have to wait and see! So, life has been pretty busy lately. But heres what we've been up to.


Schnitzel at Herb Neimanns. DELISH! One of my favorite places ever.

Self portrait class. Dont worry, it looks better now...kind of...

Garage sale find. A mini tinsel tree!

Meow! I planted some thyme in Mamma cat and her kittens went to live with Michelle!

Soakin up the sun in the backyard. With G&T's

Crazy sun rainbow thing.

Outrageously prices flowers.

Casa que pasa potato burrito-deep fried covered in sauce. MMM Out with the girls for Ambers Bday

Dessert and coffee-after the massive burrito

Morning snuggles

She is big enough to play in this thing now!

MF's supervised outside time.


Chips and cheese/salsa in bed. While watching Arrested Development. I have such a perfect husband :)

A huge glass of ginger kombucha-also in bed.
Well, I guess that about sums it up.
Tonight Im getting my hair done. New Style!
Tomorrow is:
Michaels last day working with us and Bellingham Bells game with the fam to celebrate Fathers Day
Saturday is:
Taking the cats to the vet to get teeth cleaned. AND Murderface gets shaved!
Hopefully having parents over for beer brats on the grill! YAY! SUMMER!!!!
Sunday is:
Doing absolutely nothing.
