Halloween!

We got excited last weekend when John found his costume...

I decided to be his devilish helper.

Some brave young tourist was unafraid of our evilness and offered to take one of both of us :)

Fashion Friday

Socks! The trend continues to this week. Unfortunately if the weather from this week sticks, tights will be on the agenda for next week. I'm thinking about layering the socks though so stay tuned...

Tradition

This year's rendition of "Thriller" for Tease and Tone. Isn't this the cutest army of zombies rising from the dead?

Showtime!

A couple weeks ago, Nic put on this amazing show as his Hawaii developed alias, Nicky Croon. He asked a couple of us girls to dance for it. He gave us simple recordings of our songs and turned us loose to each create our own showgirl style for the show. I took the day to work on my choreography, put together my costume, and take my time getting ready. It was fondly reminiscent of our old Sugar Q days.

We arrived early enough to hang out back stage and get costume-ready together.

We set up a little dancer table full of bubbles, champagne, sparkly and frilly things and it was our job to sit up there and be cute.

Posing and silliness ensued...

The show was so much fun. Nic had the entire room dancing and laughing and generally just having a blast. It was super fun to dance on that little stage with a live band and to have an audience full of party people.

Speaking of dancing, John also made the rounds....
Photobucket
Everyone did a great job and it was exciting to have such a great turnout for this first event.

When we got home Toki helped me unpack my stuff.

What a fun night, I can't wait to do it again!

Fashion Friday

My theme this fall has been knee high socks. I wear them with boots and heels, and with my tennies and booty short for Saturday morning coffee :)I am not ready to start the commitment to tights (although I know it's coming soon). The weather this fall has been so beautiful that it still feels good to have a little bit of bare skin. This particular day, I walked across downtown to visit Char at her new office.
Photobucket
oh yeah, and I wore my wolf skirt.

(i know, right? totally awesome.)

Getaway!

I don't know why we aren't clever enough to spend more Fridays at the coast. John had a meeting Friday morning and then we grabbed a rental car and headed west. We landed here:
Photobucket
Where as we had hoped, we ran into handsome Chris!
Photobucket
We also got to see his lovely bride-to-be, Sam and do a brief catch up with this couple we love. After a stop at the store for some supplies (including champagne and chocolate covered pretzels), we headed back to our hotel for a super enjoyable night of hanging out with the ocean out our window.
Photobucket
In the morning, the obligatory walk down to the beach.

We then packed up and hit the road back to Portland. We stopped along the way to shop a bit at the outlet mall ride this bull.
Photobucket
Since it's such a long drive back to Portland (really, it isn't), we stopped by Ponzi for a little wine and cheese for lunch.

Since it was only early afternoon on Saturday when we got home, we continued our fun by heading downtown to see what we could see...
Photobucket
We walked through the little park areas and crossed through the protest parade.
Photobucket
We saw some art and rode the streetcar.
Photobucket
We walked..
Photobucket
We found sidewalk faces.

and finally found ourselves having snack on top of the city.

When we got home, we nightcapped our delightful journey with a bottle of wine and some Kinect bowling (I totally won). What a delightful weekend.

At least it wasn't my face....

I was jogging along Friday morning and felt a sharp prick in my leg and looked down to see a bee! I quickly pulled my pants away from my leg to shoo him, but it was too late. My mom had recently been stung and had mentioned a remedy for immediately after and I followed her advice and rubbed it with baking soda and cold water. We were leaving for the coast that day, so I made a pack of it held on by a couple bandaids. It ached all day and swelled up. By the next day, the pain had subsided and turned into chronic itching. It was huge. So huge that my pants were tight around the knee. and I could feel it jiggle when I walked.
Photobucket
Looks like I'm not going to be rocking any skirts this week.

Intern

It has been coming for a while, but we finally experienced Bob's last day. He had a nice life living up on the 14th floor and looking over our beautiful city. I rummaged through the work kitchen to find an alternate vase to change up the decor for my handsome new cubemate. Meet Trippy McWire.

Back in action!

Hi! Did anyone even notice that I didn't blog last week? oh well.

I was super busy last week and decided to not add blogging to my list of to-dos. But I like my commitment to this little online diary so I am resuming with the stories that I missed telling!

John and I were walking to coffee one morning and saw a guy wearing this ridiculous shirt with two arrows. I made fun of him. Later that day, we were at the Buffalo Exchange and John came up to me holding the exact shirt and said "I'm buying this and wearing it and you can't stop me."
Photobucket

I pretended not to know him for the rest of the day.
