Sunny Texas!

It is Thursday July 12th and I'm just about to pack up and head back to Portland after spending a week in sunny San Antonio with my family :(

It has been so awesome and I'm so bummed to leave.

Steve was here for the first 4 days and we had such a great time! My parents , sister and aunt and uncle have been so great and have made our engagement really special. My mom threw a mini engagement party for us. You can check out some pictures on picasa and video of Steve's mad cork popping skills on youtube!

We also spent a lazy afternoon floating down the Comal River and I tried on wedding dresses for the first time with my mom, aunt and sister yikes!

I can't believe this trip is almost over...

Wisconsin Trip

We just got back from an AWESOME trip to Wisconsin!
We got to spend some great time with Steve's mom, dad and grandma. Steve got a much needed Brewers fix when we went to Miller Park to see the Brew Crew take on the Astro's game with Andy, Shelley, Zac and Jeremy! I got to spend time with my two great friends Jessica & Jamie. I even met Jessica's little boy Drew for the first time. What a babe!!

Kev & Jill's wedding reception was a blast! All our love and congratulations to them!

Thanks all for such a great trip. As always, the time flew! Can't wait to go back :)

We're Engaged!

Yes, Steve and I are officially taking the plunge!

This weekend we took a side trip to Crater Lake on our way to a friend's wedding in Grants Pass. We'd been wanting to see Crater Lake ever since we moved out here, but it is about a 4.5 hour drive from Portland, so we just hadn't made the time until now.

It was sooo beautiful, really breathtaking and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day!

We hiked around a little, stopped for drinks at the lodge and then towards the end of the day Steve and I stopped to sit and look out over the lake before hitting the road again. That's when he popped the question! Little Parker was even there for the big moment! ;) We are so excited and hope all of our friends will be able to make it out for our big day. We're hoping for something next summer, preferably July. We'll keep you all posted!

New to Blogging

I've been wanting to blog for awhile now, but don't really know much about it. It seems to me that most blogs are sort of just one person's musings and rantings made interactive. So, I guess that's how I'll start! I don't have that much to share really, but you all know that if there is one thing I am, it is a talker. Now I guess I'll attempt to be a writer as well! I figure this might be a nice way to keep in touch with those of you who I don't get to see all that often. So bear with me as a begin this new hobby! Enjoy reading about my ordinary life and please comment back about yours!

Happy Reading!
