I Recant my Last Post

I couldn't help posting about this new, fabulous tote my Mother-in-law sent me today from her New York birthday trip.
I love it and couldn't help sharing.
Thank you Julie!
I have to say, maybe it's because of the busy summer lifestyle, the traveling, the moving, the playing, the dinners with friends, the beautiful weather, etc, i'm just not into the blog right now. Lame, yes, but such is life.

One last Summer trip to Oregon

Because my brother Matthew Frank is getting married this Saturday evening.
I love this hippy, fly-fishing bro of mine.

A Perfect August Evening

Tonight our family rode our bikes downtown to Coeur d'Alene Brewery. Here, we enjoyed a Vanilla Burboun Stout, a big bacon-cheddar-burger, and a salad and fries. wow, deliciously satisfying.
There are those nights when nothing sounds quite like a burger. Tonight was one of those nights, and I regret nothing about our night out.

On our way home we stopped by Friendship Square and let Colson get his wigglies out before bed time.

is not life so funny?

Today I wanted to wash the car, and the automatic car washes here in Moscow frankly, don't work. They have a no-touch policy and only spray your car with soap and water - not worth $6! I only had $2 in quarters today to do the do-it-yourself wash. I know from previous experience that this usually takes 2 applications, totaling $4 in quarters. Like I said, I only had change enough for one go-around. This was going to be the speed-wash of my life. I put my quarters in the slot with the spray wand in one hand, ready to go when the 4 minute clock started to tick down. Go! I was spraying and running around that car with all my might, then scrubbing with the big brush, up and down, up and down, side to side, running around in a frantic. I hope so badly someone was there to see. I was even laughing at myself when I looked up at Colson strapped into the back seat. He was also quite entertained and also laughing at my escapade. I scrubbed and sprayed until the last second, just finishing in the nick of time. I'm sure there are a few spots here and there that I missed, but overall, the car looks shiny clean. Not a bad way to save a couple dollars and a great excuse to laugh at yourself! You should try it sometime.

And all of this is just the beginning...

Abandoned Blog

Yes, I know, my blogging definately stinks right now. We've been on vacation, which i could not write about because it was a suprise birthday party that took us to Oregon. We had a fantastic time laying by the pool, reading Harry Potter, playing chess, and watching cousins play until they dropped. It was fantastic!

and now we're back...but my blog isn't really back....

we're moving this week. i'm going to be a busy mama and will catch you up with pictures when life slows down.

question: if you knew you were going to move in a year, would you paint an apartment the color of choice under the stipulation that you would have to paint it back when you moved?
