The time has come for me to move on to another address, at least temporarily. I'm going to try out squarespace for the next few months. It has some cool/different features than are available on blogspot, and I've been wanting a change. If I end up not liking it, I'll come back here.

Please follow me over to: I'd also love your feedback!

old-fashioned way to keep cool

trip to the thrift store

answering machine graveyard

my new commute takes me through the edge of Seattle's International District. This isn't the greatest picture, but check out the cool dragon guy circling the pole on the corner!

sneak preview

our house is still very much in transition -- but here you can catch a glimpse of the drawers built into my closet, the shade of yellow we painted our living room ("churchill hotel hazy yellow") and the very nice job jason did hanging curtains.

scene from last weekend

look who came to visit!

Jason had convinced me we were going on a little trip for my birthday. He told me to pack a bag and we went to the airport Friday evening, where I was going to find out what the trip was as soon as our tickets printed out of the machine. But instead, when we got there, we found my sister standing around the ticketing area. There were many tears of laughter and a LOT of explanations on the way home from the airport. I had tried to think of every possible weekend trip we could possibly be taking, but I had completely ruled out seeing brooke or other family members because I knew exactly what everyone was supposed to be doing this weekend. Turns out brooke's story was a lie!

What an awesome birthday surprise. It has been years since brooke & I have spent our birthday together (yesterday was her birthday, too!). Happy birthday, sister! And Jason deserves huge kudos for thinking up the idea, putting up with my pestering questions, and arranging for everything to happen. This was definitely a memorable birthday.

oh my goodness, oh my goodness!

Jason pulled off a BIG birthday surprise for me with the help of brooke & the rest of the family. I'll tell the whole story soon!

I found Leinie's in Seattle!

car wash!

we didn't actually get a car wash, but we sure heard some kids yelling to advertise their car wash while we filled the car with gas last weekend! i caught the loudest yell-er in the reflection of my side mirror.

quick snap

I took a quick picture in the bus tunnel the other day. My commuting bus routes stay above ground, so I haven't been down to the tunnel in a long time.

yesterday's adventure

we took a trip to bainbridge island! Pretty safe to say that I love making the trip over there.

i always think the cranes look like brontosauruses.

our friend ty likes to take pictures even more than i do.

jason made everyone in the bookstore laugh when his cell phone rang, really loudly, in the middle of the quiet store.

(really? it would be wrong to go without visiting the awesome yarn shop.)
