Blazer game

Saturday I went to the blazer game with my friend Ramy and her husband Ryan. It was good we were there cause we were holding the walls up for everyone. Yep, we were in the very last row. The seats were decent though and could see the court well. And the blazers won!

Snowboarding Day #4

Katie and I headed up to the mountain after I got off work on Monday. I had some crazy whim. I don't know if I'm going to do that again. Anyways, we went for about 2.5 hrs. It was really cold. 10 degrees F I think with the wind chill. So towards the end of our day, Katie's lip was frozen. I guess this is a usual thing that happens to her when its cold. It was pretty funny because her lip was numb like she went to the dentist of something. Hopefully this picture does it justice. Look on the right side. Katie is probably gonna kill me for putting this up. But it's funny.

Country Western Bar

Thursday night some of the ladies went out on the town. After going to green dragon we had the brilliant idea to go to Duke's, a country western bar way out in SE. It was fun, although we mainly just watched the country western dancing experts. We know now to go earlier and take lessons. So instead we rode the mechanical bull that they had there. I only have a few pictures because my battery died. Sad. Cristina is up

My turn
Getting props from the operator. I made it past the 8 seconds. Maybe I have found a new calling? Or not...I think i will just stick with nursing.

Lazy Sunday, Blazer Monday

Cool faucet at the Tin Shed in NE. Great place for breakfast. Just make sure you dress warm because you sit outside and it can be quite cold. I was happy that Cristina and I had worked out earlier. That kept us warm... Later on Saturday I took my little and her sister swimming. I would have gone, but my nose was already super stuffy and swimming would only make that worse. They had fun, which is what was important.

Sequoia and her sister Sierra

Sunday was filled with doing a whole lot of nothing. I made family breakfast at my house for Cristina, Matt, Lester, and Katie. My french toast, eggs, and bacon were a hit. Then, it was a lazy Sunday. Later in the evening I went to Tex's birthday party. Fun times.

Monday night I went to the Blazer game with some friends from work. It was another great time. And the blazers won, which is always good. Greg Oden, or Groden as I like to call him, had his career high.

The ladies...Cristina is so excited for her first blazer game.

We were the second to last row from the back....It doesn't matter, we still had fun.

Courtney Turned 30!

Courtney turned 30 last week and to celebrate we went out to the Ambassador for Karoke. It was a great time, lots of music, dancing, music oh and pictures. Somehow I have 150 pictures from that night. Didn't feel like posting them all cause blogger takes forever, so if you want to see them they are on facebook. I think Courtney had a great time. Heck I even got up and sang Beauty and the Beast with my friend Matt.Birthday girl

Snowboarding Day 3

Last Monday I headed up to the mountain with my friend Beachhouse. We weren't sure how the weather was going to be. It was cloudy and rainy down in Portland, but once we got up on the mountain this is what we saw...Blue skies, absolutely amazing.... Katie getting geared up

Yep....I live near here
I don't know why I posted this but it looks interesting. Weird lighting and stuff...Katie was taking a picture of the beauty with her phone as well.
All in all it was a good day. Katie and I hit it pretty hard without taking a break. By noon we were pretty tired and headed home. That is the beauty of having a season pass. Can't wait for the next trip....although we could really use some more snow. Come on Mother Nature

New Years 2009

New Years Eve was a blast. Megan, Trevor, Cristina, Matt and I went to the Crystal Ballroom for New Years Nation. There were two bands, a dj, dancing, drinks, champagne and a great night. It was fun to dress up. I felt like I was in high school again. Sorry the pictures are so late. There were a lot of random photos, not a whole lot to choose from. Megan and Trevor have better ones.

New Gym

By the way....Our gym moved out of its tiny space on Friday into its new much larger home. The first workout on Saturday was so much fun. It was great to workout with so many people and some new faces. I can't wait to see what this new year will bring in the new space.

Check 1,2,3...

Yes I am here. Life has just been so busy. Lots of updates and pictures to come, maybe even some videos from karoke the other night. Mom and Dad I'm alive. Alright, off to snowboarding today, updates coming soon.
